We Try It: Blue Apron

You’ve probably come across the ads on Facebook or Pinterest, and thought, “Who needs to have meals prepped and sent to them?” The answer is: anyone who is sick of deciding what to make for dinner, despises the post-work trip to the grocery store, or has a habit of making way too much food for the […]

Crowdsourced Cherry Saffron Scones

On a recent trip to HomeGoods, where I bought every attractive thing in my home at bargain prices, I picked up a teeny-tiny jar of saffron threads. I’ve never eaten anything with saffron in it, but for $3, I figured I should try it at least once.

Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip

Don’t like blue cheese? This is a different take on buffalo chicken dip that I make and everyone LOVES it. This is from the official Frank’s buffalo chicken dip recipe, but I use the different ingredients in place of the blue cheese dressing and blue cheese crumbles.

8-Minute Cheesecake Recipe

My grandma wasn’t particularly known for being ambitious in the kitchen. She was more of a, “Let’s throw this together and make time for a nap,” kind of cook. This is a family favorite. The best part for summer? No baking!!!

Peach Cobbler Recipe

Oh, cobbler. It’s one of those delightful dishes that does justice to summer fruits, but doesn’t do justice to the fact that it is hot out and you really don’t want to turn on your oven. But when you’ve discovered that red haven peaches are back in season, well, raising the temperature of your apartment […]

Beer Bread!

This post all came about because of a misunderstanding. I misheard some comment – it does not matter what was said right now, and let me assure you that the mishearing was awesomer than the original – and my mind took the jumble of sounds and turned them into “beer bread.” Well, what a delicious mistake my […]

Things You Can Do With Frosting

It may surprise you to learn that, although the editorial team spends a lot of time discussing site-related issues all day, we also frequently lapse into more frivolous topics.

Homemade Chocolate Mousse

Today, I was a woman ruled by her uterus. That’s right, shark week is upon me, and my uterus was quite persuasively attempting to convince me to EAT ALL THE CHOCOLATE. When nomming away on my clearance horde from Valentine’s Day was not enough to appease the dictator within my abdomen, I knew drastic measures […]

Baked Pasta, Seasoned With Spite

What is with this weather lately. Microsoft Word is telling me that I should not be ending that with a period because it is obviously a question, but it is absolutely not a real question.

I Really Love Food

There is one comment that I absolutely hate hearing after I tell someone that I do not eat meat. Just the one, and, to be fair, 99.9% of people never say it. And the 0.1% would be jerks in any situation, so please understand that what I’m talking about is silly comments made by jerks, […]
