Dear Cookie Butter,

I wasn’t aware of your existence until I was standing in line at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and noticed a display of jars with a sign that said “LIMIT TWO PER CUSTOMER.” I went to investigate but was stopped by a middle-aged man with a handlebar mustache wearing a Gryffindor t-shirt. Apparently sensing my curiosity, he held his hand up and shook his head. “You don’t want to buy that,” he said ominously.

“Why?” I asked. “What is it?”

“It’s cookie butter,” he said, “and once you start buying it, you will never stop.” Keep reading »

sexist sausages

Leave it to Germany to make every kind of sausage imaginable. These Rastings sausages are designed and marketed specifically towards men or women, bearing a hyper-sexualized image of the opposite sex. The sausages for women are labeled “lean,” while the brats for men are labeled “hearty” and “strong-spiced.” Obviously this is because women are solely concerned with their appearances while men are helplessly self-indulgent with no concern for their health. Gender-specific tubed pork products! What a brilliant idea. Obviously, I would go for the “hearty” sausages for dudes. [Huffington Post]

Kitchen Nightmare: 10 Cooking Questions Ami Is Almost Too Afraid To Ask

Winona: So Ami, I had this thought while I was making dinner last night. I really want to teach you to cook.

Ami: I would love that.

Winona: Because you hate cooking right?

Ami: I just don’t get it. I’m impatient and hate doing things I’m bad at.

Winona: As a perfectionist oldest child, I feel you, girl.

Ami: Plus, in my house growing up, no one cooked. Like nothing. It was cereal for dinner. I can cook eggs and chicken. That’s it. Keep reading »

An Empowered Woman's Guide To Eating Lunch Alone

Ami and I have both experienced our share of tragically lonely lunches. In 5th grade, Ami had to sit alone at lunch because she was the new kid in school and had no friends; in high school, Winona often ate her PB&J in the chemistry room to escape the stress of the mean, crowded hallways. These were dark days indeed, but when we grew up and learned to love our alone time, we reclaimed the solo lunch and reinvented it as a positive and empowering experience. Nowadays, we both actually prefer to eat alone. Yes, really. It gives us a chance to regroup and steel ourselves to face the second half of our workday. To help other women conquer their fears of eating lunch alone, we compiled a list of dos and don’ts that will help turn your solo lunch from soul-crushing to life-enhancing (and, obviously, we illustrated them in GIFs).
