Re: “Beer tap handles are not items to decorate with


Drop it on the ground and see if Cam shies away from it.

Re: “Beer tap handles are not items to decorate with

It's 2016 now and the brewers don't ask for the taps back. The brands change and they simply don't need them back. I just got a Super Bowl 50 tap. What should I do with it?

Re: “Prepackaged hard-boiled eggs at Trader Joe's?

I'm just lazy. I have been thinking though. What is done to these eggs to make them last so long? I recently boiled some eggs. Yay me!!!!! But the last two spoiled within a week. I had become accustomed to having the store bought boiled eggs last for weeks.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

A couple of things: first, while Marcus Samulesson may be Harlem based, he definitely isn't black, nor does the dishes that he makes, speak for the majority of African-American culture. As for the Neely's, part of what made their show a success (in the beginning) was the fact that they were affectionate. They helped portray a positive image of not only successful marriage in the African-American community, but they also showed that we can own successful food franchises that are not modeled on what another culture dictates to us. As I said, this was part of what made them successful in the beginning. Over time, their dishes changed to be some of the same dishes that are seen on other shows. Yes healthy eating does need to be shown and promoted, but BBQ is a big part of the African-American community. No one complained when Paula Deene cooked dishes with massive amounts of grease or butter in them, so why complain about the Neelys making BBQ? That's what "brought them to the dance" so it only made since to perfect it while occasionally introducing new dishes. As for Sunny Anderson, I thought her show was good in the beginning but the same thing happened to her that happened to the Neely's as far as dishes goes: she changed so much that her dishes no longer even resembled what we actually make in the African-American community. I agree in a sense with what was said about Big Daddy's House, as far as the focus not matching the title of the show, or the drastic changes in dishes from week to week. Despite this, I still couldn't figure out why his show was cancelled.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

I really like the last food network star winner Eddie Jackson but they stuck with him possibly the worst show yet. "BBQ Battle" or something like that has absolutely zero focus. Eddie's got a great personality but apparently his only direction was to be "fired up ex-jock". What a waste.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

As a Magazine Publisher that focuses on Our Black culture, We are the best cooks in the World. Unlike most observations and intents, if these Chef's show productions were focused to the intent of making their shows successful, it would be! Sunny, Aaron, The Neely's etc... We know the Game.. So, they ran a good course, Hang in there Sunny.. We got chu sista... As for Us in general, we must continue to redirect our attention towards our success. Own your networks, your businesses, your talents and platforms.. and change the paradigm....Period!.. W>NF Las Vegas!

Re: “Eat With Your Dollars: Chocolate

My seven year old is requesting that I make him a chocolate and peanut butter smoothie. I have all of my ingredients accounted for except for the chocolate part. The recipes I've found use cocoa powder. Do you have a recommendation for this?

PS... your book is fantastic! I'm not even half way through, and I've learned so much already!

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

Tina: I'm black and grew up poor. There is a BIG difference between the wealth of food that comes from African-American culture and people ... and ramen noodles and hot dogs. Or BBQ spaghetti, whatever that is.

Very tasty! I think what made it even better was that I used lemon basil, not just regular basil.

Re: “Wake and bake: How to cook with cannabis

I want to share the amazing results with Cannabis oil cancer miracle cure. My wife just recovered from breast cancer just 19 weeks of using it. She have being having this breast cancer on her left side which she have been battling for over 3 years. More importantly, she is no longer having to deal with the embarrassment and annoyance of Chemo, Radiations and those crazy cancer drugs which is been recommended by oncologist nor daily fatigue. If you have been in the situation, you will know what it means to be free indeed.

Thanks to Dr. Thomas and Mr. Rick Simpson. Save yourself, and your family members and friends by helping them out with this information for better understanding.

Re: “Checking in at Heist Brewery

I hope that CL wil send their food critic to Heist in the near future as they have hired a new executive chef. I'm looking forward to trying some of her takes on that classic Twisted menu.
