Marcella Hazan, a native of Italy who was best known for penning six cookbooks, passed away yesterday morning at her home in Florida. She was 89 years old.

Hazan's books were translated to English by Victor, her husband of 57 years, and focused on simple Italian recipes that could easily be whipped up any amateur chef.

For disgraced NFL great O.J. Simpson, that's just how the cookie crumbles. When you get caught stealing them from the prison cafeteria, that is.

The Juice was caught with not one, not two, but a dozen oatmeal cookies pilfered from the correctional facility he calls home, a new report says.

Simpson, who's serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery at Lovelock Correctional Center in Pershing County, Nev., ganked them after lunch.

He may have gotten away with his unusually non-violent offense but for an inquisitive guard who noticed O.J. hiding something under his prison clothes.

When the corrections officer questioned O.J., he allegedly confessed. For once.

We may soon have another Chick-fil-A situation on our hands.

In an interview on an Italian radio show today, Barilla Group Chairman Guido Barilla said his company would never run an ad with a "homosexual couple." He then explained why:

"Not for lack of respect but because we don’t agree with them. Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role."

According to a Reuters translation, Barilla said of any firestorm that may come his way as a result of this stance: "If [gays] don’t like it, they will not eat it and they will eat another brand."

We came down to Bryan, Jennifer and Douglas on the finale of Top Chef Masters.

Before a winner could be named, however, the cooking tables were turned, with these finalists kicking back, relaxing and actually enjoying a meal made for them by Curtis Stone.

But the competition was then ratcheted up a notch… or four notches, we should say, as the contestants were tasked with a four-course meal that represented something old, something new, something borrowed and something sous.

Among the tasty concoctions laid out for the judges: Bryan's Groat Salad with Dungeness Crag; Jennifer's Paella Gnocchi with Chicken Meatballs, Mussels and Shrimp; and Douglas' Black Sesame Panna Cotta, Shattered Miso Custard and Green Tea Matcha.

Fifty Shades of Grey wine. It's actually a thing. E.L. James, author of the popular novels, has introduced it, starting with two "personally blended" bottles.

Just as Christian and Anastasia blend their bodies into one. Or something.

The Fifty Shades of Grey wine varietals, titled Red Satin and White Silk, do not come with handcuffs, but may make you more likely to end up in them.

We mean sexually, not in a DUI arrest sense. But don't drink and drive kids.

So what do they actually taste like? We'll try to refrain from obvious jokes and sexual innuendo for just a moment and work from the official release:

A levitating magician in a Pepsi Max ad? Confusing and misleading, but not exactly controversial.

That same qualifier can't be said for a new poster sponsored by the beverage company, however, as we're pretty sure it's in promotion of Pepsi's partnership with Japanese clothing company A Bathing Ape's line AAPE.

But we can't be totally sure because... well... just look at the font choice that was somehow settled on:

Confusing Pepsi Ad

This image first appeared on Reddit and Pepsi is yet to respond to various requests for a comment.

In the meantime, we'll at least assume the distributor is not supporting sexual assault and we'll strongly urge it to go with Times New Roman in the future.

Paula Deen returned to the public spotlight for the first time since this summer's n-word scandal, and cried tears of joy after receiving a huge ovation.

The celebrity chef, 66, broke down in tears amid 10 minutes of thunderous applause at the Metro Cooking & Entertaining show in Houston Saturday.

"These are tears of joy, y'all," she said. "This is my first time out in three months. The one place I wanted to make my first step out was in Texas."

"You are forgiving folks with hearts as big as your state. We all experience pain in some way but pain is also a good thing because it makes you grow."
