I never thought I'd consider any kind of snoring "cute," but here it is. Who would've thunk that something so tiny could make this kind of noise while sleeping? Or maybe he's not sleeping at all. Maybe this is a conniving ploy to have our attention on him at all times. Who could turn away from the sight and sound of this? His thoughts exactly.
Normally Peking duck takes over 24 hours to make, however this dish — which is inspired by the ingredients used in the traditional Chinese recipe — comes together in twenty short minutes. Duck breasts are used instead of a whole duck, making for a quick cook time. The fragrant, syrup-like sauce is a blend of fresh orange juice, sesame oil, and Sriracha.

I make chili around the Super Bowl and I enjoy cooking up jambalaya to celebrate Fat Tuesday. Jambalaya is a signature Creole dish that combines a variety of ingredients ranging from poultry and sausage to shellfish and green peppers. This classic one-pot rice dish is a must for every cook's recipe collection. It's hearty, scrumptious, and great for entertaining a crowd. I've got two recipes for you to choose from, all you have to do is read more
There's no telling how this pack of quackers got into such a sitch, but they seem to be holding their own here. Methinks they're on a Cinnabon run and the food court happens to be one floor up. But hey, they'll waddle wherever to get them some sweets— the stale bread crumbs served down by the pond are getting a little old, you know?
This past October, I was lucky enough to find myself in Beijing, eating platefuls of Peking Duck. The Quanjude Roast Duck restaurant was established in 1979 and is one of Beijing's "must try" foods. There are actually several locations, and the one I visited did not let me down. The chefs carve the delicious duck table-side and when it hits your lips, it just melts. The fragrant duck meat is complemented by thin crepe-like pancakes, plum/bean sauce and some sliced cucumbers, jalapenos and lettuce. Our feast lasted quite some time, and I only left the restaurant because we had devoured every last bite, and they were closing. I'm pretty sure someone had to roll me out of the place, I was in such a food-coma bliss, that it's a bit of a blur.
So why am I talking about Peking Duck? Well it turns out that today, Jan. 18 is National Peking Duck Day. I thought you might be interested to hear about it, and then I was wondering, have you ever had Peking Duck?
A deboned turkey that's stuffed with a deboned duck that's stuffed with a deboned chicken. The cavity of the chicken is usually filled with sausage, breadcrumbs, or stuffing. Born in the South in the 1980s, it can be braised, roasted, grilled, or barbecued. Many people serve a turducken in place of the turkey on Thanksgiving.
Due to the unprecedented popularity of Quackers, the duck who appeared on Conan's show and left such a lasting impression, the NBC network has decided to let the duck take a "quack" at prime-time television. The show is titled "Quackers The S*?# Eating Duck." I don't know about you, but it looks pretty promising to me!
This duckling and pup team are inseparable! Throw in a cute little girl and some "One Tree Hill"-ish music and it's an interspecies lovin' prime-time drama in the making...
This duckling is going to grow up to be some kind of Nobel Peace Prize winning critter. At this tender age, she's totally altruistic and feeding Koi fish one by one in a pond (where else?) in Japan. The fantastic, surreal, land of Japan.
