Reader Call Out: Random Single Gal Snack Recipes!

Earlier this week, our marketing coordinator, knowing my favorite pastime is cooking/eating, sent me an excited email about the snack she invented one particularly hungry afternoon. “So, in the past week strawberries have been amazing,” she wrote. “I decided to put a smear of fresh goat cheese on a Nilla Wafer and topped it with half a strawberry — it was AMAZING. Like a tiny cheese cake without any of the work!” This got me thinking that A) I need to buy some strawberries at the farmer’s market this weekend (my fridge is always stocked with goat cheese) and B) this would be a great introduction for my first request for reader submissions for our “Random Single Gal Recipes” feature. So, {encode=”amelia@thefrisky.com” title=”Email me”} your favorite snack recipe — Dips! Mini-quesadillas! Other tiny edibles! — and I’ll post my favorites next week. (For reference, “bag of Fritos” does not count, but “Frito Pie” does.) Get ready nom-nom. Keep reading »

Bring The Tropics Home

The other day, I was at a friend’s house and excused myself to use her loo. A minute later — I’m a quick pee-er — I emerged with one question: “What is that smell?” I meant it in a positive way — I was completely intoxicated by the vaguely fruity odor of her lavatory. I think we can all agree that delighting in the smell of someone’s evacuation station is unusual and I had to know how to replicate the experience at home. The delightful aroma turned out to be Archipelago’s mandarin guava-scented home diffuser, which emits its subtly yummy-scent for several months. Close your eyes and you’ll feel like you’re tinkling on a tropical island.
