Ask Joe Henderson any question and odds are he’ll give you a very thorough answer. But ask him how to save one of the most endangered breeds in the world, the Randall Lineback, he’ll give you a very short retort: You have to eat it.

Henderson, a Washington, D.C. real estate executive and farmer, raises around 250 Randall Linebacks on the rolling hills of his Chapel Hill Farm in Berryville, VA. And what exactly is a Randall Lineback?

A group of customers at Chilly D's Sports Lounge at the Cameo Club Casino in Stockton, California were enjoying an entertaining evening out - until they too a look at the bill. It wasn't the total that had them in shock; it was the language used to identify the women's party: "Fat Girls."

The restaurant issued an apology via Facebook:

This is a message for the girls that had a very bad experience at our bar a few nights ago and for anyone that was negatively affected by this. What happened to those girls at our bar was unacceptable and is in no way a reflection of how we run our business. We are just as appalled at what happened to these ladies and this employee has been immediately terminated. We are a family run business and strive to make our customers feel welcomed and appreciated.

CNN photojournalist John Bodnar is a second-generation Slavic-American whose grandparents emigrated from Eastern Slovakia, and his mother’s Carpatho-Rusyn ethnicity is the prominent influence for his cultural and family traditions. Previously, he wrote about haluski and paska.

When we were kids, stuck inside during a long, cold winter or seeking respite from the summer heat under a shade tree, my friends and I often played board games. These games could go on for quite a while, and we'd get to talking about sports and whatever else young boys think about. Eventually we'd get around to the topic of our favorite foods.

We all agreed that stuffed cabbage, known as holupki, was the best of all. Second to pizza, of course.

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

Raise a glass - December 10 is National Lager Day!

Despite being the most popular type of beer in the world, lager is a relative newcomer to the beer scene when compared with ale.

Ale uses the strain of yeast that ferments at the surface of the fermenting vessel (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), which was also the original strain used to produce beer in ancient Babylon more than 5,000 years ago.
