Try Monica’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe From The Upcoming ‘Friends’ Cookbook

Published

on

Could I be any more excited about these cookies?

Friends may have ended its initial run over 15 years ago but the impact it left on pop culture has withstood the test of time. Aren’t we all still pining for the Ross to our Rachel? Haven’t you spent years trying to come up with an alias as influential as Regina Phalange?  Don’t you and your roommate spend most nights trying to master the game of cups…ok that last one might just be me. In any event, the beloved sitcom has found yet another way to wiggle its way into our homes with the release of an upcoming cookbook, “Friends: The Official Cookbook,” expected to hit shelves this fall. Since it’s 2020 and the year is moving by at a glacial pace, news of an upcoming book simply won’t keep us satisfied. Luckily for us, a few pages of the book are available as a sneak peek and Yahoo has shared one with the recipe for “Chocolate Chip Cookies The French Way” from the episode “The One With Phoebe’s Cookies.”

In case you haven’t seen the episode recently in one of the many rerun marathons on various networks, in this episode Monica asks Phoebe for her grandmother’s secret chocolate chip cookie recipe so she can be the mom who makes the best cookies. After Phoebe reveals that the recipe was lost in her recent apartment fire, they try to recreate the recipe by tasting the last remaining cookie Phoebe had in her freezer. After 22 attempts at replicating the recipe it’s discovered that the “friend” from whom Phoebe’s grandmother learned the recipe was none other than Nestlé Tollhouse…aka the major Swiss food and beverage company. In Phoebe’s disappointment she looks down at the floor and screams to her dead grandmother “It’s because of stuff like this that you’re BURNING IN HELL! ” which only solidifies my theory that Phoebe Buffay is the best character ever.

Well instead of wasting 22 batches of cookie dough on an almost perfect cookie, although one batch did make Ross vomit, you can simply just follow the recipe listed in the upcoming book. The trick seems to be refrigerating the dough several times throughout the process but according the Yahoo, these will be the best cookies you ever make. Here’s the recipe:

Yum, sounds even better than Emma’s inappropriate, phallic-shaped 1st birthday cake.

The official cook book is expected to hit shelves on September 22nd. For more on Yahoo’s experience baking the cookies, click here.

No One Asked For It But Brach’s Just Launched ‘Thanksgiving Dinner’ Candy Corn That Tastes Like Turkey, Stuffing And Green Beans

Published

This year, give thanks for meat-flavored candy.

Ever sat at the dinner table on Thanksgiving thinking “hmm, everything in this meal would make for excellent candy flavors”? Me neither. Somehow, someone over at Brach’s did think that and now “Thanksgiving Dinner” flavored candy corn is hitting shelves across the nation.

The new bags of candy corn are available at Walgreens and include flavors such as roasted turkey, green beans, ginger-glazed carrot, sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce. Yum. The candies are sold in 12oz bags so you can enjoy those fantastic flavors swirling around your mouth for a while.

Instagram account @puppreviews tried all six flavors and shared that most of them were surprisingly quite tasty. The glazed carrot, sweet potato pie, green beans and cranberry sauce were all said to be delicious while the turkey and stuffing were described as “taboo” and “downright wrong to be in candy.”

Brach's Turkey Dinner candy corn: That's right! Brachs went all out and all, weird this year with a bag of candy corn brandishing SIX different flavors! Listed below is our impression on each along with what we believed the color combination was, in case you try them yourself. We admit, some of the flavors are hard to differentiate, so let us know if you think otherwise! Green Beans (all green): Sweet with that field-fresh after taste. Honestly, kind of enjoyable. Turkey (Yellow bottom, brown tip): We'd say odd, but that would be forgiving. This flavor is downright wrong to be in candy, but still enjoyed the taboo experience. Cranberry sauce (all red): Also delicious! Kind of sour-sweet. Carrot (all orange): Sweet and delicious with a little bit of spice! Sweet potato pie (white bottom, orange tip): Amazing! Great cinnamon flavor on the after taste. Stuffing (brown bottom, white tip): Another forbidden fruit like the turkey one. Credit to @connorpupp for the release information.

Cheetos Is Making Dinner Dangerously Cheesy With New Line Of Mac ‘N Cheese

Published

on

Can hardly wait to try this cheetah’s cheddar.

Whether you like it creamy, crumb-coated or conventional, macaroni and cheese is a dish that is hard to improve on. Sure you can add bacon or lobster or try something wacky like frying it up but when it comes down to it, mac and cheese is pretty much perfect as is. Or so I thought. Frito Lay just announced their new line of Cheetos flavored Mac ‘n Cheese and I take back everything I just said.

The dangerously cheesy new line is exploding into pasta aisles with three exciting flavors all “made with authentic Cheetos cheesiness using Chester’s Top-Secret Seasoning.” You’ll be able to choose from Bold and Cheesy, Cheesy Jalapeño and Flamin’ Hot. Oh choosing just one is practically like Sophie’s Choice. Of the new product line Rachel Ferdinando, SVP, CMO Frito-Lay North America said “We’ve seen incredible culinary creativity from our Cheetos fans through the years, taking our product and using as an actual ingredient in recipes—whether at restaurants, or now more than ever, at home. Cheetos Mac ‘n Cheese borrows that culinary inspiration to provide a mischievous mashup of an ordinary fan favorite. We’re putting our orange-dusted fingerprints on an at-home staple at a time when home mealtime occasions are on the rise.”

To get your fingers, which ironically won’t be covered in Cheetos dust after eating this, on a box of Cheetos Mac ‘n Cheese simply head to your closest Walmart or order online here. All three flavors come in either 5.7 ounce boxes or a smaller, single serving cup. Although, whoever can simply have one single serving cup deserves a medal to be honest.

Published

on

Can’t host a food fest this year? Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing.

The annual Wing Fest, hosted by Off The Menu, had to get creative when it came to this year’s food festival. Since 2020 has just been one giant epic fail after another the public cannot convene in one space to enjoy the scrumptious snack that is the chicken wing. Rather than canceling or postponing the event, Off The Menu has partnered with Uber Eats to create the Wing Showdown: a fundraising event where consumers vote for the wings that belong to their favorite celebrities.

Beginning on July 29th and running through August 2nd, celebrities like Tyra Banks, Snoop Dogg, Anthony Anderson and Haylie Duff will partner with restaurants so their wings can be delivered straight to your door. Each celebrity contestant will also post a video sharing their recipe on the Showdown siteso you can make each variation from home if you prefer a truly distant experience. Here’s what each celeb has cooked up:

  • Shaquille O’Neal – Shaq’s Big Chicken Hot Wings come coated in Nashville-style hot sauce
  • Haylie Duff – Haylie’s Honey Buffalo Wings feature a Texas-style dry rub and a sweet-and-spicy buffalo sauce
  • Jessie James Decker – “Just Feed Me” Chicken Wings are Jessie James Decker’s wings, which come grilled and spiced with Cajun seasoning
  • Tyler Cameron – Tyler’s Tangy Wings, from Tyler Cameron, get smoked in a brown sugar dry rub, then tossed in BBQ sauce
  • Snoop Dogg – Get Tha Chip” Fried Chicken Wings are Snoop’s signature wings, and they’re coated in potato chips and then deep fried
  • Phil Heath – Mr. Olympia’s Cheat Meal Wings are Phil Heath’s wings, fried and tossed in a honey Sriracha glaze
  • Anthony Anderson – Anthony’s Sticky, Garlicky Salt & Pepper Wingsare Anthony Anderson’s wings come twice-fried and doused in garlic sauce and three types of pepper
  • Zac Posen – The “Wingin’ It With Zac” option is Posen’s signature wings, and they’re topped with a honey and soy sauce blend
  • Tyra Banks – Tyra’s “Smize With Your Wings” are fried and tossed in a sweet-and-spicy maple glaze
  • Jo Koy – Koydobo Wings are Jo Koy’s wings, and a take on his family’s Filipino adobo chicken recipe

Once you’ve tried all 10 wings…ok I guess you don’t have to try all ten but what else do you have going on in quarantine?!…then simply go to the Off The Menu site to vote. The wings range in price from $12-$16 with proceeds from the contest going to charities like the Center For Policing Equity. And don’t worry if you’re not based in L.A, the Wing Showdown spans over nine cities this year NYC, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago and Toronto.
