On Gwyneth Paltrow GOOPs Up Food Stamps

I have read the same reference to that one shopping trip about half a dozen times, and I am burning with curiosity for the next installment of the story. The week is almost up—when is Gwynnie going to share her experience/reaction/recipes? I want to know what she did with all those limes!

On Cards Against Humanity For STEM

My beef with Cards Against Humanity is that you're basically outsourcing the humor portion of the evening. I prefer games like Loaded Questions, where people make their own jokes.

On Convenient Cooking, But at a Cost

@Theestablishment One thing I do is, I do a lot of the prep work the night before, so all I have to do when I get home from work is throw everything into a pan (or call ahead and have my husband preheat the oven). We switch off nights cooking, so it's not like it consumes my every waking moment.

On Convenient Cooking, But at a Cost

I cheat by looking at the recipes on Blue Apron's website and using them as a basis for weekly menu planning. Although most of the recipes don't really appeal to me anyway, so this is not a service I would ever use.

On Future Marketers May Try to Capitalize on Our Initials

There was an Emerald Nuts ad campaign a while back that focused on their initials ("Envious Nomads love... Emerald Nuts") which really spoke to me, because my initials are EN. They never called for my endorsement, though.
