Frisky Eats: 15 Compound Butter Recipes To Make Everything You Eat Better

So it turns out you guys are as big of freaks about butter as I am! I really did feel weird writing my Ode to Butter until a rash of you swooped in and expressed how dedicated to butter you are, too. There’s nothing like the Internet to build communities you didn’t know you needed.

Frisky Eats: 10 Yummy Things To Make With Corn

Summer produce is just the best. Peaches, watermelon, plums, cherries, eggplant, green beans, tomatoes and, my personal favorite, CORN. During the summer months, I find myself serving corn-on-the-cob as a side with at least half of my home cooked meals, boiling it for only a few minutes so the kernels keep some of their crunch,…

I Have Been Waiting My Whole Life For This Butter Knife

I love toast. I love butter. I especially love toast slathered in butter. And nothing ruins a perfectly good piece of toast like cold, hard butter that refuses to spread, breaks the bread and nestles into little chunks that refuse to melt. And then when you bite into it? Dry toast with chunks of butter…

Ahh, rum. There's something about the smooth taste of cold rum that makes you want to sit by the ocean, strum a guitar and let the warm breeze blow. To celebrate National Rum Day on August 16 (today!), you'll find me at the closest beach bar with a cool concoction in hand and Kenny Chesney…

An Ode To Butter

I’m coming out. I’m a buttersexual. Or, I mean, my tongue is, but my tongue is part of me, so. What I’m saying is, I’m just not at all attracted to canola oil. Jam is great and maybe once in a while I’m sort of interested in it on my toast, but in general, I’m…

Frisky Eats: 10 Reasons You Gotta Ricotta It

I just had the most amazing sandwich.  One of my favorite local lunch spots, Spreads, is featuring a Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Sandwich with roasted tomatoes and olive tapenade.  This veggie sandwich is light and lusciously satisfying on a hot summer day.  Ricotta, fresh or cooked, is a delightful compliment to sweet and savory dishes. No wonder so many…

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.

Frisky Eats: 10 Ways To Enjoy A BLT

I have made it pretty clear how I feel about mayo (see Frisky Eats: Chicken Salad), but I was recently sent Just Mayo, a vegan garlic mayo, to try out and it has me dreaming of BLTs, one of the only foods that I actually like with mayo. But let's not limit ourselves to just any BLTs...

Frisky Eats: 10 Tasty Pineapple Cocktails

This weekend, I enjoyed brunch at one of my favorite local Mexican restaurants Tomatillo. I was tempted to order my usual margarita, but decided to try a pineapple crusher instead. If you haven’t had one, I highly recommend it -- it's like a Caribbean vacation in a cup. I slowly sipped this pineapple cocktail with a touch…

Frisky Eats: Drizzle It With Honey

I recently bought a big ol' 24 oz. jar of local honey at the farmer's market and can’t wait to dig into the amber goodness. So far, I've managed to drizzle a little over Greek yogurt. I know, delicious but dull. Time to sweeten the pot with some ingenious honey-based recipes.

Frisky Eats: 10 Recipes That Are Driving Me Bananas

I love bananas, but my sister loathes them. If you try to bring a banana into her car, she will make you eat it before and dispose of the peel on the sidewalk. To her horror, I put bananas in everything. Pancakes, smoothies, ice cream sundaes, you name it, it’s probably better with a banana.

Next-Level Baking: How To Booze Up Your Cakes

I’ve said before that I drink alcohol for the variety of tastes, but what I haven’t disclosed yet is that I am obsessed with putting booze into my cakes (also: I am obsessed with cake).

Random Single Gal Recipe: Marinated Skirt Steak Tacos With Avocado

I'm pretty confident in the kitchen, but my red meat cooking skills are pretty hit or miss. I can roast the hell out of a pork tenderloin and make a super awesome cast iron chicken, but red meat gives me trouble. This weekend, I had a hankering for steak tacos and decided to take a…

Frisky Eats: 9 Mouth-Watering Watermelon Recipes

I have a bit of a reputation for making watermelon basil margaritas and drinking them right out of the melon itself. Watermelon is hands down the most refreshing fruit around. It pairs well with sweet, tart, salty, and spicy flavors. If you haven’t tried watermelon with sour lime, spicy chilli powder, or salty feta, you…
