We’re serving up a sweet treat for a woman who gave an epic middle finger to everyone who tried to keep her down. Ruby-red cherries, tender cake, and plenty of butter make this cherry cobbler the perfect way to celebrate Harriet Tubman.

And we will honor them the best way we know how: with fucking scrumptious baked goods.
Because, let’s be real: the best replacement for the patriarchy isn’t a matriarchy.
It’s The Bakeriarchy.Read more "Reclaiming the Cult"
