Better-Than-Takeout Orange Chicken

There are two secrets to making chicken stir-fry crispy. The first is how you dredge and fry it. You want a light, crispy batter that contains cornstarch or potato starch and all-purpose flour. The second secret is the sauce has to have a good amount of sugar to make a syrup. A syrup won't make crispy batter soggy.

You will find yourself making this recipe over and over again during your lifetime. This measurement technique works for all long-grain white rice varieties, including basmati, American white rice and white rice hybrids like Texmati.

Peanut butter cups are iconic. They're a childhood favorite. Okay, who are we kidding, they're an adult favorite, too! So, I'm taking this classic flavor combination and creating a tart. Sweet peanut butter filling inside a chocolate cookie crust with a chocolate ganache topping makes a grown-up peanut butter cup.
