A perfect roast chicken can make for a delicious meal and the Ultimate Chicken Roaster, from All-Clad, promises to deliver perfection every time. The unique design of the roaster uses a detachable suspension arm that holds a chicken above the pan. The placement allows for the entire chicken to brown evenly, as well as provides room for a full pan of roasted vegetables. The pan has a flared design that allows the chicken to have full exposure to heat. The arm also has a reservoir, that can be filled with flavors like wine or beer to take your roast chicken … Read more
Last week Google announced the beta version of Adsense for mobile applications. With this new service, developers will be able to better monetize their applications and games. What's more, the revenue generated should be enough to encourage developers into spending more time on their Android projects.
In order to qualify for the beta service, a developer's application must generate 100,000 impressions per day. The developers generate revenue based on the number of people who click on an advertisement they display. The click-through rate, or CTR, is often higher on mobile ad units because they are highly targeted … Read more

If my prediction for beer-can chicken gaining in popularity doesn't come true, I have a backup plan: fondue. The once-popular, and practically mandatory, party accessory seems to be making a comeback. In a world where Internet fads come and go like the dying breeze, I see no reason why the fondue party cannot once again dominate the casual get-together scene. Any planned interaction at a party serves two purposes: first to keep your guests entertained, but more importantly, set activities act as an ice-breaker.
I'm going to make a bold prediction: bacon may well have been the favorite food obsession of the Internet during 2008, but beer can chicken is going to wrestle the mantle away this year. Of course, we won't know the results of this delicious statement well until mid-summer, but all the signs are there. We have seen a recent explosion of interest in the cooking method, and now we are seeing more products designed to deliver the classic meal. From ceramic cookers looking to mimic the process to simple devices resembling colanders or mesh steamers, the fact is … Read more
Super Bowl week continues, and whether or not you watch the game for the commercials or the actual game, most likely you will tune in. Even more likely is that you will find yourself in a room full of different snacks and treats of varying degrees of healthiness. My advice is to steer clear of the chopped celery, carrots and cauliflower (those will just get smothered in a dressing anyways) and go for the good stuff. Chances are pretty good that somewhere on the spread is a pile of chicken wings.
The perennial football favorite, chicken wings are personal, portable, … Read more
If you've ever had beer can chicken you know how good it can be. Normally made on the grill, the chicken literally rests on top of an open beer can. The steam generated by the heated beer flavors and moistens the chicken, while the fat drips off. Your guests gather round and watch as the whole contraption cooks away. So, it's dinner and a show.
For those times when the whole can process seems like too much, there's an alternative. This deep-dish chicken cooker replicates the method, albeit not the experience. Sometimes the simple and easy way … Read more
