Re: “Rock and Rye knocks colds out

I am in my early fifties. When I was younger I would caught a cold easy and my doctor was an old fashion one. He would have my mom give me R&R when every I had a bad cough mix with honey and lemon. A teaspoon now a tablespoon. And it WORKED. To this day that is all I use instead of meditations that people end up addicted to and before those say anything a bout R&R being alcohol. While it's true, it has other ingredients in it. And before you ask the next question no I don't drink and never have. This is the only thing that I take that has alcohol in it. May we need to get back to the home remedies again. They do work even if they sound crazy plus get essential oils also help too.

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

The Food Network & Cooking Channel both suck because they have changed from shows that teach us how to cook & have tried to become entertainment & they have failed at both. Gone are the days of Laura Calder (French Food at Home), Easy Chinese, 30 Minute Meals, etc.. They have been replaced by ex-celebrities that know less about cooking than the average Joe or Jane or over the top shows that make meals with so many expensive ingredients that most people couldn't afford to make them.

Re: “Rock and Rye knocks colds out

As a child I had asthma and bronchitis all the time and when it was really bad my mom would heat up rock and rye until it was really hot and would pour it into a shot glass and make me drink it. I would cry and it would burn going down but it would loosen up all the yucky flemm. Even now and then I buy a bottle of R&R and think about mom.

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

The Neely's?? What a display of pure manure. So much crap to pile on there mediocre recipes. I did love Aaron McCargo & had high hopes for him but if FN wanted him, they would have worked him in anywhere. I was excited with Eddie, they didn't do anything to glorify his assesets or smile, How Sunny Anderson is still on FN is shocking to me. Her recipes are from a $1 store cookbook. Her personality flips & flops depending on the guest. She is fake to me. Does anyone else notice that when Marcella is gone that Katie doesn't really like Sunny. ..The men play the go between. I do know ya'll are hating on Katie to much.. she is the real deal..Cute as a bug & beautiful..She's a country girl & pure as gold..Back off my Katie!!

Kindred is one of our favorite dining spots in Davidson and we are looking forward to their new creation Hello Sailor in the former Rusty Rudder Location! I'm sure it will be our new favorite lake destination. The Heavenly Hoagie - Mooresville

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

What is wrong with people besides the fact they are ignorant. The Neeley's show was great. Their personal life was none of my business. Big Daddy's recipes are fantastic. It is amazing what jealousy brings out in people. I am always excited to see an African-American that steps up to the challenge to make life better for themselves and their family. Please do not think I do not know what I am talkin about. I am Caucasian and from Alabama. I know how some of these precious people have been treated. By the way I hate to shock you to the point of a stroke. Did you know all of us have some African-American and Caucasian in our blood line. The plantation "masters" were not always nice. They were jerks.
Know what I mean.
Better get with some of that soul food. It might give you a better disposition. Might also teach you to talk without using bad language.
Give me a break, Paula Deen had to leave because she said something that comes natural to her generation. By the way, check out the times she had wonderful people on her show that you now call names. Hope you have ask God to forgive you. You think it is "Hot" in their kitchen.

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

Geez, tough crowd! I came across this article while searching for "repurposing beer tap handle" ideas for a Christmas present I'm considering making for a craft beer lover. (For example, using a favorite liquor/bottle to create a personalized lamp. Though there are lots of repurposed lamps for sale that look more like they're meant for a college dorm, repurposing anything can be very cool, artful, even profitable, if you pay attention to the details.) OK, so anyway, I found this article interesting, and I'm certain there is validity regarding the topic. Regardless, I appreciated the insight - as sometimes it's simply a matter of reading an article like this for folks to be encouraged to behave accordingly. I for one, value understanding more about those cool, hip, "decorations" used to pour my favorite brews. To the person who asked what to do with one he has?? If it doesn't need to be returned to its rightful owner, I'd be happy to create something cool with it. ;)

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!
