True, foxes aren’t known for being good pets. But Juniper and Fig aren’t your average rescues. The two North American red foxes were born in captivity and rescued from fur-farms (can we add how many years ago?). Genetically different from their counterparts they can not be released into the wild; instead they live happy, full lives with their loving adoptive family (can we say where/what state?) and their doggo brothers.

Millions of Yemenis are at risk of hunger and contracting cholera after three years of war, an emergency that has also hit cancer patients, who are struggling to get treatment in a country where the economy and infrastructure have collapsed. The World Health Organization said around 35,000 people have cancer in Yemen, with about 11,000 cases diagnosed each year.

When it comes to ridiculously amazing fast-food hybrids, Taco Bell is a top contender. Let's take its Crunchwrap Supreme, for example. It's a genius concept to grill a taco-burrito hybrid until it's crispy on the outside. But you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to get a Crunchwrap fix now that we can show you how to grill the wrap in your own kitchen. Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme From Life in the Lofthouse Ingredients 1 pound ground beef 1 packet taco seasoning mix 3/4 cup water 1 can nacho cheese 8 burrito-size flour tortillas 6 tostada shells 1 cup sour cream 2 cups lettuce, shredded 1 cup tomato, diced 1 cup Mexican cheese blend Cooking spray Directions In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook and crumble the ground beef until cooked through. Drain excess grease and stir in the taco seasoning mix and water. Cook according to the package directions. Warm the nacho cheese sauce in a microwave-safe bowl. Place the flour tortillas on a large plate and microwave for 20 seconds to warm them. Lay 1 flour tortilla on a flat surface. Spread 1/2 cup of taco meat in the center of the tortilla, about 6 inches across. Drizzle with nacho cheese sauce and top with 1 tostada shell or crispy corn tortilla. Spread a thin layer of sour cream over the tostada shell and top with lettuce, tomato, and shredded Mexican cheese. To fold the crunchwrap, start at the bottom of the flour tortilla and fold the edge up and over the center. Continue to work your way around, folding the tortilla up and over the center fillings. If there is an open spot left in the center, cut a piece from an extra flour tortilla and tuck it underneath so the fillings are completely covered. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat to a medium heat. Place the crunchwrap seam-side down and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the tortilla is golden brown. Carefully flip the crunchwrap over and cook the other side until it is golden brown. Serve immediately.

Oreo Cinnamon Rolls From Kevin Smith, POPSUGAR Food Ingredients 8 double-stuffed cookie sandwiches 1/3 cup sugar 1 can biscuit dough 1/2 stick butter, melted Directions Preheat oven to 375°F. Separate the filling from 8 double-stuffed cookies and set aside. Crush the cookies into a plastic bag with a rolling pin until they resemble coarse crumbs. Pour cookie crumbs into a separate bowl and mix in the sugar. Set aside. Open a can of biscuit dough and combine all of the biscuits into one large mass. Roll it out into a flat rectangle and cut into 4 even strips. Brush the dough with the melted butter and coat evenly with the Oreo cookie and sugar mixture. Roll up each strip. Place your Oreo rolls onto a greased pan covered with foil and cook for 25-30 minutes, then remove the foil and cook them uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown on top. To make the glaze, microwave the Oreo filling in 10-second intervals until it resembles a glaze. Wait to make glaze until the Oreo rolls are completely done, as the glaze hardens quickly. Drizzle the Oreo glaze across your cinnamon rolls and garnish with additional cookie crumbs, if desired. Enjoy!
