    Wall Street Journal (A-hed) ^ | 10/15/17 | Jennifer Smith
    Long-haul truckers, who spend weeks on end working and sleeping in spaces the size of a modest suburban bathroom, say life on the road does have its monastic charms. Cooking dinner at 70 miles an hour has never been one of them. ... Trucker-chefs swap recipes online and compete in virtual contests like the “Chopped Challenge” run by Big Truck Cooking, a 12,600-member Facebook group whose recent contest entries include slow-cooked Thai peanut pork and skillet shepherd’s pie.

    KPRC-TV ^ | October 11, 2017 | Amy Davis - Reporter/Consumer Expert
    Fast food is supposed to fast and cheap; but by the time you order an entree, side and a drink, you can easily spend $8 or more. Consumer expert Amy Davis scoured fast food menus to show you how you can fill up for $5 or less. There are a lot of fast food chains now offering $5 deals. Those didn't make Davis' cut because you'd need more than $5 after taxes. We wanted to see which fast food chains could fill up our tanks mid-day if we have nothing more than a five dollar bill. Forget about those combo...

    It appeared to be the latest federal giveaway here in Arkansas -- but turned out to be more of a takeaway. File it under WFA for Waste, Fraud and Abuse, and there's no telling how long it might have gone on if a snap inspection hadn't revealed the extent of this scandal. It all happened in Pine Bluff, where a local food-distribution program that was supposedly helping to feed the poor was wasting the food instead. It hurts just to read about all the staples that were left to spoil under the auspices of Neighbor to Neighbor, which might better...
  • Richard Branson is predicting the end of meat in 30 years. Will he be right?

    Think you can’t live a fulfilling life without eating traditional meat? Richard Branson, billionaire founder of Virgin Group, thinks you can. In fact, he thinks meat as we know it will be completely different in just a few decades. “I believe that in 30 years or so, we will no longer need to kill any animals and that all meat will either be clean or plant-based, taste the same and also be much healthier for everyone,” Branson wrote in a blog post about Virgin’s investment in Memphis Meats, a company that synthesizes meat using real animal cells. “One day we...

    McDonald's is experiencing a feeding frenzy thanks to lots of people in legal pot states suddenly having the munchies. A joint study by Consumer Research Around Cannabis and Green Market Report found that 43 percent of people who bought recreational marijuana in the last four weeks chose McDonald’s as their go-to fast food spot. Another 18.3 percent went to Taco Bell, 17.8 percent went to Wendy’s and 17.6 went to Burger King. The study looked at Denver; Las Vegas; Washington, D.C.; Sacramento, California; and Portland, Oregon—all of which have legalized the wacky tobaccy. There's probably no link between pot consumption...

    For some Americans, going out to dinner is a treat, planned and budgeted for. For others, it's just another Tuesday night. And Wednesday. And Thursday. And that second group of people is becoming the majority. The number of Americans who enjoy cooking is declining, while the prevalence of food delivery startups, meal kit subscriptions and culinary-centric television shows grows. In the Harvard Business Review, researcher Eddie Yoon shares data he's gathered over two decades working as a consultant for consumer packaged goods companies. Early in Yoon's career, he conducted a survey that determined that Americans fell into one of three...

    That news you read about Donald Trump ordering his steak doused in ketchup—that’s fake news. Or at least that’s what David Burke, the New York chef who runs BLT Prime inside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., says. While the president does in fact prefer his steak well-done, Burke says that ketchup was “probably for a side of French fries,” not his dry-aged New York strip... Q: Let’s talk about the steak order heard around the world. In February, President Trump came here and ordered his steak well-done and with ketchup. What was your reaction? Well, first off he...

    Shumaila Shah knows how to cook her husband's favorite dish the way one might say the Pledge of Allegiance. "Cook onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger crushed together," she said, articulating something so familiar it didn't need words, English or Punjabi. "Salt, pepper, garam masala. Put meat in and add water to make a gravy. Cook until the meat is soft, not tough." How long? She thinks for a moment. "A half-hour; it depends on the meat," she said. "Then add the potatoes, because they take a shorter time to cook. We eat it with naan." The recipe for her aloo...

    CNN’s “Parts Unknown” host, Anthony Bourdain, said last week that he would poison Donald Trump if the celebrity chef was asked to cater a peace summit between the President and Kim Jong Un. “Hemlock,” Bourdain simply replied when asked by TMZ what he would serve Trump and the North Korean dictator. Hemlock is a poisonous plant that has been used as a method of execution. The video was published by TMZ last week, but is just now gaining attention. CNN recently fired Kathy Griffin for posing with a bloody head made to look like Trump. The liberal network also cut...
