    There are times I would like to make the effort of throwing dinner for friends or family and cook everything from scratch. But the labor of love just takes so long. In spite of all the inspiration from Rachael Ray, the 30-minute meal is actually more myth than fact. Thawing your food alone may take almost an hour. Then there’s the diligence of slow cooking the meat to your desired tenderness. Not to mention the many times you will have to change pots and pans, as the vegetables, which cook faster, have to be cooked much later than the meat—you...

    The horrific death of Jose Melena of Wilmington occurred Oct. 11, 2012, when he entered a 35-foot cylindrical oven and became inadvertently trapped when coworkers loaded 12,000 pounds of canned tuna into the oven. Workers did not know Melena was inside, according to the DA’s office. During the two-hour heat sterilization process, the oven’s internal temperature rose to about 270 degrees, the DA’s office had previously said. Melena’s severely burned remains were discovered by a coworker. His family will get $1.5 million of the $6 million settlement payout. Under the plea agreement, San Diego-based Bumble Bee will also be required...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush called out fellow GOP contender Mike Huckabee for saying President Barack Obama was marching Israelis to “the door of the oven” with the Iran deal, calling his comments “unfortunate” and “just wrong.” “The Iran deal is horrific, and it creates far more dangers and problems than it solves,” Bush said at an event in an Orlando church. “But I think we need to tone down the rhetoric for sure.” “Look, I’ve been to Israel not as many times as Mike Huckabee, who I respect,” he said. “But the use of that kind of language, it’s...

    For two Harvard University undergrads, what began as "an excuse to eat a lot of cake" may turn into the invention of a lifetime. John McCallum, a 20-year-old from Louisiana, was daydreaming about cake his freshman year during his “Science of Cooking” class when he happened to see someone spraying whipped cream and thought to himself, why not spray cake? Is that possible? He and his girlfriend and fellow student Brooke Nowakowski went on to prove that it is, winning first place and $10,000 in the 2014 Harvard Innovation challenge, reports ABC News. Their "Spray Cake" involves spraying cake batter...

    PALM SPRINGS — A man died Tuesday after he was crushed by a tortilla oven behind an out-of-business supermarket. The man was part of a three-person crew attempting to load the 3,000-pound commercial oven onto a truck when it fell off a manual forklift, said Palm Springs Lt. Sal Abruscato. "We do not suspect any foul play at all," Abruscato said. "This is a horrible accident." The oven was one of many items auctioned off at the supermarket Monday, he said. The person who bought it hired the crew to deliver it.

    RAMAPO, N.Y. (CBS) ― Police arrested a 26-year-old woman Friday, claiming she abused her 7-year-old son by sticking him in the oven and turning it on as a form of punishment. The arrest stems from two separate incidents in 2007 when the child appeared to have suffered numerous injuries. The first incident occurred last July when the boy arrived at a daycare center where police say owner Joelle Lherisson noticed the boy had burns to his arm, hand, nose, and left leg. Lherisson, 37, however, failed to report the boy's condition to Child Protective Services or police, as required by...

    Wurtsboro - Maybe the oven is not the best way to dry out your stash. Police say a Wurtsboro Hills man learned this the hard way over the weekend.

They discovered that the fire had started in the kitchen stove – and they found the wad of pot, more than a pound of it, inside the oven.

Scientists also have discovered that the soldiers also appear to have gone to the lavatory in pairs. Further analysis of the 2,000-year old remains of the legionnaires’ breakfasts may produce more clues to the diet and eating habits of the troops led by Gnaeus Agricola. They forced their way to the north of Scotland and victory over Caledonian tribesmen at the battle of Mons Graupius in 84 AD. But...
