Hey Ken Jeong, is a hot dog a sandwich? Hey Ken Jeong, is a hot dog a sandwich?

Honest question: Does Ken Jeong’s response to this, our favorite thing to ask famous people, carry more weight because he’s also a licensed physician? He’s a man of science! Surely when it comes to the issue of hot dogs and sandwiches, that must count for something.

Our favorite holiday cookie recipes, pt. 4: Russian tea cakes Our favorite holiday cookie recipes, pt. 4: Russian tea cakes

I find baking very soothing—for the most part. Like 90 percent soothing. Maybe 75 percent. Still, mostly soothing. First and foremost in the pro column, in the winter at least, is basically everything having to do with the oven. The gorgeous aroma! The waves of warmth! Nostalgia! All that. Wonderful.

A field guide to celebrity alcohols: Like regular booze, but famous A field guide to celebrity alcohols: Like regular booze, but famous

When he makes good choices, I’m kinda proud, like I was somehow involved? It makes no sense. But it also means that when I read that he had…

You can now order a stylish pin to commemorate the time IHOP “changed” its “name” You can now order a stylish pin to commemorate the time IHOP “changed” its “name”

Remember back when IHOP told the world it was changing its name to IHOB, but wouldn’t say why, and everyone assumed the “b” was for “breakfast,” when really it stood both for “burgers” and “brazen marketing stunt”? Yeah, that was this year. It’s been a long few months, friends.

But hey, here’s another to toss onto the pile, this time courtesy of delivery service Postmates. On its entertaining (and perhaps somewhat…

Chrissy Teigen is a busy lady. Among the many items on her plate (that’s a pun, because she also has a line of kitchenware at Target): supermodel, television personality, creator of very charming Christmas specials, top-tier Twitter follow, parenting her kids and being married to handsome singing husband John Legend,…

London restaurant M. Victoria has opened a club that will, until Christmas Eve, cater to an incredibly specific clientele. (They’ll close after that, because the regulars are busy.)
