The World’s Oldest Pretzel Has Ruined Pretzels For Me

Last week, the world’s oldest pretzel was found in Germany. It’s 250 years old and it looks all sorts of unappetizing. Ew. Anyway, apparently the pretzel was found in a structure that was probably a bakery in Regensburg, a town that has a lot of history to uncover. It was firebombed during World War…

Taco Bell’s Cap’n Crunch Delights Are Speaking To My Mouth And Vagina

I know how the headline sounds, but seriously, does that picture not make literally everything water? Do you not have an erection from that picture? Is this just me?

How To Make A Salad You’ll Always Want To Eat

Making a salad at home is a pain in the ass and everyone knows it. Too much chopping! Too much washing! Too many partially-used ingredients sitting in your fridge afterward! BAH HUMBUG. NO SALAD.

PUT DOWN THE SALTINES, FRIEND. We both know you’ve been snacking on crackers for the last few weeks for one of three reasons: You’re sick and you can only eat crackers without wanting to vom.

10 Reasons Why Valentine’s Day Is Awesome And You Should Celebrate It

Frisky Eats: 11 Fish Recipes For Non-Fish-Eaters

My mom grew up in South Dakota and Nebraska. She was the second of seven children, and the first daughter, which meant that she was the child most tasked with helping to prepare meals. Those two facts factored largely into my fish-less childhood -- my mom did all the cooking, and she had absolutely no…

Please Explain To Me Which Aspect Of Bulletproof Coffee Is Not Insane

There are few things on this earth I love more than coffee and butter, but mixing them together seems nothing short of blasphemous. Bulletproof coffee, as this combo is so affectionately called, has seeped its way into the morning routines of seemingly sane people over the past few months and been beaten to death by…

Ben & Jerry’s Appeals To Stoners Everywhere With New Cookie-Specific CORE Flavors

Ever since I stopped drinking as much cheap champagne and my sugar craving skyrocketed, I have become a bit of an ice cream junkie (okay, I also maybe get the munchies). I am pretty serious about stocking up on my fave flavors and Ben & Jerry's makes a bunch of them -- Mint Chocolate Cookie,…

Cadbury Hates Us, So They’re Cheaping Out On The Cadbury Creme Egg This Year

STOP THE PRESSES. CADBURY IS CHANGING ITS CADBURY CREME EGG RECIPE. A spokeswoman for Mondelez International, the company that makes the eggs, told the Mirror that they were switching from Cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate recipe to a “standard cocoa mix chocolate,” whatever the shit that means.

Watch How Sriracha Is Made (And Drool)

David Tran’s Huy Fong sriracha sauce is so popular that it inspired counterfeit sriracha. It has inspired fanatic prints. JC Penney sells a sriracha shirt. I know that it’s getting trashed on food blogs as a trend that needs to die, but honestly, I feel like sriracha is the skinny jea…

It Might Not Be Necessary To Eat Three Meals A Day, But It’s Better For You

I was scrolling through nutrition news today when I happened upon this article on the decline of the Three Meals A Day paradigm. It’s weirdly depressing: It starts out talking about the fact that back in ye olde days, before electricity, people didn’t actually eat three meals a day -- they had bread for…

An Ode To Skillet Cookies

Skillet cookies: The only cookies guaranteed - designed - to be warm when you eat them. Skillet cookies: As good with ice cream as without. Take that, every other dessert. Skillet cookies render ice cream irrelevant. Skillet cookies: Almost impossible to burn.

Frisky Eats: 9 Ways To Cook With Parsnips

I really, really enjoy cooking and am pretty much the anti-thesis of a picky eater. When I look at a menu, everything looks and sounds delicious. That said, when I go into a grocery store or peruse the local farmer's market, I find myself strangely intimidated by certain vegetables. It took me awhile to finally…

I’m A Little Bit Terrified Of Nutelasagna

NOPE To This Grilled Cheese Cronut

I like donuts, I like croissants, and I like yellow cheeses. I do not like them all in the same place. The cooking blog Oh, Bite It! took Dominique Ansel’s recipe for cronuts and decided that the right thing to do would be to put Kraft American cheese slices in the cronuts instead…
