This probably isn't from Chili's or Applebee's.

Josh Androsky, AKA Li’l Joshy Wonderful, joins us once again to answer some of the questions that were too pressing for anyone to actually ask.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy Fancy Cookie Mixes

Chocolate Chip Cookies

We enter into many unspoken contracts in modern society. If you hold the elevator door for me, I’ll do a little half-shuffle-run. If you ask me to take care of your ferret for the weekend, I’ll promise not to eat that ferret unless I absolutely have to. Likewise, when I visit an artisanal bakery or […]

Subscription Meal Services Are a Waste of Time and Money

Rice grains on bank note

When I was a kid, my mother’s version of a home-cooked meal entailed frying individual slices of ham and serving them alongside Minute Rice, or smothering chicken breasts in marinara sauce and artlessly topping them with canned black olives. If this is cooking, I thought, I want no part of it. As a result, I […]

The Home Dollar Menu: Three Meals for Three Bucks Each

Dollar Burger

The convenience of fast food can be enticing: You walk in to a brightly-lit and familiar mecca, take a look at the menu, and get handed a tray of food that tastes exactly the same as every other burger, nugget, or Mega-Stuff’d Enchirito you’ve ever had. Sure, it’s been processed to the point it barely […]

It began as the 16th century Swedish schnapps table (brännvinsbord), then later the 18th century pre-dinner smorgasbord, which went international at the 1939 Worlds Fair, along with irradiated toothpaste and home dentistry.

[VIDEO] Fancy Fast Food Burger Showdown with Josh Androsky

Which is the fanciest burger in town?

These days a fast food burger isn’t happy just being a greasy, unpretentious fast food burger. They all put on airs and dress themselves up like they’re something you’d eat in the back of a towncar in Dubai. We’ve all seen the fancy ads, but are these newfangled high-class burgers any good? Josh Androsky sacrifices […]

What Food Labels Really Mean

What Food Labels Really Mean

So you want to be a good person. But you also want to buy some carrots. Shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish both, right? You go to the grocery store, however, and find yourself inundated with confusing labels: Free Trade, Organic, Cage Free, Free Range, Natural, Made With Limited Nazi Involvement, Non-Toxic, Very Very Toxic […]

The Cheapest and Most Effective Ways to Juice

Some green juice

Healthy habits are hard. You can tell because it’s so easy to find a Bowflex in a thrift store or on Craigslist. Eating healthy isn’t necessarily more fun than exercise. Juicing is the best way to get fruits and vegetables in your body without having to actually eat said fruits and vegetables. I am a child […]

The Super Bowl is happening — or should we say appening! That’s right, we’re talking about appetizers for that Super Bowl party, and Josh Androsky joins us to set the record straight.

When Can You Ignore The Expiration Date?

Pizza dog

Here’s a dirty little secret – expiration dates are baloney (including the expiration dates on baloney). They exist primarily to protect the reputation of the food and have very little to do with food safety. Companies use expiration dates to ensure their products taste as fresh as possible, and possibly to force particularly stupid shoppers […]

Top 5 Thanksgiving Meals For When You’ve Given Up

We all know Thanksgiving has only a few more ‘good’ years left in it before it gets completely swallowed by the ever-expanding borders of the Christmas Season.  As such, it certainly seems harder and harder to put in any effort at all to keep the traditions going year in and year out.  If you’re finding your […]

Chicken is one of the healthiest and cheapest meats to eat.

Halloween is the greatest. It is both scary and full of candy, two unrelated themes that somehow work perfectly together. But Halloween can get expensive quickly.
