Over the past couple of years, the U.S. Government has been cozying up to Cuba, in an attempt to "reset" a relationship that has been pretty chilly since the late 1950s.  Yesterday, for the first time in decades, a regularly-scheduled commercial flight left the United...

We were traveling Thanksgiving week, and had a layover in Chicago.  Hungry, thirsty, and looking for a quick snack before boarding our next flight, we found Tortas Frontera, by Chef Rick Bayless, and decided to stop in for a bit of guacamole and a couple of margaritas....

Recently we were in Newport, RI for a little over a week.  We've been to Newport over a dozen times at this point--we got engaged here, we got married here, etc.  We like it up here.  A lot.  We've been to all sorts of restaurants in and around Newport--good, bad, and...

When searching for wine to drink with Thanksgiving dinner, we ran into a couple of real treats:  a bottle of 1989 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet, along with a bottle of 1996 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet sitting together on the shelf of the local wine store.  Th...

We at FoodieDFW love Thanksgiving!  Like a lot!!  We love the pies, the rolls, the sides, the stuffing.  We LOVE the secret family recipe cranberry relish!  Pretty much everything.  Except for the traditional turkey.  Neither of us are huge fans, as it usually turns ou...

As I sit watching episode 2 of The Crown on Netflix, where King George VI passes, and Princess Elizabeth becomes the new monarch, I have a moment to reflect upon life.  As a student of history, I have always been fascinated with the life and career of Winston Churchill...

Enjoyed with a nice chicken truffle risotto on a low-key Sunday night.  Spicebox, plum and bright cherry on the nose. Cherry cola, with jammy plums and figs on the palate. Bright, not overly heavy, still quite astringent near the end of the palate. Not terribly tannic,...

It was a beautiful day out so we decided to give Shake Shack a try, since the outdoor space is full of adirondack chairs, regular tables, benches, and corn hole. Very dog friendly too!  And, since they've been open for a few weeks, we figured they had worked the kinks...
