    Potato lovers are in for a very special treat. Putting a twist on the classic, this latest recipe is a fun change of pace from regular baked potatoes.

    YouTube user Weelicious demonstrates how to make Yukon Gold Potato Fans and shows you just how simple they are to prepare. This is a fun treat for both kids and adults alike. This might be one of the simplest recipes out there; plus, it’s so fun to eat!

    All you need is:

    4 medium Yukon gold potatoes (russet potatoes will also work)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon butter, melted
    1 teaspoon salt
    To prepare:

    Preheat oven to 475° F.
    Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato so they lay flat.
    Using a knife make about 20 slices ( ¼-inch deep) lengthwise from end to end across the tops of the potatoes, making sure not to cut all the way through. Leave about a half an inch on the bottom of the potato un-cut.
    Mix the butter and oil in a bowl.
    Place the potatoes on a baking sheet, brush with half of the olive oil/ butter mixture, sprinkle with salt and bake for 30 minutes.
    Brush the potatoes with the remaining oil/butter mixture and cook for an additional 45 minutes or until skin is golden and serve.

    Ah, Valentine’s Day… That one day of the year that everybody loves, right? It’s just filled with hearts and roses and unicorns and happiness everywhere! Wait, what’s that? Oh, right… the people that aren’t in relationships don’t really like Valentine’s Day that much? Hmm… So maybe not everybody loves Valentine’s Day quite as much as those people in the heart-filled embrace of another, but that’s okay. We can all celebrate the day with yummy goodness!

    In this great video tutorial by Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio, the YouTube food genius demonstrates how to make a beautiful heart-shaped cake topped with scrumptious roses without the need for a special cake mold. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but it also looks downright delicious!

    To make the heart-shaped cake, you only need a few ingredients to get started. You’ll need to pre-make two cakes: one 8-inch round cake and one 8-inch square cake. You’ll also need some white buttercream, two pounds of fresh strawberries, and a piping bag with specific tips.

    Next, you’re going to set your square cake on your cake board or plate and then you’ll cut your round cake into two equal halves. Take one half and place it on the side of the square cake and the other half on the adjacent side to create your square shape. Easy peasy!

    Then all you have to do is cover your cake in buttercream and smooth it out so that the entire layer is even. Pop it in the freezer to set for 15 minutes. When you take it out, you’ll use your piping bag to add the side and edge decorations (watch the video for the exact technique).

    Once the decorations are done, make sure you’ve washed your strawberries, cut the tops off, and dried them thoroughly. Then, you’ll just fill the top of the cake with the strawberries, placing the stem side down so they’re pointing up.

    And that’s it, folks! You now have yourself a beautiful and delicious heart-shaped cake (made with no special mold or pan) to give to the love of your life!

    He Rolls Beef And Cheese Into Bacon. The Result? I Can’t Stop DROOLING!

    Humans were bestowed with many earthly delights — like fire, the wheel, and bacon.

    Bacon is delicious and, despite popular belief, it is also nutritious…for our souls. What would we be as a people without bacon? I’ll tell you — hungry. Or hangry. The result of being both hungry and angry, because without the existence of bacon we’d have a pit of intangible sorrows bubbling deep within our beings, because although we can’t explain why, life just feels void of true flavor. And goodness. And, let’s face it, true happiness.

    Bacon is the BFF of eggs and pancakes, it belongs wrapped around any fig, and whoever decided to start using bacon as a garnish on cupcakes is a genius. Sweet and porky? Oink, oink, baby. Give me a piece of that!

    Despite all of the aforementioned brilliant bacon combinations I described, the bacon invention, or rather bacon-vention, shown in the video below is simply astounding. I was salivating about a minute into this video. I mean bacon, beef, cheese, and barbecue sauce? Hello, Heaven? You cannot have your main dish back. Not now. Not when us mere mortals have finally discovered it.

    Watch the video below and try this simple, delicious recipe, which is sure to be the piggy emperor of any potluck.

    Please SHARE it with everyone you know, because hey, if you do, maybe everyone will bring it to your next party — and who doesn’t want endless amounts of this scrumptious treat?

    Everybody loves a good food hack. YouTube has made not only getting new recipes a breeze, but also made it possible to actually watch (and cook along) as both amateur and professional chefs make the super yummiest treats. This just proves, once again, that the internet is awesome.

    Thanks to popular YouTube chef Nicko’s Kitchen, for instance, we now have a way to make ice cream even more delicious. As if that were even possible, right?

    In this video, we watch as Nicko takes us through a great ice cream recipe that he actually incorporates Coca-Cola into. It’s super easy and seems to be really tasty as well.

    Nicko begins by pouring cream, milk, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean paste into a large bowl before adding in a cup of Coca-Cola. He stirs up the ingredients to give them a gentle mix before pouring it all into a pre-frozen container that will go into his ice cream maker.

    If you have an ice cream maker, you’ll just need to turn it on to churn, let it set and you’re good to go. But don’t fret if you don’t have an ice cream machine. Nicko gives you a very simple solution to making the Coca-Cola Ice Cream without needing to have a special piece of equipment.

    I don’t know about you, but we’re definitely trying this next time we make some ice cream. It looks really yummy and with the addition of the soda to the mix, there’s no need for additional sugar.

    Many parts of the world are caught in the middle of winter right now and can definitely feel the effects of the bitter cold!

    While some folks only want to hide inside in their warm homes, others succumb to cabin fever and can’t wait to have some fun outside…no matter how painful the cold is!

    The people who created this next video, on the other hand, decided to put some real thought into their cold weather fun. What they did here is truly genius and had me wondering…why didn’t I think of this?!

    Have you ever wondered what happens to boiling water in freezing cold temperatures? These guys put it to the test, but decided to do it safely by putting the boiling water inside a water gun to see what would happen.

    When they squirted the gun off their porch in Northern Ontario, Canada, where the temperature was a deadly -42 degrees, the boiling water instantly freezes, creating pure magic in the air.
