Making a salad at home is a pain in the ass and everyone knows it. Too much chopping! Too much washing! Too many partially-used ingredients sitting in your fridge afterward! BAH HUMBUG. NO SALAD.

My mom grew up in South Dakota and Nebraska. She was the second of seven children, and the first daughter, which meant that she was the child most tasked with helping to prepare meals. Those two facts factored largely into my fish-less childhood — my mom did all the cooking, and she had absolutely no… READ MORE »

There are few things on this earth I love more than coffee and butter, but mixing them together seems nothing short of blasphemous. Bulletproof coffee, as this combo is so affectionately called, has seeped its way into the morning routines of seemingly sane people over the past few months and been beaten to death by… READ MORE »
