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.

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…

Girl Talk: The Time I Accidentally Ordered A $175 Steak On A Date

A few years back, I enjoyed a dream-like experience. It was like something out of the most ridiculous rom-com starring … oh, let’s say, Amanda Seyfried as me, the protagonist, and Channing Tatum as Mark, my strapping love interest. I’d been on a I-just-broke-up-with-my-boyfriend-let-me-get-away-from-it-all vacation to San Francisco. I stayed with a friend, wandered around,…

Carl's Jr is currently testing a new product called the "Ice Cream Brrrger," which is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a burger made of ice cream.

This Bratwurst Cupcake Is The Worst

You guys, this is a culinary creation called Cupcakewurst. What is Cupcakewurst, you ask? Well, it's cupcake batter stuffed into a sausage casing, grilled, and served on a long doughnut with raspberry sauce "ketchup." It's definitely creative; it also definitely makes me want to barf.
