My husband does not agree but I think baking is the way to go in most cases simply because it’s healthier. He prefers “authentic” cooking styles. I prefer a healthier meal but one that still tastes damn good. I’m slowly working him in. One day I hope he’ll have a greater appreciation for baked goods. Until then, I’ll feed my baked goods to my kids.

My daughter, a very picky eater, loves those Stair Fair corn dogs. I hated the thought of feeding them to her but when she refuses to eat anything else, I fold. So. I thought, “Hey, at least let me give her a bit of a healthier corn dog.” So, here’s my baked version of a corn dog. My kids both approved. I thought they were great and my hubby… well he did eat them. =)
