‘Kitchen Safe’ is the Cruelest, Smartest Cookie Jar Ever

Kitchen Safe

Ever find yourself in a binge battle between you and deep-fried chocolate chip cookie dough or Watermelon Oreos? You’re not alone, hungry folk. Sometimes we’ve gotta put the kibosh on our cravings, which is why David Krippendorf created the Kitchen Safe.

This cruel-meets-genius container features a lid that seals shut when the timer on top is set. So let’s say you put in a whole load of cookies and set the countdown to an hour. That means it’ll be 60 grueling minutes until you can stuff your face again. NO COOKIE FO’ YOU.

The Kitchen Safe is hoping to be funded via Kickstarter, so head on over and donate a few bucks. Lawd knows we’ve all got our binging weaknesses.

Taco Bell Now Has ‘$1 Cravings Menu’ Rivaling McDonald’s Dollar Menu

Move over, McDonald’s.

Your golden arches aren’t reigning supreme over the famous “dollar menu” anymore — because another fast food giant, Mexican-cuisine joint Taco Bell, has finally decided to test a dollar menu of their own.


The Pizza Waffle Cone

You might remember our buddy Nick from DudeFoods with such stories as The Lasagna Burger and The Chicken and Waffle Cone. Well he’s at it once again, pulling out that waffle cone maker of his and throwing all kinds of deliciousness into a cone.

This time, he decided to toss in some pizza ingredients into the mix with the aptly named: Pizza Cone. Once again, DudeFoods proves to us that there’s still magic in the world.

All it takes is some raw pizza dough that you need to put into a waffle cone maker and apply pressure so it stays flat and doesn’t rise too much. Then it’s simply a matter of throwing in the ingredients you want. In this case, it’s pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, Italian sausage, and pepperoni into a bowl, adding some heat, and scooping it onto the cone. Simple and ready to eat.

I’d love to throw me some anchovies, bacon, and olives in that mix.

UTINI! Translation: Jawa Burgers

A (relatively) long time ago… in a kitchen not too far away… These bad boys were spawned. The likeness of these droid-selling hooded half-pints is achieved easily in burger form by shaping a triangle beef patty, select use of some savory sauces, a burger bun background and a loose-leaf lettuce to complete the sandwich ensemble. If, however, the point of this post escapes your comprehension, then *waves hand* these aren’t the droids you’re looking for.

Craving: Nacho Mama’s Pizza

Nacho Mama's Pizza

One of the problems I have with the Internet is that when I find something like this I’m usually sitting at my desk in the FOODBEAST office SUPER hungry with none of the right ingredients. But how can I complain, because without the web I would never have ‘stumbled upon’ this Game Day masterpiece.

Originally created for March Madness, this Nacho Pizza would definitely distract even the most die-hard NBA fans until complete consumption. Here’s the recipe so you can stun your family and friends for the rest of the NBA finals. Thanks to Brooke McLay and The Family Kitchen Blog.

Nacho Pizza

  • 1 prepared pizza crust
  • 4 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped purple onions, olives, and/ or tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro and/or scallions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Prebake the pizza crust (if it’s not already baked) just slightly (about 6-8 minutes is usually enough).  In a large bowl, stir together the cheese, flour, and milk.  Spread over the pizza crust.  Sprinkle jalapenos, onions, olives, and tomatoes.  Bake in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 14-16 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.  Remove from oven, top with cilantro, scallions, and sour cream before serving.  Enjoy!
