If you're like me, you have no idea what to make for dinner every single day. I will go into the kitchen and stare blankly into the refrigerator. Uhhh, I guess I could make pasta? Or grilled cheese? I have definitely already eaten at least one of these this week. Or maybe I could just microwave some MorningStar chick'n nuggets and call it a day? I feel like there are a lot of foods in the world, but my brain can only think of a...

Rice pudding. It’s amazing, right? Timeless comfort from the humble union of rice and milk, sweetened, stirred, and perhaps bedazzled with a spark of dried fruit or ground cinnamon. Made with long-grain (basmati) white rice, it’s an elegant dessert, but made with chewy, short-grain brown rice, it’s my jam as a substantial snack or—made with a little less sugar—an alternative to oatmeal for breakfast.  For this vegan version, homemade cashew-coconut milk makes a smooth and creamy backdrop. And because I’m lazy—I mean, really busy—I favor rice...
Take a time out from the turkey this year, and instead host a Thanksgiving dinner with a menu inspired by your favorite feminist icons We all know that today’s interpretation of the first Thanksgiving is kind of a sham—we’re pretty sure there was no congenial corn-cob sharing between the colonizing pilgrims and the Native Americans they persecuted.

Sitting in a corner of the new Midtown location of New York restaurant Sake Bar Hagi, countless plates of Japanese food surrounding him, Anthony Bourdain begins talking about porn. Food porn, that is. I don’t mean the perfectly-lit avocado toast photos on your Instagram feed and Pinterest board, but the lavish descriptions of sushi that fill his new graphic novel, Jiro: Blood and Sushi. As the title implies, the loving odes to sushi almost outnumber the body count in this Tokyo-set dystopian gangster story. Almost. I’ve asked...
