It's rare that we just plain ol' run a recipe on this site, so you know it's got to be awfully good. We're huge fans of women who play with fire and love Jennifer Chandler's quick, fresh, fantastic style of cooking.

When she told us she had a few Super Bowl-centric recipes from the upcoming "Simply Grilling: 105 Recipes for Quick and Casual Grilling," (and the guts to say her fried chicken method improved upon the classic one), we grabbed them and ran to glory. You should, too.

Got a layer of snow on the grill cover? Brush it off and spark it up 'cause it's game time.

You can't help but be stunned by the visual splendor when walking around the Western Cape region of South Africa, in towns like Stellenbosch. Immediately you see why this part of the African continent is so well suited for the wine making craft, which was recently my mission for "Inside Africa."

The mountain ranges here reach upwards of 1,500 meters, circling a valley of rolling hills packed with rich soil. Winds become funneled forces of nature, sending gusts of clay and other minerals over the landscape. This kind of weather and topography help give Western Cape grapes their unique taste - but to make really good wine people have to be smart.

How did Kit Kat become king of candy in Japan?

A sweet-tooth in Japan isn’t hard to satisfy. The country’s convenience stores are stocked with a range of intriguing confectionery, but often you’ve got to be quick to catch them.

A short shelf life isn’t because products like Hokkaido cheese chocolate are snapped up by hordes of roving umami-hunters, but because perpetual revolution of a product range is the key to survival for brands in Japan.

Breakfast buffet: National heavenly hash day

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

This treat is fit for the pearly gates - February 2 is National Heavenly Hash Day!

Whatever mental image the name of this mystery dish conjures up in your mind, you're probably right! That's because the name "heavenly hash" has been given to several things, and indeed, they all sound divinely inspired.

If heavenly hash is mentioned around the holidays, it's most likely that fluffy white fruit salad that can contain any number of yummy ingredients all swirled together. Typically, sour cream, mini marshmallows, mandarin oranges, coconut and pineapple chunks are mixed and left to sit in the fridge overnight.
