Spaghetti Sandwiches & Crouton Cereal: Weird Foods You Love When You’re A Kid

As a kid, before I understood the concept of carbs, I used to make myself delicious spaghetti sandwiches. That’s where I would pile a bunch of spaghetti and sauce onto two pieces of garlic bread and chow down. Of course, eating pasta on bread is kind of a gross thing to do (just kidding, it’s totally delicious). But it’s nothing compared to the awesomely gross thing my boyfriend used to eat as an after-school snack as a child. Each afternoon he would pour himself a bowl of croutons and douse them in ranch dressing. When he ran out of croutons, he would sub in Cheese-Its. I really think this snackovation makes him my soul mate, but I know some of you have some awesome snack recipes, too. Tell me all about them in the comments!

Jenna Lyons is the president and creative director for J. Crew. She’s also sort of a walking, talking embodiment of the brand’s hip preppy vibe. In this video, a clip from the upcoming CNBC documentary, “J. Crew and the Man Who Dressed America,” Jenna talks about how the company must predict what trends will be popular more than a year out. She and J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler are largely credited with bringing the company back from the brink of failure, and “The Man Who Dressed America,” debuting May 24 chronicles the brand’s auspicious rise.

7 Stars Who’ve Tried (And Maybe Failed) With Bangs

Amelia and I were just talking about how much better we think Taylor Swift looks with bangs than without. Ever since she took the bangs plunge earlier this year, Swift just looks way more elegant and chic. The bangs really frame her face and make her look more mature.

I’ll probably always have bangs, because I’m too impatient to grow my hair out, and sideswept bangs seem to really frame my face best. And Amelia has had bangs for basically her entire life, ever since her mom gave her an epic bowl cut in 1984. But bangs don’t necessarily work on everyone.

We’ve got several other celebs who got banged up in the past year — sometimes for better and sometimes for worse. Let us know what you think in the comments!
