And sometimes even cooking it. Here are 19 Frisky-approved recipes we discovered, cooked and then ate the hell out of in 2013.

Materialistic Year In Review: The Best Things I Bought In 2013

I've already done quite a bit of serious reflecting on the life lessons I learned this year. Now it's time to reflect on a much shallower topic: the cool stuff I bought. After selling most of my belongings in the spring, I tried to be a bit more careful with my…

2013: The Year In Goats!

Even if you're not an obsessive goat lover like me, you've got to admit 2013 was a huuuuuge year for goats. These mischievous little bovids bounced their way into music videos, Taylor Swift songs, the Guinness Book of World Records, airport maintenance programs, bars, and even Jose Canseco's trunk. For posterity's sake, here'…

12 Cheesy Inspirational Quotes I Pinned On Pinterest This Year (That Were Actually Good)

2013 was a year of enormous personal upheaval for me. I met my life partner and married him just five months later at City Hall. I lost a friend to suicide. I distanced myself from people who weren't proving themselves to be interested in the caliber of friendship that I want…

2013: The Year In Assholes

Sigh. So many assholes, so little time. Unfortunately, there were many, many people who behaved like anuses this year, but I managed to whittle the list down to a final group of 13 sphincters whose shittiness really went above and beyond.

2013: This Year In Masturbation Failures

Self-love is a wonderful act, when done at the right time and in the right place. In 2013, we heard a lot about masturbation gone wrong from -- Sydney Leathers' hardcore diddling porn to a Cosmopolitan blogger's attempted NYC subway romp. Here's a look…

Watch This: The Sad State Of Country Music In 2013

Listen, I love me some fun, thoughtless country party songs as much as the next girl (emphasis on the word "girl," which is the closest thing to a name most male country artists will deign to call a woman), but over the past year, as bro country has exploded…

2013: The Year In Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen’s Amazing Friendship

I don't think I have a best friend. (Well, a human one. Love you, Lu!) I have a handful of really close friends, and plenty of friends, and even more acquaintances. But a best friend? A partner in crime? Alas, I don't think I do. But in 2014, I'd like to strengthen my existing friendships and make…

2013: The Year In GIFs That Got Us Through The Day

Forget retail therapy, I prefer to deal with stress by engaging in GIF therapy. It's cheaper, faster and has a far longer-lasting effect than the high you get from a Sephora bender. From the LED baby to the baby…

8 Painfully Obvious Life Lessons I Learned This Year

2013 was a pretty big year for me. I turned 28. I moved across the country. I started doing art again. I got a Twitter reply from Wynonna Judd. But most importantly, 2013 was the year that a shit ton of really important, embarrassingly simple life lesso…

2013: The Year In Selfies

In 2013, Oxford, those crazy ol' coots, officially added the word "selfie" to the dictionary. Oh humanity, how far we have come. I am an unabashed fan of the selfie, as it's just one way of documenting the fact that yes, I do indeed exist (and I…

2013: The Year In Stories That Made Us Cry At Our Desks

Was there a lot of covert onion-chopping going on at the office or was 2013 particularly packed with heartstring-pulling stories? After reviewing our archives, I'm going to go with the latter. From tearful dog reunions to tales of heartbreaking loss to kids showing kindness and compassion far beyond their years, here are the stories that…

2013: The Year In Onesies

There's no doubt: the onesie pajama had a moment in 2013. Traditionally onesies have been considered sleepwear for children only, but these one-piece PJs became hip for adults this year. Even I  got swept up in onesie fever. I broke down and bought this stripped, footless one-piece from Target and it made me a…
