Food Porn (Subtitle: 50 Shades of Sugar)

17 Aug

Anybody out there seen the “Creme Fraiche” episode of South Park?

I know South Park is naughty. I’m not a proud watcher –but when I happened to catch this episode:  I. Could. NOT. Stop. LAUGHING.

Why? Because it might have hit a little too close to home.

For those among you who haven’t seen it, I will just say that food and sex are tied together in a hysterically funny way.

I’m NOT saying that’s my problem. But I DO wonder why I continually torture myself with watching or reading amazing recipes that are — more or less — food fantasies for me right now.

For example, I have been addicted to the Food Network for quite some time. Last weekend I found myself watching an episode of Paula Deen and her son making this sinful chocolate-caramel pecan layer cake that nearly sent me into ORBIT. I DESPERATELY wanted to make that cake. And eat it. Every bite.

I don’t really even LIKE cake that much.

And now, I find myself freakishly drawn to any and all recipes on Pinterest.

Especially the most decadently naughty recipes that no girl (in her right mind) should be teasing herself with while on a controlled carbohydrate diet.

Sigh.

WHY do I do this to myself??

Is it torture? Yes, kind of. In a delicious, unrequited taste sort of way.

Heaven help me.
