Memorial Day officially kicks off grilling season, so as you get your grill scrubbed and ready to go another round, here are some tips to make steaks coming off your grill this summer the best ever.

Street food is growing in cities across the country, and has now been changed to reflect the way America eats, according to a new survey from the Center for Culinary Excellence and Packaged Facts. In larger cities, you’ll find cuisine with global gourmet flavors, such as Indian wraps, Salvadorian pupusas, and arepas from Venezuela. But in Chattanooga, all we have are hot dogs, to the best of my knowledge.

I’ve always been interesting in gardening.

I recently read an article at on food of the future. And, from what I read, it sounds tasteless and rather frightening. Most have heard that nanobytes are the wave of the future. Now, the website is reporting that we may be eating them:

After my Easter dinner that I spent two days cooking, I told my daughter I didn’t think I’d be making any more holiday meals. Why, she asked? “You’re so good at it,” she remarked.

So, I made my fourth trip to Tunica, Mississippi, recently to experience Fitzgerald’s Casino and Hotel for the first time.

McCormick's has a new invention, McCormick Recipe Inspirations. It's a kit of spices that comes with a recipe card attached to the back. The kit contains all the spices in the exact amount you'll need for making the dish you select.

I recently received a press release about banning salt from cooking at New York restaurants. There’s a bill being introduced in the state’s legislature to do so, and some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at the bill.

It's hard to believe I've reached this milestone in my life. I'm now a mother-in-law, with a boy in the family to call my own. My oldest of three daughters married a couple of weeks ago at Miller Plaza.

It’s a given that certain wines go with certain foods, but what about champagne? We most often buy a bottle for celebratory occasions, but more and more, I’m seeing people enjoy it in for an afternoon cocktail as well as with dinner instead of a glass of wine.

A few times a year, I like to take a drive out of town for a meal.

Easter will be celebrated in grand style at area restaurants on April 4. Here are a few suggestions in case you’re looking to eat out:

I think I’ve heard it all. Weight Watchers and McDonalds plan to team up, promoting their Filet-O-Fish, Chicken McNuggets and Sweet Chili Seared Chicken Wrap. Let me say first that this is happening in New Zealand, but my best guess is that it will take wing and appear in the U.S. before long. I mean, who wouldn’t love to scarf down a Filet-O-Fish for just 6 1/2 Weight Watchers points?

Target just announced on their Web site that it’s eliminated all farmed salmon from its shelves nationwide. In its place, all salmon sold by Target brands will be wild-caught Alaskan salmon. Well, it’s a shame that we don’t have a Super Target in our area selling wild salmon. But you can get it at most every grocery store in town. Just watch the labels.
