Building a Pizzeria: The Oven

Bikes and pizza. Sweet Jesus yes.

Is that a Surly Long Haul Trucker? It looks like it. That green on the headset tube is too unique to not be.

Chain Reaction: Pizza Hut's Big Italy Pizza

The Bigfoot pizza brings back so many memories. Had a neighbor when I was a kid who loved that stuff. We would hang out on Friday nights and his mom would order us one while we played Battle Toads and Toejam & Earl. Good times.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat La Frieda Burgers

Eating a Whataburger with friends after a night of drinking. Good friends, good times, and great burgers. Double double with bacon.

McDee and The Mc rib

I'll admit it, I had a double McRib EVM the other day and it was great.

Texas Monthly top 50 BBQ joints in Texas

@nichole Just an FYI, it's only open on Saturday and is usually sold out a little after 12. The article suggest pre-ordering during the week.

Dinner Tonight: Migas, Tex-Mex Style

I freaking love migas. Of course, the migas I remember eating as a kid were not like this recipe but of course everybody likes something a little different. Here's the recipe I remember.

1 10/15 onion or sweet onion
15 corn tortillas
vegetable oil
tomato sauce
10-12 eggs

1. Heat oil in pan and add diced onion. Cook until translucent.
2. Add quartered tortillas and fry a bit.
3. Add can or two of tomato sauce and let cook.
4. Fry eggs over easy in a differnt pan.
5. Serve migas and top with 2 fried eggs

Ahh, that takes me back a few years. That was a typical after church breakfast.

A change of heart concerning Sandra Lee.

If she had such a rough upbringing and is now trying to help busy parents eat well, why does she have to feature some sort of alcoholic drink in every episode. I mean, it's just ridiculous to think that at every meal you should decorate your table, put place cards, and serve some sort of strong booze. In my opinon, she has abandoned her past and is trying to be something she can't.

In Videos: Saturday Night Live Parody of Top Chef

I have to agree with carriebwc about the reading off the teleprompter. And what is it with young chefs and faux hawks? I still don't think the skit was as funny as Top Chef however. I just love to see egos get deflated on the real show. To bad Richard hasn't had his bubble popped yet.

Need a Le Creuset stainless steel knob but everyone is sold out.

Unfortunately jpolk I live in the most southern tip of Texas. Thanks to everyone for you suggestions. Thankfully nooner helped me out. I'm glad everyone on this site is really nice.

Best Hangover Food?

I would have to say a couple of breakfast tacos. I would go with some chorizo, potato, and egg ones myself. As well as an ice cold soda.

Where is the best place to get BBQ in Dallas/Forth Worth?

I will be staying in the southwest portion of Fort Worth but I am willing to travel any where in the metroplex area to eat good bbq.

What childhood food do you wish they still made?

There were some really good cookies from Mexico I used to love. They were made by Gamesa and they were round with a whole in the middle and they had a hard frosting that was either yellow or pink. I can no longer find them and a lot of people here where I live remember them and also miss them.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Southside Market Sausage

I'm pretty impartial to my own BBQ but if I'm going to eat out, I have to say that Willy B's BBQ in Edinburg is pretty damn good. Pecan smoked brisket rocks my world.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

I may offend some people with this but I've gotta say a ribeye.

Where to eat in San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas?

County Line BBQ in Austin. It's on Highway 2222. The road is treacherous but the reward is great.

The Breakfast Tacos of San Antonio

I'm from deep south texas. I can see Mexico from window and I can vouch for how great breakfast tacos are. We have a long standing tradition of breakfast tacos here in the great Rio Grande Valley. Depends on the person but most people will tell you that El Pato and tacos from the Laredo Taco Company are the best. I can't think of a better way to start the morning than with a chorizo, egg and potato taco with a glass of chocolate milk.
