    Making the Case(-ing) for Dunkin Donuts' Spicy Smoked Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

    It was my husband who spied the sign as we pulled through the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. "New Smoked Sausage Breakfast Sandwich--have you had it?" Josh asked. We had just finished a workout, and were still in our sweaty sweats--what better time to zip through a fast food joint "just for coffee"? Talk ... More >>

    These Limited-Edition Holiday Treats Are Pretty Weird...But We Still Want To Try Them

    Aah, the holidays. Time for roasted turkey and jingle bells and homemade pies and sriracha candy canes and...wait, what? We're pretty horrified about some of the limited-edition holiday products that have hit the shelves (remember Jones Soda's 2004 Turkey & Gravy Soda, anyone?). But do you know wh ... More >>

    Panera Bread's Healthy Hidden Menu: Why So Secretive?

    Secret menus at some of our favorite fast food, quick-service restaurants like Burger King, Sonic, Chipotle and McDonald's are not so secret anymore, and now you can add Panera Bread to that list.

    Healthy Fast Food Menu Items Can Lure and Deceive Consumers

    If you're on a diet, or are at least trying to eat healthier, you probably don't frequent fast food restaurants throughout the day. A typical fast food menu isn't full of healthy and nutritious items. However, a few fast food chains recently began to add lighter options to menus, due in part to a re ... More >>

    5 Fast Food "Secret Menu" Burgers You Probably Shouldn't Try

    Remember the McGangbang? Yeah, sorry...We're sorry we brought it up again, too. But it got us thinking: Surely there have to be other "secret menu" items lurking out there, just waiting to be discovered. And because we live in a sick, sick world, there are.

    Forget Butter & Jam: Five Other Ways to Use An English Muffin

    English muffins are a constant in my household. I love the texture of the spongy dough filled with its all-famous nooks and crannies. Crisp up those little guys, and anything goes. The only rule, in my opinion, is no knife. Using a fork to split them open keeps the integrity of the incredible textu ... More >>

    An Unsuccessful Attempt at Battling Jet Lag with Whataburger

    I normally wouldn't revisit a Fast Times destination again so quickly after another recent review, but this week hunger and convenience forced my hand. After tumbling off of a six-and-a-half hour flight from Anchorage, my husband and I were hungry and exhausted, and a Whataburger smorgasbord breakfa ... More >>

    What's Cooking on Pinterest? Healthy "Egg McMuffin"

    Having the option to grab breakfast on-the-go makes our lives easier, but it doesn't necessarily benefit our health. This week on Pinterest, I found a healthy version of McDonald's Egg McMuffin that you can make ahead of time. I'll admit that I was skeptical. But these simple substitutions tasted g ... More >>

    Breakfast Double-Header at McDonald's: Sausage Burrito and Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal

    I think I've mentioned before that I like to eat fast food for breakfast more than any other meal, mostly because it gives me at least an outside chance of burning off the damage at the gym. Breakfast is also my favorite meal -- yes, sometimes I eat two -- so I like to see what's going on with fast- ... More >>

    Portable Pleasure with Oh My! Pocket Pies at Inversion Coffeehouse

    Inversion on Montrose is a lifesaver. It's where I go to get work done when my Internet goes down, where I stop to get a cup of coffee after battling early-morning rush-hour traffic, and where I can grab a tasty pastry to sate my hunger.

    Fast Times: McDonald's Under 300 Menu

    When I see a McDonald's commercial I don't exactly stop everything I'm doing and pay close attention, but I couldn't help but take notice of their recent attempt to brand "Egg McMuffin" as a descriptor for "the best" of something. The ad features various people describing things as "the Egg McMuffin ... More >>
