Foodisphere Erupts Over Paula Deen Diabetes Announcement

"I just want to know how Paula Deen is going to have time for this... Doesn't she already have a lot on her plate?

Is she going to tell us that this drug makes diabetes a "piece of cake" or "easy as pie?"

She is the perfect woman to read the side effects since she sugar-coats everything.

In summary, unhealthy food was Paula Deen's bread and butter, getting paid for diabetes is just icing on the cake! " strum40

Serious Entertaining: The Bachelor Watching Party

"The exceptional cheesiness of this show demands a formidable cheese plate. Some mild fresh mozzarella (perhaps to represent Ben's blandness?), a sharp cheddar (at least as sharp as the girls' clavicles), a bowl of salty feta (flavored with the tears of the rejected... so many tears) and a funky smelly roquefort (in the spirit of the fact that this show stinks, but in an awesome way.)" cheftastic

The Best Way to Eat Popeye's Fried Chicken

"So a party favorite are my Chicken & Wafflettes.

I usually buy an 8 pc all-spicy mixed bunch from Popeye's. I also get a large mashed potatoes (with the gravy on the side). By the time I get back to the house, the chicken has steamed enough in the box making it easy to pull it off the bone. Separate the meat from the skin and reserve the skin for later. The meat gets coarsely chopped and thrown into a stand mixer with the masher and gravy to form a loose chicken-studded mashed topping.

The topping gets piped/spooned/glopped on top of an unbaked eggo mini, and then finally a piece of the skin gets applied on top. These suckers go in the oven to cook the waffle and crisp the skin. When all's said and done, it gets topped with a homemade maple butter (which is just melted butter mixed with maple syrup), and strewn on top.

Yes. It is a billion calories. Yes there's beaucoups cholesterol. Yes, I regret nothing." Julian
