Super Bowl Party Giveaway: 17th Street BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork

As a child, we were at some form of a hybrid bbq/karaoke joint with my younger cousins. We wanted to sing great balls of fire, the owner had another idea. We didn't get served until we sang twinkle, twinkle little star. Singing good our supper finally paid off in tears from my cousin, Grace, and bbq ribs for everyone else.

Cook the Book: 'Good Eats: The Early Years'

My favorite thanksgiving story happened last year. My uncle haphazardly ran the kitchen that morning and ended up burning the stuffing and dipping his fingers into my aunt's pumpkin pie for a taste. The stuffing was delicious and the pie was just as good. It made for a great laugh and great story.

My biggest baking disaster was a green cake. My friend's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day so I thought it would be fun to make a green cake for him. The cake was great but the color was a little unappetizing. Some things just aren't better with a hint of green.

Is a Girl Scout Cookie Still the Same with a Different Name?

Today began the ever dreaded/loved time of year in my office where Girl Scout cookies come and take over.

In drooling... I mean looking over this year's order form, I noticed something slightly wrong. Has anyone else noticed the name change of my beloved cookies?

Thin mints are now still thin mints, but Samoas are now "Caramel DeLights" and Tagalongas are now "Peanut Butter Patties."

Anyone else notice/saddened this change in their areas?
