• Fans love creating dishes inspired by their favorite books and tv shows, and "fantasy food" is now a full-blown trend. The Wall Street Journal

• Crispy, smoky fried oysters smothered in zesty remoulade sauce and nestled in soft, miniature brioche buns is an new (and cute!) take on traditional po'boys. Gilt Taste

• Will Ferrell's passion for Old Milwaukee Beer is expressed in all its glory in a series of low-budget commercials that he's been making on the sly. Eater

• Surprisingly enough, cool ranch Doritios make for an excellent consomme. This unusual broth serves as the perfect base for Southwestern inspired dishes like corn and shrimp soup. CHOW

• We can't stop laughing at this fauxmercial for Brunchables, an ultra hip take on lunchables that feature pre-packed meals that aren't quite breakfast, and aren't quite lunch. College Humor

• Keep your holiday guests happy with the finger foods magic formula: a base, a spread, and a topper. New York Times

• Even though the weather outside is frightful, it's never too cold for yummy peppermint ice cream. The Pioneer Woman
