Crave real food

Over the past few months we have found a new guilty pleasure in Castle Rock. Crave Real Food, or The Crave as we lovingly call it, has blessed our small town with unique combinations of burgers that leave you stuffed and wanting to try more. Creations like the "Fatty melt" start with 2 grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun and a killer burger in the middle. Their "Nutter Butter" has to be one of my top favorite burgers there so far. The peanut butter, bacon and jalapeƱos create the fantastic savory flavor with some heat.

So far we have been there 6 times in the past 8 weeks. If you go I highly suggest sitting at the bar. Watching them cook all of these different items is truly a delight to watch.

Recipe: Paloma

This has to be one of my all time favorite summer time drinks.

Review of KFC's Grilled Chicken

I was just going to stop for a A&W root beet float but I gave into the chicken cravings. So i tried out their Grilled Chicken and it was tasty. I have to disagree with their definition of grilled chicken. When I think of grilled chicken it is without the skin. Their version still leaves the skin on. It was properly marinated, seasoned, baked and then grilled for about 30 seconds to give it some lines. I wouldn't doubt if they had a Forman grill in the back to do that. I really wish that KFC would come out with a true skinless option for their chicken. At least they still give out those awesome biscuits and plastic sporks.

It can't be that hot! ... It sure is

This afternoon I went with some coworkers to Yazoo BBQ for lunch. I had their "Bob" with some fried pickles and peach cobbler. When we went to sit down my friend Matt started reacting to the temperature of the BBQ sauce. I didn't believe him so I took a small sample too. Needless to say that the bottle is right and my mouth was on FIRE for the next 15 minutes from a tiny sample. I would highly recommend Yazoo BBQ as everything I have had there is outstanding and at a great price.
