A Pounda Cruise, Y’all.

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Paula Deen has a cruise, everyone!  It’s $1529 a person!  Included for no extra cost are the Deen Beach Olympics, which I can only imagine is a lot of ham throwing!

Thanks to the illustrious Oliver Thring for unknowingly tipping me off.

A Real Wedgie

“Between two thick slices of white bread, you’ll find a generous filling of diced beef in a tangy tomato and herb sauce, layered with cooked pasta sheets and finished with a creamy cheddar, ricotta and mayonnaise dressing.”

Wow.  Just… wow.

This One’s Just Right

The supertasters wanted salt to the max, up to the point where most people find foods not only very salty but irritating to the mouth. “For them, more is better,” Hayes says, “and Goldilocks was wrong.

Richard Knox on NPR’s For Supertasters, A Desire for Salt is Genetic.

I love the drama in “AND GOLDILOCKS WAS WRONG!”  Puts the salt on my pretzel, it do.

Wake Up, Bacon!

From Fidel Gastro (you better watch out for Slashfood, comrade)—Maple Bacon Morning coffee.

If you read the reviews, of which there are 250, you will see that Rush Limbaugh touts this coffee which should tell you all you need to know right there.

Oh, here’s another review, perhaps this post will go on all day:

I was a little worried about this one. The name scared me. But I really liked the taste. The flavor was mild. It tastes like maple bacon COFFEE, not like you are eating maple flavored bacon. So, if you are looking for an interesting new coffee flavor to try, go for this one. If you are looking for greasy, maple slathered slices of bacon, try the grocery store.

You know what Andy would say.


Bacon for President!

My friend Lilit at The Gloss has been hooking it up with some horrifying and interesting tips lately.  This one is filed under horrifying.  

Please.  Please don’t do this to a birthday cake.  It’s done nothing to you.

Yeah, that’s right.  It’s a White Castle Candle.  Because if you *really* loved cheeseburgers, you would want your whole home to smell like one.
