For 30 years, this married couple has written about ma-and-pa eateries dotting America's back roads. Here, they dish up the full story.

Kitchen Hero
Hap Townes, proprietor of a now-defunct Nashville cafeteria, shares his recipe for Shockingly Sweet Stewed Tomatoes. ''Needless to say,'' the Sterns write, ''it is a terrible faux pas even to think of using fresh tomatoes.''

The Skinny
An effervescent memoir that leaves you craving barbecue, Coca-Cola cake, and (maybe) chitlins.
