rookiemag Celebrity culture has given us so many awful things—too many to name, and everyone has named them already—but there’s also a positive side to famous-people worship. Sometimes, when you need life inspiration, the most accessible examples are, paradoxically, the most distant and inaccessible human beings. The stars are so far away that they look perfect, twinkly, unflawed. We can use this! Courtney Love By Stephanie I discovered her in seventh grade, at a sleepover at the house of a friend with a cool older cousin who was always exposing us to the best music, like David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails. I remember seeing her on the cover of Sassy kissing the cheek of my other recently discovered idol, Kurt Cobain, and thinking how lucky she was. Two years later, when he killed himself, she comforted me. I saw her live for the first time less than six months after Kurt died. My boyfriend and I watched her on MTV Unplugged. I wrote my own poetry while I listened. “What is it?”

Green Powerhouse Pesto Plate After fretting over a recipe to make for St. Patrick’s Day and then having a few gluten-free/vegan cakes crash and burn, Eric suggested that I switch things up and make pesto. It’s green, right? I’ve had a few requests to show you some of the meals I’m eating while on the allergy elimination diet. This isn’t actually “pesto” per say since it’s nut-free, but it’s close enough.

[See Vitamins and Supplements: Do They Work?] melodyfairitale | ☆Strange teenage vegan☆ Vegan Port Wine Cheese The first time I tried roasted red pepper hummus, I had to keep rechecking the package ingredients to make sure it didn't have any actual dairy or whey in it, because it just tasted so cheesy to me. Since then, I've used roasted red peppers and raw cashews (because of its neutral taste and high fat content) to replicate this flavor in things like this dish, and this one, as well as a coating for kale chips—simply because it tastes so rich and complex. Here I've incorporated that same concept into a port wine cheese ball. This mixture is packed with quinoa and raw tahini for bulk, an array of nuts for texture, and a splash of port wine to give it a depth of flavor and a little boozy kick. Place the raw cashews into a food processor and grind into a fine powder. Place in the freezer for about an hour to allow the mixture to slightly firm up so you can form it into two large cheese balls or several small cheese balls.
