What’s not to love about a kebab? First of all, it’s common knowledge that anything served on a stick is instantly more delicious and fun to eat, but they’re also great for parties, keeping kids’ (or immature adults’) attention at the dinner table, or just combining interesting flavors in a new way. It might be a bit too early to fire up the grill some of these recipes call for, but most ingredients can be oven roasted and/or seared in a pan for similar results. Ready to get cookin’? Click through for 11 kebab recipes — from cilantro lime shrimp to french toast(!) — that had me drooling on my keyboard…
We’re pretty intrigued by this photo series project called “Feminism is not a means to just justify self entitlement,” in which signs held by a man and a woman clarify what it can mean to be in a relationship while being a feminist. I know I’ve definitely had moments where I’ve gotten caught up in where feminism fit within traditional dating rituals; this series explains some points of confusion about gender roles and simply being a loving partner.
Do these pictures resonate with you or do you feel like they already go without saying? I find myself leaning in both ways — these are important points that some people don’t understand, but I would hope a reasonably thoughtful person doesn’t need the difference between chivalry and oppression to be spelled out. I’d love your thoughts. [Jezebel, Imgur]

American Eagle Outfitters has developed the “first-ever matching clothing line for dogs and their owners” and while we would normally roll our eyes at any attempts to dress like your dog, we are genuinely smitten. “American Beagle Outfitters” (HAHA) released a lookbook featuring pups of all breeds decked out in AEO gear and it is is beyond adorable. The line is set to hit stores later this spring — unless the whole thing is a big April Fools ploy, because, I mean, it’s almost too cute to be true. Either way, shoppers who sign up for the waiting list will receive a discount on purchases and a dollar from each order will be donated to the ASPCA.
Check out the lookbook’s canine models (and weigh in on which outfit Amelia should buy for Lucca)! [Duhhhhh, the puppy Baja hoodie worn by Ace (above) FTW! -- Amelia] [Fuck off, Mom. -- Lucca] [Fashionista]
Even if I had been, like, into sports in high school, I would have been screwed, seeing as I attended a performing arts school, where I could fulfill my physical education requirement with an assortment of dance classes. No, the whole high school jock culture thing is really foreign to me, and therefore kind of intriguing. I wouldn’t go back to high school for a million dollars, but I would spend a little dough to rock varsity style, which is super popular for spring. The key is not to wear more than one or two sporty pieces at a time, unless you want to look like an extra from a teen high school drama on ABC Family. Here are 12 pieces I’m currently jonesing for…
Sometimes in life, the only men you can rely on are Jim, Johnnie, Jack and José (along with some of their strong friends, of course). It’s okay to set aside your wine spritzer or peach-tini to opt for something on the harder side. And lucky for you, we know just the right cocktails to light that fire under your butt without making your face scrunch up like you just drank lighter fluid.
I’ve always felt a special connection to Lily Allen, because we have the same birthday (May 2nd, represent!), the same middle name, and we are both really good at rhyming. Obviously, we’re on the same page fashion-wise too. I love her mix of flirty, feminine dresses with more daring high-fashion pieces, and, of course, some comfy sneakers thrown in for good measure (we Taureans sure do like to be comfy). Click through to check out some of Lily’s recent street style looks, and if you have a May 2nd birthday, the middle name “Rose,” and/or consider yourself an above-average rhymer, please email me an application to join me and Lily’s Special Friendship Club.
Looking to inject a little more style into your workout wear? Check out Fabletics, a new line of fashionable fitness gear co-founded by Kate Hudson. Here’s how it works: you answer a few questions about your style preferences, favorite workouts, and body type, and Fabletics creates a personalized style profile for you. If you opt to become a VIP member, Fabletics sends you a list of new outfits to choose from at the beginning of every month. You can buy complete outfits or single pieces at a discount (plus free shipping!), or, if none of the month’s outfits strike your fancy, take a pass and save your outfit credit for next month. Click through to see a few of my fave outfits Fabletics has to offer. All prices listed are VIP prices, but you can still purchase any outfit without being a VIP, and/or just buy each item individually! I’m seriously drooling over that cutout t-shirt with cross-cross bra on the left. WANT.
Amelia dropped a bomb on The Frisky staff today: she’s never heard of puppy chow. “What, is it supposed to look like dog food?” she asked. Oh, silly Amelia! We explained puppy chow is a variation on Chex mix where you combine melted chocolate or syrup with candy and add yummy ingredients to give it different flavors. It’s popular at Girl Scout bake sales everywhere!
Puppy chow also goes by the names reindeer food, muddy buddies and (inexplicably) snowman poop, so I don’t blame her for being confused. I did some deep Pinterest-ing and found 17 different puppy-snow-reindeer-poop recipes to help Amelia get with the program and give myself some snacking ideas. Dig in!
Would you judge me if I told you I’ve had couscous for dinner every day for the past week? Would you judge me if I told you I’m not even close to sick of it and will probably have it for every dinner for the next year? Seriously, it’s just so delicious and so versatile — it works great as a base for thick stew or stir fry; it’s amazing in salads, as a side-dish, or just on its own. It’s also fairly healthy, depending on how much butter you put in it (confession: it is not at all healthy when I make it). Click through for 10 mouthwatering couscous recipes, guaranteed to turn you into a crazy couscous freak like me!
