The Slush Mug Is Back And Ready For Freezing!

When I was growing up, one of life's greatest pleasures was going over to my grandmother's house and making Coke slushies and microwaved s'mores. These days, I can still make s'mores when I've got the hankering, but my homemade slushie cravings have long gone unquenched because I lacked the proper device -- but not anymore!

“Paletas” Is Spanish For Heaven On A Stick

On a recent boiling hot summer day, we were on a stroll, dripping with sweat from head to ass to toe, craving something cool and refreshing. An answer to our prayers came in the form of a woman selling what she called paletas (also known as "Mexican ice pops"). Not your average popsicle, these babie…

Random Single Gal Recipe: The Juicy Lucca Burger

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I've added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice…

Food I Need To Try: Fried Kool-Aid

In general, my favorite fare comes from the state fair. As a kid, I fell in love with deep-fried Oreos and Mars Bars and pickles. More recently, as fryers got more creative, I marveled at deep-fried Coca-Cola. And now we have the next frontier: deep fried Kool-Aid, a treat that Charlie Boghosian whipped up for…

Down With Martini Glasses!

I love martinis—stirred, not shaken—with olives, please! Something about the drink is so tangy and, boy, does it do the trick fast. But as much as I enjoy martinis, I almost never order them. Why? Because I have a vendetta against martini glasses. I mean, glasses are supposed to contain liquid, right? So why ha…

The Poop Burger Is Here

  Telling someone to "eat a s**t sandwich" is no longer an insult reserved for your worst enemies. It's something you can literally do. Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has made a scatological breakthrough with his alternative meat product containing a protein extracted from human poop. It's more delicately referred to as "sewage mud." Turd burgers,…

Cool Off With A Hoffsicle

Summer begins in just one short week and you know exactly what you'll need to make it through the steamiest of days—a popsicle shaped like David Hasselhoff.

Blake Lively Sabotages Ryan Reynolds With Cupcakes

"[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better." —Blake Lively jokes at a "Green Lantern" press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she's sorta joking here.

Blake Lively Smuggles Sweet Potato Sauce

"I’m always traveling, and I get so excited when I find a new spice or a new sauce. This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn’t send it because the FDA didn’t approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, “OK, can you buy a teddy bear…

We All Scream For (Cold!) Ice Cream

Jamie Oliver might not approve of noshing ice cream straight from the pint. Then again, Aunt Flo never visits Jamie once a month, does she?

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things i…
