Who doesn't love dessert? An excellent dessert can complement a meal, turn dinner into a special event, or just satisfy your sweet tooth.

Like many cooking shows these days, "The Great British Bake Off" is first and foremost a competition.

TikTok, the world's seventh most popular social media platform, per Oberlo, is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone willing to think out of the box, like one TikToker with their less-than-appetizing recipe. For example, one TikTok user demonstrated watering down ketchup because it has "tons of sugar and lots of red dyes." Surprisingly, despite the unconventional nature of this food hack (to say the least), the clip received over 102,000 likes and 9,202 responses.
For many people, the thought of having more than one pet might be an instant stress-inducer, but not for Martha Stewart. The homemaking queen's massive animal count is well into the double digits and includes far more than the traditional house pets, reportedly leading her to write that she had a small "ark." And before you start questioning if the cookbook author can handle so many critters while also balancing her busy schedule, don't. "I love all my pets, and I take really good care of them," she said during a 2019 interview with Today. "Many of my friends want to come back as my pet," she joked.

While breakfast may not be the most important meal of the day for all Americans, nothing is better than "breakfast foods" for dinner. According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, about 25% of Americans skip the morning meal. Women lead the charge, citing a busy schedule, not being hungry, or running late as explanations, per HuffPost.
