What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

My coverage on viral culture has launched careers. I profiled Ben Lashes, which gave him a huge boost in recognition and business.

16 queso recipes to put some spice in your snack game — No basketball game is complete without snacks, and queso is a staple in sports fan food groups. The spicy, velvety dip is most classically enjoyed when combining chile and cheese, but there are plenty of ways to enhance your queso with a few additional ingredients.

14 upsetting band breakups that rocked music history — In the words of Freddie Mercury, another one bites the dust. On Wednesday, teens all over the world weeped as this generation's favorite boy band One Direction lost a member. Zayn Malik left the group "to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."

15 things you can put in mac and cheese that taste better than metal — We all got the blues when Kraft announced that it's recalling 6.5 million boxes of macaroni and cheese after finding pieces of metal in some of the boxes. While the original flavor Kraft mac and cheese is a snack staple, there are plenty of ways to get your mac on that don't involve potentially damaging your insides.

Which mascot throws down the hardest in our March Madness bracket? — March Madness is upon us, and the real competition is based on athletics, these basketball players would be nothing without school spirit. And who is responsible for leading the crowds to hoarse throats from screaming cheers? The mascot.

24 Guinness recipes that won't give you a hangover — You can love or hate St. Patrick's Day, but nothing beats a Guinness. The creamy Irish stout is easy to guzzle on any day, but some of us don't have the luxury (or the liver) to spend a weekday throwing back pints at the bar.

Kanye West's terrible guide to social media dating etiquette — When it comes to expressing feelings, very people are more vocal than Kanye West. Kanye loves Kim. It's sweet, and no one is denying there's a clear chemistry between these two - after all, they make beautiful babies and weddings. But Kimye is like that Facebook couple you would unfriend in a heartbeat if it wouldn't cause even more drama.

Age of Ultron' dubbed by cute kids — Marvel doesn't need a lot of help packing its movies chock-full of action, but even someone as tough as the Hulk can be taken down by a few cute kids. Adults and children of all ages are salivating at the mouth for any peek at the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, set to hit theaters May 1.

'Blue Steel' vs. Derek Zoolander's other really, really ridiculously good looks — The only thing better than the return of Zoolander is orange mocha frappuccinos. Paramount confirmed on Tuesday that the classic 2001 comedy is getting a sequel in the most model-esque way possible: A Hansel/Zoolander walk-off in the middle of a Valentino show during Paris Fashion Week.

In the '80s, they put cat heads on human bodies without Photoshop — In the '80s, photographer Terry Gruber didn't need Photoshop or Instagram to cash in on his goofy cat pics, and he didn't have Tumblr to land a book deal either. It took countless trips to thrift stores, a photography studio and friends who accepted payment in wine.

How big is the average penis? Let's compare with household objects — Size matters ... for science, anyway. While there have been numerous prior studies (both scholarly and unscientific) on penis size, the British Journal of Urology International published one of the girthiest analyses to date.
