This story by a guy who went with his girlfriend to barre class. I just about died reading this because he is completely interchangeable for most husbands and boyfriends out there. Hilarious.

Running out of chocolate? This cannot be true. I’m sad about this so I need to console myself with chocolate. Oh wait…

I love this Spicy Pasta with Broccoli and Turkey. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers.

The United States of Thanksgiving. Do you agree on your state’s dish? I beg to differ for Maryland…
