Frozen Lemon Cup Recipe

BY Lisa in Eat Me

When I was 12 my family took a trip around Italy. Aside from the beautiful sights, it was the Italian cuisine that had the most impact on me. While in Florence, we dined at a quaint, family-owned restaurant called the Scoiattolo. My brother and I had a tasty, fun dessert there that inspired this recipe for frozen lemon cups. These adorable treats can be an easy, inexpensive addition to a dinner party, or a sweet ending to a romantic meal that just might seal the deal! Frozen Lemon Cup Start by cutting off the top of a lemon, about ¾ from the bottom of the fruit. Read More

Picture this: You're walking alone late at night, minding your own business, when suddenly you realize you're being followed. What do you do? How about turning the corner and  pulling your skirt over your head? That's exactly what an inventor in Japan thinks women should do if they find themselves in these circumstances. Designer Aya Tsukioka's skirt can be worn by day, then turned into a (realistic?) vending-machine disguise when needed, simply by flipping it over one's head. Of course, there are some limitations to this brilliant idea. Read More

Ink, Y'all!

BY Web Intern in Eat Me

Sometimes there really isn't a good way to start this other than to just jump in with the meat of the story, so that's what I'm going to do. There is a young woman in this world with a Paula Deen tattoo. Lindsey Mitchell was apparently so enamored of the southern cook that she got a tat of a stick of butter with the words ''butter, y'all.'' I'm not going to judge anyone for their ink choices. This isn't even the craziest idea I've seen (the same site has a post about a woman with Rachael Ray's face on her back - that might take the poorly-made, 30-minute cake if you ask me). Read More

...for men. Pfizer just launched a program last week that will provide free medicines for newly unemployed Americans, including Viagra. The new program, MAINTAIN (Medicines Assistance for Those who Are in Need), will focus on helping those who have lost their jobs (and health insurance) recently. Of course they're not handing it out like candy; you have to meet the requirements of eligibility in order to receive the benefits of the company's program. So, men can get their groove on...
