What began as a Twitter joke is slowly turning into another social media campaign, this time aiming to give low-income families access to abortions. Will it catch one the same way as the ALS ice bucket challenge?
Because there’s never enough Top Chef, so says Bravo, we are now privy to the newest of the franchise spin-offs: Top Chef Duels. Let’s get the cockfight going and see who wins these battle of the brawn — er, culinary challenges — of the season.
It's summer, it's a holiday, and everyone always loves an excuse to eat. It makes sense, then, that one of the most popular ways to celebrate Labor Day weekend is by having a backyard cookout. But grilling can be tricky, if not totally intimidating -- what will your mother-in-law think of your fish marinade? What if you overcook your uncle's burger? -- so why not turn to the experts. Operating under the notion that if one is good, ten is better, we put together come of the best grilling tips from ten of our favorite celebrity chefs.
Recently, Men’s Health ran a contest to find the nine most manly restaurants in America, seeking the most testosterone-y joints in categories such as barbecue, pizza, steak, tacos, and “adventurous eating” (think Chris Cosentino). Though they were only trying to celebrate manhood, some media watchdogs claimed that they were labeling foods by gender. What is it, the New York Timesasked, that made all these foods manly, “when so many millions of women are fond of barbecue, pizza, steak, tacos, burgers, sandwiches and brew pubs”?

So when the Times wondered whether a womanly magazine would front their own contest celebrating culinary womanliness, we at the Braiser put our ovaries together and came up with our own list of the nine womanliest restaurants in America, celebrating the yummy things that make up womanhood: marriage, friendship, shopping, and expressing our emotions. Have a night out at these restaurants with your gastronomic gal pals — as long as you’re not being visited by Auntie Flo! Are we right, ladies?
