Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Third Edition)

4th-Dessert-Bar.3

Though now is the winter of my discontent as an American citizen, I understand that I must try to keep the patriotic fervor alive as far as the 4th of July is concerned. Celebrating America’s birthday on the 4th of July is supposed to be a festive and uproarious occasion. But since the 2016 Election, the American spirit we associate with Independence Day isn’t with me at the moment. The fact so many people I knew and cared about voted for such an unrespectable man who’s now in the White House was a profound sense of betrayal for me. It has only gotten worse since the House passed the morally indefensible American Healthcare Act and the Senate is trying to pass their healthcare plan in the most undemocratic way possible. Not to mention, the fact so many people seem to stand by and make excuses for Donald Trump no matter what he does, what longstanding rules he breaks, who he hurts, or how his presidency is becoming an utter disaster. For the first time in my life, I feel ashamed for my country as if Trump’s presidential candidacy has led millions of people to abandon our most cherished American values out racism and their own selfish reasons. But anyway, I must continue with my holiday posts though any pride or faith I have in my country is almost shattered. Well, here’s another assortment of 4th of July treats so you can celebrate your barbecue. Enjoy.

  1. This 4th of July, grace your patriotic dessert table with this sparkling cake.

It’s a cake with sparkler candles and red and blue sprinkles. Make sure the sparklers go out before serving.

2. There’s a lot of explosive energy with these cupcakes.

And since it’s the 4th of July, they have red, white, and blue icing. What can be more patriotic than that?

3. Wake up this 4th of July to an American flag waffle.

Contains strawberries, blueberries, and banana. But you may used whipped cream if you want.

4. A red, white, and blue rose iced cake is a patriotic treat.

Well, you have to admire the icing on this one. Cause I’m sure nobody but a cake decorator can pull this off.

5. Let Old Glory wave with these red, white, and blue cupcakes.

Sure it may not resemble the American flag exactly. But the stars and stripes is a hard one to replicate in food.

6. For your dessert platter, may I suggest these Rice Krispie balls?

Each one is iced with red, white, and blue sprinkles. It’s a simple but patriotic treat.

7. Nothing makes a 4th of July barbecue more American than this 7 layer dip.

Now that’s a work of artisanship here. Not sure if I’d want to dip a nacho in this. Might desecrate a sacred image. Though Trump already has.

8. Or you can go with a pepperoni, cheese, and nacho snack platter.

Though the nachos on this one are blue which is weird. Seriously, why do these things exist?

9. Feast your eyes on these star-spangled cupcakes.

This one has striped and star cupcakes. Sure they’re professionally made. But they’re perfect for an Independence Day barbecue.

10. There’s something crackling about this 4th of July cake.

Yes, it looks like a giant cupcake with a firecracker on it. But it’s one of a kind like America.

11. As we all know, it’s whether you bleed red, white, and blue on the inside that counts.

As you can see, you’ll find the colors in this cupcake. May not see it on the outside at first though.

12. No proud patriotic partier can ever resist these red, white, and blue cupcakes.

This one has red, white, and blue filling and star sprinkles. Hope this can satisfy your star-spangled urges.

13. For a fruity treat, may I suggest red, white, and blue jello?

Well, it looks similar to a previous one I showed a couple years back. But this one has more whipped cream and less cherries.

14. For a simple treat, you might want to go with some patriotic pretzel sticks.

Requires pretzel sticks, icing and sprinkles. But make sure the sprinkles are red, white, and blue.

15. Celebrate the 4th of July with some patriotic pudding pops.

Well, they’re quite small compared to popsicles. But at least they make a cool summer treat.

16. Nothing makes a 4th of July party like strawberry and blueberry trifle.

Because, you know red, white, and blue. Though they didn’t include the whipped cream.

17. For a more sweet disposition, I suppose an M&M flag cake can suit your fancy.

Don’t worry, they do have 4th of July M&Ms for this. Yet, once you bake the cake, decorating should be a breeze.

18. Ice cream cookies are always a tasty treat.

Yes, they’re scoop cookies on ice cream cones with red, white, and blue sprinkles. Say what you want, but at least they won’t melt in your hands.

19. Grace your dessert platter this 4th of July with this American flag peanut butter dip dish.

I know it’s for dessert since it’s covered with sprinkles. You don’t use sprinkles in appetizer platters.

20. For a more patriotic cake, may I recommend iced and sprinkled pretzel sticks?

Helps if you have some red, white, and blue sparkler decorations on top. Gives you a more festive atmosphere doesn’t it?

21. Firework cookies are always an explosive delight.

Sure these are made by a professional. But they’d look good on any American flag paper plate.

22. There is no more American treat than some star spangled brownies.

Well, it’s brownies configured into an American flag. But each one has a red, white, or blue star. Such a statement in chocolaty patriotic goodness.

23. No patriot party is complete without a cake to honor the US of A.

Helps that’s it’s 2 tiered and in red, white, and blue. Love the patterns on it.

24. Now this is a cake reeking of American sentiment.

However, we should say that Trump voters seem to have a funny sense of honor. After all, they elected a man who has absolutely none.

25. A loaf of cake should have layers of raspberries and blueberries.

Well, there’s icing in between along with the berries to get that red, white, and blue. I’m sure it’ll be a hit at some fancy patriotic celebration.

26. Top your 4th of July celebration with this Rice Krispie Uncle Sam hat.

Because an Uncle Sam head is far too creepy. Though it doesn’t exactly resemble his outlandish star-spangled hat. But it’ll do.

27. Red, white, and blue meringue cookies always spin for your pleasure.

Not exactly sure what meringue is. But I love the colors on these that I’ll include them in this post.

28. There’s plenty of this star spangled fruit pizza for everyone.

Toppings mostly consist of strawberries, icing, and blueberries. So decorating it shouldn’t be a problem.

29. Or perhaps a star pie may suit you.

Like the previous one, this also consist of strawberries and blueberries. Though something else poses as the filling.

30. This star spangled cake is one showing patriotic love.

This is for a wedding. But I like the star union being draped on it. A very American cake.

31. Nothing makes a quality patriotic snack like red, white, and blue pretzel bites.

You just need pretzels, icing, and 4th of July M&Ms. And you’re all set. Easy.

32. For a more festive and explosive flair, try these Rice Krispie firecrackers for size.

These consist of Rice Krispies, chocolate, licorice, and sprinkles. The rest is just decoration.

33. If you want to please, go with a flag candy bar treat.

Each one is decorated with M&Ms like some of the others on this post. Yet, all these look delicious.

34. For added fluff, try some red, white, and blue marshmallow sticks.

Yes, this is another sugary snack. But Pinterest often shows desserts for holidays anyway.

35. This patriotic cookie cake is great for fireworks celebrations.

Though this is certainly covered in candy. And why do they have white chocolate Kit Kat bars on there? That’s insane.

36. There’s nothing more patriotic at a 4th of July than this American flag pizza.

Yes, they used leafy greens for the blue. But there’s not a lot of blue food around. Still, looks tasty.

37. These red velvet cupcakes make a quality patriotic dessert.

Helps if they have white icing and blueberries on top. Still, these are pretty.

38. Celebrate your 4th of July with these red, white and blue cheesecakes.

Each layer on this is red and white with white icing and blueberries on top. Will sure make your party a hit.

39. For a more sophisticated treat, may I suggest some American flag cheesecake squares?

Each has cherry sauce and blueberries on top. Though I’m not a cheesecake fan, I assure your guests may enjoy these.

40. Hope you can find a slice of Old Glory within this cake.

I showed a similar one years ago. But this one seems to take less layers and stars.

41. You can’t have anything more star spangled at your 4th of July party like these stained glass stars.

Yes, they’re cookies with jello in the center. Not sure how it works. But they look quite tasty.

42. Feast your eyes on this star spangled patriotic pie.

Yes, it’s another American flag pie. But this one is in a neater fashion than a previous one I showed.

43. It’s not a patriotic fruit salad without stars and flags.

Well, if you can’t eke out an American flag on a watermelon, stars will do. The American flags aren’t a bad touch either.

44. Uncle Sam sends his love to the US of A.

Well, that’s a nice cookie image. But you’ll bet it’ll be eaten somehow. Like the flag though.

45. If you want a more healthy option, you might want to go with American flag fruit kabobs.

Includes strawberries, banana slices, and blueberries. Seems like you can do a lot with these 3 fruits.

46. If you like roll cakes, I suppose this red, white, and blue one will suit your fancy.

Sure it may not look remarkable on the outside. But the inside is amazing.

47. With this cake, you can show your love for the US of A.

Yes, it’s a cake of the United States. Yet, you have to love the red icing and blueberries on it.

48. These star-spangled cookies have a flowery disposition.

If you look closely at the stars, you’ll see that the tiny stars are flowers. They may be professionally made but I’ll take them.

49. Fruit tacos can always wake you up for the 4th of July.

Each consists of strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream wrapped in a pancake. A great combination for a patriotic morning.

50. Wake up this 4th of July morning with some fruity fireworks.

This one also has strawberries and blueberries. Though to be fair, they’re less likely to kill you than the ones at IHOP.

51. Nobody could resist some American flag fruit kabobs with raspberries and marshmallows.

Though the fruit kabobs like these I showed last year were also drizzled. These are not.

52. Well, this American flag cake is certainly cherry.

Never featured an American flag cake with cherries on it before. Maybe because cherries need to get the pits out of them.

53. Hold a toast to America’s birthday with these Rice Krispie shot cups.

I guess these cups are made for adults. Don’t ask me where this Pinterest idea came from. Then again, it might depend on whether the drink has any alcohol.

54. If you think fruit kabobs should have an even distribution of red, white, and blue, these will do nice for you.

Includes strawberries, banana slices, and blueberries. And you can pick up each one on a stick.

55. For fun in the sun, these 4th of July flip flop nutter butter cookies are a tasty treat.

Now that’s an ingenious idea. Love how they each have a pair. So creative.

56. These small fruit kabobs will nicely on a watermelon shell.

Kabobs consist of strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry. And there are 2 American flags to give the platter a patriotic look.

57. This star spangled cookie pizza goes nicely on any 4th of July dessert platter.

Decorated with strawberry stripes and a blackberry union. Though I’m more impressed by the use of blackberries since you often don’t see them on such treats.

58. You’ll always have an explosive night with these firework cookies.

Helps if each one of them has red, white, and blue. Love them.

59. How about a fruit pizza of the Star-Spangled Banner?

Contains raspberries and blueberries on it. But it seems rather easy to decorate once it’s covered in icing.

60. There’s no patriotic platter like an American flag of pretzels.

Each one is dipped in some red, white, or blue chocolate. But only the blue ones have sprinkles.

61. Nothing emphasizes America like a dipped Oreo American flag.

Some of these were dipped in red and white chocolate. Some were dipped in blue chocolate and have stars on them.

62. This star-spangled cake is perfect for any 4th of July barbecue.

It’s blue with stars on the top. And it has red and white stripes on the sides. Makes a great centerpiece on a dessert platter.

63. A patriotic cake should always have a bald eagle on top.

This one was for a 90th birthday. Comes in 3 tiers with stripes on the bottom, stars in the middle, and an eagle on top.

64. You’d almost think these firework cupcakes would explode in your mouth.

I know these are fireworks but they kind of resemble bombs. Though at least they’re red and blue.

65. You can make a 4th of July cake look stunning with candy canes.

Well, candy canes do have red and white stripes. But where are you ever going to find them this time of year?

66. If you like chocolate chip cookies, may I suggest these stars?

Also, has some strawberries and blueberries on top of white icing. From a Nestle Toll House recipe.

67. Nothing entices 4th of July partygoers like shiny red, white, and blue candy apples.

Or should I say red, white, and silver? Then again, these seem professionally made.

68. As we all know red and blue orange slices bring all the fun.

However, there’s a chance they might contain alcohol. So you might want to keep out of reach of those under 21. Or at least until you consult the host.

69. For a more patriotic cheesecake, you might want to add some food coloring.

Well, red and blue coloring anyway. Though this looks absolutely stunning.

70. For a healthy 4th of July, perhaps a Captain America fruit platter may suit you.

Yes, he may not be your favorite Avenger. But he’s a patriotic superhero. So his emblematic shield on a fruit platter goes on this post.

71. Enjoy watching fireworks while chomping down on some patriotic popcorn.

Has some blue and red in it to match the bowl. Not sure how that works out.

72. There’s something fishy about these red, white, and blue goldfish pretzel bites.

Seems like red, white, and blue goldfish crackers exist. Yet, these are quite easy to make as you see.

73. These 4th of July cookies have been well put together.

Well, these are cookies of the USA. Includes some wood panel cookies as well.

74. Check out these star-spangled Oreos on a stick.

Each one is dipped in red and blue chocolate with white stars on them. Still, they must be delicious.

75. If you like frozen treats, you might want some of these patriotic ice cream sandwiches.

Each one has some strawberry and vanilla ice cream between graham crackers as well as blue icing and sprinkles. Great for any hot day.

76. There is nothing more delectable for the 4th of July than some cheesecake stars.

And they’re in red, white, and blue layers, too. Also like the whipped cream and sprinkles.

77. Hope this American flag waffle is brought to your patriotic breakfast.

Well, this is a circular waffle, anyway. But it contains strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream.

78. Celebrate America’s birthday with these American flag cake pops.

All of them are also covered in white sprinkles. At any rate, enjoy.

79. You can never go wrong with a patriotic fruit platter like this.

This one is mostly made from watermelon. But it sure rings a patriotic show.

80. For  a real American flag pie, perhaps rectangular is best.

The stripe filling is cherry and the stars one is blueberry. But it will certainly serve everyone.

The Picnic World of Pies

pie1

As we all know, summer is the season for picnics and special occasions whether it be graduations, weddings, family reunions, 4th of July, county fairs, local festivals, or what have you. And it goes without saying that many of these occasions feature a table of dessert of some sort like pie. Before he passed away in January, my grandfather was well-known for baking his pies with apple and cherry being his specialty. Still, though usually circular with pastry crust, pies can come in all different flavors from the traditional apple, cherry, and blueberry to even Millie’s chocolate shit pie from The Help. And let’s not get into what’s in Mrs. Lovett’s famous meat pies in Sweeny Todd. Though keep in mind that not all pies are used for dessert either since we have savory pies like chicken pot pie, meat pasties, and others. Then there’s the practice of pie throwing in people’s faces as slapstick comedy which usually involves one with cream. But there’s a recent trend of pieing becoming an act of political protest, though I’d reconsider throwing a cream pie in a politico’s face which can land you in a lot of trouble. Anyway, there are plenty of people who make pies with their own personal touch. So for your reading pleasure I bring you an oven load of unique pies to enjoy.

  1. Hope you find it in your heart to eat this pie.

This one has a crust of hearts, weavings, and flowers. Bet it took a long time to make it.

2. Perhaps it might be best if you enjoy your dessert.

So this isn’t the kind of pie you’d bring at a family reunion. Though I kind of find it funny.

3. Bet you’ve never seen an octopus pie before.

Don’t worry, I don’t think it has actual octopus in it. It’s just the crust. But yes, there are people who do eat octopus.

4. How about a pie with flowers and leaves?

Seems like some people take more time on the crust than others. Not exactly sure what this pie is.

5. For the holidays, try this Christmas crust.

Includes snowmen, snowflakes, Christmas trees, reindeer, and a couple of braids. And yes, it’s probably made by either a professional or someone with too much time on their hands.

6. I suppose this is a grape pie.

Well, it has grapes on the crust. Though the file name has Italian apple tart which is confusing.

7. Now I don’t have the slightest idea how to solve that problem.

It’s not that I’m bad at math. It’s just that I’m not good at solving complex math problems like this.

8. Floral designs always go well on the right crust.

Seems like floral motifs are a common crust motif. But such artistry would take forever to produce for most pies made in the kitchen.

9. I’m sure a stargazy pie may be worth your appetite.

It’s a pie from Cornwall in England. Though to me, the fish heads make the whole thing unappetizing to me.

10. For seaside picnics, a lobster pie will do.

Though it’s more or less a pie with a lobster on it. And no, it doesn’t have lobster in it. Though lobster pies do exist.

11. For a prettier apple pie, may I suggest your apples be roses?

Sure the apple roses are golden brown. But baked apples normally are that color. Got to like the leafed crust, too.

12. Fans of Game of Thrones might adore this Stark pumpkin pie.

Yes, Game of Thrones pies exist. I am not making this up. Though you wouldn’t want to bring this to a wedding.

13. If you want to find the circumference of this pie, this one has all you need.

Yes, it’s a pie with pi on it. Bet it’s used for Pi Day which is March 14 since the first 3 digits are 3.14.

14. A pie in the fall should have a tree with autumn leaves.

Bet this is an apple one given the crust. Though I’ve never seen leaves turn pink during the fall.

15. Speaking of tree pies, I hope this can suit your fancy.

Well, this one is a more elaborate design. Includes leaves on the edge as well as crusted fruit.

16. If you like roses, then you might like a bouquet of them in pastry dough.

Well, considering the detail, pastry roses must take long to make. But they’re nevertheless pretty.

17. For winter days, treat yourself to a nice, warm snowflake pie.

Though I have to admit, the crust was probably made with a snowflake mold. Or by a professional. Not sure which.

18. I suppose this is a chicken pot pie of some sort.

Well, it seems to be a chick in a pie. How else could I tell? Still, it’s kind of sick if you think about it too hard.

19. Help yourself to a slice of some flowery blueberry.

Guess flowers are a common crust motif. Still, it’s not bad to look at.

20. Leaves and berries make a fine pumpkin pie crust.

Bet this is for Thanksgiving since it has autumn motifs on it. Not sure what I think about the berries.

21. Make sure you use all the dough for a flowery crust.

After all, a floral crust is always sweet, especially in the spring and summer. Love the flower holes.

22. Perhaps you prefer your pie braided.

Guess this is another fall pie. Though the braids seem to give it a rustic touch.

23. Speaking of braids, this one comes with waves.

Yes, I understand braids are easy in dough. But this one makes it seem like an art form.

24. This strawberry rhubarb pie can use some flowers and leaves.

Well, you can’t hate the floral touches on this. But I’m sure you wouldn’t be making some of these pies in the kitchen.

25. This strawberry pie was made with nothing but love.

Because it has hearts all over it as you see. Then again, it was probably made for Valentine’s Day.

26. This crust is giving me butterflies.

Hey, it’s not always about hearts, flowers, and leaves, you know. But I kind of wish the butterflies had more color to them.

27. How about a knitted crust to keep your filling nice and warm?

Yes, this is a knitted crust, all right. How someone managed to achieve this, I’ll never know.

28. Seems like this ship is headed toward dangerous waters.

Hmm.. a pirate ship and a sea monster pie. Very interesting. Not something I’d think of serving at a family reunion.

29. This apple pie’s flowery crust is full of vivid color.

Hey, not all floral pies can have plain dough on them. Love the colors. So pretty.

30. For a dark night, you can’t get better than a pie like this.

Because we all know that Alfred has to make Bruce his special pie after a night beating the crap out of the Joker. Wonder what his recipe is.

31. Care for a Venn piagram?

Nor sure where I can get a pan like that. But at least this can serve more people than a regular pie. Just ask whether someone wants cherry or blueberry.

32. Hope you enjoy this new Apple iPie.

It’s a new concept in apple pie technology. With its rounded square crust, it’s a great marvel of the 21st century.

33. With this pie, you might want to have some peace.

As you can see it’s a peace sign with flowers and doves. And in Colorado, it might have a secret ingredient that gives you the munchies.

34. Care for a pie with an ivy crust?

It’s a strawberry one. But it sure shows more filling than some of the others.

35. I suppose a blackberry pie should come with a tree.

Then again, it might be vine with flowers. Apparently, this baker had too much time on their hands.

36. Making a crust like this should be easy as pie.

However, I’d beg to differ. But it’s suppose to kind of imply a pun, no less.

37. Perhaps you might have an easy time weaving your crust to keep in the filling.

Well, it certainly looks easier than some of the others. But sometimes weaving can be a pain in the ass.

38. If you can’t say something nice, say it with pie.

Though I wouldn’t go with a cherry filling if I made a pie like that. Might want go by Millie’s recipe.

39. An autumn pie should have leaves of many colors.

Yet, here each one of them is covered in sugar. Not sure if it improves the taste.

40. Apparently, a pie can also have Pac Man fever.

Yes, this is a Pac-Man pie. Sure it’s not completely round. But that’s kind of the point.

41. Something tells me that this is a rectangular apple pie.

Mostly because of what it says on the crust. That’s kind of a dead giveaway.

42. With a crust like this, this pie smells as fresh as a daisy.

Well, it has a daisy crust, anyway. Then again, there are a lot of flowers look like that.

43. For a tree crust, there has to be a lot of leaves.

Well, you’d probably have never seen a pie like this. Love the leaves on the branches.

44. Would you like your pie to be a little bit on the Dark Side?

Though judging from this one, it’s only a matter of time when it’s fully operational. Also, the heart doesn’t make this cherry pie really clashes with the Dark Side vibe.

45. If you’re into Lovecraftian delights, may I suggest a Cthulhu pie?

That way, I’m sure your fellow cultists will be impressed during your summer picnic. Enjoy.

46. It’s not Thanksgiving unless you have a cornucopia on a pumpkin pie.

Well, that’s certainly the ultimate Thanksgiving pie. Hate to slice it up and destroy it.

47. Speaking of pumpkin pies, this one might as well feed a whole town.

Yes, that’s a big pie which most likely required a massive oven. Not sure how they’ll cut that up.

48. You’d swear this Hellboy pie came from the fiery depths.

Too bad Hellboy wasn’t from either DC or Marvel. Or I would’ve featured him in related post last year.

49. This bank robber pie is surely worth a steal.

Actually I’m not sure what that’s supposed to be. In fact, it kind of reminds me of Walter White. But he doesn’t wear that hat.

50. Don’t forget to add sails to this pierate ship.

Still, the sails are only decoration. But I’m sure this will get you all hands on deck.

51. When in doubt, try a bacon crust.

Sure it might be good for your tastebuds. But it’s also bad for arteries.

52. When it’s pizza night at the Vatican, His Holiness goes for a different kind of pie.

By the way, this was from a New York pizzeria when Pope Francis came to the US in 2015. And I say, the guy did a great job.

53. Hope you can’t eat this Millennium Falcon pie in less than 12 parsecs.

Make sure you can Chewie your food. Almost resembles an exact replica of the ship.

54. These Hello Kitty hand pies are great for the road.

Well, it’s said everything is smaller in Japan. But these are adorable.

55. Now you’d almost want to hang this pie design on a wall.

This is a mutton pie design. Nevertheless, is a true work of art.

56. If you want a fiery impression, try a pie depicting a fire breathing dragon.

Even has some cheese and bacon on top. Yes, pies can look pretty awesome.

57. For a more beach picnic, this sea monster on ship pie is perfect.

Though you only see the sea monster’s tentacles. Then again, living on a wooden ship isn’t as glamorous as they make it out to be in the movies.

58. I’m sure you’ll be hooting for a pie like this.

Has a couple of owls on a perch. One is green and one is purple. So cute.

59. If you like Super Mario Brothers, you’ll like this mushroom pie.

Well, it’s not exactly Mario and Luigi. But I’m sure geeks will adore it.

60. There’s something ghostly about this pie.

Well, this is a great pie for Halloween. Though the ghost is nowhere near scary.

61. Never thought I’d see a centaur with a rainbow mane and tail.

Even has rainbows around the crust. But the centaur stands proud and tall.

62. Ewww, are those fingers?

Don’t worry, the fingers aren’t real. So the only one who should be disappointed is Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

63. With this pumpkin pie, you can track pi to hundreds of place.

Yes, the value of pi is certainly infinite. But don’t take my word for it. Just look around the crust.

64. A pierate always has to have a black crust.

Instead of a skull and cross bones, this one has a pie with crossed cutlery. Pretty clever if you think about it.

65. For a painted pie, this seems to have springly mood.

I think this is for Easter from what I can tell from the colors. But this is sure a very pretty picture.

66. Seems like there was a only room for a few pi digits on this crust.

Guess it has to do with the size of the numbers. But it’s certainly a mathematical blueberry.

67. Of course, you can have the pi constant iced.

Caption: “We celebrated Pi Day 24 hours late 😦 As the roll of the cosmic dice would have it, March 14 (3.14) is also Einstein’s birthday.
What’s not to love about that?”

68. A crust with swans is perfect for a summer night.

Well, swans are seen as graceful and romantic birds. But the pie sure is pretty.

69. Seems like this pie is a real enabler.

Of course, any crust would want you to eat more pie. Still, like how it has a fork.

70. Sometimes it all comes down to either live free or pie hard.

After all, you can’t serve a pie like this unless you have explosions everywhere. Like on the 4th of July.

71. How about a woven pie with braids?

Well, if you want braids and a weave, why not go with both? Then again, you can do worse.

72. For all you science types, does a Tesla pie suit you?

Even has Tesla with his death ray. About time the noted inventor receives his own pie tribute.

73. James Bond stars in his new movie Piefinger.

Well, a chocolate Oreo cream is perfect for this 007 tribute. Almost looks like the real theme.

74. Set phasers to blackberry and sugar rocks.

Because you can’t beat a pie going where no pie has gone before. Though I wouldn’t want to eat a Klingnon steak and kidney.

75. Hope this pie can bring a smile on your face.

Well, it’s a pie with a smiley face. Guaranteed to bring you joy on your saddest days. Then again, it might bring joy without the smile.

76. With strawberries and cherries, perhaps you might want to try some pinwheels.

If you added some blueberries, it would be perfect for the 4th of July. Still, the pinwheels are cute.

77. If you love pie, then you’ll adore this one of hearts.

I’m sure you can’t help but love these hearts on a cherry pie. So pretty.

78. This crust seems a bit leafy if you ask me.

Though I think it can do with a few flowers. But this doesn’t seem to look that bad among blueberries.

79. You can’t celebrate Pi Day without a pizza like this.

Helps if it’s in pepperoni. Though if you want to know how much you want to put on just multiply pi x radius x 2.

80. For playing D&D, I suppose you need a pie like this.

It’s a pie of a D&D dice. Yes, it appears difficult to make. But it’s said to take a top level wizard chef.

81. How about some flowers for your strawberry pie?

Well, it’s not what you’d see on a summer picnic. But it’s a lovely work of art.

82. With this apple pie, you’ll find a rose inside.

And as I said with the last rose apple pie, it’s golden brown. Though many might think it’s fit to put on a table.

Green Eggs and Hamtastic Dr. Seuss Treats

Roast Beast

Aside from Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Seuss doesn’t really get into food as much as some of the fantastical stuff in his books. Though there is The Battle Butter Book where the Yooks and the Zooks engage in an arms race over a disagreement on buttering one’s bread. Yes, it sounds silly but the ending is truly dark and disturbing since it escalated to nukes. Then there’s also a book about making the best scrambled eggs with the eggs coming from various exotic birds. Oh, and the fact the Grinch steals the roast beast along with other forms of Who food including the last can of Who hash. Nevertheless, when you look on Pinterest, you’d find so many Dr. Seuss treats for themed parties. Of course, these are mostly for kids. Yet, many of them can be quite whimsical nonetheless. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of Dr. Seuss treats.

The Culinary World of Kitchen Things

fab-2-colorful-kitchen-gadgets_large_jpg

Look in any kitchen and you’re bound to find an array of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, and other appliances kept in the cupboards. Of course, many of these exist for making various different kinds of food. Yes, I know cooking can be so complicated sometimes. But tune in to TV and you’ll find at least someone advertising the latest kitchen gadget to make preparing food easier. Same goes when you shop at a store. Nevertheless, whenever you need some kitchen gear, it’s best that you shop for stuff that can be used on as many kinds of food as possible. Or on food you cook the most. Because all that kitchen stuff takes up cupboard space as well as have to be washed. And some of that crap may just not be dishwasher safe. Still, among all those essential kitchen tools, gadgets, and appliances, you’ll come to some contraptions that seem to stand out. Some may be weird gadgets that might make your life easier.

Though buying milk by the gallon jug makes much more sense. Besides, they already have handles.

10. These clip on can drainers help get the water out of the can.

Comes with all kinds of kitchen tools in a convenient storage arrangement. Wouldn’t mind having this.

29. With these oven mitts, you’ll always be ready to rock when the timer rings.

Yes, these exist. I don’t know what gave someone the idea to make them. But it’s likely people will buy it.

30. Have your cans open in no time with this toucan can opener.

Or should I say a Toucan Opener? Well, the bird has a very long beak.

31. A knife rack should always create a heroic impression.

And that’s why this one has a guy wielding a sword with knives in his shield. Makes a great conversation piece.

Now you can cut up any kiddie sandwich into delightfully bite size pieces. Comes in many configurations.

42. There’s nothing cuter in the kitchen than a duck can opener.

Yes, this is a can opener with a duck on it. Don’t ask me why it exists. Ducks should be more reserved for bath time.

43. Now this has to be a real pot holder.

If you know anyone who owns this, you might want to think twice before eating their brownies. Also, I don’t think their “tomato” plants have any tomatoes on them.

44. Your ice tongs should always contain mittens.

Sure the mittens may not serve such purpose. But they do have a certain charm to them.

45. A real lumberjack cuts pizza with an ax.

Well, this is a real ax to grind. Still, have to remind you it’s used for cutting pizza, not trees.

46. These gloves let you wash dishes like a real rocker.

Even better that they’re in pink depicting tattoos. Though one pair of gloves is as good as any.

47. A knife sharpener should always have some teeth to it.

Though I do think a shark knife sharpener is quite fitting. Hope it makes the kitchen knives razor sharp.

48. Now that’s an interesting kitchen knife holder.

Yes, it has a guy stuck to a knife throwing wheel. Yes, I know you’d have a sick mind to own that. And yes, I think it’s kind of funny.

49. A Pac-Man oven mitt can always stand the heat.

Great for anyone who likes baking and old-time video games from the 1980s. Though it won’t help you through a maze.

50. Some may need this knife rack like they need a hole in the head.

I know only Hannibal Lecter would own a knife rack like this. But I couldn’t pass this one up.

51. You can peel potatoes with the turn of a crank.

Well, that’s an ingenious way to peel veggies. Though perhaps a regular peeler can get the job done better.

52. Nothing starts your morning like a medieval coffee maker.

Okay, they didn’t have coffee in the Middle Ages. Yet, I think this will be perfect for any torture chamber or dungeon.

53. Cutting through pizza should be as simple as sawing wood.

So it’s no wonder there’s a power saw pizza cutter. Not sure if it’s safe to operate though.

54. Why roast marshmallows when you can use this in the microwave?

Yes, this is for smores. Still, wouldn’t mind having this. Wonder if you can use it with other sandwiches.

55. Bunny mixers always make cooking fun.

Each one comes with a digital display and bunny handles. Nevertheless, so cute.

56. Condiment guns are always handy at barbecues.

Comes with 2 canisters for ketchup and mustard. Wonder if they have ones for horse radish and mayonnaise.

57. With this ring, you can always know how much pasta you need.

Sure it’s not as fun as the knuckles. But it’s nonetheless convenient.

58. Store your dinner cutlery on this handy dinner boat.

Crazy enough, it resembles a boat. Though it might only hold enough for a setting or two.

59. This banana slicer seems rather appealing.

Though looking at this, you wouldn’t know it’s a banana slicer. Seems more like a large paper clip.

60. Presenting the ultimate vegetable slicer and dicer.

Comes with so many components for all your salad needs. Yet, you’re probably better off with a conventional mandolin.

61. It’s always easy to chop anything on a file folder.

Though the board is made from silicon. Still, think it’s kind of clever. Wouldn’t mind having this.

62. If you need to baste anything, this highlighter is all you need.

Though this one is using fruit at the moment. Still, don’t use it to highlight special passages in books. It’s a kitchen tool.

63. With this briefcase, grating is taking care of business.

Well, at least it has a nice handle to it that makes it easy to use. Also, its design is quite simple.

64. Your kitchen can’t go wrong with a bouquet of measuring spoons.

When you’re cooking these are used for measuring things. When not, they’re just for decoration.

65. There’s nothing more manly than a cutting board with a small ax.

Not sure if you can detach the ax. But at least it gives anyone in the kitchen a smooth surface.

66. Should you get a rolling pin, have one good at measuring dough.

Even has little adjusters in order to help you. Yet, I’m not sure how they fit on the pin.

67. Sometimes a serated knife can use a little bent.

This one is used to get certain things out of peppers. Still, sure wouldn’t want to wash that.

68. A smart coffee machine always has your brew when you need it.

A smart coffee maker, now I’ve seen everything. Even comes with an app you put on your smart phone.

69. With this spray top, you can now make a room smell like anything.

After all, why use chemicals to freshen up a room when you can use the fruit in your home? It’s cheaper.

70. Introducing Jumping Jack salad tongs.

Yes, it resembles a pair of legs sticking out of a salad. But it’s kind of the point. I know some will desire an explanation.

71. These kitchen tools make cooking fun.

I think these might be for kids. But they’re in bright colors with arms and legs. So strangely delightful.

72. Lid Sid can always hold it over the pot.

Yes, I know what it looks like. But you can basically use Lid Sid to hold up anything, especially in the kitchen.

73. This contraption sharpens knives like magic.

So what if it depicts a woman in a box being sawed in half? It’s just a magic trick illusion. Still, this is sick.

74. With this board, you can chop onions like a real psycho killer.

I’m sure Alfred Hitchcock will be quite pleased with this. Though best not use it in the shower.

75. You can make any kind of noodles with this pasta maker.

Well, you have to hand it to modern technology. Though I guess spaghetti is the easiest for this one.

76. You have the electric kettle and then there’s a smart kettle.

And you can monitor the water in it with your smart phone. Isn’t modern technology great?

77. Get your veggies cut with Spiral Flex.

You can just turn the crank and watch the cucumber be reduced to shreds. Seems quite handy.

78. You can show all the chopping moves with this DJ cutting board.

Well, it’s a different kind of counter top. Doesn’t play music but it’s good enough.

79. A pancake pen gives you loads of breakfast time fun.

Now you can create lots of shapes on the griddle with pancake batter. This one is shaped like a crayon.

80. This robot nutcracker is at your service.

Okay, it’s just a regular nutcracker that looks like a robot. But it’s nevertheless adorable.

81. Serve your dishes with this dustbin tray.

Yes, this is a tray. And yes, it’s for food. I know what you’d think of that.

82. Clothes pin chopsticks are great with Chinese food.

Wonder if it’s easier to hold than regular chopsticks. Because I’m not good eating with them.

83. This Swiss Army Knife set keeps all your measuring spoons in place.

Could really use this. Just flip through to get the spoon you need. Love it.

84. I’m sure a gnome timer will ring whenever your food is ready.

Well, it’s a gnome snow globe. Yes, I know it’s tacky. But garden gnomes have their fans.

85. The towel-a-matic dispenser is at your service.

Of course, a regular paper towel dispenser is just as good. Can’t see why that has to be automated.

86. With a robotic stirrer, you don’t need any hands.

So if you’re tired of stirring your food, this is for you. Wonder if this actually works.

87. Fork? Chopsticks? Or both?

Because why should you have to choose when you eat Chinese food? Though I’d usually go with fork.

88. Shave off corn of the cob with this donut device.

This one at least has a dish to catch the kernels. Yet, best to eat it off the cob.

89. Someone must’ve had a little accident.

Actually it’s a cutting board that resembles a pool of blood. But yes, I know why people would be freaked out.

90. This rocker makes pouring from jugs easier.

After all, a full jug is pretty heavy. So I hope this puts you at ease.

91. Nothing brings the party like a disco ball tumbler set.

No, these aren’t remnants from the 1970s. These are real. But they’re tacky nonetheless.

92. Keep your hands safe with farfalloni pot holders.

These are made from silicone by the way. Wouldn’t mind having them though.

93. Slicing pizza should be as easy as cutting with scissors.

Pizza cutters are normally round. But this one isn’t. Still, wouldn’t mind having this.

94. Now you can have literal beer goggles.

Well, these aren’t the beer goggles you’re thinking about. Sure they’re not useful but they’er quite funny.

95. You can always count on this cube timer.

Not sure how this work. But I kind of like it. Probably has some digital technology to it.

96. From what I see on the oven mitt, someone likes what’s in the oven.

It’s a Facebook Like mitt. Made possible by the impact of social media.

97. These dish gloves have memorable faces.

Well, hand puppet gloves. Handy for distracting yourself when doing the dishes.

98. These salad tongs seem really precise.

These tongs consist of large arrows. Great for grabbing salad and indicating where it is.

These pots would be handy for cooking pasta. Comes in orange and purple.

Yes, they resemble paper weights. But they’re peelers. Keep them away from children.

The Wonderful World of Peep Shows (No, Not that Kind) (Fourth Edition)

Of course, nothing could say Easter on my blog than another post on peep dioramas. As you probably know that peeps are these sugar coated marshmallows in the forms of bunnies and chicks that are unfit for human consumption. Though that doesn’t stop people from trying to pass them off as Easter candy. However, there is a better way to use these inedible marshmallows of cuteness for this Easter season. And that’s where peep dioramas come in. Over the years I’ve done posts of these cuteness scenes mostly mocking pop culture and concepts of every day life. And while kids make them, you can say a lot of these I show aren’t necessarily G-Rated. Though there are plenty of contests, with the most notable being from the Washington Post. But a lot of them are clever while I certainly enjoy them. So as long as there’s Easter, my viewers will have to put up with them. Thus, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of peep dioramas.

  1. Hope the Finch bunnies come to no harm but I doubt it.

I see little Scout is dressed in her little ham costume. And I see they discovered some of the stuff Boo Radley left in a tree.

2. Apparently, Escher knows how to make bunnies feel at home.

Well, this is supposed to be an optical illusion. But such executions don’t work that well in dioramas.

3. “O say can you peep,/By the bun’s early light…”

Well, that’s a great rendition of the American flag. Though it seems more red, white, and pink.

4. Apparently, these two bunnies just jumped off a cliff.

This is a diorama of Thelma & Louise for those who don’t recognize it. It’s not a movie for kids. But this is pretty funny.

5. The Gary and Mary West Senior Peep Center is the place for elderly chicks and bunnies.

I know plenty wouldn’t get this at first since inedible peeps never age. But this is quite clever.

6. Guess Peep Co. isn’t known for swell service.

Then again, they could just be fixing the power lines after a really bad storm. But I’m not sure the bunny family sees it that way.

7. Peepsus died for our sins so he can rise from the dead.

Yes, it’s another Jesus portrait with chicks. But this one contains a pink sacred heart.

8. The Mythpeepers have experienced a little accident.

Of course, it’s widely said that marshmallows explode in microwaves. And I’m sure these guys will need a new one.

9. In this ark, the peeps come in 2 by 2.

Well, Noah’s Ark seems like a natural choice. Though I do like how some of the bunnies are depicted as animals.

10. With peeps, life can always be a fairy tale.

You can see some of your favorites on this little storybook diorama. Contains some of your favorites. Please, by my guest.

11. Like the rest of us, peeps had to go to school, too.

Though it seems like we have some high school peeps in our midst. The teacher is even using PowerPoint.

12. Now here’s a beauty pageant I’d like to see.

Hope there’s not a real creepy bunny with awful hair looking into them while dressing. Okay, I might’ve went too far with this.

13. “E-Peep phone home.”

Nice how they have the iconic bike scene to pay tribute. Spielberg would be proud.

14. As you can see, peeps come in all kinds in the world.

They also dress quite differently. But this diorama gives a nice image of world peace and harmony.

15. Chemistry lab helps peeps learn about the world through science.

Yes, it’s another classroom diorama. But let’s hope no one resorts to causing explosions.

16. Is this a yoga class or tai chi?

Then again, there’s some bamboo imagery so it seems to be tai chi. But you can’t always tell wit peeps on mats.

17. These bunnies are in the yard doing hard time.

And these bunnies live in a literal cardboard prison. Too bad they couldn’t do a peeps chain gang.

18. Peepsburgh is a hopping place.

I don’t think “Peepsburgh” was a play on Pittsburgh. But I wish it was. Because this seems like a rather small town.

19. “Someday, my peepce will come…”

As you can see, this is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Like the evil bunny queen with her magic mirror.

20. Oh, shit, the FBI just had to stage a pot bust.

Though I know these aren’t anything to laugh about, this peep version is kind of hilarious. I mean you can’t resist laughing at a bunny with a bong.

21. Peepanardo paints his masterpiece the Mona Peepsa.

Though the real Leonardo more likely had her for one sitting with a sketch. Though this is a very iconic image from the historical imagination with peeps.

22. Julius Caesar should’ve beware the Ides of Marshmallow.

Too bad he didn’t listen and got stabbed in the back by his so-called friends in the Senate. Et u, Brute, indeed.

23. Looks like Vincent Van Peep has a very nice place.

Yeah, I know I’ve put peep dioramas of Van Gogh stuff before. But this one is of a different painting entirely.

24. I don’t know about you, but Black Chick looks very creepy to me.

This is a parody of Black Swan, a psycho sexual thriller starring Natalie Portman. Yes, this film very creepy.

25. Even bunnies get into Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Yes, I included a Mardi Gras one last year. But this one includes more beads and bunnies.

26. Let’s be quiet as the king prepares for his speech.

Yes, this is a play on The King’s Speech with 2 scenes. Notice how the therapist and king are sharing earphones.

27. Now these hunky bunnies are about to get naked in Magic Peep XXL.

I saw the original Magic Mike and didn’t care for it. So I didn’t watch the sequel. Still, I think this diorama is better than the movie it’s parodying.

28. Look out, Harry, the peepalisk is right behind you!

I have to admire this diorama of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Though the snake in this isn’t quite scary.

29. In an alternative universe…..

Okay, that’s really sick and twisted. Whoever thought up this must have a very warped imagination.

30. As you probably know, peeps consist of many elements.

A periodic table of peeps. Never saw that before. Guess someone must be very into science.

31. Is this a work of art or an artist’s model?

Well, either way, someone seems to be interested. Maybe she’s one of those living statues.

32. “Today we’re going to explore what’s inside a chocolate bunny.”

This is a take off from the Rembrandt painting, The Anatomy Lesson. Though I don’t think these chicks will find anything inside this chocolate bunny since it’s hollow.

33. “Come with me, and you’ll see in a world of pure imagination…”

Now that’s a very ambitious diorama of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They even have Augustus Gloop in a chocolate tube.

34. Say hello to the newest Disney princess.

Yes, you get to see so many of your favorite Disney princesses as bunnies. Even includes Princess Leia with her sticky bun hair style.

35. Apparently, Pope Julius II and his crew came to see Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel.

I guess the artist doesn’t want to be disturbed. However, having the Creation of Adam in bunny heads is clever.

36. Georgia O’Peeps paints a landscape in the New Mexican desert.

At least they don’t have her doing any flower paintings. Because those aren’t appropriate for children.

37. In Italy, you can’t leave without seeing the Leaning Tower of Peepsa.

They even have chicks sticking out of it. Not sure if that’s even safe.

38. “All we are saying is give peeps a chance…”

This is a parody of John and Yoko’s bed in after their wedding. I know it’s crazy but that was the late 1960s.

39. The Dark Knight always seeks justice for Gotham City.

You can guess this is a peep diorama of Batman. Though this one is more in comic book story mode.

40. Looks like there’s a showing of Star Wars at the Bunny Hi Drive In Theater.

I see they’re at the part when Obi Wan duels with Darth Vader. You can guess what happens from here.

41. Unfortunately, Dr. Who can’t avoid the dalek chicks for long.

I don’t know much about Dr. Who. But I have to admit making chick peeps of daleks is rather funny.

42. On some days, you feel like you’re gonna scream.

As you might know, this is a peep parody of Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Of course, it’s also the most famous painting to come from Norway.

43. Guess the Lincolns didn’t have a good time at the theater that night.

Didn’t know you could find a peep diorama of the Lincoln assassination at Ford’s Theatre. I know it’s kind of crazy, but I’ll put it on the post.

44. Don’t feed the animals at Jurassic Peep.

Then again, the dinosaurs might eat them if they’re not careful. Yeah, perhaps cloning dinosaurs for tourism is a very bad idea.

45. Wonder what trouble Indy has gotten into this time.

I guess whatever trinket he stole, he’s probably justified since it belongs in a museum. Though the bunny heads on stakes is pretty sick.

46. With his squire at his side, Don Peepote  charges at the nefarious giant.

Unfortunately, it’s actually a windmill and he gets severely injured. Still, a great rendition of Miguel Cervantes’ classic novel.

47. “How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a stay puff…”

I had to include one of Hamilton with the cast members singing their lines from the title song. Some of them are quite clever.

48. When these chicks demand the right to vote, they mean business.

Here suffragettes are protesting in front of the White House during the Wilson administration. Eventually their efforts paid off in 1920 with the 19th Amendment.

49. Here we come to the discovery of King Tutankhabun’s tomb.

I even saw a version where it lights up. But I think this photo does much more justice. Like the hieroglyphs and art.

50. Hester Peep will now and forever be branded as an adulteress and doomed to wear the Letter A.

Yes, they even have a peep diorama of the book you had to read in high school. Sure Puritains won’t approve of this but I don’t care.

Hop Down the Bunny Trail for These Easter Treats (Third Edition)

dsc_7446_s4x3_lead

Now that the penitential season of Lent has begun, I can now move on to Easter. Yes, I know it’s not even Saint Patrick’s Day yet. But in previous years, I’ve done Easter posts as far back as February. Besides, it’s best that I start early so I can get as many views on Easter stuff as possible. Anyway, though Easter is widely considered a religious holiday denoting Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, we have a lot of spring motifs and pastel colors associated with it. When families get together, you can bet there will be some sort of dinner followed by a children’s egg hunt (though I’d prefer to listen to the concept album version of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Jesus Christ Superstar). Nevertheless, such an Easter dinner usually consists of ham as a main course despite that Jesus and his disciples would’ve never eaten it during the Last Supper for the same reason Ben and Jerry won’t use bacon in their ice cream (even for a flavor honoring Ron Swanson for fans’ dismay). Nevertheless, as per tradition on this blog, I am sure to bring you some delectable delights for you and your family to enjoy. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of Easter treats.

  1. Nothing says Easter like a candy coated bunny cake.
Though I guess the candy here is jelly beans mostly. Don't really like the pea green here.

Erin Go Bragh with These Lucky Treats on Saint Patrick’s Day (Third Edition)

st-patricks-party17

After we’re done with pink hearts, love, and chocolates, it’s time for rainbows, green stuff, and all things Irish for Saint Patrick’s Day. Though seen primarily as a religious holiday in Ireland since March 17 honors the nation’s patron’s saint, many see it as a day to either express their Irish heritage and attend local parades or attend an Irish pub crawl. Or both if they’re over 21 years old. Then there’s the fact Americans like to commercialize everything and Saint Paddy’s Day is no exception. So if you’re from Ireland in the States at the moment, expect to see leprechauns and offensive Irish stereotypes along with cultural appropriation. And if you’re at Notre Dame, then may God have mercy on your soul since they have a leprechaun mascot. Seriously, despite the leprechaun mythology originating in Ireland (and rarely appearing in it), modern depictions are largely based on derogatory 19th century caricatures and Irish stereotypes. Let’s just say the 19th century was a very terrible time to be Irish. And most people living outside Ireland in the 21st century have absolutely no idea why the Irish find leprechauns imagery so freaking offensive. But Americans usually accept this because many of these leprechaun stuff nowadays have been perpetuated by Irish Americans. For instance, it was probably an Irish priest who decided that Notre Dame should be the Fightin’ Irish and have bruising leprechaun as their mascot. At any rate, it’s celebrated all over the world including places you wouldn’t expect like Russia or Japan since you won’t find many Irish people there. However, in Latin America, there was a historical figure named Bernardo O’Higgins. And it’s celebrated in more countries than in any other national festival. So for your reading pleasure, I give you yet another assortment of some lucky treats for Saint Paddy’s Day.

  1. This veggie rainbow will lead you to a pot of goldfish crackers.
Sure it may be a bento lunch. But at least it's rather healthy despite only including 4 colors.
