Batch of Blood

Blood, guts, and gore are trademarks of most horror movies and Halloween costumes. But bad fake blood can ruin even the goriest costume. A visit to the costume shop might solve the problem, but with these simple tools, anyone can create scream-worthy innards.

With all the lonely hearts grumbling about the impending onslaught of sickly sweet Valentine’s schmaltz, ponder this: is romance dead? Before the Valentine’s Grinch that dwells in the recesses of your soul comes out and grabs the nearest bottle of liquor, rest assured that you’re not alone; the dating situation at McGill is more dire than delicious for many.

Three-ingredient peanut butter cookies

My peanut butter cookie repertoire used to consist of delicious, crispy cookies made from a recipe handed down from my grandmother. But they had nine ingredients in them, and who has that kind of time? These cookies have only three ingredients in them, and while they come with a little less childhood nostalgia, they are unbelievably delicious.

Custom cold-brewed coffee

There are two ways to make cold coffee: normal coffee that's been cooled, and cold-brewed coffee. The second is far more delicious and satisfying. There is a notable difference between letting hot coffee cool off and cold brewing it specifically. Cold-brewed coffee is less acidic and bitter, and a lot more flavourful-particularly if you've been using ice cubes to cool down regular coffee instead.

A tale of two hamburgers

For many people, hamburgers bring to mind bad cafeteria food and mystery meat. But two restaurants are redefining hamburgers, or at least getting back to the good old days. M:brgr, on Drummond and de Maisonneuve - best classified as diner-chic, with gleaming white tables and ketchup squirt bottles - serves up custom, gourmet hamburgers, spiked milkshakes, and other glamorized versions of hamburger joint classics.

Perfect pitch: Fight Band looks to fine-tune McGill athletic pride

The McGill Fight Band doesn't march. They don't do halftime shows, they don't wear Napoleonic uniforms, and they don't have a dance team. If you're looking for high-stepping, capes, or colour guards, you're out of luck. But if you're looking for spirit, look no further - the growing Fight Band does what fight bands are supposed to do and does it well.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Spring Basil Salad

A few weeks ago, I ran a workshop at Nuit Blanche. We talked about a great assortment of food facts, including a demonstration of a brilliant tool: foodpairing.be, which generates incredible (and often unexpected) flavour matches. This can be useful for writing new recipes and coming up with innovative dishes.

The recession’s gaming revolution

As midterms finish up and with finals looming on the horizon, it's your last chance to procrastinate. Many college students are hooked on video games, but most games aren't friendly to a student budget. With the recession, however, the market is changing, and there are hundreds of high quality games available free of charge.

A weekend in Munich

I should know better than to order anything off a German menu when the only German phrase I know is "beer, please." Clearly this wasn't the case after I found myself at the Haufbrauhaus in Munich, staring down at a plate of something that looked more or less like pig ankle (although I imagine it could have been an elbow or knee).
