Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.

29-95: The post that everyone's talking about this week is Chris Reid's well-informed and well-reasoned rebuttal of KHOU's highly prejudicial piece on the sanitation levels in Houston taco trucks. Very much worth a read.

Robb Walsh: Even the most seasoned BBQ expert can have an off day, as Robb demonstrates in his post aptly titled "A BBQ Disaster Narrowly Averted."

Dirty Kitchen Adventures: Brownies baked in a cast-iron skillet? Why not? Jen further demonstrates why a good, well-seasoned cast-iron might be the most important cooking vessel in your kitchen.

Houston Wok: David is back from his month-long hiatus with a recipe for mango stir-fry chicken that sounds perfect for the summer months.

Hungry In Houston: Last but not least, Stef discovers excellent tacos and snowcones at what might be Houston's most adorable taco stand: Ruby's Taqueria. We'll be headed there this weekend.

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.
