Video Tip: Make a Broiler Map

Here is a video tip from the popular cooking show America's Test Kitchen where you take a number of bread slices, place them on a half sheet pan, and then place them 4 in away from your broiler.  You  do this so you can "map" the hot spots of your broiler as most ovens don't necessarily heat evenly.

It's a great tip, and once you know where your hot spots are you can either avoid them or use them to your advantage!

America's Test Kitchen is one of my favorite cooking shows that I continually go back to watch over and over, as they have practical and useful information, unlike some of those food shows that are shown on a "network dedicated" to food.  *hint hint nudge nudge*

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit user tylercap posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland.

nsfw language and imagery for both chili and "like a boss" video after the jump.

I had to give the boiling crab only one star this time out because frankly they missed the mark on a number of the areas I judge a establishment upon.  Find out more on why I don't recommend going to The Boiling Crab...
