    On a clear day at Nome City Cemetery (AK), you can watch planes take off over the Bering Sea. Within the field of white graves, you might also see a small black obelisk that shines brilliantly when it catches the sun. Getting closer, you’ll note an unmistakable symbol engraved near its base. It’s not a cross, nor a Star of David, but a sacred container of sorts in many American households: a tub of Cool Whip.The grave belongs to Bonnie Johnson, a mother, former flight attendant, and creator of a cookie recipe whose batches always arrived at birthdays, holidays, and...

    NATIONAL CANDY CORN DAY On October 30th, the country celebrates its favorite vegetable with National Candy Corn Day. #NationalCandyCornDay In the late 1800s, George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company created candy corn. His sweet treat represented the bright colors of corn kernels. Originally, candy corn was yellow, orange and white. However, it wasn't until1889 that the Goelitz Candy Company made the candy popular. Later, other candy makers developed a variety of popular colors and flavors as well. The original confection was made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant, and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves...

    Okay, we are coming up to July 4, a big day for picnics, especially on the BBQ. So what food are you preparing for July 4?I'll start off by stating that I am preparing a big TRIFECTA of food. Smoked turkey, chili cheese fries, and, most importantly, PICANHA steak.The smoked turkey is now being dry brined with kosher salt, brown sugar, pepper, and thyme. Tomorrow I will smoke it on my Weber for a total of about 2 1/2 hours. So why smoke it the day BEFORE July 4? Well, because I need the Weber for something else that day...

    The warning comes amid soaring tensions with the Nato-member country after Moscow claimed it has removed a Polish flag from a memorial site commemorating the killing of thousands of Poles in the Soviet Union. Russia's defence ministry says its troops have killed "up to 80" Polish fighters in "precision strikes" in the eastern Donetsk region. It said in a statement: "Up to 80 Polish mercenaries, 20 armoured combat vehicles and eight Grad multiple rocket launchers were destroyed in precision strikes on the Megatex zinc factory in Konstantinovka". And the mayor of Smolensk, where the Polish flag was removed Andrei Borisov,...
  • Vintage Recipes That Will Make You Ask “What Were They Thinking

    04/25/2022 9:19:09 PM PDT · by algore · 31 replies
    If you ever browsed an old cookbook, you probably have stumbled upon some sort of strange recipe that makes you go “What?”. These sorts of recipes usually try to combine completely incompatible ingredients and pass the whole thing off as being “savory” or “piquant” when in reality “absolutely disgusting” sounds more suiting. And we’re not talking about things like salt and caramel. We’re talking about bananas and mayo, or cheese and lime. Here’s a challenge for you: find a vintage cookbook in your grandparents’ home and try looking for the weirdest and most bizarre recipe you can think of. Now...
  • Make It a Three-Way: How to Do Cincinnati Chili Right When it comes to Cincinnati-style, forget what you think you know about chili. (cuz it aint)

    02/10/2022 12:51:44 PM PST · by mylife · 163 replies
    Back in my 20s, when I was working as a sports reporter, I long-distance dated a guy from Cincinnati. The first time he said we should “make it a three-way” my eyes bugged out of my head. No, it’s not as dirty as you’re probably thinking. But I wasn’t sure what to expect. Cincinnati is known for many things. Hosting “Oktoberfest Zinzinnati,” the biggest Octoberfest in the U.S. Its ongoing hatred of Bengals owner Mike Brown And, most importantly, its love for a very particular type of chili. “Cincinnati-style chili is a big thing,” says Joe O’Brien, a father of...
  • The Best Chili Ever Recipe A methodical approach to perfecting classic beef chili.

    01/31/2022 3:17:16 PM PST · by mylife · 165 replies
    gotta admit up front: The title of this article is somewhat misleading. Yes, we will discuss chili, and yes, it's the best chili I personally have ever made. But! To call something "the best chili ever" implies that the recipe is perfect, and perfection implies that there is no room for improvement. I can only hope that others will continue perfecting the chili work that began on the Tex-Mex border, and that I continue testing, well after the last rich and spicy remnant is licked clean off the bottom of the bowl. With that disclaimer out of the way, let's...

    The latest episode of “Coffee & Cochon” offers recipes for side dishes that will take your Thanksgiving spread to the next level. Whether baked, fried, or smoked, there is the turkey, the traditional center of the universe for the Thanksgiving meal. Ask anyone what his favorite part of Thanksgiving lunch, dinner, or both is and he’ll likely have a different answer, though.Because on Thanksgiving, the side items are the true indulgences. You need some protein 365 days a year. Same on sleep, even if you don’t achieve it via tryptophan.But one thing you don’t need on the regular is sweet...
  • This Thanksgiving, Skip the Bird and Go All-Out with Turkey Legs These smoked, flavor-packed turkey legs deserve to take center-stage.

    If turkey tends to be the star of your Thanksgiving, chances are, you have a favorite cut of meat. Maybe it's the golden brown, crispy skin, glistening with rendered fat to the point where it almost resembles bacon; maybe it's a simple slice of breast meat, waiting to be doused (and then doused some more) with a flood of gravy. Or maybe it's the meaty, juicy turkey legs, which you're prepared to battle your table-mates for every year. If that's the case, this recipe for Chipotle-Spiced Smoked Turkey Legs is going to deliver for you big-time—it's 100-percent drumsticks, and you...
  • Each state’s favorite Thanksgiving sides, presented just in time to argue at the table

    The map of favorite Thanksgiving sides, provided by Zippia, is surprisingly varied. Okay, get your arguin’ pants on, everybody, because we’ve got a Thanksgiving map for you. This one features America’s favorite Thanksgiving sides by state. It’s provided by Zippia, a career resource site which used Google Trends to determine each state’s most-searched side. The Zippia team based its data on a pre-determined list of classic Thanksgiving side dishes, and they did make some calls that you might consider controversial—for example, labeling gravy a side, because it’s not a main dish (nor a drink, as they joked). The team also...
