Whatever Happened to Doodads?

When I was growing up, it was pretty much a tradition for my mom and dad to invite a bunch of people over to the house after church on Sunday night. And, invariably, there would be a big bowl of Doodads sitting amongst the sandwiches, chips, and dips that constituted "The Spread."

Tin Man Brewing Co. – A True Class Act for Evansville [Review]

Let’s just get this out of the way right now: it is a beautiful thing when someone rises up with enough guts and vision to not only bring their labor of love to fruition, but in seeing it through, they give something positive back to a community of people – or even the world

A Really Good Fruitcake Recipe

Yes, you read that right. I have a fruitcake recipe that will make you re-think all those forgotten fruitcakes you might have used as door stop or a paper weight in the past.

A couple of years ago around Christmas, my Dad got a wild hair and he decided to make his grandmother's (my Mamaw Brown's) no-bake fruitcake. I know, who actually likes fruitcake? To be honest, your run of the mill fruitcake isn't that bad. But this recipe is so different and it is delicious!

Whiskey Business: Does Bourbon Really Get Better With Age?

I used to drink bourbon. In fact, it's the first alcohol thing I drank. I remember thinking, how could anyone drink this sh ... stuff. In 1970, a friend of mine Jim Miller, introduced me to Kentucky's fine bourbon, Maker's Mark. Now, that was some good sh .. stuff.

Mike Adams, writing for GuySpeed, says if the majority of top-shelf whiskeys require a 10-20 year aging process, then how are those distilleries just getting started in the business able to market and distribute a brand without waiting decades for their first batch to mature?

Dave’s Favorite Seasonal Beverage…Just Skim Off the Egg Whites

I think many of us have weighed in on Black Friday--the official kick-off of the Christmas season--beginning, for many retail outfits, on Thanksgiving evening. But, let's face it, Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season.

My Awesome-Terrible Lorrie Morgan Show Photos [GALLERY]

It's a Christmas tradition for Chad, Dave and I to broadcast live from Gaylord Opryland Resort. I'll be honest, being here really kicks me into the Holiday Spirit every year! We also always go to the dinner show at the resort. For the last few years Louise Mandrell, but this year, Lorrie Morgan is here for her Enchanted Christmas Dinner & Show. Dinner was great, the show was great and you should check it out!

I knew that y'all would want to see pictures, so I took lots for you to check out! Bad thing is I'm a terrible photographer, sorry! So, look if you must, but don't expect greatness!

Mirko Pasta Now Open in Owensboro

I love food.  I especially love Italian food.  And I love any chance I get to eat somewhere new.  So, Friday night, I dropped by the brand new Mirko Pasta location at Wesleyan Park Plaza here in Owensboro to give it a try.  Oh my goodness.  I love pasta anyway.  But at Mirko all the pastas and sauces are handmade.  I had apple, sage and sausage ravioli with pesto sauce and it was ridonkulous!   In fact, I'm not sure how you say "ridonkulous" in Italian, but I may have to figure it out now .  So, what is Mirko Pasta and where did it come from?  Honestly, before the sign went up at the Owensboro location, I had never even heard of it.  So, I did some digging and found out a little history about Mirko.  Check it out!

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?

The closer we get to the Holidays (and how much closer can we get to Thanksgiving???), the thought of all of the different foods and meal traditions my friends and family have start to come to mind. Several of my friends have the normal traditions (turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc) but a few have different tastes shall we say
