General Mills is launching a business called Betty Crocker Kitchens that will deliver prepared meals based on recipes in the legendary, and completely mythical, homemaker’s cookbook.
The service is aimed at senior citizens, but The Buzz can totally see it catching on in college towns, where $8 plates of pasta delivered to your dorm room door would sound mighty tasty about 11:30 on a Friday night.

Smoke signals: Beginning today, The world’s eyes will gaze upon a simple copper stovepipe in Vatican City this week, as cardinals meet to select the next pope.
And remember: Black smoke means “No pope yet.” White smoke means “Pope elected.” And red smoke means “We’re starving. Send 115 Betty Crocker Kitchens pot roast dinners.”
