Her rich roots and passion for culinary arts were inspired by cooking with her grandmother at a very young age; years later, she’d moonlight in the hospitality industry after earning…
Go nuts over 20% off a 12-pack of snack-sized bags of raw almonds, a 3-pack of 24-ounce bags, and a 12-pack of mini salt and pepper-flavored bags today. As far as snack foods go, pistachios are the most delicious, and not too bad for you either. Just remember, the final discounted price won’t show up until checkout,…
Step away from the grills, people. It’s cold outside! Based on the temperatures I’ve been experiencing here in New York City, winter is already here. And while I love fried and smoked food as much as the next person, I’d like to keep my limbs frostbite-free if possible. Admittedly, I also don’t have a backyard.
Some of us are looking forward to burying our faces in Christmas dinner with friends and family in a brief 10 days. Hopefully, your dinner will be blessed with someone who has gifted culinary hands when it comes to baked macaroni and cheese—and I’m not talking about the disrespectful and disgusting remakes making the…
A Sacramento, Calif., restaurant owner is wondering what the hell happened after the chef known for his screaming whiteness invaded her restaurant with his reality show and splashed Caucasianery all over everything.
I’m not a foodie. I have no aspirations to be referred to as somebody with a, hmm, awesome (?) palate. I don’t know what you call people with distinguished (?) palates. I had to look up how to properly spell palate right there. I eat what pleases me and will order it over and over again until I find a new thing that…
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is literally in just a few days. It seems like only yesterday that summer was lighting a literal fire under so many folks’ asses. But here we are. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday: You get good food and fellowship with family and friends.
Igloo’s Daytripper bags, unlike some of the competition, won’t keep your ice frozen until the next presidency, but they will arm you for a complete picnic, and do so in style.
In my quest to become a whole, functioning human being, I have been going through a yearslong process of undoing and unpacking the subconscious biases and fears that created the person who could never be described any funnier or more succinctly than by my line brother, who once said:
I was recently in Roanoke, Ala., and ventured to McDonald’s because my children are obsessed with chicken nuggets like most American children are. I don’t know what they put in those things, but they’re mm-mm good. Also, how have fast-food prices been the same forever? Inquiring minds would like to know.
This is Unpopular Opinions, a weekly romp through the Gizmodo Media Group staff’s personal Slack conversations that boldly reveal scandalous opinions that many would deem unpopular. So, basically it’s a conversation that proclaims, We schaid what we schaid.

If this weren't a real thing that was really actually happening, the concept of a 90's style hip-hop fried chicken restaurant created by White people in the hood would make for a cute and clever Chappelle or Key & Peele skit.
In this age of foot-faced presidential swampdonkeys, culture vulturing ho-ass racial stowaways, and mediocrity-masking alternative facts, a number of things are inarguable:
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Yes, you receive gifts during Christmas, and Easter was great because you got chocolate candy, but Thanksgiving? Nah, Thanksgiving has always been the gift that keeps on giving.
Newly acquired Utah Jazz point guard George Hill was on a walk one day when he saw a group of homeless men, women and children. Moved by the sight, he walked to a local Wendy's and purchased bags of burgers and fries and bottled water and walked back to the location, where he handed out his purchases. He sat and…

Johnson, Nyesha Arrington, Paul Carmichael, Preston Clark, Ebow Dadzie and Kwame Onwuachi, along with prolific sommelier Luvo Ntezo and Bacardi's Colin Asare-Appiah, brought together their incredible palate-pleasing talents to honor the late legendary chef Patrick Clark with the…
Let’s just cut to the chase. I hate sharing. Yes, everything I needed to learn in life I absolutely learned in kindergarten. And yes, sharing was at the top of that list.
This past weekend, my delegation of Black friends here in Panama and I, all homesick and missing starchy Southern goodness, decided to tear da kitchen up and assemble like Black ass high-calorie Voltron for an elaborate, Itis-friendly Sunday dinner.
