The Art of Football

By Jessica MischnerThe Sporting SouthJanuary 5, 2012

Let me be clear: I rarely, and I mean rarely, get excited about anything having to do with football. Sure, I love the fall and tailgating and college sports as much as the next self-respecting Southern lass, but professional football might as well be cricket for all I know or care about it. But I've discovered a new-found appreciation for the history of the sport thanks to Guts & Glory, Taschen's new coffee table compendium of the most beautiful shots in the history of professional football taken by Neil Leifer, one of the most famous sports photographers to ever tote a camera.

By Elizabeth HutchisonBelle DecorJanuary 4, 2012

The Christmas decorations are back in the attic, the requisite collards, Hoppin’ John, and pork have all been consumed and at G&G we are back in the office and gearing up for 2012 which means it’s time to clear the clutter from our desks and get organized. First step: a new 2012 calendar. We’ve got our eye on these Southern-inspired letterpress wall calendars that easily double as art.

Portrait of a Bookshelf

By Jessica MischnerBelle DecorDecember 14, 2011

I have a borderline pathological obsession with cookbooks. Old, new, how-to, high-brow, specialized, spiral-bound, gingham-covered, handwritten, or altogether indecipherable (metric measurements! jello molds!)–as long as the pictures are good, I'm an easy sell. Or I was, at least, until two years ago, when my husband, Will, gifted me this print by Georgia-born, New York-based artist Jane Mount for Christmas.

Shop Small Saturday

By Jessica MischnerSouthern in the CityNovember 23, 2011

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Free Shipping Day. Now, for the second year in a row, there's another shopping event to add to the calendar: Small Business Saturday. Introduced by American Express to bridge the gap between the Friday and Monday following Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday (or #shopsmall, as it's trending on Twitter) is probably just another shameless attempt to get us to spend money on things we may or may not need. But maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Fishing the Flint

By The EditorsThe Sporting SouthNovember 21, 2011

This is the time of year when most of us are thinking about deer and ducks. But I couldn’t pass up an opportunity earlier this month for a fishing trip I’ve been wanting to take for a long time now—a float trip down the Flint River in Georgia in pursuit of what’s sometimes referred to as Georgia’s unofficial state fish, the shoal bass

A Month of Pimento Cheese

By Jessica MischnerSouthern in the CityNovember 4, 2011

The Gurgling Cod blog has declared November to be National Pimento Cheese Awareness Month, and since I'm in full support of anything having to do with pimento cheese or the celebration thereof, I'm doing my part to bring attention to this particular campaign and ask that you do the same. Tweet about it. Make an announcement on Facebook. And for Heaven's sake, please share your favorite PC recipes with us. I'll start with two of my go-to's, one from a Southern chef and one from–gasp!–a chef in New York.
