Saturday Morning Breakfast - Vitantonio Mickey Mouse Waffler

We've got a special treat today. During the clean-up of their house, a friend of mine came across this old Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker and asked if we'd like to have it. I know a couple of kids who happen to love Disney, so yes! Absolutely!

Flamin Hot Chips Taste Test

Theresa is a big fan of spicy foods and Flamin Hot chips are pretty high on the list of favorites. There's at least 15 unique Flamin Hot style chips, and today (which happens to be Mothers Day), we're going to taste 5 of them. 

If there's any question what the color of Flamin Hot is, it's a dark fiery red.

National Strawberry Picking Day - actually we're picking Mulberries - May 20th

Today is National Strawberry Picking Day. Ordinarily we might be able to go to a strawberry farm and actually pick a basket of strawberries, but with this quarantine, we're not all that free to be out and about. Instead, we're going to change that into Mulberry picking day. Close enough for us.

Making Cinnamon Twists 6 different ways - And how not to make Cinnamon Twists

Back when we did Taco Bell at Home, one of the things we made were cinnamon twists. I had never made these before, so it was fascinating seeing how these little wheat pellets in different shapes could expand to be 3-4 times their original size once they were deep fried in oil.
Seeing how they reacted in the oil, I was very curious to try out a few different ways to cook these up.

So, here's 6 different ways to cook Duros. We're going to cook them up Boiled, Baked - covered, Bakes - uncovered, Deep Fried, Microwaved, and with a Magnifying Glass.
These are all unflavored. Once we figure out our favorite way, we'll make a batch and dust them with cinnamon and sugar.
