The Taste of Home team always has so much fun planning our April/May issue because we do it in the deepest, darkest part of winter, when the mere thought of the freshness of spring can lift our spirits.

kickin’ chicken

[Hometown Homemade] Kickin’ Chicken Doused in a cayenne-rich sauce and served with a slice of white bread and some pickle chips, this fiery fowl has skyrocketed in popularity even beyond Music City in recent years. Reportedly, it all started in the 1930s in the Nashville kitchen of Thornton Prince. Prince had come home from a late night out, and his girlfriend was none too happy about it. For payback the next morning, she fried up a batch of chicken and loaded on the hot pepper and spices—but her punishment backfired. Prince went wild for the spicy chicken and soon after opened what is now Prince’s Hot Chicken on the city’s south side.

shiny, happy & healthy

Certain oils can boost your pet’s health. Some fight inflammation; others reduce anxiety or enhance a shiny coat. But knowing which oil is best for your pet depends on the animal’s specific health needs and what’s already in its diet. According to Michael San Filippo, an American Veterinary Medical Association spokesperson, “Our general advice is to consult your veterinarian before administering oils to address or prevent health issues.” Some pet-specific factors the vet will take into consideration are the animal’s age and weight, as well as any underlying health conditions and medications. We spoke to two experts in the field who offered their insights on the three best oils for pets. COCONUT OIL “All fats can benefit skin and coat health,” says Gary Richter, veterinarian, author of The Ultimate Pet Health Guide…
