  1. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Cooking is a form of therapy for me, and while I’ll go to great lengths to avoid cutting corners because most of the time the effort pays off in the form of taste, there are moments when the effort doesn’t reap rewards. As we head toward …

  2. Remember my last ice cream-focused article (are you appreciating my editorial range yet?) where I told you it was my job to pass along any and all life hacks to you? WELP. *DJ Khaled voice* ANOTHER ONE. I read this suggestion in a Lucky Peach magazine (RIP) awhile ago and I’ve been using it ever since. …

  3. If you don’t want to spend the summer in the kitchen but you still want to eat healthy, then I have the perfect recipes for you. With longer days to soak up, I know I don’t want to be stuck inside longer than I have to be. But I don’t want to compromise healthy eating either. …

  4. Brought to you by Artisan Books & Staub

    As Wit & Delight’s resident baker (as the team has recently coined me), I’m always baking late into the night, trying out new recipes in hopes of bringing in yummy dishes to share with the team. When Artisan Books and Staub recently reached out to see if we’d be interested in receiving Alison Cayne’s first comprehensive …

  5. I have had so many ice cream cookie sandwiches in my life that it’s pretty rare one actually makes me stop in my tracks and run across the yard at a company BBQ where I end up awkwardly waiting for the cookie sandwich-bringer to finish a conversation so I can ask him his secret, all the …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. As I write this to you dockside from Northern Minnesota (a highly recommended spot for consuming the below beverage), I have come across something we must discuss. Though it will be a brief discussion, it is dire. I am shook. Why are kids “tubing” on floating chariots in the year of 2017? They are gliding along …

  8. Happy (early) National Ice Cream Day! For those of us with a sweet tooth, July 16th is arguably one of the best days of the year, especially since most of the country is in the midst of a 90-degree heatwave. So you better believe most of us at the studio will be whipping up, buying, and consuming …

  9. PHOTOS BY: 2ND TRUTH

    They say to keep an open mind when running a business, because as much as you can plan for the future, sometimes the future has different plans. A year ago today, I signed a lease on a 1,500 square foot space (far too much room for our team of two) and crossed my fingers the work …

  10. It’s full-on summer, and like any red-blooded American, I want to grill. A cold beverage, a contained flame, an excuse to stand outside and blast  Japandroids because they just get me. The “every day, a fresh new hell” landscape of 2017 has caused me to examine my entire life. Mostly: am I healthy? Is my wife healthy? I …

  11. This season of The Bachelorette is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Not only does Rachel consistently keep it both real and 100, but we’ve got a Pretty Boy Pitbull, a hunky gap tooth from WI (sigh) and now, a blissful absence of “whaaaboooms.” Why not make the next episode a party? Here are …

  12. A visual, if you will: me dancing through all of the aisles at the farmer’s market a la Ellen dancing through the rows of The Ellen Show crowd. Only like, with less flexibility and worse shoes. You get the level I’m on for market season now? I wait alllllll those snowy months (like, 11 of our 12 in …

  13. Ask any Minnesotan. They know. Sweet Martha’s Cookie Jar is a cult classic. Come every August, over the course of two weeks, hundreds of thousands of people flock to St. Paul daily for the Minnesota State Fair to send off summer. (Only Texas can boast a bigger state fair, though Minnesota’s runs for a shorter timespan …
