Popcorn Popping in Slow Motion

I can’t help but watch this video over and over.


Flavor Flav goes head to head with Colonel Sanders and opens ‘Flav’s Fried Chicken’ in Iowa

Just when you thought that Flavor Flav ‘s foray into the reality TV world with ‘Flavor of Love’, was about the peak of personal branding gone horribly wrong, Flav has come up with new idea that not only tops it but jumps all over it and kicks it out the back door. You guessed it, um maybe not, Flav has gone into the fried chicken business! Of course the transition from rap royalty to reality show star to fried chicken store owner seemed like a natural progression for Flav. However, for the rest of us who may have experienced the wincing awkwardness of  any of  ‘Flavor of Love’s’ episodes, it is just another bizarre step in the living caricature that is the life of Flavor Flav’s. According to Billboard Flav has at some stage gained a culinary degree and has restaurant experience. Perhaps he has worked the fryers before and knows the Colonel’s secret recipe. Whatever the case, you can get it while it’s hot and dripping in fat at Flav’s Fried Chicken opening Monday in Clinton, Iowa.

Pig Pop has arrived with the release of Jones’ Bacon Soda

Seattle’s J&D’s Foods are pretty much my type of company. In short, they believe that everything should taste like bacon. They were the creators of awesome products like Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, Bacon Ranch Dressing, Bacon Lip Balm and Mmm Envelopes that tastes like, you guessed it…BACON! They also commissioned an artist to make a bacon sculpture of none other than, Kevin Bacon. Their most recent project involved teaming up Jones Soda, an fantastic boutique soda company also based in Seattle, to create the world’s first Bacon Soda. Obviously not to be confused with baking soda, which I can see happening. I have to get me some of this soda, it will surely go with anything. Bourbon and Bacon Soda is no doubt going to become my go to beverage of choice. Can’t wait to see these guys turn the world into bacon. Check out the Bacon Soda taste test below.

Tiny Gingerbread House for Your Mug

I recently laid eyes on these cute little gingerbread houses that rest of the edge of your mug of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or any hot beverage! I’m not even that into gingerbread and I still think they’re amazing.

You can find directions here on how to make your own little houses. I think they would also work with a shortbread mixture too. Can someone bake/assemble/send some to me? Thanks!

Hoot hoot!

Cupcake of the Day

When I was younger I used to love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT as the cool kids call them). My brother and I used to play TMNT with our neighbours – being the only girl I always had to play April. Boring.

I made my Mum cover my school folders in TMNT pictures when I was six. I was so cool…. I would have been even cooler if I had these cupcakes in my lunch box!

Pancake of the Day

I just stumbled across these amazing pancakes (thanks John)! So instead of the usual Cupcake of the Day, I thought I would take the pancake route instead. This guy Jim just wants to make some cool pancakes for his daughter Allie. Lucky her – these are awesome!

Check out the rest of Jim’s creations here.
