Jell-O or gelatin salads were often called congealed salads at Southern tables and were fixtures at big Sunday suppers. Atlanta chef Linton Hopkins, an eighth-generation Georgian, recalls their importance during his own childhood. Hopkins created a modern version of his childhood salad using Coca-Cola as a sweetener along with fresh mayonnaise, pickled horseradish and Vidalia onions.

July Fourth is coming up. Lots of people are firing up the grills and having backyard cookouts. Choose the best all beef hounds, not the typical pig's lips, cow's ears and a ton of garlic.

I finally got around to trying this today. It really wasn't bad at all.
However, it was a mess to clean up. Doing it at home on my own probably saved me two or three dollars off a bucket. What a damned mess. Two or three dollars well spent elsewhere, if you ask me.

How do you get your money's worth at a buffet? The Food Network is here to tell us how we've been doing it wrong. See, buffet eating is a zero-sum game, and you have two have a proper strategy to win.
When visual artist Luca Zannoto was called upon by the Finnish coffee company Paulig to create a cup of coffee with a single bean, he happily obliged. Using that one bean ground upon an emery board with water boiled over a candle and everything else in miniature, Zannoto very gracefully created the world’s smallest cup of coffee.

Waffle House - oh, how I loves me some Waffle House - has a unique ordering system that involves standing on a designated spot and yelling vaguely food-sounding gibberish at the cooks. Here's what it all means.

Ut oh, the boss is coming around the corner with his daughter's order form. It's Girl Scout cookies time. What to do? Hide? Buy lots of boxes and butter up the guy who signs your checks? After all, your raise is up for review in less than a month.
Okay, you choose the latter. Now what do you do when delivery comes besides pay for your booty and wolf down that box of thin mints?
Well, here's what several eateries do with those treats.
The president of Iceland doesn't like pineapple on his pizza, and joked about making it illegal. The man credited with first putting it on pizza, now in his 80's, retorts.
Forget cash. On Tuesday, McDonald's hamburger fans were able to withdraw a Big Mac from an ATM. Big Mac lovers who visited a McDonald's eatery in Boston's Kenmore Square were able to bypass the counter and instead head straight to an automated teller machine that dispensed two new versions of the signature sandwich, along with the original. All were free.

Each year, Jews throughout the United States mark the holiday by frying grated potatoes in olive oil, savoring a treat that is, as Nathan put it, "traditional, nostalgic, and crispy." Or, at least, crispy. Because there's nothing traditional about the contemporary American latke. Virtually every element of it is a lie. Delicious? Yes. Traditional? Not in the slightest.
Like most red-blooded Americans, the apex meal in my dietary regimen is a hamburger. As much as I love ground beef, though, if I could find an acceptable substitute I would switch to it for health and environmental reasons. Hell, maybe it'll keep my cardiologist off my back for a while.
Enter the Impossible burger. Made entirely of plant proteins, it's purported to convincingly emulate ground beef in taste, texture, aroma, and mouthfeel. I haven't yet had the opportunity to try it, but when that opportunity arises, I'm keen to give it a shot.

Fast food chains across the nation have been been satisfying cravings for decades, but few people realize that many of those restaurants offer a second, secret menu with items that are regularly requested but rarely publicized.
Some of the selections combine two existing menu items, like McDonald's Big McChicken, while others are completely unique, like Burger King's Suicide Burger and Whataburger's Green Hulk Drink.
We've compiled a list of some of the most impressive (and horrendous) secret combinations that are out there today. They aren't always available at every location, but they're worth asking for next time you're ready to chow down.

On Skittles and white pine blister rust, Atlas Obscura ran this great piece on blackcurrants, the wonder fruit that we Americans are blissfully ignorant of. Fortunately, the times they are a'changin'.
There's a gif circulating again (the source video is years old) of a squid dish being served that shows the squid flailing its legs around upon being doused with soy sauce. Is it alive? Is it dead? Somewhere in between? Here comes the science!
Way back in 1983, Alan Drazen really did invent the Choco Taco. Not in Mexico. Not even in Texas or California. But it was along the border, where a mighty river separates two interdependent yet often hostile lands: Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Jackie Panuisiak hosts the annual Northern Alberta Lobster Festival in the community of Cotillion. She had ordered some 145 pounds of live lobster to be shipped from this province to Alberta. The problem is that the lobsters didn't arrive. The Lobster Festival was forced to eat hot dogs instead of lobster.
