Make Perfectly Popped Popcorn on the Stove, Every Time

It makes the biggest difference in the world. Coconut oil + good kernels and real melted butter afterwards = heart stopping goodness... Never EVER try and do kettle corn or flavored corns in the pan. Do all of that afterwards or you will never get the whirlygig cleaned. Finally, NAcho Cheese flavoring the easy way. 1 packet of cheese powder from a Kraft dinner box, 1 tsp ground jalapeno powder. I prefer the Jalapeno powder and when I can get it, 1/8th tsp Habenero Powder.

Shrimp Toast recipe

I first discovered shrimp toast at an amazing restaurant here in LA called Son of A Gun. I’ve been hooked ever since. So we made shrimp toast for you in little nuggets that you can pretty much eat in one bite. It makes it much easier to eat like 10 at a time. That is what I did when we made these so you will get no judgment from me.

The price of bacon: Jon Henley investigates industrial-scale pig

On a frozen December morning, nothing very much moves beyond the road's edge; a horse stamps at a trough, a tractor pushes along a narrow track. Every half mile or so, behind a stand of poplars, a neat brick farmhouse - raked gravel drive, lace curtains at the windows - slides into view. Next to it is a large, windowless and vaguely ominous shed, the size, perhaps, of a small aircraft hangar. It will hold, almost certainly, several hundred pigs. In a country famed for the unnatural feats of its intensive farming sector (the Netherlands occupies less than one-thousandth of the world's surface, but is its third largest exporter of agricultural produce), this area, known as De Peel, is more densely populated with pigs than anywhere else on the planet.

Some of the sheds are multistorey; they're called pig-flats. Useful resources. Weird Food & Strange Food from Around the World. Greasy Spoon Cafe.
