The moral of our queer tale in our gardens is the same as it is our lives: just keep fucking planting until something survives.
Stir frying is all about the drama: high heat, wildly fast stirring, the explosive sizzle that sets off my smoke alarm. To begin, I slip my apron over my head and put on some Whitney. There are few things I like better than singing “I Have Nothing” to some food I’m about to eat, and begging it to stay in my mouth if it dares.
Drink poolside at Bette and Tina’s! Dance on the sticky dive bar floor at Vida’s! Have a champagne toast in Villanelle’s apartment! We’re all doing our best!
I surveyed some of the plant parents here at Autostraddle, and we’re all so excited to show off our little ones. If you’re a plant parent, show off your babies in the comments, too!

Here is a definitive ranking of Good and Gather, because I am an expert.
“It’s so tempting to think that everything has just one story, and I’m inviting people to look beyond the one they know.” At this turning point that COVID-19 has presented, I discuss what the future of food, restaurants and our entire society could look like with Soleil Ho, the SF Chronicle’s restaurant critic.
The case for Bagel Bites: they are affordable and lovely and delicious no matter what.
A fake gay bar on a fake gay beach — WHY NOT!

Norwegians have this word — koselig — that imperfectly translates to “cozy” in English. To be koselig is to be connected, grounded, immersed, intimate. It’s a hard thing to accomplish right now, when social life is fragmented and ephemeral. This Boozy Spicy Hot Cocoa (and an impromptu face mask!) should help.
My kitchen process is a lot like collaging. I like to ask myself, “If I were at a party in my fridge, who would I want to pull into an unexpected and fascinating conversation together?” In the end, what I decided on was a cookie convo flavored with browned miso butter, bacon fat, cinnamon and cocoa, studded with walnuts and bacon bits.
