Heavenly Beef and Guinness Pie

Cool weather is here, and though it wasn’t a typical Texas scorcher this past summer, I’m ready for the comfort foods of autumn. (How hot was it last summer? I hear it made the Jehovah’s Witnesses take up telemarketing.) One of those foods is pot pie, and the pot pie’s close cousin, the pasty.

Late-Lunch Steaks at the Blue Oak Grill

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

This restaurant has closed.

Not too long back I found myself in a part of town I hadn’t visited in a couple of years. I had a half hour to kill, so I drove around the area to see what all had changed, and maybe what had […]

Fish 4 Friday: Make Better Fish & Chips by Using Better Batter

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Got a hankering for fish & chips? It’s a great pub grub kind of meal, and even if you’re on one of those New Year’s diet thingies, you still need one “cheat day” to keep healthy (or at least sane). What better way than with […]
