The fat on bacon, some facts you might not know about bacon by doghousediaries.
Brazilian graffiti artist Narcelio Grud does not use spray paint when he creates graffiti on walls. He strictly uses only rotten fruits and vegetables. Art can just be made from about anything.
“An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.” -Man Ray
Some folks will go to great lengths in making the weirdest cakes. This surgery cake literately takes the cake. This abdominal surgery life-like operation table scene with removable truffle intestines will gross some but I guess the recipient had other ideas. Blame the Cake Boss for this.
The only difference was one of them was trying to make a perfect cake and one of them was trying to write a great book. But if we remove that from the equation, it’s the same impulse and they are equally entitled to their ecstasies and their despair.- Michael Cunningham
Gimmicky soda maker Jones Soda Co. has a new flavor called Poutine Soda. The sixty year old french fry dish is very popular in Quebec and has grown into other markets in North America. It has gone as far as California. I think I will need a gizzard to swallow this stuff. What is the sugar content on this sucker? Jones claims that it is — “poutine without the guilt — 0 calories, 0 carbs, all the flavour.”
The Poutine flavour will be available in select regions across Canada and most notably in Quebec (where Poutine was invented in the 1950s), as well as Ontario and Vancouver:
- In Quebec, Jones has partnered with Frite Alors, a well-known Quebecois chain that focuses on poutine offerings, to offer combination deals for Poutine Soda along with regular Jones Soda.
- Our Canadian Facebook fans will receive updates via the official Jones Soda Facebook fan page as to where they can find the limited edition Poutine flavour.
- Jones Soda will be sampling at various college campuses, and students will be able to compete in challenges to sample this unique, limited edition flavour.
- We have also partnered with Quebec-based Poutine Week to engage their poutine enthusiast fan base.
My kids hate foods that come in green. Vegetables are number one on their list. My wife on the other hand loves asparagus. There is a side effect in eating asparagus, it makes your pee smell. Why? Ever hear of asparagusic acid? This is the only veggie that will your pee stink.
Asparagusic acid, as the name implies, is (to our knowledge) only found in asparagus. When our bodies digest the vegetable, they break down this chemical into a group of related sulfur-containing compounds with long, complicated names (including dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide, dimethyl sulfoxide and dimethyl sulfone). As with many other substances that include sulfur—such as garlic, skunk spray and odorized natural gas—these sulfur-containing molecules convey a powerful, typically unpleasant scent.
A perennial, asparagus are spear-like shoots that come in three main varieties: green, the most common; white, for which the green variety is field blanched; and purple, an extra sweet and tender variety that turns green when cooked.
The name just rolls off the tongue roguishly. Pirate Pancakes will make you a hero in the mornings with your kids. The pancake skull and crossbones griddle is looking for a few scoundrels to invest at Kickstarter.
Branding cows has a rhyme and reason. There are basically four types of branding systems. Lifestock branding began in 1877 to deter rustlers from the stealing farmer’s cattle. Branding did not prevent the stealing of the farmer’s daughter.
TSCRA traces its beginning to 1877, when a group of ranchers formed an association to combat livestock theft. As the largest and oldest livestock association in Texas, TSCRA represents more than 15,000 beef cattle producers, ranching families and businesses who manage approximately 4 million head of cattle on 51.5 million acres of range and pasture land, primarily in Texas and Oklahoma. TSCRA provides law enforcement and livestock inspection services, legislative and regulatory advocacy, industry news and information, insurance services and educational opportunities for its members and the industry.
The food world is a visual canvas of delicious colors. These inspired food pairings is a delight to the eyes and stomach. Didn’t somebody tell David not to play with his food.
Minneapolis-based design director David Schwen has created a photo series of PANTONE-inspired food pairings.
Titled ‘Pantone Pairings’, it features food items (designed as color swatches) that always go hand-in-hand with each other—such as ‘Macaroni and Cheese’, ‘Bacon and Eggs’, and ‘Milk and Cookies’.
