22 articles in the past 7 days. We’re gunning for it in 2013 to see if we can top our city-high best of 735 posts like back in the salad days of 2012.

Last week we were all over the board with articles on barbecue, coffee, craft beer, obituaries, birth notices and our all time most popular category: Austin Daily Photo. On to our weekly top 5; as always, determined by page views. It’s heartening to see our Broken Arrow Ranch feature in the top spot. We grew up eating wild game that we’d hunted and trapped in the woods of the Cumberland Highlands. There is no finer meat. We’ve got our first pop up of 2013 planned for Saturday night Jan 12 2013 at Tamale House East.

Chili is a subject very near and dear to the team behind this website. We eat it, we dream about it, we write articles about it. Much like Jodi Bart of Tasty Touring and her infamous love of maple syrup, we could not abide an existence without it. And we have a brand new site category devoted to it: The Art And Science of Chili http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2013/1/1/Introducing-A-Brand-New-Category-On-Scrumptious-Chef-The-Art-And-Science-Of-Chili?adminview=true
