Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to stop eating turkey. In fact, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company would argue the opposite—and then they’d partner with one of Dallas’s best chefs to put some turkey on a pizza.
Created by Chef Kent Rathbun, the Wild Turkey Pizza is topped with One90 smoked turkey, gruyére cheese, Alfredo sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, spinach and prosciutto, and it’s served with a side cranberry sauce. It tastes like a delicious holiday plate, but in this case, the plate is a pizza—and therefore better. Continue reading

Black-eyed peas have long been a traditional New Years dish with the thought that they bring the eater good luck. The tradition dates back to the Civil War, when Union troops, especially in areas targeted by General William Tecumseh Sherman, typically stripped the countryside of all stored food, crops, and livestock, and destroyed whatever they could not carry away.

In addition to your black-eyed peas, you can also find a great chicken fried steak, catfish, meatloaf and other hearty dishes to start your year off right. Continue reading
