When it comes to the basics of cooking, I think we can all agree that peanut butter sandwiches are about as basic as you can get. In fact, I think a peanut butter and banana sandwich was the first "meal" I ever made by myself as a child.

With that in mind, you wouldn't think you'd need any kind of "food hack" for spreading peanut butter onto your sandwiches, right? Me either. But apparently, Food Network has a different opinion.


They recently posted a video to their Facebook page titled, "Brilliant Peanut Butter Hack," but the video didn't exactly come across as helpful to viewers. In fact, it turned out to be a source of pure entertainment.

The "hack" is that you can take a sheet of parchment paper and spread peanut butter in an even layer. Then, you cover it with another sheet of parchment paper, roll it out thin with a rolling pin, and freeze it until it's solid. Then once it's frozen, you take it out and cut it into squares. Then you take those squares and separate them with MORE parchment paper and freeze them AGAIN.

As you can imagine, people were quick to note that this was, in fact, a LOT more work than simply spreading peanut butter onto your bread, but Food Network's point? "There's this whole convenience thing with sandwiches, little slices of meat, slices of cheese, pickle slices! Why aren't there peanut butter slices?"

Um.

Of course, people were relentless with their roasting of the "hack," and what follows is arguably the best use of Facebook comments I've seen all year.

Miranda Lambert Got Trapped In the Snow and Recorded The Greatest Video of All-Time to Tell Us About It

Miranda Lambert isn't super into social media and letting the world know what's going on with her every second of the day. I respect that about her, but I wish she shared more because when she does, she's hilarious. Like the time she got stuck in an elevator but had a bunch of Tito's in her purse, so no one cared.

Miranda's latest hilarious masterpiece came in the form of a winter nightmare. A snowstorm hit Nashville just as Miranda was preparing to hit the road on her Livin' Like Hippies Tour and she couldn't get her bus up to her house, so she had to walk.

"This Is Us" Producer Says We're Close to Jack Dying, But We Don't Believe Him

The most recent episode of "This Is Us," was a bit of a filler episode in that, we all needed a minute to recover from that Pearson family therapy session. Other than Kevin moving in with Rebecca and Miguel, not much happened-- unless you remember one little line from a flashback scene in which, Rebecca said to Jack, "remind me to get batteries." At the end of the episode, we learned the batteries were for the smoke alarm.

Supposedly, Jack is supposed to die in a fire and that's what everyone wants you to believe, but at this point, I'm not convinced Jack is ever going to die.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon Will Each Earn Around $1 Million An Episode for Season 2 of "Big Little Lies"

After big wins at the EMMYs and Golden Globes for Best Limited Series, you can't say Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman aren't worth the price of admission for "Big Little Lies," but almost $1 million an episode seems like a lot-- for TV.

The BFFs and Hollywood A-listers made around $300,00 per episode for season 1 of the HBO drama, which was never supposed to have a second season. Both actresses were also the highest-paid movie stars at one point in time, too. Kidman took the title in 2006 and Witherspoon made the big bucks in 2009.

New Information Revealed About Las Vegas Shooter-- Motive Still Unknown

I was in Las Vegas last weekend. I walked past Mandalay Bay, where a shooter holed up with an arsenal of machine guns and high-tech equipment while indiscriminately shooting into a crowd of country music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. Today, there are few markers of the tragedy on the strip and the shooter's motives are still unknown. Information is slowly coming to light about Stephen Paddock, information that could help us heal and prevent something like this from happening again.
