‘Small Bites’ cookbook provides gluten free snack options

Planning your Super Bowl party? To me Superbowl Sunday represents the all-time best occasion for my favorite way to eat—small plates, mezze, little bites, hors d’oevres, whatever you call the plates of goodies set out for host-guest grazing. Many of these involve crackers, bread bases, flour. These ingredients, harmless thought they may be to most of us, are anathema to people with gluten sensitivity. This book is the lifeline that rescues guests and gluten-sensitive hosts from the veggie tray and no-cracker cheese tray. It’s an entire book of wonderful creations of savory and sweet hand held treats that can be used as handy portable lunches or laid out to make the best super-bowl treat table in history.

Rockefellers has perfect atmosphere, great food

Seafood is plentiful along the coast and Rockefellers in North Myrtle Beach has shown off their culinary skills for years along with the perfect seaside atmosphere. With the wooden plats on the exterior that have a washed look, the raw bar restaurant looks very much like a sea shack. Boat seats surround the bar and paintings of mermaids and sea life cover the inside, giving the eatery a vibrant personality.

Lentils for Luck

The Italian tradition of eating lentils to ring in the New Year with good luck at the first big meal is one I enjoy for many reasons. Lentils are a favorite food of mine and they are packed with good nutrients. The slim round shape of lentils makes them resemble miniature coins, hence the association with luck and prosperity (more money) in the New Year. Delving into the Italian custom reveals that lentils have been a part of good eating and in Italy since ancient Rome ruled the world. Pairing lentils with pork to intensify promoting "good luck" and prosperity in the coming new year seems to have deliciously developed a bit later.
