Hawk Krall 22 comments

Next up in our search for America's Best Hot Dog (we've so far told you about the East Coast and down South) is the Midwest, another heavyweight hot dog region where frankfurters were introduced by Austrian immigrants at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Since then, Chicago has rivaled New York as the hot dog center of the universe, although Detroit isn't far behind. More

Hawk Krall 34 comments

So far, we've told you about the East Coast contenders. Now it's time to move down South. Before this journey, the South was a bit of a mystery to us in terms of hot dogs. I had a vague notion of slaw dogs being pretty good, but the region is more often than not overlooked in the hot dog media.The reality is that hot dogs are everywhere below the Mason-Dixon line, as much or more so than other areas considered to be the epicenters of hot doggery. Here are our 16 favorites. More

View Rachael Ray Pizzeria Bracket in a larger map Braciole asked yesterday evening for a list of all 64 pizzerias in the bracket. I've started compiling the list and address info.

Just click that map for a larger version. It's probably an easier way to convey the places' locations in terms of where you may live, anyway.... More

Erin Zimmer 24 comments

First Heidi Klum was a pizza clerk, now Rachael Ray is taking your dirty laundry on the CBS show I Get That a Lot. The show puts celebrities in "normal person" jobs to confuse customers. Hey doesn't that look like that one famous person? Yup, because it is. But we won't tell you and film you looking confused for fun. In this episode, Ray is behind the counter when a mother-daughter pair walks in to drop off their dry cleaning and immediately recognizes her. "Really, honestly, I get it every single day," Ray "swears." Watch the preview clip after the jump.... More

'Every Freaking! Day with Rachell Ray' Parody Book

Robyn Lee 6 comments

If you love being sick of Rachael Ray, you need to get your hands on Every Freaking! Day with Rachell Ray. Nope, it's not a new series from the 30-minute meal goddess—it's a parody book by Elizabeth Hilts, author of the popular Getting in Touch with Your Inner Bitch. Hilt says that Rachael Ray is very easy to parody: "She has a lot of very recognizable mannerisms: talking with her hands, singing to the food, referring to food as an almost human entity." Ray has yet to comment on the parody book. Related Rachael Ray Will Endorse Your Product!
