AC's Twist

Did you ever go to a restaurant and say, “I’m going to try to make this when I get home, this was delicious”? With Aunt Carmen’s Twist, I will visit restaurants throughout the United States and give you my take on a menu item or two, maybe even three, that I have tasted for my audience. Maybe, you will find your way to the restaurant and enjoy the same food that I did. Then, occasionally, I will try to share my version of the same food product to see if it comes out close to what I have eaten at the restaurant, that is where AC Twist was materialized. Sounds like fun! You never know how it is going to come out and what ingredients need converted. I want YOU to share your take on certain restaurants and your favorite menu item, (plug the information in the comments section) and you never know where I will be next! Stay tuned in!
