Today just about any and every food mold exists. If you want to make a cake in the shape of Super Mario, there is a mold that will get the job done. Molds are not only fun for cakes but for eggs, popsicles, and ice cubes as well. Due to the growing amount of molds that are saved in the Yum Market, it's safe to conclude that molds are an up and coming trend. I want to get my hands on these Rocket popsicle molds that krys786 saved. Can you imagine all of the fun desserts on a stick you could make with them? The possibilities are endless! Scroll the list below to check out more magnificent molds.

While cruising around on TeamSugar, I came across member daisymae051479's post for an inexpensive vegetable broth. They go through a lot of veggies and aromatics in her household and instead of tossing the odds and ends out, she turns them into veggie broth! I loved her clever thinking and had to share it with all of you. To find out her technique, read more
Yesterday I told you how I used tomatoes to create an inexpensive and elegant decoration for a party. Well I also used grapes! I'm not the best floral arranger and my long stemmed red Gerber daisies were flopping all over the place. "Too bad you don't have little red marbles or shiny stones," remarked Emily who was helping prep for the party. There wasn't enough time to run to Michael's and buy some so instead I got creative. This makes for a beautiful centerpiece of the month because it's simple, sunny, and stylish. Here's what you do to make a fun Dr. Suess-ish floral arrangement:
- Fill a vase about half way with water.
- Toss in enough grapes to create a shallow layer along the bottom of the vase.
- Gently stab the flower stems into place between the grapes.
As a kid I was crazy for processed treats like Twinkies and Ho-Hos. However, once I got to college, I made a vow to eat as few as I possibly could. So tell me, why am I so intrigued by the new Banana flavored Twinkies? Does it have something to do with banana being the original Twinkie flavor and how it's the first time since WWII that Hostess has featured it as a "regular" flavor? I'm not really sure, but I strangely want to try them. How about you, will you hunt down Banana Twinkies?
Note: It has actually been a limited edition flavor several times since WWII, most recently for the release of the King Kong DVD.

At a recent wine tasting, YumSugar and I were attracted to one bottle in particular: Y3 Chardonnay. We loved the sleek and chic appearance. The wine with its crisp, clean, freshly acidic taste and bright, rich aromas made it highly drinkable and totally food-friendly. The winery is owned and run by Kimberly Jackson and it's an exclusive wine seen on many episodes of HBO's Entourage. When Vinnie, E, & Co. are sipping Char while out at one of LA's hottest eateries, it's most likely they are sipping a bottle from the Jax Y3 label. At only $18.00 a bottle this is an affordable must drink-get a bottle today to enjoy while you watch. Just in time for the season premiere of the 4th season of Entourage this Sunday, we got an exclusive interview with Kimberly!

With the recent frightful pet food scare, many people have turned to making their own pet food or going to organic, high-end solutions. A London bakery has decided to take it to the next step by creating treats that can be enjoyed by pets and owners alike.
The Alldog Bakery is proudly stamping their products as, "made with human quality ingredients," and their range includes treats such as Honey Hearts (wholemeal flour, maize meal, milk, honey and coconut), Carob Crunch (heart shaped carob cookies), Liver Love (savory crackers with a hint of garlic) and Doggy Doughnut. All of which are made with natural ingredients, no preservatives or additives. They're good for you and your pup, but I don't know if your dentist would approve, apparently they're "much harder than human biscuits to suit dogs' teeth".
Never underestimate the extreme flavor power of fresh squeezed citrus juice. The acidity stops foods from oxidizing and adds a bright unprocessed taste to quick fix foods. The juice from one orange is used to jazz up a simple beef stir-fry. Stir-frys are excellent because they can be made rapidly and provide a mixture of tender meat, crisp vegetables, and sticky rice. You'll give Rachael Ray a run for her money when you make this savory stir-fry in under thirty minutes or less so get the recipe now and read more
For my Father's Day picnic at the Nascar races I'm keeping the decor simple with a theme based on the invitation inspired by classic racing red, black, and white. I'll put the food on a plastic folding table and cover it with a black and white checkered tablecloth. The drinks will be in a collapsible red cooler. To ensure that the guests can find us I'll tie a few balloons to the table ends and place one beautiful bouquet of white flowers on the table. Since this is a sporting event music doesn't really play an incredibly important role. Instead of bringing a portable stereo, I'll make cds of BuzzSugar's Father's Day playlist to hand out as party favors.
