Sassy Magazine's "Eat This"

Sassy Magazine "Eat This"

Jon Whittle

We loved everything about_ Sassy_—the teen magazine whose frank storytelling put it in a class of its own in the 1980s and '90s—but especially its “Eat This” column. It featured recipes ranging from Sonic Youth's tuna tacos to comic strip character Weasel's beef chili. The latter alluded, with Sassy charm, to legumes' “magical” properties: “Sometimes things that test a relationship make it stronger.”
