If you catch a glimpse of the Grilled Glazer from far away, it might appear to be a normal chicken sandwich. Upon closer inspection, though, and it's pretty clear that this is no ordinary meal.
The “Walking Taco” is all about convenience. Order up a plate of these babies at Henry T’s and forget about the to-go box.
Black Friday, Cyber Monday ― blech! Call me a Grinch if you want, but I hate the mall. I'd much rather do my holiday shopping at the grocery store.
Ginger is a spicy root that is small but mighty — not just in size but in both flavor and health benefits.

Next weekend, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County will host its 20th annual Gingerbread Festival and Auction. More than 100 gingerbread houses, created by both adult and children volunteers, will be on display from Dec. 4 to Dec. 7.
Amidst the flurry of sugar cookies and peanut butter balls that get made over the holiday season, I always find a few moments to sneak in a batch of what is perhaps my favorite Christmas candy of all: candied orange peels.
Not overly moist or crumbly as most pumpkin bread, this one is firm and slightly dense; studded with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, it’s the perfect in-car take-along snack that won’t leave crumbs in the upholstery as you head over the river and through the woods.
Just when we thought pizza couldn't get any more carb-heavy, along comes The Spud at Limestone Pizza.
Looking to dabble in a little food espionage? The Blissful Swiss at Eats is essentially a Reuben sandwich masquerading as a hot dog, and a tasty one at that. It's missing the rye bread (who eats a hot dog on rye?) and of course, the corned beef, but still calls to mind the classic sandwich.
While most folks still enjoy a classic Thanksgiving meal, many others will want to try something new this holiday season.

Now that fall has officially hit its stride, the winter months aren’t far off. It may be time, then — for those of you who like to break out the twinkle lights and holiday jams before Thanksgiving — to once again enjoy that favorite wintertime drink, hot chocolate.
