Baked potatoes are great. Throw some butter and salt on ’em right when they come out of the oven, and I’ve reached carby nirvana. But then one man posed the question, “How can you make baked potatoes better?” and his answer is beautifully crispy and all-around perfect.
Just grab a wooden skewer and get ready to drool:
These spirals are everything. Pass the ketchup, please!
Personally, I don’t understand why people would choose not to eat gluten.
I mean, me? I can’t get enough of it! For starters, tons of foods that I love have gluten in them. And then there’s the whole thing — science — that says gluten isn’t actually bad for you (unless, of course, you have Celiac disease). If anything, you’re just causing yourself annoyance by having to pay for special gluten-free foods.
If you’re like me, your oven acts more like an extra storage space for your cramped kitchen than it does a functional home appliance. Sure, sometimes I clear it out for the ambitious pie or baked chicken, but those things take so long to make and require so much effort.
But what if I told you that there’s a simple dessert you can make in minutes…without ever touching an oven?
Yes, friends, this no-bake cheesecake is a thing of beauty and it’s so easy to whip up!
I know what you’re thinking — you never knew cheesecake was so easy to make!
Sitting out by the pool with an ice-cold glass of fizzy goodness is basically the definition of refreshing. Speaking of foods that aren’t really healthy but taste way too good, let’s talk about cake for a second. Actually, let’s talk about soda and cake. If these two treats are high on your “gotta have this right now” list, this amazing recipe is the one for you.
I really need to learn how to bake, because this is just too good to miss.
No matter how many meals you arbitrarily sprinkle it on, you’re never going to love the savory topper more than Reddit user fourthwardco. When he bought 8.6 pounds of pork, he decided to actually cure his own bacon.
As he walks us through the steps, you’ll realize the difference between cooking bacon and curing it is like the difference between babysitting a child and having one of your own. And rest assured, this guy loves his little bacon baby!
When fourthwardco bought this 8.6-pound slab of pork at his local butcher, he knew exactly what to do with it.
With winter comes the very real possibility of getting snowed in. Much of the east coast just experienced that with Winter Storm Jonas. This can leave you feeling restless and bored, so if you start to get cabin fever, you might want to find something to do.
What better way to pass the time than by making some delicious cookies? These suckers take very little time to whip up and only have a few ingredients. Next thing you know, you’re going to be chowing down on chocolate chip cookies that don’t even require an oven!
Who wants to wait 20 to 30 minutes for cookies to come out of the oven when you can get near-instant gratification right from your microwave?!
There’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot day, but any other time of the year, you’re more likely to find me with a spirit in my hand than a lager. But for those who love knocking down pints of ales, stouts, and malts, you might want to take a look at all the other things you can do with your beer.
Introducing the vast world of cooking with brews…get ready, because this is going to change your world.
If there’s one problem with pizza (there honestly isn’t), it would be that when you order it, you sometimes get way too much for one human to handle. Normally, I would just throw the leftover pieces in the fridge and eat them the next day (or an hour later. Don’t judge me!), but for a guy trying to count calories who still loves pizza, this recipe by Jumble Joy is perfect!
It satiates my cravings without making me feel like a pizza monster is going to burst out of my stomach like something in Alien. Sound like a recipe you need in your life? Check this out.
Hey, waiting 15 minutes for these to cook beats waiting for the pizza guy to show up! When you make your favorite takeout dishes at home, you get to control how many gut-busting ingredients end up (or don’t end up) in the finished product.
