At the strike of Winter Solstice tomorrow (Friday, December 21 6:12am EST) the Mayan clock breaks. Or rolls over. Or restarts. Nasa says, "Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know, however, it will be another winter solstice."

Nasa. What a buzz kill!

We at MyRecipes do not claim to know when or if the Earth will end. Some of us even have trouble calibrating our own ovens, for goodness sake. But we do know this: If the world is ending (which is entirely likely... someday), we want you to have done, experienced, and tasted everything you wanted to before the big fireball in the sky arrives to take us out.


With that said, now's the time to review your kitchen bucket list. Did you make homemade bread? Truss a crown roast? Fry chicken? If not, now's the time to get started.

What's on your kitchen bucket list? Now get going-- some of these recipes need to rise, rest, or marinate overnight, which means an early wake up call for you.

On the off chance that we're wrong and this is the last blog post you're reading before the world descends into powerless chaos, then it's really time for you to pay attention. Do you know how to survive a zombie attack? Try to remember survival tips, such as this one:

Survival Tip: Make sure your disaster preparedness kit has a can opener, but try to find a really old one so that you get weapon-ready jagged edges on the lid of the can.
