Once upon a time while babysitting my youngest sister, she’s 11 years younger than I am essentially making me the responsible one in this scenario, I was cooking and talking on the phone and tipped a scolding hot dish of gravy over on top of her little baby head. That was 16 years ago and although she is fine, more than fine, it scared the crap out of me, and although it wasn’t grease it was gravy it still makes me shy away from all things scorching. I won’t even take anything out of the oven unless there isn’t anyone around to do it for me. Sad I know, but just one of those things that makes me into me.
Needless to say I needed a non-frying recipe so I found this. And it is great! I told Babycakes that I'll be making this more often and he is told me that he is down with that.
