With Easter just around the corner, the stress of having to figure out how to impress family and friends with your cooking skills can be overwhelming. We’ve all been there as we worried about the time, money and effort it would take to finally pry that “that looks delicious!” compliment from your least favourite relative or frenemy. But what do you do when your cooking skills are lackluster or worse, non-existent?
Here are five tips that will surely impress those so-called foodies in your life.
1. Just add parsley
BAM! Instantly fancy.
2. Turn simple bread rolls into cute bunnies
… or pikachu if they don’t turn out right
In this edition of “Unpopular Opinion of the Day,” physicist David Neevel absolutely abhors the cream in the middle of the Oreo cookie. He hates it so much that he built a machine to remove the cream from Oreo leaving him to eat the cookies.
Neevel had to sacrifice a lot to build his creation, such as having to work in a cold space, missing out on spending time with his girlfriend and his dog, and having to find a good sandwich where his workshop is located.
While we do see it as a waste of perfectly good Oreo cookie, the machine was able to impressively clean the icing right off of the cookie.
The Ambercrombie models were nice to look at, Fun.’s cover was, well, fun, and Jimmy Fallon and the Roots did a great job backing up the Carly Rae Jepsen with toy instruments. Though, I think it’s safe to say, you know you’ve made it when Sesame Street does a cover of your song.
Cookie Monster gets in on the “Call Me Maybe” action by putting a very Sesame Street twist on the summer hit. The beloved monster took a break from his vegetables, going back to his cookie roots, and asks his co-workers to “share it, maybe.” I think Cookie Monster channeled my soul when he sang this verse:
“You cookie showing
Me hunger growing
Get skim milk flowing
Get this snack going, baby”
That is exactly how I feel when I see cookies baking in the oven. So now, I just may or may not sing this song every time one of my roommates bakes some. I also may or may not have my very own Cookie Monster puppet to sing at them with.
Don’t judge me. I think the more pathetic I look, the more likely my roommates will take pity on me and give me a cookie. It’s not my fault Cookie Monster taught me how delicious cookies as a kid before he went the vegetable route.
