Percy the cat has long been a food thief according to his owner, Sophia Lindner. Over time, he has pilfered chocolate cupcakes, PayDay bars, popcorn, ham, chicken, beef jerky, pasta and Cheez-Its, and has honed his skills so he can steal from tupperware containers, cupboards, and even backpacks.

However, he was recently caught red pawed while trying to confiscate a cinnamon bun from the Christmas table, and the resulting photo of the incident captures Percy at the exact moment that he realizes the jig is up. [click to continue…]

Artist Christine McConnell has crafted some spectacular edibles over the years, but the project she unveiled on food.com is among the most impressive.

boba-pops

Okay, now THIS is a recipe that I can definitely recommend—unlike the Elf Breakfast Dessert Pasta from earlier today. Star Wars-themed pies filled with Nutella on a candy cane stick. Doesn’t get much better than that.

“Boba Fête” Nutella Holiday Pie Pops come to us courtesy of our friend Jessica from Pies are Awesome, who also brought us such wonders as Cthulhu strawberries and Jabba tarts.

See how they come together in the video below. [click to continue…]

Sarah Collins will be celebrating Christmas this year with her one true love: pizza. In fact, her affection and dedication was deep enough for the world’s most perfect food to make an appearance on her Christmas card.

“I chose pizza because it’s [sic] always answers my calls, comforts me when I need it, and gives my stomach a warm hug. I foresee that Pizza and I will be together for a long time to come. Even if I find another love I believe that pizza and I will keep an open relationship.”

Since the signs are so good, we expect that Sarah may next follow in the footsteps of Nicole Larson, who recently posed for engagement photos with her Pizza Hut fiancé.

The calendar is a variation of the traditional advent calendars that reward people with chocolate every day of December until Christmas, but instead of containing candy, this one offers a different dairy product every day. See more below. [click to continue…]

The holiday season can officially begin now that Starbucks has introduced its 2016 winter cup designs. And to add to the merriment, the company has ensured that the sins of last year are not repeated, emblazoning 12 of the 13 different designs with snowflakes, poinsettia, winter landscapes, reindeer, ornaments, Christmas tree lights and most importantly, an abundance of festive red. A 13th design featuring a wreath will also be available on a plastic cup for cold drinks.

The design of this year’s cups are the result of a crowdsourcing effort that stemmed from customers inundating the company with improvements over last year’s solid red debacle. The company realized the potential of letting customers handle the design work and soon 1,200 designs were submitted via Instagram from 13 different countries. The results will be available at over 25,000 locations in 75 countries, where they will be admired at a glance then tossed in the trash.

pizza-christmas-sweatshirt

What you are looking at here is the nuclear option in a ugly Christmas sweater war. If you wear the “All I Want for Christmas is Pizza” crewneck sweatshirt at the office party, the blast radius (which is a odd mixture of horror, disgust, hunger, amusement and respect) will cover an entire city block.

Who says horror fans have to ditch their dark ways come the jolly holiday season?

Apparently it’s actually is possible to celebrate Christmas and your dark side at the same time. At least that’s what Johnny Larocque and Nicole Cooper did when they decided to make a creepy and awesomely twisted gingerbread house inspired by Ash vs Evil Dead and the Evil Dead movies.

What a scene! Fun for the whole family…if you’re the Sawyer family that is.

Check out more pics after the break…
