Frisky Eats: 10 Recipes That Are Driving Me Bananas

I love bananas, but my sister loathes them. If you try to bring a banana into her car, she will make you eat it before and dispose of the peel on the sidewalk. To her horror, I put bananas in everything. Pancakes, smoothies, ice cream sundaes, you name it, it’s probably better with a banana. And today I’ve discovered 10 new recipes to torture her!

Next-Level Baking: How To Booze Up Your Cakes

I’ve said before that I drink alcohol for the variety of tastes, but what I haven’t disclosed yet is that I am obsessed with putting booze into my cakes (also: I am obsessed with cake). Flavor matching is at the heart of mixing cocktails, and translating cocktail flavors into cake is basically the best party trick ever. This is some intermediate-level baking that we’re talking about, but I encourage you to try it because 1) practice makes perfect and 2) armed with this knowledge, you will be able to make the most spectacular cakes of your entire life.

Zuzia Kozerska, a Polish designer, makes kitschy rolling pins engraved with just about every design under the sun. Guess what’s on my wish list now?

Naturally, I’m an especially big fan of the cat design, but her Etsy shop has about a million other nifty options as well.

Frisky Eats: 14 Fanciful Crème Brulee Flavors

There is one dessert I will never pass up. It’s name is crème brulee. Its glossy sugar casing only hints at the delectable creamy goodness underneath.

Frisky Eats: 10 Breakfast Bakes For An At-Home Brunch

FACT: Brunch is the best meal of the day. When else can one enjoy oodles of carbs with real maple syrup, thick cut bacon, fluffy eggs, and booze? Not into eggs?

The challenge to at home brunch is making the ultimate meal without wearing yourself out. The solution is simple — breakfast bakes.

Frisky Eats: 6 Easy Holiday Treats For Those Of Us Who Can’t Cook

I’m not much of a cook. I’ve never gone so far as to use my oven for shoe storage like Carrie Bradshaw, but I am definitely a lady of take-out and Lean Cuisine. Someday, when I’m no longer a frenzied college student, I’ll commit to learning the ins and outs of the kitchen like an actual functional adult, but in the meantime, being food-inept leads to major stress during the holidays. I can’t even count the times I’ve found myself faced with an empty kitchen and only a few minutes to spare when it came time to make a dessert for a holiday party or “whip up” something sweet for a guest. Behold, seven of the quickest, easiest desserts you’ve ever seen — for those of us who are not Betty Crocker.

Assorted Observations After Baking My First Pie

Different things are hard for different people. For me, eating dessert is easy — too easy. Baking it is hard. I know a bunch of you will roll your eyes at me and tell me how easy it is to whip up a soufflé. I am jealous of you. The only exposure I had to baking as a child was when my grandma came to visit and let me lick the excess cookie dough out of the bowl. And it was not as much as I would have liked to lick, let me tell you. As I mentioned, eating dessert (baked or unbaked) comes naturally to me. Keep reading »

Is This Piñata Cake Awesome Or Excessive (Or Both)?

Cheeseboard Cakes
Are they a do or a don't? Read More »

I can vaguely remember a time in my life when a cake stuffed with candy might seem a little strange and excessive, but that was Before Pinterest (B.P.) completely desensitized me to the phenomenon of desserts stuffed with more dessert. Now, the idea of a piñata cake actually seems kind of tame, at least compared to the cakes-stuffed-with-pies-stuffed-with-truffles-stuffed-with-ice-cream that I routinely repin with comments like, “So nice for a party!” This piñata cake, though, it did give me pause. Not because of the high levels of sugar, but because of the candy wrappers inside. Call me picky, but I generally prefer there not to be plastic in my food. I don’t know, what do you guys think? Is the piñata cake an awesome idea or an example of excessive desserts gone awry? [A Subtle Revelry via Neatorama]
