By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking (refrigerating?): Lost in my Bedroom by Sky Ferreira The Air Nomads. Interestingly their title describes the people rather than a sovereign state. If you hadn’t guessed from the anime’s title, the main character is an air bender, the last one in fact. Talk about an endangered species. The air nomads were peaceful monks. Stately beings in touch with their spiritual selves….

  By Nandini Ahuja It’s hard to imagine a sexy bran muffin. Can you picture your bran in a two-piece swimsuit, lounging on a Caribbean beach? Or in a slinky red dress at the bar? Or taking a body shot off a friendly stranger? At this point, you may be picturing your gran, but remember, I said bran, and it’s entirely your fault that you’re thinking about gran. Anyway, when…

By Kylie Torres Who cares about a red cup? Let’s focus on spelling. Honestly, this red cup drama has gone far enough. How about we talk about some real Starbucks news, like how they spell your name.

By Gabriele Boland You know what’s hard about liking Dunkin Donuts coffee and being gluten-free? Not being able to order a donut to go along with your cup of joe. And going apple picking without being able to eat a sugarcoated cider donut is pure agony. Don’t even get me started on Krispy Kremes. Luckily, there are some foods that I simply cannot live without and so I have scoured…

By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking: Time Warp, from the Rocky Horror Picture Show Like many others out there, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Once a year, you can literally be anything. A person, a thing, a pun. What an opportunity to really express your creativity, either outright or subtly. I love the costumes, the debauchery, the mystery, and the candy. To get my coworkers…

By Nandini Ahuja A few weekends ago, my parents were out of town, and I saw it as a golden opportunity to spend some time alone in the kitchen. I was planning to cook something straight from the random assortment of ingredients in the kitchen, a la Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-Off.

By Dayna Brownfield Maybe it’s the chocolate. Maybe it’s the camaraderie of sitting around a campfire. Or maybe it’s just that I like setting things on fire. OK, it’s probably the last one. But honestly, I really just enjoy lighting my food on fire – when the occasion calls for it. And yeah, I totally wrote my last post about the awesomeness of s’mores. But I’m back with s’mores news (hello…
