Hello! I'm making pasties for part of an assessment at school. However, I've found a recipe I really like except it includes pumpkins which aren't particularly common apart from Halloween time. So, what would you recommend as a filling to go with onion? It's a winter-warmer type theme, to be eaten at a Halloween party or Bonfire Night kind of family get-together. Thank you! (:
If you can’t or would prefer not to use pumpkin, you can sub in butternut squash, acorn squash, or sweet potatoes. Of course, if you do decide to use pumpkin, the sugar and cheese varieties are the best for cooking. Good luck, hope your dish turns out well!

Are your parents chefs, too? (I know you don't consider yourself a chef, so substitute 'cook' if you like.)
Nope! My parents are great cooks, but no one in my family is a chef (although my dad might come close-ish, see below).
My dad's a business realtor (in Sarasota, FL). Back in 1971, he and my grandfather founded The Athlete’s Foot - the first store in the world to specialize in athletic footwear. He also designed the original logo, which I fucking love:
He also once owned a couple of independent fast foot restaurants called Sly’s Fries (still the best french fries I’ve ever had) and Mexican Hat Dance. I have a very distinct memory of making a gigantic batch of chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen at Sly’s Fries when I was 2 or 3, but I don’t remember if my dad regularly cooked at Sly’s. Later, when we moved to Florida, he owned a few franchises of a candy store called Candy Headquarters. None of these places exist anymore, sadly.
Hi, my name is Daisy Lee and I'm a 16 year old Junior living in the lonely Allentown of Pennsylvania. I just wanted to tell you guys how I love your shows, and always check my subscriptions on YouTube for your newest episodes. I just made Apple Cake this evening with you guys' recipe, and I'm so tempted to eat it although it's still in the process of cooling down in the kitchen, haha. Thank you guys for your awesome foodieness!
-Sincerely your avid fan, Daisy.
You’re so welcome, and thanks for the awesome message, Daisy. How’d that apple cake come out? Send us a photo…if there’s any left!
Okay, folks, we’re well over the 3,000 followers line now (yay!) so it’s time for another magnet giveaway.
If you’d like a couple of super-hip Working Class Foodies magnets, leave a comment/photo reply/post/tweet (to @wcfoodies) with your favorite Thanksgiving side dish. Can be a photo, a video, a recipe, or just the name of the dish and why you love it.
If you’ve already received magnets but want to submit something anyway, go ahead. Just let me know that you’ve already pimped out your fridge with some WCF magnets.
EDIT: Um, also, send your address in either in the Ask box or by email!
what's your guilty pleasure food? like the most non working class foodies food that you love?
Okay, for reals?
My absolute favorite guilty pleasure food is Kraft Mac’n’Cheese. I love the shit out of that bright orange pasta. I am not at all ashamed to admit that I love Kraft’s mac in particular, although I have weaned myself to the slightly less guilt-inducing Annie’s Organic, which really is just as good. Almost.
So how are you enjoying your comedy writing class and how will it inspire your work?
hello, anonymous person who seems to know a lot about my life. the comedy class i’m taking at the 92Y is, so far, fun. i concentrated in screenwriting in film school and it feels so good to have writing assignments again, which probably sounds very weird.
i don’t think it will have much of a direct effect on working class foodies, but hopefully it’ll get me started on a second draft of a feature i’ve been meaning to revisit for awhile. yay, writing!
