Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, says the key to a man’s heart, and other parts, is pumpkin pie. Out of the 40 odors tested in Hirsch’s study, a mixture of lavender and pumpkin pie got the biggest rise out of men ages 18 to 64. That particular fragrance was found to increase penile blood flow by an average of 40%. “Maybe the odors acted to reduce anxiety. By reducing anxiety, it acted to remove inhibitions,” said Hirsch.
FTA: “Every odor we tested aroused the participants,” said Hirsch. … “Nothing turns a man off.”
The Editors at Foodenator had the opportunity to check out some pizza in Midtown West, Manhattan recently. After searching the internet for a tasty piece of New York Pizza, we decided to check out Il Mare, located right by Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.
You can choose to purchase your pizza by the pie or by the slice and there are a variety of flavors to choose from as well. We decided to try the traditional slice of Cheese Pizza and a slice of the Tomato Basil.
First we tried the Cheese Pizza. The first bite was literally heaven in our mouth. There was a perfect amount of each ingredient and it almost melted. The crust is thinner and by the time you get to the end you just want to grab another slice before finishing the crust because the toppings are so good. The sauce used on the pizza is a little too sweet which was our only regret with the pizza.
The Tomato Basil pizza was also very good. They use several different kinds of cheese on the pizza including a fresh mozzarella. We liked that we had a variety of choices by the slice and the staff was very fast and efficient. The prices are very reasonable and you can be in and out of the restaurant in about 15 minutes.
Overall, we give Il Mare 4 out of 5 stars!! Work a trip to Penn Station to check out their pizza.
We just got werd that Procter and Gamble is recalling some of its sexiest Pringle flavors ever: “Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger” and “Family Faves Taco Night” are both GONERS. The reason is due to tainted nasty HPV – (not Human Papaloma Virus) Salmonella-tainted hydrolyzed vegetable protein.
The tainting is causing grief for other companies too – Nestle Professional North America just recalled for about 6,000 pounds (3 TONS, approximately 24.5 pigs-worth) of ready-to-eat bacon, and Ruiz Foods is recalling ready-to-eat beef, whatever the hell that is.
For more info on the awful Pringle situation, watch this video, yo.

Under a new law against animal abuse in China, individuals in caught eating either cat or dog meat could face a fine of 5,000 yuan (approximately $735) or up to 15 days in prison. Businesses involved in the practice could be fined up to 500,000 yuan (or $7,325), according to the Times Online.
The draft going to Parliament in April would be first law against animal abuse by a new, increasingly animal-loving Chinese society that no longer has the taste for canine and feline meat.
Dog meat appeared in Chinese cuisine as early as the third century B.C. and is long believed to provide warmth to those who eat it. Restaurants offering dog — or “fragrant meat” as it’s often poetically referred to — appear throughout the entire nation. Its “warming” property makes it particularly popular in winter stews and the frigid northeastern region of China.
Cat meat, however, is primarily consumed by the people of the southern Guangdong province. Cat is not as popular because of an old superstition that the feline will come back at night to retaliate.
Waking up to a vengeful minx? No thanks. We’ll leave the tail-wagging eating to Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain.

You are going to be a fat slob and eat everything, we know. But the key here is MODERATION.
Keeping things in moderation is a major key to the Christmas overeating issue. It is easy to say “eat and drink in moderation”, but not quiet so easy to carry out so here are some ideas for moderating what you eat this festive season.
- Use a smaller plate ~ your mind will consider it a full plate regardless of its size!
- Where there are choices, take a little of many things rather than lots of one thing. This ensures you are getting a balanced meal and not overloading on a fatty food.
- For every glass of alcohol or soft drink, have a glass of water. Water fills you up, has no calories or side effects, is cheap and will help wash out the excesses.
- Help clear the table as soon as everyone finished eating rather than sitting and picking at leftovers.
- Make your own mixed drinks with real fruit juice instead of canned drink.
- Don’t be afraid to take things home for later – especially fruit cake as it will keep for ages!
- Only put out some of the available food so people don’t over serve themselves. More can always come out as required.
