There are days when I am craving for something, and I can’t get it off my mind until I finally make one.

Such was the case when I had a serious craving for breadsticks. And not just the typical boring and dry breadsticks, I wanted mine herby, garlicky, soft and moist breadsticks. Problem was, I didn’t have a recipe.

A quick YouTube and Google search led me to a lot of recipes, ranging form simple ones to complex recipes, but one recipe stood out – Laura Vitale’s. Hers was simple, and all her ingredients were available in my pantry. Plus, it included Italian seasoning which I looove (and I have an excessive amount at home) 🙂

I’ve always been a fan of Laura, so I was excited to try her recipe. So with a few of my tweaks by instinct and uhmm accident, here’s the finished product:

Most people ask me, ‘how do you  come up with these recipes?’ Honestly, watching food-related TV shows has already filled my brain with years worth of ideas (it never ends). And sometimes, I just wake up wanting to cook a certain dish; this recipe for instance.

One Sunday morning, I woke up wanting to make roast chicken. I’ve been wanting to make one but the size of my old oven wouldn’t allow me to do it. So when I upgraded my oven (woohoo!), this dish was among the first on the list.

A quick trip to the supermarket’s produce section inspired many delectable flavor combinations, but nothing beats a classic, time-tested recipe. So, I grabbed some lemons, fresh rosemary and a stick of butter, and made my version of, well, lemon-garlic-rosemary roast chicken.

It’s really amazing how simple ingredients create the most wonderful flavors when combined right. Here’s the recipe:

This recipe is an update of a previous recipe I posted 3 years ago.

Why fix it when it’s not broken? I often ask myself this question whenever I try to “fix” a time-tested recipe. Then again, it can’t be considered “fixing,” rather, it’s an attempt to improve the recipe.

This recipe for instance

My Korean Fried Chicken is been one of my famous recipes in this blog, garnering lots of views everyday. Perhaps, it’s the madness that is KFC all over the world that sends thousands of people online to search for a recipe. Although I’m pretty much satisfied with my recipe, I am not too thrilled with its crunch factor. After all, a korean fried chicken is famous for its crunch, among others.

So, when I tried to upgrade my recipe, I thought of ways to fix this ‘broke’ thing. The result, a crunch that is better. A crunch that lasts longer. A crunch like no other.

Hear that crunch? Here’s the recipe:

FINALLY!!! My first post for 2013! And there’s no better recipe to share than my most favorite food in the world -FRIED CHICKEN!

Mind you, this is no ordinary fried chicken, coz after being fried to crispy goodness, it is then tossed in a buttery-garlicky-cheesy sauce!

For followers of my blog, I have already shared one of my favorite fried chicken recipes (here). This one’s equally good, even better, I think. Plus, it’s easier to make. The sauce is sinful, yes, but you’ll get over your guilt once you take a bite of the succulent piece of fried chicken. Not to mention dipping it in a even more sinful dipping sauce.

Ok, I think that intro’s enough, I’m drooling already.

Here’s the recipe.
