Hot foodie Teri Tsang Barrett knows her way around a kitchen—a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, she works as a Food Editor at Everyday With Rachael Ray in constant search of the perfect thin crust pizza. Here she unveils her favorite frisky recipes—good food that every ravenous gal can make in a pinch. Got a rumble in your belly for something you want her to cook up a recipe for? Email us at email@example.com.
In preparation for the financial apocalypse, I was challenged by Amelia to come up with five recipes for Frisky readers eatin’ on the cheap. I tried to stick with an “under $10” budget* for each recipe, so set aside $50, head to the store, and let me know if I was wrong. After the jump, the grocery list you’ll need in order to prepare the five recession friendly meals I’ll be revealing this week.
*based on amounts used – this may sound like it’s cheating, but I swear I used up leftovers in the following four recipes, so consider this your budget weekly meal plan. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

Earlier this week, I let you in on how to be the Palin family for Halloween. Now, here’s the scoop on how to be two of pop culture’s most famous couples–Juno/Paulie Bleeker and Blair Waldorf/Chuck Bass. Yeah, we know, Chuck and Blair aren’t officially a couple, but they’ve gotten down and dirty in the past and their sexual chemistry is heating up this season. So after the jump, find costumes for these characters that you can totally re-use after Halloween. And remember, some of these items you can probably find in your own closet or your local thrift store, so spending a lot of money is unnecessary. Keep reading »
While we think sparrows may be a bit tired as a modern design motif, we don’t disparage all birds in design, especially when it comes to this adorable Victorian bird box which looks a little like a family heirloom (if your ancestors had great taste and style, that is). At $14, it’s a budget friendly piece to store your baubles and keepsakes…maybe even your favorite hand-me-down earrings from that old, stylish aunt of yours with the great taste.

In middle school, when my friends and I first started wearing makeup, glitter was all the rage. We wore glitter eyeshadow, glitter bronzer, glitter lip gloss, glitter nail polish, and glitter anything else we could find.
Now that I’m older, I think glitter makeup makes me look like a grown-up who’s trying really, really hard not to age a day over 14. But I don’t need to be without sparkles — shimmer is totally allowed. Polishes like Dior’s new color Black Sequins look sophisticated, not sophomoric because the little bits of shine are teeny-tiny, whereas with glitter, they’re chunky. See, size really does matter. Check out more, after the jump… Keep reading »
We’ve seen some cuh-razy footwear on the red carpet lately — some cool, some hideous, all totally painful to wear. After the jump, eight pairs that would make our dogs bark. The pain would just be worth it for some. Keep reading »
The Sartorialist, a.k.a. Scott Schuman, is one of my favorite photographer bloggers, with his candid, beautiful shots of cool fashionistas and slick stylists, who he finds on streets around the world. Now, Fashionista is reporting a rumor that Sart, whose own image appeared in a recent GAP campaign, has scored a book deal, possibly with Harper Collins, for a coffee table book of his iconic images. After the jump, my top ten favorite Sartorialist photos so far in 2008. Keep reading »
So now that you know five tips for staying chic for cheap and how to throw a kick-ass clothing swap, you can’t just expect to stop lusting after those Frye riding boots you’ve had your eye on forever, or that your longtime trusted hair stylist is going to suddenly start cutting her prices. The fact is no matter how frugally you learn to live, there are still going to be some things you’ll want to splurge on, and that’s okay. I mean, this is a recession, after all, not a potato famine. You don’t have to give up all your luxuries or switch to low-cost everything; you just have to get savvier about making extra money for those treats you enjoy. But I’m not talking about getting a second job or really working that much harder; a true recessionista knows how to make extra cash for little luxuries while leaving plenty of free time to enjoy them, too. After the jump, seven ways to make more money without taking a second job… Keep reading »

As soon as it gets cold outside, people immediately think they need to bundle up (think four plus layers) up to stay warm. Not a bad idea, but it’s just as effective to throw on your favorite coat and warm yourself from the inside out. Try making a cup of Chocolat Moderne’s new line of drinking chocolates instead of slipping on your thermal underwear. The four flavors, Snake Charmer, Madame ‘X’tasy, Kama Sutra and Midnight Oasis, are all delicious, but Madame ‘X’tasy is the stand out drink, a combination of espresso, burnt caramel and fleur de sel. There’s just something so unusually good about chocolate with a hint of salt. [$19, ChocolatModerne.com] Keep reading »
