Survey: What Topping Combination Repulses You the Most?

@ posters above: I love Hawaiian pizza! As for bbq/buffalo chicken pizzas, they aren't great by any measure, but I usually enjoy eating 'em..

I'm not a big fan of jalapenos on pizza (won't say they're repulsive though..)
"Krab" pizza with mayo is probably the only pizza I couldn't bring myself to eat.

Time is a continuous parameter. Your argument is invalid.

Poll: Which Way Do You Slice It?

When I make pizza at home, and nobody is around to judge me (i.e. all the time), I just hold it with both hands, plop myself in front of the computer and slowly eat it like a giant savory cookie while I lolz around on teh interwebz. Everything gets kinda greasy, but it's kinda hard to tell the difference anyway.

Cereal Eats: Mexican vs. American Cereal Showdown

Back in Malaysia, I used to enjoy eating Koko Krunch and Honey Stars as a kid. Both are only available in the South East Asia region AFAIK.

Koko Krunch is a wheat based chocolate cereal; it stays sturdy/crispy in milk and it has a weird convex shape. (pic:

Honey Stars are star shaped, with a hole in the center; they tend to get soggy but they have a nice, strong honey flavor (or at least I remember them that way). (pic:

The title says "Our Favorite Cereal", not a list of unusual cereals.

I'd imagine Leandra will be doing all the 'cerealmongering' in due time.

@Trilby: A pound a day on a low protein diet will result in a lot of lean body mass loss (aka a bad idea). Just sayin', yo.

There's a reason why the medical community uses very low cal, high protein diets for extreme weight loss.

Snapshots from Malaysia: What Is Malaysian Cuisine?

I'm a Penangite! It's so awesome to see you guys covering this; Malaysian cuisine is still not very well represented here in the US compared to say Thai or Vietnamese food..

Considering the hugeASS number of dishes that you can find in Malaysia, that's a pretty good overview, TBH. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Baltimore: As Good as Greek Pies Get at Matthew's Pizza


@Kenji: Will you be reviewing more Baltimore pizza joints or is this the only one?

Baltimore: As Good as Greek Pies Get at Matthew's Pizza

I went there about a month ago with some friends. All I can say is that the pizza didn't make me sad. The ingredients tasted kinda el cheapo grando; the cheese was just a textural element, the sauce didn't stand out at all. I liked the texture of the dough, though :p.

Won't go back/10.

The Food Network's 50 States of Pizza

That taco pizza looks like a total clusterf*ck...

I can only comment on their pick for best pizza in Maryland (Joe Squared). I went there about a month ago with a friend. We had the flag and the soppressata pizza.

The crust tasted like matzah and the flavors/toppings were pretty mediocre. Worst of all, there were literally two crumbs of soppressata on the second pizza, drowned in a sea of olives. At ~$15 for a 10" by 10" (which isn't filling at all, I could have easily downed 3 of them..) it's also a total ripoff.

I've certainly had better pizza from Domino's/Papa Johns, TBH. Personally, I would've chosen Iggies or Isabella's.

What's Your Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?

My favorite would have to be green tea.

I've also made and really enjoyed the following flavors: bacon & brown sugar, malted milk, guinness and tahini/white sesame (which I like slightly better than the black sesame version). Peanut butter with peanut butter cups is also good times.

As for storebought ice creams: anything from Talenti, especially their sea salt caramel; Cherry Garcia and Late Night Snack by B&J.

Easy Roast Chicken with Asparagus and Leeks

I personally prefer mine just shy of done, when the meat near the bone is still a bit silky. Kinda freaks other people out though. The juiciness and the flavor are well worth the risks for me...
