Lasagna Minis Recipe Makes the Same Old Lasagna More Fun to Eat!

Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes and I could eat it every day, but lasagna looks like lasagna and it doesn't have "fun" attached to it's appearance.  Jenny decided to disprove that notion by making lasagna minis.  Okay, they still looked like lasagna, but they were kind of cute, I guess.  They tasted good, too, just like regular lasagna, but they looked like, as Elliot described them, "Meat cupcakes."  Hmmm.  Here's how to fix them...

Getting Ripped-Off at the Supermarket

We can all expect to pay more for convenience, but sometimes what we pay far exceeds the value of the convenience.  There's no better place to see this happening than at your local supermarket.  Most of the time, the rip-offs have something directly to do with the way products are packaged.  I've seen them with my own eyes and have fallen victim to them, just like you.  Let me give you some things to think about so that the next time you're shopping, you can reflect on the money you're probably wasting.

Pigging Out on Pork will Pick Your Pocket

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about why gas prices are going up and how that would be hitting everyone’s wallet.  Now, the cost of men’s favorite meat in the world(!) will be rising, as well.  Ask any man what his favorite meat is, and he’ll most likely answer “pork,” or as I like to refer to it, “piggy meat.”  Sure I love a good steak, but pork and its various forms have a special place on the menu, especially for guys.  Due to a swine virus, prices will be going up for pork. Noooooo!

Life Hack Test – Will a Mix of Honey and Water Keep Apples from Browning? [VIDEO]

Time to compare apples to, well, apples, and see if the life hack theory of soaking apple slices in a mixture of honey and water will really keep them from browning quicker, or if you'll just end up with honey-flavored apples. Either way is a win if you ask me.

Food’s “Sell By” Date Isn’t the Same as the Throw Away Date

Jenny and I are always very cautious when it comes to eating leftovers or food if its "sell by" date has passed.  Why take the chance of getting sick, right?  Just the other day I discovered yogurt in the refrigerator that had "expired" according to the date on the box.  Even though the yogurt was "unsafe," I ate one anyway and found out that it was just fine.  So is the date on the box or bottle the absolute "do not eat" date?  For the most part, it's not.  Consider this...
