Crispy Fried Chicken
I'm making this my go to recipe for frying. I followed the advice of other reviewers and drained on a wire rack instead of a paper towel, worked out great. Waiting for the flour plus buttermilk mix to turn into a "paste" only took about 10 min. I also didn't have buttermilk so I just added a Tbs. Of lemon juice to a cup and waited until it thickened up, about 5 min. I just wish I used regular salt or season salt to the mix. I used kosher and it wasn't as good as it could have been, but that's my fault and an easy fix for next time. Juicy and crispy! I used this chicken for Japanese curry and it was awesome. I also had a few peices with bbq sauce and it was also great. Very versatile.

Baked Sweet Potatoes
Inirltially I was scared to try this but I'm so happy I did. I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and microwaved for 3 min prior to cutting, used rosemary and tossed before putting in baking dish. I baked for 45-50 min at 350, uncovered and mixed only once half way through.My husband loved it. Will make again and again.

Hot Tamale Pie
I've been wanting to make it for a long time and finally got around to it. I did make a few changes because of the poblano peppers. I cook with them alot so I cooked those first along with the onions to ensure they were tender. I don't like chewing on onions or peppers if they are in my food. Then I added the meat and continued to cook everything, towards the end I added a small bunch of fresh chopped cilantro . I also used my own salsa recipe: 5slrings cilantro, 2 large tomatoes, 3 cloves garlic, 1tbs chx stock half onion 1 jalapeƱo boiled and blended. It made the meat taste more authentic and less ' Taco Bell '- but I'm Mexican- American so I know how to play with those flavores. I also added 2 tsp of canned chipotle juice instead of the dried stuff. My husband loved it and wants me to add it to the rotation. Oh! If you like a crunchy topped casserole, keep the cheese in the top mix, I like mine softer/ it's so I kept the cheese out and just sprinkled it under and over the meat then spread the jiffy over that.
