Who doesn’t love a delicious homemade chocolate chip cookie?

Supermarkets throw away $2,300 worth of food every day

Remember when Web Watch told you about FOOD EXPIRATION DATES?  All about how you can determine the shelf life of food?

And then we told you that it wasn’t just food that could expire, but that COSMETICS HAVE EXPIRATION DATES too?

Well, you at home aren’t the only people who pay attention to the SELL BY, BEST BY, or USE BY dates that you find on your local supermarket products.

It should come as no surprise that the supermarkets themselves do the exact same thing.  And throwing out all that allegedly “expired” food costs each supermarket, on average, about $2,300.

Who wouldn’t want to live in an edible house?

You wouldn’t have to worry about vacuuming the crumbs up off the floor.  Sleeping would be delightful, on a soft marshmallow cloud.  And repairs would be as easy as mixing up some royal frosting.

But if you really thought about it, building a 2000 square foot sized house entirely out of gingerbread can be a slightly daunting task.  But Web Watch found a site that can make this easier for you.

Top 5 Restaurant Dishes That Should Never Be Served Ever Again

People say that running a bar or restaurant is one of the hardest careers that one can have.  In essence, you’re responsible for your customers’ happiness – which is completely different from being sure you provide good customer service.

People expect their food (or drink) to make them happy and content.  A good meal can bring a level of satisfaction that can only be met by very few other things in this world.  Web Watch will let you choose what those are for you.

Watching Top Chef, Iron Chef, or even the Next Food Network Star pale in comparison to MASTERCHEF, the program that takes “home cooks” and shows that complicated dishes can be made by anyone.
