This is just, just, just… the best.
Glamour Magazine is putting out a cover-headline-story-worthy new cookbook, 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Fabulous Dishes to Get You Everything You Want in Life, on April 5. No, I’m serious. The magazine claims the recipe for Engagement Chicken is responsible for 60 marriages:
1 whole chicken (approx. 3 lb.)
2 medium lemons
Fresh lemon juice (1/2 cup)
Kosher or sea salt
Ground black pepper
Place rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Wash chicken inside and out with cold water, remove the giblets, then let the chicken drain, cavity down, in a colander until it reaches room temp (about 15 minutes). Pat dry with paper towels. Pour lemon juice all over the chicken (inside and outside). Season with salt and pepper. Prick the whole lemons three times with a fork and place deep inside the cavity. (Tip: If lemons are hard, roll on countertop with your palm to get juices flowing.) Place the bird breast-side down on a rack in a roasting pan, lower heat to 350 degrees and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn it breast-side up (use wooden spoons!); return it to oven for 35 minutes more. Test for doneness—a meat thermometer inserted in the thigh should read 180 degrees, or juices should run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork. Continue baking if necessary. Let chicken cool for a few minutes before carving. Serve with juices.

Sorry I Can’t Attend Your Wedding.. Because I Have No Idea How to Dress in “Morning Coat” or “Lounge Suit”
Here’s the wedding invitation for Prince William and Kate Middleton that was sent to about 1,900
peons, I mean peasants people. Of these 1,900 close friends & family, 600 are invited to the Queen’s reception immediately following. And of these 600 people, only 300 are invited to Prince Charles’ dinner at Buckingham Palace. I wonder if they are registered at Amazon Wedding…

Check out what Kate Middleton was wearing when Prince William first spotted her. That has got to be the worst dress I have ever seen?.. I only add the question mark because my brain is still googling itself for any other dresses in my lifetime that potentially could be uglier…?
She wore it 8 years ago on the runway of a school charity show and now the owner won’t part with it because she plans on watching its worth grow faster than her career in fashion design. (via.)
