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.

Cry Me A Seasoning

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,…

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.

Adonia Frozen Yogurt Will Make A Greek Goddess Out Of You

I’ll preface this Crave by saying I am literally Craving this right now, and as soon as you try it, you will be too. I consider myself fortunate to be able to say that ice cream is my only vice — well, aside from brut, brut rosé, prosecco, and any and all other varieties of…

11 Foodkinis You Probably Shouldn’t Swim In, But Can Definitely Snack On

I don’t know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can’t wear it while I swim? At least I won’t have to…
