Remembering Eat This

Sassy recipes from rock stars

During its heyday, Sassy was my favorite magazine. The alt.fashion and lifestyle rag of choice for young ladies of late ’80s and early ’90s offered everything from interviews with musicians and actors to advice to product reviews to DIY projects (see the pillowcase dress) to beauty how-to articles (see the self-bang trim) to recipes from Sassy staffers and rock stars, like Mike D, Evan Dando and Sonic Youth. Check out three “Eat This” entries on carrot cake, hard sauce and tuna tacos below.
