Whether you define the start of summer as the moment it’s finally warm enough to break out your favorite short-shorts (sans tights, of course), the void between the beautiful ending of one school year and the dreaded beginning of another, or the first weekend you and your girls can head to your favorite beach, it’s finally here for many of us, in all of its mercurially sunny splendor (And if you’re one of those sticklers who believes that summer ...

By Isa Chandra Moskowitz Styled and Photographed by Vanessa Rees Summer is the season for crispy salads, and while the bottled dressings at the supermarket are inviting, they never taste all that fresh. Luckily, whipping up your own dressing is a cinch with these recipes. Plus, they only require a handful of ingredients, many of which you probably already have in your kitchen cabinets. So give from-scratch dressings a shot; they’re way more satisfying and ... Read More

The Disney Diet

BY Intern Christina in Eat Me |

When you were a kid, did you ever find yourself looking forward to celery? Probably not, unless your parents did a really great brainwashing job. In that case, more power to them. Now, Disney is trying to step in and do that parent brainwashing job themselves. Or maybe we should call it reverse-brainwashing, in the way of removing all junk food advertisements.  My memories of food from when I was a kid consist of begging my Mom to lay off the healthy stuff. ...

We BUST staffers have a mouthful of sweet teeth-- we email each other photos of ice-cream concoctions and homemade marshmallows as if we're sending around breaking-news items. We get goodies sent to the office from time to time, but few have gotten as much attention as the stuff we recently received from Sweet Mary's. We marveled over the multicolored Caramel Chocolate Apples, which were approximately the size of a newborn baby's head, and quickly devoured a bag ... Read More
Vegetable broth is a staple for home cooking. Essential for soups, it also adds flavor to things you might otherwise just cook in water, like beans, quinoa, and rice. Canned or boxed stock can get a little pricey (especially if you want something organic). Bouillon is cost-effective, but I always feel like it ends up giving all of my dishes the exact same flavor. These days, I rely on a great trick I learned from my cooking-savvy friend: save your scraps to cook ... Read More
We saw this post on "Food Pervert" Laura Vincent's blog HungryandFrozen.com, and had to share it with you. For another homemade ice cream recipe (which also does not require an ice cream maker), check out our June/July issue, which hits stands today!I thought that Gin and Tonic Ice Cream would be nice. Gin and tonic go together so excellently well, so why wouldn't they excel together in ice cream form? Well, it wasn't so much "nice" as ... Read More
You know how they say, “Celebrities, they’re just like us?” Well, they're wrong. Celebrities aren't a damn thing like us. For instance, if you’re a celebrity – even one as seemingly down to earth as Kat Dennings – you can afford to do things like have all of your meals cooked for you by someone else and then have them delivered to your house each day as if by elves. We learned this when the woman behind Los Angeles’ Paleta and her press agent came ... Read More
Summertime is so close I can almost taste it. It tastes like sunshine, margaritas, freedom, and Sweet Sally's Blueberry Buckle. Here at BUST, we love a good dessert. An entire website full of delicious desserts? Too good to be true. Sweet Sally's is the product of Sally Saltzbart Minier, a third generation baker who learned everything she knows in the kitchen from her mother. And speaking from personal experience, their treats, which ship to the entire ... Read More
My palate is about as sophisticated as an 8 year old's, so when food is labeled "healthy" I automatically distrust it. But the folks at Cinnamon Snail deliver fresh, healthy food that also happens to be super duper tasty! They focus on vegan asian fusion with a specialty in breakfast pastries and flavorful sandwiches. Now famous in midtown for their rabid fans and long line, Cinnamon Snail has made quite the name for themselves in the past 2 years since they ... Read More
It’s not often that you get an ice cream sandwich and an interpretation of architecture all in one – and that’s exactly what you get at Coolhaus. Named in honor of the Bauhaus movement, Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, and the idea that every ice cream sandwich is in fact a mini cool house, this awesome ice cream sandwich truck focuses on sustainability as well as art; every Coolhaus ice cream sandwich is made with organic materials, and is wrapped ...
