My Slim-Down, Get-Glowing Detox

I knew I needed a change when I hopped on the scale a week after Thanksgiving and the number flashed higher than it had ever been. Granted, it was a few days after I had two Thanksgiving dinners in less than 24 hours, but the persistent tightness of my clothing and my general sluggishness suggested that the extra pounds were more than just a few big dinners. After catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror after a shower one night, I thought to myself, 'I can't possibly be pregnant ... right?' Nope. My food baby had just become a permanent fixture.   read more

It's never a big shocker. As the first blasts of cold air swoop in, your clothes lose some wiggle room and your pants require a bit more muscle-power to close. Blame the dryer all you want, but there's just something about Old Man Winter that makes us sluggish, constantly hungry (for all the wrong things), a little pudgier -- and in need of some diet tips that work.   See tips

Holiday Cocktails for the Hostess Who Hates to Cook

I love the holidays, and I love playing hostess. But one place where my enthusiasm wanes is the kitchen. I don't know about you, but sweating off my makeup over a pan of gravy or spending the next day scrubbing turkey gizzard out from under my nails does not say "fun" to me. Course, that doesn't mean the holidays have to be a total party bust.   read more

Craving Beauty? These Images Will More Than Satisfy You

Sometimes advertising agencies produce lame ads (Sit n' Sleep's "Your killing me, Larry" comes to mind). Sometimes -- as with those his/her couples lubricant spots -- they produce provocative/unsavory ones. And, sometimes, just sometimes, they produce simply beautiful, to the point mini-masterpieces.   read more

American Foods That Have Been Banned in Foreign Countries

Considering the fact that some American "cuisine" (Oh, those Golden Arches) has become ubiquitous abroad, it's interesting to learn that there's a long list of foods that are verboten in other countries.   read more

6 Healthy Swaps for Your Favorite Treats

When you hear the term "emotional eater," what do you usually picture? Probably something straight out of a romantic comedy: A sad sap who just went through a bad breakup, blaring depressing music in the background and shoveling heaping spoonfuls of ice cream into her mouth (straight out of the tub). A good friend may come over eventually, equipped with even more junk food, and the "eat your feelings" mentality continues while the rain pours outside.   read more

Which of these Ridiculously Shocking New Snacks Do You Want?

Anything alcohol-infused is brilliant in our book. The (rather ridiculously named) popcorn company Populence teamed up with a New Zealand winemaker to create a "Sauvignon Blanc Kettle" that incorporates wine into the recipe. According to the site, "the sweet popcorn's final flavor is bright and zesty and pairs beautifully with the wine." Unfortunately, a 1 Gallon Tin will set you back $35. But on the bright side, wine popcorn isn't as bad on the snack scale as, say, Cheetos and beer. And there's something satisfyingly classy about being able to pull a Sauvignon Blanc-flavored snack from your pantry the next time you host a shindig.   read more

I Made A 'Cronut'… And Made Myself Sick

The Dominique Ansel Bakery that created -- and trademarked -- the pop culture phenomenon that is the "cronut" (a croissant-donut hybrid, in case you missed the recent craze) happens to be five blocks from my apartment in New York City. Sadly, that doesn't make me any more likely to get one. There's no preferential treatment for neighbors. Heck, there's no preferential treatment for celebrities. (Rumor has it that Hugh Jackman had to wait on line for more than two hours for his cronuts.)   read more
