Wrapped and ready to blow your mindOf all the culinary creations in the world, few single items encompass an entire meal quite like the burrito: meat, beans, rice, salsa, maybe some vegetables, all wrapped up in that versatile food vessel - the tortilla. In the best burritos, each ingredient stands out in every bite while at the same time harmonizing inside its tortilla casing. It may well be the perfect food for any meal (see: breakfast burritos), though it's just as satisfying while capping off a night on the town with one last hurrah of gluttony. Traditional, Americanized, or fused with any number of ethnic cuisines, the burrito has become as much a part of American food culture as the hamburger; enjoyed coast to coast, by all walks of life. Regale yourself with a homemade tortilla from Changos Taqueria, a "Cheezy Beef" from Habanero's or go all out with beef tongue from La Pasadita.

These dishes redefine the meaning of brunchBrunch is one of America's guiltiest pleasures. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends, people spend their time piling into restaurants and waiting in line to indulge in over-the-top cocktails and overly filling entrées. With an abundance of booze and a variety of eclectic dishes, brunch can be the staple that holds our Sunday mornings together or the boozy party that makes our Saturdays worth it.Read More »from America's 10 Most Outrageous Brunch Dishes
Considering the fact that brunch is a largely American fad, it may come as a surprise to learn that the concept was actually invented in England. British writer Guy Beringer thought of the idea in 1895 when he propositioned it in his essay "Brunch: A Plea." Tired of the post-church dinners filled with heavy meats and filling pies, Beringer believed that brunch, a breakfast-inspired meal between breakfast and lunch, seemed like the best alternative. He gave no specific menu requirements, except that brunch should be "cheerful, sociable, and inciting" with "everything good, plenty of it, variety,

Even the priciest chains offer deep discountsAhh, happy hour. That brief, shining window, generally during weekday afternoons, when bars roll back drink prices in an effort to lure in those who are able to take advantage of the free time and low prices. But while bars are still great sources of happy hours, plenty of restaurants are offering happy hours, too. And not just on drinks; they're knocking back prices on food as well. In fact, some of the country's best-known, and most expensive, chain restaurants offer little-known menus featuring incredibly inexpensive food and drink specials. You just need to know where to go and when to go. And that's what we're here for.Read More »from Bang for Your Buck: The Best Happy Hours Nationwide

Happy hour itself is nothing new, obviously.

The first milkshake was reportedly made by a Walgreens employee, Ivar "Pop" Coulson. He updated the pharmacy's "chocolate malt beverage" by adding a scoop of ice cream, and the lives of ice cream lovers, sweet tooths, and soda fountains were forever changed. Heck, the blender was invented in 1922 by Stephen Poplawski just to mix up milkshakes - who knew?

Now, milkshakes are getting the culinary treatment just like your cocktails, lemonades, and juices.

Major fast-food chains have global reach, and in most cases they tailor their menus to incorporate local tastes and cultures. In Japan, for example, Burger King sells a Premium Black Kuro Burger with squid ink-flavored ketchup, and in India, where a large percentage of the population doesn't eat beef, McDonald's sells the Maharaja Mac, which replaces the beef patties with chicken.Read More »from The 5 Craziest McDonald’s Pies

20 Tips for How to Be a Better Cook
A lot of people don't know the term "mother sauces," but it refers to the five basic and essential sauces that all other sauces stem from. They're the building blocks of what every young chef is taught during their training, because if you know the mother sauces, you know the foundations of pretty much any other sauce out there (the technical term for those other sauces are "small sauces").
