Better for the consumers of Jalapeño poppers, that is…
That’s not me. I buy peppers for my salsa recipe.

Texan third-grader gets one week’s detention for possession of one single Jolly Rancher candy.
This war on child obesity gets stupider every day. A week’s detention for a piece of candy is overkill any way you look at it; but ironically this poor kid would have likely fared better if she had been caught carrying a 1/4 pound’s worth of pot, or tagging, or indulged in criminal mischief where the damage is less than $500.
No way to teach healthy eating habits, any way you look at it…
Espresso drinks will never be the same. At least the espresso drinks I order…

From Lifehacker. But steaming scrambled egss with an espresso machine? Nice.
Is it just me or are people getting more inventive with bacon in recent years? Anyway, who cares? I’m just glad it’s happening: Bacon Bourbon Caramel Corn.
My favorite one is the Taco Holder set. Hilarious.

I haven’t been following this story very closely, but I have the feeling environmentalism has something to do with it…
I had some errands to run after church this evening, but I got so hungry I just had to make a stop.
Nobel Peace Prize winner, father of the “Green Revolution”, savior of millions of human lives, worldwide.
No, it’s not Al Gore. It’s someone who really is all of the above: Dr. Norman Borlaug, who has passed away.
I learned about him for the first time in the WSJ years ago. And his accomplishments just blew me away. In fact, he may have saved my parents’ lives, since one of his first achievements was realized in Mexico. Fittingly, he received our nation’s largest civilian honor not long ago.
Dr. Norman Borlaug, rest in peace.
So a few days ago, Dr. Fiancee – who likes to keep track of criminal and terrorist organizations here – read on the International Herald Tribune about an enterprising Korean chef in L.A. who’s emerged as a local cult hit with his Mexi-Korean fusion cooking.
One of the coolest things about this chef’s story is how he got around the problem of how expensive it is to open a restaurant in L.A: he mostly operates out of two vans that roam the L.A. area, advertising their changing locations via Twitter.
One of the vans was parked near us some nights ago, and we went out to check it out. Very tasty.
UPDATE: Some pics below. The line was long, but manageable when we got there. We were in line for about an hour before we could order.
