Caprese garlic bread, a can’t miss

Garlic bread and sauce can be a meal in my house. But what do you do to give an upgrade to this basic bread staple? Add melty mozzarella, fresh sliced tomatoes and green basil, of course. Serve as a side with pasta, or eat all on its own.

Chick-fil-A rolling out gluten-free bun, but there’s a catch

Chick-fil-A has gone gluten free! Not entirely, but the nationwide chicken sandwich chain is poised to capitalize on its consumers’ dietary needs with a new menu offering. Chick-fil-A announced on Monday that it will offer gluten-free buns at restaurants nationwide, after reportedly receiving positive feedback from test marketed areas in 2016. The gluten-free bun is made with ancient grains quinoa and amaranth and sweetened with molasses and raisins. “We know our customers are looking for more gluten-sensitive alternatives. They asked, and we listened,” said Leslie Neslage, senior consultant of menu development at Chick-fil-A in a release on the company’s Chicken Wire. “Our hope is that the Gluten-Free Bun addition opens up options for gluten-sensitive customers to enjoy more of our menu.” The new bun can be ordered with any of the restaurant’s sandwiches. But there is one catch. Customers who order the gluten-free buns will have to assemble their sandwiches themselves. According to…

25 Years of Loving Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster

If all of the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits served in one day were stacked up, it would tower the height of the Empire State Building 137 times! We’ve been eating Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster for 25 years now. Surely that calculation would have our biscuit consumption reaching the moon and back. That’s right. For a quarter century we’ve been craving those fresh out-of-the-oven cheddary carb bombs. The mid-range seafood restaurant first starting offering the biscuits in 1992. Originally offered as “freshly baked, hot cheese garlic bread,” the biscuits changed name a few years later to better reflect the other seaside offerings of the restaurant and more accurately describe what they are — I mean, they are definitely biscuits, no? You may remember, they were also originally served to guests waiting to be seated, rather than in a basket table side. The biscuits became so popular, guests requested them…

Mermaid Toast is Instagram’s Latest Trend

Hot on the heels of unicorn toast, aquatic-inspired toast is Instagram’s latest food trend. People are topping toast with watercolor-like spreads in blues and greens and finishing the look with edible gold flakes. Florida-based food stylist Adeline Waugh, @vibrantandpure, was the first to post photos of the trend. She currently has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram waiting for her next decadent creation. To get the dreamy colors, she mixes matcha or algae powders and liquids with almond milk cream cheese or greek-yogurt bases or berry-based jams. Radishes and mandarins sometimes serve as fun, colorful pops. Waugh has recognized it’s not exactly a practical recipe, and she wasn’t trying to create the next food trend but said, “I just like to play around in the kitchen and attempt to create something aesthetically pleasing and unique from time to time.” In reference to how it got its name, Waugh wrote, “not sure…
