Where do local foodies eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Charleston, SC

For cheap lunch or dinner, I recommend Sesame. It's in the old section of North Charleston. They do burgers and beer mostly, but mostly everything is made from scratch, down to the ketchup and mayo. They grind their own meat, so you can have your burger cooked to your liking. They also have excellent bean burgers if that's your persuasion. Definitely get the sweet potato fries if you go. My personal favorites are the New Zealand Burger and the South Carolina Burger. But check out their specials---there's always something seasonal and one of a kind.

Here's the link to their menu: http://www.sesameburgersandbeer.com/V...

Hope you enjoy Charleston!

Almost Summer Pudding

I can't seem to find brioche anywhere. I made it with regular french bread, and it was okay. I mostly just ate the fruit. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can sub out for the brioche?

Celery Root and Squash Gratin with Walnut-Thyme Streusel

This recipe was really great! I think I'll make it again for Christmas dinner. I've never used celery root before, and this recipe has inspired me to find other ways to use it.

Mushroom and Fennel Bread Pudding

This recipe is awesome! We served it to some vegetarian friends (we swapped the chicken broth for vegetable stock), and it made a fantastic entree. If you can, definitely use pecorino cheese.

Chocolate Pecan Pie

I just tried to make the crust according to the directions, and it didn't work. There was way too much flour. Next time I'll use the 3-2-1 crust recipe. I went with a store-bought crust this time.

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey with Pear Cider Gravy

We made this recipe today--very delicious and shockingly easy. My husband and I usually forgo turkey altogether during the holidays because we've never been able to cook it without drying it out. However, the bacon in this recipe made the turkey nice and tender and moist. Delicious! The pear cider gravy was awesome as well.

Cranberry and Citrus Sauce

I loved this cranberry sauce, but my family didn't care for the grapefruit segments. I think next time I make it, I'll keep the grapefruit zest but hold the grapefruit itself.
