Shuck yeah? Southern Charm star Shep Rose and best bud Andrew Carmines share shuckin' secrets

"Southern Charm" star and Hilton Head Island native Shep Rose came home Feb. 24, 2017, for the Pig Pickin' and Oyster Roast. He was there to support his best friend Andrew Carmines, who is hosting the Hilton Head Island Seafood Festival on behalf of the David M. Carmines Memorial Foundation, an organization founded in memory of his brother, who succumbed to cancer in 2001. The event sold out and Rose and Carmines both gave each other credit for its success (adorably, on video).

Transplanted Midwesterner makes a mean Brunswick stew

Tucked between the barbecue purveyors at the 8th annual Bands Brews and BBQ festival in Port Royal on Feb. 25, 2017 was Mike Reilley's booth, featuring free samples his KC Mike's Smokin' Brunswick Stew. Here, the former Missourian turned Beaufort resident describes how he used his Midwestern barbecue-making skills to concoct a Brunswick stew recipe that even pleases his wife, Nancy, who grew up eating Brunswick stew in Atlanta.

Making lasting connections

LOS ANGELES - The link to the outdoors and the gentle ocean breezes that circulate through the two-story home's many transom windows play huge roles in making the home feel special.

Family

My family's African adventure

My adventure started when my family traveled to Africa in the summer of 2015. We went on safari in Tanzania. We saw lots of animals, including lions, leopards, rhinos, Cape buffalo, and elephants. We learned all about their daily life. We also learned about plants and the acacia tree, which is a spiky tree that covers the Tanzanian landscape.

Home & Garden

On Gardening: Dutch iris, a showy, camera-ready bloomer

The word on the street (I've always wanted to say that) is that the Dutch iris is a short-lived perennial. Tell that to Romano an incredible showy bloomer that we have in the garden which was planted in the late 1990's. I've led a life comparable to a house flipper so my personal experience on the longevity of perennials has been word of mouth or reference book to say the least, but it seems to me anything approaching 20 years would rate as awesome.
