Earlier today, I was shopping with some friends from college. I’m a dreaded “death fat” at 5’2 and 300 pounds. My friends are slightly smaller fats, but we still share the common struggle of fashionable clothing not being available in our size. We…

Atrocious behavior on the part of the restaurant. I also want to know which restaurant that is.

Without knowing the person who wrote this, I am 90% sure that she subtly told us the restaurant. This line: “I sat and waited with the mind numbing embarrassment of a woman shamed at a ‘friendly’ restaurant.” Operative word: Friendly

I have a big jar of Harissa in my fridge…

Do you have any advice/recipes to share that would help me use this up?

It’s so ludicrous when people w/cooking blogs name their recipes using every ingredient…

Rice flour, oatmeal, bran, sunflower seed, olive bread. Or some such.

I just saw: “tomato, feta, avocado, olive oil, garlic salt dip”

Seriously?

MSNBC just reported on celebrity cookbooks

I’m simultaneously repulsed at the idea that this is considered “news” and quickly clamoring to get Stanley Tucci’s cookbook on my amazon wish list.

Yeah! Who’s the asshole American now??
