These ultra crispy chicken cracklings are really easy to make and made slightly healthier because they are baked rather than fried.
Mr. K loves chicken cracklings. He gets really excited if he ever sees it on a menu. So this past weekend, I decided to try making my own.
I was surprised at how easy they were to make. It took only about 30 minutes and they are baked rather than fried, which let me feel slightly less guilty. I can’t decide which side looks better– the side with all the seasoning or the plain golden back side.

I’m always curious about Happy Hour specials at restaurants and I’ve been wanting to check out the one offered at Seasons 52.
Seasons 52′s version of Happy Hour is called “Flights & Flatbreads.” It’s offered everyday until 6pm. For $15, you get a sample flight of three wines (you can choose the red or white collection or their acclaimed collection for $5 more), a full glass of your favorite wine from the flight, and your choice of one of their signature flatbreads (regularly priced between $8-10). The wine flights change periodically to keep things interesting.

The wines are accompanied with tags that name the wine and discuss its characteristics, a very helpful aid.

I’ve spent the last few days trying to make Baileys flavored brownies. Most of the Baileys brownie recipes I’ve come across usually involve a Baileys flavored frosting, but I don’t like working with frosting.
The challenge is that if you have a very chocolaty brownie, the chocolate will overpower the Baileys. But if you reduce the chocolate, you’re left with a dry, non-fudgy brownie.
