• Hey kids, I've got a slight cold and when that happens, I cannot function, as all of my efforts must be spent screaming for more hot toddies, ringing bells for service (read: more screaming), and watching Downton Abbey. Let's just get this thing done so I can go back to crying to Mariah Carey's christmas album. Also, binge-eating soy nog cheesecake. Crucial for fighting cold. Now, on with the show!

• Quorn, everyone's favorite English purveyor of vegetarian meats made from magic, is finally introducing a vegan burger. Sorry, vegetarians, vegans are taking away your options and we are not sorry. Go cry into whatever egg-and-cheese pie you're eating, and GOOD DAY, SIR.

Zachary's is now making vegan pizza! This is the stuff I grew up on, and it holds a special place in my heart as the most delicious pizza of all time. I highly recommend you try the vegan slices because damn, it is DELICIOUS. Rich, buttery crust, and a tomato sauce that'll make you slap your mama.

Eliza Dushku is going vegan. For now. Check back next week when she'll be only be eating animals she thinks she could have a good conversation with. Celebrities!

• Make and eat this gluten-free, soy-free alfredo sauce from planet delicious. And then also make some for me, too, because I'm a good person, and deserve happiness via alfredo sauce.

Design a t-shirt for Tofurky and win $1 million. ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

Rats feel empathy, are kind to their buddies, and are generally better than humans. The fact that we test tons of bullshit things on them makes me want to ring by bell for a shot gun so I can murder everyone. JK, not everyone, I love my dogs.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
