About the author
Kara Baskin (@kcbaskin) is a Boston-based writer, editor, and mom to Andy. She thinks Sriracha and garlic make everything tastier. She loves Steely Dan and "Murder, She Wrote." Her son's favorite foods include store-bought pureed mac-n-cheese and her iPhone. She will never use "heart" as a verb.
She's the Boston editor for New York Magazine's food site, Grub Street. Before that, she edited The Boston Globe's magazine for women, Lola (RIP). Her writing has appeared in the Globe Magazine, the Globe, Boston Magazine, The Washington Post, Washingtonian, NPR, Slate, Body + Soul (now Whole Living), The Boston Phoenix, and The New York Observer, among others.
If the male anatomy is puzzling to you, by all means purchase the book that she co-authored: Size Matters. Oprah liked it, so you should, too!
