A different, XL pie every day for $16!

Ah! A girl's sweet 16 is a special coming-of-age celebration. This party, marking the transition into adulthood, has over time become a bit of a spectacle. The days of it being small parties at home have turned into full-on "bridezilla"-like monstrosities in hotels, boats, and/or halls with extravagant, thematic productions deflating many a father's wallet.

Thankfully not all of these celebrations have to be so invariably disproportionate so as to offset the economies of developing nations. No. Sometimes cooler heads prevail. Jen Morales and Phoebe Reckseit, the Pizza Girls, are collectively celebrating their business' transition into "adulthood" and are being very adult about it.

This month, the month of their birth, they will feature an extra-large pie from their gourmet menu as the pizza of the day for, you guessed it, a mere $16.

Caleb's Kola. Back to basics.
"Tested batch after batch"... "sustainable Fair Trade cane sugar"... "a special blend of spices from around the world"... "a distinct foamy head."

Is this the description for a new, artisan, exotic beverage? In a way, yes. And no.

The above words are part of the launch campaign for Caleb's Kola, Pepsi's new foray into the craft beverage market.

Celebrate National Taco Day.
Once again, a made-up holiday steals our hearts. This time, it's National Taco Day. The taco, you'll be fascinated to know, predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico, making it a truly authentic dish. And, although the first tacos were basically corn tortillas used as a way to hold tiny fish, we've since discovered it's the perfect food.

No one knows the versatility of the taco better than BC Cafe's Brett Chiavari who is celebrating National Taco Day with some unique creations.

IHOP Is Launching Bac 'n' Cheddar Waffles

IHOP
Waffles with the bacon built right in. What a great idea!
Waffles. They're delicious, sure, but they're also so versatile. Although most of us just slap some butter and syrup on them and call it breakfast, that geometric battered delight can also be used as a sandwich base, an ice cream cone, or a dessert.

Most of all, they're just delicious. Especially with some bacon. Which is why International House of Pancakes' (IHOP) new creation just smacks of delicious excess.

Dolphins Wife Christy Denney, the Girl Who Ate Everything, Releasing Cookbook September 9

The Girl Who Ate Everything
Double-decker taco cupcakes.

For all the turbulence one can come across in the media stemming from the shenanigans of NFL players, it is refreshing when an NFL-tinged story comes out that does not involve nightclub beatdowns, bullying, locker-room vitriol, and so-so seasons. Yes, we're talking about the Miami Dolphins. But this is not a story about the Miami Dolphins, directly. This is a story that happens to involve the wife of the longest current-serving member of the Miami Dolphins.

We're talking about long snapper and all-around solid special teams member John Denney, a man who has kept a low profile, a level head, and an unquestioned relevance within the team.

It is no surprise that as the mother of their five children, Christy Denney also exhibits a calm and dignified demeanor. This Mormon family has kept out of the limelight and has managed to carve for themselves a pretty good life in South Florida as members of the Dolphins franchise. John's gargantuan caloric needs as an athlete were evident soon after they married, and Christy's passion for food was reawakened. In 2008, she took to the internet with her blog, The Girl Who Ate Everything, and has worked as a recipe developer for General Mills.

John has been the first line of defense for "the benefits of the dishes that turn out and stomachs the ones that don't."

This could be you!

Or maybe you've been obsessed with the opportunity to "ring the bell" at Trader Joe's -- happily telling other "crew members" that a customer needs assistance in cryptic nautical terms.

If you're consumed with all things Trader Joe's and want to join them as a "trader on the high seas", proudly sporting colorful tropical gear as you assist shoppers in finding the last jar of cookie butter or helping them place a case of "Two Buck Chuck" into their mini van, you're in luck.
