Germany Ohio

Germany: Give them a pig and some cabbage, and they'll make you a meal.

Deep Fried Candy Bars: Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, 3-Musketeers

Nothing says "I want to die" like a deep fried Mars bar.

There is some irony in the fact my first book was a diet book, and I'm about to write about deep-friend candy bars. I suppose the best diet is a little bit of everything, and never too much of anything, but who the heck am I to say.  Read more »
