With spring underway and summer break on the horizon, many Texas families are looking for ways to get outside and connect with nature. In an effort to bring new fishing experiences to families in urban centers, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) will begin stocking thousands of catfish at 18 Neighborhood Fishin’ lakes and ponds across the state starting April 17-20.

Each of the lakes will receive continuous stockings of channel catfish every few weeks through early November – with a brief pause during the heat of August – to ensure there is plenty of time for families looking to spend quality time together outdoors. Continue reading

Eat Me: Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ at Pho Pasteur

There are so many wonderful dishes to be found at the Richardson pho staple restaurant, Pho Pasteur. You will certainly enjoy the bun mang vit, duck soup to you and me, or the grilled pork chop adorned with a fried egg. But today we wish to order the Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ, or simply a Cornish hen and rice.

The tiny hen is plump with juicy meat, and a deliciously crisped outer layer that quickly relents with each bite. This dish pairs perfectly with the fresh spring rolls.   Continue reading

2018 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.

One of our favorite’s comes from Graham Dodds and I am sure we will be tasting his new bowl of red at his new post as Exec chef at the Statler Hotel.

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

Cole, who continues to prep for the highly-anticipated follow up project to the critically-acclaimed, platinum-certified album 4 Your Eyez Only. New additions to the 2018 lineup include two of the most sought-after acts in hip-hop today, both of whom are Grammy-nominated, as well – Atlanta-based trap-rappers Migos, whose recently released Culture II album just hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and Bronx-born Cardi B, who continues to dominate the radio charts this year after debuting her No. 1 smash hit “Bodak Yellow” in late 2017. With “Bodak Yellow”, Cardi B is the first woman rapper to score an unassisted No. 1 hit on the Billboard 100 charts since Lauryn Hill did the same nearly two decades ago. Cardi B is also featured on the debut single “Motorsport” from Migos’ recent album. Continue reading
