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!

Chad’s Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

I love traditional Thanksgiving foods.  Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, dumplings.  In fact, my mother and aunt share a dumpling recipe that is ridiculous and I look forward to eating it every year.  Dough + salt + chicken= happiness and high cholesterol.  But my absolute FAVORITE Thanksgiving food is Sweet Potato Casserole.  It is one part side order and one part dessert.  It is to food what the Snuggie is to the coach potato.  Pure, unadulterated comfort and bliss.  And, I am about to make you VERY thankful this holiday season.  Here's the recipe . . .

Hold the (shut down of) the presses!!!

I have to say, while I was shocked about the possibility of Twinkies going away, I was more worried about another iconic food item from the line that could be going away as well: Wonderbread!

However, this could become less of a concern after the latest news! At a hearing today, Hostess and the union agreed to sit down to talk over their differences

Smartphones and Social Media Makes for an Easier Drive-Thru Wait

The voice coming through the menu board said, "That'll be about a 7 to 10 minute wait." In the past, I would have said, "Sorry, Charlie." But not anymore.

So Long, Twinkies: Hostess Closes Its Doors

I never realized that the three bigs of the snack cake world were ladies--Hostess, Dolly Madison, and Little Debbie. Hardly relevant now, as the Hostess with the mostest (fame, icon status) is no longer.
