Ina Garten continues to be an inspiration in so many ways – culinary, of course, but I also love her philosophy on life, career, and knowing when to say “yes” and when to say “no.” (via Eater)

Fall wouldn’t be complete without a seasonally appropriate reading of this classic, and comedically expletive-filled McSweeney’s piece. It is decorative gourd season and now you can celebrate with a commemorative mug.

Bradley Cooper’s new movie Burnt about a Michelin star-seeking chef looks interesting, but what I’m really anticipating is the new Bond movie: Spectre…! (via Wired; YouTube)

Bon Appétit asked Sloane Crosley, author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake, about her morning routine. Her book that made me laugh out loud as I read it, and now that I know about her love of cereal I’m pretty sure we’re kindred spirits.

In this, the season of pumpkin spice, it seemed appropriate to introduce you to Pumpkin the Raccoon. Yes, I feel ridiculous following a raccoon who already has 253,000 followers on Instagram. But, look at that face! Also, the images are hilarious and well-shot, so. (via Bored Panda)
