A Great Beef Ribs Recipe From Gourmet Holiday Edition

I know, it’s early for some of you to be thinking of the Holidays; bear with me…

Turkey is the standard for Thanksgiving, with ham a solid second place. But what if you want something different? Something with a little zing to it? Well, have we got a deal for you!

Actually, it’s Gourmet Magazine who has […]

VooDoo BBQ & Grill: Their HooDoo’s Pretty Good, Actually

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Sadly, this restaurant has closed.

Sometime we here in Texas kid about that foreign country to our East, Louisiana. However, when it comes to food, there’s very little joking goes on, either place! Both regions can lay claim to distinctive styles and flavors, even within the realm of […]

Epicure: More Than a Fancy Foodie Word, It’s Also a Great Gift Shop and Deli

Visiting Mom this week presented some nice opportunities to relax. Yesterday my best wife and I headed into downtown Boerne for a little look-see and maybe some shopping. The town’s clearly not the sleepy little village I grew up in; no, there’s all sorts of shops, attractions and activities nowadays.

Harissa: The Best Pepper Sauce You’ve Probably Never Heard About

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

A disturbing new trend in Europe these days; specifically, in French school cafeterias. Ketchup has been banned from the kitchen and tables there! And this is a direct slap at the condiment that Americans use the most. Never mind that ketchup was invented in the […]

Are You Joining the Artisanal Ketchup Revolution?

Ketchup. That red glop that kids use to hide the taste of everything from broccoli to bananas. It’s somehow seen as quintessentially American, although we didn’t invent it. It’s not even the top-selling topping in the States; mayonnaise and salsa both sell better. And until recently, it’s not been seen as a target for […]

Tomatoes, Tomatoes Everywhere; What to Do? East India Sauce!

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

Our small patch of a dozen tomato plants has gone into overdrive this week. Especially the alien cherry tomatoes that have grown to over eight feet tall. There’s only two of them in the garden, but they’re producing a quart of tasty red spheres each day. […]
