The stars were brightly shining in Durham, North Carolina, when three women obsessed with Jell-O mounted a pop-up museum exhibition of molded foods. Your grandmama's green "congealed salad" was one thing - but you've never seen the likes of these creations from chefs, home cooks, and one punk-rock bass player.
According to Nancy Zucker, director of the Duke Center for Eating Disorders, in a sample of 2,600 adults who identified themselves as picky eaters, 75 percent reported that the pattern started in childhood.
On a recent afternoon, an Oscar Mayer representative sent me an email alerting me to a new innovation in the hot dog-eating space: putting peanut butter on hot dogs. The rep claimed it was a growing trend. I was shocked and confused, but mostly disappointed in myself for not having heard of the practice sooner. A quick search on Twitter proved that the peanut butter-topped hot dog was, in fact, a thing.

We have all heard by now about the Tide Pods Challenge and how toxic this viral nonsense has become. Well, here is a donut shop in North Carolina that has crafted oilycakes that look like the detergent packets.

John Gilchrist, the child actor best-known as Mikey from Life cereal's most notable commercial, was tossing around a baseball in 1979 when his mom got a bizarre phone call from a stranger in tears.
"I'm so sorry to hear about your son!" the woman wailed.
"What do you mean?" Gilchrist's mother shot back. "He's at the park -- he just came home from school."

In the cold-war craze of the 50's, the government was faced with many survival decisions, including just what to feed all the huddled masses in their underground bunkers and shelters. After much study, they hit upon bulgur wheat, a key ingredient in middle-Eastern cuisine and an especially hardy and common grain. From that, 20 billion pounds of all-purpose survival crackers came into being.
You've probably heard the warning every year since you were a kid: Don't eat those little silver balls on your Christmas cookies, because they’re "poisonous." Those small round decorations are officially called silver dragées - dragée being the general term for a tiny confectionery coated in hard sugar - and they've been haunting the Food and Drug Administration for over a century.

I hate to say it but this fake burger actually tastes like meat. Not at all like the frozen soy protein isolate. It smells, tastes, and yes... bleeds just like a real beef hamburger.
It was a little dry, but I've been a carnivore for years and you really could have fooled me.

F. Nephi Grigg had an unbeatable scheme. Nephi and his brother Golden had travelled 2,883 miles from the tiny Oregon border town where they ran their frozen potato company to the white sparkling sands of Miami Beach. In his bag he had carried 15 pounds of his new creation all the way from Oregon, and he wanted them cooked and served. The golden potatoes had been cut into bite-sized pieces and fried, and they were a hit. Tater Tots were born.

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.
