10 Things to Do with Peeps

I'm just waiting for a Peeps ice cream flavor... choco covered peeps would be a good mix-in methinks

Taste Test: Cabbage Kimchi

zomg korean pride!

My favorite type of kimchi is actually the cubed radish crunchy and refreshing.

I actually hateeeeeee Sunja's. It was the official kimchi supplier in college, probably because no one else sold kimchi up in the wilds of NH.

Long Island City: For All Your 24-Ounce Burger Needs, Head to M. Wells Diner

what a beautiful hand model in that picture... :)

i really liked the burger, even more so the next day when i reheated it in the oven. and those ONION RINGS! saltiest onion rings i've ever had, but by that i mean just a good touch of tasty.

i still don't really believe they flip it with jsut a regular spatula!

Shamrock Shake Sightings: Now Out in NYC


now it seems like they're everywhere... I will definitely have to go try one.

Barcelona food/restaurant recommendations

Repeating some reccs I know, but these are some of the places that were definitely worth the time and money.

-Cal Pep - tapas - just make sure to go maybe 20 minutes before the restaurant opens and you'll be seated immediately once they're actually open
-Cinc Sentits - modern Catalan - expensive, but the restaurant is tiny, beautiful, and intimate
-Paco Meralgo - tapas
-Escriba - really delicious pastries/desserts
-Tapac24 - tapas - also convenient location near Passeig de Gracia
-in la boqueria - Pinotxo and Universal
-Can Paixano or El Xampanyet for cheapo cava and greasy, yummy nibbles - both can get terribly crowded though at night

Ed Levine's Serious Diet, Week 92: What Happened to Caffeine-Free Diet Coke?

Oh gosh Ed. You're just like my parents! There were always cases of the stuff chilled in the garage when I was growing up.

Do You Have a Favorite Mustard?

Fox Hollow Farms mustard! da beeeeeeeeeeeest

Snapshots from Paris: Lobster Sandwiches and Goose Fat Fries at Spring

champers + lobster + goose fat = perfect saturday

wish I was there with you!

Does anyone carry their own condiments around?

I would definitely not think you're strange as my sister does this all the time! She carries tabasco usually, but she has also found packets of sriracha that are super convenient. Once, she also brought her own (cooked) bacon to the cafe she usually goes to get coffee/breakfast since they don't have good bacon :)

Not Technically Food Books, But Books with Good Food Passages

Totally agree with everyone on the Laura Ingalls Wilder books... I've always wanted to try roasted pig's tail after I read the description in the first book, Little House in the Big Woods. Blowing up the pig's bladder always sounded really fun too!

Ed Levine's Serious Diet, Week 82: Peanut Butter Portion Control

I don't lurve the peanut butter so I've never had this problem. It's something about that stick to your mouth thing... why would I want that?! BUT cake? cookies? That's what I really binge on!

How to Make Patbingsu (Korean Shaved Ice)

@HeartofGlass - It's definitely not savory, but it's just lightly sweet. I suppose it actually really depends on how much sweet stuff like the fruit cocktail, condensed milk, bean paste, etc. that you add to it.

@AppleSister, hungryhungryhippo - wow, maybe it's just my family that likes to mix...and everyone else loves not mixing!

How to Make Patbingsu (Korean Shaved Ice)

Yes! I thought it was a perfectly fine consistency and it was super fast, easy to assemble/take apart, and there's no real cleaning necessary.

Dessert Fail: Raspberry Beignets from The Little Owl

@intheyearofthepig - I understand that a beignet is not exactly a doughnut, but I find that it's a loose and flexible term in NYC. I do like true beignets, but this was nearly inedible and I imagine no one would like an incredibly tough anything for dessert.

Best Raw Oysters in NYC

re: Wild Edibles - they have a great deal of something like a dozen oysters for $12 between 3-6 pm

chopt'd, toss'd, stress'd!!!

My favorite from Tossed is the Cobb Salad, but with the blue cheese on the side because I think they add too much for my taste. Also, love the honey dijon dressing.

Tasting Starbucks 'New and Improved' Items

"The cookies ranged from ehhh to scrumpdiddleumptious." Stopped by a Starbucks lately? You may have noticed, or tasted, something new. In an effort to take on a more wholesome image and win back customers, the company has introduced a new and improved selection of food items under the campaign "Real food. Simply delicious." This means a revamping of all their baked goods (no artificial flavors, artificial trans fats, artificial dyes, or high-fructose corn syrup), and the launch of several new items, like the Vivanno smoothie and Protein Plate (cheese, hard-boiled egg, whole-wheat bagel, grapes, apple slices, and peanut butter). At a recent media preview, I tasted some of the "improved" baked goods on offer at Starbucks nationwide.... More

How to Make S'meeps: S'mores Plus Peeps

S'meeps? That's right, I went there. S'meeps are the Brangelina of the Peeps world. A classic treat (s'more/Brad Pitt) coupled with a sparkly chick (Peep/Jolie). This is a twist on the traditional s'more in honor of Peep Week and the glut of Peeps in stores everywhere. The s'meeps taste just like s'mores with an extra crunch of sugar and a happy dose of color. Consider making these as doing the rest of the world a favor. What's going to happen to all the Peeps that aren't bought and consumed/melted/frozen/mauled during the Easter season? Do they go to the old Peeps farm over in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania? Are they secretly plotting to take over the world in their Peeps lair? The... More

How to Make Peepshi = Peeps Sushi

Continuing in the grand Peeps Week tradition, here's our offering for any occasion that calls for awesome and fun all at once: "Peepshi," or Peeps sushi. (Note: no fish or seaweed involved.) This lovechild of Easter and Japan takes inspiration from Masaharu Morimoto and Rice Krispies Treats. More

In Videos: Every Jelly Baby Scene in 'Doctor Who'

"I left my jelly babies in the TARDIS.... They're a delicacy I discovered on Earth." Yesterday, we briefly mentioned how the Beatles did not like having candy jelly babies thrown at them while on stage. While poking around YouTube looking at jelly baby experiment videos, I found an awesome compilation of every jelly baby scene in Doctor Who. Along with his out-of-control curly hair and extraloooong scarf, one of the signature quirks of the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) was his love for jelly babies. He offered them to everyone and anyone, including his archenemy and Dalek-creator, Davros. And there's a memorable bit at 4:16 in which the Doctor tries a bluff, telling some primitive-looking warriors, "Now drop your weapons, or... More
