Finger lickin' good!

Aaron McCargo, Jr. of BIG DADDY'S HOUSE!!


Okay, I'm far from being a great cook. Probably far from being a good cook. However, last night I somehow turned into, at least, a great cook for one night. I'm a big fan of the show, "The Next Food Network star" and the winner now has a show called "Big Daddy's House." He makes some yummy food and makes it look easy. I have watched many a Food Network Chef make fried chicken, but I never once was inspired to try it myself until Big Daddy. He made it look easy. He didn't need his own deep fryer or a special oil thermometer. No, he just used a big frying pan and the back of a wooden spoon to tell the temperature and voila, fried chicken. So, I tried it and if I don't mind myself saying, it really was finger lickin' good. I attempted to take a picture, but my camera is suspiciously dead (kamryn) and sadly, I don't know how to charge it...or at least, I have no idea which cord, out of the 5 million we have, charge it. So you just have to trust me and Jason when we say it was good. (The chicken looked pretty similar to this but without all the pretty green stuff on the plate).



So thanks Big Daddy...for making me feel like a great cook for at least one night.

Hey Amy! I guess we all have another thing in common...cuz we LOVED watching the Next Food Network Star! We haven't been able to watch Big Daddy's House yet though, but good job on your fried chicken! I'm totally gonna look on foodnetwork.com for his fried chicken recipe now. ha :)

I recommend you do. It's a goodie. I know it was pretty tasty because when Jason said he liked it, he didn't add a "but" afterwards. That's a good sign.

Boy now I feel like an a--. Apparently I am coming across as a harsh critic.

Amy - You are sooo cute. Jeremy thinks you are a great cook everyday! Thanks again for taking such great care of him this summer. PS I am now a fan of Tyler Florence who hooked us up with a GREAT recipe for carne asada with fresh pico de gallo. Jeremy said it was his new fav and I felt like super star chef of the day. Now I'll have to check out big daddy!!:) Miss you guys!

That chicken does look tasty-I've never, ever made fried chicken, but I've been inspired (but only because you said it's easy...)
And you look amazing in the photo from your anniversary-it's a great shot.
And I love Michael Phelps, too--the olympics this year were amazing! go usa!
