I'm staying in Lafayette this weekend for Festival and had a blast Friday night. I'm headed back tonight and I'll need to pay more attention as to whom the various vendors are because I had some good grub last night, which included an Italian cucumber and tomato salad, fried gator, shrimp poboy, shr...

Garlic, corn, mushrooms, sausage, asparagus are already on their way. I'm looking for something different for my contribution that would be a hit. For i...

I had reason to use a stadium blanket which comes in a case so that you can use it as a seat cushion with the blanket in it. Anyway, I'm taking out the blanket and wrapped inside it is an opened 750ml bottle of my buddy Jim Beam.
There's a couple of issues however. One is that it's a plastic bot...

When you make a whole chicken, would you suggest to leave those two clumps of fat just inside the rear cavity, or do you recommend taking them out. I usually rip them out, but I'm wondering if there's any basting that happens, although with the breast up, there really isn't much meat to baste. Do th...
