If you're like me, you woke up one day to find that Rachael Ray had taken over the world. Suddenly, she had a magazine, a gazillion TV shows, and she was in every ad known to woman. I never cook (I used to pretend it was some sort of feminist statement, but I've recently faced up to the fact that I'm just lazy) and so I almost never watch the Food Network. I just figured I'd missed out on something fabulous that the rest of the world seemed to have caught on to.

This   melts my face off!Another tip from Shon aka The Brunchman. Ronald Jenkees rocks my world. Where my ladies at, someone send me some fast fingered chicks ASAP. I beg of you.

  My boy Shon over at Frank 151 got me into Divinci, just 2 MPCs, WTF? Walk this way for more fast hands.   In this video he explains his technic.

Finally someone I was actually gunning for on a reality show wins.

 This is perhaps one of the greatest gifts I've ever been bestowed upon. Grillz Candy! YEP! It's like a lollipop, but instead of a stick, you hold it with your new blinged out grillz that clip to the front of your teeth. These totally kick the ring pop's ass. I'm saving mine for the next Drunky Brewster show.

 If you're a T-shirt and jeans sorta gal like me, you can never have enough tees, and ZUL Clothing (that's Intern Jen rockin' their style above) offers an assortment of simple, comfy tops with Asian-inspired patches and prints.Each shirt features a different cultural icon (this season is all about China) and has a little explanation attached so these tops aren't just cute but educational too.

  Ever since the publication of ‘Skinny Bitch’, it seems to me like this crazy new fad diet called ‘veganism’ has been popping up all over the mainstream media,* from strip clubs to punk rock cooking shows to the exploding going green movement to America's Sweetheart Oprah to even (cue suspenseful music) feminism! With all the good press veganism has gotten lately, much of the bad press is fading into the background, such as veganism being a mask for eating disorders and everyones favorite, child abusing vegans.

For all you NY-area BUSTies out there: Brooklyn’s 4th Annual Renegade Craft Fair is this Saturday and Sunday from 11am-7pm! It’s being held at the McCarren Park Pool, so grab some friends and get your craft on in the more-bearable summer sun. (80 degree range this weekend! Yay!)With over 200 vendors like Supermaggie, The Small Object, and My Paper Crane, make sure to bring your wallet and a huge, reusable tote to haul your goods home.

Sugarcraft, an exhibition of over 50 artists from all over the world opens June 27th at Kasia Kay Art Projects in Chicago and runs through till August 9th.  The theme of the exhibit focuses on indulgence in the arts and it also breaks down the boundaries between art and craft. For example, one artist “invokes a cake’s frosted layers as a personal symbol of subtle inter-familial divisions.” This exhibit gives entirely new meaning to the term “foodie”, making the culinary arts lean more towards conceptualized art.

 In response to pressures from PETA, KFC Canada has given into their demands to start offering vegan options on their menu. "Un-chicken" nuggets will soon be available in the Canada locations. But really, would any serious vegetarian really need or want to even step foot in a KFC? I've been fortunate to have lived in cities like San Francisco and New York, where I have never found myself without plenty of meat-free options, and I realize not everyone has this luxury, but still...
