            We got a champion barista to rank the sub-par coffee your parents drink

            For coffee aficionados, it can be hard to remember the days before fair-trade, adjective-heavy specialty coffee. But before Counter Culture, or even Starbucks, there were first-wave roasters peddling steel cans of grounds (gasp!), the likes of which are now only seen on visits to your parents' house.

            So to see if any of these coffees are actually good to the last drop, we asked Lorenzo Perkins, certified coffee instructor at Cuvée and executive council member of the Barista Guild of America, to put five of the biggest coffee brands through the same rigorous blind-tasting process that his roasting company applies to their own beans.

            "This is actually something I think all my colleagues should do. When you're only drinking specialty coffee, you lose that global perspective."

            We pillaged the grocery coffee aisle and came away with five contenders: Folgers Classic Roast, Maxwell House French Roast, Chock full o'Nuts Original, Community Coffee Cafe Special, and Yuban.

            5. MAXWELL HOUSE
            Aromas: Wet dog, burning
            Flavors: Fish oil, despair
            "What death tastes like."

            4. YUBAN
            Aromas: Snickers bar, barn-y
            Flavors: Mineral oil, chocolate
            "This tastes better than it smells. It's a close call with Maxwell House, but this edged it out because I can actually swallow it. Bonus points for pleasant graphic design."

            3. FOLGERS
            Aromas: Unhappy children, wet wool
            Flavors: Charred, wet cardboard, artificiality
            "It tastes as if someone sprayed coffee flavor onto coffee beans

            2. CHOCK FULL O'NUTS
            Aromas: Burnt hair
            Flavors: Roasted Styrofoam, gamey
            "It's savory, kind of like you're eating wild boar meat that's about to turn. That said, this isn't that bad. I wouldn't return it if I was eating in a Denny's."

            1. COMMUNITY COFFEE
            Aromas: Chocolate, honey, wet paper
            Flavors: Actual acidity, syrup-like sweetness, oh-sweet-surrender & mercy
            "That's coffee! This could pass for a low-grade specialty coffee."

            After the relentless tasting, Lorenzo poured himself a cup of Cuvée that he'd brewed several hours prior. He originally considered the batch foul by his normal standards, but after a few hours of cupping the big brands it took on an entirely new character: it was suddenly really, really good.

            Although Lorenzo literally gagged several times during the test, and the rest of the staff remarked that the roastery smelled like a sewer lit on fire, by the end of the day he conceded that both Chock full 'oNuts and Community Coffee were not as gross as he expected and are actually deserving of some respect. The other grounds confirmed that most of the titans of first-wave coffee are truly washed up.

              Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese Sticks


              I keep thinking that one day I’ll get sick of eating so much bacon, but amazingly it still hasn’t happened. In fact, as time goes by I only seem to be growing more and more fond of it as I keep incorporating it into more of my meals, which with how much I already eat doesn’t even seem like it should be possible.

              Recently I came up with an idea to make some grilled cheese sticks, but after a quick Google search I found that tons of people have already made and written about that same exact thing. What I didn’t see though were any grilled cheese sticks that were wrapped in bacon!

              Do you know what’s even better than how great these Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese Sticks taste? How easy they are to make! Then again, pretty much everything I make is easy because I have absolutely zero cooking experience whatsoever.

              Alright, so you want to make your own Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese Sticks? Start off by frying up a couple grilled cheese sandwiches and then cutting each sandwich into for or five pieces. Then, wrap bacon strips around your grilled cheese sticks and to finish things off you can either drop them in a deep fryer for 45 seconds or so, or just put them on a baking sheet in your oven for 17 minutes at 375°.

              I’m pretty sure I’ve yet to come across a food that isn’t better when it’s wrapped in bacon. It’s not only the addition of bacon that makes it good though, it’s the fact that as the grease drips from the bacon it’s usually soaked up by whatever it is that the bacon is wrapped around.

                            The 9 most unbelievable new foods from the OC Fair

                            The best thing about the OC Fair isn't the janky rides run by dudes half your age who'll probably kill you -- that honor is instead reserved for the nine, new, mostly deep-fried things pictured below (which will also probably kill you). If you dare, they're all available from now until August 10th.

                            Bacon A-Fair's Cave Man Club
                            This? This is only the GREATEST THING THAT'S EVER EXISTED. Yes, it is a smoked turkey leg, totally wrapped in bacon, and -- you guessed it -- deep-fried. If there was ever another, better thing that ever existed, it hasn't, so stop lying about it.

                              Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna Recipe


                              Time: 1 hour Yield: 1 (9-by-13-inch) pan

                              2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
                              2 medium yellow onions, halved and sliced thin
                              2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
                              1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
                              2 poblano peppers, sliced thin
                              2 cubanelle peppers, sliced thin
                              1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
                              12 wavy lasagna noodles
                              2 pounds cooked roast beef, sliced thin
                              12 slices sharp provolone
                              1 (15-ounce) jar Cheez Whiz
                              1 cup freshly grated aged provolone

                              1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
                              2. Heat a large Dutch oven or wok over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add onions and sauté until soft. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over them and cook until they just start to brown, about 10 minutes. Add mushrooms, peppers, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Turn heat to high and sauté for 8-10 minutes or until all the juices have released and evaporated. Turn off heat and stir in black pepper.
                              3. Boil 2 quarts of water in a large pot and cook lasagna noodles for 4 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with olive oil so the noodles don't stick together.
                              4. Layer noodles side by side with edges overlapping in 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Stack 1 pound of roast beef evenly over the noodles. Lay 6 slices of provolone over the beef. Top with half of the mushroom-onion-pepper mixture. Spread half the Cheez Whiz on top. Repeat layers once more. To finish, spread out the remaining noodles and top with grated provolone.
                              Bake for 30 minutes.
                              5. Let this beast sit for 15 minutes before cutting into it.

                                #HackTheMenu is a handy collection of secret menus for fast food restaurants like Chipotle Mexican Grill and In-N-Out Burger. Not only does #HackTheMenu include the names and descriptions of such items, but it also specifically covers how to order products like the “Quesarito” that aren’t traditionally on the menu.
