McDonald's has, of course, been the target of criticism over its ingredients. The president of McDonald's USA told The New York Times the fast-food chain is trying to talk more openly about its food in order to change customer attitudes.

The company announced Monday it had met its goal of no longer using chicken raised with antibiotics a year earlier than planned.

One of the pairings for the cornmeal porridge is as iconic as "milk and cookies" and "peanut butter and jelly" - namely, shrimp and grits. Once I get that...

Wild for game? You might be if you prepare it the right way

Pluck a zucchini from a vine in the backyard then transform it to a plateful of fritters for supper, and the chin tilts a bit with pride.
