100 people attempt to eat durian, the stinkiest fruit in the world

The infamous McDonald’s Szechuan sauce that was brought back to life by Rick and Morty this year is causing people to do some ridiculous things.   A horde of rude fans berated fast food workers for a chance to taste a limited run of the sauce and one person even traded an actual car to get some.

Turkey Meatloaf

Turkey Meatloaf

Ah, meatloaf…the American classic supper! Despite her desperate five o’clock scramble, my mom – an artist and mother of four — always managed to pull off a mean meatloaf. I remember her frantically pulling apart a slice or two of bread to make crumbs, and then throwing them into a bowl with an egg, some ketchup, grated onion, and ground beef. And then there was the grated carrot, which qualified as a vegetable (along with the ketchup). She shaped it into a mound, threw it in the pan, drizzled the…

Persimmons are better than pumpkins. Don’t fight me on this.

Before the first official day of fall arrived, we were already bombarded with every pumpkin-flavored item in the market. Pumpkin is the favorite that all the other vegetables and fruits hate this time of year. What about the other fall produce trying to make their comeback after the summer’s heat?  They need some love too.  There’s always a few that try to weave their way into the pumpkin phenomenon (I see you sweet potatoes and apples), but one fruit stands out to me in the long list provided by Fruits…
