Coca Cola Brownies

Prefer my Coke with bourbon rather than in this recipe. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

curiously excited to make these, but a disappointing result

The Best Rib Tip and Hot Link Combo in Chicago

Nothing is forever! No more rib tips on Fat Willy's menu. I'm still a big fan, but how does a place with FAT in its name lose rib tips and add a quinoa mushroom burger to their menu? As if that wasn't painful enough, wings are now a special and not a regular menu items. I'm currently seeking a BBQ counselor to help me cope with the loss of loved ones (tips and wings) off of the Fat Willy's menu.

21 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches We Love in Chicago

Edzo's of Evanston's inside out grilled cheese is not for the faint of heart or for the lactose intolerant. The outer part of the sandwich is encased with grilled Parmesan so it is cheese bread and cheese. My daughter had one and was in Cheesetopia!

Kansas City 'Cue

In KC today and went to Oklahoma Joe's, Gates, Bryant's, and LC's this afternoon. We waited for an hour for OK Joe's and really enjoyed it. Burnt Ends Sandwich was terrific and ribs were done to perfection as no sauce was needed. Well worth the wait! Gates has great beans and the may I help you thing is funny as they sounded a little less than convincing. Fries with sauce are addicting. Heard Bryant's beef is what to order, but went with sausage and burnt ends sandwich. We'll go back for the beef. LC's is the definition of great burnt ends. Big chunks of moist, just right fat, with chewy bark. The best taste of the day.
