Every week, I see all kinds of food and restaurant related articles. These are my favorites that made the cut!

Well-done Meat May be Bad for Your Blood Pressure - via upi.com

I've never liked well done meat, for any reason. I've always thought anything over medium is over done. For me, the meat gets dried out and all of the flavor cooks out after that. Now there it looks like there is some science to back that up!



Alton Brown's Atlanta - via Garden & Gun

I've been to Atlanta once. Just passing through for work, I liked what I saw. Unfortunately back then, I didn't have much time to stop and explore. Now if I ever get a chance to go back, I can use Alton Brown as my guide! I'm not sure that I would follow his exact schedule, but everything from the apple fritter, to the burger, to the

Linguine and Red Clam Sauce

Best Houston Coffee Shops

Anyone who knows me really well, knows that I drink a lot of coffee. So it seems fitting to compile a list of my favorite coffee shops around Houston. This list was surprisingly hard to make. There are so many great places to get a cup of coffee in this city, that limiting it to 10 meant leaving out some of those great places. Why 10? Well, a Top 10 list seems pretty standard, and I've already started a trend with the Houston Essential Restaurants 2016 post!

To be a great coffee shop is pretty simple. Good music, WiFi, comfy chairs are a plus, but overall good coffee! Oh and one more thing, it has to be a Houston original.
