When food has replaced sex in your relationship, it’s pretty much over. If you’re a month or so into a relationship and you both find yourself face-planting bowls of pasta on a Friday night instead of giving yourselves reason to clean your sheets on Saturday morning, something is not right. Favorite foods are not a substitute for favorite sexual positions. Keep reading »
Last week, in honor of our mission to “Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen,” I asked you to send me your favorite recipes for a forthcoming slideshow. Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice. Instead, I’m posting the recipes over the course of the week — and there’s still two days left, so you still have time to send me your recipes (to firstname.lastname@example.org)! Today we’ve got 11 recipes from readers, for dishes like minestrone soup, braised pork chops, zucchini bread, and much more. Needless to say, I am starving now.
Men know how to cook, because we have the right incentive to cook. Once upon a time, when men were men and women were women and men were cartoon gorillas and women were porcelain princesses, the man made money and the woman made casseroles. Men stayed out of the kitchen, and women stayed out of the workplace.
But times change. For instance: in the 1960s, people drove their car from the suburbs to an office building in the city. Today, we fly in jet packs from blimp cities to subterranean bunkers deep beneath the scorched earth. Also, women are working more and cooking less, and men are working less and cooking more. But let me be clear, we’re cooking because it impress the hell out of women. Are women too easily impressed? Maybe. Keep reading »
- Buy small appliances such as toasters, microwaves, and can openers that can be mounted underneath cabinets.
- Swap a knife blick for a magnetic strip on the wall.
- Instead of storing utensils in a canister, install a stainless steel rod with matching S hooks on the backsplash and hang utensils out of the way but still within arm’s reach. Read more…
I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years, and have been dating about as long. Being a vegetarian isn’t weird, and dating shouldn’t be, but sometimes dating-while-vegetarian can throw a bit of a wrench in the game.
Food and sex, the two greatest sensual pleasures in life. And the way we speak of them is so similar: how many times have you referred to chocolate mousse as “orgasmic”? I can’t be the only one you feels this way about things I put in my mouth. (Some things, you pervert.) So I decided to put together a fun little game for Frisky readers: here are 10 celebs talking about two of life’s pleasures — cooking or nookie — but with key words omitted from each quote. It’s up to you, dear reader, to figure out what they’re talking about.
And yes, on the slide about Snooki, I do make a joke about Italian sausages. Enjoy!
Last week, in honor of our mission to “Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen,” I asked you to send me your favorite recipes for a forthcoming slideshow. Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice. Instead, I’m posting the recipes over the course of the week — and I’m still accepting more, so send ‘em (to email@example.com) if you got ‘em! Today we’ve got six seriously yummy sounding (and looking!) chicken recipes from Rachel, Kristen, Emily, EscapeHatches, Mschro, and Sarah. Now which one am I going to have for dinner tonight…
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to cook. And while I love cooking for myself, I especially love cooking for others. It’s one of the ways I feel most comfortable showing affection. Cooking brings out a nurturing side that, quite frankly, is just waiting to kick into high gear once I have a kid. Cooking makes me feel womanly and, by extension, cooking for a man makes me feel sexy. But cooking for men I’ve dated over the last few years, since I became single following the breakup of my engagement, hasn’t been as positive an experience as I would have hoped. In fact, it’s something that I now vow I won’t do until I feel a certain security with the man sitting across from me at the dinner table. Keep reading »
