I love that she's described as a "Seasoned Food Professional". And she's literally escaping to Thailand apparently.
I don't watch it regularly, but sometimes it just happens to be on and I'll watch it. It doesn't seem like that much of an ego trip to me.
Yeah, the premise is a little ridiculous. "Yeah, I'm super hot-shot celebrity Iron Chef Bobby Flay. With a few days prep and training I can totally win a challenge against someone who is a master at making
I suppose it could all be an act, but I don't think so. What do you guys think?
Unless I'm missing something (using a script blocker, though SE is on the whitelist), navigation in a slideshow always goes one slide at a time. Which of course how you would read it if you're reading it for the first time.
However, I often find myself wanting to refer back to a specific slide and then having to click through a bunch of slides just to get to the one I want. Some of the slideshows are short, but for longer ones (like the Burger Bash one), it's very tedious to click so much.
I think it would be useful if there was a drop down menu where you could select the slide you want to get to or perhaps a text field where you could type a number and get to that slide.
Even better (though more labor intensive) would be if there were gallery of thumbnails of the slides so you could see what you want (vs just guessing what slide it was with the above methods).
I think perhaps it would be good to have one of those small text editorial comments explaining the purpose of the Mixed Review column. I know that column has been running a long time, but it just seems there are some people who don't understand it.
So, I missed about 2-3 months of SE and have been reading through the archives furiously for the last few days. One of the things I've noticed is that Mixed Review often gets comments about how easy it would be to make from scratch or sometimes people just commenting to straight up say that no one should ever use mixes for anything and wondering why the column exists at all. (Well, I've actually noticed it for a long time, but this was a much more concentrated dose.)
The worst is the people who try to be clever and say something like "Is this really considered serious eats?". Actually, I hate when people say that in any of the posts. The SE logo has a giant smiley mouth. Have some fun people!
Anyway, I digress. I've also noticed that the Mixed Review appears in the Top Ten for the week post a fair amount, so people are obviously reading it. I find it entertaining even if I would rarely ever even consider using a mix to bake. And I can understand how people who do use mixes would like to know if a particular mix is worth it.
In any case, I think putting up a standard note at the start of the column would help prevent the inevitable anti-mixes comments and the follow up by other readers explaining the column.
Is it bad that this looks like it tastes awesome to me?
If you're visiting Slice, there's a very good chance that you're obsessive about your pizza. You've eaten your 10,000 slices, you've developed an excellent palette...and you no longer have any time in your life for shitty pizza. You want the pizza in the picture above. Well, unless you want to be in a prison of your own creation I would suggest you make a little time for bad pizza. Here's why.
Anybody who's been halfway around the block is aware of In-N-Out's secret menu, which allows you a few custom options other than the regular hamburger, cheeseburger, fries, shakes, and Double-Double that appear on their printed menus. But the options don't stop there. Here's a rundown of everything you can get at In-N-Out, secret menu and beyond.
