Post image for Hide Your Processed Cheese Slices

“Guilty pleasure” is not really a phrase in my vocabulary. Not for much of anything—I’m an equally unapologetic and vocal fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Taylor Swift, LL Bean river mocs, Thin Mints, Hart of Dixie, Katy Perry, Swingers, Triscuits, that pair of Chloe wooden wedge heels I’ve been kicking around since 2006, Cat News, and tiki drinks.

Yep, if I like it, I’ll happily eat it, watch it, listen to it, and tell you about it, with one notable exception: I secretly sneak processed cheese slices every chance I get.

Tapping In with a Pineapple-Chile Hefeweizen Cocktail

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 21, 2014

“And while beer on its own is just dandy, the particular flavor profile of the wheat ale family makes it a prime candidate for goosing up in a beer cocktail. The beer’s de facto pairing is a lemon or orange wedge to complement the spicy notes of clove, coriander, and nutmeg and the sweet honey undertones in the brew.”

Homemade Instant Coffee Mix: You Can Do It in Your Sleep

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 14, 2014

“No matter how you like to store and serve your emergency coffee—just creamer for those mornings when you’ve still got beans to grind in the house, a pre-made mix for super-desperate days, or single servings to take to motels, campgrounds, beach houses, or other places where neither fresh coffee nor milk can be found—I’ve got a solution for you.”

The Great Caper Caper! My Caper Obsession Yields An Addictively Briny Tuna Salad

Rebecca Peters-Goldenby Rebecca Peters-Golden April 10, 2014

“This recipe has completely invigorated tuna salad for me. While you can still stick it on a sandwich or salad, it’s actually flavorful enough that I have no problem eating it on its own, something I’d never do with plain old tuna + mayo.”

Lou Malnati’s: The Golden Mean of Chicago Deep Dish

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 7, 2014

“The layers of a Lou Malnati’s pie are calibrated. Nothing gets piled too high; each bite is satisfying and you can get through two slices without feeling like you’ll need to roll yourself out of the room. It’s still most definitely a knife-and-fork operation, at least for the first half of each slice, but you won’t need to unhinge your jaw to get through it.”
