New Orleans: Top Ten Vegetarian Eats

No other city in America calls you to the table like New Orleans—the city lives and breathes great food and without question, the Big Easy offers my favorite destination dining in the entire US of A. Though I will be the first to rave about the oysters and po’ boys, duck sausage gumbo and the…

Beverly Joubert’s Granola Recipe

Tracking lions all day and all night is tough work, with long hours, little sleep, and great physical effort. “Dereck and I almost have to be like athletes,” says Beverly Joubert, who has spent most of her life dedicated to the high adrenalin sport of wildlife photography. With such a busy life and travel schedule,…

The Other MacDonalds

I never tasted crushed popcorn dust atop sweet and salty corn soup or whisky foam or caramelized grapefruit—until I came to Skye. Arriving in Scotland, I expected haggis and herring, potatoes and porridge—but when I licked my first spoon of morning porridge at Kinloch Lodge, I was hit with the most wonderful brown sugar and…

The Alberta Story: Marv’s Classic Soda Shop

I was hoping to find cowboys on the Cowboy Trail but instead I met Elvis. When I poked my head into the old doorway, I was greeted by Marvin Garriott, guitar in hand, swinging to his own jaunty cover of “That’s Alright”. “That was the first Rock ‘n Roll song,” he told me after playing…

Blue Bell Ice Cream

What’s the best job in the world? (Well, besides mine?) How about inventing new ice cream flavors for Blue Bell?

The World’s Best Onion Rings

Texas is the land of many superlatives—the biggest state in America (Alaska goes unacknowledged down here) and biggest steaks (72 oz!). I’ve also noticed that Texans speak in superlatives. Everything is best in Texas, and frankly, that’s not a bad attitude to have, as long as you’re Texan. Still, I grew dubious and critical when…

Top 10 Must-Have Montana Meals

Don’t tell me what a place is like—just show me the food. Good food reveals a lot about any destination and nowhere is that more true than good ol’ Montana. Driving from the top of the state down to its southernmost corner, I discovered Montana’s wintertime cuisine has as much heart as the sky is…

Real Chinese Food #RTW

Not once while I was in China did I eat rice. Perhaps I was ordering wrong but I also don’t remember seeing it on any menus. Instead, I was fed a steady diet of delicate dumplings and noodles so long it took me ten seconds to slurp a single spoonful. Chinese food may have already…

Rainbow-Flavored

When you can’t make up your mind, try them all. This is my rule with most good food, such as doughnuts, pizza, M&Ms, cupcakes, jelly beans, and chocolate truffles. Endless choice plagues America with endless indecision, be they in the half-mile long grocery aisle offering up several hundred varieties of the same food, or in…

Sunday Muddy Sunday

One week in Hawaii and I’m already blogging on island time–the calendar might say Thursday but I’m still stuck on last Sunday, just like some of the mud is still stuck in my ear from my exploits on that day of rest. It all started so innocently–I had finally arrived in Hawaii, thrilled to explore…
