The Fried Side

I decided I needed to write about all my favorite fried side dishes.  To say that the research for this story has been a joy is complete understatement! I love fried food.  Of course, because fried food is not the healthiest, I have to say no to my cravings of crunchy, crispy, greasy goodness all too…
