Not sure what Dad’s poison is? Try one of these liquors and spend the day making cocktails together. It’ll sure beat catch out in the backyard.

  1. Alberta Rye Whiskey Dark Batch ($30)—Made with of 91% rye, 8% bourbon and 1% sherry, this Canadian spirit will unlock your dad’s inner Mountie.
  2. U’luvka Vodka ($60)— U’luvka is Polish for “legless,” which dates back to the days of kings and their vodka-swilling ways. This premium vodka, aside from coming in one of the coolest bottles this side of the Atlantic, is the perfect sipping vodka for the clear-spirited Dad.
  3. Facundo Exquisito Rum ($120) — This sipping rum will have your papa feeling like Papa Hemingway in no time. Bonus points if he’s got a bushy white beard and the will to go fishing in the Keys.

These next few are Dad-of-the-Year Spirits. Or, they could also just as easily be “I crashed your midlife crisis Camaro and I’m sorry” spirits. Either way, these premium liquors will make you the favorite, hands down.

  1. Tears of Llorona Tequila ($225)— This has been called the “Pappy Van Winkle” of tequila. Give Dad some and he’ll surely be the first to agree, before asking you kindly to leave so he can spend time with his new favorite child.
  2. Speyburn Highland 25-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky ($315)—With hints of toffee, vanilla and oak, this single malt is a masterpiece. It’s the kind of scotch that will make Dad forget all those disappointing tee ball games.
  1. Old Pulteney 35-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky ($740)—What can you really say about a Scotch with this price tag? It will, hands down, be the smoothest thing Dad will have ever sipped. This is the kind of scotch that you’d give if you’re about to tell Pops that the family name is going to end with you and not the kids you’re not going to have.

This recipe finder will give you dinner ideas using what’s in your fridge
Tired of food waste? This site will tell you what to make for dinner using leftover ingredients
man looking in fridge

We've all been there. It's 6:30, you've just gotten home from work, and you stand in front of an open refrigerator, clueless and frustrated. You have no idea what to do with the random ingredients staring back at you. You've been using that beautiful brain all day long and now you have to put on an apron and come up with dinner ideas for you and your family? No thanks.
If you've ever found yourself in this situation, there's now a site for that very problem. It's called Gumbo, and it's a total game-changer. Gumbo takes what you already have in your fridge, and generates tons of recipes using exactly those ingredients. No need for a last-minute trip to the grocery store.

Let's say you open your fridge and see, for example, raw chicken breast, oranges, soy sauce, honey, and green onions. Simply open the Gumbo app and select those items. With one click, dozens of recipes will pop up that feature those ingredients - Healthy Orange Chicken, Zesty Instant Pot Chicken Breasts, Whole Lemon and Honey Chicken Skewers — to name just a few.
No matter how random your assortment of refrigerator finds, Gumbo has a recipe for you. It also can offer recipes that only require one or two additional (yet common) ingredients. Let's say you don't include salt in your search. Chances are, you probably have salt at home. So, if there are recipes that call for everything you selected plus salt, Gumbo will offer that up as an option.
In addition to taking the burden of recipe creation off your plate, Gumbo will also save you money by keeping your food waste in check. A 2020 study from the American Journal of Agricultural Economics found that the average household in the United States wastes 31.9% of its food, or about $1,866 annually. That's an absolutely shocking statistic. But by knowing exactly what to do with the seemingly useless items in our fridge, Gumbo can greatly help cut back on such an enormously wasteful problem.
News of the new app has been spreading over Reddit like wildfire, and people are ecstatic, exclaiming, "Ok this is amazing! I have DREAMT of a site like this and am excited to give it a go! Here's to (hopefully) less food waste!" and "This is freaking amazing! Thank you!!!"
Users of Reddit, we couldn't agree more.

Why it’s so hard to eat healthily, even when you cook at home
Think you're eating healthy? Think again.
study explains why healthy eating is so hard grocery store aisle

Unless you're one of those truly exceptional people who live entirely off the land, growing and harvesting your own fruit and vegetables, tending to your organic farms and animals, chances are you spend a good portion of your time at the grocery store. And while grocery stores carry a plethora of food items that claim to be healthy, unfortunately, in many instances, this just isn't the case.

Try as we might to feed our bodies the best quality ingredients, packed with nutrition and vitamins, it turns out that about 73 percent of the U.S. food supply is ultra-processed, according to recent research from Northeastern University’s Network Science Institute. This means that about three-quarters of the food available to us through grocery stores is made mainly with added fats, starches, sugars, and hydrogenated fats. Oftentimes, also containing additives like artificial colors and flavors or stabilizers.

The surprising states that drink the most wine, beer, and liquor
Who drinks the most wine, liquor, and beer? Apparently the Northeastern states are doing something right

It seems that where you live has a lot to do with what you drink and how much you drink. It also seems that, according to recent data, New Hampshire is a pretty fun place to be. Who knew?

The numbers listed below represent how much of the three categories of adult beverages — beer, wine, and spirits — people consume per capita in their state. And we have to say that the results were pretty surprising. Of course, there are factors to consider that one might not immediately think about. State liquor taxes, for example, vary from state to state, and people who live close to a border may very well cross state lines for a less expensive bottle of brew. New Hampshire's comparably tiny liquor tax probably has something to do with their eyebrow-raising presence so high on each of the three lists. But, of course, frugal, border-crossing shoppers can't possibly make that big of a difference. The only reasonable conclusion, therefore, is that the good people of New Hampshire are just doing life right.
