Wikimedia/AvicedaBarring imminent starvation, it is basically never OK to eat a romantic partner's pets. That seems like the sort of relationship advice that wouldn't have to take up space in any dating guides, but one of Mike Tyson's former girlfriends didn't get the memo and thought it was a good idea to eat one of his pigeons.
The 20 Best Athlete-Owned Restaurants for 2013
According to The Huffington Post, the former boxer has a flock of much-adored pet pigeons that he raises and trains for races. But in an interview Thursday, he told CBS that although he is a vegan now, he had once tried and failed to eat a pigeon, because one of his girlfriends had killed and prepared one of his and told him to try it.
"I tried," Tyson said. "I was dating this young lady and she said, 'I don't know why you're flying those damn birds, you should be eating them.' … She happened to grab one and - and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn't do it."

Sandra Lee hosted the World's Largest Bake Sale at Grand Central Station in New York City on Wednesday, May 1st. Popular bakeries, celebrities, and chefs came out to donate baked goods to the bake sale, which benefitted the Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry Campaign, and the Food Bank for New York City. There were over 50,000 baked goods for sale at five dollars a piece in classic bake sale style. Some notable guests were Ty Pennington, Mario Batali, Wendy Williams, Buddy Valastro, and Dylan Lauren.

We sampled some delicious baked goods, and in doing so, came up with some amazing tips for you to try at your next bake sale.
It has to look good. Remember, kids eat with their eyes. When their parent gives them a dollar or two to buy something at the bake sale, they are going to go for the item that looks the best. So if you are making cupcakes, Dylan Lauren of Dylan's Candy Bar recommends trying a bright colored frosting, or adding candy to the top to make it pop.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pretzel BitesGet twisted with this delicious pretzel treat! I tend to steer clear of food that requires a lot of assembly or repetition. Also, I'm not a big pretzel fan. But when you combine salty little pretzels with my two all-time favorite foods - chocolate and peanut butter - I'm pretty much helpless. And these turned out to be very quick and easy to assemble (and even quicker and easier to eat).Read More »from Sweet, Salty & Simple! Make Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pretzel Treats

ritual. I sat on the soft carpet in my parents' bedroom at a low table, the television turned to "I Dream of Jeannie," and ate a peanut butter and honey sandwich cut into neat squares. I wasn't fussy about crusts. I just loved the sticky pairing of creamy peanut butter with syrupy golden sweetness drizzled from a honey bear in diagonals across the bread. Nothing else––save for maybe apples and peanut butter in a pinch––could have made for as sweet an afternoon, with Nickelodeon reruns stretching into the distance.My after-school snack was a sacred Read More »from Favorite Childhood Recipes: Shine Supper Club

Every week, Food52's Senior Editor, Kristen Miglore, unearths recipes that are nothing short of genius.
Today: 40-second scrambled eggs, and the perfect Mother's Day bonding experience.
You may think there are a finite number -- say, 6 -- ways to take your eggs. Breakfast is a multiple choice test, and diner waitresses and short order cooks aren't about to allow a write-in (not to mention busy moms and dads).
Sure, over time we've learned to improve upon the fundamentals, by frying eggs in olive oil or hard-cooking them judiciously rather than boiling their yolks out. But rarely has a new technique been rolled out, especially one that doesn't take 40 minutes. This one takes 40 seconds, give or take.
Adding to their mystique, they're also made without any fat at all, and there's no crusty panRead More »from 40-Second Poached Scrambled Eggs
Banana bread is a great solution for using overripe bananas. To lighten up your favorite recipe, use all whole-grain flour or whole-grain flour mixed with white all-purpose flour, and rely as much as you can on the natural sweetness of the bananas to cut the total amount of granulated sugar called for in the recipe. If you roughly mash or chop your bananas, there are big chunks of fruit to bite into. Consider a handful of toasted chopped walnuts or a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg and a handful of dark chocolate chips for a flavor boost.
Want to lighten up your favorite banana bread recipe? Here are 4 of our best tricks you can use to make your banana bread recipe healthier and delicious, and a recipe for EatingWell's healthy Banana-Blueberry Buttermilk Bread.
