Proof Ryan Gosling Tastes Good Slathered In Maple Syrup

Chicago-based artist Katherine Kalnes apparently makes portraits out of pancakes and so she created this Ryan Gosling flapjack exclusively for the celeb blog The Famous. Gimme a fork, I’m starving. [The Famous]

Keep Herbs Fresh & On Display

As a single gal, cooking for one is fun, but there’s a problem: many ingredients aren’t sold that way. Herbs, for example. So many great recipes call for fresh herbs, but in small doses — unfortunately, they’re rarely sold in small amounts at the grocery store. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to toss excess herbs that have dried out or gone rancid after only a few days of sitting in the fridge. Such a waste. If only there was an easy way to keep herbs fresh that didn’t involve rigging a makeshift greenhouse in your refrigerator. Oh wait, there is! This set of three herb pods from the Spoon Sisters stores your herbs and keeps them fresh for up to three weeks. Plus, the windowed design put them on display, which would totally give my fridge — which is mostly stocked with Diet Coke and hot sauce — a dose of pretty.

Last night, Jerry Sandusky was interviewed by telephone by NBC’s Bob Costas on “Rock Center.” Sandusky, of course, is the former assistant football coach at Penn State who is accused child sexual abuse against eight alleged victims. When asked by Costas if he is a pedophile, Sandusky replied with a curt, “No.” But he did admit, ”I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.” He also admitted to some wrongdoing, saying, “I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”  Keep reading »

Hot Links: Better Names For Bella’s Baby & Why Women (Supposedly) Don’t Like Nice Guys

  • The name of Bella’s baby in “Breaking Dawn” is “Renesmee,” a mashup of Bella’s mom’s name (Renee) and Edward’s “mom”‘s name (Esme). It is also stupid and really awkward to actually say. So here are 20 better baby names, not that there’s any changing it at this point. [The Stir]
  • This is my worst nightmare: a 17-year-old dog named Basie went missing from her owner’s backyard, so the family searched high and low and posted fliers all around their neighborhood. The next day, they found out Basie had been found, mistaken for a stray, brought to an animal hospital, and euthanized two hours later. How on earth this happened, I don’t know, but I am going home to hug the crap out of my dog Lucca. So sad. [The Stir]

November 14: What Are We Wearing Today?

You know what we could use a little reader feedback on? Poses. I know looking at our outfits every day is terribly interesting on its own, but we’d like to kick it up a notch by making our poses more entertaining. Not all of us are like Ami, for whom posing wacky comes naturally. So, if you could play Tyra for a day and direct our daily outfit photo shoot, how would you like us to pose? (Naked and/or in a gigantic Greek salad are not viable options, FYI.)

Little Girl Gives Her Doberman A Pawdicure

Who says a bad ass dog like a doberman can’t also get his nails did? Sometimes pups need a little pampering! (Or at least that’s what Lucca tells me every time she demands a massage.) And I concur with Jessica at The Gloss who sees a deeper message in this photo currently making the rounds on the internet. “This is a big f*k you to people who like to insist that certain breeds of dogs are naturally inclined to be vicious,” she writes. “Dobermans were the pit bulls of the 1990s, and yet here’s one exhibiting more patience with a child than a lot of adult humans would have.” So true. The smudges on my most recent mani are evidence of that. [The Gloss]
