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!

Napalm Chicken Redux: Making the Best Fried Chicken Even Better

Once upon a time I posted a recipe for Napalm Chicken. That dish is still one of the best ways to get your lips to steaming, especially if you’re not currently in a torrid love relationship. Back then, I rated the heat of Napalm Chicken at five chiles; nowadays I think it’s more like 3-4, […]

Ah, Those Fun-Loving Carolinians and Their Quirky Quisine

Most of the country only know a few things about the South. For instance, Redneck Jokes. (Some of these are not jokes down here; they’re sound advice for living.) Other things that may be general knowledge include our love of barbeque, car racing, hunting and fishing, gospel music and sweet tea. Some of us even […]

Two-Steppin’ Country Music and Texas-Style Dinner in Belmont

Sometimes you come across a novel place way out in the country. (Or maybe, if you’re lucky, your friends find the place for you.) We’re not talking about fancy places in this category. But maybe the kind of food you grew up on. Comforting stuff, like chicken-fried steak, or frog legs; you know what […]

Florida, Day 1: Flying, Three Birds Tavern, and Apple Pork Chops

Saturday morning, way too early, we oozed out of bed, grabbed our bags and headed to Bergstrom Airport for our trip to Tampa. Checking in went smoothly enough, given that we were sleepwalking through the whole process. As dawn did its dawning thing I managed to find a nice cuppa Joe at one of […]
