Win a Copy of 'Heritage'

Cook the Book: 'Maximum Flavor'

Pressure Cooker - my mom would never allow us to have one growing up because she had a nasty burn from one when she was growing up in the 70s. The new safety features didn't offer any reassurance for her.

Open Thread: What Food Packaging Drives You Crazy?

I hate the spouts on salt containers. The ones on a kosher salt box suck enough but the iodized salt cylinders? No way! I refuse to use them. It's like nails on a chalkboard for me.

Cornbread Sorghum Milkshake (or, Breakfast)

I can't wait to try this. I've never thought of making a milkshake out of it but it's common here in Kentucky to take leftover cornbread from the night before and for breakfast pouring whole milk and a little sorghum over it.

What To Do With Cornmeal (Other Than Just Make Cornbread)

Make cornbread with chopped up chicharrones in them

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Ferrall's Burgers in Hopkinsville, KY. Super thin, old-school sliders with fried onions, mustard, cheese, and pickles. A cheeseburger is $2, fries only $1 and drinks only $1. You can feed your whole family for $20.

33 Great Bites from Taste of the Lower East Side

There is a mixup on slide 28. It shows a picture and labels a "Fried Chicken Biscuit with Orange Marmalade" but the describing paragraph is about a sweet pea vodka cocktail.

How to Make Koolickles, Kool-Aid Soaked Pickles

I've made these just slightly sweet with cherry koolaid and sliced them thin to place on top of burgers. It kind of takes the place of the beets and pineapple on an Aussie burger. I only use claussen pickles though because I find them to be so much crunchier than other brands.

Snapshots from Kenya: Eating Roasted Goat from a Nyama Choma in Nairobi

Tusker beer! I love that stuff. I fell in love while on safari in Kenya back in 2005. I found a purveyor in west Kentucky that imports it for me. At $2.00 a beer it's not outrageous by any means.

Jamaican Beef Stew with Rice

Goat meat would send me back to the islands with this dish. All I need is a rum punch in my glass.

Tippling With Tea: 3 Tea-Based Cocktails to Make at Home

I like to make a "John Daly" on really hot summer days. It's a play on the "Arnold Palmer" which is a 50:50 mix of iced tea and lemonade. I mix black ice tea with bourbon, lemon juice and simple syrup. It's very refreshing and the only garnish needed is a porch swing to sip it from.

Not Technically Coffee, But: The Kentucky Coffeetree

We don't actually drink this in Kentucky. We stick with the other kind of "Kentucky brown water."

The Best Drinks We Drank in February

I love Tusker beer. I talked my favorite beer proprietor into carrying it a couple years back.

The Simpsons: The Food Wife

Did anyone else watch The Simpsons episode tonight titled "The Food Wife?" I was wondering what everyone thought about their dry humor and inclusion of various celebrity chefs.
Personally, I thought that it was hilarious. It puts a lot of the food trends into reality and shows just how ridiculous that they really are.
