At the very least, I'm still alive to write about it.
By now surely you've heard the news that Taco Bell is launching a breakfast menu. It officially rolls out Thursday March 27th, but at least at my local Taco Bell it's in a "friends and family" test phase where you can try one of the breakfast choices for free. I took their waffle taco for a test drive and lived to tell about it.Read More
Huevos rancheros is a delicious breakfast, but it's never made me feel like taking down Red Skull. Thankfully, Chris-Rachel Oseland from The Kitchen Overlord worked up a recipe for "Captain America's Breakfast S.H.I.E.L.D Mark II" which is a variant on huevos rancheros that ends up looking like Captain America's iconic shield. It doesn't even require any vibranium, although you do have to make a blue egg.Read More

When you think "breakfast," you can now start thinking "Taco Bell," as the fast food chain is trying their hand at the early morning meal everyone age fifteen t0 thirty skips in favor of sleeping an extra few minutes. Considering the usual repertoire of items on offer at Taco Bell, one wouldn't be too surprised to find out most of their breakfast offerings are of the breakfast burrito variety. The new breakfast menu, dubbed "FirstMeal," was introduced today at over 800 of Taco Bell's locations across Western states.Read More
In a match made in domestic heaven, the robots TUM-James and TUM-Rosie have been used to successfully prepare traditional Bavarian breakfast called Weisswurst Frühstück, made of sausage and bread. The robots have previously been used to make more commonplace pancakes. Their skills in the kitchen undoubtedly make them masters of the first meal of the day.
James is a PR2 robot. He was built by the U.S. robotics firm Willow Garage, and brought to Germany as part of the PR2Beta Program, which seeks to popularize personal robots. At the Technical University Munich (TUM), James began working alongside Rosie, which is a dual-arm robot. The machines have several similarities in design and operation: they both run Robot Operating Systems (ROS), use Hokuyo laser scanners and Kinect 3D sensors, and have omnidirectional mobile bases.
But despite their similarities each robot performs their own specific tasks in the kitchen. Led by Dr. Michael Beets and Dr. Bernd Radig from the IAS group at TUM, the James robot goes shopping for items needed to make the meal, in addition to slicing a baguette to accompany the sausages that Rosie boils and serves.Read More
The American breakfast: full of pastries, fruit, various fried meats, eggs. Just look at those eggs benedict on Canadian bacon; that, friends, is perfection. Boy, it all looks so beautiful laid out like that on clean white linen. I can't wait to dig in! Be shame if something happ- No. NO. (by Bruton Stroube Studios via Tasteologie) Read More
Sculptor Brian Stuckey shows us all just how important breakfast cereal mascots are with this sculpture. The scene took him over three months to build, and he points out that the table is over thirty-eight inches long, which means the scene doesn't exactly fit inside a shoebox.
