Whenever we are traveling and want to grab a quick “fast-food” bite that isn’t the usual burger, Long Johns is always a popular choice. Hubby loves their golden fried fish, plump fried shrimp and a basket of French Fries. With enough Malt Vinegar, even Kiddo doesn’t mind a piece of deep-fried fish.

We are less than one week away from Holy Week. Palm Sunday is this coming Sunday, the start of that week long anticipation. Today is the 30th day of the Lenten Season, and I thought we could have a little fast-food fun. Ginger Ale added to the batter gives the fry that extra zing. Anyone who has ever eaten at a Long John Silver knows what I’m talking about here. Serve this fry with your favorite seafood condiments such as Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce or Malted Vinegar. Hope you enjoy!

I read this blog post from a fellow blogger the other day and the more I thought about it, the more I knew I just had to share her post. The recipe itself looks amazing, and who doesn’t love a delicious new cookie recipe! But the plate is an awesome idea. Check out her post to see the full recipe and the plate tag.

It’s Spring and Easter is fast approaching!  These two things ALWAYS bring to mind one of my favorite desserts of all time, the southern staple, Hummingbird Cake!  Now, one of the most commonly asked questions about this delight is “what the heck is that??”.  Well, for a real quick history lesson, its origin is from Jamaica, but the recipe was eventually printed here in America in 1978 in an issue of Southern Living Magazine.  The Hummingbird Cake is actually the number 1 most requested cake recipe in the magazine’s history.  It’s really that good!

The flavors of this layered cake contains pecans, mashed bananas, crushed pineapple and cream cheese frosting.  It stays moist and flavorful for days.

Now, that all being said, this year I decided to make the recipe a bit more fun and turn it into a handheld cookie!  Trust me, this idea was also out of convenience…
