omfg recipe: Canned Caramel

First, I really want to recommend the blog Grill a Chef. Second, I really want to recommend that you make this recipe from the GaC blog today. I will, too. We’ll compare notes. It’ll be fun. Agreed. Basically canned caramel is taking a can of sweetened condensed milk, putting it in a pot of water [...]

Oh, salad…

True Romance

This video is weird and mildly perverse (I mean that in a good way!), to be sure, but I find it funny that it was flagged on YouTube for inappropriate content. PS: If these two get a show on Food Network, I’m going to have to get TiVo. (link via WTF Japan Seriously?)

Is it Food or Drink? Use this handy chart.

Click for larger (Joey Rizzolo and I made this helpful Venn diagram a few years ago for our Neo-Futurists play The Council for Food. It’s part of our dogma: “Food is the best thing you can eat.”)

Sounding the Sandwich Alarm: Monte Cristo

[no recipes] posted a delicious-looking Monte Cristo recipe. Part breakfast, part club sandwich, it’s a strange combination of sweet and savory from different meals in the day.

But one after the other came these bizarre food inventions with even more bizarre visuals. I remember a cucumber shark that rocketed through a large bowl [...]

Relaxing your chicken

Step one, chicken. Step two, wtfthisvideo??! Step three, shame/confusion. (via The Daily What)

Don’t need… NEED!

I don’t think I need to explain what ToastStrips is and what it does. I only need to tell you that I love it. Hey, and it’s only 4 bucks! (purchase at Perpetual Kid, link via Oh Gizmo!)

There are hidden animals…. hiding in your cups!

Now you can unnerve your house guests with hidden animal heads in your coffee/tea cups. It’s hilarious, nightmare-inducing morning fun. I want these. (via The Daily What; available online if you can read that webpage!)

Thanks, Rachel Ray!

I found this while looking up handy recipes for a glass of water and a banana. I think my favorite part (unsurprisingly) is the comments section: “i dont know what to do. my printer is out of ink and i cant print the recipe. can someone call me and read the directions so i will [...]
