Waffold: Are waffle sandwiches the next frozen yogurt?
From the post:

The real question, though, is whether waffle sandwiches can do what frozen yogurt did in Atlanta in the past five years. I don’t have actual statistics, but I’d say that roughly ten million trillion* frozen yogurt stands have opened in Atlanta in the past five years or so. The appeal is somewhat lost on me, but clearly has not been lost on the Atlanta crowds thronging to these places. Waffle House has certainly shown that Atlanta is a waffle town. Perhaps this is the moment for gourmet waffle sandwiches.

"I’m not big into going to the doctor. It took most of the humility I had to turn to the Google bar and type in “postpartum depression” and “men.” I was surprised to learn that as many as one in every four new dads suffers from some form of the doldrums. That’s 2,700 new fathers each day, nationwide. I found out that after childbirth, a man’s testosterone levels ebb while his estrogen surges—conceivably to make him a more faithful and nurturing parent; no one’s sure. The hormonal shift leaves us just as susceptible to mood swings as Mom. And it’s thought that a major trigger for depression is the lack of response from the child."

A summer indulgence: Tomatoes, tomatoes
From the post:

It’s a known fact that you just can’t have too many tomatoes. And by “tomatoes,” I mean real tomatoes—the kind that ripen in the sunshine, spend no more than an hour or two in captivity, and, when sliced, display their jewel tones all the way through.

A guide to Chinese dumplings across Atlanta’s Buford Highway

From the post:

According to most of my Chinese friends, finding good dumplings in Atlanta is harder than scaling the Great Wall. They would rather make them on their own. One friend, though, was more optimistic than the rest. Chef Ken Lim, the owner at Penang Atlanta, has been eating dumplings for thirty years, and he offered to be my guide for the afternoon. Lim first came to Atlanta in 1996 to help his uncle open Penang, and just last year Lim returned to the city to takeover the family business.
