World’s Best Burger? Check It Out and See If You Agree (With Me)

A quick note concerning an article I read yesterday. It made me hungry to look at it! Then I got to thinking, is this really the World’s Best? Let’s see. Does it have great beef? (No wimpy ground meat allowed. And veggie patties? Fuhgeddaboudit!) How about bold seasonings? A daring choice in cheese? (Skip […]

How Are You Honoring America’s Fallen This Memorial Day?

Many Americans have served our country in the Armed Forces. Others have served America’s interests here and abroad, in organizations ranging from police, fire and rescue to Americorps and the Peace Corps. Although this holiday is focused on the fallen heroes from our armed services, we shouldn’t forget any who have served and paid […]

No Fish 4 Friday Today; Sorry!

What with fighting the shoulder rehab (Mas Oucho!) and website issues, I won’t be able to get any F4F up today. Maybe I’ll find the energy to double up next week. In the meantime, consider trying one of these tasty-looking grilled fish dishes. That way you can get back into summer grilling form while […]

“Healthy” on the Package Doesn’t Guarantee It’s Good for You

Of course the headline’s true. We’re none of us so naïve as to believe differently. However, with almost every box, tin, can,  or bottle of food we buy there are messages that tell us, loudly or in a whisper, that this one’s the Real Deal, oh so healthy and good for you. From “fat […]
