Since then, imitators have been brewing up beers in this frothy, balanced, and eminently refreshing style in full force. While they do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I, like many, hold a soft spot in my heart for the original. So when we cracked open a few bottles for an officewide taste test, I was only slightly surprised at the general outcry of praise for the Bohemian brew.

When YumSugar editor Susannah recently came back from her trip through German wine country bearing packages of Ritter Sport chocolates, we nearly jumped for joy. Ever curious, we chomped, crunched, and savored nearly every flavor on offer in the US (and a few new flavors now on American shores) to see which are worth indulging in.

Great lines indeed. It was a rare opportunity to see another side of the stars of Food Network, who puts on the yearly festival; everyone from the bubbly Rachael Ray to the modest Eric Ripert cracked a dirty sex joke (or 10). Although Bourdain was the subject of the roast, there were plenty of other subjects of interest, primarily Guy Fieri's douchiness, Mario Batali fat jokes, and Ray's inability to cook. Catch up with the best lines you missed from last night's shockingly irreverent, profanity-filled comedy roast of Anthony Bourdain.
It's time to get stacking in the kitchen: everything from mugs, measuring cups, and even bowls is moving on up. These tall measures are not only practical, especially in small kitchen spaces, but they're also often stylish and unique. Aside from being fully functional, many of these kitchen gadgets are modeled after fun designs such as fruit, vintage milk bottles, or even matryoshka dolls.
Although this trend is making a comeback in stores such as Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and even Target, stackables were popular in the 1960s and 1970s, mostly featuring bright colors (and yes, a little flower power). Whether you are measuring, pouring, or displaying, these stackable sets are perfect for both quirky and classic kitchens. How's that for a good measure?

If you like cookies that are salty and sweet, just add nuts!
