NYC Food Film Festival

BY Laurie in Eat Me

Last night was the kick off party for the NYC Food Film Festival, and boy was I in heaven. (Don't I look happy?) The "Shuck 'n Suck" event took place at the Seaport and guests were treated to an endless array of raw oysters (6500 to be precise) , broiled oysters (w bacon) and even oysters w grits– along with the prerequisite beer, wine and specialty cocktails. The idea of the festival is to pair several short movies about the particular food while the ... Read More

Foodies Unite!

BY Nissa in Eat Me

Tonight debuts the fourth annual New York City Food Film Festival. The NYC Food Film Fest is the delicious brainchild of documentary filmmaker George Motz, director of the documentary Hamburger America. Motz wanted us to be able to explore a multi-dimensional method of tasting food - by learning about it at the same time! So what exactly is this food and film fest? The best answer is that its an exploration of an overall sensory experience of food. You watch a ... Read More
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 ... Read More

Whenever Cake!

BY Catie Colliton in Eat Me

I don't know about you ladies, but it's about time for an afternoon snack. How about some cake? If you have the ingredients, this 3-minute-single-serving-microwave cake is an amazing and delish snack. But be careful of this dangerous cake! With cake just 3 minutes away, you may want to eat it all the time. Photo: ... Read More
  I’ve been writing about my experience with giving up sugar and have been thanked, admired, and smacked down for sharing. Here’s the deal: I write my life. I don’t judge anyone else’s. Everyone has their own paths, their own relationships with their bodies, their own points of view, their own comfort zones. Sometimes hearing about what either people have gone through helps. It helps me knowing I’m not alone when I’m ... Read More
I gave up sugar a few weeks ago, after realizing it was the basis of much of what I was eating. A hot chocolate (or 2) here, some chocolate sorbet there, the occasional poptart, pumpkin bread with chocolate chips,  chocolate hazelnut biscotti—yes, there was definite theme going on. The detox was brutal but now I'm finding I don't miss it. But, a few days ago, I fell back under its spell. I was browsing etsy.com and came across homemade chocolate ... Read More
Cupcakes are delicious. It is a proven scientific fact. I for one believe that cupcakes should be one of the major food groups.  Here at Bust, we received package containing a wonderful cupcake kit from Saint Cupcake, a bakery in Portland Oregon! Simply awesome. Saint Cupcake's frostings and cupcakes are handmade and super fresh with no synthetic flavorings! They have lots of different flavors and even have vegan friendly varieties. There are also ... Read More
We’ve all read about or watched a movie about the terrifying processed food industry and its effects on how we live. The blame has reasonably been put on the corporations that somehow manage to produce modified “food” in record time, but the death of the family meal has been blamed for the increased need of (or addiction to) fast food. And who is to blame for the death of the family meal? Women, or specifically second-wave feminists, according to ... Read More
  Why don't women need to wear watches?  Because there's a clock on the stove!  I'm running out of good sexist jokes, but I think I heard that one in middle school and somehow it stuck with me. Of all the stupid things you can say about women, that they belong in the kitchen is a classic.  Or rather, it's outdated.  With each year, we move farther and farther from a society that says it's a woman's job to cook.  Unfortunately, our ...

Pour Some Sugar on Me

BY Elissa Stein in Eat Me

    Last week I gave up sugar. I realized that while I thought I was a relatively healthy eater, I was basically living sugar fix to sugar fix with not much in between. Hot chocolate in the morning. Lunch time iced coffee with half and half and double splenda, a squirt or two of chocolate syrup stirred in. Chocolate sorbet on the way home from yoga. Mini ice cream cones before I went to sleep. A salad or some pasta thrown in at points, but just as ... Read More
