Finally, Cupcakes For Men

We thought everyone liked cupcakes, but apparently some guys find the usual variety a little too cute and unmanly for their tastes. To compensate for the large amount of “girly” cupcake shops and to ensure that men can eat cupcakes without feeling any less masculine, David Arrick started Butch Bakery. The New York City-based company,…

There’s Good Luck And A Census To Fill Out In Your Future

You may think you’re safe from the Census’ over-saturation of advertising at that dingy, down-the-block Chinese restaurant. Well, you’re wrong. The Census is looking to learn more about America, but it seems they have our irresistible urge to open up fortune cookies all figured out. I think some others may want to take this creative…

Snacks At The Movies Should Be Avoided, Even If They’re Healthy

A movie exec over at Sony is trying to convince theater owners to sell healthy snacks instead of popcorn, and theater managers have been receptive, but whether patrons will hop concession stand lines to get a bucket of cauliflower is debatable. Honestly though, after working in a movie theater for about a year when I…

Human Milk Cheese? Cat Stew? 10 Truly Terrible Culinary Ideas

Chef Daniel Angerer once kicked Bobby Flay’s butt on “Iron Chef.” But if you visit his Klee Brasserie in New York City and try one of his signature dishes, you might be a little surprised to hear about one of the ingredients—cheese made from his wife’s breast milk. “I prepared a little canapé of breast-milk…

Girl Talk: When Did Food And Sex Become Mortal Enemies?

A typical Saturday night for me can be summed up one of two ways: food or sex. Do I skip dinner and start drinking, adopt the “eating is cheating” adage so I can feel thin and attractive and get tipsy quicker, thus increasing the chances I’ll get naked later, or do I cave and ope…

Do Yoga And Booze Make A Good Cocktail?

I made a bunch of resolutions for myself for 2010, among them to attend yoga at least three times a week. For a few months last year, I actually made it to class four times a week, but the further we got into the dark season, my winter doldrums set in and I just couldn’t…

Eating Green Just Got Much Easier

Low-output shower heads kind of suck and fluorescent lighting can make a girl look tragic really fast, so some of us justify our unwillingness to switch over and help the environment out just a little. But when the rare opportunity to stop taking total advantage of the planet while enjoying ourselves comes along, there’s really…

The link to this recipe on Food & Wine’s website was tweeted by editor-in-chief Dana Cowin, who asked her followers, “Pornographic or artistic? F&W pub’d this pix of Eric Ripert’s salmon app. in Jan issue & have gotten some flack.” Heavens, why? [via Twitter]…

Breaking News! Taco Bell Will Make You Skinny!

Goddamn do I love Taco Bell’s 7 Layer Burrito. Cheese and beans and beef and sour cream and hot sauce and oh-so-much-more wrapped in a nutritionless flour tortilla … mmm mmmmmm!

What’s The Best Holiday Dish You Chowed Down On?

Ah, the holiday season! It’s full of presents, family, and best of all food, lots and lots of food. And it’s not your average fare. At parties people really bust out their best recipes. Fat intake flies out the window, and my diet becomes basically, cream, butter, sugar, and pork. Mmm! Although I can’t really…

Cocktail Perfectionists, Behold The Eternal Ice Drop

You know what second drinks are, right? When the remaining ice in your cocktail melts, allowing you to suck every last drop of alcohol out of the glass? This might be swell if you’re Pam on “The Office” and enjoying a jumbo-sized Blue Lagoon from Applebee’s. But for your finer concoctions, ice can ruin your…

France’s Guerre De Cuisine Focuses On Horse Meat

In a country that adores cheese and foie gras, vegans in France are a joke in the same way that Lindsay Lohan thinks she’s a designer. So you’d think the French wouldn’t give a damn about politically correct food. However, tensions have risen lately in Paris over the use of horse meat in contemporary cuisine.

Why I’m Avoiding The New Slew Of Pro-Vegetarian Books and Movies

I feel like Jonathan Safran Foer is stalking me. OK, maybe not the actual guy—he’s got a beautiful, ridiculously talented wife, some kiddos, and a new best-selling book called Eating Animals, which Natalie Portman says made her go vegan, so no, he’s not actually stalking me. But I feel like he is, in the same…

Waffle Fries, No Deep Fryer Required

Waffle fries are the holy grail of French fries for me, and it’s not always easy to find them when I have a craving (or they’re so weighed down with grease they’re soggy — ugh). Luckily, I came across Alexia FoodsCrunchy Snacks Waffle Fries at the grocery today. They don’t need fried or cooked,…

What Are The Most Comforting Comfort Foods? Share Your Recipes!

During the summer, it stays light well into the night, and I like to meet friends for late, alfresco dinners. But these days, as darkness falls by 4:30 in the afternoon and it’s nearly always raining, I just want to get home, curl up in a blanket, and down comfort foods like there’s no tomorrow.
