1. The Pill – Honor the pregnancy-free Halloween hook up with this simple pumpkin design. All you need to do is pour yourself a drink and carve a big ol’ circle. More ambitious pumpkin carvers can attempt to carve the entire pill pack. Pro tip: Sketch your circle before hand using the bottom of a glass.  2. The Vagina – Not all women have vaginas, but all women can have a vagina jill-o-lantern. Your living room window sill will never look more urethral. Looking to step up your game? Go for the more complex anatomic novelty – the uterus. Read More

If you were ever categorized as “basic” by the Internet, perhaps you are lamenting the loss of pumpkin in your diet this fall as you construct a less PSL-dependent existence. Whatever, HATERS GONNA HATE. The lack-o’-jack-o’-lantern food is a shame given the pulpy nutrients inside: one cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin has 245% of your daily vitamin A and 16% of your daily potassium (not that you were getting that in your latte). Don’t give up on that pumpkin. Read More
Gumbo is a New Orleans treat that is hard to match. Due to National Gumbo Day approaching fast (yes, it's a thing!), this Sunday, October 12 to be exact, I have complied some recipes to try if you can't make it to the soulful NOLA.

Type one is based on okra the African vegetable, and two, is thickened with gumbo file, which is powdered sassafras leaves, which has a Native American descent. Read More
