Super Bowl Party Giveaway: 17th Street BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork

Built a bbq cooker out of a barrel and hung corn, ribs, and chicken over top. I even managed to cook a pizza on slats in the bottom to satisfy everyone from vegetarians to picky eaters while still getting the bbq smokey charred taste. We won't let anything come b/w us and our love for that bbq taste

Taste Test: Powdered Gravy Mixes

Try to get a hold of southeastern mills old fashioned peppered gravy mix. When it comes to powerdered gravy mixes, this bad boy is a-mazing!!

Staff Picks: What's the Scariest Food You've Ever Eaten?

OK...Max's story about the front half of the lobster clawing its way onto the table?! I can't-there are just no words. I literally cringed and almost threw up all at the same time. That is truly terrifying.

Poll: What Soda Do You Like to Drink With Your Pizza?

I only drink the classiest wines with my pizza...aka Cheerwine!! This creates a problem up here in New England :-( Any southerner willing to send me a shipment-me and the pizza industry would appreciate it.

Open Thread: What Words Should Never Be Used to Describe Food?

oh the WORST is anything that is "chunky" or "in chunks". I immediately can only picture chunky vomit or just nastiness. It could be my favorite food then that word's in the description and I'm done. Nothing good has ever nor will ever come described as chunks.

Bake the Book: Glazed, Filled, Sugared, & Dipped

Glazed with sprinkles. MUST have the sprinkles or it's just not the same...

Open Thread: What's Your Preferred Pop-Tart?

If you are going to have a poptart why do you care about calories?! For some reason the brown sugar cinnamon was a staple in my house. But I always wanted the more indulgent smores or frosted blueberry. Though now that it's been reviewed, I am on a grown-up hunt for chocolate pb. Are they are stop and shop?

Let's Get Drunk Watching: The Bachelor

can you make one for the bachlorette so I can feel a little more valid for watching it tomorrow night?!

Father's Day Giveaway: Win a KettlePizza Pro 22 Kit

Mistakes? What mistakes? Ask my dad and he will tell you it was always planned that way. From the home made pizza that fell through the oven racks (way to cut back on carbs w/o trying), to burning digiorno (charred is the new foodie trend) this man is a pizza chef. He can do almost anything else but it seems that pizza is an unfortunate downfall. Hopefully a pizzapro would give him some legitimate backing...

Let's Get Drunk Watching: Arrested Development

Billy Doogan told me you wrote for this site! I didnt realize this was your article. This and the game of thrones drinking game makes me smile. Well done sir...well done

Giveaway: Win A Limited Edition "Zelda Collection" from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

What cocktail shouldn't be made a dessert? But if I must choose lets go with a mint julep. It sounds like a dessert anyway and lends itself well to the category (simple syrup, mint, bourbon). I believe it would be a perfect southern style hit!

What Gross Food Stuff Did You Do as a Kid?

I was such an annoying picky kid-would not do mac'n'cheese. Wouldn't do pizza. No-I could only do the delicacies in culinary cuisine: pretzels dipped in ranch dressing and even more decadent, opening a can of baked beans into a bowl, adding mustard and just eating the entire thing with a side of toast.
As I write this it still seems legitimate...?

Dear Oreo, What In The What Are You Thinking?

wait wait wait...am I the only one that occasionally seriously CRAVES sherbet? As a law student, I could honestly appreciate this lesser substitute, yet easier to snack on.
p.s.-anyone ever tried the strawberry milkshake oreo? Also equally enjoyed this less then par amazing-ness

Cereal Eats: What Are Your Favorite Cereals?

I am sorry to sound like an 80 year old but...I am with bagelgirl: what about cracklin' oat bran? So underrated yet sooo amazing. Guarantee majority haven't tried it-do yourselves a favor and go get a box today. you will never regret it!

Cook the Book: 'Stewed'

My favorite winter time soup is chicken and dumplings. My grandmother made the BEST recipe and passed it down to my dad who just passed it down to my brother after getting married. I can reveal what all is involved but the dumplings are similar to alton brown's so its obviously good....

Two and a half quarts of orange marmalde. Suggestions?

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Sriracha Lover's Ultimate Gift Pack

This is a very presumptuous giveaway by assuming Siracha doesn't pair well with everything. (Which it very well could given the circumstances) However I suppose if I have to narrow it down, my favorite dish with Siracha has to be simple, the hard boiled egg. Easiest breakfast to make, salt, pepper, and then let the Siracha sing as the complement condiment. Pizza yes, Asian good yes, but hard boiled egg-simple, practicable, and really get to taste it.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Sriracha Lover's Ultimate Gift Pack

Is there a non-Siracha friendly food? Though If I have to chose the best for me is paired with tofu, noodles, peanuts, soy, and steamed veggies. Sooo good! Siracha makes it!

Holiday Giveaway: The Amazing Thermapen Thermometer

I stuck a thermometer, and I am not kidding, into a faux turkey. I was putting on Thanksgiving for several Indian people and the faux turkey called for a certain temperature; not wanting to mess up I had to make sure it was the the right temperature. However I felt a little embarrassed, and I think others would laugh that I stuck a thermometer into soy. eh-what can ya do?

Cook the Book: 'True Blood'

Pumpkin shaped Reese's. Yes, they do taste different then normal reese's cups! The ratio of peanut butter to chocolate is just different, and in an absolutely phenomenal way. I love these babies!! (The Easter egg shape is a close 2nd)

College Tours: Where to Eat Near UNC-Chapel Hill

The Station is always good. Top of the hill and spankys are also great choices-especially on a game day! god i miss chapel hill! really the best way to go is tailgating :-)
