Longhorn ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay plans to take her new fiancé to the Texas-OU game


It’s practically a rite of passage when you’re in a relationship with a Longhorn. 

Dallas native and University of Texas grad Rachel Lindsay, whose engagement to 37-year-old Bryan Abasolo was unveiled on the season finale of “The Bachelorette” on Monday night, will be putting her relationship to the test this fall by taking her new beau to the State Fair of Texas -- and yes, the Red River Showdown. 

"Yes, I'm going to take him to the state fair," Lindsay told GuideLive.com in an interview. "I'm a Longhorn, so I want to take him to the Texas-OU game and kill two birds with one stone."

Despite the backlash Lindsay has faced regarding her decision to choose the Miami chiropractor over runner-up and all-around-perfect-human Peter Kraus, at least she’s opening him up to a new burnt orange world.

Will pumpkin spice destroy us all?

There are villains out there of infinitely greater consequence than the one I’m about to describe, and the news of late teems with them. But surely we still have the levity, and the taste buds, to look past the White House and beyond Hollywood and tremble before a lesser boogeyman. Boogeything, really, because I’m talking about a flavor...

Glycemic index

Should you care about a food's glycemic index?  Maybe, maybe not.  The glycemic index, simply put, is a measure of how quickly a food causes blood sugar levels to rise.  The measure ranks food on a scale of 0 to 100. Foods with a high glycemic index, or GI, are quickly digested and absorbed, causing a rapid rise in blood sugar. The foods...

Make the most of the Fall season with these 5 ingredients

There's a poem I love called "September Tomatoes," by the Massachusetts based poet Karina Borowicz. In it, she evokes the feeling and details of the season change, like the fruit flies that erupt from tomato plants and the compost that cooks build from what remains of summer. It closes beautifully: "My greatgrandmother sang with the...
