Your Hometown Country Connection


Night time is the right time!
I've been a night person all my life and this is the first time anyone's appreciated it! I was born in Philadelphia and lived many years in the Baltimore area. I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to do it for a living. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I'm a writer, musician and cartoonist in my free time. And I'm a huge fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers as well as the Maryland Terrapins.

American Cuisine, Part 1

Here is an article I stumbled across regarding American foods disliked by foreigners. Some of them I knew about already, like peanut butter and jelly. To be honest I don't care much for jelly myself... I prefer my peanut butter sandwiches be all peanut butter, but hey, that's my opinion. I'll spread some grape jelly on my toast on occasion, but other than that I have little use for it. 

But biscuits and gravy, well that's a whole other story. Being from Philly, I didn't get much (or any) exposure to Southern foods in my home. I discovered biscuits and gravy as an adult, and let me tell you, I love it. Grits, too. I had grits for the first time only a few years back, and it left me feeling empty and sorrowful for having missed out on it my whole life. 

A few others baffled me, though. I've heard before from Europeans that American bread tastes sweet. I really don't understand that. Maybe because I grew up with it. But it doesn't taste sweet to me. 

This is the first in a series of entries I'll be doing about what we eat. Cheers.
