I made these cookies for our Star Christmas party and so many people wanted the recipe I decided to share it in the paper. They are so delicious it is hard to eat just one. I have been making these at Christmas time for many years. They are quick and easy and so yummy! Mound […]

Hoggs-N-Chicks 8817 Hwy. 6 South, Suite 900 Missouri City, TX 77459 Cuisine: American Grill with a fine food twist The title on the menu describes this place perfectly as “A Fine Food Shack.”  Owned by the same people who own Aura Restaurant, the gourmet influence is apparent in the menu.  A casual walk-in place where […]

Well folks, Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s the time of year when we think about tried and true family recipes; the dish that everybody requests year after year because it is so good! The most requested side dish in my family is, hands down, my mom’s Yam Bake. What makes it so scrumptious is the […]

Los Gallitos Mexican Cafe 3385 S. Hwy. 6 Sugar Land, TX 77478 Cuisine:  Tex-Mex With so many Mexican food restaurants around and having heard nothing about this place, I was curious how it compared.  Located where the old Tortuga’s use to be.

Galvan’s Sausage House 1924 Hwy. 90A (near Pitts Rd.) Richmond, TX Cuisine:  Homemade Sausage, Brisket, Ribs and Boudin Folks, this may be the best-kept secret in Fort Bend County.  A very unassuming place tucked in a small, red, wood-framed building with no more than five tables in it.  Across the dirt driveway is an outdoor […]

Winding up the search for the best barbecue in the bend, I have to say the absolute best barbecue to be had was at the Fort Bend County Fair Barbecue Cook-Off this past weekend.  Always a fun event, this year was no exception.  A room full of judges tasting ribs, brisket, sausage, and chicken would […]

Schulze’s Bar-b-que 1214 First Street Rosenberg, TX 77471 Cuisine:  Barbecue This is another long-time barbecue establishment with an equal reputation for goodness.  It came highly recommended by our readers, so I went in with high expectations. In a very casual, dated, cafeteria atmosphere, you order up and build your plate as you go through the […]
