Ask almost anyone and they’ll tell you that junk mail is the worst invention since hair in a can. But not 12-year-old Mathew Flores. In fact, up until recently, it was the only thing he had to read.
A lot of people turn up their noses at the mention of vegan food, but you know what? Vegan food is simply food (and delicious food at that) except it doesn’t contain animal products.
These cookbooks show that plant-based meals are not only nutritious and delicious enough to win over vegans and carnivores alike, but also easy, affordable, and accessible.
Based off the hugely popular, award-winning blog Oh She Glows, Angela Liddon brings the same recipes featuring animal-free recipes and drool-worthy photography from her blog to the cookbook that will please both vegans and omnivores.
If you’re thinking, “Oh, I can just get Dad another tie this year for Father’s Day,” think again.

And we know that every dad is different, so we’ve given you suggestions in a variety of different areas of interest and price, so there’s a little bit for everyone.
Do the right thing, folks…
1. Frying doesn’t have to be messy…
The T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Deep Fryer is perfect for the dad who loves to fry up some hot wings, but hates having to do all the messy cleaning afterwards.
As any book lover knows, there’s nothing like feeling the weight of a physical book in your hands.
E-readers are an amazing technological development — we certainly don’t miss the days of packing five books for a weekend vacation “just in case” — but they’re not the same.
Unfortunately, environmentally-speaking, paper books are just terrible…until now.
Haylie Duff may have grown up in front of the camera playing fictional characters like Sandy Jameson (on 7th Heaven) and Summer Wheatley (in Napoleon Dynamite), but it’s her real life in front of the camera that keeps her busy now.
With the second season of her cooking show The Real Girl’s Kitchen now airing on Cooking Channel (Saturdays at 1 PM ET), we sat down with Haylie Duff to discuss cooking, motherhood, Napoleon Dynamite, and much more.
And be sure to check out one of Haylie’s own favorite recipes at the very end of the story!

Reading is awesome. So much so, in fact, that you are doing it right now. And the best way to instill a love of the written word into the young and moldable minds of youth is to offer the joy of books to them at an early age.
While that sounds good in theory, it can take a slightly disturbing turn when the books either intentionally or unintentionally convey a message that might be “questionable.” Sometimes it’s the name, sometimes it’s the cover, and sometimes it’s just weirdly inexplicable creepy feeling.
Some of these writers may have had good intentions, but a lot of these books take a really strange approach to teaching children how to deal with adult-themed dilemmas.
Don’t believe me? Check out 25 of the most questionable kids books ever.
If a Peacock Finds a Pot Leaf
Well, I guess that’s one way to explain why he sees so many pretty colors.
Did you know that Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s baby was on the first cover of TV Guide? Or that Marilyn Monroe graced the first cover of Playboy? (It’s probably a good thing they didn’t get those two mixed up.)
At any rate, magazines have come a long way — along with their covers. We’ve rounded up 30 of the most popular magazines to show you what they looked like at the very beginning…
Have you ever wondered how Disney came up with such wonderful stories? Even their oldest films still resonate with children and adults to this day.
For the most part, Disney stories are adaptations of classic fairy tales and novels from decades and sometimes centuries ago. And many of these, as it turns out, are actually horrifying, depressing, and just plain weird.
The Fox and The Hound
Copper and Tod, a hound and a fox, grow up living right next to each other. The unlikely pair struggle to preserve their friendship, despite their emerging instincts and the surrounding peer pressure demanding them to be enemies, but they remain best friends forever.
Let’s just rip off the bandaid, and jump right in with what may be the most distressing thing you read today.
You know the story of The Lord of the Rings, but do you know the story of just…the rings? If not, let C.G.P. Grey take five minutes and catch you up on the shadowy mythology of Tolkien’s titular jewelry…
It wasn’t that long ago when a person who was curious about something either had to forget about it and move on or actually do some research. And sometimes this research involved — horror of horrors — asking another human being about the topic at hand. There was no option to quietly and privately inquire of Google.
The closest approximation to the magic of the internet was to call the public library and ask your question to the local librarian. And while they wouldn’t ordinarily laugh at you outright, they were still sometimes secretly amused. And occasionally they’d write down your question for posterity’s sake. (That is, so that your posterity could laugh at you.)
That’s what librarians at the New York Public Library did, anyway. And now they are sharing many of the questions they received from the 1940’s and onward.
Here are some of the best.
