Sweet vs. Savory - Sweet Strikes Again!

I'm not that picky an eater, but I do hold a strong principle on Sweet vs. Savory. This is especially true for cornbread - I like it salty/savory, so I'm always disappointed when I get a piece of cornbread masquerading as dessert. The offending piece I had at lunch is shown below, and the establishment that served it shall remain anonymous.

Really though, the place advertised "homemade SKILLET cornbread," so that had me hungry .. and then let down.  Why do people sweeten things that taste better savory? Perhaps it's the "Corn-Syrupization" of our food and taste buds. I've found this to be true when ordering/buying pasta salad (should be tart from vinegar-based dressing), potato salad (should be tart, if white vinegar-based, or salty/mustardy if Southern) and indeed, cornbread.

Perhaps I'll become an eccentric who assumes they can taste-test everything before comitting to it. Wish me luck on future deli/restaurant visits!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
