Backroad Bites Juniper

The recipe for a solid small-town atmosphere must include lots of fresh food and lots of laugher around a table. On this episode of Backroad Bites, we took a ride to Ridge Spring to visit Juniper. What we learned is that if your grandma taught you to cook…you can cook! #SCETVDigital

Kicker's Take-out in Greenwood, SC

The Sassafras to many South Carolinians is the tallest mountain in the state but for the folks of Greenwood, it’s a must-have menu item. On this episode of Backroad Bites, we donned our pastels for the Festival of Flowers stopping by Kickers to learn about what makes this part of the state so special.

Dorothea Benton Frank

In 2010, The Big Picture visited her beloved Lowcountry home on Sullivan’s Island and spent the day getting to know her. In her typical humor, she told us she never dreamed of being an author, she always thought she’d be a “princess.”

Born and raised on Sullivan’s Island, Dorothea “Dottie” Benton Frank was a New York Times best-selling author of 20 novels that use South Carolina as a backdrop.
