Food  Cake in a Can

The Food Ministry just made my week. Here’s why: sometimes blogging is a tough gig because, well, I don’t always have something to say. There’s only so many cat pictures the internet can share before someone (usually me) starts rolling their eyes. Except for posts on animals being jerks or, that silly-looking ...

Food  How I learned to love sardines

I’ll go out on a limb here and guess that most of you eat canned tuna but not canned sardines. Maybe that’s because you’re scared of the bones, or maybe you think it’s gross that you can tell you’re eating ...

Food  #LobsterRumble: The ULTIMATE Lobster Roll Competition

Food  Pumpkin spice lattes that won’t kill you

We’re all aware that every autumn, people go nuts when Starbucks brings back its pumpkin spice latte. Almost as consistent is the outcry by more health-conscious types that DEAR GOD, THAT CRAP WILL KILL YOU!! Usually they use the word “chemicals” ...

Food  Anti-Pumpkin Pumpkin Gingerbread

I’ve never really liked pumpkin. Whether it was scooping out the stinky flesh of my soon-to-be Cthulhu jack-o-lantern, or that time I thought I was having sweet potato pie at Thanksgiving and was evilly tricked in to a spoonful of ...

Food  Your pancakes are boring

Think you make a good stack of flapjacks? That’s cool, but we’re guessing they still look like circles. They might be food, but chances are they ain’t art. Maybe you’ve seen the video of a pancake artist making flapjacks that resemble The ...

Food  The world’s richest burger

Want to get your restaurants some press? Come up with a hamburger covered in gold leaf and caviar that, with tax, costs just under $2,000. In a gratuitous publicity stunt, Honky Tonk restaurant in west London’s Chelsea area reportedly took ...
