Today, I stumbled upon several articles promoting Alexa Chung's collaboration with Nails Inc. and the reveal of their newest polish made of KALE. No, you did not read that incorrectly. Yes, this nail polish, entitled NailKale, is made with the trendiest leafy green to ever make a comeback. After discovering this hilarious nonsense, I decided to scour the internet for more bi-products of the kale-obsessed decade in which we live. What I stumbled upon will surely make you laugh, cry, and curb your kale cravings-- well, at least for as long as you're reading this. Read More
One of the customers at the Atomic Grill Restaurant in Morgantown, West Virginia, requested via UrbanSpoon that, for whatever reason, the servers "show more skin." In retaliation to this absurd complaint, the owner of the restaurant, Dan McCawley, posted a photo advertising a $7.00 potato skin special. Amazing. McCawley said in an interview with ABC that, "It was brutish. I was upset. I'm a father of a 12-year-old girl and I've got five sisters. The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I'm concerned." Right on dude. Read More
In my early days as a restaurant cook, I had nightmares about breakfast. Not about consuming it, but preparing it. That fear had less to do with my hatred of waking up early and more to do with my anxiety over poaching eggs. “Ordering! Five more eggs Benedict!” the expeditor would scream, and I’d crack 30 eggs into the poaching water, hoping 20 of those would turn out edible. Though it took a while before I got my rhythm down, once I did, I became a poached-egg champion. Read More
If you don't know Alex Guarnaschelli, or you do but never knew that was how to spell her name, let's take a minute to appreciate this deeply passionate foodie. Guarnaschelli is (in my humble and totally love-struck opinion) the greatest lady chef on food television, and believe me, I have watched a lot of food television.  Just watch this video:  She talks about food like none other. Seriously, every time she opens her mouth about food she is writing a beautiful poetic verse in honor of flavor. Read More

Roasted pumpkin is one of the best fall foods, and it comes alive when smothered in chimichurri, an Argentinian sauce usually reserved for steak. Chimichurri is similar to pesto in that it’s full of fresh puréed herbs; this version combines parsley and cilantro with pepitas and a healthy dose of red wine vinegar for a thick, nutty sauce with a serious hit of acidity. The contrast of the sweet autumnal pumpkin with the intensely herbal chimichurri is killer. And black beans are a natural addition that pulls everything together. Read More
