Bit some heads, suck tail and scream a glorious chorus to our pals down on the bayou for sending us the good stuff.   Continue reading

I am stepping out on a culinary limb today and pronouncing the end to all things taco.

Well, not really. The taco is a delicious canvass for enjoying various meats and vegetables, and I think it has had a pretty good run, especially in these parts for the past several years.  Continue reading
