Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

Add 2 cups of flour and mix with hands keep adding flour until consistency looks like this Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature. I put mine inside the Instant pot. After a few hours it will look like this. This is a fun dough to play with it doesn’t fall apart easily. Add a little olive oil before shaping the dough.  I tried cooking some but it was better after being in the fridge overnight.  After letting it sit in the fridge overnight I stuf

Day Trip to Harrison Hot Springs

I have rarely left the city where I lived for the last 7 months as we are in a pandemic. This is a day trip to Harrison Hot Springs which is a little less than a 2 hour drive from where I live.  Video on YouTube  Thankfully I live in an area that has low virus cases and local travel is allowed. My mom and I both have not left our houses for more than a few hours a day and were concerned that we would run into issues of needing a bathroom. When I was younger we would often spend a few days in Harrison so we know the area. The resort is very nice but we currently wanted a place to go for a few hours. It’s almost the end of summer and although I live in a beautiful city it’s nice to go to somewhere less city like.  We decided to leave at 1100 so that we would have a few hours of daylight. Our intention was to go for the drive, have lunch, walk near the lake and come home. We were not sure if the hotel and restaurants would be open due to Covid restrictions and knew the public pool was clo
