12 Creepy, Delicious Halloween Party Treats

Remember when they used to bring out the gummy worm and crumbled Oreo “dirt” cake at elementary school Halloween parties and it was, like, the greatest thing ever? I might have been particularly enthusiastic because I was eating a lot of actual dirt in my day-to-day life (my brothers and I used to play “restaurant” out in the garden and it was considered quite rude not to take a bite of a freshly-made mud pie), and Oreo dirt had a much more pleasant flavor. Anyway, the point is that just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t still cook up some spooky Halloween-themed food. I found recipes for everything from puff pastry intestines to shrunken head cider (and check out the Dexter blood slide candies up on the top right! So cool). Click through to check ‘em out…

Help! I Eat To Live & He Lives To Eat

Bill and I are a lot alike in many ways. We enjoy the same music and movies; we have a great sex life; and we share similar political and spiritual beliefs. But, when it comes to our eating habits, we are like oil and water. He’s oil; I’m water, and we would not make good salad dressing.

In fact, he hates salad, unless it’s meat. I’m a vegetarian, and his idea of vegetables is French fries with ketchup. “Well, the school board says it’s a vegetable,” he says. … and I’m a food and nutrition professional!

This used to drive me absolutely crazy. Then I realized, none of us has a perfect “I agree-with-you-100-percent-of-the-time” relationship. There’s always going to be something that bugs us about the other person. Read more…

How Dating A Foodie Changed My Life

We’ve all heard the expression “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” But for John and me, food was the quickest way to our first argument. He said I didn’t eat enough of it, and he didn’t mean portion size.

“How can you live in New York City and not try new foods?” John asked on our fourth date, when we’d gone out for pizza. I told him the city was more than a collection of restaurants to me. “I eat to live,” I said frostily. This had always been a good way to shut people up when they said I was too picky. John sighed, “You’re really missing out.”

Having different palates—mine mostly limited to foods children like, John’s overrun with ever-evolving flavors and cuisines—wasn’t a dealbreaker. But I know other couples might not agree. Read more…

Pumpkin-palooza! 15 Recipes For Pumpkin Desserts, Drinks, And Treats

So, at this point I’ve done quite a few recipe roundups, for all kinds of culinary indulgences from crazy-delicious cookies to gooey macaroni and cheese, and I can honestly say none of them has triggered such dramatic, drooling side effects as this pumpkin-palooza. I pored over pumpkin recipes with my mouth hanging open, every once in awhile yelling at my boyfriend to come into my office, grunting and gesturing at a photo of chocolate pumpkin marble cake or pumpkin caramel bread pudding, at which point he would sit down next to me with his mouth hanging open and we would both just stare at my computer screen, a low “Mmmmm” emanating from our throats. Pumpkin, you guys. It’s way better than porn.

Also, see the photo up there on the left? Those are pumpkin pie vodka shots. Yeah. Click through to get all the delicious pumpkin recipes you’ll need for fall….

YUM!
Get your sugar fix from an ATM!

I want to take a moment to bow down to Candace Nelson, creator of Sprinkles cupcakes, judge on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” and now, the inventor of the Cupcake ATM. Candace, you are a goddess. The ingenious idea allegedly came to her when she was pregnant and having “crazy cravings” in the middle of the night and had to get up and make herself a cupcake.

I am not and have never been pregnant, but I am a sugar worshipper. OK, sugar addict with a cookie dough/chocolate/frozen yogurt/frosting fetish.”Crazy cravings” are something I’ve been experiencing my entire life. Yes, I was that 10-year-old who snuck into the fridge in the middle of the night and ate all the frosting off my brother’s leftover birthday cake. I’m not proud of this, but it’s the truth. Luckily, I’ve learned not to indulge in this level of sugar binging as an adult, but the crazy sugar cravings still happen to me and the worst is when I’m having one and nothing is open.

The Sexiest Restaurants In The World

At the recently opened Robot Restaurant in Kabukicho, one of Tokyo’s best-known red light districts, diners can watch bikini-clad go-go dancers perform or sit in giant, scantily-clad, custom-made female robot chairs as they enjoy their meals. I’m not sure what’s on the menu. Something that robots like to munch on, I presume. I’m picturing freeze-dried food for some reason. Bikinis and robots — a winning combination? Well, yes, if it’s a more sensual dining experience you’re in search of. [Vancouver Sun]

A lot of people see things in their chicken nuggets. Like George Washington or Jesus. Even though those unique nuggets both auctioned off for thousands of dollars, this chicken specimen is far more magical.

“So I was eating my chicken strips when all of a sudden … you guessed it … unicorn,” said the Tumblr user who discovered the mythical, chicken creature. No word on what fast food joint this one-of-a-kind piece of poultry flew out of.

See! Unicorns DO exist. Even if they’re made of pink slime. I can’t wait to see how much money this guy fetches. [Huffington Post]
