Everyone’s Invited To My Pie Pop Party

Just as I was kinda sorta maybe starting to get sick of the cake pop trend, I am introduced to the concept of pie pops, and my faith in ridiculous-desserts-on-a-stick is restored. This pie pop mold lets you bake mini pies and fill them with anything from fresh berries to Nutella to meat (or, if…

Could Chocolate Be The Answer To Your Sunburnt Skincare Woes?

My acne-ridden youth (okay, fine, it was like 20 zits total) engrained in me that chocolate was a pimple-flaring, oil-producing skincare devil to be avoided at all costs. In my more recent, better-skinned years I’ve turned to the dark, 80% cocoa variety to cure me of late-afternoon nap compulsion and early-morning sugar cravings, but I…

Costume Jewelry Finds An Unlikely Muse In A Familiar Frozen Treat

Inspiration can be found in the least likely places — like, um, frozen yogurt. Pinkberry is good, but is it good enough to provide a solid foundation on which to launch a collection of jewelry? To honor the grand opening of Pinkberry’s first outer-borough location, Brooklyn-based jewelry brand Sorrelli fashioned earrings, necklaces, and bracelets to…

Instagraham Crackers Are Addicting And Delicious

If you have Instagram, you know how addicting it is to snap artsy photos of food, sunsets, and good hair days and share them with friends.

11 Adorable Fruit Babies

It’s baby season. I mean, fruit season. I mean, I didn’t realize there were so many fruit babies being born out there. The word is that people bring fruit babies to baby showers. But isn’t that kind of creepy to eat a baby?  Oh well, who am I to judge? These babies are making me…

Violet Beauregarde Would Be Happy: Dinner Gumballs Are Here

In “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” Violet Beauregarde met her sad end when she chewed a piece of Wonka’s Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The most amazing, sensational piece of gum in the world included tomato soup, roast beef and a baked potato. But it was the dessert course that went all wrong. The blueberry pie made…

Be The Pizza Ninja You’ve Always Wanted To Be

Artist Steph Mantis has done some pioneering work with pizza: specifically, encasing real pizza slices in resin to preserve it, in her words, “FOREVERRRRR.” These “pizza ninja stars,” which turn four harmless pieces of pepperoni pizza into a deadly weapon, look terrifyingly delicious (or is it deliciously terrifying?). [Neatorama]…

Weekend Project: Red Wine Fudgesicles

Based on a very unscientific opinion survey, approximately 90% of people think red wine fudgesicles are proof of divine intervention, while the other 10 percent (ahem, Julie) gags at the thought of them. If you’re part of the majority who would love a refreshing lick of wine and chocolate on a stick, check out the

Care For Some “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Dessert?

I condone poorly-written erotic fan fiction that finds its way to the mainstream. Good for it! And I obviously condone dessert. Duh. But I’m not sure that I condone them together. We get it. People have an appetite for BDSM erotica. And for sweets. But are Fifty Shades of Grey inspired desserts really necessary? I…

Would You Eat A Beer-Filled Donut?

Yep, you read that right: this crazy creation from a place called (fittingly) Psycho Donuts is filled with real beer pastry cream and topped with beer nuts. I’m a huge fan of donuts but I hate beer, so this confection leaves me conflicted. Would you be brave enough to take a bite? [Neatorama]…

Some Lick It Hot

As far as I’m concerned, the hotter the better when it comes to anything edible. I take green Tabasco on my eggs, cayenne chili powder on my veggies, chili flakes on my pizza, Sriracha on just about everything else — all applied liberally. Sometimes, at restaurants, I ask for my own bottle of hot sauce.

If you really want to add feeling and flavor to your meals, you’ll want to season with Salt Made From Tears. The collection of artesian salts, made with real human tears, are boiled, crystallized, harvested by hand and rinsed into brine. But not every kind of tear tastes the same on the palate. It really…

Properly Portion Your Pasta

In my house, however much pasta you make, you must eat! (This, I believe, is the unofficial slogan of Italy.) But because I never correctly estimate a proper portion of noodles (particularly long ones like spaghetti, fettuccine, etc.), and always air on the side of more, I end up eating a lot more than I…
