Five Fictional Foods You've Always Wanted To Try

If you're anything like me, there has been at least one time in your life where you've been hungry for that special something... You know, that very unique, delicious, one-of-a-kind food... that doesn't exist. When I was growing up, I wasn't a very picky eater. I ate just about anything, but I always wanted something more.. Something my mom had never made before. And that's when I realized: I've always wanted to experiment with new recipes and new tastes. I've always wanted to try some of the mouthwatering dishes from my favorite childhood television shows and movies. But I mean, how could you not want to try these?



Scooby Snacks - These delicious looking treats (featured on "Scooby-Doo" and its many spin-offs) were used as an incentive for Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Rogers. In "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo", it is revealed that the recipe for Scooby Snacks comes from Sorcerer Snacks, which were renamed after Scooby-Doo once the gang solves the mystery of who was trying to sabotage their production. In "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins", it is revealed that the recipe for Scooby Snacks includes eggs, water, flour, cocoa, sugar, and dog kibble for texture (even though cocoa and chocolate are toxic to dogs!). Unfortunately, the closest thing us humans have ever gotten to this delicious looking treat is baked graham cracker sticks! *sadface*


The Perfect Candy - In an episode of "Jimmy Neutron", Jimmy, Carl and Sheen visit the Candy Bar. Carl and Sheen have trouble deciding whether they would prefer to snack on candy that is salty, sweet, sour, or savory. They discuss creating a candy that incorporates all of their favorite flavors, and of course, Jimmy does it. Beginning with his classmates, the entire town is soon in a frenzy over Jimmy's famous Perfect Candy (which makes the consumer addicted to the candy). This candy caused his friends and family to turn their backs on him, and chase him down with angry mobs. To this day, I just want to know what all of the fuss was about!


Naco - "Taco meets nacho... I call it the naco." - Ron Stoppable, "Kim Possible"

The naco is a combination of nachos and a taco. It was created by Ron Stoppable and has been featured on the menu at Bueno Nacho. It consists of nacho chips and cheese, mixed with the fillings of a taco, placed in a soft tortilla, and lifting up the sides in order to form a bag-like shape. If you enjoy Mexican food but can never decide what to order, this delectable invention just might be the best of both worlds.


The Peruvian Puff Pepper - In an episode of "Drake and Josh," the boys are entering a salsa making competition in order to win a brand-new television for their bedroom. Their devious little sister, Megan, asks if she can join their team, and they reject her. She decides to make her own salsa for the competition, including the extremely rare and expensive (and also illegal!) Peruvian Puff Pepper as one of her ingredients. However, they were unaware that this pepper, found in the jungles of Peru, was illegal, as it caused kidney failure and/or chapped lips. Drake and Josh steal the pepper and use it in their own salsa. At the competition, they are asked to reveal the secret ingredient in their award winning salsa, and when they do, they are disqualified and the brand new television goes to the second place winner... Their little sister Megan. It might be hot, but it must be good if it helped Drake and Josh win first place!


And last but not least...


The Krabby Patty - The Krabby Patty is a beloved burger that is the hottest menu item at the Krusty Krab. It is also the most famous sandwich in Bikini Bottom. The Krabby Patty is made out of a frozen hamburger with fresh lettuce, crisp onions and tomatoes, undersea cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup, and a secret ingredient. Designed by Mr. Krabs in his younger years, fans have been guessing at the secret ingredient for years. What could it be? Crab meat? A secret sauce? The world may never know. But what we do know is that you can't eat too many at once. Why, you ask? Because they'll go straight to your thighs... And then you'll blow up!


Although we have not yet been graced with these mouthwatering recipes, hopefully sometime in the (NEAR) future, we'll be able to finally taste these and many other treats from some of our favorite television shows and movies!

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
