I love Halloween. It’s an unholy confluence of basically everything I hold dear in life: food, ridiculousness, creativity, and monster cereal. Of course the night itself is magical, but the assured stockpile of sickly blue Boo Berry at my grocer is reason enough to celebrate. Unfortunately an artificial free for all is limited (mostly) to October. In the […]Read more "Anachronistic Breakfast Cereal Nostalgia"
Fellow PSFK contributor Simone Haruko Smith made an incredible find at an Alexanderplatz, Berlin grocery store: the USA section. It includes, in true Yankee fashion, everything from Betty Crocker to cheese-whiz. Although, in my opinion, the Germans left out (for better or for worse) a few notable pieces of Americana: Aunt Jemima, velveeta, fun-yuns, oatmeal […]Read more "The Realization of an American ‘Ethnic’ Food Section"

I’m not really a cake person, so this is what was presented to me for my birthday. Yes. It’s a cake made entirely of donuts. Eat one slice and you get a taste of the whole box. The cake comes care of my mom and Lindsay over at GrumpyWhenHungry. Extra points for being made of […]Read more "Donut Bonanza: This Was My Birthday Cake"
A lot of gluttonous food posts are uninspired combinations of worn out equations. Take [x] food and add bacon, then deep fry it, then stack, etc. Every once in a while though, a true fatty (in size or in spirit) creates another ingenious edible. The El Niño is one of them. Pretty much puts all […]Read more "The True Taco Pizza: El Niño"
Apparently Ohio has some of the most backwards liquor laws in the country, but this one leaves me with a sort of chest-beating midwest pride: “In Ohio, the state segments alcoholic beverage sales into what we citizens commonly think of as liquor and beer and wine. You can buy beer and wine in grocery stores, etc. Liquor […]Read more "The White Russians are Stronger in Ohio: Liquor Laws"
