Christmas-themed Sandwich Monsters are the pinnacle of deliciously terrifying (but festive) treats. These tasty Xmas sangies all feature clever titles such as The A-bacon’nable Snowman, the Caribou-logna, Peng’weenies and, my personal favorite, the B Elf T. There’s also a Santa sandwich that’s made from cheese, marinara and cream cheese… and he looks, uh…extremely appetizing.

Holy colossal cookie container, Batman!

When Batman wants a cookie, he asks Alfred to get him one.  However, most of us can’t afford a live-in butler. So if you’re a Batman fan with a need to keep your cookies close at hand, then you might be interested in this Batman Logo Cookie Jar. It’s based on the original 1966 Batman television series, and it features the classic series logo on the front. It won’t be available until June 2015, but it is available for pre-order now.

According to Asahi News, McDonald’s will only serve small size fries in Japan.

This is a crisis of epic proportions.

Apparently, there’s a labor contract dispute going on in ports along the U.S. West Coast, which means that McDonald’s in Japan can’t get potatoes it needs to make the fries. Hence, smaller fry offerings at McDonald’s locations throughout Japan. Meals that typically come with medium fries will now be 50 yen cheaper.

One day you’re having fry parties and filling up colossal titan buckets and the next day you’re in the midst of a tiny fry nightmare.

If you love the great outdoors and you also happen to be a bit of a coffee fanatic, then you’ll totally love the COFFEEBOXX. This ruggedized coffee maker was created by Oxx, a design firm from Grand Rapids, Mich., and it’s built to take a real beating. It’s described as being “the world’s first ruggedized brewer for the jobsite or weekend adventure,” and it’s ideal for camping, off-roading and construction sites.

The coffeemaker weighs eleven pounds, uses K-cups and can handle the full weight of a car. Currently, Oxx is raising funds for the coffeemaker over at Kickstarter.

Head after the break to watch the project video and an explosion test.

I never thought I’d actually say something like this, but that Nazgul looks delicious. I mean, honestly, I’d totally give up the One Ring for a slice of that Ringwraith.

This stunningly detailed cake was made for Cakes From Middle Earth, a “Sugar Art Collaboration” that’s made up of thirty cake decorators and sugar artist from New Zealand who are working tirelessly to create edible homages to Peter Jackson and his incredible films. The collaboration features tons of tasty treats ranging from King Kong to The Hobbit, and the group is helmed by Mel Todd of Take the Cake. Mel created the Ringwraith cake, and he noted that building the structure to help support the rearing horse was a bit challenging, but the end result looks totally… (sigh) sweet.

If you’re like me, and you’ve got cookies on the brain 24/7, then you might like these custom, 3D printed cookie cutters by Boetech. The Etsy seller makes anatomically correct cookie cutters of brains, hearts and skulls.  He also has plenty of other non-organ-related designs to peruse too, like his periodic table of elements cookie cutters (which you can check out after the break). Gosh, I’m really hurting for a cookie now.

bakery work

Ever wonder what a baker does all day? Well, if you’re thinking about taking up the profession this video will give you a pretty good idea. However, I doubt you’ll be as pumped about getting up at the crack of dawn as this guy is. No matter what this baker is doing (baking bread, tossing flour, massaging dough or even taking out the trash) he does it with a great deal of energy.

FYI, the audio is a little annoying, so maybe find your own music to play while you’re watching it.

Graters Gonna Grate

I work hard in the kitchen, but some cast doubt on my skills. They may say belittling things like, “Hey, man, you know you can’t put tin foil in the microwave?” or “You know you’re supposed to boil the pasta before eating it, right?”

But it’s all just hate, man. They’re just doubting my culinary expertise.  All I need to do is  hang up this cross-stitch and let the negativity wash over me.

Anne Widya is a mom and photographer, and when she has to make breakfast for her four little ones, she does it with an impressive amount of artistic (and humorous) flair. She recently made a series of breakfast dioramas from hot dogs and other tasty nibbles and she posted it all to her Instagram page. Widya notes that each dish takes roughly 45 minutes to an hour to make, and that hot dogs work really well as little edible characters. Well, I think somebody is up for the mom of the year award!
