Welcome to round three of Spouse vs. Spouse, a series in which a couple of married food freaks, CNN’s Brandon and Kristy Griggs, square off in their Atlanta kitchen for culinary bragging rights – and invite you to weigh in too.
In each installment, Kristy and Brandon will each cook a creative variation on the same ingredient or dish – everything from pasta to seafood to cocktails to desserts. We’ll serve both versions anonymously to our friends, who will then judge which one they like better and why. We’ll walk you through our kitchen process, bring the husband-and-wife smack talk and, of course, keep score. We’ll also share our recipes here so that you can try them for yourself.
Our theme: Pasta
Sink your teeth into today's top stories from around the globe.
While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Born in the U.S.A.! - October 27 is National American Beer Day.
Grab your best pals, wander down to your favorite bar and raise a glass to American-made beer. More than 1,700 breweries in the U.S. are churning out and crafting your favorite beverage, so give them a proper salute.
Beer has long been part of our culture, dating back to colonial times, although things almost skidded to a halt when Prohibition loomed large in the 20s. Luckily, the underground scene kept churning out substitutes, even if they paled in comparison.
