The murder of Amy Lord on July 23, 2013, was the type of crime Bostonians would never believe could happen in Southie.
She was a pretty 24-year-old newcomer to the tight-knit neighborhood attacked by a career criminal in the vestibule of her building. He then forced her her own Jeep to withdraw cash from 5 separate ATM machines. Lord’s unimaginable ordeal only ended when her captor stabbed and strangled her to death. READ MORE

Think you know burgers? Then you don’t know George. This past weekend, our burger aficionado, George Motz, was in Miami filming new episodes of Burger Land, returning to Travel Channel this spring. We got a sneak peek of some of the burgers George got to taste for us — all part of the job…
Clockwise from top left: The half-pound Latin Macho; a classic “frita”; fried plantains instead of a bun; a frita and a cup of Guarapo (sugar cane juice).
Get the story behind Burger Land, and to hold you over until the new episodes premiere, check out George’s picks for Great Burger Joints in the Middle of Nowhere, or make your own Smashed Motz Burger. And don’t forget to spice up your homemade burgers with George’s hot sauce recipes.

He scours the villages of this Oceanic country in the hopes of finding delicious Blue Mountain Coffee.

Tonight @ 9|8c, Todd ventures to the birthplace of coffee: Ethiopia. Finding a great coffee bean in the motherland should be easy, right? Well, not exactly.
Since great coffee is available for purchase in markets throughout the country, Todd has to go above and beyond to find a bean that is not only better than great, but different from anything he’s already found. Not to mention, the government tightly guards the country’s coffee industry. Not only does the government control the coffee trade with a Wall Street-like market system, but they also blend every kind of bean together, stripping it of any discernable identity.
Can Todd navigate Ethiopia’s chaotic roads and overpowering government to find a new and exotic coffee bean? Tune in to find out!
