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.

Bloody Witch Fingers

Are you still looking for scary but delicious treats to whip up for Halloween? You can’t get much weirder than bloody witch fingers! These sweet and gross snacks by Niki Achitoff-Gray at Serious Eats are actually shortbread with raspberry jam and almonds. You can transform the cookies from lovely snacks to creepy body parts with just a little sculpting using your hands and a knife.

Get the full recipe at Serious Eats.

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.

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.

Divine Nerd Wedding Cake

In just under two weeks, Olga Philips of Divine Cakes made us all extremely jealous of her creativity and talent by creating a 6′ tall wedding cake that reveals itself to be “nerdy on the inside.” The happy couple came to Philips with a short deadline and very specific requests concerning what fun things would be referenced in their cake.

To her credit, she was able to pull off the assignment (and then some), delivering a cake that includes the starship Enterprise, the One Ring to rule them all, the smuggling ship known as Serenity, the Doctor’s TARDIS, a certain astromech droid, a Hippogriff from Harry Potter, a unicorn from a certain Harrison Ford film, a nod to Game of Thrones, and, of course, the iconic symbol of Batman.

Check out Olga Philips’ design sketch after the break!

This past week, the Internet was all abuzz with talk that Nabisco might release a new limited-edition Red Velvet Oreo flavor in the near future. Of course, the internet has been fooled before with fake flavors—but this might be the real deal.

Check out the evidence after the break…

countchocbeer

Looks like we got a groovy cereal mystery on our hands, folks. Or at least we did. Recently, an unknown individual bought up all the boxes of County Chocula cereal from two grocery stores in Fort Collins, CO., and a few local cereal fans had to go without their beloved Chocula for a few days. One local shopper noted that she was especially displeased with the whole affair. The woman, who usually eats vegetarian and organic food, wrote to The Coloradoan to say that she likes to buy Count Chocula around Halloween as a personal treat. “Every year I greatly look forward to the month of October when I can purchase a few boxes of this delicious chococlatey (sic) goodness,” she wrote. But alas, she was out of luck.

Now, my money was originally on Old Man Jenkins, the owner of the sawmill down the way (where are those meddling kids when you need them to solve a mystery?), but  the real culprit was the general manager of Black Bottle, a craft brewing company. The manager noted that the brewery makes a special Cerealiously beer series–in the past they’ve done Golden Grahams, Reese’s Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch–and this year they wanted to do a spin on the Count. “We put the cereal into a hop back so it doesn’t get into the beer,” the manager explained. “We did it as a joke at first, but the beer turned out well.”

Well, the mystery’s been solved. Hooray! And it looks like that aggrieved shopper might actually get her cereal too.

“I have a couple extra [boxes of Count Chocula]. I might have to award her a box,” the manager said.

cheeseburger stuffed in a donut

Residents of Philadelphia: please go to PYT Burger so I can live vicariously through you. The burger joint’s menu looks mouthwatering, but one creation in particular has caught the attention of my stomach. Meet the D’oh Nut burger. It’s a glazed donut bun stuffed with a beef patty and american cheese. The whole thing is topped with bacon. Yowza.
