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.
Chili Bob's Houston Eats: There's a new Ethiopian restaurant in town...finally. Not that I don't love Blue Nile and Addis Ababa, but it's so nice to see some healthy competition and another option in a cuisine which is sorely underrepresented in Houston. Bruce hits it up and gives us a play-by-play of his amazing-looking meal (as well as some helpful pointers on what not to do/order).
Dr. Ricky: I'll just let the opening paragraph of this great post speak for itself:
Sometimes, I wonder why anyone would buy those bottled jams in the supermarket during the summer. We have an abundance of cheap fruit, and it's so easy to make at home - they taste superior as well. Problem is, preservation.

SHOW ME HOW
Fork and Cork: I somehow missed the [somewhat horrifying] news that the KFC Double Down gave birth to at least one competitor: the Doublicious. Luckily, Ken Hoffman was there to pick up the slack.
Great Food Houston: Our own Ruthie Johnson is in the middle of planning her wedding, and currently finds herself at one of the truly enjoyable points along the planning timeline: cake tasting.
Bread and Courage: One way to enjoy the summer and keep cool at the same time: homemade ceviche. If you're worried about handling and eating raw fish, don't fret. Bread and Courage will guide you with this wonderful post.
Brewtiful: Would a Shiner Bock by any other name taste as sweet? That's the question Cathy asks in her latest beer post: What's in a name?
