Burger of the Week #249

I just googled "bedazzled burger" because I thought certainly this isn't a thing. I was wrong. 

This is from a pinterest board called "Bling Decor". My favorite post on this board was the pink bedazzled KitchenAid stand mixer.

Burger of the Week #248

I leave for vacation tomorrow, but I'll be staying in the States, which means I will not be in a burgerless-nation, like Nick from SeriousEats, who went in search of a burger whilst in Italy, and all he found was this picture on the side of a food cart.

Nothing more American than a burger from a can.

Burger of the Week #247

This week's BOTW is brought to life by puppet and prop maker Randy Carfagno. Nothing's creepier than the prospect of your food taking a bite out of you!

A Toast 'To the Banished'

So I pick out wine the same way I pick out books... I judge them by their covers.

The other day I bought a bottle called 19 Crimes, it had a beautiful matte finish bottle and a mugshot.
When we uncorked it, on the cork it said,
"10. Stealing fish from a pond or river."

And I immediately knew that every bottle must be corked with one of 19 crimes. I love this sort of marketing. But what were these random crimes?

According to the 19 Crimes website, "For the violation of one of 19 crimes, thousands of people were exiled from England to Australia during the 18th and 19th century. This was known as Punishment by Transportation."

"The men featured on our wine labels are not those of fiction. They were flesh and blood. Criminals, artists and scholars."

These men became the first settlers of a new nation.... Australia.

The hero of the 19 Crimes story is an Irishman named John Boyle O'Reilly, who, in 1867, traveled on the last transport ship, the Hougoumont, to Australia. You can read his story and how he ended up in Philadelphia on

Oh, and the website is just as beautiful as their wine bottles.The wine, however, was just ok.
