There has been this terrific trend in past years of adding an egg to most anything to make a more supple and delicious. The burger is a prime target for this unabashed egging, and always a welcome garnish on any style of tartare. The egg, if prepared correctly, provides a silky self-saucing thrill that ups the ante to sandwiches, pasta and salads. Eggs are not just for breakfast. Today we explore a handful of primo examples of how the egg has enhanced many dishes in the Dallas area.    Continue reading

2019 Best Chili Finds in DFW

chili2.jpgby Steven Doyle

We have written about the history of chili, and Dallas is definitely a large part of that. The original Tolbert’s downtown served some of the best chili that could be found on the planet. Also the original Chilis’, the chain that can be found just about anywhere, opened over 40 years ago by Larry Lavine at the now-defunct Greenville Avenue and Meadow location served fantastic chili back in the day, with a recipe inspired by the first chili cook-off in Terlingua.

As we do each year, we bring you our favorite bowls of chili in the DFW area. Please note there is not a bean to be found on this list. If you do njoy beans with your chili, we invite you to check out another article we wrote some time ago on the subject.  Continue reading

Vivador Jimmy Baldwin’s Tune Named Official Song of Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day (Video)

Texas has its own day to celebrate the almighty chicken fried steak and it is on October 26. The day was created by seventh-generation Texan and local entrepreneur, Jeffrey Yarbrough in 2010. Last year there was an addition of “Peace, Love, and Chicken Fried Steak” by Jimmy Baldwin as the day’s statewide anthem performed and filmed at Allgood Café .

Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day came about when Yarbrough realized one of Texas’ beloved food groups was not receiving the recognition it deserved. With the assistance of several other restaurateurs such as State Representative and Las Casas Restaurant (recently closed) owner Ralph Sheffield, Yarbrough was able to get the resolution signed on May 2, 2010 for Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.
