A mid-year review on some of your favorite celebrities.

Celebrity news is big news, even in the food world. Whether we are talking about the celebrities who lost of ton of weight or the funny food selfies they take, celebrities in 2014 made a big splash in the food industry. As we approach the middle of 2014 (can you believe it?!) we thought we’d recap some of the better moments worth highlight in the year so far:

The Big Picture

  • Celebrities are always doing interesting things, so we rounded up a few of the “larger than life” things they do (like extravagant wedding cakes and dramatic weight loss) into fun stories that gave us more of an insider look into the celebrity lifestyle.
  • We found out why some celebrities decided to turn away from a meat-eating diet. You may be surprised to find who is living the vegetarian lifestyle!
  • Plenty of stars are guilty of the celebrity food selfie. From Taylor Swift innocently peering through a green doughnut to Drew Barrymore’s winning noodle-slurping face, to Usher, shirtless, frying an egg in his kitchen, we give you the following celebrities taking selfies with food on Instagram.
  • Sure, we’d all like to have the wedding of our dreams, but it’s celebrities who can afford the cakes of their wildest fantasies, spending nearly the entire salary of the average civil servant to put the icing on their over-the-top wedding cakes.
  • We honored Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night reign with a collection of 20 culinary clips.
  • We also sent Jay Leno off with a collection of our favorite Tonight Show food moments.
  • Celebrity parents dish out thousands of dollars to throw their kids’ birthday parties — scratch that, soirées. Pin the Tail on the Donkey and piñatas do not cut it for the children of the famous. No expense was spared — the bigger, the grander, the more over-the-top, the better.
