Move Over Nutella And Make Room For Cookie Butter

For those times when slathering peanut butter on something just isn't enough, there is now cookie butter. Louise Kramer with the Specialty Food Association says, "Cookie butter has become a really big thing in 2014. It really is a treat that appeals to the American consumer in a new way." The cookie butter debuted in 2007 on a Belgium TV show, and the first flavor was based on a European cookie called "specloos"-- a cinnamon biscuit similar to a graham cracker. Now companies are expanding flavor varieties to appeal to classic American tastes, with flavors such as graham cracker and cookies & cream. Kramer points out another appeal of cookie butter, saying, "Parents don't want their kids to dip into raw cookie batter with eggs so it's a great alternative to get to lick cookies right off a spoon."

I must admit, I'm a big fan of this stuff!  So far the only place I've found it is Trader Joe's but I'm sure other stores have it too.

Easy Trick Helps You Avoid Drinking Too Much Wine

Wine can help you relax at the end of a long week, but how do you know when to stop pouring? A new study finds that pouring just half a glass of wine can be a successful way to prevent drinking too much. Researchers studied pouring habits of a group of participants and say that those who stuck to pouring half a glass, or to stop pouring two fingers from the top of the glass, tended to pour out 20 percent less than those who did not follow a rule. Study author Laura Smarandescu says, "It's a big difference. We would suggest using a rule of thumb with pouring because it makes a big difference in how much people pour and prevents them from over-drinking."

Web Sites Match Sing Dog Lovers With Other Single Dog Lovers

If you love your dog so much that you want it to be involved in your search for a date, there are websites for that. Sites such as PetsDating.com and YouMustLoveDogsDating.com are connecting dog lovers with one another. Many of the sites recommend users bring their dogs on their first dates as a kind of ice breaker, and of course to see if there's chemistry between the pooches. Michal Strahilevitz, a professor of marketing says, "Having a theme that is...about one's passion makes it feel like you are looking for a needle in a smaller and far more relevant and appealing haystack." Still, not all agree it's a good idea, dating expert Trish McDermott says, "To squeeze doggie behavior under the first date microscope...is just another way to uncover the fatal flaw of an otherwise potential romance."

Women Outpace Men In Running The Distance

Women and men have different strengths, and new data shows women are better at pacing themselves when running than men are. Researchers looked at nearly 92 thousand runners in 14 marathons. They found that at the halfway point, men slowed down an average of 16 percent, while women slowed down just 12 percent. Even experienced male runners were found to be more likely than experienced women to see their speed decrease in the second half of a marathon. Why does this happen? A researcher says it may be because "men burn a greater percentage of carbohydrates for fuel than women," while women burn more fat. This means that "men typically run out of fuel or hit the wall earlier than women do." The other theory is that men simple start off fast and hope they can keep the pace
