Animal welfare can be heavy stuff, but we love that the folks at Vital Farms have a knack for not taking themselves so seriously.

Now it seems the U.S. government might be falling into that second camp. This piece from GOOD breaks down a new piece of legislation called the [...]

We admit to sometimes missing boxed cake mixes. We have, on occasion, glanced longingly at the microwavable mug cake kits by the registers at Starbucks. It’s true. We’re busy, and convenience is a big deal. That’s why we’re bananas over this recipe for gingerbread loaf with coconut glaze, from The Roasted Root. It’s not [...]

Nutella is a no-no, even for people who don’t have food allergies. For starters, it’s got 21 grams of sugar per serving! It also contains palm oil, which we’re trying to avoid as much as possible. But let’s face it, that spread is delicious. So imagine our joy when we found this recipe from [...]

We all had our favorite Halloween candy... Fran was a Butterfinger and Reeses girl, and while Shawna didn't have much of a sweet tooth, she too loved a good peanut butter cup or twix bar. Needless to say, when the stores start stocking Halloween candy in what feels like every nook and cranny of [...]
