(0) Comments | Posted July 1, 2015 | 3:05 PM

 

Summer corn is so great. It's sweet, crunchy and never gets boring. But getting the corn off the cob is not so great. The process can be messy and clumsy, and ends up wasting more kernels than you'd hope. There is a solution. A hack, if you will.

It requires that you own a Bundt pan. (If you don't already have one, this trick -- and these 31 recipes -- will be reason enough to invest in one.) Plus, did we mention this method catches the kernels AND their juices?

Watch the video above from the good folks at Saveur to see how it's done. And eat corn flawlessly this summer.

(0) Comments | Posted June 30, 2015 | 11:53 AM

 

If you know the greatness that is Oreo, you know that getting your fill of the cream-stuffed chocolate sandwich cookie is impossible. No matter how many Oreos you eat, how many you bake into cakes, how many you devour with ice cream, it never feels like enough. YouTuber "Hey! It’s Mosogourmet” feels those same feelings, which is why she set out to make one of the biggest Oreo cookies we've ever seen.   

 The giant cookie is made of two fudgy chocolate cakes, baked into giant Oreo cookie molds and filled with a whipped cream frosting. It's everything you could ever hope it would be, and we haven't even shown you the best part yet:

There are Oreo cookies IN the whipped cream frosting. Folks, life doesn't get better than this. Watch the video above to see how it's done and then head on over to Hey! It's Mosogourmet!!'s You Tube page for the complete recipe.
