RESTAURANT REVIEW: Ceci's Chicken & Waffles in North Little Rock

Maybe there's hope yet for the lowly chicken gizzard. Sure, there's that unappetizing name, but in a dining age when sweetbreads (the thymus or pancreas of calves or lambs) and head cheese (jellied calf or pig head meat) are haute cuisine for adventurous diners, maybe the gizzard's turn in the spotlight is coming soon.

TELL ME ABOUT IT: Don't wage war with neighbors over back-porch clamor

posted: 05/19/2016 1:48 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: My family is very lucky to live in a big house with a big front porch, backyard, and a second-floor back porch. My preteen daughter especially loves that back porch. In the summer she spends whole days out there listening to the radio and yakking on her cellphone. This is great for the rest of the family -- she is not bothering her brothers and sisters, or nagging me to drive her to the movies. And my daughter is happy!
