http://nothing-found.com/2014/09/28/a-fridge-in-sao-paulo-brazil-20-something-fridges/If the eye is the window to the soul, is the fridge the welcome mat to our culinary heritage, cheap snacks, and bad food metaphors?

Cheese Alert: An Open Letter to my Pregnant Sisterfeatured

http://nothing-found.com/2014/09/17/cheese-alert-an-open-letter-to-my-pregnant-sister/ Dear Tata, I didn’t like you for a long time. You were loud, domineering, you swallowed the whole room when you walked in with your demands, complaints – sometimes the best stories, of course I filled with envy.
