  1. Your fried chicken wings make the ones you get at restaurants look pathetic. That’s the way fried chicken is supposed to look, all moist and golden and delicious. And it reminds me of my grandmother, who made the best fried chicken in the world! Your food always looks extra good, Theresa. It’s a gift.
