Our “lazy days of summer” are numbered. Soon we’ll be back to our deadlines, schedules and school. Again, we have the dilemma of what to make for dinner when everyone in the family is running in different directions. Here's a suggestion: Gourmet Flatbreads. Whether you call them flatbread or pizza, they’re delicious, easy and fast. Bake them in the oven or throw them on the grill -- either way, they're done in minutes. Be original and think outside the pizza “box” or the lunch “box.” You can create your own signature flatbread just by varying the crust, sauce and toppings.

This weekend, celebrate July 4th with the All-American Hot Dog. Top it, as you like it, with mustard and relish, or “go global” with these unusual, yet exotically delicious, toppings.
THE OLÉ OLÉ DOG: Wrap an Applegate Natural Uncured Beef Hot Dog in a flour tortilla and top it with Xochitl Salsa, creamy guacamole, chopped red onion, and crumbled queso blanco.

As March rolls in, we know that spring is just around the corner. We can almost taste it: fresh herbs, crisp vegetables, and lots and lots of green. Fresh asparagus is always associated with the spring season. Asparagus, though we love you, we have other natural beauties at Eddie's that will just "wow" you, making vegetables the main attraction at your table.

As 2016 begins, we look back and reflect over the past year. A historian may recount the political events of the year. A designer may look back at style trends. But an epicurean will relive the memorable flavors, dishes and "bites" of the year.
Sit back and re-experience those aromas, tastes and textures of your favorite dishes of 2015. What new foods did you discover? What foods did you try that you would never have eaten five years ago?

As the saying goes, "Don't sweat the small stuff." Well, you don't have to sweat the holidays, either. You aren't alone if you get stressed out by just thinking about all you have to do for holiday entertaining. Remember, it's not just planning for Thanksgiving, Chanukah or Christmas dinner. It's planning for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you have out-of-town guests for the weekend.

Grilling can be an easy and fun way to cook food, but that doesn't mean your approach has to be simple. With just a little extra effort, you can add great flavor to everything you grill. Here are some delicious ways to maximize flavor as you grill.
RUBS: Spice blends that are applied directly on the surface of meats, fish and poultry. Be careful to check the salt content of the rub, so you can estimate how much to apply. The more you add, the more flavor goes on your product. Try local favorites Rick’s Ragin’ Island Jerk Rub or Todd’s Bayou Dirt.
