Each week, we put together a sampler plate of the most interesting links from both local and national food blogs. Know a blog we should be paying particular attention to? Leave the address in the comments section below.
Hungry In Houston: A newcomer to the local food blog scene, this husband-and-wife duo shares recipes and vibrant food photos from their adventures. We enjoyed their recent post on how to keep your burgers from drying out while they're on the grill. Good thing to know for Super Bowl time...
Houston Foodie: After a long hiatus, Ruggles Grill finally reopened this month. Chris gives its new, slow food-inspired menu a shot and finds that it manages to retain some of the old Ruggles flavor in a new, exciting way.
H Town Chow Down: Albert "tests the hype" by trying the ribs at Jasper's -- the Dallas transplant in The Woodlands -- for the first time. No offense to The Woodlands, but good barbecue definitely won't be found in an upscale Dallas interloper. We've enjoyed Jasper's food otherwise, however.
Bakin 'n' Bacon: There's no denying that fernet branca is of the devil. But Plinio tries to soften it a little by making it into an ice cream, with surprisingly delicious results.
Dude, You Going To Eat That?: Ever heard of an anti-griddle? Get ready for some dry ice, some mango puree and some science.
Guns and Tacos: You know what your iPhone was missing? Some taco apps. Jay's here to guide you.
