Bacon Caramel

I'm enjoying this Visual Recipes website...visuals are helpful when you're making something you've never made before. While surfing this evening, I came across this recipe for Bacon Caramel. It sounded weird, so I thought I'd give it some love.

If you happen to try it, let me know how it turns out. I would make it with turkey bacon, just because I love that stuff, but I'm still trying to get used to the idea of bacon and caramel together...

Check the recipe here...

And check out this guy's garnish for his Filipino-style spaghetti (step 9) awesome! Again, so weird! I've never seen this before!!! Need a closer look? Here ya go.

Beverly Hills, 90210...the new class?

Okay, confession time. I was (and still am) a fan of Beverly Hills, 90210. Right now, in the midst of trying to finish up grad school, I'm trying to get through the seasons that are currently on DVD. HEY - Don't snicker at me! Someone you know was just as big a fan, or maybe bigger! Go make fun of them and leave me alone!

I also watched (and still watch) Saved by the Bell. The quotes abound and bring liveliness to my everyday conversations. The DVDs for seasons 1-4 are sitting in my house waiting for some love. However, please note that I did NOT enjoy Saved by the Bell, the New Class. So you can imagine the doubts that I have about a new BH90210 series. So many doubts and so many questions!

Is it really going to star Hilary Duff?
What is the likelihood of character recurrence?
Is Jennie Garth coming back as Kelly Taylor?
Will this suck?
If it does, will I still watch it?
Will I let people know that I watch it? much confusion, so many decisions, what to do?!

Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert

If you've watched SNL with me, you probably know that Jimmy Fallon is my absolute favorite comedian. I was so sad when he left SNL. And I think I was the first in line to buy the "Best of SNL: Jimmy Fallon" when it came out on DVD.

Anyhow, I'm so excited today - they finally sealed the deal that has Jimmy Fallon taking over Conan O'Brien's place on the Late Night show when Conan takes over the Tonight Show when Jay Leno leaves next summer. I know it's been rumored for months and months, but now it's for real!

You know what that means for me? All my boys will be all together in a late night block of TV. Jon Stewart (The Daily Show), Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report), and Jimmy Fallon (Late Night).

Man vs. Wild - the update

I was mistaken. There was no three day Man vs. Wild extravaganza this weekend. Only three episodes back to back on Friday night. Twice.

The real excitement returns on May 2. Prepare yourselves! It's going to be AWESOME.

If I Were A Graffiti Artist...

I would spend my time correcting all of the grammatical and punctuation mistakes on company billboards.


It's what makes a Subaru, a Subaru

Corrected version:

It's what makes a Subaru a Subaru

No comma needed!

For those of you who don't know what NKOTB is, allow me to enlighten you.


They were THE boyband - before NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys. I never was a fan back in the day...I left that to my cooler friends and classmates. (I think I can only name one of them - Donny Wahlberg. Is that right?) Plus, it kinda freaked me out that they had tshirts, folders, posters, dolls, and bedspreads of these guys. I didn't understand how people could be so incredibly obsessed. Well, I guess they're giving me another chance to jump on the NKOTB bandwagon because they've reunited after a bazillion years. I think they've recruited my brother as a marketer, because he is determined that we (my brother, me, and anyone else that he can drag along with him) will be going to see this reunion...

What are the chances that you think that will happen? Sorry boys...don't think so.

Man vs. Wild Withdrawal

I LOVE Man vs. Wild. Bear Grylls - that's a man's name - travels around the world and shows me (yes, ME!!...oh, okay, others too) how to survive in the, know, wilderness.

It hasn't been on for a while and I'm experiencing withdrawal symptoms. It won't be back on until April 18!!! The good news is...when it comes back, it will be in marathon-format! :) Well, not really a marathon...three in a row for three nights, I think.

I'm debating whether or not I should buy Man vs. Wild Season 1 on DVD...

Pizza Hut becomes Pasta Hut

Starting today, you may start seeing signs for Pasta Hut instead of Pizza Hut. That's no April Fools' joke...the folks at the former Pizza Hut are trying the name out to help them with their pasta sales. So if you're in the mood for pizza and pasta, you'll be able to get them from the Hut! I believe it's starting in Texas, so don't be disappointed if you don't see Pasta Hut right away. Pizza Hut can still bring you your pizza fix.

Seriously. Not joking. Here's the story. And their site.
