Former COTW (July 2008) Joey Chestnut retained his hot dog eating crown this 4th of July by wolfing down a record setting 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes! Chestnut once again won the coveted "Mustard Belt" given to the winner of the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest held every July 4th in Coney Island, New York. This is Chestnut's third victory and he broke his previous record of 66 hot dogs set just last year.

Hey Arby's...Leave The Burgers To The Experts!
Posted by Angus on 05/20/2009 (1704 reads)

 Arby's Roast BurgerOK...first let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of pretty much everything Arby's does. I have enjoyed many of their tasty sandwiches in my time. But, something they have recently done has been eating at me for quite awhile.

I'm sure all of you have seen the commercials for what Arby's is calling the "Roast Burger." It's a very tasty looking (and tasting) sandwich that they have come out with to offer as a healthier alternative to a standard burger. I have no problem with the concept. As much as I'd love to, you can't eat a burger everyday. The problem I have is with the name!

Many of you may remember my article "It's not a burger!" from a few months ago. I have a BIG issue with things being called burgers that aren't. And the "Roast Burger" isn't even close to being a burger. OK, it has meat, cheese, lettuce, and it's on a bun, BUT IT'S NOT A BURGER!! It's the same as everything else Arby's serves. A roast beef sandwich and nothing more. Websters defines a burger as such:

A sandwich consisting of a bun, a cooked beef patty, and often other ingredients such as cheese, onion slices, lettuce, or condiments. Often used in combination: a cheeseburger.

So Arby's...keep making your mouth-watering sandwiches and curly fries, but leave the burger making to McDonalds.

BTLU Padma Lakshmi Channels Her Inner Paris
Posted by Angus on 03/22/2009 (1897 reads)

 Padma LakshmiIn the steps of Paris Hilton, Padma Lakshmi has signed on to promote Hardees latest meat masterpiece the Bacon Western Thickburger. You may remember Padma as our very first "Babe That Loves Us" and from her hit show Top Chef.

In an interview from People.com, Padma was quoted as saying, "I think it's a beautiful love song to food," Lakshmi says of her new ad. "I think eating in itself is the act of great sensuality, so all you have to do is point the camera in the right direction."

According to Hardees the commercial is set to air March 30 in all Hardees markets. A Hardees source said of Padma's performance, "she was totally hot and a real class act. She can really put down a burger, too."

I can't wait to see the commercial and to try the burger too!

How To Turn Bacon Grease Into Pie Crust
Posted by dirtykalb on 02/02/2009 (1852 reads)

 Cooking used to be all about making food that tasted good. But somewhere along the way, we seem to have decided the diet-of-the-week was more important. How to Cook Like Your Grandmother is a return to recipes and techniques that are based on what tastes good, not on junk science and fad diets. You won't find the words lite, low, lean, free or skim anywhere.

This is all real food, cooked the way Grandma would have done it.

Vegan Steve Jobs' No-Cow Diet Not Working Out
Posted by Sven on 01/06/2009 (2898 reads)

 Steve Jobs demonstrates how he is now thinner than an iPod Nano.One of the most famous vegans on Earth is showing just how well his body is coping with his chosen lifestyle.

Steve Jobs announced that he will not be a keynote speaker at Apple's MacWorld Expo trade show this week due to poor health. Job's has been dangerously thin for years, having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July of 2003.1 The official word is that Job's current health is due to "a hormone imbalance that has been 'robbing' me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy."2

Proteins, huh? Hormones are stealing your protein? Now, I'm not one to kick a man when he's down, but come on... he's a vegan who's losing weight. Improper nutrition can lead to hormonal imbalances, among a very long list of other problems. So, I'm sorry, Steve, but you don't need a doctor to figure out what's aggravating your already poor condition.

As Mark Sutton from itp.net says, "Steve Jobs needs a hamburger."3
