I Survived My First Week of Intermittent Fasting

My favorite quote from Garfield (Everyone has one, right?) has to be: Diet is just DIE with a T. Nothing is less satisfying than the first few days of a new diet. You're either screaming at everyone around you ready to bite their heads off because you're so hungry, or you're so disgusted at eating nothing but crunchy, healthy food. Celery is the food of the devil for sure. My wife and I have been trying to eat healthy and lose some weight for awhile now. Nothing seems to be sticking though, except for the extra pounds. So we decided it was time for a drastic change. We looked into the Keto ...

The Most Stuf OREO is What Heaven Must Taste Like

If you've been following my blog for awhile, you know that I'm a sucker for OREOs and all of their crazy flavors. Some are solid gold (like the Marshmallow Crispy OREOS!), while others, not so much (I'm looking at you, Lemon OREO). I'm also the type of guy who thinks there's no such thing as too much creme inside of an OREO. Regular OREO versus a Double Stuf OREO? No contest. I'll double down every single time. In fact, I'll use open up two Double Stufs and combine them to one Double Double Stuf. Yeah, if OREO sold just the creme in a jar, I think our pantry would be lined ...

My Quest to Capture a Can of Planters Cheez Balls

This post contains affiliate links. Sunday, July 1, 2018. That's the date I placed the order for my childhood. It's also the date that Planters officially announced its long-lost Cheez Balls would be back for a limited time only. Yes, I have a very unique love affair with Planters Cheez Balls. And I was so excited about them, and so scared they'd be sold out everywhere, that I ordered them on Amazon. By "them," I mean a case. A case of 12 cans of Cheez Balls. Unfortunately, this was far from straightforward transaction. It turned into an exhausting quest of sorts. I must warn you that the following description of my Cheez Balls' journey ...

Eat It, Thanos. I Made Infinity Stone Cookies!

How do you follow up the baking of an Infinity Gauntlet cake? With super colorful sugary Infinity Stone Cookies, that's how! Thanks to my Level 9 Clearance at S.H.I.E.L.D., I was sent an early Blu-ray edition of Avengers: Infinity War. (Yes, this movie's just as good the third, fourth and fifth viewing!) Packed with super-cool extra featurettes, cut scenes, and the ever-popular gag reel, the Avengers: Infinity War hits Blu-ray on August 14. But what made this early delivery even more special was the secret recipe it came with. Even the Collector would be jealous of this unboxing! Yes, I was sent a brief on The Infinity Stones, an Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt, a ...

True Love Lives On – Planters Cheez Balls Return!

This post contains affiliate links. Shut. The. Door. This had better not be a joke. It best not be a trick. And it's too early for an April Fool's Joke. So it must be true. Yes indeed, Planters is bringing back the greatest snack of all time: Planters Cheez Balls! For those of you born after the '90s, you are in for the most incredible treat. I'm a big fan of cheese balls. Like, my veins bleed orange powder kind of fan. And while some cheese balls are certainly a lot better than others, nothing, as in nothing, compares to Planters Cheez Balls. What makes them so good I think, is the fact they ...
