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.
Oh my god.
Tour de France.
Sweet potato fries with blue cheese for the win.
Peanut M&Ms! Classic.
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?
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.
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.
Stopping at an apple orchard in France on the way from Paris to Normandy we had fresh picked apples and apple cider! Delish!
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.
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!
I'm from North Carolina but I have to say Savannah pralines! Delicious.
