Red Velvet Onion Rings. Yes, Jesus Loves Me.

As some of you are aware, I am obsessed with all things rice and red velvet. Last year when I found out about the existence of RED VELVET FRIED CHICKEN (yes, I hollered when I typed that), I did all types of drops and twirls. And started a mission to get some in my lifespace. This mission has been yet unaccomplished, which makes me sad. But I shan’t give up. NO I WILL NOT!

But I DID find some red velvet pancakes last month. They had vanilla bean sauce and tasted like everything that was right in the world.

Anywho, I was minding my own business on the Twittahs when @MsPeepToePumps sent me a link to…



Red velvet onion rings

If this ain’t proof that God’s love is ALL around us, then I don’t know what is. I mean DANG!!! These onion rings look like they taste like awesome, delicious and diabetes. And I wan’t them in my life!!!

I mean, just LOOK at them! I’d give half the toenail on my babytoe to get me a piece of these.

The guy who created them was even kind enough to give the recipe. One of my friends who cook, or one of my readers who care about me a lot. Can y’all make me some? I’m serious. I feel like if I ate some I’d be doing this dance.

And I feel like some of y’all are giving me the same judging eyes that Lisa is giving Grampa Simpson. It’s aight though.

Red Velvet Rules Everything Around. (RVREAM – pronounced REVREAM. You’re welcome).

So am I alone in my greed craving of red velvet onion rings? Will I get diabeetus overnight if I ate these? Do I even give a damb?

Tell a G.


I might need a red velvet intervention.

    I don’t really like onion rings but I definitely feel you on the red velvet appreciation.I walked a few blocks to get some red velvet waffles and chicken. It was totally worth it!

    As much as I LOVE me some red velvet anything (Ima get a RVREAM tattoo) I might have to pass on the onion rings unless I can find somebody who’ll let me eat the batter and they keep the onion part. That’s true love right there! lol

  18. May 10, 2011 at 9:21 am
