There are many different ways to make Chicken Bog, from adding fresh vegetables like onions and green peppers to dressing with a unique selection of spices. But everyone agrees on the three…

Johnny D’s, in Central Myrtle Beach, and its chef, Jamie Saunders, are breakfast legends. While the restaurant may be known for its sweets (hello, pound cake French toast!), its savory is just as nice. The inventive crab cakes benedict perhaps intrigues more than anything else on the sprawling menu. It's chock full of interesting tastes and delightful decadence. Chef Jamie graciously agreed to share his recipe for the grilled crab cake, which you can eat plain, as a sandwich or “benedict” as he does. Grilled Crab Cakes ½ to ¾ cup Panko…

According to a ranking by Spoon University, a blog serving as an “everyday resource” for great meals and restaurants, the ART Burger at ART Burger Sushi Bar in Myrtle Beach is the best burger in the state of South Carolina. We may be biased, but we have to agree. Here, the restaurant’s namesake burger – like all its dishes – is artfully prepared. A ground beef patty is stacked high with thick-sliced bacon, marinated red onions, blue cheese crumbles, walnut chutney (see recipe below), and the memorably branded ART bun. This burger gives art a…

Deviled eggs are not just delicious, they’re also quite nutritious. Eating two deviled eggs, or essentially one whole egg, supplies your body with 6 grams of protein; folate, vitamin B-6 and vitamin B-12, which all help convert food into energy; and three forms of vitamin A, among others. Frank’s in Pawleys Island takes the whole thing one step further, by dipping the egg whites in a panko-and-milk bath and then deep-frying the thing before piping in deviled yolk. Top that off with jalepeno and bacon and it’s a recipe for amazingness. Never you…

From shrimp and grits to a Lowcountry Boil, the recipes are endless, but one of my favorite summer recipes is a Lowcountry Shrimp Salad. It’s light and refreshing, perfect for a picnic on a hot summer…
