10 Food Souvenirs from Germany

@mignonette, Im not sure where you are located so this may not be very helpful. But here in Canada you can get Kinder Eggs year round in the drugstores. So if you have any Canadian friends you could have a boatload of them shipped to you from Canada.

Paleo-izing recipes

Although I agree posting you resume is tacky!

Paleo-izing recipes

They see em trollin' they hatein'.

People in the "Talk" area will trash you to no end, if you even mention "healthy" or "diet". Even if people are just curious or trying to be helpful about healthy options.

People sometimes are just not to nice..
I guess that's just the nature of anonymous posting on the interwebs. :)


HELP! I cant eat meat

I work with a gal who actually can not eat meat its a condition (see link),

You seem to have a mental block for meat, I went through the same issue when I was a teenager and even sometimes now I will have a week where I can't tolerate it at all.

It may just go away on its own with time, you should be able to work your way back into normal meat, try boneless skinless chicken, and bonless steak, cut any extra fat off. Maybe even cut into small pieces and use in stir fry.

This is what I did and Im back to eating chicken wings and ribs like a BOSS :P

So I made up this recipe.

6 Off-Menu Dessert Mashups at McDonald's

I can remember back in the 90's McDee's briefly had apple pie a la mode on the menu, here in Canada. They would put the apple pie in a little square tray then top with soft serve and caramel sauce :)

A baked pasta dish to complete my dinner party?

I would make a baked gnocchi dish, I use a tomato pasta sauce and an alfredo mixed together (use bottled if you don't have time to make it up). I boil the gnocchi until it floats, put in in a baking dish, pour on the sauces sprinkle with your fav spices... I use cayenne pepper or ghost pepper spice, then smother it in mozza and cheddar. Bake until the cheese is melted. Easy!!

The Serious Eats Doughnut Style Guide

You missed the Dutch Ollie Ballen :) Ummm fried dough with raisins or blueberrys with powdered sugar.. served warm!

Bacon Bourbon Brownies

Bacon Bourbon Brownies - from Food in my Beard, originally from Food and Wine - makes 25 brownies

1/2 cup pecans, toasted
1/2 pound sliced bacon
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 stick plus 2 Tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp bourbon
4 eggs
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup bourbon

Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray the paper with vegetable spray.

In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp, 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels and let cool; reserve 3 tablespoons of the fat. Finely chop the bacon.

In a saucepan, combine both chocolates with the butter and stir over very low heat, until melted; scrape into a large bowl. Beat in both sugars with the reserved 3 tablespoons of bacon fat. Beat in the 3 Tbsp of bourbon. Add the eggs and salt and beat until smooth. Sift the cocoa and flour into the bowl and beat until blended.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the bacon and pecans on top. Lightly press bacon and pecans into batter.

Bake for about 50 minutes, until the brownies are set around the edges but slightly wobbly in the center; a toothpick inserted into the center should have some batter clinging to it. Immediately pour 1/4 cup bourbon over top of the brownies.

Transfer the pan to a rack and let the brownies cool completely. Cut into squares or rectangles and serve.

Where are you posting from in 2012?

Saint John, New Brunswick. Canada :P

Low cal Low carb segment!

I would love to see someone do a healthy eating segment. Something Low cal and low carb at the same time with recipes or maybe someone doing a 6 week weight loss challenge, eating out at restaurants every meal and proving that its all about the choices we make and that eating out can be healthy and can be delicious at the same time.

Blue cheese

I've noticed that blue cheese seems to be a pretty big deal south of the Canadian border, so I decided to go out and try it. I picked up a small chunk from the deli and I picked up a blue cheese dressing for hot wings.

WOW all I can say is YUK! Personally, I can only compare it to the smell of latex paint... if I knew what latex paint tasted like I bet it would be darn close to blue cheese!!

Does anyone else hate the stuff??? Like me :D

Or.. if you love it:
Whats the big deal with Blue Cheese?! :)

Bacon Bourbon Brownies

Anyone have Bacon Bourbon Brownies before??! YUM!!

These are amazing, I thought for sure they would be gross, but to my surprise, they were the best brownies I've ever had.

Anyone else try any interesting food combo's or have a recipe they would like to share??
