It seems like people either love or hate Green Papaya (409 Coliseum Blvd), and I can kind of see why. My first experience with Green Papaya was during my first year in Montgomery. I was living near the fairgrounds, and almost nightly I’d lie in bed in my lonely new town shaking the Urban Spoon […]

On my journey to a healthier me, I have recently started an elimination diet where I am cutting out known inflammatory foods such as dairy, meat, sugar, grains (rice, wheat, etc), starchy vegetables (beans and potatoes) and alcohol.

Too Hot to Cook?

Too Hot to Cook?

I don’t have to tell you this, it’s quite obvious. It is hot in Alabama. It is (in my Pacific Northwest-born opinion) too damn hot to cook! According to the 10 day forecast, it’s not about to cool down anytime soon and the humidity is here to stay. It’s almost too hot to eat, but […]

Cooking With Davena: Corned Beef Hash

Cooking With Davena: Corned Beef Hash

Growing up as a kid, I was convinced that my father made the best corned beef hash on the planet. He would get the cast iron skillet smoking hot and separate the congealed hash from the can by running a knife between the two. He would then put a dollop (okay, maybe a quarter cup) […]
