Recipes That Prove That Humans Are Monsters

  I feel pretty gross and guilty for my mayo-cheese-and-sriracha sandwiches. That’s what they are. Gluten free bread, a thick layer of Kewpie mayo on both slices, a hearty drizzle of Sriracha hot sauce, and two slices of Provolone cheese. I’m a bad person. I’m disgusting. This is my favorite[…]

“So, What DO You Eat?”

  Hello, my name is Meghan. I am a gluten-free pescetarian. (Hello, Meghan!)   I stopped eating gluten four years ago, right after my 29th birthday. No diagnosis. Actually, a doctor told my mom to stop eating (so much) gluten and I, in the throes of debilitating heartburn and diarrhea[…]

I’m Not Sorry About My ‘Feelings’ About This Hot Pockets Commercial

  Intrigued? I know I am. This commercial, to me, is just dripping in weird toxic masculinity code.  WATCH IT!:   What is this ad saying, basically? That if you’re a dude, you’re busy doing DUDE things. Otherwise, there would be a female platonic friend wearing a VR headset on that sofa! But Nope,[…]

I Invented A Pasta, Don’t @ Me

Yeah, I invented a pasta.   I’m going on record as saying that I invented this pasta because I had a craving for something salty and carb-y during my last menstrual period and I let my uterus pick the ingredients. And my uterus was eyeing that bag of brown rice pasta from[…]

Yes, I’m An Egg-cellent Cook

There’s a little saying that goes, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” And when life hands you eggs and a fridge full of nothin’ but leftovers, you make BRUNCH. Aw yes, folks, I’ve been cooking. That’s right. ME! Cooking on the fly, making up recipes. And I’m going to share the wealth[…]

Menstrual Cycling

“Isn’t it weird how your period transforms you into Wonder Woman?”  my friend texted as my uterine lining erupted out of me like hot magma out of Krakatoa. Wonder Woman?  Is everyone else’s menses making them super-strong and giving them invisible jets? That’s right, I’m talking about my period again![…]

I’m Sorry, But You’re Wrong

  So I was coming home from a long day at my internship wherein I got really caught up in A Thing and didn’t really eat lunch.  Well I did eat one of those KIND bars – the one I keep in my bag for an emergency – but that’s[…]

Rainy Sunday Morning Update

First off, thanks for all your kind comments, tweets, and (mom) concerned texts about my cold – can’t say I’m 100% yet, but I feel like I’m sloooooowly getting better! Aside from work and doctor’s visits, I’ve been laying pretty low at home, but I had my first social venture[…]

I’m Sick of Being Sick!

What did you get for Christmas?  I got the longest-lasting cold!!  I brought it back to New York City with me and maybe I didn’t treat it right: On the first day of sickness, I went to the hospital (for my dermatology appointment, more on that later!) and sat for[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Holiday Recommendations

I’m going to be completely honest with you (like uh, when am I ever not?) and say, I have no idea what this prompt means, taken as a whole.  BUT, taken one piece at a time: “Holiday” and “Recommendations,” I gather it means “Tell People What To Do This Holiday.” […]

What’s The Weirdest Thing You’ve Ever Eaten?

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!  Meaning that all across the country, Americans are getting psyched and ready to stuff their faces full of holiday foods and I’m over here making you lose your appetites. All my life I’ve sworn “I will never eat bugs!”  I also said I’d never do a lot[…]

QUIZ! Which Thanksgiving Food Are You?

1.  What do you wear to Thanksgiving Dinner? A.  Well, if I have time, I’m going to change out of this apron and into a nice outfit. B.  Call me when the food’s ready, I’m still wearing the pajamas I slept in. C.  Are jeans too casual?  I should wear[…]

25 Pet Peeves

Oh, boy, did I unload here!  Let’s get to it:  Darling Stewie (that’s her blog name and me being jocundly affectionate) posted a list of 25 Pet Peeves as a “Doggy Bag” post!  So I drank two Frangelicos, lit some incense, and purged my 25 biggest pet peeves out into[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Favourite Seasonal Foods

Yay for 5 Fandom Friday!  As a gluten-free-pescetarian, I probably have a very different list from most people?  I don’t get to have fun with cookies, or pie, and I don’t eat turkey and stuffing, but there are certain treats that I always look forward to enjoying around the holidays!![…]

Soup-er Bowl

Now that our World Series hopes have been dashed, we can finally focus on FOOTBALL SEASON!  Me?  I used to feign excitement over football in high school, during marching band, when sitting through games was part of the deal.  After trying (and failing!) to get boys to pay attention to[…]

Greenpointing II

Four months after moving to Greenpoint and the weather is perfect.  Just right to go kick some things off the Greenpoint bucket list!  You know, explore as far as possible, eat at the restaurants you  keep saying you’re going to, and drink Bloody Marys because that’s what weekends are for.[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Girls Just Wanna Have Pumpkin!

It’s that time of year!  Time for Pumpkin Everything.  Ornamental gourds?  CHECK.  Coffee-flavoured beverages?  CHECK.  Grab your nearest infinity scarf and strap on those black leggings, it’s time to go pumpkin picking!  Not real pumpkins, hello, what do you think this is, Long Island?  Aw.  Hell.  Naw.  This is Brooklyn,[…]

Brooklyn’s Best Bloody Marys

If your 20’s are all about mimosas, then your 30’s are the decade you finally appreciate the boldness of the Bloody Mary.  Clearly the more sophisticated of the brunch cocktails, the best ones come with a kick and so much garnish you can’t even find your straw.  If you’re brunching[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Cross My Heart

Oh my clever title…this week’s topic is “Crossovers that would cause my heart to explode” (get it?)  and while I’ve never been one for the crossovers (Why does Angel gotta come back to Buffy?  LEAVE LEAVE LEAVE NOW), I can think of a couple that might be fun to watch…[…]
