Sight for Sore Stomachs – found recipes

In Food & Drink on September 29, 2009 at 2:52 pm

Food porn. It is addictive for the eyes, but sore on the stomach. Though, I guess I am not the only one out there, since there seems to be hundreds of blogs dedicated to food, glorious food. (According to Grubstreet, the term “foodiots” describes these types of bloggers).

Ive decided to be foodious, and hunt amongst the “foodiots” for recipes worth my time. I was raised in a cuisine-obsessed household, where we would plan tomorrow’s meal at the dinner table and dining out to classy restaurants was common practice. My clan claims that reading a recipe takes the same amount of skill as reading sheet music. You need to know each component to hear the symphony in your head. Now, I maintain that they watch too much of the Food Network, but there is some element of truth to their madness… It is pure common sense that bananas and rice do not complement each other, and it is common knowledge that spam should never be consumed by anyone who considers themselves a person with taste-buds.

Below is a list of recipes that will make your stomach rumble, your mouth water, and perhaps even bring a tear to your eye. Still they are somewhat simple in preparation, so you can translate them from your laptop screen to your dining room table.

There are many food blogs out there that capture lovely recipes and present lovely food, but there are still food-atrocities out there, that no man, woman, or hyena should ever consume…

  2. Bacon Infused Onion Ring
  3. Chili Cheese Corn Dog Fries
  4. The Widowmaker (consisting of frozen pizzas, hot pockets, fried onion stips, cheese, various meets)
  5. Fools Gold Stack (pancakes with layers of peanut butter and bacon, topped with maple syrup)
  6. And I dont even want to tell you what is in The Big Fat Ugly (hint 4 cheeseburgers)
