Sauced: Lexington Dip

I used to be barbecue-spoiled. I grew up in the heart of NC and went to college in the mountains... the barbecue where I live now (Tallahassee, FL) just isn't up to par. This makes me miss home.

Cook the Book: 'Avec Eric'

Oh my god.
Tour de France.

Cook the Book: 'The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook'

Sweet potato fries with blue cheese for the win.

Halloween Poll: What's Your Favorite Peanutty/Peanut Butter Candy?

Peanut M&Ms! Classic.

Just the Flax, Ma'am: How To Incorporate Flax Seeds Into Your Diet

I have been desperately looking for a flax-seed-cracker recipe to imitate some delicious curry-flavored ones that I got at the Boone, NC farmers market last summer. Ideas? Help?

Poll: Do You Buy Store Brands More Often Than Name Brands?

There are a few exceptions where I simply won't budge from the name brand because of the taste, but for the most part I want to spend the least amount of money possible. I live in Florida, and the Publix brands are usually pretty decent.

Poll: Should Coffee Shops Ban Laptops?

If any of the shops around where I live banned laptops they would probably go under. I live in a college town where pretty much all of their business is student-based and a shop is a nice place to study, but isn't like home (where you can go stir-crazy) or the library (where you have to be super quiet).One of the coffee shops near where I live asks that you buy something every two hours or they ask you to leave. I think that's pretty reasonable.

Cook the Book: 'Farm to Fork'

Stopping at an apple orchard in France on the way from Paris to Normandy we had fresh picked apples and apple cider! Delish!

Cook the Book: 'Mary Mac's Tea Room'

I live in the South so good Southern cooking is a daily experience. However, my most memorable experience was discovering a little shack off of I-95 in South Carolina. It was literally some of the most delicious barbecue I have ever had. Juicy, vinegary, meaty goodness! Wish I could remember the name.

Cook the Book: 'Fiesta at Rick's'

I'd love to spend a day with Ina Garten. "I only use GOOD vanilla, just faaaabulous!" I'll bring orange tulips if you bring dinner!

Weekend Giveaway: 'United Cakes of America'

I'm from North Carolina but I have to say Savannah pralines! Delicious.
