Anatomy of a Recipe, A Cooking Game With Recipe Ingredients Encased In Dominoes


Playing a game of traditional dominoes only rewards you with boring plastic tiles. However, if you play Anatomy of a Recipe, you could win control of dinner.

Created by artist Leonie Anholts, the game plays like regular dominoes, only the tiles are filled with recipe ingredients. The player to use their last tile not only wins bragging rights, but then gets to choose how to use the last ingredient to make dinner for everyone.

Recipe Ingredients In Mid-Air Make Reading Fun


Traditional recipes are great. But sometimes, we just don’t feel like reading, with all those words and all. Visual recipes are where it’s at, and they don’t get much more enjoyable to follow than Recipes by artist Nora Luther.

The photo series depicts a fully-realized meal, deconstructs it, and then sends the ingredients airborne — showing your next meal mid-flight.

Recipes are fun again. And, no reading… yay!

How To Make Your Own Twinkies

So, by now you’ve probably heard… Hostess is broke, leaving an uncertain future for its line of beloved snack cakes. However, before you start hoarding boxes of Twinkies… Why not consider making your own brand of the yellowish creme-filled sponge cake at home?

Sure, the recipe by Instructables member scoochmaroo won’t have all of those twelve-syllable ingredients from the Hostess version. And, unlike the now defunct Twinkie, your homemade version probably won’t survive a nuclear holocaust. However, they will be oblong, yellow, and have convenient creme holes. So, you’ll never have to wonder how they got the filling in there — since you’ll be doing the honors yourself. Recipe here.
