5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Remember waaaaaaaaaay back yesterday when we told you Eddie Huang, BaoHaus owner and "Fresh Off the Boat" blogger, had acquired somewhat of a "bad boy" reputation in the culinary world? It's not entirely unmerited - he's known to dabble in la vida loko.

Most of us - twenty-one and over, bien sur - have had our fair share of Late Night Cheeseburger Doritos, piled high pastrami sandwiches and drive-thru buckets of fried chicken. We could tell you about it, but we'll let Eddie do the honors.

Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

Keen-eyed readers may recall a few weeks back when we spent the goodly part of a week eating bananas in the basement of the CNN Grill at the annual SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. Well, we managed to flee the building for a few minutes and bolt across town to take part in a panel at the TECHmunch food blogger conference.

In part one of a series of videos from the conference, moderator Addie Broyles of the Austin-American Statesman, Tampa Tribune food writer and master Top Chef Twitterer Jeff Houck and L.A. Times food editor Rene Lynch and I discuss How to Leverage Traditional Media and get on a Food Editor's Radar - essentially how you can get your fabulous bloggity self on our pages and screens.

If you're already shocked by how much your favorite cut of beef costs at the supermarket, brace yourself because prices will keep going up.

Surging commodity prices already have consumers paying more for groceries such as eggs, milk, cereal and meat. The price of beef in particular has shot through the roof.

In February, the average retail price per pound for beef was $3.87, up 12.4% versus a year ago, according to market research firm FreshLook Data.

ADHD, the FDA and Blue Dye #1

A Food and Drug Administration advisory committee began weighing evidence Wednesday on whether dye additives in food affects behavior in children. The panel listened to testimony from doctors and scientists who contend that studies, although small in many cases, do show that some kids begin to show signs of hyperactivity once they are exposed to certain dye mixtures.

The question is, should the FDA committee urge the agency to strengthen its regulation of these ingredients?

According to the experts who testified, European companies already are dropping dyes including Blue #1, Yellow #5, Green #3 and others and substituting natural dyes for them. But the United States still allows artificial dyes, mostly for aesthetic reasons, not for taste.
