With Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest this week, I can’t stop thinking about barbecue!

It may not be Mardi Gras, but beignets and New Orleans fare like Shrimp & Grits and Café Au Lait will be flowing this weekend here in Memphis.

It is a food holiday that is best celebrated by eating waffles of course! These golden-brown, crispy, fluffy breakfast treats are one of my family’s favorite weekend indulgences.

During the season of Lent, the tradition for many is not eat meat on Fridays.  Fish is the go-to.

I never met a meatball I didn’t like.  I love them in a big bowl of spaghetti or covered in marinara and melty cheese in Meatball Sub.
