For an ice cream lover, even the Winter months can't keep 'em from scooping away. Luckily there are glorious seasonal flavors to discover. McConnell's Peppermint Stick ($10) is for true ice cream connoisseurs who don't mind shipping ice cream in. But for an easily accessible peppermint-flavored ice cream, there's always Dreyer's Peppermint Wonderland ($7). We tasted them side by side to see which pepperminty ice cream reigns supreme. Take a look at the reviews.

Like many, Peeps played an integral part in the Easter celebrations of my youth. Almost too cute to eat and with a pleasantly spongy texture punctuated by a dense and crackly coating of sugar, they were the treat I yearned for year round. So it was a touch bittersweet to discover a few years back that Just Born (the Peeps parent company) had decided to spawn seasonal sweets for nearly any occasion. Sure, I could get my fix at a moment's notice, but as with many treats with a limited season, when their availability escalated, their sparkle diminished.
Given my aforementioned feelings, I was a bit unsure how to feel about these spiced gingerbread men. Would they be a welcome addition to the chubby chick and cheery bunny fold, or would they fall flat? Moreover, would Peeps translate well beyond the classic vanilla flavor?

Bad news for hot-sauce devotees: the nation's sriracha supply is once again in jeopardy. The city of Irwindale, CA, requested to shut down the Huy Fong factory that produces America's best-known sriracha after complaints that a fiery odor was causing burning eyes and throats; yesterday, Judge Robert H. O'Brien sided with the city of Irwindale, forcing Huy Fong to stop operations.
The case could still go to trial, but things don't look good for the producer of the fiery condiment. Our advice? Hoard the sriracha. Otherwise, the following foods will never be the same.
The original sriracha combo. If you don't think this looks good, then there's something very wrong with you.
Actually, Noodles of Any Kind
Noodles are just a vehicle for sriracha.
Look at that single, beautiful fried egg just quivering with red rooster sauce.
