Recipes from The Epic Culinary Chef – Connie Graf

By | Epic Extras

I am often asked the question, “What is your favorite cookbook?” I have to admit, I am a bit addicted to books with recipes and I own a nice little collection.  From many of them I will try a recipe or two and then the book goes to be proudly displayed with a family of cookbooks that adorn the buffet in my kitchen.  See, like shoes I love to buy them, but my heart, like my feet are comfortable in only a select few.

I do have a favorite cookbook. I am not sure if it is because of all the recipes I have used over and over again from it’s pages or if it is because it was given to me out of love from my mama, to begin a lifelong passion for bringing good recipes to life, for feeding a family, and for exploring the world of cooking. The cover has long ago come loose and needs repair; the pages are splattered with batter or sauce. It’s so used; one would quickly be able to pick out my favorite recipes.  But as much as I do love that old Better Homes and Garden Cookbook, I must say that my handwritten recipes cards passed down from my Granny to my mama, from Aunts to my mama then all of them to me….

Those are my most precious recipes. I hope you have favorite recipes or cookbooks and I hope you will pass them down with love.


Artist Spotlight: Savannah Low

By | Epic Extras

You can see Savannah Low perform on The Epic Theater stage during The Epic Music Showcase on Saturday, September 28. Each week, we will highlight one of the artists on this year’s lineup, all composed of local music talent across different genres. Tickets are available here.
Genre: Pop
Goes great with: Katy Perry, Pink, Miley Cyrus
Hometown: Arlington

With a professional career spanning over 15 years, Low developed a passion for music at an early age that led to an abundance of performances across Texas—as an opener for the Jonas Brothers at the State Fair of Texas, and appearing on season 9 of American Idol as one of the top 40 contestants. After featuring on tracks and performing other’s music, Low turned her attention toward stepping out of her comfort zone to fulfill a lifelong dream of releasing her own music. This lead to the release of her debut solo EP, “Bare” in the beginning of 2019. Since then, Low has played venues such as Trees, Granada Theater and Texas Live! She is currently writing and working on new music.
