Want to make a cheap, easy, and delicious dessert? Crêpes, the traditional French pancakes, are perfect to impress your dinner guests. But before we begin, a little lesson in pronunciation. The e in the word is said like eh: krehps. If you can get a bit of a throaty roll on the r. It’s not craypes. Nor is it craps. Let’s hope your dish doesn’t end up tasting like the latter.
After the jump, a recipe, plus ideas for fun fillings both savory and sweet! Keep reading »
Some people’s pets are like kids to them…and any parent would go nuts if you put their kid in the cargo hold. That’s why Pet Airways will fly your furry friend to your desired destination on their own fleet of planes on pets-only flights.
Pet Airways only flies to five cities in the U.S. and charges a flat, one-way fee of $250. But pet owners interviewed by the AP say the cost is worth the piece of mind knowing their basset hound or tabby cat will be escorted onto the flight along with about 50 other pets, checked on every 15 minutes during the flight, and given a bathroom break on the layover. Flights are already booked up for two months! Is it just me, or does this business idea sound like the really bad plot of a kids’ movie? [Or my dream job. -- Editor] [AP] Keep reading »
Save for the murse-carrying set, somehow guys manage to carry the world in their pockets. How they do it is beyond us. But maybe it’s because they’re just more creative than we think, and have secret hiding places. Like this dapper device, the iTie, which features a covert pocket on the backside, in which to store an iPod or small cell phone. It even has little button holes that attach to a dress shirt, so the tie stays in place. Now…what other fashion tricks do men have up their
sleeves ties? [Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
Dreams do come true ladies, and this video of the cocky Gryffindor student “Cormac McLaggen” from “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince,” is living proof. I know a bunch of you out there used “The Secret” to will this hot few minutes of actor Freddie Stroma shaking his booty shirtless into reality. It’s actually an ad for Acne man panties, so it’s fitting he’s shaking his money maker! Oh yeah, and Freddie, I’ll still be checking you out (clothed, sigh) in the new “Harry Potter” movie, which opens tomorrow! [WOW]

Yikes! A 54-year-old Californian mother of three booked an appointment with a plastic surgeon to have some work done. But when she found out how many Benjamins she’d have to lay down, she did what every thrifty American would do. (NOT!) She went online, bought a $10 vial of liquid silicone, and injected it into her own lips and cheeks. She is — shocker! — not so pleased with her new face. Keep reading »

Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well and was shocked to see a man in his, I swear, 90′s, sitting front row and center. I was concerned he would have a heart attack. Anyhoo, check out Babs’ disgust in the clip above. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
