Full disclosure: I am writing this from a chair. I’m not doing squats, I’m not lunging across the office, I’m not secretly clenching my butt cheeks together while envisioning my brand new J. Crew neon yellow bikini settling perfectly on my teardrop behind. I’m wearing shorts that are maybe just slightly shorter than necessary, but that’s because Forever 21 was having a super legit sale and IT’S BASICALLY SUMMER OUTSIDE! This ... Read More

Today, I stumbled upon several articles promoting Alexa Chung's collaboration with Nails Inc. and the reveal of their newest polish made of KALE. No, you did not read that incorrectly. Yes, this nail polish, entitled NailKale, is made with the trendiest leafy green to ever make a comeback.After discovering this hilarious nonsense, I decided to scour the internet for more bi-products of the kale-obsessed decade in which we live. What I stumbled upon will surely ... Read More

One of the customers at the Atomic Grill Restaurant in Morgantown, West Virginia, requested via UrbanSpoon that, for whatever reason, the servers "show more skin." In retaliation to this absurd complaint, the owner of the restaurant, Dan McCawley, posted a photo advertising a $7.00 potato skin special. Amazing.
McCawley said in an interview with ABC that, "It was brutish. I was upset. I'm a father of a 12-year-old girl and I've got five sisters. The way that ... Read More

In my early days as a restaurant cook, I had nightmares about breakfast. Not about consuming it, but preparing it. That fear had less to do with my hatred of waking up early and more to do with my anxiety over poaching eggs. “Ordering! Five more eggs Benedict!” the expeditor would scream, and I’d crack 30 eggs into the poaching water, hoping 20 of those would turn out edible. Though it took a while before I got my rhythm down, once I did, I became a ... Read More

Some people may roll their eyes at the thought of vegan cuisine, because they immediately think of these three things: The granola guy who brings his kitchen-sink salad in a mason jar to the office, or that friend who never wants to try new restaurants because there is no vegan option, or the Soul Cycle lady who is only a vegan for bogus dietary reasons. The vegan stereotype can assume many different forms, but at the end of the day, the rise of Veganism has ... Read More

If you don't know Alex Guarnaschelli, or you do but never knew that was how to spell her name, let's take a minute to appreciate this deeply passionate foodie. Guarnaschelli is (in my humble and totally love-struck opinion) the greatest lady chef on food television, and believe me, I have watched a lot of food television.
Just watch this video: She talks about food like none other. Seriously, every time she opens her mouth about food she is ... Read More

We need to talk about Sally’s Baking Addiction. If you haven’t heard about her fabulous food blog, all you need to know is that it’s a treasure trove of recipes that will make your life a little better. Why? Because Sally McKenney is a genius, and everything, and I DO mean everything is delicious, and as far as I’ve tried, all the recipes leave nothing to be desired.
As a ... Read More

A great cheese board is a harmony of textures and flavors, and though I have added expertise from my years as a cheesemonger at the legendary Murray’s in N.Y.C. (murrayscheese.com), any layperson can navigate the offerings at their local shop—just follow some simple guidelines.
Choose three, five, or seven different cheeses (odd numbers are more visually appealing) and buy between half an ounce and one ounce per person, depending on how hungry ... Read More

Growing up, I thought the only way to make hot chocolate was to pull a packet out of the box, add hot water (or milk), and stir. Making it “gourmet” meant adding marshmallows—the large ones, since my mom was too cheap to splurge on the mini kind. I only found out hot chocolate could be made another way by accident. After making myself sick gorging on Halloween candy, I decided to try another method of ingesting my bounty, so I melted a cut-up Hershey bar in ... Read More
