GUYS. The “Game of Thrones” finale is THIS WEEKEND. How did the season go by this fast? Why must we wait another year until we get our fix of our favorite Westerosis?
OK, to be fair, I started binge-watching “Game of Thrones” in the beginning of April this year. I’ve been sadly skeptical of the show for the last four years, which I found out was a mistake as soon as I started watching. I’m so addicted that I binged the first three seasons over the course of two weeks and then, not being able to wait a week between episodes, started reading the Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m already halfway through book three. SAVE ME. Keep reading »
TablehoppingNY just released a list of the most expensive dishes in New York City and I am honestly disturbed that anyone would pay $25,000 for an ice cream sundae. Like a twisted version of the glow-in-the-dark figurine at the bottom of your Frosted Fruit Loops, the $25K sundae at Serendipity 3 sits on top of a sticky 18-karat gold and diamond bracelet. All I can say is, for $25,000, this sundae better turn your shit gold. [TablehoppingNY]
To all those people who say “I can’t cook/bake!” Repeat after me: Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect. The #1 mistake I see kitchen beginners making is trying recipes that sound awesome but put an amateur in way over their heads – too many ingredients, too much set-up, too much chopping, too much multitasking, too many judgment calls that require a higher skill level in the kitchen. Diving into a complicated recipe without much experience is a surefire way to convince yourself that you’re destined for a life of takeout.
But have no fear! Here are ten recipes you CAN make, and that will make a foundation for most breakfasts, dinners, and desserts you’ll learn to make in the future. There’s only a few ingredients in each recipe, most of which you probably already have, and you’ll only need very basic kitchen equipment. Bon appétit! Keep reading »
Sure, you can buy all sorts of crazy crap online, but when it comes to walking into a store and making a purchase, America just doesn’t hold a candle to what other countries are packing. Find out what crazy products we here in the U.S. are missing out on Cracked…
If you’re anything like me, you realize all your fruit is ripe at the same time and put everything you have into a bowl and call it fruit salad. Well, turns out, technically it’s not fruit salad. It is a bowl of chopped up fruit. Oh. Real fruit salad is so yummy because it contains a “dressing” to enhance the fruit combinations. I recently attended a wedding and had the most amazing watermelon and tomato fruit salad! Who would have guessed? Not I. Let’s all up our fruit salad game and try one of these recipes.
Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, “Everything I’ve ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich”? That’s what happened to me yesterday after I made this sandwich. It’s vegetarian but packed full of flavor thanks to fresh mozzarella, crispy turnips (which are in season a lot of places right now and surprisingly versatile to cook with), and a spicy aioli. Damnit I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. Gotta go make another one now. Read on for the super easy recipe! Keep reading »
