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.

Guns and Tacos: Jay discovers one of the most charming things about Alma Latina besides the soulful food: bullet holes in the windows.

Blue Jean Gourmet: For a complete change of pace, read Nishta's startlingly moving post that starts out innocently enough about rice and beans. If you're not crying at the end, you have no soul.
H-Town Chow Down: Everyone in town has been raving about the amazing burger that Tesar's is serving in The Woodlands, including H-Town. But we have to admit we're skeptical of a burger with such a high meat-to-everything-else ratio...
Bite Me Houston: Can a chain restaurant that also doubles as a gas station and convenience store have some of the best barbecue in Texas? Bite Me investigates Rudy's in far north Houston to find out.
Houston Foodie: J.C. tries real Kobe beef for the first time -- served in town at Vic & Anthony's -- and finds that this "real delicacy" is the real thing, and totally worth the cost.

And on the national scene...

Homesick Texan: Our favorite ex-pat Texan shares a recipe for ginger crinkles that are guaranteed to warm the heart and soul.

Pinch My Salt: Stringing popcorn for Christmas tree garlands this year? Make some delicious homemade kettle corn that you can munch on while you sacrifice the boring microwave stuff to the tinsel gods.

Habeas Brulee: This recipe for pecan mole isn't just seasonal and gorgeous, it makes enough sauce to feed an army -- and we can think of plenty of uses for it, too.

Su Good Sweets: At risk of angering millions of Southerners, Su Good Sweets takes on the red velvet cake and fancies it up with...beets?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
