WTF, Really? Recipe of the Day

I really don't waste much thought energy on the Food Network, but this one is just too good to pass up. Thanks again for being such easy targets.

More after the jump!

From now on, I'm putting up recipes for things like onion- soup dip. It's seasonal eats, you know, since Superbowl is right around the corner. Weekly editors: We really need to sit down and talk about a raise for the personal recipes that Dave and I write here.

My favorite recipe is the Serious Eats recipe for Boiling Water. Although it is tongue in cheek, whereas this one appears to be a cop out.

I agree with just about everyone on this site regarding Food Network.

Does anyone watch the Cooking Channel? I think its great. Its a super premium channel with Dish Network, but standard programming with DirectTV. Its actually one of the major reasons I am switching to DirecTV. I think it encompasses all the things all of you guys used to enjoy with the old Food Network and PBS shows.

It's standard-def in the "normal" tier of U-Verse, too. It needs more content, though. I was excited about French, Chinese and Indian cookery shows but they run the same half-dozen or dozen episodes over and over and over and over again... and their 30-minute cuts of Julia Child's hour-long show make me want to rise up in rebellion.

Coming soon to "Cooking!" on Stick A Fork In It: microwave popcorn.

I consider myself something of an expert on the topic, because I've made this dish hundreds of times (literally). Do be careful when increasing the recipe -- the ingredients don't scale exactly. Rule of thumb: for two servings, use 15 oz. of chocolate; for three, use five pounds, etc.

Ok, then what? There's no instructions or anything.

"Ok, then what? There's no instructions or anything."

Unlike most recipes, for this dish you begin executing the instructions before gathering the ingredients. If memory serves:

(1) Enjoy a fine meal at a good restaurant with companions of your choosing. Have dessert, of course.

(2) Stop at Strickland's or similar place for a late snack on the way home.

Ingredients- 1 ounce dark chocolate

(3) Once home: pop chocolate into mouth. Masticate. (Again: to double the recipe, e.g., tradition requires that you use 15 ounces.)

This is from Food Network Humor. You should really credit the proper sources. LAME.

OK, Professor, I'd like to add chips to go along with your onion soup dip. Wow, this specifically states Dark Chocolate so don't even bother with milk chocolate that weigh more than an ounce. I may need help -- where are my cookbooks when I need them for grub like this? Hmmm, eenie, meenie, miney, mo, which brand should I buy to make this delicious snack?

Have a nice weekend... Got a chuckle out of this.
