For the buzz my vegetarian friends gave about the new VegHead's downtown, I would have thought the place would be packed for lunch on a Friday.
A devoted fan of Saigon Flavors sent me an e-mail recently. The writer had nothing but praise for the little Vietnamese restaurant's new menu of vegan friendly dishes, featuring so-called "mock meats".
My heart smiles when I hear Yogi Bear's voice bellowing, "Hey, hey, Boo-Boo!"

Great inventors rarely receive the recognition they deserve. I'd love to shake hands with the guys who invented duct tape, Weedwhackers and WD-40 - three of the greatest inventions of all time. I'd also like to thank John Montagu, fourth earl of Sandwich and eponymous inventor of the original fast food - the sandwich.
A popular commercial shows a bored-looking lad sitting at the kitchen table with a plate of veggies in front on him. In the distance, a motherly voice tells him he is going to stay at the table until he finishes his vegetables.
I generally avoid giving you the skinny on big-brand, big-budget chain restaurants. But when a company like Joe's Crab Shack stakes claim to a rare strip of waterfront property on River Street and builds a completely new building, I think you deserve a look inside.
For some people, it's about filling an empty void in their gut. For others, it's about the comfort of a familiar friend. For still others, pizza is the common denominator that brings people together over a raucous table of melted cheese and cold beer.
Residents in Bryan County and the surrounding areas who are ready to stock up on fresh veggies, handmade crafts, live plants and more won't have to wait for long as farmers markets in both Pembroke and Richmond Hill open next week.

If I had an entrepreneurial spirit (and budget), there are some natural fragrances that I think should be bottled and sold as perfumes, after-shave lotions and air fresheners. I'm not talking about floral scents like orange blossoms, gardenias or honeysuckle, which already have been marketed. I'm talking about the really good-smelling stuff like frying chicken, piping hot pizza or bacon - especially bacon.
Here in Coastal Georgia, the weather usually is favorable year-round for grilling, but there are exceptions.
Unlike the movies, life is not filled with action-packed drama. But there are dramatic moments that sometimes test our faith and resilience.
The large billboard could be seen half-mile away when traveling north on I-95, near the town of Dunn, N.C. The colorful ad depicted a large dinner plate with two eggs over-easy, several slices of bacon and a generous portion of good ol' Southern grits.

This column, "Around the Table," has celebrated a number of foods the so-called experts tell us are bad. I quietly but forcefully tell these control freaks to leave me alone. I'll eat what Georgia boys have been eating since 1733. I have a wife and a mama; I don't need a nanny.
It's hard to imagine what mealtime would be like without the invention of simple kitchen gadgets.
I like eggs - boiled, poached or fried.
My wife, kids, mama and a mess of doctors have strongly suggested that I try to eat healthy. But eating healthy is harder than most folks think.
