  • 4. Wild Side by Adams, Kevin
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    “The summer flowering episode is my favorite, particularly in the mountain region,” says Adams. ”Beginning around mid-July and lasting into September, the roadsides become an exciting hodgepodge of vivid yellows, purples, and reds.” The flowers that Adams describes are summer wildflowers. Spring wildflowers have plenty of sunshine to grow in, but the summer ones must compete for the light. This makes them grow tall, big, and in thick clusters. Such growth makes for good viewing of their blossoms either on road shoulders or in adjoining fields. He describes wildflower viewing in the following areas: Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Ashe and Alleghany Counties, U.S. Highway 19, and Nantahala and Pisgah national forests.

  • 5. Top Banana by Gigley, Chris
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    “Banana pudding is the most widely served dessert in North Carolina's barbecue's restaurants,” writes Bob Garner, North Carolina's barbecue guru. But as to how this dessert made with tropical fruit became such a favorite in the Old North State is anybody's guess. Garner says, “Probably because it's relatively quick and easy to make, and because the creamy taste and soft texture provide a pleasant contrast to the tangy bite of the barbecue and/or coleslaw.” Gigley lists five restaurants and describes their particular styles of banana pudding. They are Jed's Bar-B-Cue, Greensboro; Gary's Barbecue, China Grove; The Gathering Place, Archdale; Taste of Country Buffet, Wilmington; and Tupelo Honey Café, Asheville.
