As a child, I could not understand how anyone could consider eating anything Rare, Raw, Marinated or Spicy.

A young palate might describe those “adult” cooking features as – Bloody, Bloodier, Slimy or Murder-mouth.

As an adult with a more mature palate, I find myself craving such foods, but all too often my tummy has determined the more exotic the meal the more I need to temper food portions.

Fire officials are zeroing in on the possible cause of a fire that destroyed a log cabin-styled home on Aug. 7 in the 200 block of Kingsland Ranch Cove on Lake LBJ - and scorching conditions may have played a factor. The structure was unoccupied. Suspicions included combustible industrial chemicals on rags as well as embers from a barbecue grill.
