Frisky Eats: 15 Flavorful Fig Recipes

When I was a little girl, my grandmother would always put out a plate of cookies and figs for me to eat when I went to visit. Now my mom does it, and soon enough, I’m sure I’ll do it for my kids. Not only are figs healthy, but they’re sweet enough to be a dessert, and they’re even better when paired with something savory. After recently eating an absolutely to-die-for bacon-wrapped fig, I did a little research to see what other kinds of dishes called for the healthy fruit, and I found tons that had my mouth watering. Here are 15 flavorful fig recipes I can’t wait to test out.

I’m Creeped Out: Lonely Guy Turns Shower Head Into Girlfriend (And Now You Can Too!)

No girlfriend? No problem. You can do what one lonely man did and construct a girlfriend in the shower with just a mask, newspaper, some tape and your regular run-of-the-mill handheld shower head. That’s totally normal, right? NO IT’S NOT.

He was looking in every Sunday paper to try and find a bride who could even come close to being as “lovely” as his own bride, many years ago. He always came up empty-handed. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champagne

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty Agave Nectar Lip Mask Champagne

I love silver and I love gold, but I rose gold is my absolute favorite. There’s something so elegant and princess-like about the pinkish metallic hue that’s not too flashy, but is still classically pretty.

After all, I’ve given Bite’s products a try before and love them! Keep reading »

15 Imagined Flavors Served At Farrah Abraham’s New Frozen Yogurt Shop

farrah_abraham_frozen_yogurt_flavors

The first thought that popped in my head when I heard about Farrah Abraham opening up her own frozen yogurt shop was “everybody steer clear of anything cream-flavored.” I’m not sure why Farrah, the “Teen Mom” who’s starred in sex tapes like “Backdoor Teen Mom” and “Farrah 2: Backdoor And More” feels the need to venture into the froyo biz, although she did tell us a while back that she was hoping to attend culinary school and pursue “other culinary business endeavors,” so I assume this is one of those endeavors. Until the doors to her Austin, Texas shop open, we’ve come up with some froyo flavors that one might expect from Farrah’s FroCo Fresh Frozen. Keep reading »

Life Lessons We've Learned From the Spice Girls (In GIFs)

Eighteen years ago today, The Spice Girls put their stamp on the world by releasing “Wannabe.” It’s hard to believe I was just a little pigtailed eight-year-old at the time, but this song has remained one of my favorite jams and girl power anthems over the years, crowned as my karaoke song of choice. (And I know I’m not the only one who knows all the words to Mel B‘s rap verse to this song, so don’t kid yourselves.) The Spice Girls were more than just a girl band, and “Wannabe” was more than just a song. Girl Power is a way of life that I’m proud to say I still abide by, but that’s not the only thing they taught me. Check out these 10 life lessons we all learned from Baby, Posh, Ginger, Scary and Sporty Spice. Keep reading »
