In my piece on low-income cooking as self-care, I shared a picture of a ramen noodle stir fry with chicken, a recipe I received from my good friend and fellow food lover, Lauren. Like me, Lauren constantly looks out for delicious, inexpensive, and quick recipes. Since she shared it with me, it’s become a regular part of my menu. You can find many variations of this basic recipe, as well as other great examples of eating well on a ramen noodle diet, all over the internet. This is my variation of this recipe. Continue reading
So far this month, we’ve taken a look at what we can queue up on Netflix and what movies to keep an eye out for in theaters. But for the bookish (and clever, natch) among us, today we’re going to look at the best horror-themed book releases this month. Two huge names make appearances in this list, one with a sequel to one of the greatest horror novels of the 20th century. If you’re a fan, you already know what I’m talking about.
Christopher Pelant is back and is simultaneously more creepy and less threatening than ever before. Agent Flynn returns, briefly. Sweets is back in a suit. Super-cute Priestender is back, too! Continue reading

Unfortunately, people with special needs also face obstacles when they attempt to report a crime. A study by the Disability and Abuse Project found that 70 percent of people with disabilities had been victims of abuse, with 50 percent of these individuals having suffered from physical and 41 percent from sexual abuse. Fewer than half of victims with disabilities filed reports, and when they did, fewer than 10 percent of alleged perpetrators were arrested.
Killed over a movie ticket: How law enforcement hurts people with disabilities on Salon, by Emily Shire
I often tell people I have three boys, ages 17, 20, and 47 — like many men, my husband is an overgrown teenage boy when it comes to some things, particularly his sense of humor when he’s around my actual offspring. Continue reading
It used to be that horror fans would wait all year long for the late fall/October horror dump, when the studios vomited out every even remotely scary movie they’d have sitting around on their shelves. That’s not so much the case anymore — The Conjuring, The Purge, and Insidious 2 all skipped the Halloween market — but you can still count on October for a couple of good popcorn flicks.
