Homemade Pizza Rolls

I love a challenge. When I was urged to create a recipe for homemade pizza rolls for a Super Bowl snack, I knew it'd be an interesting project. They come with the same warning: this filling is molten hot. More

Video: 'Saturday Night Live' Jeno's Pizza Rolls Commercial Sketch

Saturday Night Live finally made the video available for "I Am Your Mother," the Jeno's Pizza Rolls commercial skit that aired on the April 11 episode. It stars Zac Efron, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen, and its premise is that they're all shooting a commercial for the pizza snack.

And you know what? Those suckers hit the spot. They're good, in that good/bad way the tastiest processed, politically incorrect... More

Video: Surreal 1960s Jeno's Pizza Roll Commercial

While doing research for the previous post, I came across this crazy commercial for Jeno's Pizza Rolls: Taken out of context, one which I'm too young to have lived through originally, the commercial is completely insane and makes almost no sense. Until you find out that it's the work of Stan Freberg and is a parody of a commercial for Lark cigarettes. Who knew they were doing meta back then? Here's the Lark commercial (after the jump):...
