The most magnificent recipes on the internet

Source: I Am A Food Blog, Dude Foods

Did cooking even exist before the internet? It's hard to say, really. That now archaic document, Julia Child's Mastering The Art of French Cooking is a masterpiece of its time, but just imagine if Child had a food blog. Seriously. Imagine it. 

The internet has created some vulgar food horrors and inspiring food masterpieces, all for our cooking pleasure. Thanks to our beloved era of mash-up creations, food porn and recipes created for what we can only assume are clicks (and clicks are not delicious), the web has birthed an unstoppable movement to create the most trending, viral and shareable recipe, that only the brave will actually construct in the kitchen. We've found some of these amazing recipes, and wanted to share. Thanks, internet.
