Cake or Pie and Why?

Facebook has a fun string going where a friend asked everyone to comment with their choice of cake or pie and to explain why they choose that answer. I have no problem answering immediately, pie. I love all kinds of pies and most of the time don’t like cake at all. I hardly ever eat cake other than on birthdays, and I really do not understand the cupcake craze. That seems like a total waste of money and calories.

Pies have been a standard dessert in my family for generations. We all take great pride in making a great crust and fillings from scratch. I absolutely love apple pie, especially after a big holiday traditional dinner. But to be truthful, my all time favorite kind of pie is key lime pie, followed in a close second place by lemon meringue pie.

Best Damn Fried Chicken

If you are looking for the best fried chicken, where do you go or think of first? I used to think of Kentucky Fried Chicken right away. That is what I grew up on. My mother never fried chicken at home. She didn’t like to use all that hot oil and make the kitchen all hot and smelly. So she would buy a big bucket of KFC for dinner once in a while as a treat.

Nowadays I think of Popeyes Fried Chicken when I want the best fried chicken. Their chicken comes mild or spicy and their sides are fantastic. I always have a hard time figuring out which sides to get – I love them all!
