Best of the Best -- September 18, 2020
Today I'm showcasing the Best of The Best gif recipes the Internet has to offer.
Oh and a shout-out to reader Kirby (we're working on a new logo for the newsletter), Deb (keep the good vibes coming) and Bryan (I see you!). You all are FANCY AF.
Let's get into the Best of the Best:
Manhattan Cocktail 3 Ways
It's been a long week and we all could get a little fancy this weekend with a Manhattan. While I don't have a huge ice cube I'm going to make this original style. Yum. Turn on some Motown music while you sip.
Japanese Fried Chicken (Karaage)
You know what goes well with a cold whiskey cocktail? Japanese fried chicken, of course. I love how Straight Up Eats fries the shishito peppers afterwards and tops the meal with lemon. Genius. Lemon and fried chicken is so good. Because we do it fancy, I would also throw in some cayenne pepper into the flour mix to spice this Karaage up.
Deep Fried Braised Tofu
I don't care if you're not into tofu, this recipe is going to be a weekend hitter. Make substitutions (if you don't have things like oyster sauce like me) and eat with some rice. What's great about this recipe is that you can sub in whatever veggie you have on-hand and it'll taste amazing. Braising is a great technique I plan on doing more of this fall.
Strawberry Pretzel Cheesecake
I like how this one uses strawberry Jello. Nothing more.
