So there you are, at a dimly-lit restaurant, taking pictures of the food as it is served to you. You go home to upload the pictures and what do you get? Either a washed out picture from the bright flash, or a dark picture that looks grainy (lots of noise!). Honestly, those hand-held compact cameras are lousy when it comes to taking pictures in low light. While a dSLR camera might just be the solution, it’s bulky and inconvenient to lug around. Well, not to fear because the Canon S90 …
Question: What do you do when 6 feet wide and 440 pound jellyfish invade Japanese waters?
Answer: You turn them into sweet confectionaries of course!
The giant jellyfish, known as Nomura’s jellyfish or echizen kurage have been invading Japanese waters and are threatening fisheries and even nuclear power plants.
In an attempt to make use of the overpopulation of jellyfish, Obama Fisheries High School students have created a caramel space candy that’s infused with a powder made from the jellyfish.
While that does seem odd to those outside of Japan, it’s …
I think of all types of pasta out there, macaroni is my least favorite. I never liked eating it when I was growing up, and when I came across Andean Dream’s quinoa-based macaroni product, I was a bit apprehensive at grabbing a box off the shelf. I’ve always enjoyed Andean Dream’s other products, so I was willing to throw down $4.00 for a box.
Having low expectations, I wasn’t expecting much, and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It cooked evenly and had a nice ‘al dente’ …
Clean, simple, and inevitable. It’s only a matter of time until that chef at Benihana is replaced by a mechanical counterpart. First it’ll slice and dice the meat, and then proceed to slice and dice the customers. The T-shirts are printed on American Apparel and are available in 4 different colors for $24 each. I got myself one and it arrived in about 7 days. Also available in long sleeve, V-neck, and girly fitted short sleeve. Get yours here.

There are also ‘Make It Yourself’ sets, should you ever feel like getting crafty. Head over to LillyBeanMarket.com to pick up some stuffed food.
So I finally got my hands on a couple bulbs of black garlic. When I was searching for it months ago, I couldn’t find it, and when I’m not looking for it, it just pops out of nowhere. Nowhere being Whole Foods. Black garlic is created by fermenting garlic for a month under a special process where the meat softens, turns black, and the flavor mellows out into a sweet, yet light tangy taste.
I took one bulb out of the package and brought it to my nose. After a prolonged …
The release of Bakon, the bacon flavored vodka, doesn’t surprise me. What’s surprising is, what took so long? For most of us in the states, this item is going to be hard to come by. Limited quantities are available in only four states so far. Who are the lucky states? Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. Production expansion will be based on demand, and I hope demand is far exceeding supply. We need this stuff in the East Coast!
Bakon Vodka is a superior quality potato vodka with a savory bacon flavor. …
I wonder if chicken sausage is any healthier than pork sausage? Somehow I doubt it. But it does sound healthier, and that’s good enough for me. I picked up a package of Brat Hans Chicken Sausage: Spicy Andouille flavor, a couple of days ago at where else, Whole Foods. I don’t usually eat sausage because it is loaded with preservatives, nitrates, and a heaping dose of sodium. However, this brand of sausage doesn’t contain nitrates and monosodium glutamate. It also follows the trend of listing “no antibiotics” on the packaging.
Spam in a can, win. Tuna in a can, win. Soup in a can, win. Hamburger in a can, fail. Whole chicken in a can, epic fail. There are foods that belong in a can, and then once in a while, a product comes along that makes us question, WTF?
Well, let’s start out with the Cheeseburger in a Can.
This product was making the blog waves early last year, and the folks at AVClub.com managed to get their hands on one from Ebay. A few initial reactions before the taste testers …
I don’t know when this bacon revolution started, and it seems to be gaining momentum. Is bacon the new juggernaut of meats? Well, if you’re the person who can’t live without bacon, then here’s a product that you can use to baconize pretty much anything.
