Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: It's Corn Season!

One of my favorite phrases: "put up."

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: It's Corn Season!

A good friend cooks corn like this and the method has become my absolute favorite corn recipe: slather the corn on the cob in butter, put a sprig of oregano and basil on each side, wrap in foil and put on the grill or in the oven (I forget how long it takes, sorry). The herb butter & sweet corn flavor mixture is incredible.

Yeah, the elote at Mas Tacos is A+, as is the elote sans cob at Taco Mamacita.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: It's Corn Season!

Just glad I've got parents that put corn up every year. Still have a bag or two from last year (not on the cob) and they put up 6 dozen on the cob last week. I'm still trying to finish off last years green beans and chow chow. It still amazes me to see chow chow (relish) on a shelf for $6 - $8 in some places.

Grilled on a hot fire suitable for steak. Shuck 'em, brush lightly with olive oil and give them 2 minutes on each of the four sides (I know... they're round... That should say rotate 90 degrees after 2 minutes and keep rotating every 2 minutes until enough kernels on all 4 sides are caramelized to suit you). Good, fresh, tender sweet corn doesn't need butter but a little fresh gound pepper helps.

There's only one way better than that: walk into the cornfield, pull one off the stalk, shuck it and eat it while you stand there!

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: It's Corn Season!

have you noticed that corn side dishes in restaurants tend to be weak? I had 'skillet corn' at a BBQ place recently that was clearly canned white shoepeg that never touched a skillet. the exception to that rule is Mas Tacos, of course. if you dine with me there, you're going to see me eat elote with abandon. hand me a paper towel.

at home it's corn on the cob, plain. if the corn's good, butter isn't needed.

also, a kernel of truth: corn is probably the best food for puns.

Re: “Wholly Chow Does Down-Home Right

I started "Wholly Chow" 2 months ago and can only give this the highest praise for what this has done for me. Not only did I have an abscess on one tooth in the back of my mouth, I also had a cavity developing on the other side and it was painful. Today the abscess and the cavity are completely gone. I am also an asthmatic and had to use my inhalers at least 2x a day. Once I started "Wholly Chow", I went a whole week without using any of them, even when exercising. Now, I don't need to use both everyday as much as I did in the past. It also has decreased my sugar cravings. Realizing that everything works differently for everyone, I can say that I have seen only positive personal results with 'Wholly Chow", and will continue to do it.

Re: “Wholly Chow Does Down-Home Right

These testimonials are hysterical. There must be two Wholly Chows. We've been to the other one. The one where we're the only customers at ten o'clock on a Sat. morning. The one where the dining room with the murals reminds one of the dining room in an old folks home. Will have to try the one y'all go to and report back. Their food sounds yummy.

Re: “Wholly Chow Does Down-Home Right

I work a block away, and have been in for weekday lunch 7 or 8 times, and happily driven from Donelson for weekend brunch 5 or 6 more. Everything my friends, family, and I have ordered was excellent. Good barbecue, killer red beans & rice, and spectacular breakfasts, particularly the Crawfish Gouda Omelet and the Crabcake Benedict. Best under-$20 meals in town, especially on the weekends when Arnold's is closed.

Re: “Inside the Intriguing L&L Restaurant Equipment Store (With Pictures)

Please do not shop at L&L! We took a lot of equipment to them for consignment after closing our business and they "lost" our equipment. We know they sold it and never paid us. This business is shady and they are dishonest. Do not buy or sell there!

Re: “Inside the Intriguing L&L Restaurant Equipment Store (With Pictures)

I was shopping online for some equipment recently and decided to stop by L&L to compare prices. I noticed that L&L had cheaper prices. It also had anything a restaurant owner would ever need. I am glad I stopped by as I got everything the same day for cheaper instead of having to wait the weeks I would have had to wait if I would have bought them online.

Re: “Nashville Food Trucks Book Launch Party this Saturday (Plus a Giveaway)

A falafel recipe from the Pita Pit would be fun!

Re: “Inside the Intriguing L&L Restaurant Equipment Store (With Pictures)

Went there last week for my Deli needs, the sales staff were very professional and courteous, ordered new equipment and purchased 3 used pieces, excellent and working condition. Highly recommend this place to other business owners.

Re: “Coffee, Lunch Cafe Closing for Business This Week — UPDATE

Sorry to hear they are closing but they really limited their customer base by only being open until 5:00 M-F. I live nearby but work south of town and was rarely able to dine there due to the limited hours. And the location is a little too far from the majority of downtown offices for most downtown workers to walk there for lunch.

Re: “Wholly Chow Does Down-Home Right

We have had nothing but goooood experiences with Wholly Chow since they opened up on Sidco Dr. They have catered our lunches on several occasions and are always prompt and have a very professionl presentation.They set up the food and have descriptive labels to describe what we're about to eat. And they have NEVER DISSAPPOINTED!! All items are seasoned well and cooked to perfection. The food is good ole home cookin'. We love it
Thanks Wholly Chow

Re: “Coffee, Lunch Cafe Closing for Business This Week — UPDATE

Damn, that really sucks. Didn't make it over there yet. Looks like I'll have to be getting coffee and lunch there a few times this week before it shuts down.
