If you haven't seen the debut episode of BUST covergirl Mindy Kaling's new show, The Mindy Project, you probably need to drop everything you're doing right now and get in the loop. As Mindy's same-name character tells a five-year-old in the first episode: "You're boring. Contribute something!" And contribute we have - everyone's been recapping, buzzing, and writing critically about the show for the past week after FOX streamed the show early. We'll be recapping all the episodes as they happen, too, but the season premiere...
With bacon jam appearing on restaurant menus and artisan pickles piled high at farmer’s markets, it’s clear that canning has made a comeback. It’s a great way to enjoy your favorite fresh produce all year long; it’ll stay shelf-stable and botulism-free, as long as you follow the directions carefully.

Fall means one thing to me: New Girl is back on FOX! I’ve been waiting all summer to see what’s up with my favorite manic-pixie-nightmare-girl, Jessica Day (played by former BUST cover girl Zooey Deschanel). Turns out, she hasn't been up at all.

I love her “Yes, Really” T-shirt and The Nightmare Before Christmas ties.   You can find Rainbow Alternative designs on Nicole’s Etsy shop or at...
  Daniel Barnz directs this narrative sister to the school-reform doc Waiting for Superman, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis as two Pittsburgh mothers who want to fix their kids’ failing elementary school. Gyllenhaal plays an Erin Brockovich-like character with tattoos, heels, and an “I’m not an activist, I’m just a mom working two jobs” mentality. Her daughter is dyslexic, but neither her child’s tenured teacher nor the administration offer any help. So she turns to another teacher at the school (Viola Davis) who also...
