Cupcakes are a dime a dozen these days. Bakers are becoming more creative with the sweet treats they’re baking, drawing inspiration from various video game, TV, and movie franchises, like Doctor Who and Harry Potter, to name a few.
It’s hard to tell when food in your freezer has spoiled because, well it’s frozen. You can’t always tell by smell. FreezCube is here to help. It is a simple device that tells you how much time you have to safely consume the frozen food stored in your freezer if the freezer loses power.
How does one go about with making the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich? What about the perfect sundae or a banana split? These are presumably some of the most commonly consumed snacks and treats in the country, so most people really don’t need any directions on how to make them.
How much would you pay for a ready-to-eat dinner? Most people wouldn’t pay more than five or ten bucks, but this luxurious food platter by Chef Charlie Bigham might just convince a couple of folks to change their minds – and their perceptions – of what TV dinners are.
We’ve seen a variety of 3D printers designed to make food, but most of them either make only one kind of food or are designed for professional use, like serving astronauts in space. A company called Natural Machines is working on a food printer that will be easy enough for ordinary people to use and will be able to make a variety of dishes.
How would you like to have your favorite memories for snacks? You can even skewer them or heat them up to make some extra memorable smores. Sounds pretty impossible, but as long as that moment is captured and posted on Instagram, then Boomf can make it happen.
It’s annoying and wasteful at the same time to open your fridge and see spoiling food and produce. Sometimes you just don’t notice when something is spoiling until they’re already past the expiration date. Other times, you’re just too busy to check and find that it’s beyond edible when you do.
Nuts are perhaps the most convenient snacks to have. There’s no need to prepare them, they taste great, and they’re pretty filling (but then, that’s usually because I eat 1/4 of the bag before I put it away…)
Nuts come in many shapes and varieties, and now they even come flavored, too.
Earlier this year word got out that NASA is funding mechanical engineer Anjan Contractor to develop a food printer, which the space agency hopes can be used to feed astronauts during long distance space travel, such as on a trip to Mars.
So you’re engrossed in a game of Settlers of Catan and don’t want to leave the game board to grab something to eat. What will you do? You could call for a delivery order, or you could eat something much more appropriate, courtesy of the geektastic cuisine of Chris-Rachael Oseland.
Noodles don’t taste just as good without the soup. That’s the thing I don’t like about chopsticks. They’re fine for picking up meat and veggies and for cramming noodles into your mouth, but unless you’ve got a soup spoon, then you’re left slurping the soup up from the bowl.
Love lollipops? Have a taste for blue cheese? Then you’ll probably love gourmet lollipop company Lollyphile’s newest offering: blue cheese lollipops. Lollyphile is known for coming up with unusual, if not sometimes scandalous lollipop flavors, like Sriracha and Breast Milk (ewww.)
I hate wasting food. I hate having to bring up that old “kids are starving in Africa” reasoning, but I will anyway, because it’s true. However, I don’t believe in gorging yourself with food either, just so you won’t have any leftovers.
