I love the idea of a cooking column. I am a trained chef (not in the industry anymore for reasons that are covered pretty extensively in Kitchenette) and I am always looking for an outlet to post recipes, give advice, etc. I don't do molecular gastronomy or any of that crazy intimidating shit - just good, solid, home… » 7/30/14 10:06am Yesterday 10:06am

I don't think Donna Tartt's novels will translate well to screen. Too much relies on characterization and subtle cues in exposition. The Goldfinch is too sprawling and rambling.

But if you're smoking $480/oz high end weed, do you really need the quantity that a joint burns? I find I waste weed when smoking joints and only do it for a big group or for a festival. That said, I do enjoy a good joint or even better, a good blunt. » 7/21/14 9:32am 7/21/14 9:32am

The food thing: I'm not a parent, but I WAS a VERY picky eater from toddler to about third grade. My diet mainly consisted of grilled cheese sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti with meatballs, and biscuits. If my grandmother cooked a vegetable (which meant it was either fried or tasted like bacon) I would eat… » 7/20/14 2:34pm 7/20/14 2:34pm
