Florida, Day 3: Special Homemade Brunch, Late Lunch at Harvey’s and Supper at Emeril’s

Yes, it was a big day…

We slept in a bit, packed and skipped out on our bill at the Hilton checked out. That part was hard. Getting up in the first place, I mean. For some reason, Florida makes Texans tired. Must be a force field or something.

Anyway, we moseyed to the Sheppards where […]

A Sedate Spring Lunch at Zed’s

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Usually I eat lunch at home these days. Oh, I have plenty of time mid-day, and there are lots of options for lunch in the area. However, I don’t like eating alone, and wifeyperson has a Real Job that often keeps her chained in her cell […]

Pork Chops and Apples Go Together Like, Like ...

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

Well, like Gable and Lombard; like Newman and Woodward; like Burton and Taylor (more than once); like Astaire and Rogers; like Tracy and Hepburn. (Lewis and Martin? Abbott and Costello? Uhh…) You get my drift.

The Devil's Own Chicken, as Hot as Your Conscience Can Stand

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

All I can say about this recipe is, the devil made me do it. And eat it too!

There are many versions of this dish, with names from Chicken Diablo to Pollo del Diavolo and more. Each one lays claim to the “original” title, of course, […]

Recipe du Jour Marathon, First Post: Christine's Hamburger Pie

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon» , RdJ»

When I was in graduate school, I had a few good friends who would occasionally feed me or play Atari games all night and drink beer. Dennis was one of these good friends. And he had a wonderful girlfriend, Christine, who could really […]

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 […]
