Posted by in Recipes, Savory

I know, I know. It’s the dead of winter (in the northern hemisphere, at least,) and when it’s this cold, I often want to eat like a caveman and keep myself warm with as much HOT food as possible. However, it’s the middle of the day, the sun is shining on top of all this snow and I thought, let’s look ahead...

Home-Made Junk Food: Corn Dogs

Dec 04, 13 Home-Made Junk Food: Corn Dogs

Posted by in Recipes, Savory

So my chums are not immune to junk food…far from it. Particularly after we’ve been to places like Coney Island, they want cotton candy, strings of licorice and yes, corn dogs, all at home. Of those three, I figured corn dogs couldn’t be that hard to make, and I was right. I started online searching other...
