Because it was inevitable…



Dark chocolate, mint, pixel font… I seem to be exactly the target demo for these candies.

The funny things is that those look like regular old mint candies. They don't even look especially UFO-ish.

Yeah, if they weren't flat on the bottom, they would be a more perfect UFO shape.

Inasmuch as one can have a "perfect" UFO shape.

at first I thought it said "rich, undetectable spheres". it would've fit with the UFO shtick!

also, those don't look like any spheres I've ever seen.

I gave in to my cravings today and for breakfast I took a couple slices of sourdough cracked wheat, spread margarine across them, sprinkled a pinch of kosher salt over each one, and popped them in the toaster over until the bread was warm and the margarine melted.

It was delicious and I don't regret a thing.

Also, what the hell kind of spheres are those?

Actually, these restaurants would probably be safer than one that wasn't featured. Can anyone tell me why?

Not sure what you're asking. Just this month they aired an episode where they called an ambulance for a guy who'd eaten some bad lobster and they closed the restaurant down in the middle of dinner and sent everyone home.

OK, so, I'm cooking a thing. Let's call it a stir fry. I want black pepper in this stir fry. Do I:

a) add the pepper while I'm cooking
b) add the pepper afterwards
c) it doesn't matter, it's exactly the same outcome

Like, does adding spices earlier make flavors "cook in" or otherwise give a different result? That's basically the understanding I've been working under but I have no idea if it's true or not.

Just got served an Arnold Palmer made with Oolong tea. It was a bit odd, but I think I like it.

EDIT: I felt bad about going to a nice restaurant with wet hair. Then I saw the guy picking up a carryout order while wearing fish jammies.

My parents have become peach connoisseurs, since their main hobby is growing and selling them now. Yesterday they offered up a white peach and a "mistake" nectarine (mistake because the nursery said it was another type of peach, so they now have six nectarines). The peach was super sweet, but my dad said it had an aftertaste like perfume, and is only popular because the skin is light. The nectarine was better, but I've got a thing against peach skin texture so nectarines always have a one-up on me. My parents weren't too into either of them, but thought the nectarines would sell better, because the peaches would bruise easily, even when picked green.

Shrimp is heavenly food. It's nearly convinced me there is a God.

Was this sixty dollars total for the party, or did you seriously pay for an inedible $60 burger?

I am now on a mission to learn to appreciate black coffee. Which is a bit of a shift from the rare occasions where I'd drink it and turn it into a morass of sugar and cream! But its coming along nicely, its turning into something of a comfort drink, and I am excited about trying all kinds of different types. There really is something satisfying about a nice cup of coffee just plain by itself.

I've really wanted to try that stuff out since Tycho wrote about it a while back. In the meantime, I just bought grounds to try making coldbrew coffee.

Had indian food again. I wish I could remember exactly what, because MY LORD IT WAS SO GOOD.

I think one thing I had was chicken....masala...? That was delicious. There was lamb stuff too. That was so good too!!

I seriously can't understand how their food is so flavorful.

Yeah, the first time I had a shot of that, I felt some good vibrations. Afterwards, it was just decent iced espresso without tons of bitters. Definitely not worth the cost.

Ebert wrote a whole rice-cooker cookbook where he basically turns it into a crockpot. Just cooking rice is reason enough; any fire and forget help while you're making stir fry lowers the cooking stress.

The real reason I wanted to post, though, was last night in the checkout line I found the " Cooks Illustrated All -Time Best Holiday Baking" issue and every page is filled with wonder and the science of making cake taste good.
