From bodybuilders to soccer moms, egg whites are a great healthy breakfast choice. But separating the yolk from the whites can seem like pulling a rabbit from a hat. Enter Quirky’s Pluck, the yolk extractor you’ll have to see to believe. Simply place it over the yolk of an already cracked egg, squeeze the silicone chamber, and release to suck the egg yolk up into it. To dispose of its contents, just give Pluck another squeeze and move onto the next egg. When finished, separate the two pieces and wash by hand or in the dishwasher.

PINTEREST RECIPE OF THE WEEK:

Cheesy Crack Bread

Alotta’s Pinterest

I found this recipe on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try it. Alotta is all about simple recipes that are fucking incredibly tasty at the same time.

What you need:

Cookie sheet

Aluminum foil

1 Large loaf of sourdough bread, round preferable

Mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese (get enough to fill the cracks you make in the bread to your liking)

Bacon

1/2 a cup of butter (or more depending on loaf)

1 Tbsp of ranch dressing miss (increase if you use more than suggested amount of butter

Preheat oven to 350

Take the cookie sheet and pull out two long strips of aluminum foil. Make a + sign with them on top of the cookie sheet and place bread in the middle

Cut the bread long ways and short ways creating a checkerboard crisscross pattern throughout. DO NOT cut the bread all the way down to the plate, leaving the bottom intact so the entire loaf doesn’t fall apart. 

Fry up your bacan. making it SUPER crispy and chop/crack up into bits. I would say about half a package should do it but if you REALLY love bacon go balls to the wall.

Before doing anything else pull the aluminum foils around the bread leaving some more on top to completely encase the bread later.

Thinly slice your cheese and put in between the cracks of the bread. Pour and shove bacon in there as well.

Melt the butter in a pan on low heat stirring in the ranch mix when its completely melted. Use the suggested amount above or increase amount slightly for larger loafs of bread.

Pour evenly throughout loaf, soaking as much of the inner bread, cheese and bacon. Close the top flaps of foil encasing the bread. Bake for 15 minutes then unwrap and bake for an additional 10 until loaf is crispy and cheese is melted.

Remove from oven.

SHOVE YOUR FACE FULL OF IT.

reminder: be aware that although citrus fruit is very acidic, you should wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth in order to protect your enamel. the reason for waiting is to allow time for your saliva to neutralize the pH in your mouth, which prevents enamel softening and decay when brushed later. read more about it here. also, do not consume the seeds of any citrus fruits.

RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK:
SUSHI VILLAGE
Bayside, NY & Huntington, NY

BAYSIDE LOCATION-
If you go anywhere, ANYWHERE for sushi… go here. It is SUPER cheap and has a buffet style menu. Which means upon your arrival you are given two menus, one of which has sushi options and the other chinese/japanese dish options. you simply mark off how much of each roll or dish you want and they bring it to you. after you’re finished with your choices. YOU DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. I’m talking as many sushi rolls, teriyaki tofus and dumplings that you can handle. Best item by far in this place is the spicy seaweed salad. I tried to get a pic but I kept eating it before I remembered to break out the camera. You would think that this is one of those places that sacrifice the quality of the food in order to meet the demand of the customer but that is NOT the case. Where it does fall MAJORLY short is the service. Sometimes you will not receive portions of your order, wait for a fork for a half an hour and etc. But really, your getting all you can eat. If something doesn’t come out, order the next round. 
AVOID THE HUNTINGTON LOCATION LIKE THE PLAGUE-
They just opened this location and I was super excited. I usually go to the Bayside location about once a week no joke. I went there with a friend expecting awesomeness and I was sadly disappointed. Waited for OVER AN HOUR for our food. We tried to explain several times to our waitress our food was not being brought to our table. She just telling us “it takes time”. While waiting, we witnessed three other table sit down after us and start to receive food off the menu that we ordered as well. Obviously, someone did not put in our order. We filled out both the sushi menu and the entree menu 3x and only received one of our orders of sushi. After about an hour of watching poeple sit down before us, eat before us, and leave before us, I had had enough. Upon my declaration to our server we were not paying and leaving, she claimed we still owed her for the amount of sushi we ate. NONO bitch. I came for ALL YOU CAN EAT sushi. Not WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE FEEDING US sushi. That’s like ordering a 3 course meal and them bringing out a dessert and asking for full payment of the meal. I think not. I asked to see the manager, she looked around and claimed she was the manager. Really bitch? I happen to be so lucky to have the manager waiting on me herself? I THINK NOT. I saw a man in a suit walking around in the kitchen as I previously went to the bathroom and yet YOU claim to be the manager? YOU, who is unapologetic with the fact that I am dissatisfied with your service? YOU, which has brought me no food? YOU, who claim to be the owner but are weighting on my table with a man in a suit walking around in the kitchen? Who’s HE? The WINDOW-WASHER?
and YOU, the one now yelling at me that I need to pay? I finally just got up and walked away and she SCREAMED at ME the CUSTOMER: I’m calling 911! Yea bitch. Call 911 and try to get them to come here for unpaid sushi, try to convey, over the phone, the situation going on right here. Cause I have been trying to explain to you, and you don’t understand a word I’m saying. AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE AND GO TO THE ONE IN BAYSIDE.
