How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: Finding a Space is Just the Beginning

I'm interested in what these insurance terms were that only one broker in all the world could manage to insure.

Poll: What's Your Favorite Type of Bun for Burgers?

I really like pão de queijo as a bun for sliders. The small, warm, cheesy bread is a perfect vehicle for a tiny patty of beef.

The Chicago Food Glossary: A Guide to the Unique Dishes of the Windy City

What about a Mother-in-Law? A Chicago tamale (different from a regular, Mexican tamale) in a hot dog bun covered in chili.

Taste Test: Every Flavor of Combos

You missed your chance to try the cheeseburger combos! They tasted like a McDonald's cheeseburger, but not in a good way.

Win the Valentine's Day Collection from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Their Saigon Cinnamon flavor. Sweet, yet a hint of spice. plus its red. Too bad I rarely see it offered anymore.

First meal of 2012

Dim sum here. Too many plates to recount and the food coma after makes it difficult to remember.

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

All foods, or lacking food, meta-Sriracha... Sriracha-covered Sriracha.

Weekend Book Giveaway: 'Roadfood'

There is this little shack in Galion, OH that makes the best shredded chicken sandwiches. If I'm ever passing through I have to stop there.

AHT Weekend Book Giveaway: 'Hamburger America' by George Motz

Probably SoCal. But being in NY, that's a long trip, so I'd probably eat my way through a corridor on the U.S... and hopefully I'd survive long enough to get to my destination.

Drink the Book: 'Jelly Shot Test Kitchen'

Regular Jell-O shot with that boozy whipped cream, a.k.a uncreative but slightly more alcoholic.

Drink the Book: 'Punch' by David Wondrich

Vodka, Blue Curacao, midori, grapefruit juice and V8. (I know it sounds weird with V8, but other than making it opaque and adding a little "texture," you can't taste it)

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Russ & Daughters Brunch Package

Eggs Benedict... and a bloody mary (I know, not very original considering the responses above me)

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

Watching my dog walk around the kitchen, pounding his paws on the floor in demand while I cooked bacon. (I caved to his demands)

Hooray! It looks like I'll be having a full rack of McRibs for dinner!

I like to spike my bourbon with some more bourbon. That and bourbon pecan pie.

'Graeter's Ice Cream: An Irresistible History,' a New Book by Robin Davis Heigel

I had graeters last night and jeni's today. All I can say is it's good to live in Columbus.

Ode to Combos

I do love combos, but the cheeseburger combos tasted like a stale McDonalds cheeseburger. Its a trippy experience to say the least. But the new jalapeno cheddar tortilla ones are really good.
