Sometimes watching a good food movie is just as satisfying as the food itself. Living vicariously through the golden ticket winners in “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory” has been my favorite dessert substitute since I was a chubby eight-year-old with a restricted sugar intake. “They get to eat all the candy they want!!” I would squeal as the lucky children ate their way through a warehouse of candy. I just couldn’t believe their good fortune. Side note: When is someone going to invent lick-able wall paper? I want it now! Click through to see more food films that satisfy our hunger.
Remember Bonkers? Clearly Canadian? Planter’s Cheez Puffs? As much as you might love them, you can’t get them anymore.

I wrangled up a few dude friends — including a couple guys I dated — and picked their brains for answers. And, in the process, I learned that I’m making mashed potatoes all wrong, apparently.

Last night, I went to my local crappy grocery store in search of something to cook for dinner. Bypassing the chicken (it looked gross) and beef, I stood in front of the pork section and stared. I like to cook pork, but I usually do a full pork loin and eat it over the course of a few days — but pork loin takes time to marinate if you want it to be really tasty and I needed to eat something now. So I grabbed a pack of three pork chops and thought, Game on, piggy. Keep reading »

Men of the world, in case you missed the manual, which details all the things you should understand about women, let me give you a refresher on item #503: Food is just as important, if not more important, to [most of] us as love – oh, and we often use one as a substitute for the other.
