    It’s Monday. It’s December. I believe that calls for recipes. I saw a couple of teases in the comments over the weekend, such as 3XLady’s pictures of Potato Candy – candy? With potatoes? We need a recipe! And MichellenotTHATone was bragging about making white chocolate popcorn – White. Chocolate. Popcorn.!! Recipe please!For my part I want to harken back to our discussion on the November 21 ham and cheese sliders recipe post. Somebody commented that they are called “funeral sandwiches” in the South and I responded that in Utah the ubiquitous cheesy potato casserole was known as “funeral potatoes.” Behold,...

    **SNIP** But Clinton’s testimony before House and Senate panels is likely to be mostly forward looking, said National security expert Rudy deLeon. “What we are expecting to hear, in the secretary’s own voice, is the plan she has to reinvigorate and enhance diplomatic security services," he said. "What we are reminded of is how delicate the security situation is, and how attentively we need to stay focused.” Will the Benghazi attack be a permanent and defining stain on Clinton’s tenure at the State Department? Former U.S. NATO Ambassador Robert Hunter does not think so. “I do not think her image...

    **SNIP** On Friday, however, CNN reported that "doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks." The report made no mention of the trip to the Dominican Republic. The Huffington Post said Thursday that according to Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines, Secretary Clinton "continues to recuperate at home and will resume her office schedule next week." Reines also said that "Clinton had no schedule this week because of a long-planned holiday," Matthew Lee wrote. Last week, CNN said Clinton was too sick to appear before Congress to testify on the attack that saw four Americans killed, including Ambassador Chris...

    WASHINGTON — Outgoing US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who fell ill in early December and hasn't been seen in public since, will be back at her desk on Monday, her closest aide said. "She's recuperating at home," and will take up her official duties again "next week" Philippe Reines wrote in brief email to AFP when asked about the health of Washington's most traveled top diplomat. **SNIP** Her lengthy absence from public life has sparked claims from some of her fiercer critics that she is trying to avoid testifying in a congressional investigation into a deadly attack on a...

    Four women who say they lived with Germaine “Jell-O” Wallace — a Colorado prostitution suspect who was arrested in Houston earlier this week — are coming to his defense. Wallace was in a cab with four women when he was handcuffed along the Northwest Freeway near FM 1960 on Thursday. The four tell KHOU-Channel 11 that Wallace isn’t a pimp and has done nothing illegal. They also say they’re not prostitutes, but earn livings as exotic dancers:

    In a meeting with a small group of reporters in his Capitol Hill office this morning, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, criticized President Obama and White House officials for their lack of resolve in negotiations. “Dealing with them the last couple months has been like dealing with Jell-o,” Boehner said. “Some days it’s firmer than others. Sometimes it’s like they’ve left it out over night.”

    I don’t recall ever being served, at home or at a ward function, green gelatin with shredded carrots set in it. I have been served – and have served – all kinds of gelatin concoctions – most of them quite good (raspberries and sour cream, mmmm! cranberries and chopped walnuts, mmmm!), and others … well … I remember Jell-o’s short-lived 1960s flirtation with vegetable flavored gelatin. Yeah, I can hear your “Ewww!” already. But they were good! If you’re going to put shredded carrots in Jell-o, doesn’t it make more sense to use celery-flavored gelatin than orange or lime? (The...

    MYFOXNY.COM - Police on Long Island are investigating product tampering at several supermarkets. On Wednesday and Thursday, Suffolk County police discovered tampered packages of Jell-O brand pudding mix. Nassau County police are also investigating an incident at a Stop and Shop in Woodbury. It appears the packages were purchased, emptied of their contents and repackaged with another substance. The items were then returned to the stores. Suffolk County Police Lt. Michael Murphy says what was inside looked like "a fine substance, like aquarium sand."

One American company, Frito-Lay, a United States company that markets a variety of chips and snack foods internationally, has recently drawn much criticism and concern from its Muslim consumers and non-consumers—not for...

    Jelly triggers German security alert 9:49 AM October 10 A small pile of leftover jelly discarded beside the road after a wedding party caused a large-scale security alert in Germany with biochemical experts, firemen and police called in to investigate. "Passers-by called police after finding a pool of a flabby red, orange and green substance on the roadside," a police spokesman in the eastern town of Halle said. Fears of toxic waste led to the closure of a wide area after the emergency call on Sunday, and experts wearing chemical warfare suits spent two hours examining the gelatinous substance before...

    Identity thieves are always looking for new ways to pry out personal information, from trolling through trash cans to phishing for bank accounts online. But here is one method they may not have tried: using fake fingers made from Play-Doh and gelatin, or taking digits from a cadaver's hand. In a study, researchers at Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y., tested 66 fake fingers to see if they could outwit biometric devices, which identify individuals based on the physiological properties of their fingerprints or other body parts. The fake fingers went undetected more than half the time. "Even if it comes...

    NEW ORLEANS A fourth-grade girl will be able to return to her suburban New Orleans school tomorrow after serving a nine-day suspension for bringing in what appeared to be Jell-O shots. Neither police nor school officials will say whether the gelatin cups actually contained alcohol. The appearance they contained alcohol was enough to discipline her under school rules. The girl's mother works at a French Quarter bar. She has insisted the Jell-O cups were non-alcoholic. A school system spokesman says the girl told her principal that her mom told her to take the shots to school and sell them "to...

    Louisiana (AP) -- An 8-year-old girl was suspended for nine days for bringing to school what appeared to be about 30 "Jell-O shots" -- though it was unclear whether they contained alcohol. The girl told the principal that her mother, who works in a bar, makes alcoholic shots at home and sells them at work. The fourth-grader said her mother had instructed her to take the shots to school and sell them, three for $1, to make some money for Christmas, Nowakowski said.
