Lock up your heirs! It’s Paris Stilton!

Funny, I’d have lost a bet about the specific geolocation of the cheese. Sorry about spoiling your next casserole.

It’s hard to know who to blame for the culinary abominations produced by Sandra Lee: the host herself? her pharmacist? Absolut? or (god help us) Popov? But new evidence has surfaced that clearly indicates where the infamous Lee found her inspiration: drag queens.

Watch this video and see if you can detect any difference between a Sandra Lee semi-homemade concoction and this one.

Phylli Dilli Chilli

This was real. This was a real thing. The late, great Phyllis Diller had her own line of chili and apparently it wasn’t half bad.

Except for the puns.

You can judge for yourself what kind of a kook cook she was by playtesting her recipe for stuffed mushroom caps, from the Celebrity Cookbook byy Johna Blinn.

Warning: it comes from the days when salt, pepper, and parsley comprised the bulk of a cook’s spice repertoire. Click to enlarge, if you DARE! Can you imagine what Food Network would be like with a Phyllis Diller cooking show? It would be like a kegger at Auntie Mame’s, that’s what it would be like, and she would snap Giada like a twig.

Sunday Food Porn: Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes

Look st the blue of those blueberries! I dunnno about yours, but ours are a much darker hue. One begins to suspect some Instagram/HD shizz going on in the IHOP. Excuse enough to revisit George Carlin’s epic Blue Food rant.

I often wonder why there’s no blue food. Every other color in well represented in the food kingdom. And don’t bother me with blueberries; they’re purple. The same is true with blue corn and blue potatoes. They’re purple. Blue cheese? Nice try. It’s actually white cheese with blue mold. Occasionally, you might run across some blue Jell-o in a cafeteria. Don’t eat it. It wasn’t supposed to be blue. Something went wrong.
