Breakfast is all too often forgotten or skipped during the workweek, but on the weekend, it suddenly takes on a charged, almost obsessive appeal for people when it gets pushed to a few hours later in the day and gets renamed brunch. And that's because nobody wants to wake up for breakfast.
So we thought: Why not push back breakfast even farther? Why not make it for dinner? Perhaps then, people will start having breakfast every day of the week.
We're talking about a quick and easy meal here. Cooking dinner generally requires a bit more commitment than cooking breakfast, we think, so breakfast is a logical choice for anyone who may be reluctant to cook in the evening. Eggs, for example, in any shape or form, are one of the quickest things you can whip up in the kitchen. Fancy a basic cheese omelette? Ten minutes. (Five if you're practiced or a seasoned French chef.)
All of the recipes featured here can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic

If you watched Bradley Cooper's new Haagen-Dazs commercial and thought, "What the $#% just happened?" you're in good company. The internet is aflutter with questions about why People's Sexiest Man Alive is eating a tub of ice cream like a Cathy cartoon at a black tie event, why he fell for the old locked-in-a-room-with-only-a-spoon trick (huh?), and why on earth the Oscar-nominated actor thought making this commercial would be a good idea for his career. Some people have attempted to explain the not-so-subliminal imagery. Here are some theories—both from around the web and inside our heads—about what's really going on in the 30-second spot:
It's intentionally bad and we just don't get the joke.
It's actually really emotionally complex—like "Sophie's Choice" but with Bradley Cooper and ice cream.
It's about butts, and people are into that.
It was made 10 years ago and was only supposed to air internationally (or not).
It's the long-awaited sequel to the DiSaronno commercial (really, they areRead More »from Bradley Cooper's Haagen-Dazs Commercial: How to Explain its Awfulness

Thinkstock/iStockphotoLet's face it, we as human beings are pretty much always looking for an easy way out, especially when it comes to cooking, and buying frozen foods is one route we often take.Read More »from Dinner Ingredients that Are Worth Buying Frozen
There's no arguing it - frozen fruits and vegetables are convenient. They're pre-washed and often available pre-chopped, and they come in compact little boxes or bags that will sit in your freezer and wait patiently for you to remember that you even bought them, whenever that may be. On top of that, most frozen foods are cheaper than their fresh counterparts, and the savings only increase if you're the type that regularly throws out the two-day-old "fresh" broccoli you brought that began to brown before you could use it.
9 Surprising Ways to Add More Fiber to Your Diet
But even with convenience and cost covered, there's still a bit of guilt associated with buying frozen. Everyone's crazy about farmers' markets and CSA's these days, so we should always buy fresh, right?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you, or someone like you, is planning on doing some grilling this weekend. If you haven't broken out the tongs yet, this would obviously be the time to do so, particularly those of you who, like me, live in the gray and frigid northeast. I am figuring on cooking on Sunday for the first time since the weather broke. And on an occasion like that, nothing will do but a bone-on rib steak.
Of course, you don't need me to tell you to eat a rib steak. You were born with the urge to do that. But I am here to give you a few pointers. A great bone-on rib steak doesn't just grill itself. So, while I trust that Eat Like a Man's readers know the basics of how to cook outdoors - and if you don't, read this - I will skip over the fundamentals and jump right into the your executive summary-style bullet points.
- Not all rib steaks are created equal; pay less attention to whether the

"Marination Brown Session Ale can only be found at Marination locations in Seattle, most notably at Marination ma kai on gorgeous Alki Beach," says Schumacher, pictured here with a mug of the stuff. "It was brewed exclusively for Marination to complement their flavorful Hawaiian-Korean menu. The robust, but not over-the-top maltiness, a restrained hop profile and low alcohol content make this a perfect beer for spending long afternoons on the ma kai patio, soaking up the views of Elliot Bay and the Seattle skyline."
