Fried Chicken Wings

I bought all my gifts like 2 1/2 weeks ago and decided to buy myself a mini deep fryer for $34, I've been wanting one for a few years now and I honestly didn't think I once hinted to anyone that I did. Well turns out apparently I complain about not having a deep fryer every time I watch something get fried on Food Network LOL. I never actually thought I voiced my wishes so often, well someone got me a BIG deep fryer for Christmas. I don't know what it looks like or who its coming from but when I told my dad he hollered "YOU CAN'T BUY THAT FOR CHRISTMAS" at me and had a bug eyed look and was slack jawed. LOL!!!! Then later when I told my mom over the phone she says  "I'm not naming names, its someone your related to" Uuuhhhh Either grandparents or dad I'm betting on... I dunno I'm leaning towards DAD. Plus I have a huge suspicion that this would be a gift he could use too, by coming over and having Fish and chips for dinner with us. Just sayin'!

Sugar cookies with royal icing

Oooh how I love a good sugar cookie! But I am picky about them I hate it when there is too much frosting and the cookie is too sweet. Yes I know, SUGAR COOKIE. It's supposed to be sweet but I like mine a bit mellow and more tasty. As in vanilla bean tasty.

Apple Juice Marinated Pork Shoulder

So I was just goofing off with this recipe and it came out great, I was genuinely  surprised! When I cook or bake I always take pictures but sometimes I don't write them down because I don't see them being good enough to put up here. Like the side of cous cous and vegetables on the dish. I need to seriously re do that and change the amounts I used. I thought the pork was gonna suck and the cous cous rock so I wrote down the cous cous recipe : / Figures... I still know what I put in and certain ammounts of items.
