Random Single Gal Recipe: Beef Carpaccio With Arugula

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

5 Ways To Drink Bourbon

My first bourbon experience was at a dark bar in New Orleans, where I ordered “bourbon, on the rocks” because I thought it would make me sound cool. I took one sip and started retching, so the bartender put a sympathetic shot of cola in my glass. “Try it like this,” he said, and I…

Split Decision Pie Pan

Newsflash: the holidays are just around the corner! That means it’s … pie baking season! But what to do if you can’t decide what kind of pie to make? Apple or pumpkin? Berry or rhubarb? Mince meat or blood? (Kidding about that last one, as this is not medieval times.) Why choose? This Split Decision pie…

There are three desires no man need ever justify — Marisa Tomei, a damn good sandwich, and his mother’s happiness. But since the first one is every man for himself and the last one is an individual concern, we can only advise you on the middle.

Pancakes, I Am Your Father

I am not recommending that you purchase this spatula just because it happens to be shaped like Darth Vader, although that is pretty awesome. No, I am recommending that you purchase this spatula because I happened to get it for my brother-in-law, a pretty well-known chef, and he recently told me that it is the…

Cool Trick: How To Make Scrambled Eggs Still In The Shell

Yesterday, I kind of fell down a major DIY rabbit hole. No, I wasn’t actually doing Do-It-Yourself projects all day; I was just reading about them on the internet. I tend to file DIY projects in three categories: 1) cool projects I would do if I had the time (a custom headboard made from scra…

We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Ice cream and summer go together like keg stands and frat parties. And when we heard there was a way that you could actually make soft-serve ice cream at home, we thought it might be too good to be true. But the reviews on this powder pink soft-serve maker from Cuisinart say it’s the real…

“Paletas” Is Spanish For Heaven On A Stick

On a recent boiling hot summer day, we were on a stroll, dripping with sweat from head to ass to toe, craving something cool and refreshing. An answer to our prayers came in the form of a woman selling what she called paletas (also known as “Mexican ice pops”). Not your average popsicle, these babie…

Random Single Gal Recipe: The Juicy Lucca Burger

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I’ve added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice…

Get Stuffed At Your Next BBQ

We’re psyched for spring for a number of reasons; warm weather brings bare legs, iced coffee, peonies, and, perhaps most importantly, the desire to fire up the grill. (Though we live in New York City, we purposefully collect a few friends with backyards and/or roof decks for such things.) A simple burger may be acceptable…
