Of all the glorious corn-based creations on Earth, tamales—steamed cornmeal cakes filled with protein or vegetables—are my fave to eat. Though they take forever to make, you can whip up a few dozen of these at once, freeze them, then reheat as you want to eat them.
Makes: 3 dozen tamales
Total Time: 7 hours for pork, 3 hours for vegetarian
You’ll need a slew of cornhusks, a steamer, and plenty of time. Buy the dry husks from a Mexican ... Read More

The Food Film Fest is one of the oddest and most fun movie events in the game. The conceit is (fairly) simple: the audience watches a series of short films on some element of food culture, and as each dish is introduced on screen, servers distribute tasting plates of the same dish to all the viewers. And after each screening, a party is held where the theme food is served (along with a whole lot of relevant-themed beer and cocktails, of course). The events, ... Read More

Since today is World Vegetarian Day, and since I LOVE being a vegetarian, I thought I’d celebrate by sharing links to some of my fave go-to veg recipes. Some have been seen here on bust.com before because they were too delicious to keep to myself. And some are appearing here for the first time even though I eat ‘em up every chance I get. Take a look and let me know in the comments what your favorite ways are to get your veg on!

Last year, when the farmer's market was looking sad with nothing but kale and onions and potatoes, I bought a sugar pumpkin, just 'cause it looked so cute. When I got it home I wasn't quite sure what I'd do with it. Unlike Jack-O-Lantern pumpkins, which really aren't the most delicious for cooking and eating, sugar pumpkins are much smaller, more round than squat, and they have flesh that is firmer, and less stringy and watery, than their larger sisters.

It’s Friday. Clearly, I'm very focused on my work, and am not at all daydreaming about the upcoming weekend and the gorgeous fall weather that has shown its face the past week. To me, Autumn means warm sweaters and comfort food; I’m already planning my menu for the next week; so many soups & stews to be had!
But it’s dessert that gets me the most excited. Without air conditioning (help me, I’m poor), it was very difficult to find ... Read More

It may seem absurd to call a bread accessory badass, but I stand by it when it comes to Better off Spread. This Brooklyn-based company promises to "blow your ants straight off their log," and they don't bluff. To start, their branding is the best. Their logo features a knife applying spread on toast that miraculously looks like an electric guitar, and their spreads have been named with prize-worthy metal-inspired puns. A sampling: Every Rosemary Has Its Thorn and ... Read More

The recipe for a satisfying purchase calls for quality products, unique details, and an inspiring company mission. The best friends and pro foodies Jessica Quon and Sabrina Valle behind The Jam Stand have it down pat. Hailed as Brooklyn's "happiest food company", Quon and Valle began their journey in an apartment kitchen in Williamsburg, where they vowed to stay true to their mission: create a food company that’s a true reflection of themselves and their ...

In the biggest "Wait...what?" of the past 15 minutes, the rapper 2 Chainz has written a cookbook oh-so-cleverly titled #MEAL TIME. The cookbook pairs hearty southern-style dishes with your favorite 2 Chainz songs. I know, it doesn't really make sense...but it looks TASTY!!!
Normally, I would be ranting about the absurdity of a book instructing me to "Put on my Versace apron" as the first step to making Teriyaki Salmon, but look at this picture:YUM.
Now, under ... Read More
