One thing I’ve learned is that adults love to be treated like children, and nothing feeds your inner child more than eating classic breakfast cereals in unexpected ways. Here are some delicious dishes to get your kid on. Corn Flake-Crusted Mac ‘n’ Cheese Fritters Boil a 16-ounce package of elbow macaroni until al dente. Drain and set aside. In a deep,...
  Much like Drew Barrymore’s Josie Grossie in Never Been Kissed, there may have been a time when you’ve bitten off more of a marijuana edible than you can chew, so to speak. Having suffered the consequences (i.e., maybe felt like you were in the dimension between life and death, cried like a baby, only talked in a whisper voice for two hours, or, as in Josie’s case, danced with a feather boa and ate an entire pie?), it wouldn’t be surprising if you’ve sworn them...

In the weeks after doomsday (aka the 2016 presidential election), Liz Alpern felt all the feels—confusion, fear, blindsided despair. So she looked for comfort in the things she knows best: food and community. Alpern, 33, is a business owner, food educator (she co-runs The Gefilteria, an artisanal Jewish food company), and organizing powerhouse within Brooklyn’s queer community. And she had a hunch that soup might serve as the healing balm and rallying force she and others needed. “I’d always dreamed of hosting a queer soup pop-up,”...

Crunchy, chewy, salty,sweet, and customizable—the humble handmade popcorn ball is a festive fall treat that deserves a comeback.

Talking her way into any cooking job she could get. A self-taught and self-made Rossi ended...
From our August/September 2018 issue, Chef Rossi shares recipes for three perfect dishes to pair with rosé.    As a teen on the Jersey shore, I thought rosé only came one way: cheap, sickeningly sweet, and meant to be consumed on the beach by passing a large glass jug around. But on my first trip to Spain, I noticed everyone ordering rosé. I relented and got a glass, too. Surprise! It wasn’t the sugar sweet backwash of my childhood; this pale pink wine was dry and crisp...
