I don’t know how it’s possible that we’ve never done a pizza recipe roundup for Frisky Eats, given that we all consider pizza a food group around these parts. Maybe it’s so obvious that we forgot? Well, time to repair that oversight. Here are 14 pizza recipes you can easily make at home — in the oven or on a grill — using homemade dough or store bought. Get it in your mouth, pizza lovers!
Somehow it managed to escape my notice that Heidi Klum is now dating 27-year-old Vito Schnabel, son of artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel and a bit of a Hollywood playboy (he’s dated Demi Moore, Liv Tyler and Elle Macpherson). I probably would have continued to be ignorant to this bit of celebrity bed-swapping gossip if these photos of the couple on the beach in Mexico hadn’t surfaced today and caught my attention because Klum, as you can see, in topless. I love a topless beach. Tan lines are fine and all, but bronzed boobs are the best. Click through for more pics of Heidi’s (NSFW) nips if you’re into that sort of thing.
I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means. (I’m guessing genetically engineered chickens with no heads and 17 breasts, but I could be wrong.) Initially I was picturing a pizza pie with crust made out of, I dunno, minced chicken cooked and shaped into a circle — GAG — but it turns out that this chicken pizza more closely resembles that pull apart garlic bread. Each “pizza” is comprised of 12 chicken bites that, uh, are sort of stuck together in an oblong shape, and topped with various pizza toppings. When you really think about it, this is not altogether different from, say, chicken parmesan … except Domino’s is going a little nuttier with their “flavors.” They’re launching with four varieties: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon. I dunno, sounds like overkill to me. This is one fast food innovation I’ll be saying NO to. [Eater]
And lo and behold, here are 13 others! Hot dog pizza? Pasta bread bowls? God help us…
I’ve been debating whether to jump on the overalls trend for a few months now and still haven’t bit the bullet and bought a pair. Everywhere I look, though, overalls are taunting me — at the vintage store I went to yesterday, in basically every issue of every lady mag recently, and on countless celebs whose pictures fill the paparazzi feeds. My biggest fear has been that overalls will just look ridiculous or dumpy on me and that I’ll look back and wonder why the hell I thought dressing like a farmer would be good look. But seeing at how these celebs have rocked the trend, I’m starting to think this trend doesn’t have to be one I’d regret trying. I’m especially into the way stylish women like Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo are wearing overalls that are more fitting than baggy, with cuffed ankles and cute little flats. Very chic! Hmm, maybe I’ll give this a try after all…
There I was, just a few moments ago, sitting at a coffee shop in West Hollywood, sippin’ on a Vietnamese iced coffee and feeling pretty AFB about life, when a random woman approached me and complimented me on my dress.
“It looks so lovely on you,” she said kindly.
“Why thank you!” I replied. “The weather is so beautiful and warm, I thought I’d wear a white dress today!”
No matter where you are — in a coffee shop in West Hollywood or taking shelter from the rain in NYC or somewhere else entirely — warmer temps are around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), so white dress season can be yours for the taking. Here are 17 little white dresses that are totally compliment-worthy.
It might be a wrap on the first weekend of Coachella, but we’re still getting over some of the random celebrities that decided to descend on Indio, California, for the Music and Arts Festival. To this group of celebs that seemed to stand out like a hand full of sore thumbs, we have three words for you: Just Say No-chella.
Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015. the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.

I know as well as anyone that nothing stands between a woman and her wine, and in the case of Florida’s Desiree J. Taylor, that includes pants. The 35-year-old woman was caught on a surveillance camera meandering around a Publix supermarket in Ocala in just a T-shirt and a pair of slippers, listening to music on her tablet, and then waltzing out of the store with a stolen case of boxed wine under her arm. She was arrested yesterday morning on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting a merchant and petty theft, police said. I’m guessing they decided not to charge her with indecent exposure on account of the fact that she at least paired her pantlessness with a T-shirt that came down to the tops of her thighs. Let this be a lesson, criminals — if you’re going to go pantless, make sure you’re at least wearing a top that could pass for a mini dress. [Crime Feed]
Shockingly enough, pantless crimes are really quite common. It seems like every other week I read a story about the police picking up a perp who forgot to put his or her pants on before committing some nefarious deed. Way to be discreet! Here are just eight mostly recent examples of criminals who drew even more attention to their illegal activity by breaking the law pantless…
I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers. Seriously, looking at that striped pineapple dress in the middle is making me both hungry and sartorially inspired. Click through for more fruity fashion…
