Hilarious Ways Not to Screw up Valentine’s Day

Each February, we’re told that if we really care about our honey, we need to show it with our wallets.  If he doesn’t buy you artisanal chocolates, red roses, and silk lingerie, then he clearly doesn’t really love you. What bullshit! Showing our affection in less consumerist ways is pretty

A Quick, Cheap, Dirty Chocolate + Raspberry Brownie Recipe

Sometimes I’m just not in the mood to gather an endless array of ingredients for my mise-en-place.  But the craving for chocolate can sometimes be unmanageable; the thought of gooey and dense fudge-y, chocolatey goodness being penetrated by my Buscemian canines on loop in my brain.  I like fruit, I

Cupkates: Key Lime Pie for Peasants…
