I was just reading about fiddleheads on wikipedia and it looks like they are actually kind of dangerous to eat! I had never heard of them but it looks like people do it anyway.

And then in Detroit there's Paczki Day (why not, it's also Fat Tuesday)

Paczki, those huge filled donuts are getting easier to find around Detroit (except during Lent)

I love those things! Talk about a heart attack disguised as a pastry. They are big in the part of West Michigan I am from as well. Have you ever seen the "numbers" on those things when made the traditional way?

Rocky Mountain oysters. I can only assume they taste like raw meat because they are the private parts of a bull.

I'm not sure about the Southeast Missouri area.

St. Louis has toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, and thin-crust pizza made with provel cheese.

the food here is more authenitc than tex mex, tex mex uses more jalapenos and New Mexican food uses red or green chiles,Mexican food tends to use a green and a red sauce, more like hot sauce and steak meat.

and New Mexican food is a blend of Spanish,Mexican,and Native American cuisines in one..and is usually hotter than texmex or mexican.
Tex Mex is more of a blend of texas favorites and mexican food and usually in my opinion is more bland.
