This is Dan Toombs, but you might know him as The Curry Guy, because every single night for the past year, he’s made his family dinner using curry. Chicken korma, tandoori masala, and less traditional recipes like currywurst and curry-spiced turkey Christmas turkey, you name it–if it involves curry, he’s probably cooked it. As soon as I heard about this story, it brought me back to my own childhood, and the questionable dinners (butter sandwiches, anyone?) my dad used to make over and over again. I thought it might be interesting to poll the other Frisky staffers about their parents’ cooking habits, and if there were any particular meals they really hated growing up.

12 Creepy, Delicious Halloween Party Treats

Remember when they used to bring out the gummy worm and crumbled Oreo “dirt” cake at elementary school Halloween parties and it was, like, the greatest thing ever? I might have been particularly enthusiastic because I was eating a lot of actual dirt in my day-to-day life (my brothers and I used to play “restaurant” out in the garden and it was considered quite rude not to take a bite of a freshly-made mud pie), and Oreo dirt had a much more pleasant flavor. Anyway, the point is that just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t still cook up some spooky Halloween-themed food. I found recipes for everything from puff pastry intestines to shrunken head cider (and check out the Dexter blood slide candies up on the top right! So cool). Click through to check ‘em out…

Help! I Eat To Live & He Lives To Eat

Bill and I are a lot alike in many ways. We enjoy the same music and movies; we have a great sex life; and we share similar political and spiritual beliefs. But, when it comes to our eating habits, we are like oil and water. He’s oil; I’m water, and we would not make good salad dressing.

In fact, he hates salad, unless it’s meat. I’m a vegetarian, and his idea of vegetables is French fries with ketchup. “Well, the school board says it’s a vegetable,” he says. … and I’m a food and nutrition professional!

This used to drive me absolutely crazy. Then I realized, none of us has a perfect “I agree-with-you-100-percent-of-the-time” relationship. There’s always going to be something that bugs us about the other person. Read more…

Pumpkin-palooza! 15 Recipes For Pumpkin Desserts, Drinks, And Treats

So, at this point I’ve done quite a few recipe roundups, for all kinds of culinary indulgences from crazy-delicious cookies to gooey macaroni and cheese, and I can honestly say none of them has triggered such dramatic, drooling side effects as this pumpkin-palooza. I pored over pumpkin recipes with my mouth hanging open, every once in awhile yelling at my boyfriend to come into my office, grunting and gesturing at a photo of chocolate pumpkin marble cake or pumpkin caramel bread pudding, at which point he would sit down next to me with his mouth hanging open and we would both just stare at my computer screen, a low “Mmmmm” emanating from our throats. Pumpkin, you guys. It’s way better than porn.

I love cooking spicy food and throw jalapeños in just about anything that makes sense — Tacos! Chili! Eggs! — but nearly every time I do, I manage to add a little heat to my nose and eyes as well. But with this awesome jalapeno corer, I can avoid touching the extra spicy bits with my hands, greatly reducing the chances of setting my facial orifices on fire. Except my mouth. My mouth likes it spicy. [$10, Williams-Sonoma]
