The Weirdest Food From Each State According To The People Who Live There

Published

on

When you’re looking for the weirdest food in a state, there are multiple ways to go about collecting data. But usually, it’s just safest to ask people who live there what their favorite hometown treat is.

When Buzzfeed polled their readers on the “weirdest food their state is known for,” they got some seriously weird responses.

We’re not sure this poll proves anything, but it will give you some insight into what people in these states think the folks around them are best at making in some unique way.

Scroll through and see if you agree with the weirdest food suggestion in your own state.

1. Alabama

This mayo-based BBQ sauce can be made with a number of different ingredients to spice it up, such as horseradish and cayenne pepper.

There’s usually some vinegar in it as well to give is a tangy taste.

Looks unique AND sounds delicious!

 

2. Alaska

Buzzfeed user @amandas4af30c212 suggested a dish we’ve never even heard of:

“Akutaq, otherwise known as Eskimo ice cream, is a combination of berries and some type of whipped fat. Traditionally caribou, moose, or walrus tallow, but a lot of people just use Crisco.”

It gives us some pause, but we’d certainly try it!

 

3. Arizona

The Sonoran hot dog is an Arizona favorite, though we can’t picture eating all that fat in the hot sun.

But it doesn’t sound bad, that’s for sure!

The Buzzfeeder described it as “a bacon-wrapped hot dog smothered with pinto beans, onions, tomatoes, and mayonnaise.”

 

4. Arkansas

Apparently, “chocolate gravy” is a thing if you like in Arkansas.

With butter, sugar, cocoa, flour, and milk, it’s not necessarily something you’d want to put on your meat, but it certainly sounds like something you could eat on a biscuit!

5. California

California is so large and diverse that we didn’t think we’d be convinced by any suggestion.

Alas, when we’ve traveled to the state, one thing has always struck us as strange – burritos with french fries in them.

It is pretty unique to Southern California – and specifically the San Diego area – though.

 

6. Colorado

Beware the waiter than recommends the “Rocky Mountain oysters” to you on your next skiing or hiking trip in Colorado – they aren’t seafood.

They’re bull testicles. And sometimes you don’t realize that until after you’ve eaten them.

But at least they’re deep-fried.

 

7. Connecticut

Creamy sauce and seafood on top of a pizza? It’s pretty commonplace in Connecticut.

You won’t have any trouble finding a good clam pizza there – and there’s a good chance the seafood will be fresh!

 

8. Delaware

Originating with the Pennsylvania Dutch and then making it’s way to Deleware, “scrapple” to become the state’s iconic dish.

It’s better if you just think of it as pork scraps. But if you must know, it’s ground-up pork liver and other “bits” mashed together with cornmeal, flour, and spices.

It comes as a semi-congealed loaf (yum), but then is sliced and usually pan-fried.

 

9. Florida

Gator meat apparently tastes like chicken. And like so many southern dishes, this one is breaded and fried.

While it might not seem that creative, you will rarely find alligator on the menu in other states.

 

10. Georgia

Forget the peaches, when asked to chime in on a state food, someone from Georgia went with pear salad.

“Pear salad here is made with canned pear halves, a spoonful of mayonnaise, shredded cheddar cheese, and topped with a maraschino cherry. These have been at every family gathering I’ve ever been to!”

We have to say, the cheese and mayo threw us for a loop!

 

11. Hawaii

No one submitted a dish from Hawaii, probably because they have such a unique cuisine that it’s hard to choose just one item.

But Buzzfeed chose for them and picked “Loco Moco.”

It’s just white rice, topped with a hamburger, a fried egg, and brown gravy – and it sounds delicious (although not very Hawaiian!).

 

12 Idaho

Well, Idahoans really aren’t kidding around with their potatoes – they’ll even eat them for dessert!

We were not aware that an ice cream potato existed but we were relieved to find out that even though it looks just like a potato, that’s actually vanilla ice cream dusted in cocoa powder.

Just add whipped cream, peanuts, Oreo bits, and chocolate sauce and you’re all set.

 

13. Illinois

We’ve spent lots of time in Chicago and never heard of Horseshoe, so it must be a thing farther west or south of the city.

“It’s two slices of Texas toast topped with two hamburger patties, french fries, and cheese sauce. There are plenty of protein variances: ham, chicken strips, etc. I’ve also seen one with chili added so it’s like chili cheese fries with an extra surprise underneath,” said a Buzzfeed respondent.

 

14. Indiana

After a decade spent in Indiana, we feel silly that we’ve never heard of a roast beef Manhattan either, but someone insists it’s an iconic state food.

Ok then!

“It’s a roast beef sandwich and mashed potatoes, both of which are completely COVERED in brown gravy and sugar cream pie.”

We’re calling bologna on the pie on top. Sugar cream pie is an Indiana thing, but we’ve seen no evidence of it being served on beef.

 

15. Iowa

Iowa’s loose meat sandwich looks like a lot of trouble to eat!

Don’t get us wrong, it looks good, but we’d prefer our meat in larger pieces and with some spice. This looks like a sloppy joe without the slop (which, we suppose, should sound MORE appetizing).

Fun Fact: The sandwich was invented in 1924 by Dave Higgin at Ye Olde Tavern in Sioux City, Iowa.

 

16. Kansas

Kansas, we have some questions for you. How do you burn off all those calories that come from dipping cinnamon rolls in your chili?!

Now, don’t get us wrong, we think cinnamon is a great chili ingredient, so we get where you’re coming from. We just can’t imagine how we’d feel after that meal.

 

17. Kentucky

Kentucky’s weirdest food is wilted lettuce?! Ok, that we never would have guessed.

But in true Kentucky fashion, it’s not a salad until you’ve heated up bacon fat and drizzled it on your veggies.

 

18. Louisiana

With New Orleans to consider, it was probably hard to come up with a food that stood out in Louisiana. But Buzzfeed decided on Boudin, a type of sausage.

It’s got pork liver and heart, but frankly, we’re never surprised by what’s in a sausage.

 

19. Maine

Potato candy, eh? Alright then.

Maine’s dish dates back to the 19th century and it a blend of chocolate, potato, and coconut.

We’d try it.

 

20. Maryland

Eating muskrat is not common around the state, but pretty much unique to the eastern shore.

We certainly can’t argue that it’s weird!

The state even has a Muskrat Festival and Cooking Contest!

 

21. Massachusetts

We didn’t realize Massachusetts had claimed the Fluffernutter.

In case you haven’t heard of it, it’s a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow creme on white bread.

 

22. Michigan

Michiganders didn’t have any weird and wild foods to offer up, so they chose a beverage instead from Detroit-based Faygo.

@elliel45c6f7c8c said:

“Michigan doesn’t have any REALLY gross or weird foods. The only sort of strange item would be Cotton Candy Faygo, which I have a love-hate relationship with.”

 

23. Minnesota

Grape salad doesn’t sound too bad. But it’s a lot like pear salad in that it gets weird once you start adding creamy stuff – in this case, sour cream.

But we kind of doubt anyone from Minnesota wrote in with this suggestion because they’ve been trying to disassociate themselves from the dish for a while!

 

24. Mississippi

Banana sandwiches sound pretty good and not all that weird. But this one is different:

“Banana sandwiches with mayo or pear salad (pear with mayo and shredded cheddar on top).”

To be fair, plenty of Mississippians were annoyed about the choice, saying they’ve never heard of such a thing. The best anyone has been able to do is trace it back to Dale Earnhardt Jr. who said he enjoys banana and mayonnaise on bread and that it’s “southern.”

Ok then.

 

25. Missouri

A popular processed cheese from St. Louis, we’re not sure Provel cheese really counts as weird.

Considering Missouri’s past as a meatpacking district and the prevalence of innards and brains and such on even gourmet menus, we think those who wrote in could have done better.

 

26. Montana

Well, now we know what Montana and Colorado have in common besides breathtaking landscape – their penchant for fried bull testicles.

Montana oysters are yet another “oyster” that’s not an oyster at all.

Maybe it’s best to leave your oyster-eating to the coastal regions.

 

27. Nebraska

Runza is a “yeast roll filled with beef, cabbage or sauerkraut, onions, and seasonings.” And we would totally go to Nebraska to eat one!

You might also find them under the names bierocks, kraut kuche, or kraut bierocks.

 

28. Nevada

Nevada was another state with no submission so their food was chosen for them.

It’s just deep-fried squid though, which is something people eat everywhere.

Does the casino all-you-can-eat buffet not count as weird?

 

29. New Hampshire

Cider donuts are another one of those things that exist everywhere, but apparently, New Hampshire gets to claim then since they didn’t come up with anything else.

Do any NH natives out there want to suggest something more unique?

 

30. New Jersey

Taylor ham might not sound weird, but the pork roll is most commonly found in New Jersey and the surrounding states.

It might be iconic, but we bet folks from NJ had better things in mind.

 

31. New Mexico

Ok, we’ll agree that a green chile sundae is pretty weird!

Apparently, you can get some spicy green chile topping on your vanilla frozen custard out west – and we’re all for this idea!

 

32. New York

What the what?!

With all the diversity in NY, some guy who wrote in “garbage plates” gets to choose NY’s weirdest food?

“Garbage plates! The base layer is mac salad, then french fries, then either hot dogs or cheeseburger, then hot meat sauce, THEN mustard, and onions. Crazy delicious blend of nonsense for those who don’t mind their food touching.”

We were born and raised in NY and have never even seen such a thing, but apparently, it’s a “delicacy” in Rochester.

 

33. North Carolina

“In North Carolina, a lot of people are fans of liver mush, which is made up of pig liver, spices, and cornmeal. I refuse to try it, but a lot of people I know swear by it!”

Ok, but this is just a southern version of Deleware’s “scrapple” with a much worse name.

 

34. North Dakota

A white, gelatinous fish soaked in lye and cold water for days? North Dakota, what are you folks doing up there!?

Apparently, hanging out with the Norwegians.

 

35. Ohio

“Ohio’s weird food is Skyline Chili, which is spaghetti with this thin chili meat sauce and shredded cheddar cheese. Also, you can add raw onions and red beans with some hot sauce on top. Absolutely delicious! It sounds gross but once you try it, you’re instantly addicted.”

Ok, we figured Skyline was just a classic and no longer considered weird, but at least it’s accurate.

 

36. Oklahoma

We might never eat deep-fried food again after hearing about “lamb fries.” They sound so good in theory!

And yet again, you end up with a plate of testicles.

 

37. Oregon

Blue Star donuts seemingly paved the way for a phenomenon that has taken over the country – weird donuts.

From bacon toppings to CBD infusions, you really need to read the whole description before you bite into one of these!

 

38. Pennsylvania

Also known as the delightful “shit on a shingle,” cream chipped beef is simply dry beef smothered in a bechamel sauce. The “shingle” is a slice of white bread.

If you like your food smothered, then this might be a new one to enjoy.

 

39. Rhode Island

These are simply quahog clams mixed with spicy sausage, cheese, and breadcrumbs and served on the halfshell.

They sound delicious and even if you’ve had stuffed clams before, the quahog is supposed to be something special.

 

40. South Carolina

“Here in the South Carolina, we often enjoy tomato and sweet Vidalia onion sandwiches with of course, Duke’s Mayo, salt and pepper, and pimento cheese.”

Well bless their hearts, that actually sounds pretty good.

 

41. South Dakota

Chislic is cubed red meat – usually mutton or lamb. So basically a kebab.

There are regional variations on how to prepare it, but it sounds pretty straightforward, even though it has its own backstory.

 

42. Tennessee

We were hoping Tennessee would give us something strange and we weren’t disappointed – at least in the name.

Slug burgers are deep-fried meat and soy patties topped with pickles, mustard, and onion and served on a bun. No slugs though – they got the name because they used to cost a nickel.

(Oh, and Mississippians claim these too.)

 

43. Texas

Apparently things don’t get weird enough in Texas with food, so they went with Dr. Pepper and lemon instead. Oh, and it’s served hot!

Frankly, it still sounds bad, but if you’re a soda-lover you should give it a try and report back!

 

44. Utah

We had no idea mixing ketshup and mayo was called anything other than common sense, but apparently in Utah they call it “fry sauce.”

If they did indeed invent it, then thanks!

 

45. Vermont

Vermont seems to have invented one of the truly weird foods we’ve heard of – sugar on snow.

The best part is that there’s no culinary stand-in for the snow. You actually NEED a bowl of snow to make it.

Apparently, all you need to do is heat up some syrup and drizzle it on snow.

Vermont, you win.

 

46. Virginia

Delicious salty country ham biscuits are Virginia’s cuisine of choice.

Apparently, it is sacrilegious to put any condiments on them. So all we can say is those biscuits better be awesome.

 

47. Washington

Even the person who suggested it said people have probably seen them without trying them because of the way they look.

Alas, the Pacific geoduck is just a species of very large saltwater clam.

Very large.

 

48. West Virginia

We figured West Virginia would have at least 3000 calories to contribute to this contest, but we’re left with the suggestion of “pepperoni rolls.”

Frankly, that doesn’t seem very West Virginia-ish, but consider that they’re actually banned in some states and they do count as pretty weird.

 

49. Wisconsin

Ok, Wisconsin, we’re already impressed you didn’t try to sneak some cheese in there.

Venison hot sticks are a type of sausage that we’ll admit we’ve never seen elsewhere.

 

50. Wyoming

We know Wyoming would put forward some animal.

And it’s true that there’s not a lot of elk around.

Perhaps the weirdest part is that it substitutes for just about every other meat. Consider the “elk parmesan,” for example.

 

Ok, we’re ready to hear why you agree or disagree with this Buzzfeed assessment in the comments.

50 Photos Of The Funniest Quarantine Baking Fails

Published

on

We all have different ways of dealing with perpetual boredom. One highly proactive way you can approach time in isolation is to pick up a new skill or hobby. A popular choice for people during this time is to pick up baking for the first time and expand their repertoire of kitchen skills.

The problem is…it’s not quite as easy as it seems. Enjoy, 50 slides of people’s quarantine baking fails. and DON’T get any ideas!

 

1) This bread got the chop!

Now it’s one thing to over-bake bread, but it’s another thing altogether to produce break that can withstand an axe chop. They should get hold of your recipe to make bullet-proof vests!

 

2) These rolls have got the distancing thing down!

Well it would seem like “overnight baking”, may not be the best way to get those soft tasty rolls you’re trying to bake, but if you want rock hard, pitch black golf balls instead, that’s how you do it! Similarly if you’re trying to demonstrate social distancing, that’s the way to go!

 

3) Well, she’s got the spirit, but she’s a bit confused

It’s all good and well using tray liners to bake your muffins. Problem is, you kind of need the try to line! Otherwise what do you get? Well, you get puffy muffin textured cookies…but at least they’re in liners!

 

[/imgsrc]

4) That’s lights-out for a lighthouse!

This native Floridian decided to honor her state by baking some commemorative “lighthouse” shaped cookies. Well, she may have set out to make lighthouse cookies, but I don’t think she ended up with lighthouse shaped cookies…These are a little more R rated…

 

5) Baking is not for everybody

Remember kids, if you’re baking for the first time, follow the instructions VERY carefully. Any number of things can go wrong for the unexperienced. Think of recipes as parachutes! Otherwise your scones, can become stones.

 

6) Is this how Oreos were invented?

Not sure if these are burnt to a crisp, or simply trying to fit in with the whole “activated charcoal” fad. something tells me however, it’s probably the former. Youch!

 

7) You can teach an old dog new tricks…

But can you teach an old bread maker to make new bread? No. You cannot, it would seem. You can try, but you may just end up with a pile of…whatever that is.

 

8) Mmmm, maybe baking isn’t for you…

I mean, look, if you want to bake scorched hockey pucks, I will not stand in your way. It’s hard to tell if these were originally made with oats, or if that’s just the texture you get when you roast cookies to within an inch of their life.

 

9) Well Tommy, you try it then!

You have to agree with him though, that is one pretty messy…whatever that is. But hey, fluffy sponge covered in sweet, sweet frosting. t may look messy, but looks like it still tastes pretty good!

 

10) Cookies can’t social distance

Once again, who dropped the ball on telling these cookies about social distancing! Common choc chips, flatten that curve! Instead these cookies are just a flat mess!

 

11) Well that should just be illegal

Some people love cilantro, some people hate it. Either way, this is a crime against taste buds. Even if you’re a devout fan of the common herb, there is no place for it in a chocolate chip cookie!

 

12) #bananadead

Now I don’t know a lot about banana bread, but I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to be the same color and consistency as volcanic rock. I mean I have heard of lava cake, but I don’t think this is it.

 

13) When does it become just “one” cookie?

At what point does it stop being several cookies and just become one giant melded together cookie? And don’t get me wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with the idea of a giant cookie!

 

14) Looks like these cookies didn’t get the memo…

When cookies all meld together like this…do they technically just become one giant cookie? Either way, these cookies are officially breaching the social distancing instructions.

 

15) Banana bread or sinkhole?

As a fan of a nice fluffy, soft piece of banana bread this does hurt a little. Looks like this banana bread is little more sunken than I would otherwise like, but hey, banana bread is banana bread.

 

16) Mmm, tasty rocks…

They say the rolling stone gathers no moss, but when the roll is as hard as a stone, what then? It gathers no interest in someone eating it?

 

17) Now that’s being optimistic

As aforementioned, it’s best to take these little baking losses in your stride. Rather that just throw in the towel (along with the baking itself), you should walk away with a checklist of lessons learnt. Just like this guy did!

 

18) People are uniting over their blunders

In the eternal struggle of isolated citizens attempting banana bread, yet another casualty has inspired others. Under the hashtag, #Mysham, other bakers have been sharing their own baking mishaps.

 

19) Those poor bunnies…

It’s not just banana bread that’s getting a hared time right now, these poor baked bunnies aren’t exactly in great shape either. In fact, they actually seem a little miserable. In fact, if nobody told me those were bunnies I would think they’re some sort of ghost cookies.

 

20) And…this…thing…

What was supposed to be a braided chocolate circle (whatever that is…) ended up looking more like…well…I’ll let you decide what it looks like. It seems like this baker already has…

 

21) And it goes further than banana bread

I know that you CAN make bread out of potatoes, but I’ve never seen a loaf of bread BECOME one! In fact this disasterous loaf seems to even be growing roots. Hey, maybe before long they’ll be able to grow a whole plantation of loaves.

 

22) Some even throw their S.O.’s under the bus

Sometimes the shame isn’t even theirs! This guy’s poor girlfriend spent her time, sweat and effort baking him an isolation birthday cake, but I guess it didn’t quite work out so well. Well, it may be good if those are strawberries…but there’s a small chance that they’re tomatoes.

 

23) Puts the “pan” in “pandora’s box”

Typically cinnamon buns are, y’know…separate. Also they don’t usually amalgamate into this giant, heaving mess of cinnamon chaos. But…it may still taste good?

 

24) Not even microwave baking is safe

We’ve all seen the ol’ cake-in-a-cup trick, but sometimes it can go pretty wrong. One of the classic blunders that is just too easy to make, is putting way to much of the magic powder in the cup.

 

25) They say that baking is like chemistry…

…but that may not strictly be true. This baker and science maker is not all that successful in the techniques required to bake this…I guess cake?

 

26) Great if you want to bake yourself a golf-ball holder..

If you’re trying to bake cupcakes however, this may not be the result you’re after. Plus, aren’t cupcakes usually in, like, cups? In fact, whatever this baking is, sort of became the cups.

 

27) This loaf was a bit of a reach

So desperate was this loaf to escape its fate, that it appears to even have been reaching for a way out. Stay strong, strange loaf, maybe one day you will be free of this world!

 

28) another…reaching attempt

Here’s another loaf of bread that seems to just be happy hanging out. Not sure what it is that this loaf expects to grab at, but hopefully the next time around this baker may have more success.

 

29) Cake news…

I mean… your kid knows what a cake is right? At least some of these turned out OK, not sure about those ones on the edge though. I guess at least some of them were worthy of icing.

 

30) Is there such a thing as a cake exorcist?

I mean, I’m not here to judge. But also, I am. To be honest, this cake looks like it still tastes pretty good, even if it looks a little ghastly. The good news is, a one year old probably won’t discriminate between a pretty cake and an ugly one so long as it is loaded with sugar.

 

31) Send those macarons back!

I guess as it turns out, homemade almond flour isn’t ideal for making these (usually) delectable treats. They’re usually soft, which a slightly crunchy outer. These however, seem to be hard, with a hard outer, not to mention charred to a cinder. I’m no macaron expert but I’m sure that’s not how it was meant to go.

 

32) It’scone badly

I’m pretty sure there’s supposed to be a difference between scones and cookies. And I’m pretty sure it’s not just that one of them can’t be mispronounced. I won’t even get started on the whole cookies vs biscuits debate…although if I were, I would point out that a biscuit is something that you dip in your tea…so it has been and so it shall always be. Wot wot!

 

33) How do you burn something without even burning it?

According to this tweeter, they somehow managed to create these black-as-night banana bread muffins, but without actually burning them. They point to the colour being caused by some other sort of drastic chemical reaction, which I do have to call BS on. I’m no baker and so I know a burnt muffin when I see one!

 

34) Somewhere over a horrendous mess

What delightful little cookies (biscuits) this person set out to bake. What they got however, seems like more of a surrealist painter’s nightmare, put on a baking tray and shoved into the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes too long.

 

35) Well I’ve heard of lava cake…

But I’ve never seen it actually molten! Did somebody try actually scooping lava from the earth’s mantle, then dust it with frosting just to throw it back in the oven for another hour? Not going to lie, a little curious about how it tastes…

 

36) This funny bunny

This ambitious baker set out to make an adorable bunny cookie. Instead, what they ended up with was some sort of grotesque, molten horror-rabbit. Just going to say though- still looks delicious.

 

37) Silly Rabbit

Well, they got the ears and eye-holes right, but the shape…not so much. Instead of cute little round bun-nies, they ended up with these messes which seem to have amalgamated somewhat, just to be broken into square rabbits.

 

38) Fail? OR prevail?

While this person didn’t quite get what they set out for, but by the sounds of it, it kind of worked out in the end! I’ve certainly never heard of using wild yeast from dried fruit to make bread, but hey, maybe I’ll try it for my failed baking attempt!

 

39) What is it with the bunnies?

I guess that following Easter, everybody was in a rabbit state of mind, but maybe they should have looked a bit closer at those recipes. To be fair, this rabbit actually just looks jacked! That’s a gym bunny for sure.

 

40) Oh the horror…

What fresh nightmare is this disastrous creation? What little bakery of horrors could produce such a hideous mess? I will say what I’ve been saying this whole time though- I bet that is still as sweet and chocolaty as if it were immaculate.

 

41) Pretzels have seen better days

The MUTANT pretzels went a little wrong when they went from being wonderful little bread knots to…whatever those folded lumps are. I can’t tell if those are salted, but, is this person eating them with Nutella? Is that normal? Am I missing something?

 

42) This terrifying cookie

It’s hard to feel good about your baking skills when your pug seems to be shaken to the very core by a mere cookie. Usually dogsa re all to ready to take any treat in front of them, but this pup is petrified.

 

43) This custard tart turned to…custard?

Either something went wrong with this recipe, or there is something evil in that oven because something is strange in this neighbourhood. Somehow the eggs in this custard have rebelled and spilled out into a separate omelette alongside. I guess there’s nothing wring with a bonus omelette.

44) Actually kind of cute

Y’know, I’m not even 100% sure that this is even technically a fail being rather cute in a way. I mean, that is a “face” in the loosest possible definition of the word, but still! How much is that doggy?

 

45)Well, at least this guy has the spirit!

The important thing is that when you mess up horrendously in the kitchen over this period, you learn from your mistakes and try again. Before that though, just follow the damn recipe!

 

46) Nothing better to do?

While this is certainly tame as far as these fails go, I’m sure it’s not quite up to scratch for this quarantine baker. I don’t know, I feel like with a hefty dollop of cream and cup o’ tea, this would be pretty delightful!

 

47) Not as it appears

It seems like this video is just like Vin Diesel. Hard on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. Unlike Vin Diesel however, this break is probably not ready, and probably wouldn’t be cast in The Chronicles of Riddick. Probably.

 

48) A flop of glop

Well it seems like many things went wrong with this, a perfect storm of missing ingredients, faulty equipment, and gloopy consistency. Better luck next time! Given that we’re all quarantined, that could be literally any time!

 

49) Upside down cake, upside down?

Well I’ve heard of upside down cake, but don’t you need to turn it upside down first. And if this isn’t upside down cake, then why does it…appear to be upside down?

 

50) *Baguettes

Well, that’s also not how you spell focaccia, but I’m just going to let that one slide! You know what else is sliding? This sloppy, melty dough. Sorry, I meant “D’oh!”

50 Catastrophic Cooking Fails No One Ever Wants To Come Home To

Published

on

Ever had a bad day in the kitchen? You are in good company with these crazy kitchen blunders. Some of them are almost too crazy to believe, these epic mishaps will surprise anyone!

Here are 50 kitchen catastrophes. They are hard-core and hard-to-believe, but so, so, funny. From kitchen explosions to missed attempts at baking masterpieces, these pics will make you chuckle—or straight out laugh.

I hope these photos will help us all laugh a little more at our own mistakes and not take things so seriously in the dinner department. A big thanks to all the cooks who shared and let us know that on our bad cooking days we aren’t alone, who gave us this opportunity to share the love with our friends and family!

1) The Zombie Roll Apocalypse, Coming To a Dinner Table Near You

I’m just going to come out and say it—are those rolls vomiting? What a scary thing to come home to, unless it’s Halloween. If that’s the case, then these spewing faces might be just what the kids ordered. Kudos to the cook who made them, this picture made my day with a good laugh. Thanks for sharing!

2) RIP, Cutting Board

On one hand, it’s nice to be left a note by your spouse or partner. On the other hand, now you have to replace a cutting board and an electric burner. At the end of the day though, it’s nice to know that you’re loved.

3) 1 Minute Wonder

I love sushi but don’t have the stomach (literally) to try making it. This though, I could handle!

4) Watch Out—Exploding Chickens!

This could be an ad for Birds’n’Blocks. In the game, the birds are stuck and can’t fly because of their small wings. This is a true testament to the power of yeast…and of baking in small pans.

5) Alien Invaders!

These eggs are out of this world! I know a couple of ten-year-olds who would be delighted with this kind of after school snack invasion. I still can’t believe the eggs fell just in the right spot to make that perfect slit of a creepy alien mouth!!

6) So Apparently, Anything Is Possible In the Kitchen

According to the cook, this is caramel. It looks like Frodo took the pan and scooped up some of the fires of Mount Doom! Good thing this didn’t happen in a small space, can you imagine coming home to a volcano?

“I forgot I was making caramel at work. It’s a tad overcooked.”

55 Copycat Recipes From Your Favorite Restaurants

Published

on

It’s no secret that Americans love their fast food. In fact, we love all of our chain restaurants, whether they’re regional or national. Can you really blame us? We have some pretty kickin’ food. Just take McDonald’s, which has traveled across the world and garnered new fans in 101 different countries. It may not be good for you, but it sure is delicious.

That being said, eating out is expensive. Spending $50 a week — about the average for Americans — adds up to $2,500 every year. So how can you get your favorite restaurant recipes without spending that much money? You make them yourself, of course.

The good news is that in the age of the internet, it’s not as hard to learn as you might think. There are entire blogs dedicated to crafting “copycat” recipes of our favorite restaurant meals, from fast food all the way to fine dining. Whether leaked recipes or just imitations, they’re the next best thing to the dishes we know and love.

So, if you have the fast food bug or trying to save some money, grab a whisk and look through these recipes from all your favorite restaurants.
