Really now, what would you do with yourself if I wasn’t around to tell you about the goings on in my favorite state, Florida? You’d be lost, I know. Yesterday, I told you about a woman who cut her boyfriend for cutting the cheese. Today, the big Florida news involves exotic meat tacos.
At Tampa’s Taco Fusion restaurant, you can enjoy a beaver, camel, otter or even lion taco for $35 a piece — the price of 11 regular tacos.
I’m sure you’re wondering what the issue is. That you spend an entire paycheck trying to get full? Yes, that’s a problem. But an even bigger problem is that lions are being reviewed for the endangered species list, which has some customers concerned that it’s unethical and possibly illegal to serve the lion tacos.

Capitalizing on “The Great Gatsby” has reached a jazzy new peak with limited edition ice cream in the spirt of Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The Zelda Collection by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio and Tennessee opportunistically celebrates the writer and bon vivant’s “free spirt” with four different flavors which carry you from her childhood in Alabama to Paris in the Roaring Twenties: Blackberries + Sweet Cream, Cognac + Marmalade, Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam, and Dark Chocolate Rye. Not sure if the Fitzgeralds are rolling over in their graves or thumbing their noses because there isn’t more alcohol involved. Either way, the Zelda Collection ice cream is sold out, so we’ll never know. [Jenis via Gothamist]
These cupcakes, created by Stefani Pollack of Cupcake Project, actually contain no cake: they’re made entirely of frosting. Instead of chocolate cake, the base is made by piling chocolate frosting in a chocolate wrapper, and the whole thing is topped with more frosting. I’ve never been a big fan of frosting, so this photo is giving me a sugar headache, but I’d imagine for some people (ahem, Ami), this creation is a dream come true. Any other frosting fiends out there who are dying to try one of these? [Laughing Squid]
Here’s the thing — I will gladly eat Mexican food every single day of the year. Thankfully, there’s a holiday tailor-made for someone like me, and that glorious day is Cinco de Mayo. This year, it’s time for something different. Instead of my signature salsa-in-a-jar-with-chips appetizer served with a Costco taquito entree, I’ll try one of these delicious and simple recipes. Educate yourself on Cinco de Mayo and take your party snacks to the next level with these nine delicious recipes. Buen provecho!
Bloody Mary garnishes used to be pretty basic: a celery stick, olives, maybe a cocktail shrimp or two. Then came bacon strips and mini cheeseburgers. And now, well, look at this bloody monster, served up by O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. It’s topped with a slightly precarious looking tower of garnishes including popcorn, bacon, peanuts, beans, sausage, a soft pretzel, nachos, cheesburger sliders, a hot dog, pickles, crackers, cheese curd, and a Brewers flag. If this doesn’t cure your hangover (and give you a different kind of stomach ache), nothing will. [Neatorama]

I’m a big fan of any socially acceptable way to eat cake for breakfast, and these Sunday morning treats come in so many forms: lemon ricotta, oatmeal pumpkin, stuffed Nutella, peach coconut, chocolate banana, whiskey maple(?!).

Pizza. It’s pretty much the most important thing ever. But for the intrepid people of Italy — birthplace of modern pizza culture — pizza may go the way of the dodo. Okay, not really, but there is a vital shortage of dough and sauce guys in Italy.
According to reports from the Italian business federation, the country’s short around 6,000 pizza makers. Of late, they’ve had to cull pizza-making talent from abroad, and many pizza operations are now overseen by people with no formal pizza training. Keep reading »
I recently started making my own energy bars, and I’m blown away by how easy they are. I make mine with coconut, peanut butter, buckwheat, flax seeds, and whatever other healthy, protein-packed ingredients I find hiding in my cabinets. Most energy bar recipes are no-bake (just stir everything together on the stove top) and some just require a quick spin in the food processor and a couple hours in the fridge–they seriously couldn’t be easier to make. And in keeping with our travel theme this week, they’re perfect for snacking on airplanes or long car rides. Want to get in on the energy bar action? Click through for seven delicious, healthy recipes…
It’s really crazy what they’re doing with chicken these days. I mean, does this new Rip’n Chick’n from Popeyes look even remotely like something that came from a living creature? These look like bizarre fried finger tentacles of chicken, just waiting to brush your leg or arm. Which is to say, they are disgusting, and will probably be very popular. [Popeyes]
