Olympics 2012: Opening Ceremony Party Menu

  As the Opening Night Ceremony of the Summer 2012 Olympic Games approaches, I’m looking forward to the international spectacle with increasing enthusiasm. Allegedly, this little shindig to celebrate the cultures of the world will cost roughly $42,000,000. (In case you’re wondering like we were, that’s enough to buy approximately 168 million Twinkies.)

Scottish Food for Disney’s “Brave”

  Disney’s newest animated feature Brave chronicles the life of a Scottish young archer with flowing red hair named Merida.
