I was having a good morning, until I discovered that the waffle donut is a beautiful thing that exists, but is sadly only available 800 miles away in Chicago. Frisky readers who live in Chicago, do all of us a favor and go to the Waffles Cafe, order up one of these wonuts in a flavor of your choosing and report back. I need to live vicariously through your breakfast. Dammit, what a perfect food hybrid. [Thrillist]
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? Enjoy a deep fried macaroni and cheese burger, because at brunch, anything goes! My favorite brunch includes unlimited mimosas, yoga pants, and a recliner (AKA at home with friends). The challenge to at home brunch is making the ultimate meal without wearing yourself out. The solution is simple — breakfast bakes. Everything you love about breakfast is prepped the day before and refrigerated over night. In the morning, simply pop that pan in the oven and wow your ravenous crowd. Get inspired to host your own brunch with these 10 breakfast bake recipes!

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week), I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

We know it’s not healthy to grab a granola bar on the go, but who wants to whip up an omelette in the morning instead of hitting snooze one or two more times? Not us. That’s why we’re craving this multi-tasking toaster. Toast up to four pieces of bread while you poach eggs for an egg and English muffin sandwich all in about four minutes. You can even warm pre-cooked meat in this thing. Toast, boil, and warm up your breakfast while you do your makeup? Sounds like a multi-tasking plan to us.
Did you eat strawberry Pop Tarts every day before driving off to high school? Were you the last of your friends to start having sex? According to a study of 1,500 people in Japan, teenagers who skip breakfast are more likely to lose their virginity at a younger age. The average cherry-popping of a cereal-eater happened around age 19, while those who skipped the first (and arguably most important) meal of the day lost their V-card at 17.5. Scientists think this finding is related to family life, especially because teens who were annoyed by their mothers were also more likely to have sex at a younger age. But, maybe the study just explains why moms are always so adamant about making their kids put some food in their mouths in the morning. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

In preparation for the financial apocalypse, I was challenged by Amelia to come up with five recipes for Frisky readers eatin’ on the cheap. Check out the full grocery list for all the recipes here. I tried to stick with an “under $10” budget* for each recipe, so set aside $50 and let me know if I was wrong. After the jump, the third recipe I’ve concocted… Keep reading »
I recently registered at Williams-Sonoma for the typical stuff any person needs—cookie sheets, bagel cutter, grapefruit spoons (hey, I’m a fan of citrus). But whenever the catalog arrives in the mail, I always look longingly at the pages, wishing my registry was a bit more on the adventurous side. The one appliance I’m borderline obsessed with is this “pancake” pan—but they’re not really pancakes. They’re actually ebelskiver, a traditional Danish puffed pancake filled with jelly, fruit or cheese. They look so ridiculously easy to make, and the finished product looks like a work of edible art. But instead of the other (dare I say boring?) fillings, I plan on stuffing them with Nutella and peanut butter. Yum. [$40, Williams-Sonoma] Keep reading »
