She’s conquered the music charts, the beauty industry, and now, Selena Gomez is taking on the kitchen. The 27-year-old singer is set to executive produce and star in a her own at-home cooking show on HBO Max, and it’s guaranteed to take all of our cooking skills to the next level. The unscripted show, which doesn’t have a title yet, will debut later this summer and include 10 episodes on the new streaming service. Each episode will feature Selena and a different master chef (remotely, of course) taking on recipes of all cuisines. The series will also highlight food-related charities.

While we all navigate this unique time at home, which has equated to a lot of

College athletes get cooking classes, grocery tips

Nevada offensive lineman Nate Brown is doing his best to eat right, like many football players and other college athletes scattered around the country without access to training facilities amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound rising senior has stumbled a few times in college sports’ version of Weight Watchers, with no in-person classes or spring practices.

“Maybe I would get Taco Bell because I do like Taco Bell,” Brown said. “Or maybe I’ll have ice cream later at night. … The meals that are maybe not super-nutritious, I’ve been trying to keep that to one a day.”

Athletes have been displaced from facilities with well-stocked training tables and easy access to healthy snacks and protein shakes. Some are home with family members, while others are largely on their own in off-campus residences.

To help them, schools have provided care packages, grocery tips, recipes and even cooking demonstrations on social

This Waffle Maker Creates 3D Cars and Trucks, So It’s Acceptable to Play With Your Food

As if kids didn’t already reach for food with their fingers enough, it’ll be nearly impossible to stop them when their breakfast is shaped like toys. CucinaPro has a waffle maker that forms the carbs into 3D cars and trucks, so it’s like having a pile of Hot Wheels on your plate.

The small appliance works by pouring your favorite pancake and waffle batter into the nonstick slots and closing it to cook. The top half has corresponding cutouts, so as it cooks, it molds the top half of the cars and trucks. The result: waffles in seven different shapes of cars and trucks. We almost don’t want to cover them in butter and syrup and eat them, but we all know we will (after having some fun with them first).

The CucinaPro Cars & Trucks Waffle Maker is available on Amazon for $39.95. It looks like the
