  Listen, I love watching food competitions as much as the next person. Seeing contestants battle it out in the kitchen for a coveted prize and chef-ly bragging rights, as opposed to the usual aggressive drink-throwing and screaming antics at restaurants featured in other reality television shows (ahem, Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise), is a much welcomed, drama-free relief. I mean, I can’t think of […]

If nothing else, the great Brangelina split of 2016 is a consoling reminder that no matter who you are, breakups blow. Even I, a woman willfully ignorant of celebrity happenings (real talk, I could not give less of a sh*t… I didn’t even know Angelina and Brad had SIX kids together until news of the divorce flooded the internet), couldn’t keep from acknowledging and shedding […]

The Dish Sponge: 5 Smart Tips for Cleaning the Dirtiest Item in Your Kitchen

  Have you ever had a conversation with someone who’s passionate about their disgust for kitchen sponges? I never knew the little yellow (or blue, if you’re that kind of person) things were such a hot topic. Oh, but they most certainly are.

We Tried It (to Save you Some Heartache and Heartburn): Coffiest

Yesterday, I tried Coffiest (the most recent space-age meal replacement product release from Soylent), and it was a source of unexpected, but very real emotional distress–not nourishment. I think the most accurate and concise product review I could possibly give for Soylent’s Coffiest was captured in my response to an intern’s interoffice message announcing that there was potentially delicious food up for grabs.
