I have reheated food in the engine bay of the car a few times whilst traveling.

Believe it or not, there's a book about that.

 

I never purchased that book, but I looked through it many times in bookstores.  First of all, I think "Manifold Destiny" is one of the all-time best American pun titles.  Second, I loved that it gave cooking times in miles instead of hours and minutes. xD

How To Cook A Healthy Baby.

 

In my new rental apartment there is a new induction type microwave -  something I've never used. I have been unable to find an instruction book, but then I can't find anything in this maze of unopened boxes and bags.

I decided to have a look at the control panel, not that it helped much despite being bingual. But I'm delighted that it has a setting for cooking healthy babies to perfection - and you wouldn't want to cook an unhealthy one, would you?

 It is difficult to push the like button for a microwave that cooks babies!  Do you have any clue from the Chinese characters, what is an appropriate translation?

Nope. The English is an accurate translation of the Chinese. I reckon it must be the work of a Swiftian.

...but with the exchange rate and shipping costs, who could afford Irish babies?

Love it! Bully for this guy's sense of humor, but nasty disrespectful behavior in MY kitchen will turn me into a(n) passive-aggressive, screaming (rhymes with witch). I have to admit, that makes his take even funnier. xD

"This is not a broiler, because broil is not a word."

 

"However, the bread roll can also be referred to as a bun, dinner roll, bap, cob, barm, kaiser roll, bread cake, barm cake, batch, muffin, softie, or buttery, depending on where you are. This is a perfectly reasonable state of affairs."

This is a recipe posted in a sailing forum I monitor:

 

BAKED STUFFED CHICKEN

Ingredients:
6-7 lb. chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing
1 cup uncooked popcorn
salt/pepper to taste

 

Method:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt and pepper.
Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. 
Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. 
Listen for popping sounds. 
When the chicken's ass blows the oven door open and the chicken stuffing/popcorn flies across the galley, it is done.

I don't know if there's already a topic devoted to this, but I saw a few of these bottles and had to share...

I gave my brother a collection of goofy hot sauces, and thought I bought them from Penzy's years ago.  I don't think they carry it anymore. Had a huge catalog of them. I do remember getting him the Nuclear Hell hot sauce, the Colon Blaster,  and the Grim Reaper- complete with the black hood and cloak, and a few more. He thought it was hysterical and kept all the bottles.

Pearls Before Swine, on taking pictures of one's food.

LOL Yup. The chef I worked with when I was going to culinary school had a saying: "We may eat with the eyes first, but we eat with the mouth *most.*" She was not one for prettifying plates with frills and furbelows, needless to say.
