We know one thing for sure: there is a lot of delicious food being made and eaten out there in Instagram land. Last week, we asked you to upload Instagrams of your coolest culinary happenings with the hashtag #savorysight and we were thrilled by the response. Here are five of our favorite captures from the past week.
We all have our culinary fears. Mine revolve around temperamental dessert recipes that require precision and the right environment to work. Case in point: I am completely intimidated by chocolate soufflés (yet I've promised myself to attack this fear head on in the coming weeks). Once, I also had a horrific experience with a batch of marshmallows, which I don't think I'll ever forget. So I'm wondering, what are the recipes or techniques that intimidate you in the kitchen? Share your answers (and advice!) in the comments.

While we stand by our love and appreciation for happy hour and a smart evening cocktail (or two), there is something to be said about daytime drinking. It's quite nice to be able to enjoy a fancy, adult beverage while the sun is shining. However, there are certain cocktails that are more appropriate to enjoy during waking hours. From bubbly libations that won't knock you off your feet to stronger tipples that should probably be sipped slowly, here are 15 of our favorite daytime cocktails.
Rather than share chocolates and champagne with your significant other or girlfriends on Valentine's Day, pair your bubbly with rose marshmallows instead. Making these fluffy, pillowy marshmallows can be a heart-pounding experiment that requires a little speed, yet the light, melt-in-your-mouth pockets are foolproof if you are prepared and have read the recipe several times.
If you are in a festive mood, use themed cookie cutters for adorable heart-shaped marshmallows. The scraps can easily be cut up into bite-sized pieces that are equally as enjoyable. For an even more decadent treat, dip the marshmallows in white chocolate fondue. Are you ready to add luscious, homemade marshmallows to your culinary repertoire?
Need a crowd-pleaser for your Super Bowl party? Try this chili con carne meat-lover’s dip! With plenty of spicy meat and melty cheese, it really hits the spot. All you’ll need is ground beef, cheddar cheese, salsa, taco seasoning, jalapeño, and onion to whip it up. But don’t be fooled! While this dip may not look pretty, it’s hearty and flavorful and the first dish to go at any party. Watch our video to see how it’s done and print out the recipe here!
At first glance, we were really excited to see this cool shot of chocolate peanut butter cupcakes from wee eatz. But upon further investigation, we realized these cupcakes are actually chocolate-dipped, which is just so much cooler.Chocolate-dipped "hi-hat" cupcakes
Before John Krasinski stole our hearts playing our dream guy on The Office or moonlighted as a journalist out to save the whales in this weekend's Big Miracle, he had a pretty different role on a 2005 CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode. Krasinski plays a crime suspect who seems to be way more concerned about getting linked to drugs than anything else. The reason? He has big plans to eventually attend dental school. Watch our dear, sweet Jim get interrogated:
