Best Fried Chicken

I wonder if you can get that buffet to go. I was down there last year and I was driving through so I had to do the take out but the buffet made me salivate when I saw it.

Silly question: Do you cook differently when 'dating' vs. when 'committed'?

I don't cook every day. I love trying new places to eat. If, I start cooking all the time for my fiancé he will expect it and we will never leave the house to eat out. I found out that he is a great cook from his family, friends and also from him. He has never made one meal for me. When meal time comes and he looks crazy at me like I am suppose to cook I act clueless and then mention a place I would like to try or suggest he cook. We then go out. Don't feel too sorry for him because he has a sweet tooth and I bake and make candy for him.

Barbecue Sauce Recipes: Aunty likes Dry Rubs

I just love everything I see. I am going to play with some of these and we will be enjoying our big pig sandwiches tonight. I am tempted to get some chicken and fire up the grill and try some of these tasty sounding concoctions. Thank y'all for helping me with my nephews education. ; )

Barbecue Sauce Recipes: Aunty likes Dry Rubs

I am teaching my nephew how to cook. He is eighteen and I don't want him to starve to death. His mom doesn't like to and can't cook. Ask me about the casserole that required cream a mushroom soup she didn't have so used alphabet soup. Interesting and funny meal. I digress. Well we made pulled pork and I have showed him how to make several meals using the pork. Stir fried cabbage, shrimp and with the pork and also tacos. Tomorrow we are having big pig sandwiches - slice of ham, pulled pork, pepper jack cheese, coleslaw and honey mustard. He wants to try a barbecue sauce that doesn't have a tomato base (he hates tomatoes and ketchup). Since I hate barbecue sauce (and didn't eat ketchup until my 30's and still not a big fan) I make my own sauce with honey, Dijon mustard, apple cider and a little apple cider vinegar. He is allergic to apples. I thought of using hoisin sauce or a mixture of honey and soy sauce. Does any one have a alternative sauce recipe without the tomatoes that we could try? ( I also posted this on the DMV mssg board but it was suggested I post on home cooking.)

I am sorry about the bad meal. I hate overly salty food.

Best Fried Chicken

Well I am going to have to try Bon Chon. I just thought of a great Fried Chicken Place not in the DMV area. In Tappahannock, Virginia I eat at Lowry's Seafood Restaurant. Not only is the seafood good but the fried chicken is great they give you packets of honey to put on the chicken. We used to stop there when I was a child on road trips to my Grandma's house in Newport News, VA. They also have a buffet OMGoodness, but I don't think it is daily.

Best Fried Chicken

I never new this about the grocery store chicken. You are right about that gas station chicken. The lady was making it in small batches and it was clean and beautiful in her kitchen area. Watching her make the biscuits reminded me of how my Mom made biscuits from scratch when I was a kid. I need to come by your house to get that Chicken, Shrimp and those fritters by the way. (lol) ; ) It sounds good tell me how it turns out it sounds delish.

Best Fried Chicken

Has any one ever been to Kantouri Fried Chicken in Columbia Heights? My Dad and I were to go a year and a half ago but he passed away and I never went. I have to say some of the Best Fried Chicken I have had was at the Valero Gas Station off of Route 3 in Fredericksburg, VA. I laughed at first when my boyfriend said he was getting chicken there but I stopped laughing and sent him back to get more chicken and biscuits.

Best Fried Chicken

I want to reply to the person who said their Popeye's taste like fish. I have noticed that Popeye's doesn't separate their Frying Oil. They fry fish, fries, shrimp and chicken in the same fryers and this will impact the taste of the chicken. If you have ever saved frying oil from fish or chicken at home and you get them mixed up when frying it can be a disaster.

Where can I find real county ham slices

Shopper's Food Warehouse over near my house in Herndon, VA. I am sure other Shopper's grocery stores have them. I use them to cook my mixed greens.

Best Fried Chicken

Well I just finished reading the Washingtonian Magazine Best of Issue. I am taking some exception to the Best Fried Chicken in DC and surrounding areas. Popeye's was number one. KFC, GBD, Central Michel Richard were also mentioned. I just can't believe these are the only good best places for fried chicken. If so I am going to need to go downtown and make myself some money. Do you have the names of any other places where they make great fried chicken in DC and surrounding area?

What is a sister to do? Rehearsal Dinner Baltimore MD near the Rennaisance Hotel Inner Harbor

My brother is getting married this September in Baltimore, MD. He is hosting the Rehearsal Dinner. That means I am planning it since he is in Houston, TX and I am closer in No. VA. I have eaten in Baltimore 4-5 times but I am not familair enough to find a place for the dinner. I need a venue where I can do a seated dinner for 20 people with a seperate dining area or room for about $45.00 or less per head. ( This is all I can afford). Chowhound friends any suggestions?
