Regional Chain Restaurants

K-bobs is a chain? Who new!

Regional Chain Restaurants

I second the Burgerville comment but add that it began in Vancouver, Washington.

I also like Blake's Lotaburger in Tex and New Mexico. Not sure if it is anywhere else. But the green chile cheeseburger is damn good and they cook everything when you order it. I know, gasp!

What Are Your Favorite Sustainable Food Stories in America?

Los Poblanos near Albuquerque, NM is awesome. They are a CSA and source all kids of good food from local farmers and ranchers and they also have an inn that is beautiful. They're good folks.

Have You Tried the Wendy's Breakfast Menu?

Keep in mind that I ate this in the airport in Phoenix, AZ, and it was after "sleeping" in the airport after my flight was canceled, but, I had the oatmeal bar thing, coffee, and some fruit. It wasn't bad. It was probably even healthier than the crap I had for dinner the night before.

I have to admit that I never eat fast food. But when that's the only thing open and you're bored and irritated, it hits the spot.

The Burger Lab: The Pueblo Slopper (And How To Make Pueblo Green Chili)

Yep... here comes the New Mexican to get all upset about it and announce loudly (via written text) that it's spelled with an 'e'. But I've had these before and they are great. We have them down here, too. But they are likely rip-offs of the one in Pueblo.

USDA picking fights with pizza-lovers.

The concept that all pizza is unhealthy is also misleading in that pizza varies. Now, too much is unhealthy, but there are wholewheat crusts and I feed my very picky 2-year-old Amy's low-sodium spinach pizza and don't feel bad doing it, or we make pizza at home and it's fine. So, I agree that there are no bad foods, but there are better foods and pizza can be a better food.

Cook the Book: 'The Sriracha Cookbook'

Fried teriyaki tofu with rice and steamed veggies requires and becomes amazing with Sriracha.

The Food Lab: Great Chile Verde Without Hatch Chiles

The truly amazing chile is going to be New Mexican green chile, in my opinion, but I think if you really can't get it, this looks like a good recipe. But I feel for you, I do. I did find some grocery stores in Portland, OR that roasted Hatch chile and it was fantastic. The line was very long, but the fresh-roasted chile was worth the wait.

Cook the Book: 'Appetite for Reduction'

Well, I'm a vegetarian so most of my food is animal product free (although not a vegan because, well, pizza is an important food group) but I love the portobella wellington recipe from Cafe Flora, in Seattle. It's in their cookbook and it is fantastic.

Cook the Book: Anjum's New Indian

Two Fat Ladies. I loved that show when it was on PBS and I love it even more now. Every scene of cooking is great but so are those motorcycle scenes where one of the ladies is in the side car. Awesome!

Cook the Book: The Sunset Cookbook

I am on a soup kick lately. Partly that is due to some serious colds I keep catching from my toddler, but also because warm veggies in a broth are so good and there are so many different ways to make a great soup filled with winter veggies.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

Cook the Book: 'The Essential New York Times Cookbook'

Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. I love that thing. I'm mostly a veggie, so it's fantastic as a starting-point for almost any dish and if I am making stuff with fish or other meat in it, the recipes lend themselves to that addition without thinking too much about it. Frankly, after working all day, I need something that requires little, if any-thought.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

T-bone has always been my favorite because I love the meat near that bone and I love that little bit of marrow.

Cook the Book: 'My Sweet Mexico'

OK, Scotland may not be exotic, but I had a deep fried Mars bar with ice cream, chocolate sauce and marshmallow whipped topping with a bunch of nuts on top. I ate this after having deep fried pizza with chips. Yeah... I was in college so I suppose my stomach could handle that. It would kill me in an instant now, but it were good.. sooo good.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Charles Chocolates' Edible Chocolate Holiday Box

A warm brownie sundae (caramel and chocolate sauce but no cherry unless it's just off a tree in the summer).

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Truffle Lovers Pasta

Yes and it's just fantastic. I love it on pasta with a little olive oil and white wine and cracked pepper topped with shaved truffle and some sauteed morels.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Russ & Daughters Brunch Package

A really good bagel with lox, a fried egg, red onion, and some tomato is my perfect breakfast when paired with a good cup of coffee.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Southside Market Sausage

Quarters, in ABQ NM

Cook the Book: 'Baked Explorations'

It's not very fancy, but I adore Golden Crown Panaderia in Albuquerque, NM. They have awesome bread, and great baked treats but my favorite is their artisan pizza on blue corn crust. It's fantastic and takes pizza to another level. Plus, I can pick up cookies, pizza, a loaf of bread, and a pumpkin empanada and just have a carb fest.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Truffle Lovers Pasta

I've had it shaved over a mushroom risotto. It was love in a bowl.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: La Belle Farms Foie Gras

Peking duck here too.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Charles Chocolate

Flourless chocolate cake with raspberry sauce

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: La Quercia

the classic melon way is my favorite, but I also like it as a substitute for canadian bacon on a white pizza with pineapple.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Russ & Daughters Brunch Package

Please, please, please let me win this one because bagels with lox and the works is my absolute favorite. I also love a really good bagel with lox and a fried egg sandwich.

What's your favorite kind of bagel?

I absolutely love homemade bagels, boiled and everything. But I was trying to figure out what kind to make. I think my favorite kind is pumpernickel. That seems a little more involved than I want to attempt now, but it got me thinking, what are your favorite flavors of bagels and where do you get the best ones?

Anthony Bourdain and Vegetarians/Vegans

I must admit, I'm basically a vegetarian. From time to time I'll eat a crab or a some oysters (because they are "sustainable") but that happens about once or twice a year. My reasons for being a veg are not that I don't love food of all kinds, but that I just can't bring myself to partake in food that I believe is seriously harming the planet. But, I say, live and let live. I don't need to look down on others. But, as much as I love Anthony's show, his aggressive "anti-veg" stance is, in my opinion, just ignorant. What do y'all think? Do you agree with him and if so, why? I need help understanding his viewpoint. Maybe I'll stop being irritated at him if someone can explain.
