Sometimes chopping just isn’t an option. Maybe like me this week you can’t use your dominant hand. Maybe you’re sick or just really tired and don’t have it in you to stand in the kitchen for long enough to do all of the things.
It’s no secret that trans women love pickles. It’s science you guys. Our hormones make it so we don’t absorb sodium as well as other people, at least I think that’s true. That’s what I tell my friends, anyway.
“Once in college I ate popcorn for seven straight meals. That’s over two days of nothing but popcorn.”
After a long day of existing, nothing makes me feel better than a warm oversized bowl of warm noods. Maybe you feel the same? Well have I got a list for you.
“I wish there were more LGBTQ food writers, though — it can be a pretty stiflingly traditional (read: heteronormative, and very white) world. Find a network of like-minded queer women to work with, seek advice from and befriend! We gotta stick together.”
A reporter asked Hillary how many calories are in this and she booed him and kept eating. Damn right.

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.
Really, all that I know is that zucchinis (or zukes, as I like to call them) are damn healthy, damn versatile and damn delicious. They really are so terrific that every good person likes them.
Food processors are for 21st-century chumps. Go old-school and feel so much better than your technology-dependent friends.
I’m from Idaho and in Idaho we learn that you can survive on just potatoes and butter? All the nutrients you need are in potatoes except for a couple, which are all in butter. Is that true?
Every time they offer me a potato chip or french fry, it’s like a well-meaning relative insisting that “you just haven’t met the right guy yet.” Sorry, Aunt Helen, but it’s not a matter of the right guy or the right potato.
One of my favorite things that I started doing after I came out was learning how to cook some of my mom’s recipes and it’s made us a lot, lot closer than we ever were before.
“I honestly just Gryffindored my way through a lot of this process, using my supreme confidence in my skills as my guide.”
