“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…

Harry Potter: The Cupcakes

Just three weeks until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” arrives in theaters. To tide you over, here are some Harry Potter cupcakes. Ron Weasley and Voldemort look especially delicious, no? Wouldn’t it be funny if one of these were a horcrux?

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.”…

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. Luckily, Del Monte has created just that, in honor of National Ice Cream Month. It is called The Hoffsicle. Yes, I will be buying stock in Del Monte.

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.

Reader Call Out: Random Single Gal Snack Recipes!

Earlier this week, our marketing coordinator, knowing my favorite pastime is cooking/eating, sent me an excited email about the snack she invented one particularly hungry afternoon. “So, in the past week strawberries have been amazing,” she wrote. “I decided to put a smear of fresh goat cheese on a Nilla Wafer and topped it with…

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? With the summer months fast approaching, a girl’s got to do her best to keep Cherry Garcia from melting into a drippy, sticky mess. But this ingenious ice cream pint…

I’m Not Impressed By The Triple Double Oreo

Who does Nabisco think they’re fooling with their new Oreo? Word on the interwebs is that Oreo is releasing a new varietal this summer called the Triple Double Oreo, which features three layers of cookie, two layers of cream — one white cream and one chocolate cream. They are billing it as “the most indulgent…

Random Single Gal Recipe: Creamy Linguine With Roasted Tomatoes, Peas & Mozzarella

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 in

Cupcake Vodka? Yes, Please!

Oh, yes, ladies, cupcake vodka is an actual thing! Cupcake Vineyards sells 14 wines but also vodkas with “creamy cupcake undertones.” OK, we’re listening. Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil’s food, and lemon chiffon. Obviously the Cupcake Vodka PR people need to send The Frisky sample bottles so…

New Obsession: Tom Haverfoods

You knew we were obsessed with our food rakes and our chicky chicky parm parm after “Parks and Recreation”‘s Tom Haverford (played by Aziz Ansari) came up with a list of special Tom-centric food terms. And now we’ve got a whole bunch of new Tom Haverfordisms to memorize and incorporate into our food vocabularies. Gum?

Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Adds Women-Only Division

Score one for the ladies … I think? The venerable Nathan’s hot dog eating contest, held each year on the 4th of July, is now adding a women’s-only division. Women only comprise two of the world’s top 10 competitive eaters. The Major League Eating organization — yes, that actually exists — thinks the ladies should…

Stop Eating White Bread If You Want To Have More Sex

Is your sex drive sluggish? Maybe you should lay off all the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on Wonder Bread. A very enlightening article about sex drive killers points to white bread as a possible culprit:
“Foods such as white bread release the sugar more quickly than their wholegrain counterparts — and too much…

Yelp Helps Hungry Hipsters Find Places To Dine

I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe…

Lily Allen Used To Be Bulimic

“I used to vomit after meals. It’s not something I’m proud of. But, I tell you what, a lot of people came up to me telling me how great I looked and I’d be on the cover of every magazine. I thought I looked good and it was great to be able to try o…
