Delicious Breaking Bad Brunch

cooking with chemistry

I don’t know if it’s because I married a chemist or if it’s because I once had cancer, but I do know that I am obsessed with the show “Breaking bad.” My husband often tells me that cooking is just chemistry, so it made sense to break bad in the kitchen. Legally of course.

Watch: Breaking Bad Brunch

Hence, the Breaking Bad Brunch was born. Watch the video (see below), and see how you can break bad in the kitchen. And as promised, here’s the recipe for the Breaking Bad Biscuits and Sandwiches.

Triple Double Stuffed Oreo Is Here!

New triple decker oreo cookieIt’s Round, but is it good for you?

This man-made cookie is Round to the eye, but don’t let that fool you. It did not grow on a tree, vine or in the ground. That means it is not one of nature’s healthy foods, in fact, it may not be a food at all.

This double-stuffed monstrosity is what Round Eaters call Special Round! It is a gargantuan, overly-sugared, bigger than your mouth treat lurking on store shelves–as of today. You can even buy it on Amazon!

What are Special Round Foods?

Special Round foods are combinations of Round foods or food-like substances that are meant to be eaten rarely, such as on special occasions known as holidays, parties, and other celebratory events. These foods taste more delicious and do less harm to your body when eaten once in a long while and in small amounts, such as one bite of this multi-stacked, saturated fatty snack.

Oreos are almost as American as apple pie or fast food, yet they are filled with artery-clogging, diabetes-promoting, cellulite-building ingredients that only a scientist could pronounce. No matter how yummy they taste, there’s no denying that these sweet treats are detrimental to the human body–meaning–they do not belong on any healthy diet. Check out Nabisco for this gluttonous cookie’s nutritional information.

run like your being chased by the devil!

So let’s say you give in–one or more of these uber-Oreos trespass beyond your lips–maybe even at a rapid clip. Perhaps you dipped Oreo after Oreo in milk, or topped them with ice-cream, or chewed the entire bag in a wild binging frenzy. No need to fear.

Wipe away the crumbs and milk mustache, slip on your tennis shoes, run ten miles, bike 2o miles, jump on a fitness trampoline for 3o minutes, and then vow to zip your mouth and ignore your urge for more. Impress upon your sugar-coated brain that no cookie is worth a shortened life of sluggish unhealthiness in a pair of diabetic fat pants that only a Biggest Loser could understand.

The choice is yours! The devil does not need to win! Now go eat some tomatoes or an apple!

A Toasty New Trend

A Square Trend

Toast just may be the hot new trend in a world of food fads–and grains win!

Turns out that Americans from across the states prefer whole grain bread as their top choice over white, nut, cinnamon and seeded breads when making their beloved morning toast.

Crunchy is in & Soft is Out

  • 76 percent of Americans enjoy their toast a bit crunchy and golden brown
  • 13 percent love their toast slightly soft and barely browned
  • 11 percent leave their toast  in the toaster until it becomes crunchy and dark brown

Toast may not be Round, but it is super versatile. Toast is delicious with butter, peanut butter, jelly, peanut butter & jelly, cream cheese, eggs any which way, cinnamon and sugar, melted cheese, dipped in soup–and sweet specialties like French toast or jammed up English muffins on a lazy Sunday–or toast with green eggs and ham.

New Triple Double Stuffed Oreo Cookie

Now you’ll be able to stuff your face with a Triple Double Oreo cookie. Imagine getting unhealthier,  fatter, and closer to fitting into larger and stretchier pants–twice as fast!

This indulgent triple decker cookie is layered with three wafers sandwiched between two layers of filling–one chocolate and one vanilla.

The Cookie Buzz

This new unhealthy cookie twist on the iconic cookie  is all the buzz. These elephantine cookies are the most decadent Oreo yet. You can find these new mondo Oreo stuffing supermarket shelves starting today, August 16, 2011.

Bad Luck Cookie

On Friday the 13th, months ago Nabisco announced this new-fangled colossal cookie for all to start salivating over like sugar deprived Pavlovian dogs. This brings the overweight or soon to be overweight eater one step closer to enjoying a diabetic implosion–many who will find themselves up a creek without a paddle or medical insurance. It’s a flagrant, sugar and fat-filled smack in every big fat , or soon-to-be fat face.

Oreo cookies are Special Round foods that are meant to be eaten on special occasions, such as holidays, parties, and other celebratory events. These foods taste extra delicious when eaten once in a long while and in small amounts–one cookie or 1/3 of this triple stuffed monstrosity!

Newly Supersized since 1912

Not since the birth of the first Oreo cookie in 1912 has this sandwich cookie saturated the sugary thoughts of sweet-toothed addicts everywhere–and never in such a double stuffed way.  Now Nabisco can sit pretty in stretchy fat pants next to  such luminaries as KFC, McDonalds and the makers of the Big Gulp–to name a few.

Yes–that is how far we have evolved in 99 years! NOT!

Sandra Bullock's Master Baker Sister

Happiness is a Warm Bakery

Gesine Bullock-Prado, the woman behind the sweet Confections of a Closet Master Baker blog happens to also be Sandra Bullock’s sister. Her pre-bakery days were filled with unhappiness as a Hollywood lawyer, until she discovered that she was hiding from her true passion — living life as a master baker.

Gesine now populates her blog with foodie travels, recipes for an array of what I call ‘some-of-the-time’ foods, along with tasty confections from her own bakery in Vermont.

Eat Round Food Most of the Time!

Upon browsing her blog, I found many colorful meringues, reminding me of the desserts I used to make as a kid. This sweet and crunchy treat is pure eggs and sugar, and one of my favorite desserts to whip up — literally.

You can impress yourself and those you serve by topping meringues with chocolate, coffee or vanilla ice-cream, a swirl of hot fudge, a dollop of home-made whipped cream and a sprinkling of blueberries.
