Fresh linens, minus the chemicals
Tips and Recipes For a Cleaner, Greener Wash

I have a love/hate relationship with baking, mostly because I often have to spend a ton of money to buy a million random ingredients just for the purpose of making one delicious thing, and then I'm left with random shit in my pantry and fridge--like half of a vanilla bean, heavy whipping cream, or the yolks of six eggs. Ever since making a sweet potato pie for one of my exes six months ago, I've had a gallon-sized bag of organic sugar sitting around and every time I look at it, I start thinking about pies and him and my mood begins to spiral downwards.

On one fateful day in February, Jess’s fiancé decided he wanted more out of life and peaced. (Read: The “bastard” left her for the Starbucks barista with kids down the street. No shit.) They had already bought a home together some months before in August after a long search. And now, Jess gets to pay for it. Luckily, a good friend has helped by buying out her now ex-fiancé’s share, but now she has 3 years to pay him back.
This is where Bastard Brownies come in. Read More
