    Here she is, your Black Iron Burger. I stopped in for lunch today to see what all the fuss was over the $8,000 Keating Miraclean griddle. Apparently, this thing doesn't ever get seasoned, so the first burger cooked on it should taste the same as on...

    What to do with Campbell's Soup

    Campbell's Soup was the lone stock in the S&P 500 that managed to actually increase in value yesterday. Cheap canned goods just seemed like the only good bet. So in the spirit of bunker-building, here's a recipe for making canned tomato soup more...

    Live from Wall Street: Lots of Drinking

    Indian-Pakistani-Spanish-American Food?
