I award ten points for enthusiasm, but only two points for execution. But, hey, I’d still eat ‘em.

baking-bad-cookbook-1

Breaking Bad fans will be happy to hear that a new Breaking Bad-themed cookbook called “Baking Bad” is set to be released on November 6. Plus, you can cook these recipes without worrying about prison or a violent death.

Food writer Walter Wheat (yeah) has compiled a whole list of recipes that pay homage to the ever-so-popular series. Some of the stand outs include Jesse’s Jell-O Acid Tub, Walt’s Birthday Platter and White’s Tighty Whitey Bites. I thinking any of these sweet treats would be great for a Breaking Bad marathon. Who’s with me?

Check out some more pics after the break…

Wow, I’m thinking I need to meet Jessie Oleson Moore and shake her hand. She made pretzels that were filled with chocolate and peanut butter for a baking contest. She used a recipe by Elizabeth Bennet, and she made the pretzels using canned breadstick dough. The filling was made using a combination of peanut butter, cocoa, egg yolk and whipping cream. Magnificent.

Oh, the memories. It seems like just yesterday I was playing all those classic games on my Game Boy… oh, wait, I actually was playing my original Game Boy yesterday. Oops. Never mind.

If you’re fan of the original Game Boy like I am, then you’ll definitely love this mug from Etsy seller SandstormForever. I’m also giving Sandstorm bonus point for including a scene from a Pokemon battle on the front of the mug. I choose you, Cafe Boy!

The bacon weave is back! It seems like it’s been a while since Nick from Dude Foods decided to use the bacon weave for a dish, so I’m kind of happy to see that he used the technique for his new Bacon Weave Ice Cream Sandwich. In order to make this rather special creation, Nick made two bacon weaves and then used a reciprocating saw to cut a one-inch thick circle of frozen ice cream. Oh, and for the record, Nick mentions that he was kind of amazed that he didn’t slice off his finger, so you might want to utilize a safer technique before trying this at home.

Bruvelo-Top-Down

Okay, so I’m a bit of a coffee snob, so when I heard about this new smart, WiFi-connected pour-over coffeemaker called Bruvelo, well, I kind of freaked out a little. Yeah, maybe I overreacted a bit (or maybe I’m just drinking too much coffee), but according to its Kickstarter page, the Bruvelo can create a handcrafted cup of coffee from start to finish. This includes filtering and pouring water, weighing and grinding beans and maintaining an optimal brewing temperature (199 degrees Fahrenheit).

It also features a number of preconfigured “flavor profiles” (Delicate, Balance or Robust) and you can activate it using an app. If you pledge $300 bucks now you can get the coffeemaker by June 2015 at the earliest. The Kickstarter campaign still has a ways to go before they hit the $150,000 goal, so if you want to make this coffeemaker a reality, you should probably head on over and pledge.

Check out the project video to see how it works after the break…

Whoopie pies are typically sweet, but did you know that you can also make a savory version, as well? The Vulgar Chef came up with a cheesy twist on the classic dessert with his new Mac And Cheese Whoopie pie.

Interestingly, the chef had a fairly unique reasoning for coming up with this dish: He casually flipped through the Thug Kitchen Cookbook, didn’t care for the healthy alternative recipes he came across, and decided to make a “completely filthy” dish as a form of catharsis. So, he made pie using macaroni and cheese (those were the buns) and the filling was made from Easy Cheese canned-cheese. Yum?

Pokemon-Bulbasaur-BulbaSmores

If you’re planning a marathon video game session, you’re going to need some extra energy. If I were you, I’d make some BulbaSmores.

These s’mores, which are shaped like Bulbasaur, feature two green tea cookies with plenty of chocolate and melty marshmallow sandwiched in-between.

If you’d like to learn how to make these, head on over to The Nerdist.

Ahoy, mateys! There comes a time in every scallywag, salty sea dog or buccaneer’s life when he or she has to take a break from treasure hunting and relax with a nice cup of tea.

Now, if you’re a pirate who’s planning to brew up a spot of tea, you should probably pick up this T-Bones Tea Infuser. Now, the question is should you take that yoga class with your shipmate that has the peg leg? Yes. Yes you should.

Planning a sci-fi/comic-themed Halloween party? Well, you’re going to need some festive cups for the event. Sure, you could go the ol’ Solo cup route, but if you want to do something special you’re going to need some exceptional drinking vessels. For instance, the above Alien-themed pint glasses have a retro flair and can carry 16 ounces of your favorite beverage. They also feature scenes from the movie paired with the four-part lifecycle of the Xenomorph.

If chestbursting isn’t your thing, you could always go the classic Marvel route with some Deadpool-themed pint glasses.

Check out the back of the Alien glasses along with the Deadpool versions after the break…
