'MasterChef': Wednesday, Bloody Macaroons

Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 8.03.51 PM

Thank God for HD, right? (I don’t care what any of the judges say. These still look amazing.)

It’s all about the final Pressure Test on MasterChef. Last week’s lemon meringue pie did Bimi in, and this week two home chefs had to enter a sweat-streaked macaroon WAR ZONE to fight for their places in summer’s hottest competition of who can stir up the most sh*t cook random stuff the best. Who would ultimately fall apart easier than his own confection? READ FULL STORY

'The Next Food Network Star' gets 'Chopped'

On tonight’s Next Food Network Star, the eight finalists got a visit from new Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli (pictured), who was filling in for Giada. I loved how this straight-shooting force of nature didn’t even pretend to indulge Danushka’s bad attitude. Spoilers (in the form of apple juice and “fruit leather”-infused hot sauce, if you please) ahead…. READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef' season 4: What are you missing?

I didn’t mean for this to happen, but after salivating (with a full stomach, gross) over contestant Jonny’s “Lobster Crackerjack” within the first few minutes, I found myself watching two full hours of MasterChef. The auditions are over and the finalists have been revealed. What else have you been missing? Spoiler ahead… READ FULL STORY

Watch Will Ferrell's new Old Milwaukee Super Bowl XLVII commercial -- VIDEO

As is his yearly tradition, Will Ferrell filmed a Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee beer that aired only in select markets. This year’s extra-tasty-kissy spot rivals GoDaddy’s Bar Refaeli-smooching-a-nerd ad for sure — instead of zeroing in too heavily on a ’70s-esque, tank-topped Ferrell macking on a stranger on a bus, the camera graciously pans out to highlight some of America’s finest canned brew.  Watch it below.

Super Bowl 2013: Best and Worst Commercials

calvin_klein_doritos

My overwhelming thought following tonight’s rippling terrain of pricey Super Bowl commercials was that Doritos missed a great cross-promotional opportunity by not joining forces with Calvin Klein. There’s always next year. Below, zip through a bunch of 2013’s most memorable — best AND worst! — Super Bowl ads. READ FULL STORY

New scoop! '30 Rock' has its own Ben & Jerry's flavor

ben-jerrys

Ben & Jerry’s new 30 Rock flavor has arrived. Correction: Ben & Jerry’s new Liz Lemon flavor has arrived.

Ben & Jerry’s has revealed that its 30 Rock-themed flavor is actually greek frozen yogurt — Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt to be exact. B&J describes its new creation as a “lemony-blueberry-y flavor.” Although we are sure that Liz would appreciate the use of her name, we’re willing to bet she would’ve preferred something with a little bit more of a “night cheese” flavor.

The flavor will be available for your enjoyment this spring.

Winter lager is coming: HBO to release 'Game of Thrones'-themed beer

Fresh out of mead? No matter — come March, you’ll have a whole new libation to sip while playing your favorite Drinking Game of Thrones.

HBO announced today that it’s partnering with New York’s Brewery Ommegang to create a series of beers “that directly tie into themes, characters and nuances…of the medieval-like fantasy realm of Westeros and surrounding kingdoms,” according to a press release. Iron Throne Blonde Ale, the first beer in the series — beeries? —  should be on shelves in time for Game of Thrones‘s third season premiere on March 31. 750ml bottles will sell for the suggested retail price of one gold dragon $8.50, a pittance for any Lannister worth his salt.

This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans of either George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire books or the HBO series it inspired.  READ FULL STORY

'Epic Meal Time' spinoff 'Epic Chef' features holiday scrooges -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Lovers of bacon, Jack Daniel’s, and overall gluttony, rejoice! Epic Chef, the online spinoff series of the YouTube cooking show Epic Meal Time that pits professional chefs against one another, debuted today.

Because today’s challenge featured portion-challenged, double deep-fried, beer-battered breakfast items, it’s safe to expect a meal of even more epic proportions in the upcoming holiday special. In this exclusive clip, chef Shawn Dobbin and Gavin Mills are harassed by host Harley Morenstein and guest judges Kevin Pereira and Charles Phoenix for not prepping the food appropriately and for reading instructions off ingredient boxes. What happened to their holiday cheer?

And you thought Anthony Bourdain was uninhibited and Paula Deen was butter-happy.

Amanda Seyfried admits she's drunk on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

How does Amanda Seyfried keep herself from feeling misérable while doing press? One word: booze.

During an appearance on the Late Show last night, the Les Mis star explained that while filming the musical, she and her castmates had to live “like monks” in order to protect their voices. That meant constant water guzzling, early bedtimes, and most importantly, no drinking. Now, though, all bets are off: “I’m pretty drunk,” she told David Letterman matter-of-factly when he asked if she’d had a tipple before coming on the show.

Wait, seriously? Yes — as their chat continued, it seemed pretty apparent that Seyfried was, in fact, pretty tipsy. When you’re that tiny and down three glasses of whiskey, the alcohol’s effects have to be fairly strong.
