    Jello is just weird. Do you ever spend time thinking about the stuff? It's wiggly and transparent, it comes in any unnatural color you could ask for, it sort of stands up on its own, but in a totally unreliable way. You can put stuff in it. You can set it into all kinds of crazy shapes. And ... it's food?!? Well, it's edible, anyway.

    It's even weird to eat, the way you can't exactly chew it, but you don't drink it, either. And yet, I do so admire what people do with the stuff. So while you'll be hard-pressed to get me to actually consume the stuff, I want to share some photos of some truly insane Jello creations for us all to appreciate. Happy Freaky Friday!

    Ever give your hot dog toppings much thought? Maybe you don't, because you have more important things to ponder, like how to lower your mortgage interest and how to get the kids to quit fighting in the back seat without yelling. But the toppings you choose for your hot dog can actually say a whole lot about you (said no scientist ever, but stay with me on this). I mean, think about it -- what is it about you that causes you to choose ketchup but not relish? So let's go there. Let's use your hot dog toppings to probe your psychology.*

    Every year for the Fourth of July, my family gathers for a day of barbecuing, music, and sparklers. I always like to contribute a new dish to the potluck and this year is no exception. I scoured Pinterest for a patriotic dessert and decided to attempt a July 4th trifle!

    A trifle is nothing more than a sponge cake topped with layers of fruit and cream. Sounds foolproof, but I have a tendency to mess up even the simplest of recipes. I bought the sponge cake at the store, but let's see how all the layering goes ...

    Well who knew Real Housewife of Orange County Alexis Bellino was secretly a budding barista all this time? Alexis just revealed to Bravo, "I've always had a passion or dream to open up a coffee shop." It'll be "really sleek, chic", and there will be NO WAITING ever, because OC housewives have to get their foreheads done immeds, okay? It's all about community for Alexis. "I just think it's a really cool thing to be the first thing people wake up to every day."

    Okay, so we've got the look, we've got the concept (you walk in and go, OMG, is that Alexis Bellino? Am I sleepwalking again? What a nightmare.). But ... what will Alexis serve? I mean, not will Alexis herself serve literally, I mean what will her people serve. WHAT'S ON THE MENU? That's what I want to know.

    Snooki is feeling so domestic these days as a new mama. She just posted a photo of TWO fruit salads she made with the caption, "Made yummy fruit salad!!!! I'm such a mom." Aw, both salads really do look yummy. (One is all strawberries?) But wait a minute there, what's especially "mom" about making a fruit salad? Is this something Snooki never saw anyone in the Jersey Shore crew make?

    And the answer is no, because there's no booze in fruit salad, silly! No, but seriously, does making certain foods make you "such a mom"? If so, what would those foods be?
