Man Does Not Live by Rice Alone: Cajun Focaccia

Sometimes you just want something a little different with your Cajun or Creole food. I mean, You Can’t Have Rice With Every Meal, can you? (Well, if you’re in Louisiana, maybe you can.) With that in mind, I offer this recipe from a great chef (and honorary Cajun), Emeril Lagasse:

Caramelized Onion Focaccia

I first saw […]

No Food Today, It's Down to the Courthouse

I won’t have time to work up a nice Spicy italian dish for today. You see, it’s my day in court…

Oh, not as a plaintiff. And luckily, not as a defendant. (I think all those warrants have expired.) No, Some lucky folks are going to have me as their fellow juror! I don’t think […]

Italian for Labor Day? Well, Why Not?

Okay, so it sounds odd. Labor Day, the unofficial end to summer here in the States, is often a mad paroxysm of travel, camping, beach and water fun, football games (college and high school this year; the NFL took a break) and cookouts. Here in Texas, it’s often just an excuse for another long […]

Sorry to Burst Your Bubble, But RO*TEL Plus Velveeta Does Not Equal Queso

A recent post on Slashfood asks, “What the hell is that?” The author, Jose Ralat Maldonado, explored the “queso” that is Velveeta and RO*TEL prepared tomatoes and chiles (and that’s the last time I’ll use that silly trademark).

Now most of you are all caught up on your sleep for the month! (It’s the third game that’s always the real snoozer.) The rest of you went […]

Best Wishes for Turkey Day From the Chile Underground

Today is one of our Great Holidays in America. Friends and family gather and share traditions and memories. For some, it’s all about socializing and catching up: Where you’ve been, how’s the job, and more. For others it’s about the football and the food, or the board and card games after the feast.

Take a moment […]

Before Thanksgiving: Appetizers for Football and Bribes

Thanksgiving‘s just around the corner, so to speak. Today’s the last day of the college football season for some teams, and that’s a more pressing issue for most of us. Almost no football left!

What to serve to the screaming hordes who are coming over to watch the game on your 112-inch flat-screen plasma TV? (You […]

Tailgatin’ on a Tuesday

Finally the weather’s cold enough to think about football. If you’re a true football fan, you’re required you know how to prepare tailgating fare for you and all the lazy camp followers friends and family who come with you to the game to drink your beer and eat you out of house and home cheer […]
