I'm generally not a food snob and enjoy pretty much anything, but there are a few things I see friends/family do when cooking that bother me way too much. I never say anything, but I'm sure thinking it.
Some of mine:

One of my 5 year old twins seems to be musically inclined (sings all the time, picks up my guitar, always wants Musical toys, etc.) I don't want to push anything on him, but how should I support him at this age?

| Food and Drink Board|| FDB thought on the movie "Chef"? - CajunAlum Tiger Fan on 11/17/14 at 11:10 am|
Any of you see Chef? I caught it on a flight a few months ago and watched it again this weekend. I think its a great movie for folks who enjoy cooking and good food or work in the industry. The cast and soundtrack were great and New Orleans played a nice backdrop/role. Aaron Franklin even had a ...

My son's U6 rec league team didn't have a coach and the league asked parents if they could coach, so even though I didn't play soccer (wasn't offered in my small town at the time), I volunteered.

Is there a butcher shop in the area where I can get beef ribs to smoke? I'm not talking about the trimmed bones they sell at Albertson's as beef ribs, but a Flintstones style hunk of beef on a handle!
