Even the most organized freelancers could probably stand to be a little more organized.
Did your friend/relative/coworker have a baby recently? Give a gift that shows you see how exhausted they are and you care.
This one goes out to all my vegetarian and vegan cuties.
“I get up off the floor, reach for a long, heavy leek and a cutting board and my favorite knife, its weight in my palm like an amulet. I feel like a stranger in my own life, but I have seven hours and eight dishes left. There is work to be done.”
So, you’re spending Thanksgiving 2016 alone. I’m here to let you know that spending Thanksgiving alone is not only just fine, it’s also damn fun.
I cook with so much garlic that I’m pretty sure my hands perpetually carry its scent, which I should probably apologize to my girlfriend for. But I will never stop doubling and tripling the amount of garlic a recipe calls for, because I like to live my truth.
Practically perfect in every way.
“I get a real sense of satisfaction from making something cute and domestic, just a bit deviant. Whether it’s a cake piped with ‘Happy Fucking Birthday’ or a set of kitchen towels with embroidered ball gags and whips — I just can’t get enough.”

The best honey in the world comes from this one roadside honey stand in PEI that works on the honour system (spelled with a “u” because Canada). It tastes like fresh ocean sunshine. It tastes like happiness. Other honey is okay too I guess.
You’ll find ciders, lattes, hot chocolate and boozy hot drinks in here! Sip them during your autumn adventures.
Make one of these for your sweetie, your mom, your vegan/gluten free gal pal, or your cat (don’t do that), and celebrate the loving embrace of autumn!
Savory pies (and tarts and galettes, too) that will keep you warm and happy and full even as chilly weather and crispy leaves descend from above.
Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables. Zucchini is the vegetable you pair with yellow squash and serve in vats to large groups of people you disrespect. Zucchini is a miserable cucumber.
