Cacio e Pepe Chips


Cacio E Pepe Chips

Cacio e pepe works on so many things, this chips recipe is just our latest obsession with using the whole flavor combination.


1 8-ounce bag kettle-cooked potato chips
1½ ounces Pecorino, finely grated (about 1½ cups)
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 425°. Arrange potato chips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle half of cheese evenly over chips. Bake until cheese is melted and chips are just starting to brown around the edges, about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top with remaining cheese and pepper. Let cool, then transfer to a serving bowl.

This Nescafé Pop-Up Coffee Shop Wants You to Bring Your Own Coffee


As java lovers continue to get more and more creative (hello, nitro coffee!), and sometimes even flat-out strange (have you tried avolattes yet?!), the instant coffee original, Nescafé, is bringing the caffeine-filled beverage back to basics with a brand new pop-up café that’s… unconventional, to say the least.

Located in Toronto, the cheeky pop-up has been dubbed the Nescafé Taproom, and unlike traditional coffee shops, it’s a BYOC — bring your own coffee. Yup, you read that right! While the building does provide on-site hot water taps to make your instant brew, the cans themselves will be courtesy of your own kitchen (or the store as you’re en route). In fact, this place is so self-service, you even let yourself in: Simply scan your Nescafe...

A New Study Says Drinking Coffee Makes Us Better at This Important Activity

This article originally appeared on HelloGiggles. For more stories like this, visit Fire up the coffee maker, ladies and gents! It’s time to break a sweat! According to The Cut, a new study conducted by Professor Bruno Gualano at the University of São Paulo gives evidence that drinking coffee makes us better at working out. Prof. Gualano is an avid bicyclist as well as an avid coffee-drinker. He wanted to know if drinking coffee can boost exercise performance. To do this, Gualano gathered a group of competitive male cyclists and divided them into three groups based on their normal daily caffeine intake. The first group’s caffeine intake was low (less than one cup of coffee per day). The second group’s intake was moderate (about two cups per day)....

S’mores Are Now a Totally Normal Restaurant Dessert


Why go camping when you can order perfectly good s’mores at restaurants? You don’t even have to know how to start a fire. We’ve seen them all around the country lately, and are definitely not complaining. S’mores have been spotted at: Emmer & Rye in Austin, mixed bran crackers sandwich orange marshmallows and chocolate ganache. At slider paradise that is Detroit’s Green Dot Stables, they come as, yep, slider s'mores, with marshmallow fluff and Nutella.

After you gorge on fries at the newly re-opened Empire Diner in New York, follow up with the s’mores torte: toasted marshmallow, semi-sweet chocolate mousse, house made graham crackers, and vanilla ice cream.
