This always fucking gets me.
Same-sex marriage may be a wedge issue right now between Democrats and Republicans, but it might not be for long. According to the latest Pew Research study, 61% of young Republicans said they would be in favor of marriage equality, marking a sharp contrast from the party’s older members.
Just 22% of Republicans over the age of 65 said that they would support same-sex marriage, while 39% of all respondents who identified as Republican said the same.
If your relationship looks like this for more than three years, get married.
Happy Women’s History Month!

New Recipe to Try: Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
Have you heard of the hasselback technique for potatoes? I hadn’t until an intriguing image came across my instagram this weekend (care of Planks Love and Guacamole). I love sweet potatoes and am always looking for new ways to prepare them (my go-to is truffle salted fries) and this hasselback situation comes out looking pretty fancy but actually seems easy to prepare. After some online searches I’ve found that this is a popular way to prepare potatoes, the outside becomes crispy and the inside stays creamy.
Sweet potatoes are full of nutrients and also happen to be very inexpensive. At Trader Joe’s I get a bag of 4-5 sweet potatoes for only a couple of bucks.
Here are a couple of hasselback recipes that I’ve got my eye on:
Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Roasted Pistachios from A Bachelor and His Grill (pictured)
Spiced Hasselback Sweet Potatoes from The Healthy Foodie (great how-to photos)
Cinnamon Almond Hasselback Sweet Potatoes from Apron Strings (most Paleo-friendly version)
Once I try them out I’ll report back on the results!
