Baked Potato Recipes That Can Count As Dinner

There was a time when baked potatoes were exciting. Sadly, over the years they've lost some of their sparkle in people's eyes (and stomachs). We're here to bring them back because baked potatoes -- when made right -- are truly amazing. Like, skip-dinner-and-just-eat-a-potato amazing. Making a baked potato great is not just about knowing how to properly bake (or microwave) one -- though that does help. It's about the loads and loads of toppings you can stack on top of ...

Apple Pie Recipes That Are Better Than Grandma's

Apples are a treat in the fall. Biting into a crisp, sweet apple on a cool fall day has the potential to make us feel excited that summer has once again come to an end. The great thing about apples, aside from their delicious flavor, is that when stored right they have the ability to last all throughout winter. So even though the season has come to an end, we get to enjoy them for many months more. Winter apples just beg ... Read more

Nick Offerman's 'Yule Log' Is Better Than Having A Real Fireplace

What's better than sitting next to a fireplace sipping scotch? Sitting next to Nick Offerman sitting next to a fireplace sipping scotch. In "Nick Offerman's 'Yule Log,'" the comedian, performer, craftsman, scotch appreciator (and life-goal for most men) sniffs, sips and contemplates the wonderful world of whisky, specifically Lagavulin, in a worn leather chair for 45 minutes (Sometimes he nods subtly with affirmation, sometimes he seems to have fallen asleep with his eyes open, but it's not creepy ...

Filtered Craft

Lately, I keep telling the same story. It feels urgent, though its takeaway is not revelatory or at all new. When we were 16, our blood still a puzzle in mid-figuration, my friends and I would pay $10.00 each to heft proudly, like a painter's box, six-packs of Bell's Oberon down to a beach on Lake Michigan. If you drink beer you've likely heard of Oberon by now, or at least seen it on store shelves--the azure box ... Read more

Chocoholism: The Science Behind Why You're Powerless Against Chocolate

By: Alexandra Duron Credit: Drew Swantak/Thrillist Chocolate has been irresistible for ages: the Aztecs used it as currency, the Spaniards kept it a secret from neighboring countries for about a century, and the average American eats 9.5lbs of it in one year. It's safe to say we're all obsessed with chocolate... and we may even be addicted to it. So, if you've proclaimed chocolate as your drug of choice, you're not alone. But what is it about chocolate that turns some people from dabblers ... Read more

There's A Growing Sushi Robot Industry In Japan, And It's Awesome

Every sushi lover has that one spot they love to indulge themselves in every so often. Sure, it may not be a world-class restaurant or a questionable all-you-can-eat buffet, but it's usually a place that's a perfect harmony of both. For perspective, my local sushi watering hole has a four-page menu of colorful sushi rolls that you can order individually, or pay up to thirty bucks for the all-you-can-eat option. The choices for rolls seemed endless thanks to the chef's creativity in ... Read more

Tropical Carrot Cake

True confession, I ate 1/4 of this cake by myself before pleading with my husband to take it to work. It started innocently enough, a bite here, a bite there. Then it turned into a sliver here and a sliver there. Before I knew it, my beautiful 8 inch cake looked like Pacman incarnate. Damn you delicious cake, I was doing pretty well with my sugar intake until you came along. Public service announcement: share ... Read more

Pizza Delivery Man Overcome With Emotion After Receiving This Tip

Rice cookers are much more versatile than the name lets on. Whether you're a rogue chef experimenting with new kitchen tools or a college student looking for a be-all and end-all appliance, this gadget might be everything you need and more.
