Meld will make your existing stove smarter and you a better cook

Before we get to the point where robots are doing cooking for us, the internet of things can help us be better cooks. Cooking is a science and with science it’s all about data. This is why IoT in the kitchen makes perfect sense. A new Kickstarter product duo called Meld monitors what you are cooking using your existing cookware and then actively controlling the temperature on your stove to make sure it’s just right.

Kitchtastic pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix (previously featured here) has promoted breakfast cereal from humdrum to awesome with the creation of this magnificently overindulgent Six-Layer Milk Soaked Cereal Cake with Frosted Flakes Frosting. Sugary cereals were a rare treat when we were little and we pretty much always want cake, so this towering fusion of the two is blowing our minds.

Here are the paired cereal and cake layer flavors from top to bottom:

  • Apple Jacks with Spice Cake
  • Trix with Blue Velvet Cake
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Yellow Cake
  • Peanut Butter Crunch with Chocolate Cake
  • Froot Loops with Red Food Colored White Cake (Red Velvet Cake was not BRIGHT enough!)
  • Cocoa Puffs with White Cake

The entire thing is covered in vanilla Frosted Flakes frosting and decorate with pieces of all the cereals used in the cake’s six layers.

So much cereal. So much cake. SO much sugar. We might swoon.

Jack Bishop and Bridget Lancaster of America’s Test Kitchen share with us their recipe for making iced coffee:

Cold-Brew Coffee Concentrate
Makes about 11/2 cups; enough for 3 cups iced coffee
Start today, enjoy tomorrow

    9    ounces medium-roast coffee beans, ground coarse (31/2 cups)
    31/2    cups filtered water, room temperature
        Kosher salt (optional)

1. Stir coffee and water together in large (about 2‑quart) glass French press. Allow raft of ground coffee to form, about 10 minutes, then stir again to recombine. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours.

2. Line fine-mesh strainer with coffee filter and set over large liquid measuring cup. Place lid on press and slowly and evenly press plunger down on grounds to separate them from coffee concentrate. Pour concentrate into prepared strainer. Line large bowl with triple layer of cheesecloth that overhangs edges. Transfer grounds to cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together and twist; then, holding pouch over strainer, firmly squeeze grounds until liquid no longer runs freely from pouch; discard grounds.

3. Using back of ladle or rubber spatula, gently stir concentrate to help filter it through strainer. Concentrate can be refrigerated in jar with tight-fitting lid for up to 3 days.

To Make Iced Coffee: Combine equal parts coffee concentrate and cold water. Add pinch kosher salt, if using, and pour into glass with ice.

We’re Here We’re Gruyere, Get Used To It Burger
Season 3, Episode 3: Bob Fires The Kids

Oh Oh, Oui Oui!  Zis is a perfectly French burger, combining all of ze glory of French Onion Soup with the tastiness of ze All American ‘Amburger.  This deliciously seasoned burger is topped with caramelized onions and a hefty dose of gruyere cheese. The bun is slathered in Au Jus before toasting, and for funsies we threw in some little baby gerkins too.

This burger was fantastic. “Restaurant Quality” as my friends put it.  Great taste, not too rich, not too complex. Simple and delicious, especially if you love beef and onions.

Sorry for the delay folks, Recipe is below!

So I've never done this before but..

I need to narrow down my list of flavors to recipe test this weekend because there’s no way I can realistically have hundreds of shortbread cookies floating around my house.

Would you guys take this survey to help me narrow down my choices?! ☺️💕
