Dinner For Two: Chicken Fried Steak | Dessert For Two Welcome to the new Dinner For Two series here on Dessert For Two! I receive frequent emails asking for dinner recipes scaled down to serve two people, and after mulling it over, I have decided to do it. My current plans are to share dinner recipes once a month. So, those of you that just come here for the butter-flour-sugar party won’t be too disturbed. The dinner recipes will be my favorite Southern dinners.
It’s been a busy week, one where quick and easy is the only hope of cooking dinner instead of doing takeout.

Did you know that true sliders are steamed and not grilled? That's what makes them so juicy and delicious. They are placed on a bed of sauteing onions, and the steam from the onions cooks the burgers. This made me think - why not steam the burger right inside the bun? Why not incorporate Asian style steamed buns into this process, cooking the bread AND the meat at the same time? Well ask no further! Cheeseburger Slider Steamed Buns

Dear Pork, We meet again. This time things got intense. As per usual I was dabbling in vegetarianism, reading books like “Animal Factory” and “Eating Animals” and having thoughts like “I just can’t keep eating meat”. Then I bought a groupon for Barnes and Noble.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken
As previously stated, I’m trying to eat better and shed some winter poundage as we head into the warmer months. So far, success. It’s been four days, but whatever.

There's a lot of misconception when it comes to "barbecue." The problem is the word itself. It's used as a synonym for grilling, refers to the grill itself, or to the meat being grilled; it also has a sauce named after it; and sometimes it's just the word for the party itself held outdoors in somebody's backyard. What, actually, is "barbecue"?
