BRENDA DAVIS: Trunnell’s “Rod-Iron Chef America”

Last Saturday at Trunnell's Farm Market, nine WBKR listeners came to compete for the title ROD-IRON CHEF AMERICA!  The challenge:  to create an original recipe using at least one farm-fresh ingredient available at Trunnell's.  We had a potato dish, Creole corn, a baked peach pancake, sloppy joes and cornbread, Janet's "Just Peachy" Cake and more!  Everything was DELICIOUS!!  Our judges had a difficult time choosing a winner, but did!  And the 2011 ROD-IRON CHEF AMERICA is Brenda Davis from Hartford, who, along with her friend, Sue Austin, cooked up some delicious Chutney Chicken Sandwiches!  And, there's good news for you guys!  She agreed to let us share the recipe . . .

If the Junk Food Tax Kicks In, They’re Comin’ Here First

If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: "Make healthier food cheaper, and this country will start to lose weight." You know what I'm talking about, don't you? The least expensive food at the supermarket, the food toward which a majority of Americans are gravitating in this less-than-ideal economy, is also the least healthy food on the shelves. It's a dual-edged sword.

Big Green Egg Draws Big Green River Appliance Crowd

Thursday afternoon was an unusual afternoon. I was doing a live broadcast from Green River Appliance and Electronics at 14th and Daviess Streets in Owensboro. The temperature was 97 degrees; it felt like 106. And people were flocking to the store to eat HOT food. Outside. While gathered around a grill--a grill whose temperature rose to 450 degrees at one point, I might add. Why? Because Grillmaster Jeff Raymond was cooking on a Big Green Egg--a revolutionary outdoor grill.

At WBKR, We Fry Eggs the Old Fashioned Way…on the Asphalt [VIDEO]

Okay, so the old expression goes something like this, "Why it's hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk." We decided to go with asphalt. It's black and bound to be hotter. And yesterday--Tuesday, July 12th, 2011--the heat index reached 124 degrees. Somebody get the egg timer!

Now Serving: Burgers from a Test Tube

Remember this? "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." How about this one? "Hold the pickles. Hold the lettuce. Special orders don't upset us. All we ask is that you let us serve it your way!" Those iconic jingles for McDonald's (the former) and Burger King (the latter)--created more than 30 years ago--became part of the American lexicon and only intensified the magnitude of the legendary burger chains' popularity.  Now, let's see 'em try to rewrite the legendary jingles and incorporate "test tube."
