<![CDATA[This Flamin' Hot Turkey Will Spice Up Your Thanksgiving]]> Fri, 17 Nov 2017 11:17:38 -0500 https://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/Cheetos+Turkey.jpg

We've heard of deep-fried turkey, smoked turkey and there are even online tutorials on how to microwave a turkey, but a Flamin' Hot Cheetos turkey? That's a new one.

Reynolds Kitchens has posted the recipe for this crazy concoction online and says there are just seven steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place hot puffed cheese sticks in a food processor and process until fully crushed. You can also add to a zip top bag and roll with a rolling pin until sticks are completely crushed.
  3. Brush oil or butter on turkey and coat with the crushed chips. (Beware of Cheetos stains!) 
  4. Add 1 tsp of flour to the Reynolds® Oven Bag and place in a large roasting pan that is at least 2 inches deep.
  5. Carefully slide turkey into the oven bag, making sure the opening of the bag is facing the end of the roasting pan, and not facing up. The bag should be inside the pan, not hanging over the edges of the pan.
  6. Close oven bag with the included nylon tie, and cut six 1/2 inch slits in the top of the bag
  7. When your turkey reaches an internal temperature of 180°F in thickest part of the thigh, not touching the bone, remove from oven and let stand in oven bag for another 15 minutes. Cut open the top of the bag and carefully remove turkey from the bag, and place onto a cutting board. Lifting works well by inserting one carving fork into each end of the turkey.

In the end you'll have a bright red bird ready to pair with all of your classic Thanksgiving fixings and a fiery stain on your tongue.

If hot Cheetos aren't your thing, Reynolds says you can also mimic the crusted turkey effect with Cool Ranch Doritos or Funyuns.

<![CDATA[Top 10 Black Friday Retailers Revealed (And Traps to Avoid)]]> Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:17:34 -0500 https://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-453488546.jpg

Black Friday is nearly upon us, and holiday shoppers everywhere are no doubt twitchy with anticipation. But how best to focus one's efforts amid the mania? 

WalletHub surveyed nearly 10,000 deals from 35 of the biggest U.S. retailers’ 2017 Black Friday ad scans to identify the stores offering the biggest discounts in various product categories such as appliances, jewelry and toys. 

The overall average discount for Black Friday is 37 percent, the personal finance website found, so consumers are advised to target that as a threshold in order to avoid Black Friday traps. 

Here are the Top 10 Black Friday retailers, based on average percent discount, according to WalletHub: 

  • Kohl's (66.32%)
  • JCPenney (66.30%)
  • Belk (62.75%)
  • Stage (60.82%)
  • Shopko (55.93%)
  • Bealls Florida (52.78%)
  • Sears (50.09%)
  • Macy's (45.58%)
  • Fred Meyer (43.88%)
  • AAFES (37.25%) 

[[450085703, C]]

Among the top 10, Kohl's saw the biggest percentage jump over last year's average discount, from 58.1 percent to 66.3 percent, while Macy's saw the biggest decline, averaging a 45.6 percent discount this season compared with 63.4 percent last year, WalletHub found. 

The best deals fell within the "apparel and accessories" category, which had discounts on 28 percent of all offers, whereas only 1.62 percent of the "consumer packaged goods" category had discounts. "Computers & phones" came in second, followed by "appliances."

A popular snack food brand is publishing cryptic hints that it could be eliminating one of its treats from store shelves.

Tennessee-based Little Debbie's social media team tweeted Wednesday a photo of four desert cakes — Christmas Tree cakes, Oatmeal Creme Pies, Honey Buns and Nutty Buddy bars — with the caption, "one gotta go forever..."


The post quickly gained thousands of comments, with people offering rather passionate opinions on which cake should be axed.


The next day, a second tweet followed up, "We didn't say it would be easy."


McKee Foods, Little Debbie's parent company, hasn't offered an announcement and has not yet said how a decision would be made.

You can actually have breakfast at Tiffany's. 

The luxury jeweler introduced its "first ever retail dining concept," called The Blue Box Cafe, last week as it unveiled a fourth-floor renovation of its Fifth Avenue flagship store in Manhattan. 

Decked out in the famed Tiffany blue, the new cafe features a simple menu -- subject to change throughout the seasons -- of American classics made with regionally sourced ingredients and "reinvented to be uniquely Tiffany," the jeweler said. 

For breakfast, diners can enjoy coffee and croissant for $29, served along with a choice of avocado toast, truffled eggs, buttermilk waffle or a smoked salmon bagel. Lunch is a flat $39 fee and includes an appetizer and sandwich- or salad-style entree. 

Vanity Fair described it as feeling as if you're dining inside one of Tiffany's iconic blue boxes. The cafe will be open during regular business hours. Eater published the full menu. 

The redesigned fourth floor also houses Tiffany's new Home & Accessories collection, as well as a baby boutique, a fragrance laboratory and more. 

"Both the café and redesign of the Home & Accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience,” Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer, Tiffany & Co., said in a statement. “The space is experimental and experiential – a window into the new Tiffany.”

It's the end of an era for Disney California Adventure as the Anaheim park says farewell to its coaster California Screamin' to make way for a Pixar-themed ride, the park announced Thursday.

That means shutting down the popular coaster, as well as other attractions, in order to make the changes.

The "Incredicoaster," and "Incredibles" themed ride, is part of a transformation of Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier, according to the Disney Parks Blog.

There will also be four new "imaginative neighborhoods," new entertainment, foods, drinks and stuff to buy.

The Pixar-specific village will debut during Pixar Fest, and event that kicks off April 13, 2018.

The revamping of the coaster comes just ahead of "The Incredibles 2" hitting theaters in June 2018.

The Incredicoaster will feature new special effects, music, and new scenes.

But wait - there's more. Buzz and Woody fans can start getting excited as well. One of the four new "neighborhoods" at the park will be "Toy Story Mania!"

An "Inside Out" neighborhood will also have Disney fanatics jumping for "Joy."

In preparation for all the big changes, California Screamin', along with Mickey's Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk and Sideshow Shirts, will close Jan. 8.

"Little Mermaid" fans also have to say goodbye to Ariel's Grotto restaurant as well as the Cove Bar on Jan. 8. They'll be transformed into a Pixar lounge.

But those aren't the only changes.

Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumping Jellyfish, Goofy's Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure will all be revamped into the new village called Paradise Park.

A new smartphone wants to raise the level of mobile gaming with a bolder display and more power. The Razer Phone, an Android smartphone, boasts a 120Hz display and a large battery to keep users energized for hours of use and gaming.

The new device has a UltraMotion display with a refresh rate that is double most other smartphones. The 5.72-inch LCD screen is designed for no lag or stuttering while producing clear and colorful images.

The phone has an aluminum body and is powered by Android Nougat with 8GB of RAM. While it contains a 4,000 mAh battery, it also remains cool to the touch, thanks to internal thermal diffusers.

But the Razer Phone is designed to be a video and gaming device. Dual rear 12 megapixel cameras provide amazing images at nearly any distance. Dolby Atmos brings cinematic audio through two front speakers with dedicated amplifiers.

But what about the games?

Razer is partnering with Square Enix, Tencent and others to provide exciting and competitive gaming to smartphones. “Arena of Valor,” a multiplayer online battle arena, will let players battle each other in team fights.

"The future of gaming is rapidly expanding to mobile devices, and both Razer and Tencent are at the forefront of fast-tracking development," said Vincent Gao, global marketing director at Tencent Games. "Arena of Valor brings gamers a fast-paced, competitive experience, and the Razer phone was built to handle the visuals, sound and quick-reflex mechanics of the game."

Other popular titles include “Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition,” “Tekken,” “World of Tanks Blitz,” and “Titanfall: Assault.” The games are being optimized for the Razer Phone to run from 60 frames per second up to 120 frames per second, keeping the action clean and responsive.

The phone will be priced at $699.99 in the United States, and preorders begin on Nov. 1. The phone will go on sale at Razerzone.com, select Microsoft Stores, and Amazon.com on Nov. 17.

Samuel Adams just released a new limited-edition beer (at $199 per bottle) with an alcohol content so high, it is illegal to sell in 12 states.

The Boston brewery announced the beer called Utopias would be released to stores in early November.

Only 13,000 bottles of Utopias, a beer with an alcohol content of 28 percent, more than 10 percent above the legal limit of some states, will be distributed in the entire country -- minus the dozen states where it's illegal.

You won't be able to find it in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont or Washington, where state liquor laws bar it from being available for sale.

Interested? The brewery describes the beverage as "reminiscent of a rich vintage Port, old Cognac, or fine Sherry with notes of dark fruit, subtle sweetness, and a deep rich malty smoothness."

A New Jersey restaurant owner is taking on some heavy competition on Guy Fieri’s new Food Network show.

Dariany Santana of Kenilworth has been selected to compete on Fieri’s “Guy’s Big Project,” a new reality competition series that is bringing on contestants to pitch ideas for food travel shows, according to NJ.com. The winner will have their pitch made into a series for Food Network.

Santana and her father opened Cha Cha Cha Cuban Café last year leading her to her pitch on the new show. She was chosen ahead of thousands of other entries, NJ.com reports. She wanted to travel around the country to visit family-owned restaurants and inspire others to open family-owned businesses.

"I would love to be like a female Anthony Bourdain-Guy Fieri meets Ellen DeGeneres," Santana told NJ Advance Media.

The show is a six-episode journey that documents the development of each hopeful’s initial pitch, the Food Network says on its website. “Guy’s Big Project” airs Nov. 5, according to a post from Fieri’s verified Instagram account.
