Last Week's Poll Results: What's the Perfect Breakfast Sandwich?

Last week we asked you to tell us what makes your perfect breakfast sandwich. We created polls for each element: the bread, the egg style, the cheese, and the meat. After calculating the winners for each, we have concocted the "perfect" composite: it comes on an English muffin with a fried egg, cheddar, and (uh oh..) bacon and sausage are tied for the meat vote! Which breakfast meat is superior? Will this question ever be answered? Probably not. But we know that ham didn't win. More

Last Week's Poll Results: Do You Take Photos of Your Food Before Eating?

Last week we asked: Do You Take Photos of Your Food Before Eating? The majority, with 35%, went to "Sometimes," but "Just When It's Photogenic" was not far behind with 33%. Only 11% said "Always."

This Week's Poll Results: A Cheeseless Pizza Is Still a Pizza

A cheeseless pizza is still a pizza. So sayeth 58 percent of respondents in the "Is It Still Pizza If It Doesn't Have Cheese?" poll. I liked foolishpoolish's take on the matter.

An additional 14 percent said they used it to sort of sop up whatever oil or grease and sauce was left on the plate, which I will take the liberty of interpreting as almost the same thing in that there's no introduction...

This Week's Poll Results: Burning Questions, Sort of Answered

That was therapeutic, wasn't it? I think this week's little group session on "charring" vs. "burned" helped us all work through the issue and come to a better understanding of carbonized crust, of ourselves, and of each other. Though folks in the gimme-char (72%) and the char-it-not (29%)* camps may never see eye to eye, I think the discussion helped us all see the others' arguments, thanks to lots of great insight in the comments. * Yes, I'm aware that adds up to 101%. I think the polling software rounds up with a hand that's a little too heavy.... More
