This certainly would have made my pecan pie even more knock-your-socks-off. Did you know that there is such a thing as alcoholic whipped cream? Two companies—Cream and Whipped Lightning—are currently selling this product in the Boston area. It come in flavors like chocolate, vanilla, caramel, raspberry and orange and contains 15 to 18 percent alcohol by volume.
Lots of peeps are worried about “whipaholics”—and no, I did not make that name up—because they obviously appeal to kids and teens. But I’m a bit less concerned. Keep reading »
Some prefer their turkey day drunkenness to transpire on the couch with a dozen relatives and a football game. Others prefer their alcohol shot directly in the bird. Georgi Vodka and several New York City restaurants have infused a turkey with five different types of vodka and prepared a 100-proof vodka gravy to serve on the side. The flavors of peach, cherry, orange, lemon and apple vodka render this recipe slightly less disgusting, but not by much. Keep reading »
If you think Four Loko will put hair on your chest (or maybe even kill you), consider the Dieci. Brooklyn coffee shop The Pulp & The Bean began serving the drink that they are calling “coffee porn in a cup” and “20 ounces of just thunder” this week. The Dieci is 10 shots of pure espresso. Yes, TEN. And it’s not for the faint of heart … literally. Doctors have warned that you should not attempt to imbibe the Dieci unless you are young and healthy. Um, I don’t drink anything with the word “die” in its name (yeah, I know “dieci” is 10 in Italian, but still), but I’ll look forward to the funny videos of daring people doing asinine crap while high on espresso.

When you’re looking to trim your budget, it can be easy to cut down on what you spend on food. You can stop getting that latte every morning on your way to work and eat like you’re still in college. (Ramen, anyone?) But what if eating well is a priority, too? Elizabeth Somer, registered dietitian and author of Eat Your Way to Happiness, offered these tips for keeping both your diet and your checkbook balanced. Keep reading »
The way to a woman’s heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone‘s heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger? Crushed candy cane, candy corn, or gummy bears? Chocri offers over 10 billion possible combinations, and you can even customize your chocolate bar with a message like “I love you” or “happy birthday.” If that set-up doesn’t just melt your heart, then nothing will.
Stuck as to where you stand in the cake versus pie debate? Now you don’t have to choose! A Philadelphia bakery has created the pumpple cake — an apple pie and a pumpkin pie baked inside a vanilla and chocolate cake “fused together and surrounded by buttercream frosting.” The whole concoction clocks in at 15 lbs. and 1,800 calories, but the owners of the Flying Monkey bakery say that it ideally feeds four people. Just four?! More importantly, how does it taste? Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb got to taste the dessert on “The Today Show” this morning and Kathie Lee described it as “obscene — that is delicious.” Of course, she was probably drunk.
