    I remember when I first heard of bread pudding, and to be honest the thought pretty much disgusted me. My brain just couldn’t imagine bread as pudding. It reminded me of that Sesame Street song, One of These Things Is Not Like The Other. To me it was sort of like saying, well, pig candy. […]

    This is the land of the old-fashioned hamburger. Found in small restaurants hugging railroads tracks that crisscross the counties of northeast Mississippi, northwestern Alabama and lower Tennessee.
