How many times have you been up late working, watching TV, or just hanging out with friend then have gotten a strong craving for junk food? Just the thought of a candy bar, bag of chips, or a big juicy fast food burger made your mouth water. Most everyone has been there at some point, especially college students and new parents. Well, there are recent studies showing a brain response to sugary and fatty foods after being sleep deprived. They found a connection between the craving and a lack of sleep.
My husband (my wife decided to take the rank on this one) has a second love in his life besides me and it is barbecuing. He work all week, but every weekend rain, snow, or blazing heat he is out on the back patio attached to his grilling area. He does not have a man cave; he has his barbecuing Macca. My husband has at least three different types of grills. Well, he says he has one gas grill, a charcoal pit, and a wood smoker. He has wanted to get into local barbecuing competitions, so I thought the Competition BBQ Secrets: A Barbecue Instruction Manual for Serious Competitors and Back Yard Cooks Too by fame BBQ multi-award winner BBQ champion Bill Anderson. This proved to be a great decision. In fact, maybe too great. I became a BBQ widow for weeks while he tried every tip, trick, and technique in the book.

Anywhere you turn, you see various fattening foods available. It’s hard for people who are so used to eating and drinking whatever they want to be restricted because they are on government assistance.
When someone thinks of the world “food” they often think of Gordon Ramsay. He’s not your average chef and he sure has impressed the world with his cooking and his personality. Hell’s Kitchen is running its tenth season and most people find that incredible, even Ramsay himself thinks that is rather impressive. The Gordon that you see on television is not what the everyday Gordon is like. In fact, if you were to come into contact with Gordon in real life, you may be confused as to who he is. Gordon is a very relaxed individual that carries himself very professionally.
The news is always an interesting subject because people can become easily protective of their culture. The Kardashians are a pretty powerful bunch when it comes to television. You can watch their reality TV shows and really start understanding “who” they are and the impact they have on the world. Normal people that go out to eat do not have to worry about a television camera crew following them around. Not to mention that you really do not know what they are going to end up airing on the actual show when it “airs.”
