World's Best Mustard? Please stake your claim.

We started buying fresh mustard at a local farmers market. Jars of whole seeds delicately marinated in vinegar. Of course I set out toale some myself as small jars are $6.00. I found this recipe and am now being told that it almost identicle to the specialty item we were buying. Check here for more info.

What to serve with tamales for Christmas Eve?

At our house we serve hearty borscht! This what a blending of culture will get you. Our kids are grown up enough so that they now look forward to the tradition.

San Antonio

Tom's has closed, Rudy's is alright for a chain. Check out BBQ Station for the real deal. If you can hit the road there are some fabulous BBQ joints within an hour of SA. Salt Lick outside Austin. In Lockhart TX there's Kreuz, Smitty's and Black's, all top notch.

Best ICE CREAM in Ohio??

The Big Dipper is a treat. Located on the border of Garfield heights and Cleveland in an old neighborhood grocery. Wonderful homemade ice cream and local produce when in season. Try the Peanut Butter Pretzel ice cream. Beware, a small cone is HUGE!

Dinner in NE San Antonio, Converse, Universal City

I agree with Bangkok Thai, among the best in San Antonio. Good burger, try Big'z. Directly west on 1604. Big's is owned by Andrew Weisman, One of the top chefs in the state and operates a fabulous restaurant called La Reve downtown. Bigz has great handmade burgers and a really nice assortment of beers. Sit on the deck if it's not too hot.
