Draw Something…a Funeral and a Resurrection

The Power of veto competition players are drawn and Ian is picked to be the host.

The veto players are picked, and the battle lines drawn.

It’s veto competition time, and the contest is called “Draw Something”.  This competition is a contest of wills and visual puzzle solving.  These puzzles once solved allowed the house-guests to perform a punishment, receive points or decline and be eliminated from the game.  Frank takes on points and punishments as he takes a dip in an avocado bath, accepts a chum bath once an hour for 24 hours, and wears a carrot costume for a week!  Frank also accepts 1 week of non-eligibility for HOH (this would mean two weeks for Frank because his is not eligible in the next HOH competition.

A chum bath looks as bad as it sounds.

Punishment Paint is hurled onto Danielle, and she is in the race.  Dan eats some Big Brother “food” (somewhat gross things) and is a close second in the scoring. After Dan accepts 24 hours of solitary dance party confinement, the scores are very close.

Danielle gets pelted with paint, that later gave her a throat irritation!

Frank mumbles “summer” to Britney and gets disqualified for breaking the rule of not giving away aid to other house guests.  Frank’s punishments stand with no chance of him gaining the Power of Veto.

Frank mumbles “summer” to Brit, and gets DQ’d

Jenn is victorious (by default) and takes slop for the rest of the summer for the win and the power of veto.

Jenn wins the Power of Veto

Dan is overcome with emotion at the loss, and quickly enters his solitary punishment.

Dan is victorious, but sad for having to be so ruthless ( not!)

Britney and Danielle enjoy their time when they are chained together for 24 hours as a punishment of the veto competition.

Dani and Brit, chained by the ankle for 24 hours

After Dan’s 24 hour solitary confinement, he fakes a sort of panic attack and gains some sympathy from the house-guests in the form of concern for his health.   Dan requests a house meeting, saying that he has some things to say.  He addresses the house as if he has remorse, and says good things about everyone, and many tears are shed.  Danielle is the last person to be addressed by Dan, and he says she is dead to him in this game.  Danielle reacts very poorly, and is devastated by Dan’s remarks. He later clues her in on the plan.. she is not amused, but hopeful.

House meetings always end up with big changes in the house!

Dan requests a meeting with Frank during his “funeral” and comes clean with him and tells him it’s a plan to save him and make new alliances. Frank buys in, and joins Dan in a final 2 deal with a handshake. 

Dan comes clean with Frank, and makes a final 2 deal with a handshake, a swear on the bible, and his wedding ring.

During the Power of Veto ceremony, Ian first chooses not to use his golden power-ball veto.  Jenn then steps up and to amazed, astonished and open-mouthed house-guests, takes Dan off the block and replaces him with Brittney.

Brit and Dani are on the block.. much to Brit’s dismay!

Who will be eliminated on the Live Show tonight!  Be sure to tune in to CBS!!!


America Choice is…. Drum roll Please!

America has made its choice, and the choice is……


Dan was picked to be the have not of the week ( Dan has never been a have not in all his time in the BB house) and Jenn has actually accepted the role of have not for the rest of the summer (Spoiler keeps me from telling you how that happened).   She is not allowed to have the added bonus foods, so her time in the BB house is going to be tough!

Mozzarella and Matzo is a pretty interesting choice and opens up all kinds of possibilities.  Yesterday was a pretty tense day in the house ( as you live feed watchers know), and even with the crazy tension and “day drinking” that Ian and Frank did, Joe still came through and made some pretty incredible cheese sticks!

Yummy and delicious, Dan has it made with America’s Choice!

Pandora’s Box, Golden Veto, POV and Have Not’s Abound

Over the weekend on Big Brother 14 there was excitement, twists and lots of flip-flopping in the house.  As we saw on Sunday’s Show, Frank was once again victorious and Won HOH by a contest of balance and nerves of steel.

The game is called “Pull The Strings and the order of players was determined by a first go at the pulley machine.”

Frank and Danielle battle it out for Head of Household!

After a bit of a battle (not well-played by anyone else it seems) Frank wins Head of Household!  The Head of Household Frank must select one person to be a have not for the week and he chooses Dan for that role.  Dan has yet to be on slop in all of his time in the Big Brother house, so it was an obvious choice for Frank to make.

Frank nominates Dan and Danielle this week as expected.  He wants to vote Dan out and as of the day of nominations that remains the plan.

As always with Big Brother, we are told to expect the unexpected, and bingo… its twist time in the BB house!

Frank finds a Pandora’s Box in the HOH room.  Frank can choose to win money or not to open the mystery good or evil box.  He decides to open up Pandora’s Box.  He discovers many cubes with dollar signs on them and he is instructed to choose any three of the, he will receive the cash value on each of the three he chooses.  There is up to a ten thousand dollar prize, there are many with less value. The first box Frank chooses to open is $1.05, the second $7.11 and the last is $3,333.33, a nice prize and he seems pleased with his cash prize.

Frank decided to go for the cash, and unleashed Pandora’s Box

Meanwhile, downstairs the house guests find that there is a second veto available to be won in the house.  It is located inside the Arcade room inside the crane game in the form of a golden veto ball.  They quickly begin to tear up the house, inside and out and finally colorful balls drop from the sky in the backyard.  There are quarters inside some of the balls and to try the machine these coins must be found and taken to the machine, inserted and the claw lowered to attempt to grab the golden ball of veto.  Dan is first to attempt to snag the golden ball and fails.  Dan goes back into the yard and tells the others that he has it, but Joe quickly discovers that he doesn’t and alerts the other house guests to keep looking.

Ian is next to find quarters and attempts to get the golden veto and fails.  Britney is searching for quarters, hears the sound of quarters by Joe and nearly rips the egg from under his foot.  Ian tricks Dan by telling him he tried and it is not in a good position.  Dan finds this out and pours more pressure on Ian by saying that he is going to rat him out. Ian heads back inside to try again, and this time is successful and snags the golden veto ball.

Ian shows off his Power of Veto Golden Ball he won in the Pandora’s Box Competition

Mike and Ashley Evicted, New HOH is Crowned

Boogie and Jenn sit on the block, waiting for the eviction.. the first of two!

It was an amazing and action packed night in the Big Brother 14 house last night.  The Live show on CBS packed a double eviction into one hour-long episode of drama!  As the show began Mike “Boogie” sat on the block with Jenn who had been named as a replacement for power player Frank who once again had won The Power of Veto and removed himself from the chopping block.  It was Jenn’s first time on the block and she showed her anger towards her nominator Shane, and everyone else who she assumed wanted her on the block.  She was naturally a complete and total pawn, and had no chance of being evicted in the first round.  The final votes were cast quickly, and Boogie was evicted by a vote of 6-2 (note: you could just see the shock on his face as he heard the number of votes, because it did not add up with what he expected) with Joe, Ian, Brittney, Dan Shane and Danielle casting the votes to evict.

The before or after is one of Ian’s best chances at HOH!

The HOH competition, which was a before or after trivia questions about things that have gone on in the house since day 1, was then played by all the remaining house-guests except for the outgoing head of household Shane.  It was a tight competition but in the end the expected winner was Ian for the HOH win!  Ian quickly had a few conversations, asked for a few promises and nominated Frank and Ashley for eviction.

Next the  Power of Veto competition was held, and it was a physical competition.  Each house-guest was given a lane with a ball pit full of little yellow balls filling it to the top. Buried in each of these pits were two clovers.  Each contestant was to run to the pit, retrieve the clovers (one at a time) and bring them back to the starting line.  After the clovers were found and delivered, the power of veto replica was to be retrieved and brought back to the goal line and the button pressed.  Frank pulled this win out to save himself from eviction.

The House guests all put there best foot forward to win the POV!

At this time Ian (HOH) had to name a replacement nominee.  Ashley was placed on the block along side Joe.  Ashley really seemed pretty confused and possibly drugged ( she has been taking pain pills and talking about it since day 1 in the house) and gave a pretty jumbled plea to stay in the house.  Joe was breathing quite heavily from either excitement or exhaustion and gave his speech in a non-verbal, gestures manner.  It was quite clear, effective and to the point and by a vote of 5-1 Ashley was evicted from the Big Brother House.

The 2nd  HOH competition of the night was held in the house a couple of hours after the live show and the results are astonishing!  So be sure to stay tuned for what happens and how it will affect the house!  

Tune in to CBS on Sunday for the show, check your local listings for times!

Its time to Vote for Have Not Eats!

It is time once again America to vote for the Big Brother Have Nots additional food for the week.  The slop of course flows a plenty in the BB house, and the condiment list of available things to cook with.   Those who suffer the week long punishment of living in the have not bedroom (which is extremely torturous this season) and living on slop, america’s choice’s and condiments can be tough when under all that stress!

America you can vote on CBS.COM and help decide what the Have Not’s will be eating in addition to slop this coming week!

This weeks choices are going to be promising for agony for some or creative amazing cooking for others!  Either way, I will continue to bring you the latest news and updates on what’s cooking in the Big Brother house!  These are the choices for this weeks have-nots!

This weeks vote choices for America’s Vote! Go to CBS.COM to vote now!

Tonight’s live show promises to be one for the memory wall!  It is a double eviction tonight, however the players only suspect it.  The house has been a mess this morning, and it seems like the HG’s have been breaking down, and really feeling the pressure of the competition.  Mike “Boogie” Malin is on the block for eviction against the 37-year-old Jenn who has been pretty quiet so far this season ( although she does not seem to realize it).  The battle lines are drawn and unless there is some major changes in attitude or inside alliances, regular viewers can pretty much guess who is going to be evicted 1st tonight.  It’s all going to boil down to the HOH and POV competition of the double eviction live show tonight at 9:00PM and on tape delay for the west coast.

Have nots get a week off! MadLoveCooking with Joe

The big brother contestants have it smooth and easy this week, or do they?  There was no have not competition this week so everyone has had a chance to rebuild their stamina and get creative in the kitchen.  Joe is the man (check out his facebook @MadloveCooking), and created a couple of treats for the other house guests over the last few weeks and because everyone raved so much, we’re going to bring you those recipes here!  

Joe has made a couple of Avocado Cheesecakes and from what I hear, this is an amazing dish that has lots of flavor and good healthy proteins!

Photos of Joe creating the Avocado Cheesecake

Avocado Cheesecake


  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 16 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 medium-sized avocados
  • 2 teaspoons of lime zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Put almonds into chopper and pulse until finely chopped. Add graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter, and pulse until just blended. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan. Set aside.

Before starting your cream cheese mixture, allow all ingredients to reach room temperature. Letting the cream cheese, eggs, and sour cream reach room temperature will help the cheesecake from cracking. In a mixer combine cream cheese and sugar, and blend until smooth. Add eggs one at a time until they are incorporated into the batter.

Place avocados into a food processor, and pulse until they are smooth, add lime zest, lime juice and sour cream, and pulse until you have a uniform mixture, add the avocado mixture into the cream cheese, and mix well. Pour into spring form pan. Bake for 45 minutes, check to see if the cheesecake is set, it should still have a small jiggle in the middle when you bump the pan.

Remove from oven, and cool completely on a rack. Chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Other than a good deal of Fruit Loops, and boxed calories the house guests have been eating Joe’s cooking. Oh Joe… gotta wash those hands!  One of the favorites is Chips and guacamole.  While I did not catch Franks recipe on the show (gotta love BB fish!) I do have a fantastic recipe for it, and I’ll share it with you!  

RobinPickles Yummy Guacamole

  • 3 Avocados
  • 1/2 cup Minced Cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime
  • 2 to 4 Diced Small Roma Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Minced Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Take all ingredients and place in a bowl unmixed.  Using two large spoons, begin slowly mixing by making a cutting type motion with both spoons (as if you were using a knife and fork to cut meat) and keep smashing the avocados with the spoons, keep it moving until a nice green “paste” has formed and all ingredients seem to be mixed well.  Chill for about an hour and serve with white corn tortilla chips.  Happy Crunching!

Wil has Been Evicted!

Wil leaves the house by a vote of 6-2

Last night was eviction night in the Big Brother house.  Wil, a 24-year-old marketing consultant from Kentucky, was evicted from the house in a 6-2 vote after being placed on the chopping block by fellow house-guest Frank Eudy, the season’s fifth Head of Household.

Joe gives his all in the competition, but maybe Joe’s best asset is cooking.

The jam-packed live Thursday show went quickly from the exit of Wil, to the Head of Household competition, which was a re-vamp of a past seasons comp.  The swamp theme made for a slippery slope up a hill to a barrel of liquid (the house-guests said it smelled like oil, but they wished it was moonshine) where they would “dip” a cup and carry it to a set of containers of three sizes.  There were also prizes that were to be awarded when each container was filled and the ball floating inside was removed for the win.  The largest container prize was HOH, the next size down was worth $10,000 in cold hard cash and the last and the smallest jug had to be filled for “safety”.  This was explained by Mrs. Julie Chen during the live show, but questioned when won, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Ashley is on her knees attempting a win… will she make it!?

Each contestant could begin filling the jugs in any which way they wanted, and as the live show came to completion it was more than evident which players were going for what prize.  The competition had many spills but in the end Brittney filled the small jug for safety, Mike “Boogie” filled the second jug for $10.000 and finally Shane was able to knock it out and fill the HOH jug and retrieve his ball first for the biggest prize and his own room for the week!

Congrats to Shane… who will he nominate… Stay tuned for more information and Tune in to CBS for the show Sunday!

Shane for the win!

Joe Gone Wild In the BB Kitchen

Joe really was in a creative and mood to cook yesterday!  It could also be because Joe is a have not this week.  Hunger, in the Big Brother house when your a have not, can get pretty intense, and uncomfortable. Slop was created by the producers as a food substitute and is not supposed to be a breeze for the house-guests. America’s choice for the have-nots’ this week is Cod and Candy Canes. As we talked about, the house guests got  all sorts of flavors of candy canes but only one choice in fish, and that is Cod.

Shane is sad he is on slop.. he’s starving and looses an average of 10 pounds in a week while on slop.

The BB kitchen is overrun with ants, and with Cooking!!!  

Frank gets rid of an ant he found in the kitchen!

Cod isn’t one of my personal  favorite fishes, but if I was that hungry or needed nutrition I’d use every creative bone in my body to get the job done!  A few things I’ve thought of making would be Cod Nuggets/fish-sticks, fish soup which could be milk based almost like a chowder, pan seared fish encrusted with slop and maybe even cod roll ups!!!

Joe’s slop burgers have gotten rave reviews, and even the have’s have tasted them and said they were pretty edible.  I have not seen Joe make these as of yet, but I am working on finding out just what is going into them.

Ashley and Jenn hanging out in the kitchen

Joe has said he would like to have his own cooking show on TV, and has been holding regular cooking sessions in the BB kitchen.  He said that the show would be all about cooking with what you have available and I encourage Joe and others to check out another one of my blogs on WordPress called “Cook Something From Nothing” which is pretty much the idea.  When Joe started his mock show, he had it all planned out and introduced us to his newest dish:

Homemade Cod Fillets w/ Salsa Sauce

Ingredients – 1 Step Salsa

Note:  Joe said the reason he could use the following ingredients is because they were “IN” the canned salsa that is on the approved Have not condiment list.  This was questioned, and BB told them they could in future only use the actual ingredient provided by BB and not re-create it with fresh ingredients.  (drats foiled again!)

  • Cherry Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Whole Lime
  • Hot Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Avocado (Big Brother made him remove this before they ate it!)


Add all ingredients to blender, pulse slowly until blended to your desired consistency (about 8-10 pulses), set aside.

Ingredients – Cod Fillets

  • Cod Fillets
  • Olive Oil
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper


Prepare your cod fillets by coating them lightly in olive oil placing them on a baking sheet lined with Tin foil and sprinkling them with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, cover and let rest for about 5 min.

Plate fish and ladle sauce over the fish.

As for the cooking show, it was over as soon as the food was ready.  The have nots were ready to eat a good meal, but did complain a bit (well it was Brittney) that the fish had bones galore.  

Brittney.. Just shoot me, I’m so hungry!


Be sure to stay tuned to Slop Du Jour to keep up on What’s cookin’ in the BB house and see what the have nots are eating!

Joe is Cookin’ for the Have Nots

It was Monday morning in the Big Brother house, and day 4 of being on slop.  Joe got creative this morning and decided to create some breakfast for the house guests.  A concoction that Joe called “Dolce de Leche slop bread with butterscotch topping”.   A very creative idea, and FANTASTIC use of the multi-flavored candy canes that were given to this weeks have-nots.

Joe the Chef has his own Restaurant in Indiana

A very nice breakfast type “bread” with a sweet candy topping

Joe’s Dulce de Leche Slop Bread

Dulce de Leche – Prepare First


  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 vanilla bean
  • 2 Butterscotch Candy Sticks
  • 3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda


In a large saucepan, bring milk to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth. Return to pan.
Cut vanilla bean in half and pour the seeds in the milk. Stir in the sugar and replace the pan on medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Just as the milk mixture begins to boil, stir in the baking soda. Reduce the heat to medium, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. When a wooden spoon drawn through the mixture leaves the bottom of the pan visible, and the mixture is light brown in color, remove the pan from the heat.
Place the pan in an ice bath and stir constantly until dulce de leche is cold. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

The finished product and 4 very hungry house guests breakfasts!

Bread Mixture

  • 3 cups Big Brother Slop Mixture
  • 1-2 cups milk (add slowly until batter texture is reached)
  • 1 cup sugar or equivalent sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Generously butter a 9×13 inch baking dish.

In same pan, whisk together all ingredients and bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Bake the bread pudding for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top is golden, and the middle is firm.

Let cool a bit, serve in slices on plates and drizzle

Serve hot and spoon dulce de leche over the hot bread pudding and finish off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

The Have Have-Not Competition is Sour Citrus!

The BB 14 House guests are suited up and ready for squeezing.

The Have/Have Not competition was rough going this week.  All of the HG’s were able to participate expect for Ashley who has had some major back problems flare up (she seems to have recovered quickly)and she was able to choose to compete as shadow player of Franks in the Lemons and Lime Juicing competition.  I’m not quite sure how that was decided, but I imagine it was by drawing.

 Anyway, the idea is to dip yourself in the pool of juice, and soak up as much as you can into your Lemon or Lime themed sponge, run over to the juicing station and be juiced by your fellow citrus teammates, one member of the team was also a farmer, and they were to change the hoses that collected the juices squeezed out of the sponge suits.

Joe gets squeezed of his juices by Frank.

Joe, even when on the block, seemed to be hanging out in the “juice” a good long time, while the others jumped on each other as if they were trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records number for the largest glass of lemon-aid ever!  The efforts paid off for team Lemon and the have-nots were doomed to a week of slop and America’s choice of two food items.

America voted and picked Candy Canes and Cod! Many flavors were given including Cherry, Strawberry and Butterscotch!

America was pretty kind and voted for the Cod and Candy Canes, and Big Brother even gave them a multitude of flavors to work with.  House guest Joe is a chef and is a chef in his home life.  of the have-nots so we should be in for some creative treats this week!  

Stay Tuned for more updates as they happen!
