I love this
"you come here often?"
"hey baby did it hurt when you fell from heaven-"
"FAVOR THE BOW, EH? I’M A SWORD MAN MYSELF"
"hey let me buy you a drin-"
"LET ME GUESS: SOMEONE STOLE YOUR SWEET ROLL?"
"I LIKE SHORTS! THEY’RE COMFY AND EASY TO WEAR!"
"SOMETIMES, I DREAM ABOUT CHEESE"
”are you an angel becau-”
”Talos the Mighty! Talos the unerring! Talos the unassailable! To you we give Praise! We are but maggots writhing in the filth of our own corruption! While you have ascended from the dung of mortality, and now walk among the stars! But you were once man! Aye! And as man you said, “Let me show you the power of Talos Stormcrown, born of the North, where my breath is long winter. I breathe now in royalty and reshape this land which is mine. I do this for you, Red Legions, for I love you.” Aye, love! Love! Even as man, great Talos cherished us. For he saw in us, in each of us, the future of Skyrim! The future of Tamriel! And there it is, friends! The ugly truth! We are the children of man! Talos is the true god of man! Ascended from flesh, to rule the realm of spirit! The very idea is inconceivable to our Elven overlords! Sharing the heavens with us? With man? Ha! They can barely tolerate our presence on earth! Today, they take away your faith. But what of tomorrow? What then? Do the elves take your homes? Your businesses? Your children? Your very lives? And what does the Empire do? Nothing! Nay, worse than nothing! The Imperial machine enforces the will of the Thalmor! Against its own people! So rise up! Rise up, children of the Empire! Rise up, Stormcloaks! Embrace the word of mighty Talos, he who is both man and Divine! For we are the children of man! And we shall inherit the heavens and earth! And we, not the Elves or their toadies, will rule Skyrim! Forever!”
Every time I see this, it makes me happy.

We had a lot of fun reading and cooking through Afro Vegan, a brand new cookbook out by Bryant Terry. Our full review is in the latest issue of Chickpea Magazine, but we were also given permission to share a couple recipes from the book here with you!
I’ve been looking for a few perfect springtime BBQ recipes, and the two we picked from the book would make really wonderful sides/snacks/finger foods for a backyard cookout. We just had one of those cookouts this weekend and are so excited to cook outdoors more often. I’ll be making these for our next one!
ZA’ATAR-ROASTED RED POTATOES
Makes about 4 servings
- 2 pounds small to medium red potatoes, cut into ½-inch chunks
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons za’atar, homemade (page 15) or store-bought
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
- ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Put the potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Toss until the potatoes are evenly coated. Transfer to the lined baking sheet and spread, cut side down, in a single layer (no need to clean the bowl). Bake for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine the za’atar, thyme, oregano, salt, and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the reserved bowl and stir well to combine.
- Transfer the potatoes to the bowl (leave the oven on) and toss gently until evenly coated. Return the potatoes, cut side up, to the baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Bake for about 15 minutes, until fork-tender.
- Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the lemon juice and season with black pepper and, if desired, more salt. Serve at room temperature.
These potatoes are so perfectly seasoned and crispy - I’ll be making these quite often from now on.
SAUTEED SUGAR SNAP PEAS WITH SPRING HERBS
Makes about 4-6 servings
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
- 1 teaspoon minced flat-leaf parsley
- 1 teaspoon minced cilantro
- 1 ½ teaspoons coarse sea salt
- 1 ½ pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
- 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Freshly ground white pepper
- 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, toasted (see sidebar, page 119)
- Put the chives, parsley, and cilantro in a small bowl and mix well.
- Put about 12 cups of water in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the salt, then add the sugar snap peas and blanch for 30 seconds. Drain well.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the peas and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, increase the heat to high, and cook, shaking the pan and tossing vigorously, for about 1 minute.
- Transfer to a large bowl, add the orange zest and lemon juice, and toss until the peas are evenly coated. Serve topped with the chive mixture, a few grinds of white pepper, and the sesame seeds.
These are the simplified versions of the full recipes from the book, which I highly suggest checking out. (It’s available digitally and in print, for those of you who don’t want physical books.) I think his stories & recipe accompaniments are the best parts of the book, along with all of the whole foods, perfectly-spiced recipes of course.

Good job, Stiles, almost shoot your best friend in the eye with a crossbow.
This is why I wonder how you’ve lived this long.
Fun Fact: Becoming a werewolf also apparently brings out your inner asshole, as evidenced by both Derek and Erica, with occasional appearances by the otherwise statistical outlier Scott.
Okay, what’s the deal with the chem teacher? Because he’s this really freaky cross between sadistic and creepy, and it’s kinda freaking me out.
Allison is looking at Scott like he’s making out with Lydia in the middle of chemistry. What is this, fifth grade?
(Seriously, he just sat down.)
