The First Thanksgiving Menu

by Steven Doyle

As our day of Thanksgiving fast approaches we wanted to look back and see why and how our Pilgrim ancestors celebrated their feast.

Dallas Enchilada All Star Line Up

by Steven Doyle

Growing up in Dallas it would be difficult to avoid the enchilada. The Tex-Mex beauties delicately filled, rolled and sauced for your dining pleasure. And what great memories most Texans have as children growing up noshing on the humble enchilada each Wednesday in our public schools, the same day that El Fenix  offers their inexpensive deal on enchiladas. Perhaps some lay in puddles of grease, but we know how to sop that up with a tortillas for an extra side-car treat.

Time Is Ticking For Toys For Tots

by Crave Staff

Every year, Toys for Tots provides toys for children who otherwise wouldn’t have much this holiday season. The need is great. But with a little effort, you can make a big difference in a child’s life.  With this year’s deadline for donations coming up on us quickly, and being short on toys this year, help is still needed.  Please visit the Toys For Tots website for the locations still receiving donations.  Be nimble, be quick and bring some cheer to a child’s Christmas.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October – December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area.

Our Favorite Pescaderia: Mambo Seafood

by Steven Doyle

Mambo Seafood opened on Northwest Highway just a few years back, and is located across the street from Pappas BBQ. For those unfamiliar with the Texas based casual dining chain, they are originally located in the Houston area and have since spread to other areas across Texas. You will typically find the restaurant nestled into primarily Hispanic neighborhoods as this seems to be their target market.  As any Texan who is grocery savvy knows, this does not preclude anyone from joining in the fiesta.        Continue reading
