Seems Holly Schmidt and Allan Penn, who I assumed were top notch wiener movie directors, had filmed a production called “Wieners Gone […]

A 1997 New York Times article by Florence Fabricant suggests that Pop-Tarts are the food that best defines the baby boom generation. She attributes this to them being “new fangled, convenient, sweet-tooth friendly and cheap”. Aside from defining a generation’s shortcomings in food form, Pop-Tarts have also had a very checkered past. This past includes pilfering, law suits, acts of heroism and public deception.

Cook: Avocado Vichyssoise

It has only been two days since Cinco De Mayo passed. That’s not much time in human years but in avocado years, it’s like an eternity. According to scientists, avocados age at a rate that is nearly four million times faster than a human (summed up in a famous paper I wrote in elementary school with the equation 4,000,000 x H = Av). As I perused the […]
