There is something wonderfully nostalgic about tater tots. Tater tots were the highlight of my school cafeteria lunches — nothing matched their crispy greasy goodness. These days, I prefer French fries, but these creative creations have me wanting to stock up and go to town… … READ MORE »

GUYS.  The “Game of Thrones” finale is THIS WEEKEND.  How did the season go by this fast?  Why must we wait another year until we get our fix of our favorite Westerosis?
OK, to be fair, I started binge-watching “Game of Thrones” in the beginning of April this year.  I’ve been sadly skeptical of… READ MORE »

Turnips are by no means a glamorous food. They’re a hard root vegetable with a rough, bitter peel that you may only recognize from going to the farmer’s market, picking one up, and saying, “Damn, that is one ugly radish.” But listen up, people: turnips are SO GOOD when prepared correctly, they’re packed full of… READ MORE »

To all those people who say “I can’t cook/bake!” Repeat after me: Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect. The #1 mistake I see kitchen beginners making is trying recipes that sound awesome but put an amateur in way over their heads – too many ingredients, too much set-up, too much chopping, too much… READ MORE »

If you’re anything like me, you realize all your fruit is ripe at the same time and put everything you have into a bowl and call it fruit salad. Well, turns out, technically it’s not fruit salad. It is a bowl of chopped up fruit. Oh. Real fruit salad is so yummy because it contains… READ MORE »

Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, “Everything I’ve ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich”? That’s what happened to me yesterday after I made this sandwich. It’s vegetarian but packed full of flavor thanks to fresh mozzarella, crispy turnips (which are in season a… READ MORE »

I put savory grits right up there with French fries on my list of favorite foods. Garlicky, cheesy, spicy, you name it and the flavor can be captured within a plate of grits. Eat it alone or top it with something hearty and savor the creamy goodness… … READ MORE »

I’m one of those people who looks at food and thinks, “Could I make this myself?”  I figure it’s always worth a shot, especially if I feel like I’m paying a lot for something on a frequent basis. When someone told me that Greek yogurt is just strained regular yogurt, I made a mental stink-face… READ MORE »

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,READ MORE »

There is one dessert I will never pass up. It’s name is crème brulee. Its glossy sugar casing only hints at the delectable creamy goodness underneath. There were two must haves on my wedding registry: a massage chair and a crème brulee torch. I have yet to break out my torch, but these recipes are… READ MORE »

Iced tea is my cool-down drink of the summer. While there are many store bought options, I have come to love making my own. Brewing your own iced tea puts you in control of the strength, sweetness, and ingredients, plus it’s the perfect opportunity to utilize fruit and fresh herbs to create unique drinks week… READ MORE »

Arancini is a popular Italian dish in which balls of rice, often mixed with cheese, are breaded and deep fried. Thus the common nick name, rice balls. My Italian brother-in-law, who prepared them regularly at his deli, introduced me to them and I fell in love with how creamy and cheesy the inside of these… READ MORE »

Restaurant owner Daniel McCawley’s clever response to a sexist comment requesting that his waitresses “show more skin” had me cheering in the wings …  and craving potato skins. If I owned a car, I would road trip to West Virginia to dine at Daniel’s Atomic Grill.  Instead, I promise to share his story and think of him… READ MORE »

I’m allergic to shrimp, so I rarely partake in paella at restaurants; however, a few weeks ago I had a vegetarian paella that was orgasmic. Gato, a restaurant here in NYC, serves a kale, wild mushroom, and crispy artichoke paella topped with a sunny side up egg. The runny yoke was the perfect compliment to… READ MORE »

Here at The Frisky, we spend a lot of time talking about wine — our favorite kindsthe crafts we can make with all the leftover corks, etc, etc — but that doesn’t mean we don’t love us some beer too! And beer, like wine, is a surprisingly versatile ingredient in the kitchen. You can use it… READ MORE »

Apparently, I have been living under a rock for the past 28 years of my life.  This weekend, I tried ramps for the first time and I am smitten. At our Mother’s Day dinner at X20, I ordered risotto with mushrooms and ramps. I love mushroom risotto, but the leafy ramps stole the show. These flavorful vegetables… READ MORE »

French fries are my happy food. I have never met a French fry I didn’t like. Sometimes I order an entree simply because it comes with fries, like, if it’s between a premium cut of steak with greens or a burger with fries … you get the idea. In high school I worked at a… READ MORE »

I have never been a huge hot dog fan. Years of seeing boiled hot dogs served up by lunch ladies left me with a sad impression of the traditional wiener. In recent years, the hot dog food trucks of New York City have opened my eyes to the possibilities. I may not jump at the… READ MORE »
