263 Reasons Why You Should Probably Skip That Milkshake

That’s one reason for every gram of sugar in a large Baskin Robbins Chocolate Oreo Shake. If that doesn’t deter you from sucking one down, let me call your attention to the 59 grams of saturated fat. Oh, and the fact that it somehow contains crustaceans. What? [Digg] Keep reading »

Pancakes, I Am Your Father

I am not recommending that you purchase this spatula just because it happens to be shaped like Darth Vader, although that is pretty awesome. No, I am recommending that you purchase this spatula because I happened to get it for my brother-in-law, a pretty well-known chef, and he recently told me that it is the best spatula he has ever owned. Seriously, he says many of the guys in his kitchen have gotten one.

AC/DC Rocks The Wine Making Biz

Today is your very lucky day. Because you can go to your local wine store and ask, “Hey, do you have any bottles of AC/DC?” and they will not look at you like you are crazy. Yep, the rockers from down under have released their own line of vino. Which I find strange because, when I think of AC/DC, the corresponding alcohol isn’t wine— rum and coke or Jagermeister shots seem more fitting for the guys who made their mark rocking out in shorts. But hey, they’ve tried to edge up the product by giving the varieties names like “Highway to Hell” Cabernet Sauvignon and “You Shook Me All Night Long” Muscat. Buying birthday gifts for my guy friends just got a lot easier. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

A “True Blood” Cookbook?

I know what you’re thinking when you watch “True Blood.” As you watch Eric and Sookie doing it over and over again in the forest, as you witness the bloody gore that occurs after a vampire is staked, as you see that raccoon decomposing in the credits—you’re thinking, Man, I wish there was a cookbook based on this show. I’m starving! Well, your wishes have been answered! Apparently, a “True Blood” cookbook, not endorsed by HBO, will be in bookstores next year. The recipes will be inspired by characters, for exampled “Bill’s Bite Me Biscuits” and “Sookie’s Steamy Crawfish Etoufee.” Which actually does sound good. Here’s hoping this thing will stick to Bloody Marys rather than veering into actual blood territory. What’s next, a cookbook based on “Hoarders”? Shudder. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Tries Fried Butter, Disses Barack Obama

“I’m excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc. I’ll enjoy them in honor of those who’d rather make us just ‘eat our peas.’”

Sarah Palin writes to her supporters to tell them that she is heading to the Iowa State Fair and plans on chowing down on all sorts of delicious foods that unfortunately give you a heart attack in 20 seconds flat. So who is this pea-pusher she’s referring to?” Why, Barack Obama, of course. While trying to broker the debt limit deal, he said, “I will not sign a 30-day or a 60-day or a 90- day extension. That is just not an acceptable approach. So we might as well do it now; pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas.” Wow, I love that Palin is running on a pro deep fryer platform. [People]

Angelina Jolie Says Pax And Maddox Love Eating Crickets

“[Crickets are] their favorite thing. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn’t stop. I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from eating too many.”

Angelina Jolie explains that Pax and Maddox have more adventurous palates than most kids their age and absolutely love the taste of crickets. Well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Last year, Angie said that she was into eating cockroaches. I wonder when the kids will graduate to bigger bugs? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
