Pizza Hut's recent "crazy" pie additions and inventions overseas have been making food headlines, and now America has one to call their own. Since it's arrival on the scene last week, dedicated pizza-lovers from Serious Eats and NPR's The Salt have taken it upon themselves to taste test the new "Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza" for the rest of us.
According to a report released by the American Chemical Society earlier this week, scientists have detected small traces of arsenic in some of our favorite filtered beverages (beer and wine, specifically). But don't dump your suds just yet! Small levels of the organic compound can occur naturally as a byproduct of a centuries-old filtering process, and may not even be cause for alarm. NPR's The Salt examines the facts.
You may have noticed the increasing trend of canning suds in the world of craft beer. Unlike bottles, the cans provide an airtight container, keeping the beer fresher longer. However, some argue the small mouth of a can doesn't allow for proper aeration while drinking. That is, until the "topless" can came about, pioneered by Sly Fox Brewing Co.
The company's head brewer Brian O'Reilly recently praised the new lid on Today.com. "This technology allows the full flavor and aroma of the beer to hit the drinker's senses," he said.

Love brainy-rind cheeses? Well perfect, as they're currently in season. Madame Fromage particularly adores Clochette, a bell-shaped Frenchie with several layers of lucious paste. Intruiged? She's also got some serving suggestions.
Clochette is especially tasty with lemon marmalade on toast. Or, try it with thin slices of green apples and a light, clear honey -- a crack of black pepper adds spark.

Fire up the grill... it''s outdoor cooking season! These delicious fig appetizers are easier than they appear, and oh-so-fancy on their built-in cedar plank serving tray. Impress friends at your next backyard barbeque or savor them solo for a decadent treat.
Sweet figs and salty meat is an automatic win, so there's not much more to say about that, but some little additions in this recipe make these go beyond the usual bacon-wrapped figs. First, the figs are dipped in Grand Marnier before being grilled. Then they get a topping of goat cheese and a drizzle of honey.
Not only is is National Grilled Cheese Month, this week also celebrates another melty cheese incarnation: fondue. And now you can get some for free if you know where to look.
Thursday is the cheesiest day of the year—National Cheese Fondue Day—and The Melting Pot restaurant, which has a location in Downtown Bethlehem, is celebrating this week with a “Buy Cheese, Get Cheese” offer. That means that restaurant guests who order a pot of cheese fondue can get a second pot free.
For a grilled cheese experience that walks the line between sweet and savory, try this elegant concoction with nutty Manchego cheese, salty prosciutto, and a bit of fig jam. It's like taking all the best components of an antipasto plate and enjoying them in sandwich form!
I usually whip up a grilled cheese sandwich when I want something super fast to eat that will whole heartedly satisfy my soul. This recipe here happens to be the one my man most enjoys. Heck, who am I kidding, I love it too!
It's the ultimate question at the end of a great meal: dessert or cocktail? You can have it all with this easy, boozy recipe that mimics a classic ice cream parlor favorite. Chances are, you already have all the necessary ingredients on hand, and the recipe just begs for variations. Bourbon pecan? Port with cherries? Go crazy!
This week I recreate an old favorite ice cream flavor, Rum Raisin, by simply topping some slightly softened ice cream with a drizzle of spiced rum and a sprinkling of mixed raisins for an insanely good boozy treat. It's the perfect adult indulgence in minutes.
Grilled Cheese Month is the perfect opportunity to go overboard with cheese sandwich creativity, and this recipe does just that.
Is it a grilled cheese, a patty melt, or a bacon cheeseburger? Does it really matter? With crispy bacon bits, seasoned beef, and double cheese, it can call itself whatever it wants, as long as it's on my griddle immediately. The idea here is to include all of the flavors of a mouthwatering bacon double cheese burger in grilled cheese form. I have to say that these are one of my new favourite grilled cheese sandwiches and they taste just like a bacon double cheese burger, only better!
The most thought-provoking question of the day: What's the best cheese to top on pizza?
