Dream Or Nightmare: The Macaroni And Cheese Martini

I'm Dating A Cheeseman
The pros and cons of dating a cheesemonger. Read More »

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the macaroni and cheese martini. Unlike other strange martinis we’ve seen in the past (I’m looking at you, pho cocktail), this drink doesn’t aim to replicate the flavors of mac and cheese with various liquors and spices; it’s actually just a martini glass full of smoked cheddar macaroni and cheese that is served with a shot glass of vodka to drizzle over the top. I think it sounds delicious (like, I’m not even that big of a drinker, but I would binge drink mac and cheese if given the chance). Would you like to try it for yourself? Buy a ticket to San Diego and make a reservation at Donovan’s Steak & Chop House, where this crazy concoction is currently being served. Cheers! [Boing Boing]

What Would You Do If A 7-Foot KFC Bucket Randomly Appeared In Your Yard?

“I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside.”

Seriously, have you ever read a better opening line to any story, ever? This gem of a quote comes from a woman named Aleena Headrick, who did indeed discover a 7-foot KFC bucket in her Waynesboro, Georgia, yard. Whereas I would have assumed it was a not-so-subtle message from hungry aliens and retreated to my underground bunker, goodhearted Headrick decided to share the strange scene on social media. “Too often we just need something to laugh about,” she told reporters, “so I put it on Facebook and told [my friends] that I would bring chicken to the next potluck.” Keep reading »

Do you eat normal cakes and find yourself wishing they resembled human flesh? If so, you probably need to seek urgent professional help, but once you’re in an established therapy routine, you can always call up the creatively twisted bakers at Conjurer’s Kitchen to make your creepy confection dreams come true. Yep, the same people who brought us edible chocolate baby heads have now created this amazingly detailed (and edible!) vanilla cake version of Buffalo Bill’s skin suit from the movie “Silence of the Lambs.” With black cherry filling, naturally. As impressed as I am with the artistry, I might need to add a new category to the terms of my online detox: no more desserts that look like murder victims! [Neatorama]

Awesome, Slightly Terrifying Dessert Of The Day: Pop Rocks Firecracker Cupcakes

Firecracker Cupcakes

I’m not sure we should be encouraging anyone to put firecrackers in their mouth (I’m sure there was a 2001 episode of “Jackass” that already did that), but if you are yearning to munch on a firework without, you know, dying, you might want to whip up a batch of these firecracker cupcakes. They don’t just look like the real thing — they’re also filled with Pop Rocks to cause a mini explosion in your mouth. How festive! Happy 4th of July! [She Knows via Neatorama]

An Open Letter To Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter

Dear Cookie Butter,

I wasn’t aware of your existence until I was standing in line at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and noticed a display of jars with a sign that said “LIMIT TWO PER CUSTOMER.” I went to investigate but was stopped by a middle-aged man with a handlebar mustache wearing a Gryffindor t-shirt. Apparently sensing my curiosity, he held his hand up and shook his head. “You don’t want to buy that,” he said ominously.

“Why?” I asked. “What is it?”

“It’s cookie butter,” he said, “and once you start buying it, you will never stop.” Keep reading »

chocolate peanut butter cup beer

This may be a big week for ga -rights activists, America, and, like, history. But it’s also a big week for all us chocolate peanut butter lovers out there. That’s right, Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter has descended from the heavens (or Abington, Maryland) and graced us with its sweet, sudsy presence. For a measly $10 at DuClaw Brewing, you can get buzzed on the chocolately-peanut-buttery libation that actually tastes and smells like a chocolate peanut cup, according to Uncrate. No word on where else in the States it’s hopping (heh) up next, but sweet baby Jesus, we hope it’s in ours. [Uncrate]

A lot of the people I know who are into pho — which, for the uninitiated, is a Vietnamese noodle soup — are, like, really into pho. They eat it four or five times a week, are constantly on the hunt for the best hole-in-the-wall pho restaurant, and love nothing more than correcting people who pronounce it wrong. I mean, I love me some pho, but I have a hard time keeping up with them. For my pho-obsessed friends, the new pho-flavored cocktail dreamed up by a Philadelphia bartender might be the holy grail of alcoholic beverages. It’s made with gin or vodka, lime juice, a blend of pho broth seasonings (including charred ginger, onions, and star anise), basil, mint, and cilantro, and garnished with pickled bean sprouts and Sriracha sauce. For non-pho fanatics, though, I’m guessing this cocktail will be something of an acquired taste. Which camp are you in? [Neatorama]

Breast Milk Lollipops

Over a year ago, I was helping a friend out on a screenplay about a guy who uses his wife’s breast milk to make fancy pants dessert. What a ridiculous premise, hahaha, right? Well, maybe not entirely. A sweets company in Austin called Lollyphile has come out with a breast milk-flavored lollipop for $2.50 each. The lollipops are actually vegan, which means they aren’t actually made with real human breast milk, but real human breast milk was used by “flavor specialists” in order to create the faux flavoring. ”We are endlessly grateful to all the mothers who kept sharing their breast milk with our flavor specialists until we were able to candify it,” Lollyphile’s website says. Listen, I’ve tasted breast milk before — yes, as a baby, but also as an adult — and it kind of just tastes like watery almond milk. Meh. I’ll stick with Tootsie Pops. But what about you?

Ladies And Gentlemen, Meet The Lasagna-Bun Burger

Just when you thought people had run out of ways to dress up a simple hamburger, something like the lasagna-bun burger comes along. Created by Philadelphia restaurant PYT, the lasagna-bun burger forgoes the classic burger bun for something a bit richer: two thick slices of deep-friend lasagna. The generously portioned beef patty in the middle is seasoned like a meatball and topped with provolone cheese and marinara sauce, and the massive finished product is served with a side of fries, obviously. My mind is kind of disgusted by this, but it’s hard to hear my rational thoughts over the incessant growling of my stomach. I’ve gotta get myself to Philly. [Huffpo]
