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.
