When told the Americans were hopelessly surrounded at Bastogne, Belgium, and ordered to surrender on Dec. 22, 1944, the 101st Airborne Division's acting commanding general, Brig. Gen. Anthony McAuliffe responded iconically to the German commander by saying, "Nuts!"
What you use to wash down your meal is as important as the barbecue, seafood or pork fried rice.
That was my friend Mercedes' post to my Foursquare check-in that I was enjoying a baby octopus salad at Ta Ca Sushi & Japanese Fusion.
Only a few desserts excite me - my wife's special banana pudding, blackberry cobbler and fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies. If biscuits are served with a meal, I save mine for later then enjoy it with local honey or cane syrup. That's my typical dessert.
Berry season is my favorite time of year. Even though most berries can be found in groceries all year, they are riper, sweeter and much cheaper during spring, making it the perfect time to increase your consumption of fresh fruit, especially strawberries.
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!"

Here's the line up
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.
I like bologna - the mild sausage made from beef or meat scraps (beef, pork, turkey and/or chicken), not baloney, the mess you hear from TV infomercials about snake-oil pills that increase your memory, help you lose weight, fight bad breath and increase your personal wealth.
Every day, twice a day I check my garden to see if I have any "maters" ripe and ready for picking. In less sophisticated parts of the country, this veggie-fruit is called a tomato, but I live in Georgia, so I call them maters.
It doesn't matter if you spell it donut or doughnut - these little ring-shaped dough cakes are deep-fried and smothered in sweetness. Donuts are a poor man's dessert.
