Frisky Eats: 10 Tasty Noodle Recipes

When I was growing up, my family had a tradition called “Noodle Night,” which involved my mom ordering every noodle dish on the menu from a local Thai restaurant while my brothers and I bounced around the living room screaming, “NOODLE NIGHT! NOODLE NIIIIIIGHT!” When the noodles arrived, we would dig into the to-go boxes like monsters, slurping and laughing madly while continuing to scream “NOODLE NIGHT!” with noodles hanging out of our mouths.

Now that I’m an adult, I still feel very strongly that noodles are something to get excited about. That’s why I rounded up 10 mouthwatering noodle recipes to help you cook up your own noodle night. Click through to check ‘em out…

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]

Frisky Eats: 5 Grocery List Staples You Should Make At Home Instead

Buying pre-packaged kitchen staples like hummus, peanut butter, and pasta sauce at the store is easy and convenient. When you’re tired or in a rush, making tortillas from scratch is probably the last thing you want to do. But if you can carve out a little time to make some of these foods at home, I swear you won’t regret it. Making these basic foods yourself is healthier, because you choose the ingredients (and can leave out a ton of the chemicals, sodium, and corn syrup that the pre-made versions are often filled with), and it’s a great way to save money. It’s also — dare I say it? — kind of fun. I like to spend about an hour every Sunday night listening to music and whipping up a few recipes to snack on throughout the week (using my spatula as a faux microphone, naturally). Want to give it a try? Click through to get the scoop on five basic foods to make at home, plus my favorite recipes for each!

Beaver Fever: 5 Tasty Treats Featuring All-Natural Anal Secretions

You might have heard rumors about the anal secretions of beavers (which smell and taste like vanilla beans) being used to flavor food and thought, Oh, the things people will believe! Well, the joke’s on you, sucker. You’ve probably eaten beaver anus and didn’t even know it! This week, the Swedish National Food Agency confirmed that the anal secretions beavers use to mark their territory, called castoreum, is indeed used for vanilla flavoring in things like baked goods, chewing gum and pudding. Although beaver butt juice is rarely used to flavor our food here in the United States, some products do contain castoreum. You’ll see it labeled as on the ingredient list as “natural flavoring.” Oh, that’s about as natural as it gets. Here at The Frisky, we support the use of beaver ass in baking and hope that it will soon become as trendy as chia seeds. Click through for some delish recipes featuring sweet and fragrant beaver anus. [The Atlantic]
