There is one member of the Big Flavors family that is just not discussed enough around here. She’s made an appearance on the Hot Dog Taste Test Championship and on the About the Big Flavors page, so you know she’s [...]
St. Patrick’s Day is always a celebration in this city. Not only is there a very strong Irish heritage and presence in Buffalo, but everyone and their brother is Irish on this weekend. In fact, the St. Patrick’s Day parade here is the 3rd largest in New York state. It stretches [...]
I’ve always had a soft spot for a good healthy morning muffin, which first originated during my bagel-slingin’ days. We (and by we I mean the bagel shop) always had 6 or 7 different muffin varieties for sale. They were baked in the morning and once they were gone, they were gone. The [...]
I think it’s time to declare February as Bean Month, at least in the LKBF kitchen. Don’t worry, I already confirmed that there is no conflict with an actual National Bean celebration.

It was both exciting and a little challenging to have a weekly stash of new and fresh vegetables in our crisper [...]
I made you this great, big bowl of G.O.R.P. today! Nice, huh? I’d love to tell you that it took forever, and that I made it just so you and I could celebrate National Trail Mix Day together. But, really, I threw a ton of snack foods into a large mixing bowl and [...]
A season which I feel is quickly coming to an end.
