loaf-a-arama

I have Chicago’s The Meatloaf Bakery to thank for my newfound craving for a Loaf-A-Roma, which is described thusly:

Gooey fresh mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil, and a splash of red wine make this beef and Italian sausage meatloaf a favorite. Topped with a swirl of angel hair pasta and served with our own marinara sauce. Featured on Cooking Channel’s Food(ography).

But that’t not all. They also have an entire selection of meaty cupcakes that come in bite-sized, cupcake-sized and pie/loaf/cake/tart-sized versions. You can even get meatloaf shipped in the mail if you live anywhere in the continental U.S.

sushi-roll-kitchen-towel-jenny-pokryvailo-11

I can’t believe I’m saying this… but that towel looks delicious! Designer Jenny Pokryvailo (the genius behind the Loch Ness ladle) came up with this cool sushi kitchen towel, and the trick here is that when you roll it up properly, the towel actually looks like a real sushi roll! Seriously, though, don’t try to eat this towel.

Some people collect quarters representing each state and display them proudly on wall-mounted maps. However, if you prefer to spend those quarters on vacations and beer, the new Beer Cap Map is for you.

Crafted from 1/4 inch laser cut veneered plywood, the map will help you preserve the memories of beers gone by—displaying the caps of bottles consumed around the country. In addition, it features etched state capitals, small holes for easy hang-ability and a patent pending “cap capture” design which will snugly hold your cap collection in place.

If you prefer to drink in a particular state, the manufacturer is also creating individual maps of all 50, and hopes to have the complete collection available by May.

My belief that TeeFury is looking to take over the world is slowly coming to fruition. First t-shirts, then shoes, and now? Coffee mugs.

And not just any old mugs –– but mugs about our incessant need/craving/desire for all things hot and caffeinated.

The mugs are part of their “Caff-Fiends Collection” and, so far, the designs are pretty awesome. The mugs also include matching shirts.

Check out more designs after the break.

Cap'n Crunch Delights

The people who design the dessert menu at Taco Bell must be tapped into the 2 am collective munchiness because they consistently come up with some of the most insane but delicious ideas ever.

Continuing their tradition of desserts that make you want to make a run for the border, they’re introducing Cap’n Crunch Delights—which are basically fried cereal balls stuffed with “sweet cereal milk” icing.

Taco Bell is currently testing them at select Bakersfield, CA locations, but if they test well, they’ll be rolling them out nationwide.

We’re pretty sure that they’ll pass that test with flying colors.

gatlinggun copy

Ever wondered what a meat-machine gun would look like? (Yeah, that sounds rather dirty.) Anyway, the guys on The Science Channel’s “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” TV show felt inclined to make a meatball-firing Gatling gun out of PVC piping, and as you can see in the following video, it actually works!

disney-donuts

Donuts just taste more delicious when they are decorated as adorable Disney characters. Food blogger Fork To Belly baked the dozen to look like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. The confections have a 1950s charm about them with their nostalgic costume colors. But most importantly, they are donuts you can totally make at home.

Find out more after the jump. Because… Disney donuts.
