The funniest food-related street names in America

Street names across the U.S. have become pretty predictable. You probably know people who live on a Pine, Maple, or Main Street. Chances are even greater that you know someone who lives on a Washington street or avenue (there are currently 4,974 streets with that name in the country), or a Second Steet (currently 10,866 of those!).

If you’re still unsure, know that you could actually use this recipe to make a killer key lime pie, just by swapping out the fruit. If you’re a fan…

An Appetite for a Higher Education Course in Barbecue

The south has given us seersucker, sweet tea and a very, very passive aggressive way to address our adversaries. Bless your heart.  But even with that said, the sauciest thing to come out of the South is barbecue. Barbecue is a big deal in the south. If you hail from Texas, North Carolina, Kentucky or anywhere in between, you have a more refined appreciation for the flavors of your favorite cuts of ‘cue than do your northern neighbors. You were raised with it, and you probably know between 10 to 20 local pit masters you can call by their first name. But now these southern secrets are being shared. According to Southern Living, two faculty members at Wofford College—a small liberal arts school located in Spartanburg, in upstate South Carolina—developed a course that teaches students this fine southern art. The month-long course was part of the college’s Interim program, that…
