Didn’t anyone give these a proofreading?

Not just any shredded meat, child shredded meat.

We have a couple questions for the folks who thought that giving their foods these poorly-thought-out names would be a good idea. One, didn’t you run them by someone who speaks English? Two, did you actually think that they’d sound appetizing, or were you just going for a laugh? We can understand the chicken Cordon Bleu balls, because that’s actually pretty funny and didn’t get lost in translation, but for the rest, we have a feeling that the folks who came up with these names were completely ignorant to the fact that they were being hilarious.

Breast Munchies

It’s chicken breasts, get your mind out of the gutter.

Only Puke

Don’t worry, it’s only puke!

Chicken Cordon Blue Balls

Apparently this is a pretty common bar snack up in Rochester. It’s probably tasty, but the rest of the country calls them chicken cordon blue bites for a reason.

Tastes Like Grandma Blackberry Jam

How do you know what Grandma tastes like?

Paula Deen Butt Massage

They should probably make it a little more obvious that it’s for pork butts… unless it isn’t.

Child Shredded Meat

What kind of shredded meat is it, exactly? Child.

Worst American Food- Some of the Weirdest Things People Eat in Different US States

People oftentimes forget just how vast of a country the US actually is. The country consists of 50 states and every state has different local traditions, different food, and different ways of doing things. That&rsquos why the food eaten in one state may shock some people in a lot of other states. Naturally, every state has its own quirks that most locals find normal but people outside of their state find weird, and sometimes even disgusting. If you find this hard to believe, keep reading here&rsquos the worst American food you&rsquoll find in every state!

What temperature should a refrigerator be?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the recommended refrigerator temperature is below 40ଏ the ideal freezer temp is below 0ଏ.

However, the ideal refrigerator temperature is actually lower: Aim to stay between 35° and 38ଏ (or 1.7 to 3.3ଌ). This temperature range is as close as you can get to freezing without being so cold your food will freeze. It’s also as close as the refrigerator temperature should get to the 40ଏ threshold, at which point bacteria begin multiplying rapidly.

Temperatures above the 35° to 38ଏ zone may be too high. Your food may spoil quickly, and you could set yourself up for some tummy troubles with bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.

For an easy-to-check guide to the best temperature for your refrigerator, refer to our chart for refrigerator and freezer temperatures. See a printable version here.


Tamales are a key food for celebrations and holidays in Mexico, including Dia de los muertos. Because they are so intricate and time consuming to make, it&rsquos common for tamales to be made as a family for special occasions. Tamal fillings vary by region. It&rsquos also common to leave your loved ones&rsquo favorite foods on their altar, so you may choose what type of filling to use based on what type of tamales your loved ones liked best.

Cassava (Yuca) 101

In a small bowl, combine ketchup ingredients and mix until well-combined. Cover and set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine mojo ingredients and mix until well-combined. Season with salt to taste, cover and set aside.

Peel yuca, split in half crosswise, and cut into thick batons. Add to a large pot and cover with cold water by 2 inches. Season well with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to a simmer, and cook until tender, about 12 &ndash15 minutes. Drain and spread out on paper towel to dry.

While yuca is draining, heat oil to 350ºF in a large heavy pot, cast iron skillet or Dutch oven. Line a plate or tray with paper towels and set aside. Working in batches, add yuca and fry, flipping frequently, until golden brown and crisp, about 3&ndash5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined tray to drain. Transfer to a bowl, toss with 2 tablespoons of prepared mojo until evenly coated.

Transfer fries to a platter, sprinkle with cotija, garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with ketchup and remaining mojo on the side.

Note: If using frozen yuca fries, prepare the fries according to package directions.

What is cassava or yuca?

Cassava or yuca (joo-kah) is a starchy tubular root like a potato, and is not to be confused with yucca (yuck-ah), which is an unrelated fruit-bearing shrub. Believe it or not, this is where we get tapioca: the cassava root is dried and ground to a powder to make tapioca. Yes, that tapioca pudding or bubble tea all started with yuca! Other names for cassava or yuca are Brazilian arrowroot and manioc.

What does it look like?

It is long and tapered at the end, with a brown, almost bark-like skin and bright white flesh. It averages between 6 to 12 inches long and 2 to 4 inches in diameter. When purchased at grocery stores, yuca is covered in wax to help preserve it during its long journey.

Where does it come from?

Yuca is found all year round and grows in tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including Asia, Africa, Caribbean, and Latin America.

I can&rsquot speak much for yuca in other countries, but in Puerto Rico, it&rsquos a significant part of our food culture and makes regular appearances at the dinner table. Unlike plantains, yuca is native to Puerto Rico and was the main crop of the indigenous people, the Taínos. The crop was so abundant and significant to them that their major god was Yúcahu, which means spirit or giver of cassava. It was believed that Yúcahu lived at the top of El Yunque, Puerto Rico&rsquos rainforest, and produced the rains that gave life to grow yuca.

What is Keto?

Keto—short for Ketogenic— is a recently popular diet that promotes weight loss in the body by burning fat instead of sugar (glucose).

When you’re in “ketosis”, your body turns fat into “ketones” in the liver, which is used for energy. (1)

Sound a little complicated?

Don’t worry, all you need to know is that for “ketosis” to take place, your diet needs to consist of roughly:

Now, that is a lot more fat than usually recommended.

What on earth does a typical diet look like with THAT breakdown?

Lucky for you, I’ve put together a simple Keto Diet food list, so you don’t have to worry. Just make sure you:

  1. Bookmark this page for future reference
  2. Pin this to your favourite keto Pinterest boards
  3. Print out and keep in the kitchen to share with the family

All sorted? Cool. Let’s get on with the show!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Spread the softened butter on one side of each slice of bread.

Lay one slice of bread, butter side down, in a non-stick frying pan.

Put two slices of cheese on the bread.

Now cover it with the other slice of bread with the buttered side up.

Turn the stove on medium heat and place the pan on the stove.

After about 2-3 minutes it should be ready to flip.

The second side will take a lot less time to turn golden brown because the pan is already heated up.

Slice the grilled cheese on a cutting board with one swift downward motion slice through the sandwich.

Junn Bug said:

Lookin’ mighty tasty!! I’m gonna try this one next time I go grocery shop for sure!

Leif Larsson said:

I often use your videos in my English classes. And for that purpose I put in subtitles to make it easier for my students. But this time I’m stumped: … First, . white bread, second, two slices…

Kevin S said:

Had this last night. Cook up some tomato soup (with milk, not water), then dunk your grilled cheese right in to soak up the soup. Delicious!

Kathy Maister said:

Hi Leif, “Hearty” white bread refers to bread that has a firm texture, as opposed to a soft, squishy texture.

I am actually told by many people that my videos are very helpful in learning English. Who would have guessed!

Kevin – that combo takes me back to childhood!

Jun, my neice adds parmesan cheese to the butter on the outside. It’s a wonderful addition!

Iolanthe said:

I’m a newbie cook (at age 46!). I found this site from the New York Times “Wellness” blog, which in turn had a pointer to Real Simple’s “best blogs” list. Phew! Glad I found you, though, because these videos are great. I made the grilled cheese sandwiches for my kids yesterday, and they came out perfectly the “trick” with using the kitchen knife to slice was a stroke of genius! Thank you.

Lisa said:

I use mayo instead of butter/margerine. It keeps the bread from getting that soggy texture in the middle, never burns, and it’s always perfectly crispy. My brother thought I was crazy until I made him one and he now says that “his sister makes the best grilled cheese ever”.

Kathy Maister said:

Welcome Lolanthe! I’m delight to hear how you discovered us! Be sure to let me know if you have any questions!

Lisa that is so cool! I can’t wait to give mayo a try!

Rone Macaroglu said:

To turn your sandwich into a “croque-monsieur“, after cooking both sides add extra cheese on top and brown under hot grill…

Kathy Maister said:

Thanks Rone! Do you use the same cheese as what you put inside the sandwich?

Hey Lisa, I tried your mayo trick and it works! It did taste a little different (in a good way) from a grilled cheese made with butter. The bread browned beautifully!

Rone Macaroglu said:

For a very light and tasty sandwich that you can eat even late at night and go to bed:

  1. After browning both sides, put some grated gruyère and very finely sliced mushrooms on top.
  2. Place the sandwich into a steam basket with paper towels in the bottom.
  3. Put the basket as high as possible inside a pressure cooker with half a glass of water inside,
  4. Lock and steam on high for two minutes…
  5. Empty the steam and open immediately…
  6. Serve…

Mary said:

I learned a simpler version of steaming grilled cheese from my daughter’s boyfriend. As the sandwich cooks, use your fingers to splash a little water in the frying pan and cover.

Rone Macaroglu said:

Great technique good to remember…
My problem is that when I eat something greasy and go to sleep, I have indigestion and reflux. I discovered that when I steam the food abundantly inside a pressure cooker, I digest it very easily even when I am asleep… Of course sometimes the bread gets wet, but I prefer eating wet bread rather than being ill in the middle of the night.
Bon appetit !

Kathy Maister said:

Mary and Rone, I have never actually heard of a steamed sandwich.

Rone, Sorry about the digestion issues but I must say your Pressure Cooker sandwich sounds most unusual!

Than again, Lolanthe’s mayo grilled cheese was really delicious!

I guess one should just keep an open mind to new suggestions! But, having said that, I do think I’ll stick to butter on hearty white bread with plastic wrapped cheese!

Paul said:

I do recommend you try this with some delicious mature chedder, it’s slightly tangier and very moreish!

Kathy Maister said:

Nothing better than a nice mature cheddar cheese!

I just made a Grilled Cheese with crusty bread and added some grated Parmesan cheese to the butter and then spread it on the outside of the bread. Oh me, oh my was that tasty!

Thooumak said:

tryed this right now
chessyyy …licious..

Melanie Mladenova said:

hi!I tried this recipe 1hr ago.It`s my first cooked meal and I really liked it!So thanks Cathy and keep on with the good recipes!:)

Kathy Maister said:

Congratulations Melanie! Good luck developing your cooking skills.

40 Illegal Baby Names That Have Been Banned Around the World

In the United States, almost anything goes when it come to baby names. While parents have to deal with the joy and drama of choosing a baby name, taking into account the most popular baby names along with whether or not the rest of the family will hate it, very few names are actually forbidden. Naming laws are actually set by the state, and some states have more requirements than others. There are some commonalities: In most states, you can't put a numeral in your name, for example, and there are often character limits to how long you can make a name. (In Minnesota, you're limited to "only" 150 characters.) But if you want to name your kid something that'll get them teased for the rest of their life, it's your American right.

In other countries, though, that isn't always the case, and there are much stricter naming laws. Some require parents to choose from a pre-approved list of names, or petition the government to add a name to the list. Others have laws protecting kids from the ridicule that would result from parents who choose terrible names for them. Here are more than 50 "illegal" names that have been banned or almost-banned &mdash see if you think the governing bodies were right to strike them down, or if you think they were overstepping.

Sharing Your Own Images

You! Anyone who is a registered and logged in user.

Please share images that will help other visitors. For example:

  • Images that highlight a article's features ("Here are the controls on this music player", "See the clasp for this necklace", "Look at the box this came in")
  • Images showing someone using a product ("Here I am wearing this scarf", "Install the ink cartridge here")
  • Images related to a topic ("My dog Skipper", "A great outfit", "Our family at Yellowstone", "How to glue a chair using a cabinet clamp")
  • Images that show how a product performs ("I took this picture with this camera", "This shirt shrunk in the wash", "The saw blade after 100 cuts")
  • Images that give a sense of the size of the product ("This refrigerator is actually 6' tall", "A cellphone the size of a credit card")

Do include captions for your images. While not required, they provide context for your images. Additionally, you can use the Image Notes feature to highlight one or more interesting areas in your image. Everyone will see your notes when they roll over your image.

What shouldn't I share?

Behave as if you were a guest at a friend's dinner party: please treat the Prime Publishing community with respect. Do not share:

  • Profane, obscene, or spiteful images, or any images with nudity
  • Images to which you do not own the intellectual property rights
  • Images featuring phone numbers, mail addresses, or URLs. You can watermark an image with copyright information.
  • Images featuring availability, price, or alternative ordering/shipping information
  • Images featuring external Web sites, contests, or other solicitations
  • Any personal information about children under 13
  • Images with automobile license plates that are prominent and easily read (pictures with license plates that have been fuzzed out or that otherwise cannot be read are acceptable).

The same guidelines apply to your captions and notes.

What image formats and sizes are supported?

We support JPEG, GIF and PNG images. Files must be no more than 1MB. Both the image height and the image width must be between 60 and 3500 pixels.

Instead of uploading an image, can I just enter a link to an image?

No, all images must be uploaded to Prime Publishing. This ensures your image is always available.

How long does it take to upload an image?

The time varies depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the image file. For a 400KB image, for example, you should expect 2 to 4 minutes over a 56KB modem and under 1 minute for DSL or cable modem.

Where will my image appear?

Generally your image will appear where you uploaded it: in the article image gallery.

Who owns the images I upload?

The rights owner of the image continues to own the image uploading your image to Prime Publishing does not transfer ownership.
