Ron English Cereal Art Sends a Message—Venice, CA
If you live in the Los Angeles area and happen to be perusing the cereal aisle at the Venice location of mega-supermarket Ralph’s, you may find yourself confused. Gawker reports the manufacturer’s boxes have been replaced with contemporary artist Ron English’s “popaganda.”
The packages have been rebranded, giving their names and slogans a satirical twist: “Sugar Frosted Fat,” “Fruit Looped,” and “Sugar Diabetic Bear.” The controversial artist is famous for hijacking and twisting pop culture icons and advertising brands for his surreal pop art. Case in point: His fattened-up Ronald McDonald was featured in Morgan Spurlock’s fast-food documentary, “Super Size Me.”

You just pick a main ingredient (from veggies, beef/pork, pasta/rice/grains/cheese, fish/shellfish, or a surprise), pick a type of dish (5 ingredients or less, soups/salads, no-cook, breakfast for dinner, sandwiches, or a surprise), and then get some recipe options!
Real Simple never ceases to amaze me with their simple, taste-tastic recipes! Go ahead, try it for yourself.
My mom made these cookies for dessert to go with my “Father’s Day Fiesta” dinner. She stuck to the recipe’s advice and splurged on a higher quality Dutch cocoa made with alkali. The result was a decadent chocolate flavor. Since Poppa has been avoiding nuts lately, she omitted them, swapping…
