The Q and the South Beach Wine and Food Festival

Martie Duncan, MartieKnowsParties.com I’ve been grilling since I was a kid… duh, I’m from the South. We all think our sauce is the best and we all think even if we can’t beat those television chefs in the kitchen, we would smoke them on the grill.

By: Michelle Klug When cooking for your family or yourself, presentation probably isn’t your first concern.

Product Spotlight: Zevia’s Natural Diet Soda

By: Michelle Klug Some people are lucky enough to love water so much, they have no problem fulfilling the 13 cups (16 for men) per day requirement. I, on the other hand, have trouble getting excited about such a bland liquid. I crave it when I am really, really thirsty or after a workout but 13 cups a day? Nah! […]

After all, he’s an Iron Chef. Bobby is a true professional and that sometimes reads as tough and rigid. He’s anything but that. Underneath […]

Desiring More Downton Abbey

By Deanne Revel, MyRecipes Contributor For Downton Abbey fans, last week’s season three finale was bittersweet. We’ll likely be waiting some time for season four to air as it just began filming this month. But to help us get our Downton fix until then there’s “The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook” by Emily Ansara Baines. The book lists more than 150 […]
