No matter the illness, there's a food for that

Frequently, I get spam emails telling me about miracle foods that heal everything from the common cold to common ugliness. I file them with the messages I get from that nice old lady who wants to give me $850,000.

My first paying job was picking pumpkin squash in a farmer's field for 2 1/2 hot summer days. I probably was about 10 years old. Daddy and Papa both had given me various non-paid tasks since I was 4, but I made $1 a day working for this farmer!

Bring out grill for healthy fare

Summer is known as the cookout season, but my family's gas grill gets some serious year-round use. We grill steaks, chops, burgers or vegetables at least once a week. It's convenient to fire up the grill during the hottest months of the year, eliminating the need to use the oven or stove, which can unnecessarily heat up a home.

Watermelon is sweet part of Fourth

No July 4 celebration is complete without a cold, fresh slice of watermelon to wash down those hot dogs, hamburgers and tater chips. I'd like to think it's the way the Founding Fathers would have wanted it.

Preserve the flavor of summer

Those who regularly visit Hinesville's Farmers Market are wise to enjoy the locally grown fruits and vegetables. They're tastier and healthier than store-bought stuff, and they're locally produced.

Offbeat eating on Tybee

After a day (or if you're super lucky, days) of sitting in the sand while the Atlantic laps your toes, the last thing you need are difficult decisions.

Sweet memories involving food

A simple sound, smell, action or flavor - a hug from a grandbaby, my wife's smile on our wedding day or a "drank and pack of nabs" - can activate memories of long ago.

Vindicated over once 'bad' foods

This column, "Around the Table," has celebrated a number of foods the so-called experts tell us are bad. I quietly but forcefully tell these control freaks to leave me alone. I'll eat what Georgia boys have been eating since 1733. I have a wife and a mama; I don't need a nanny.
