Although he'd just given President Obama a lesson on grilling steaks, Bobby Flay was back on the burger track at his seminar in Aspen, where, like fellow Iron Chef Michael Symon, he had plenty of his own venting to do. "I've never met a vegetarian burger that I like," he declared, as he wowed the crowd with a Cheyenne burger (barbecue sauce, bacon, cheddar, and onion rings), garlic-parsley bistro fries, and a chocolate milkshake. "And I can't stand a cheeseburger that's not fully melted." To right all the world's burger wrongs, Bobby offered plenty of pointers for plating the perfect burger patty.

Lately fast food chain Jack in the Box has been getting a lot of publicity. First there was the ad campaign — that debuted at the Super Bowl — in which its brand's fictitious face, Jack, was hit by a bus. Although Jack lies in a coma, the company asked consumers to show their support by enjoying free curly fries and free tacos. Now, Jack's come out of his coma and naturally to celebrate, the chain is giving away fast food, again. All day tomorrow, Tuesday March 10, you can score a free small fry (natural cut or seasoned curly) and fountain drink of your choice. To obtain the food, you'll need to print this coupon. Although Jack is out of his coma, he has yet to speak publicly about his new logo.
While I'm always a fan of free food, all these Jack in the Box giveaways are getting out of control! Will you take advantage of the deal?
The fast food chain's latest advertising campaign, which first aired during this year's Super Bowl, depicts its fictitious CEO "Jack Box" character (yes, the one with the ping-pong head) being struck by a bus. Jack in the Box is now asking you to "show your support for Jack and enjoy some fries."
To land an order of free, medium-sized curly fries, simply print this coupon and present it at participating stores today. What do you think of the chain's new commercials — are they silly or smart?
Sweet potato fries are totally having a moment. They're a more festive alternative to regular russet potatoes and don't necessarily have to be fried. This particular variation is baked in the oven and are seasoned with a soy chili oil before being placed in a pan. They are a lovely companion to roast meats and poultry and they jazz up the classic burger. They would also be wonderful as an appetizer at a holiday cocktail party.

What if I told you that you could make the perfect French fries with only a spoonful of any oil? You'd probably tell me that I was crazy and that I should stop dreaming. Well, it's time to wake up, because the folks at Tefal have actually come up with a device that allows you to do just that. The ActiFry will allow you to prepare genuine fries with just one spoonful of oil! The patented technology circulates hot air around the fries, while the mixing paddle disperses the oil. The technique results in fries that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Personally I think it sounds too good to be true, but you know I'd give it a try. Well maybe if it wasn't for the $300 price tag...
What do you think? Would you give it a try?

We've got a minor french fry problem here at the Sugar HQ. At least once a week someone will announce "french fries in the front." I'm not totally sure how they end up in the office (although there are rumors of
house elves interns grudgingly forced to run across the street to the nearest french fry vendor), but I usually end up partaking in a fry or ten. Well, today is National French Fry day, so I hope that they magically appear. If not we'll just have to make our own. To make your own, check out this classic french fry recipe, just read more
Tonight was one of those nights when I didn't really feel like making an elaborate meal for dinner. Mostly I just didn't want to have to clean up a big huge mess - I know you know what I'm talking about.
Good thing I had a bag of Alexia fries in the freezer. I just baked them in the oven, steamed up some broccoli, carrots, and other veggies, topped them with melted cheese, and dinner was served. Now I know these aren't the world's healthiest food you can eat, but looking at the ingredients, they're not bad for you either.
Alexia makes all kinds of delicious foods. I always keep a couple bags of their frozen fries in my freezer. I love the Olive Oil, Rosemary & Garlic fries, and my girls love the Waffle-Cut Potatoes with Seasoned Salt.
They also make organic frozen fries like Yukon Gold Julienne Fries with Sea Salt. My favorite has got to be the Sweet Potato Fries. When you bake them, they have the perfect combination of a crispy outside and a soft, tender inside.
At the grocery, I also saw that Alexia makes appetizers now too like Mozzarella Stix, Mushroom Bites, Onion Rings, and Pizza Snacks. These may be good to have in case someone pops in for a surprise visit.
Alexia makes their foods out of 100% natural ingredients. Not only that, they're also trans fat free. I can't say that much about mainstream frozen foods.
