Grown Men Bob For Buffalo Wings In A 20-Gallon Kiddie Pool Of Blue Cheese

Grown Men Bob For Buffalo Wings In A 20-Gallon Kiddie Pool Of Blue Cheese
I Love Wings, But No. Just No.

You know what they say: you can never have too much of a good thing … except at the National Buffalo Wing Festival where “good things” go to die.

Last weekend, Buffalo, N.Y. hosted the 13th annual finger lickin’ fest where people of all ages could bond over their love for hot wings. Not surprisingly, the event included a wing-eating competition, and the winner managed to scarf down over 200 pieces in 12 minutes. But the festival’s most talked-about event was a lot messier, much more nauseating to watch, and involved way too much blue cheese.  Keep reading »

An “Impress Your Friends” Recipe From Chef Jean-Georges: Mixed Wild Mushroom Pizza With Fried Eggs

An "Impress Your Friends" Recipe From Famous Chef Jean-Georges: Mixed Wild Mushroom Pizza With Fried Eggs

As a huge foodie, I’m counting down the days until I attend the Greenwich 2014 Food + Wine Festival this September. When I learned that one of the world’s most famous chef restaurateurs, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, was going to be honored at the event’s Most Innovative Chef’s Gala, I had to see what all the hype was about before I actually tried his food. Jean-Georges has published several cookbooks, owns multiple 3 and 4-star restaurants worldwide and makes countless television appearances, but best of all, he’s shared one of his favorite recipes with The Frisky, and trust me— it’s one of those knock-the-socks-off-of-your-friends, be-the-hostess-with-the-mostess eats that will leave everyone in the room salivating.  Keep reading »

Adorable Children Try Vegemite For The First Time, Are Not Impressed

"I Recommend Nobody Ever Buys It Again"

“Vegemite is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives,” begins the Wikipedia page for noxious spreadable Vegemite. If you haven’t had the pleasure, Vegemite tastes extremely salty, is the color of dark poop, and has the consistency of slightly melted peanut butter.  You can spread Vegemite on toast or crackers, or even put in a sandwich if there is literally nothing else in your cupboards that you could put in a sandwich, including multivitamins. So naturally, giving Vegemite to young children without much of a personal filter is highly entertaining. [Laughing Squid]

Because everything is better with butter. Read More »

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.

That being said, it’s also given me a damn good excuse to sift through the web to find the best compound butter recipes out there. Use this shit on bread. Put it in your oatmeal. Cook burgers in it. Cook steaks in it. Mash it into potatoes and sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Slather it on all your vegetables. Use it for your Italian buttercream. Use it for your American buttercream. Put it in your cocktails and your coffee. Eat it plain for that matter! Just get more butter in your life.

MOOOOAR. BUTTTTERRRRR.

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, slathering the steaming hot ear with salty melted butter. But with corn selling for, like, 50 cents an ear, I want to eat much more of it before the season is up and I’d like to get a little more creative. Here are 10 recipes I’m totally corny for. (Sorry, that was a stupid joke.)
