Frisky Eats: 10 Post-Sex Snacks For Dignified Adults

Reading Buzzfeed’s definitive ranking of foods to eat after sex, made us feel, well, nostalgic for our younger years. Once upon a time it was nice to eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey post-coitus, back when our metabolisms burned it off like it was nothing. Coronas, which we used to suck down, just give us gas now. And cigarettes? Haven’t touched one after sex, or even socially, in years. However, we’re still human, so we still crave a satisfying snack after roll in hay. But we’re adults now. No more leftovers straight out of the fridge or Nutella straight out of the jar. Those days were fun, but they’re over. Click through for some upgrades to your favorite post-sex grub. Because you deserve better than cheese cubes. Cheese cubes are for toddlers. [Photo from Shutterstock]

Frisky Eats: 6 Flavored Butters To Take Your Food Up A Notch

Let’s face it: Butter makes everything better. I keep praying for the day quinoa is tossed aside and butter is labeled the new miracle food. My favorite part of going to brunch at a nice restaurant is the flavored butter they serve on freshly baked bread. Cracking open a warm doughy roll and watching the brightly colored butter melt into a delicious mess is more than I can take.

Over the weekend, I came across a vendor at the farmer’s market selling flavored butter for $8! Now, although all butter is not made equal, there is no reason you should have to break the bank to enjoy flavored butter. Try some of these easy recipes and enjoy the possibilities.

First up, my maple spice butter!

A Baker’s Dream: The Nibble Pan Lets You Taste Your Cake Without Ruining It

When I was growing up, every time my mom made one of her gorgeous cakes and set it on the counter to cool, I would sneak into the kitchen and slice a very small sliver off the top of the cake, just to try it. That little sliver would be so delicious that I couldn’t resist slicing off another piece, and another, and then pretty soon I would just be digging chunks of cake out of the pan with my hands like a crazed animal. If my mom had had one of these ingenious Nibble cake pans, which lets you bake a tiny taste-tester cake alongside the full-size one, our relationship would have been much more harmonious. I think I’ll get her one now as a belated cake-mangling apology. And one for myself too, just because it’s such a rad idea. [$26, Amazon]
