What’s a Liger?

It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic.

You Must Eat Sugar

Rachel Vreeman and Aaron Carroll, researchers at Indiana University, combed through 12 studies and found good news for junk-food-junkies.  According to their research, sugar doesn’t make kids hyperactive. They’ve proven that chasing down a package of Oreos with a 2-liter of Mountain Dew will not, in fact, make a child more prone to go bananas.  Yes!

Bacon on Doughnuts Seems Odd

Perfect

Perfect

At first. Until you spend a few minutes imagining crispy, thin, maple-smoked, melt-in-your-mouth bacon. Put that together with a dense, rich, buttery, maple-frosted doughnut. Do you see where I’m going. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it?

I had to edit the image to make the print bigger, but it was on the actual box.

You have to think about it. Picture it. You need to use your imagination to get why Dominos has this message on the bottom of their pizza boxes.  Get it?

Food in the UK

I’ve always wondered about Blood Pudding.  I know it sounds gross, but I think it might be good. I’d definitely try it if I had the chance.  Blood Pudding is essentially sausage that is set in congealed blood.  Wikipedia has an extensive article on Blood (or Black) Pudding and all the variations.

"Satan will tempt you"

"Satan will tempt you"

Billie Watts, a 75 year old woman living on Social Securtiy, in an apartment, found $97,000.  She could have walked with it.  Instead, she made sure it got back to the rightful owner.  She was offered a reward but didn’t take it.  Her grandson had to caox her into telling her story to the media.

As Billie says, “Satan will tempt you” and good people still make the right choices.  Read the whole article at USA Today

Guilty Pleasure

Why is so much of what we crave bad for us?  I wish I longed for fresh spinach, cantaloupe and baked sweet potatoes – all foods that are good for me.  Instead, I find myself craving Hershey’s Take 5’s and pizza rolls from Food Castle.

If you grew up or live in Livonia Michigan, they have a crave-food factory on the corner of Farmington and 5-mile called Bates Hamburgers.  Bates is the home of the best sliders  and chili-cheese fries on planet earth.

How Hotdogs Are Made

The Ultimate Dog

I love the snap of biting into a juicy Koegel’s Vienna smothered in mustard, onions and Frank’s RedHot sauce.  That’s why I am not going to watch this video.  I think it will spoil my appetite.
