NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: DIY Fair Food - Waffle Iron Corn Dogs

This recipe is everything you love about fair food - including the mess!

You know it's a "successful" Nailed It Or Failed It when you almost have to call the fire department.

On Friday, July 16, 2021 during Good Morning Quad Cities, we tried to make our own fair food - corn dogs! This recipe has very easy ingredients (corn muffin mix and hot dogs) and simple step-by-step instructions. However, in true "NIOFI" fashion, we made a big mess. Click the video above to see how to make your own corn dogs... and then click the video below to see why I might need to take a trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond soon for a new waffle iron. 

For Friday's Ketz's Concoction, Jon really went outside the box. He decided to make a 'coffee martini.'

The 'BBC's Good Food' made a 'Reverse Espresso Martini,' but Jon decided to make a simpler version.

Here's what you need: hot coffee, 2 shots of vodka, a shot of Baileys, ice, a glass, and an ice tray.

Here's how you make it: Pour the coffee in an ice cube tray. Stick it in the freezer. Wait a while. Pour the vodka and Baileys into a cocktail shaker that's filled with ice already. Shake it together like a Polaroid picture. Take out the liquid and pour it into a glass. Then take out the ice cubes from the freezer and put four or five of them into a glass and drink!
