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.
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.
