On one fateful day in February, Jess’s fiancé decided he wanted more out of life and peaced. (Read: The “bastard” left her for the Starbucks barista with kids down the street. No shit.) They had already bought a home together some months before in August after a long search. And now, Jess gets to pay for it. Luckily, a good friend has helped by buying out her now ex-fiancé’s share, but now she has 3 years to pay him back.

I don't know about you ladies, but it's about time for an afternoon snack. How about some cake? If you have the ingredients, this 3-minute-single-serving-microwave cake is an amazing and delish snack. But be careful of this dangerous cake! With cake just 3 minutes away, you may want to eat it all the time.

I’ve been writing about my experience with giving up sugar and have been thanked, admired, and smacked down for sharing. Here’s the deal: I write my life. I don’t judge anyone else’s. Everyone has their own paths, their own relationships with their bodies, their own points of view, their own comfort zones. Sometimes hearing about what either people have gone through helps. It helps me knowing I’m not alone when I’m ... Read More

I gave up sugar a few weeks ago, after realizing it was the basis of much of what I was eating. A hot chocolate (or 2) here, some chocolate sorbet there, the occasional poptart, pumpkin bread with chocolate chips, chocolate hazelnut biscotti—yes, there was definite theme going on. The detox was brutal but now I'm finding I don't miss it.
But, a few days ago, I fell back under its spell. I was browsing etsy.com and came across homemade chocolate ... Read More

We’ve all read about or watched a movie about the terrifying processed food industry and its effects on how we live. The blame has reasonably been put on the corporations that somehow manage to produce modified “food” in record time, but the death of the family meal has been blamed for the increased need of (or addiction to) fast food. And who is to blame for the death of the family meal? Women, or specifically second-wave feminists, according to ... Read More

Why don't women need to wear watches? Because there's a clock on the stove! I'm running out of good sexist jokes, but I think I heard that one in middle school and somehow it stuck with me. Of all the stupid things you can say about women, that they belong in the kitchen is a classic. Or rather, it's outdated. With each year, we move farther and farther from a society that says it's a woman's job to cook. Unfortunately, our ... Read More

Last week I gave up sugar. I realized that while I thought I was a relatively healthy eater, I was basically living sugar fix to sugar fix with not much in between. Hot chocolate in the morning. Lunch time iced coffee with half and half and double splenda, a squirt or two of chocolate syrup stirred in. Chocolate sorbet on the way home from yoga. Mini ice cream cones before I went to sleep. A salad or some pasta thrown in at points, but just as ... Read More

The Sex and the City 2 trailer has been out for a while but I've been avoiding it. As a former resident of the Persian Gulf, I dreaded what it might look like when our fearless foursome landed in the desert. But after finally getting around to reading this month's issue of Vogue featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, I had to.
Sam gets four all-expenses paid tickets to Abu Dhabi (as you do) and the girls put their lives on hold for a reunion tour. We've got camels and ... Read More

My local coffee shop in NYC has been promoting a new product called Fat Pig. The concept and packaging almost feel like a design student’s portfolio project, edgier than you’d expect to actually see produced in real life. Each think square brick is wrapped in hot pink foil, on top of that, a hot pink wrapper imprinted with a pig’s snout. So, should you want to be cute/funny/silly/entertaining/flirty, you hold the bar up to your face and boom: ... Read More
