Frisky Eats: Kristin Cavallari Helps Us Cook Up Some Delicious And Spicy Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

These Were Soooo Good!

Football season is in full swing, and all that time spent rejiggering your fantasy team, debating with your coworkers about who has better defense, and going hoarse screaming at the television screen every Thursday, Sunday and Monday works up quite an appetite. Who better to show us how to whip up some tasty tailgating snacks than Kristin Cavallari, foodie, shoe designer, football fan, wife to the Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler and mom to sons Jackson and Camden. (Oh yeah, and you probably recognize her from two little shows called “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach.”) Kristin already showed me how to make some seriously simple, delicious, sweet and salty bacon-wrapped butternut squash. Now that I’ve cleaned my plate, it’s time for tailgating snack number two — sausage-stuffed jalapeno poppers. Instead of being greasy and deep-fried, they’re roasted in the oven just the way I like ‘em. Keep reading »

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Read The Radical Housewife, Watch "Transparent" & Cook Soup

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. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »

8 Useless Things I Learned In Home Economics Class (And How They Failed Me)

Sewing Machine

In middle school, I took a cooking class and a “life skills” class, each of which promised to prepare me for fancy grown-up tasks like adequately feeding myself, running a household and holding a baby the right way. Instead, I learned a slew of pointless tasks that did nothing to prepare me for grownup-dom. High school was no better. I went to great schools growing up, and in Home Ec, our awesome teachers were just doing the best they could with the crappy curriculum they had to work with. Still, those “life skills” lessons left me and dry. I’ve since become a domestic goddess in some areas of my life (I can sew like a boss), but I’m still muddling through learning some basic skills that my 7th grade teachers promised I’d know by the end of the semester. After the jump, some useless junk I learned in Home Ec and how they failed me.

Frisky Eats: 10 Stews To Make Your Fall Cozier

It’s 65 degrees out in Chicago, and that means it’s STEW SEASON! I get really excited about stew because of the variety of accoutrements you can eat with it — rice, couscous, chips, crackers, bread, potatoes. Plus it’s basically thick soup, which is the best kind of soup, with a lot of meat in it, which is something I really like to accomplish with my meals. Plus, every single culture in the world (OK, I’m speculating, but I don’t think it’s a bad speculation) has some kind of stew, which means that stew can be a culinary adventure!

You can make these on the stove, but let’s be real, guys, one of the great things about stew is that if you happen to have a slow-cooker, you are in for a delicious-smelling home all day. More bonuses: Make a big batch, get some tupperware, and freeze portions of stew, and you have lunch for weeks. Get it in your mouth and let it make you feel all cozy!
