Attention Little Rock foodies, if you are not on Twitter, you are missing out on some of the most tantalizing and engaging food related goings-on in this city. It’s that simple. Why Twitter? Oh, you are already on Facebook? Perhaps it’s a personal preference, but I feel Twitter gives the user a more intimate look into the life of the food industry—its chefs, its patrons, its owners. Surprisingly, this insight is expressed in the very limited confines of 140 characters. But I firmly believe that a food scene that has learned to embrace Twitter, exploiting it for all it can be, will propel itself forward at a rate exponentially faster than a city that doesn’t. I want to see where you are eating. I want to know exactly what you are cramming down your throat in real time. I want to know what evil science experiments the Little Rock food labs are cooking up at the moment. I want to see dinner specials and dessert menus. If you own a restaurant, and you aren’t using Twitter, I can truly not fathom why you are neglecting such a valuable (and free!) marketing tool. Oh look! My friend is eating lasagna at The Pantry…geez, I better get over there and follow his lead. It works, folks.
For all you Tweeters, and non-Tweeters who we can hopefully convince to join our happy throng, here is our list of the greatest and most important food related Twitter feeds to follow in Central Arkansas. This list represents individuals, businesses, and chefs…a hodge-podge of ne’er-do-wells, ragamuffins, sweethearts, and quasi-geniuses, all working together to support and enhance the Arkansas food scene. #StartFollowingTheseFolks
Kevin Shalin (@TheMightyRib): Kevin is no stranger to the Eat Arkansas family, but in the relatively short time since he moved to Little Rock, there is probably no one that has been more enthusiastic about and instrumental in helping build and shape our food community. Clever, kind, honest, and witty, his tweets are always a treat. He’s also pioneered some incredible foodie meet-ups (such as The Pantry pig roast and a coffee cupping at Guillermo’s). He also has a pretty wicked beard—the ladies love it.
Zara Abbasi (@Zara1024): Incredibly sweet and chock full of food related knowledge; the girl clearly has good taste. Also, she may or may not be forming an underground cake business (more on that in the near future).
Joel DiPippa (@Joel_DiPippa): If you’ve lived in Arkansas for, say, more than 2 hours, you probably already know Joel, so he likely needs no introduction. But the man is simply a wealth of information. And while his brilliance is certainly not limited to food, cooking, and cocktails, in these his knowledge is truly unparalleled. I’ve also considered hiring him as my personal stylist, should I ever find myself on a red carpet of some sort in the future. His loving new wife, Amanda (@al_dipippa) ain't just arm candy either. The girl knows her grub as well, making the two of them a near-supernatural power couple within the Little Rock food scene. But please refrain from referring to them as "JoeManda."
The Local Lime/Big Orange/ZAZA empire (@LocalLime, @BigOrangeBurger, @zaza_pizza): not only do they produce some of the finest food in the state—with a slew of awards to prove it—these folks also run one of the most powerful PR campaigns in Central Arkansas. Led by the talented Amber Brewer (@ambirdLR), their tweets are undeniably effective in stimulating salivary glands and getting people in the doors of their restaurants. Truly a model unto any other business looking to do Twitter right.
Thanh Rasico (@ThanhRasico): She may be relatively new to the Twitterverse, but she’s certainly no stranger to fine dining. In conjunction with her excellent food blog, Red Kitchen Recipes, Thanh has proven numerous times that in the kitchen, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Erin Robinson (@Erin_in_AR): A woman who has shown herself to be both well-traveled and well-versed in all things food in Little Rock and beyond. Clearly, a person with a generous number of dining experiences under her belt, her suggestions, tweets, and musings on the Central Arkansas food scene should not be ignored.
Welcome back to another edition of "Food News Roundup," where I occasionally try to link to some of the good stuff happening around the state. It's been a good week for us foodies here at the Times, and if you haven't had a chance to check out the "Best Restaurants" issue, stop wasting your time reading this and go get one. For the rest of you, here's the news from the land of food.
*All kinds of buzzed: If you've gotten used to starting your day with a cup of joe from Guillermo's Gourmet Grounds, you might be interested to know you can end your day with G3, too. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook for updates on their ongoing series of wine and beer tasting events. For more about the fun that can be had with G3, check out this post from The Mighty Rib about a recent coffee cupping event held at the Rodney Parham java joint.
*Always a bridesmaid: Our friends at Sync magazine are taking nominations for their own, obviously inferior, readers choice poll through Friday. Why don't you stick it to them by nominating Eat Arkansas for the "Best Blog" category?
*How this garden grows: I don't know how familiar you all are with Dunbar Community Garden, the two acre "classroom" that serves students from Gibbs International Magnet Elementary School and Dunbar Magnet Middle School, but it's a wonderful community project. Of particular interest to me is the fact that Dunbar grew hops last year, and Brewmaster Josiah Moody of Vino's has been using them in some of his special cask-conditioned beers. It's not every brewery that has organic hops growing just down the street, so check them out and consider a donation.
*Oh well, whatever, nevermind: After a month away from Little Rock that followed a month-long "farewell tour," tearful good-byes, and a good bit of purple prose from this and other publications, Michael Juiliano is returning to take up the mantle of Hot Dog Mike once more. He apparently wants to peddle his own brand of hot dogs and open up to 25 franchise carts around the state. I'm not really sure we need that many hot dog carts, but best of luck to the guy. Full press release on his blog.
*Gone, doggy, gone: Many of you already know, but Dogtown Coffee closed their doors on Sunday. Just two years removed from a World Cheese Dip Championship, the harsh and competitive world of food took its toll. They will be missed.
*Why, God, why: As a last bit of news, my colleague Daniel Walker informs me that Taco Bell will be serving their insanely popular Doritos Locos Tacos with a new Cool Ranch flavor shell starting March 7th. I've heard the flavor goes well with the taste of horseflesh.
Got any food news we can use? Let us know down there in the comments.
There are few things that pair better with football than chicken wings. What is it about watching hulking, brutish men crack skulls that makes me want to rip the flesh off chicken bones? But the entire ordeal—licking sticky wing sauce off your fingers, dipping things in bleu cheese dressing—is as much a part of the ideal gameday party as halftime shows and Doritos commercials. Now, I hear there is some game on this weekend...I'll be watching, but at this point, I'm more concerned about what I'll be eating.
What's the winning formula for the perfect wings? It's simple, really. First, meaty, plump chicken wings. Nothing worse than piling your plate high with wings, only to find out you've been duped, and left with a mountain of inedible bone and cartilage. Second, a proper degree of saucing. Not so much as to overwhelm the chicken, but enough to get your tongue aroused and your fingers left with a thin coating after each bite. Third, proper cooking. Some are fried, some are baked or smoked, but whatever the method, the goal is to achieve tender, juicy meat which easily peels from the bone and a small amount of crunchy, crisped skin on its exterior.
We've heard a decent amount of chatter among commenters about wings since Michael elaborated on the merits of The Tavern Sports Grill in WLR a few weeks ago. While I've yet to confirm these findings, I’m certainly interested in finding the best wings in central Arkansas. I've found excellent wings at the NLR favorite, Chicken King, and I'm fairly certain their business will be booming up this weekend. I'm sure there are great wings to be had all over Little Rock, but I now feel prompted to express my love for some of my favorite: the honey-chile-sesame wings from ZAZA.
I realize that I probably come off as a bit of a cheerleader for this Heights favorite. I've probably done enough promotion for them amongst my friends to warrant a small place on their payroll, but the fact remains: these guys do things right, and their wings—one of my more recent explorations—are no exception. The honey-chile-sesame wings meet all the above mentioned criteria with ease. Soft, tender white meat, with crispy bits of skin speckling the surface of the wing. But that sauce...oh lawdy, is that a beautiful sauce. It might be classified as Asian-inspired, but the combination of sweet honey, spicy chile, and salty chicken skin plays so well in this instance with the subtle nutty tones of sesame, you'll be sucking your fingers for hours after the wings are gone in hopes that you'll find a speck of that sauce left over. Stick with bleu cheese as well, its sharp, tangy flavor is far superior to mere ranch.
If you are eating wings this weekend, where will you be grabbing them? Good wings at a Superbowl party are sure to win you a load of friends...and that's a lot more winning than the Ravens will see.
T.G.I. Food Feedback Friday! We welcome you back to Arkansas’ most fabulous forum for detailing all of your culinary adventures around our beautiful state. Keeping up with all the goings on in our local foodscape can be difficult, but this is our opportunity to unite in the name of food to help keep each other in the know. So if you’ve got some inside information on the uprising of a particular eatery, or a scoop on a local restaurant’s special dishes, here is your chance to clue us in.
Last week’s Food Feedback Friday was chock full of juicy tidbits from restaurants all over the state. Let’s review, shall we? Lemongrass Asian Bistro, a NLR establishment I’ve (sadly) yet to visit is still rustling up some internet chatter, but when it comes to Thai, the Little Rock food cart, kBird, is giving them a run for their money. There’s more pork love for Craig’s BBQ in De Vall’s Bluff, a town that should not be visited without a stop by the Family Pie Shop (which has even received mention in The New York Times). We heard some spicy talk on Star of India and Taj Majal, as well as the dish on fish, including rainbow trout and fried catfish, from the Capital Bar and Grill. There’s a new Italian joint in Monticello named Panorama, but there was a lot of praise for Italian staples, Vesuvio and Capeo; the latter is apparently offering an excellent elk scaloppini. We got a report on the spooning that went down last weekend at Loblolly Creamery, where they introduced the new flavors they’ve developed after returning from “Ice Cream University.” (The Mighty Rib has also posted an exceptional report on this sweet new development.) We heard some early words on the Antunes’ menu at Ashley’s, as Michael also detailed here after a recent visit. Lastly, we got wind of some blueberry pie worth braggin’ about at Oark General Store in Oark.
Got some succulent secret you’d like to share? Now’s your chance.
I am generally a fairly pleasant guy. But there a few things which I absolutely loathe: Oompa loompas. Grocery carts with rickety wheels. Ke$ha...and malls. Yes, that megatropolis of merchandise and make-up, the teenage parade of hormone-powered high schoolers, the circus show of glamour, glitz, and gaudiness. I am not a big fan of malls. However, I am also bound by matrimony to a woman whose heart rejoices at the mere whisper of shopping and shoe stores. Thus, I find myself skulking around a seemingly endless stretch of one-day sale wasteland more often than I would otherwise care to do. Perhaps if one could only find that thin silver lining around an otherwise ominous and incredibly gloomy cloud. Perhaps the promise of a decent meal could act as a soothing balm to an otherwise painful and torturous existence. But eating well in most malls is extremely difficult...and central Arkansas shopping centers are no exception.
The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is one of the major drawing forces to the Little Rock area for medical personnel and students from all over the nation. In addition to the main hospital and numerous outpatient clinics, UAMS also includes five colleges and graduate school programs and is a major center for education in the training of young professionals. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, administrators, and numerous other ancillary staff make up quite a sizable workforce, all part of the UAMS family. The medical center, which also includes such institutes as the Stephens Spine and Neurosciences Institute and the Jones Eye Institute, is also a tertiary care and specialty referral center for patients from the entire state of Arkansas and many surrounding areas. Essentially, if you live anywhere near Little Rock, there is a good chance that at some time in your life, you will find yourself at UAMS.
If you find yourself hanging out around UAMS, whether by choice or otherwise, you are bound to get hungry at some point and quite often, straying too far from the hospital is not an option. You may feel totally comfortable zipping over to nearby Hillcrest’s Café Bossa Nova with your IV still hanging, but your doctor may feel differently. So, the question remains: where does one find a decent meal in the hospital? Allow me to be of some assistance.
Welcome back to the most sizzling weekly forum in the entire state of Arkansas, Food Feedback Friday! If you've been tuned into this blog for some time now, you probably already know the drill by now. This is the place to provide us with your input on all things food in Arkansas. Maybe you'd care to share some kind remarks on one of your favorite restaurants, someplace newly discovered or even an old standby...this is your opportunity to spill the beans. Likewise, maybe there's some place that's harmed your palate and practically stolen your money in exchange for unacceptable food...let your wrath here be kindled. So long as you're talking food, we'd love to hear all about it.
Likewise, Food Feedback Friday is an ideal opportunity to share some secret discovery or inside scoop regarding restaurant openings or closings. I've already heard some early reports regarding the offerings of the highly anticipated and already carefully scrutinized Joel Antunes, successor to the throne at the majestic Capital Hotel. Reports are good, and I assure you we'll have full report here at the Times as soon as we're able to score a seat at this Frenchman's feet. Last week's Food Feedback Friday saw some minor celebration over the return of Oaklawn with its corned beef sandwiches and raw pleasures at the Oyster Bar. We also heard the word on Lemongrass Asian Bistro in NLR with their lovely drunken noodles and Thai basil chicken, bistek from Guadalajara also in NLR, grilled shrimp and veggies at Krazy Mike's, more praise for the kouign amann from Mylo Coffee Co. (which, if I may interject my personal opinion, may be the single best pastry in all of central Arkansas), cheese dip from Pancho's Villa in West Memphis, and fried catfish and hushpuppies from Eat My Catfish in Benton.
Tell your fellow foodies what they need to shove into their faces this weekend. It's never been a better time to eat out in Arkansas.
It’s Friday again, folks, and this weekend has come not a moment too soon. With the miserably cold weather beginning to relent just a tad, I’m sure many of us look forward to thawing out and returning to our regularly scheduled programming. Sure, it may be a bit damp out there, but don’t let that deter you from making the most of the fabulous culinary adventures awaiting the vigilant food explorer.
Food Feedback Friday means, once again, it’s your opportunity to proclaim your love or disdain for any of our local Arkansas restaurants. We, here at Eat, cherish your wisdom and recommendations dearly, so please don’t be shy and share your experiences with the rest of us.
Recently, however, close followers of this blog have already been teased with many juicy tidbits regarding current and future developments in Arkansas. Similarly, there (unfortunately) seems to be a few too many restaurant closings in our state. All of this, I suppose, is part of the natural life cycle of any regional food scene, but regardless, I’m always a little saddened to see a place close down.
I felt like this might be a good time to review what you all have been chatting about this past week:
What’s coming? We announced some exciting news regarding Travis McConnell’s project, Butcher and Public, coming to Little Rock in the not-so-distant future. Big Orange will be spreading its burger love to Midtowne Little Rock sometime early this summer (and I recently discovered that Scott McGehee is a Yelper…and apparently he really likes this new place called Local Lime). We’re all a little giddy over the thought of getting our very own Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken here in Little Rock…a bit of news first cited by sammy, but further reaffirmed by what the hell. Still waiting on the official word, but I assure you, Michael’s on it. Kat Robinson clues us into the resurrection of Calico County, who promises to keep loyal customers updated to their developments via their Facebook page. Lastly, Goof hints at the arrival of “Mamacita’s,” which looks like it may be replacing the old Height’s Café.
Who’s leaving us? Of course, we’ve already broken the bitter news that Hot Dog Mike will be taking his wieners to Jersey. Cozymel’s bit the dust some time ago. mordy was first to bear the bad news regarding the closing of Redbone’s Downtown. walker22 was first to tip us off to Union Bistro’s closing, but it appears as if they may simply be relocating, as (according to BlackWhiteGray) they’ve left a note on Urban Spoon stating, “Thanks to all our Union fans, but we are closed as of New Year’s Day. Look for us again at another location. Thanks!!!!!!” (And judging by their exuberant use of exclamation points, Union is very, very, very grateful to its customers.) We’ll get you the official word on this soon.
What are we eating? mordy is pleased with the wings at US Pizza, Kevin (a.k.a The Mighty Rib) is won over by Wendy’s, sammy is moved by the muffuletta pizza from Vino’s, and also sings praises to Stagecoach Grocery for their take on the muffuletta, catfish, and potato salad, rooibos and SocialistArkie say you can always count on 4 Square for a healthy meal, and jenniferb loves to carbo-load at La Regional’s panaderia.
Got any more to share? Now’s your chance.
It’s Friday, folks! The first of 2013. We, here at Eat Arkansas, are looking forward to another fabulous year of eating and exploring throughout the state of Arkansas. I’m incredibly optimistic about the future of our food scene. We’re fortunate to have some top-notch chefs, bakers, and restaurateurs in central Arkansas and I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve got brewing in their pots.
With New Year’s celebrations still visible in the rear view window, fill us in on how you decided to ring in 2013. What eats and drinks were at your party? Where did you decide to celebrate? There were plenty of parties around town, with many locales buzzing with the sounds of some excellent local music. Who caught your ear this year?
We love gathering your feedback on Eat Arkansas and we enjoy putting your suggestions to the test, so please keep ‘em coming! Recently, on Food Feedback Friday we discussed the impending arrival of Pizza Café to West Markham and the purported resurrection of the Villa’s old menu (via Kat Robinson), the perseverance of P.F. Chang’s, potato soup and roast beef sandwich from Old Mill Bakery (via NeverVoteRepublican), the Reuben sandwich, brats, and Belgian ale at The Flying Saucer (via edubb273), the seductive seafood noodle soup at Saigon Cuisine (via Red Kitchen Recipes), and the shrimp with Chinese vegetables with fried dumplings at Fantastic China (via cecil).
Have you discovered any new restaurants? Got any insight on recent menu changes? Heard any rumors about coming eateries in Arkansas? Please spill your secrets!
Ramen- We’ve all been subjected to the nine-cent, Styrofoam cup ramen specials at some point in our lives, but the dainty noodle dish is finally getting the proper respect and attention it deserves. All over America, patrons are lining up for steeping hot bowls full of handmade wheat noodles that curl and twist with cooking, tender pork belly or pork charshu, roasted garlic, soft boiled egg, cabbage, onions, and bean sprouts. Enjoying these dishes often requires one to alternate between soup-spoon and chopsticks, savoring the rich, often spicy chicken or fish based broth with chunks of meat or vegetables. In NYC, establishments such as David Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar and Minca are leading the pack. In Washington, DC, Toki Underground is serving up a delightful version of Taiwanese ramen with pulled pork, soft egg, red pickled ginger, sesame, and nori. And in Chicago, The Slurping Turtle is a favorite spot for ramen, serving their Tori ramen with baby bok choy, green onions, snow peas, and soft-poached egg. It’s clear that ramen is no longer reserved for the penniless college student.
Well folks, we certainly hope all our readers have managed to find a way to stay warm and dry during this messy week. Our home has had no power since Tuesday and this is the first time I've been able to find my way to a computer since that time. So if you are even able to access the internet and read this blog, count yourself lucky.
Things are still a little wild out there. I've braved the storm and snow everyday and driven around Little Rock and it's been a rather sobering scene. Businesses are shut down all over the city (particularly in my neck of the woods in West Little Rock), homes are dark, trees are strewn across roads and have snapped power lines in many neighborhoods. It's a mess, people, and we sincerely hope all our readers are doing well.
With our power out since Tuesday, of course we have not been able to prepare a warm meal this entire time. We've struggled to grab a bite at various restaurants around town. Some have fared better than others, but a good majority have not even been able to open their doors at all. The establishments that have been able to open are short on supplies, many have freezers and refrigerators full of spoiled food, and most are running limited menus. But it's possible to find a hot meal out there if you are able to get out and search.
Let us know how you are weathering the storm. Have you found any particular restaurants that have offered refuge through this madness? Personally, I have to give props to the PF Changs on Shakleford in West Little Rock. On Wednesday night, which seemed to be the peak of storm madness, we were without heat and power, our fridge was getting warmer, we had no means of cooking and our home was rather uncomfortable. I had family in town, so eight of us sat around aching for a hot meal and a place to get warm. We drove around the city for at least an hour looking for a place to eat...everything was closed. But then we ran across PF Changs, not normally my first choice for dining but it would suffice given the circumstances.
I was extremely impressed with this PF Changs' operation on that night. They were running the entire place with one manager and two servers. And this place was packed, given the fact that it was one of the few places open and it appeared that many Arkansans had similar desires to escape the confines of their dark, cold homes and grab a hot meal. Despite the short staff, PF Changs was able to serve a huge number of people, managed to bus tables, serve drinks, take care of a long line of take out orders, and simply made a lot of people happy that night. The food was decent. I still enjoy the flavors of their orange peel beef and kung pao chicken, and on this night it was manna to the taste. We've also been able to round up meals at Dogtown Cookery in NLR, David's Burgers, and Chipotle in WLR.
Let us know how you are faring. Hopefully next week will allow us to get back to our more regularly scheduled programming here on Eat Arkansas with more restaurant reviews and enticing food news. For now, I'm just hoping we can get our power back in a timely manner and they restore my internet access. If you've got any tips on restaurants or businesses out there that have helped you make this time more bearable, please share your thoughts. Stay warm, Arkansas.
Well, if you manage to keep your power, it looks like Christmas vacation just got a day longer. Little Rock recorded 9" of snow in some areas, a frozen precipitation total that makes my little Southern heart sink every time I read it. I originally intended this news round-up to be a place where we could all talk about what we ate for Christmas dinner and share left-over tips, and while I still want to do that, feel free to use this as an open thread to share snow-bound survival tips and your favorite snow ice cream methods.
*A drink to warm you: I ran into cocktail expert Joel DiPippa at Colonial Wine & Spirits a week or so ago, and while my favorite mixed drink consists of beer+glass, he had his arms full of tasty looking liquids. His resulting drink is a play on the classic Rob Roy, well worth a look.
*Kids cook: If you've ever wanted to inspire your kids to learn more about the kitchen, you might start with this post from Thanh Rasico of Red Kitchen Recipes. Her daughter made this tasty looking Taco Ring, and it looks easy enough for your kids to give it a try, too.
*Restaurant reviews: If you get tired of hearing me and Dan go on about restaurants (not that you'd ever really get tired of that), you might check out Eating In and Out and About, a local blog that has restaurant reviews interspersed with some good recipes.
*Protected goods: We all know that things like champagne are region-specific, but there are some lesser known products that are also protected. Including...rhubarb?
*A personal favorite: This week's recipe is from the Little Rock blog "Essence of Soul," and it's one of my favorite desserts of all time: Four Layer Pie. My mom used to make this every year for my birthday.
*Snow Day time waster: If you enjoyed last week's time waster, you might be excited to learn that there's a sequel: Sushi Cat 2.
And now we'll turn over the floor to all of you. Got a recipe you'd like to share? Done a restaurant review you'd like us to read? Know of a local blog that we're missing? Here's your chance to promote all those things. And as always, we want your restaurant recommendations, foodie news, and anything else. We might as well talk to each other since we're all snowed in!
Well, the weather outside is getting frightful, it’s far too frigid to be outdoors for long. Therefore, you’re better off spending your time indoors, surrounded by the folks you love and hot plate of food. Once again, we bring you Food Feedback Friday, the single greatest opportunity for eaters to sound off and let the world know what’s going on in the food community in Arkansas.
Perhaps you’ve got some favorite cold weather destinations…a place you go to escape the snow (if we ever actually see any this year). It’s perfect weather for soup, so why not share where you like to grab a bowl when you need some defrosting? Pho sounds fantastic right now, chili would be charming, I could jump into some jambalaya, and Chinese hot and sour soup would warm the heart of Jack Frost himself. Got any favorite cold weather dishes worth elaborating on? I've got family in town for a week and we've got an extensive list of restaurants to patronize including Dowtown Cookery, ZaZa, Delicious Temptations, David's Burgers, Rocky's Pub, Mylo Bakery, The Southern Gourmasian, and H.B.'s BBQ. In our family, we don't fool around when it comes to food.
At our last Food Feedback Friday, we discussed the fate of The Heights Café, breakfast offerings at Route 66, the imminent arrival of another Papa John’s in the Heights, more love for Taqueria Karina, sipping chocolate from Loblolly Creamery, and the coming of a second Pizza Café location to west Little Rock. Now’s your chance to tell us where you’ve been feeding your pie-hole. We’d all love to hear about it.
In our on-going quest to bring all of you the latest food news, we've instituted Foodie Feedback Friday, a discussion of what and where folks are eating. As a companion segment, we'd like to introduce the Monday Food News Roundup, a sort of open thread and clearing house for anything interesting we've come across from our local food bloggers and area restaurants as well as tidbits from around the web. Read something about food you'd like to share? Let us know in the comments!
*Capital Hotel: We announced here last week that the Capital Hotel has named Chef Joël Antunes as the replacement for the departed Lee Richardson. Local blogger Christie Ison has some more information about the new chef over on her blog, Fancy Pants Foodie.
*Social media: In this day and age, a strong social media presence is almost as important to a restaurant as a good menu and staff. For blogger Kevin Shalin, a lot of Little Rock restaurants are seriously missing the boat with social media, which he thoughtfully discusses over at his blog The Mighty Rib.
*Meet a blogger: From NWA Foodie, a profile of blogger Beth Stephens, including a tour of her kitchen. If you've ever felt like you didn't have the facilities to make great food, this is a great example of people making delicious things in a kitchen just like yours.
*End of the World Ice Cream: The ladies of Loblolly Creamery
will be offering $3 pints of ice cream all day on December 21st. Celebrate the end of the world with a pint of the South's best ice cream for half price!
*Recipe of the week: Just in time for Christmas comes our recipe of the week, a Fresh Apple Cake from Terri's Table blogger Terri Powers. Terri has been baking it up for the holiday season, so be sure to check her archives for a host of good things to cook.
*Monday time-waster: Finally, if you're in the mood to waste a little time, here's a fun foodie flash game for you involving a cat who can't get enough sushi.
I love these segments. Great job, Camp Friday Films!
Dan, are these the same nuts you made a few weeks back? Delicious...great recipe.
