    Forget the filet mignon. A great poet once said, "beef is what’s for dinner." Unfortunately, that dinner -- at times -- can be wildly overpriced and not nearly as well-marbled as it should be. What gives? We hate to break it to you, but you’re likely ordering a cut of beef that’s totally overrated while overlooking another criminally cheap option that still tastes great. Price point does not determine quality! Thankfully, a group of chefs from around the country shared with us their secret cuts under the condition that they also got to talk trash about filet mignon (and a...

    Mixing Indian, European, Arabic and Indian flavours, Zanzibar pizza embodies the islands themselves. But where does this wildly popular street food come from?"Pole pole." Slowly. Spend a few days in Tanzania and you'll hear the Swahili expression more often than you can count – when you're trying to climb Mount Kilimanjaro at a steady clip, perhaps, or anytime you need a nudge to remind you to enjoy the more languid pace of coastal life in the East African nation. In this particular instance, the words came courtesy of a food vendor at Zanzibar's Forodhani Gardens night market – a gentleman...

    The universal feel-good elixir expresses itself deliciously from culture to culture.It’s rare that a dish appears in cuisines all over the world. Chicken soup — the global feel-better elixir — is one of them. Soothing and comforting at a time when so many Americans are ailing from a pandemic or smarting from bruising political battles, it is this season’s perfect panacea. Chicken soup can celebrate what so many of us have in common: When someone sniffles, moms and grandmas (and increasingly pops and grandpas) around the globe drop chicken in water with aromatics and simmer away. At the same...
  • Grilled Bison Quesadillas, Anybody?

    They’ll feed you plenty — and plenty good — at Triple Creek Ranch. They’ll also teach you to cook.I threw my bison quesadilla on the grill and waited for it to char. The sizzle mingled with the sound of icicles dripping from the overhang of the cabin. The deck overlooked a large pond surrounded by pine trees. Chef Jacob Leatherman flipped the quesadilla, and soon he and the five of us taking the morning’s cooking class at Triple Creek Ranch headed back inside to sample the latest dish.Leatherman makes a point of nurturing relationships with the ranchers and farmers in...

    Pizza is always there for you. At your eighth birthday party with all your friends and that clown, it was there for you. During your late-night college cram sesh, it was there for you. After a long day of work, a hot cheesy slice was there to comfort you — and maybe a bottle of wine too. Pizza is a staple of American meals, which means it’s pretty easy to come across. It can sometimes feel like there is a pizzeria around every corner, but there’s just something about a great pizza. Here is where to find the 101 best...
  • Eating More Plants and Less Meat Lowers Blood Pressure, Study Finds...Changing to a complete vegetarian diet isn't necessary to heart health benefits, discover researchers

    The Epoch Times ^ | By Mat Lecompte August 13, 2020 Updated: August 13, 2020
    New research finds that a plant-based diet can lower blood pressure even if small amounts of meat and dairy are also consumed. The study from the University of Warwick suggests that any effort to eat more plant-based foods can benefit blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attacks. Researchers reviewed 41 studies involving 8,416 participants, which included the effects of seven different plant-based diets on blood pressure. These included the DASH diet, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, Vegan, Nordic, high fiber, and high fruit and vegetables. The clinical trials offered a systematic review which concluded that most of these diets were able...
  • 8 Foods That Reduce Blood Sugar Levels Over Time

    MSN ^ | Aug 11 2020 | Christina Manian, RDN
    Whether you have prediabetes or not, knowing what blood sugars are and how they work is important, as prolonged high blood sugars can lead to chronic illness. The food you eat will metabolize to glucose, or sugar, which fuels your body's cells to function properly. However, issues occur when the concentration of glucose in the blood is higher than the body's needs. The key to maintaining steady blood sugar levels is to choose the right foods. While there are no foods that will cause blood sugar levels to drop dramatically, there are foods that reduce blood sugar average readings over...

    You know what we could really use? One of these… only for 2020. Absent that I think I’ll just try to squeeze everything I can out of what’s left of summer. I’ll start with some juicy tomatoes of all colors, size, shape and stripes because that’s just the way I am: completely onboard with diversity. Combined with some zucchini, sausage,halloumi and a few other ingredients the tomatoes will turn out a fine dinner for you. Summer tomato and zucchini halloumi bake  Serve warm, topped with fresh basil and toast for dipping. The spinach is optional and you can sub fresh...

    It’s been four and a half years since Chick-fil-A made the difficult decision to pull its fan-favorite col slaw side from menus, and its tang still lingers in our hearts and mouths. "For a long time, we were really hesitant to take anything off the menu because we couldn't bring ourselves to disappoint anybody," David Farmer, senior vice president of menu development for Chick-fil-A told Business Insider in 2016. "But as our sales volumes grew, it just wasn't feasible to keep adding to the menu without taking anything away." *Wipes eyes* Recognizing the pain the coleslaw’s loyal fanbase was experiencing,...

    I’m going to leave you to Taco Tuesday on your own as we’re leaving for the dark side (Gretchen’s Miserable Michigan} tomorrow and what can I tell you? It’s a lot of work no matter how many times you do it. So feel free to start your day in the pre-dawn hours with Ms. P’s Breakfast Tacos. I suppose there are worse ideas, although none come to mind immediately. Improper social distancing down at the chicken food truck, without masks: looks pretty naughty. I don’t know what’s in a breakfast taco but I’m guessing maybe chicken precursors?  Perhaps with green...

    The coronavirus pandemic has seen its impact hit nearly every area imaginable across the world. Perhaps the largest industry to see its demand climb as high as ever are grocery stores. From mega-corporation supermarkets to local grocery shops, stores are struggling to keep many items in stock. First, it was the toilet paper craze that settled over in the early going of the outbreak. Then it was the cleaning supplies from sanitizing wipes to hand soap. A new hard-to-find item now happens to be frozen pizza. Stores across the states are finding it hard to keep the easy-to-cook products in...

As the batter hits the oil, it seemingly takes on a...
