This is one of those posts.

Over the holidays we had a chance to sample several varieties of a new dip from a company called Chef Jenn out of Memphis. […]

Angling in Southwest Florida

The fish were also delicious fried and we enjoyed them sautéed with a spicy orange sauce. Going to throw the large Bull Reds on the grill this weekend keeping the skin and scales […]
