Sampler Plate: This Week in Food Blogs
Houston Burgers: This burger blog has been dormant for a few months, but a brand-new post popped up in my Google Reader today -- and just in time for baseball season. This week, Darrell reviewed the new deep-fried mac 'n' cheese burger at Minute Maid Park, which contains the same deep-fried mac 'n' cheese chef Bryan Caswell serves at Reef. (You'll remember that the chef has a partnership with the baseball team.)
The Mija Chronicles: If you're going to make hot sauce at home, you'll need something to cool your tongue off afterward. So make this at home, too: Lesley's recipe for a refreshing strawberry-lime agua fresca, which is perfect for the hot and muggy weather.
Jack Around: If you prefer something stronger, grab a beer. An organic beer. Because -- after all, as Jack reminds us -- it's Organic Beer Month, and he's got a few good suggestions for you.
