  These book-inspired food blogs are totally lit Few literary scenes are as memorable as those that conjure a good meal. Remember the mayonnaise-and-tomato sandwiches from Harriet the Spy? Or the key lime pie that lands in the face of a cheating husband in Heartburn? Luckily for ravenous readers, a growing community of “literary food bloggers” is providing a delightful Venn diagram of book club–worthy reads and Instagram-ready eats. Madeleines from Swann's Way via thelittlelibrarycafe.com Kate Young of The Little Library Café and Bryton Taylor of Food in Literature, take...

I’ve always been good at finding ways to make extra cash. Whether it was teaching aerobics classes in college, writing the occasional article for dance magazines, or working at Starbucks on the weekends after I graduated college and had a full-time job, I’ve never been afraid of hard work. For a short time during my marriage, I only had one job, which felt strange after working two to three since I was sixteen. Leaving my ex was hard for multiple reasons, not the least of...

Poster from @isntfuctionart If ever there was a day to eat your feelings, today is it. In honor of #NATIONALCHEEESEDAY, here is some food that won't fix anything, but might just make the pain go away for a bit. Mac 'n' Cheese, what can I say, gooey all over, golden and silky smooth. It has the carbs that cradle your stomach and the cheese that tells your brain everything is going to be okay, because as studies show, cheese induces the same effects as heroin.

  Ditch the couch. Online therapy might be just the virtual support you need. My apartment floor has sprouted a giant crack like a vortex into the underworld, my daughter’s day care will be closed indefinitely for renovations, I’m working on three back-to-back projects as BUST’s events manager, and my narcissistic mom is making for some not-so-happy holidays. This typical barrage of stressors makes having a licensed therapist a necessity. But after trying one-on-one, in-person therapy, I found out there’s an app for that, which suits me...
While many of us will want to drown our sorrows this Inauguration Day, some people are a little more proactive about it. Kelissa Hieber, head brewer at Goldspot Brewing, and Bess Dougherty, another Denver-based brewer, wanted to push back at the climate of hate and oppression that has been festering anew in the past few months. They organized a group of like-minded women brewers in Denver to concoct Makin’ Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer, which will be tapped on Jan. 20. Donations from the proceeds will...
  In a corner, in the North Side Chicago neighborhood of Roger’s Park is a small, unassuming, but mighty cultural icon known as the Heartland Cafe. Opening its doors in 1976 as a celebration of the bicentennial, the Heartland Cafe’s mission was to serve wholesome food for the mind and body. Forty years later, the Heartland Cafe has not lost its activist and political roots. Many political candidates have held rallies and speeches there, including one young man who held rallies in 2004 when he ran...
Lukas Garber* was a redheaded boy in my grade I’d known since pre-kindergarten. We’d both attended the same Catholic school from the age of 4 up until the 8th grade. Every year, I had nearly zero space for reflections on Jesus because it had all been packed with endless thoughts and daydreams of him. During our first communion, while everyone was supposed to be thinking about formally accepting Christ into their lives, I was wondering if my white dress meant that our priest would join...
The controversial Azealia Banks is once again in the social media spotlight for a video she posted on Instagram. The video shows Banks getting ready to clean out her closet in which she has practiced Brujeria for the past three years. After seeing the closet caked in chicken blood, feathers, and some black stuff we can’t figure out, theVinternet of course went wild. But why was everyone so shocked to learn that Banks had been sacrificing chickens? The artist, as problematic as she may be,...

2016 supposedly saw the hope of the first female President of the United States. Feminists all across the world had hope in their eyes for a symbol of changing times and a new era for women within the political sphere. But the 1st of January marks the sunset of a queen that embodied such hope over 40 years before Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Born in the cold winter of 1924 in Brooklyn, New York to immigrant domestic and factory service workers from the Caribbean, Shirley Anita...
