Photo: Nitr (Shutterstock), Image: Haryadi CH (Shutterstock) We, as a society, do a lot of things to and with french fries. The United States plunges them into ketchup (and sometimes mustard), the UK splashes them with malt vinegar, a good portion of Europe dips them in mayo, and Canadians drown them in gravy. We cover them in chili, cheese, and chili-cheese, and some people swirl them in ranch dressing, but you rarely—if ever—see them dipped in butter, which is weird when you consider that french […]

The 2023 models of the famous muscle cars will be the last new ones you’ll be able to buy unless they revive the model down the, uh, road.

While users mostly focus on icon packs, widgets, and launchers, one small, incredibly useful feature often flies under the radar: your ability to add shortcuts right to the home screen. Android introduced the concept of actionable shortcuts years ago, and many popular apps have embraced it. Those are the options you see when you press and hold an app icon on the home screen. For example, a long-press on the icon for the Notes app might […]

If your instinct is to respond to harassers to tell them what’s what, here’s some advice: don’t . In a now deleted post on r/PS4 […]

Beneath the jokes and the self-deprecation, there’s some truth to the art to showing employers that you have a good personality. There’s a lot that goes into charming your interviewers—like with the importance of […]

Netflix, Hulu, et. al. don’t necessarily make this super-easy to do—it should be opt-in, not opt-out—but here’s a guide for how to watch the credits on Netflix, Prime Video, […]

Then one day, you look at your spice rack and notice a thick layer of dust on those bottles, and wonder: Do spices go bad? The answer is a qualified no . Spices never actually spoil, but they do lose their potency over time, eventually becoming pretty useless […]

Photo: Wirestock Creators (Shutterstock) Four years ago, the Campari company launched an aggressive campaign to turn the Aperol Spritz into the drink of the summer. It worked. The vibrant red-orange beverage flooded bar patios everywhere, and while its grip has loosened slightly since 2018, the bubbly cocktail is still very much present . But this year, I noticed a slight modification: Instead of a single orange wheel (or half-moon slice), spritzes are being garnished with briny green olives. Salty olives in a mostly-sweet, slightly bitter […]

Image: Joel Cunningham (Photo: Getty, Vectors: Canva) There’s a problem with crudité platters as a party food. It’s one thing if you eat raw broccoli in private, but if I come to your home expecting food, a platter of raw baby carrots and celery sticks does not count. It’s not the vegetables (I love them for their nutrients, color, and texture). It’s their preparation—as in, there should be some. We should consider what’s going to taste good raw, what should be blanched, and what ingredients […]
