MOAR ADVENTURES IN BAKING
Welcome to Adventures in Baking, aka the ANGRY CHEF. Above is the shit I tried to make tonight, which went kind of well but not really? Who knows. Who am I to judge my own food! Anyway, this is a Smitten Kitchen recipe again, this time for pumpkin muffins. I decided to try and make these because a) I felt like baking, oddly, b) the recipe seemed easy enough not to screw up (ahaha), and c)...
when your building’s fire alarm goes off on sunday...
(image via swagpony) CLOSE THE PORN No, seriously, close it, and then close the laptop, then set it aside because it might form an allegiance with the fire (if it hasn’t already) and you’re not prepared to deal with that kind of treachery when you’re not wearing pants. Realize the alarm stopped. Rush up from the couch and put on a shirt. Think for a second. A long, hard second. Really...

ADVENTURES IN BAKING FOR MENZ OR OTHER FOLKS
So, listen. Anyone knows that if you want to get a manz, you have to know how to bake him a pie. And it can’t be a pie that will murder him because then you’ll have no manz. So, with that in mind—and also mainly because I got invited to a dinner party and was asked to bring dessert and I yearn to impress people who probably couldn’t care less—I decided to bake something this...

Philly’s been named by GQ as the sixth worst-dressed city in America. As a native NYer, I’m not surprised by this; whenever I wear black, I get at least three comments about how I am “sooooo New York,” which leads me to believe that no one ever taught Buttsadelphians that black is a) always stylish, b) slimming, and c) the opposite of white and therefore not an unusual...
