No Debate: Presidents Love Food, Too

Mitt Romney and President Obama had plenty to spar about during last night's presidential debate, but we're pretty sure they can agree that great food is part of the American dream. Just in time for election season, Food & Wine has come out with a list of the foods some of our most noted presidents have been obsessed with. Our current Prez, for example, has called the milk- chocolate-covered, sea-salt-sprinkled caramels from Fran's Chocolates "phenomenal," according to F&W.

Healthy, Hearty Italian Chicken Stew: Best of the Blogs

This Italian Chicken Stew recipe, from a blog called Blue Kitchen, has a long story behind it. For starters, its real name is "Radical hospitality, nurturing comfort: Italian Chicken Stew." That's because the recipe is from the Hedgebrook Cookbook: Celebrating Radical Hospitality, which is produced on a 48-acre writer's retreat on Whidbey Island, in the state of Washington, with a farmhouse and only six cabins for guests. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook help support Hedgebrook's mission of nurturing -- and we mean that literally, in the case of the communal dinners -- the women writers in attendance.read more

Fenway Park turns the big 1-0-0 today, which is downright amazing when you think of all the teams who have chucked nostalgia and bulldozed their ballparks in order to erect gleaming new gazillion-dollar mega-parks (with a preponderance of luxury boxes). Speaking of the Yankees (ahem)--it's no doubt fitting that the Red Sox will take on their arch rivals tonight, the same team they played at Fenway's inaugural game exactly 100 years ago. (Fenway may not have changed much, but the Yankees have, right down to their name--they were the New York Highlanders back in 1912.)
