Consider yourselves (and your stomachs) warned: The end result of clicking through this slideshow is utterly ravenous hunger. Even if you just ate. You will want to eat more, specifically every single taco recipe contained within. There are steak tacos! Pork tacos and chicken tacos and mushroom tacos! Tacos for vegans and vegetarians! And there will be tacos all up in your mouth for the foreseeable future because you will want to eat them ALL.
Alas, our days of ignorant bliss about the contents of Hot Pockets are over. Giant Foods has issued a massive recall of Philly Steak & Cheese Hot Pockets, because they may have been filled with “diseased and unsound” meat from a processing plant that evaded FDA inspections. As gross as the exact details are, is anyone really shocked at the revelation that a product called a “hot pocket” is made with sub-par meat? I think comedian Jim Gaffigan said it best: “What was the idea behind Hot Pockets? Was there a guy in a marketing meeting somewhere, like, ‘Hey I got an idea: How about we take a Pop-Tart and fill it with really nasty meat? You could cook it in a sleeve thing, and you could dunk it in the toilet.’”
Seriously though, if you have Philly Steak & Cheese Hot Pockets in your freezer, DO NOT EAT THEM. Take them back to the store, get your money refunded, and then watch Jim’s entire Hot Pockets routine, which I’ve posted below for posterity’s sake. Keep reading »

The single most essential item in my kitchen might have to be the large cast iron pan my mom got me for Christmas. I’ve used it to cook nearly every day since I got it, and while I knew it was going to come in handy for cooking protein, I didn’t realize that a cast iron pan is actually ideal for cooking a whole meal. Anything that cuts down on dishes — my least favorite household chore after cleaning the toilet — is aces by me. After the jump, check out a one-pan recipe for one of my favorite meals to cook for dinner after a long day at work, roasted lemon-y chicken with potatoes and broccolini. Oh, and to wash it all down, a sweet and tangy spiked blue raspberry lemonade. NOMMMM. Keep reading »
Atlantic City, New Jersey, has always been known as the place where your most impossible dreams can come true (or is that just me?), but this week’s Bacon Week Festival is taking the adventures to new heights. The festival is taking over the Tropicana Casino and Resort with goodies like bacon milkshakes, bacon toothpaste and and bacon-infused vodka.
For your Valentine’s Day needs, the festival includes bacon covered in chocolate and shaped like roses as well as — wait for it — bacon cupcakes. Let’s be real, that cupcake sounds like the highlight of the whole week. Attendee James Sanders did us the favor of explaining the layers of a satisfying bacon-chomping experience: Keep reading »
Sipping tea from a proper tea cup always feels so relaxing, cozy, and a little glamorous (even though I’m usually wearing my boyfriend’s basketball shorts and watching trashy reality shows during my “tea time”). A pretty cup and saucer not only encourage you to take your tea time a bit more seriously (pinkies up, ladies!), but they look so lovely displayed on the counter when not in use that they truly become part of your home decor. Win-win, I say! Click through to check out 10 beautiful specimens…
