    With a trio of distinct, tasty products, three local military veterans have built businesses in the years after serving their country. This Father's Day, we'd like to honor these dads and the products - pizza, hot sauce and soda pop - that paved the way for their new careers. Pizza,...

  • Want great barbecue sauce? Learn the basic building blocks

    Updated: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    Barbecue sauce is a very personal thing. For some, it means a thick, sweet red sauce. For others, it is mustard-based. For those who grew up in North Carolina like I did, it's vinegar-based. Regional differences aside, these days barbecue sauces are made from everything from...

  • Give Dad what he really wants - a seriously robust sandwich

    Updated: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    You know what dad really wants for Father's Day? A sandwich. No, seriously. Guys generally are not complex creatures. And they don't tend to ask for much. The occasional electronic gizmo (which they'd rather pick out for themselves). Maybe tickets to a sports game. Perhaps somebody...

  • Man enough to get into the kitchen? These books aim to help

    By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press -
    Published: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    Unmanly men need not apply. Or maybe I'm being overly sensitive. Because just in time for Father's Day, there's a whole crop of new cookbooks aimed at guys, and I don't feel nearly manly enough to cook from them. I suspect that's kind of the point. Not to make me feel badly, but...

  • Stuff it! Avocados, that is. Stuff them with a quick chili

    By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press -
    Published: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    There's no real shocker here - avocado pairs delightfully with a rich and meaty chili. But I decided to pair them in a fresh way that is ideal for summer grilling season. Rather than simply whip up a pot of chili and scatter some diced avocado over it, I decided to spoon mounds of...

  • Pigs get off the hook for these summer-friendly grilled ribs

    Updated: Tue, Jun 16, 2015

    We tend to think of beef short ribs as a winter dish, something that simmers long and slow in a Dutch oven until fall-apart tender. But we decided these ribs deserved a shot at some summer sun, too. After all, why should pork ribs get all the attention when the weather gets warm? We...
