Frisky Eats: Viva Potatoes!

Hi guys, I have something important to announce. I am officially declaring war on the War On Women Eating Starch. Okay, so there’s not an official War On Women Eating Starch, I’ve just noticed that a lot of the women I know never eat potatoes. It seems to be a weight thing, because potatoes are heavy and don’t have a heck of a lot of nutritional value, and it’s been baked, heh, into us to, like, worry about our weight every time we put something in our mouths. As a result, I see a lot of women I know asking for a side salad instead of fries, or brown rice instead of mashed potatoes, and I’m like, “LADIES, I’m not saying you need to hoover a casserole dish full of scalloped potatoes into your piehole for every meal, but life is meant to be lived!” And you are not living if you don’t let yourself eat some form of potato on at least a semi regular basis. So join me in taking back potatoes, be they mashed, gratin-ed, twice-baked or deep fried, with one of these yummy recipes.

Is No Salad Safe? Woman Finds A Lizard In Her Lunch

Since hearing about the woman who found a frog in her Pret A Manger salad, I always inspect my greenery thoroughly before eating. But I’m starting to think that no salad is safe now that another woman has come forward claiming that she found a lizard arm and leg in her lunch at yet another NYC “fresh food” chain.

“After a few bites, I look down at my fork, and think, oh, ‘Is that a piece of asparagus?’And then I saw that it had eyes, and an arm.” Robin Sandusky said of her Guy and Gallard salad, which was delivered to her office from the location RIGHT NEAR FRISKY HQ. Um, I have eaten there before. Keep reading »

Watch This: A 2-Minute Tour Of What The World Eats For Breakfast

Breakfasts Around The World
Who's Hungry?

I’m obsessed with the habits and routines of different cultures, the things people take for granted as “normal” that might seem completely alien to someone across the border, the continent, or even across town. And hey, what’s more of a basic routine than breakfast? This fun video takes you on a visual tour of the typical breakfasts of countries around the world. Which country’s morning meal looked best to you? Egypt, Morocco, Iran, and Sweden all had me drooling profusely. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Wait, The Ice Cream Cleanse Is Real?

It sounds like one of those dreams you have where you’re mowing your way through a pint of ice cream and wake up and feel relieved that you didn’t just binge, only, it’s real. Kippy’s Ice Cream Shop, a vegan ice cream place in Los Angeles, has announced the first ever Ice Cream Cleanse. For $240, you get five pints of raw coconut-based ice cream in flavors like Orange Crème, Dark Chocolate with Himalayan Fire Salt and Superfood Ice Cream, meant to be consumed over four days. In addition to the ice cream, you are allowed to have organic, raw meals such as an avocado with mango and lemon juice, a salad or green juice if you’re starving. But really now, I wasn’t born yesterday. I’ve lived through Diet Tab and the cookie diet. How can 1,200 calories, 70 grams of fat and 125 grams of sugar a day be healthy for you? Keep reading »

Random Single Gal Recipe: Goopy Paltrow’s Sriracha & Lime Salmon With MomoFAKEu Brussels Sprouts

Random Single Gal Recipe: Goopy Paltrow's Sriracha & Lime Salmon With MomoFAKEu Brussels Sprouts

Here’s the honest truth about how I typically come up with recipes. I either eat something at a restaurant or at a friend’s home that I like and try to replicate it based on the primary flavors I taste and am able to identify, or I see a recipe somewhere, vaguely skim it, go to the grocery store without a list of ingredients and then wing it. I rarely follow a single recipe, I often combine elements of different recipes that I like, and am really only anal about sticking to a recipe when it comes to cook time and temperature. Measurements, especially for things like seasoning, are not exact, and I adjust them to taste. You should approach my recipes with the same sense of … I dunno … haphazardness.

That’s basically the story of how one of my favorite healthy and delicious random single gal recipes came to be. A few months ago, I saw a photo of a salmon recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook, noted the fact that the recipe had “Sriracha” and “lime” in its name and was like, “Oh yeah, that would go good together. I’ll try that!” And on another occasion, I had dinner at Momofuku in New York City, ordered their famed Brussels sprouts, devoured the whole bowl and have been refining my own, more simplistic version ever since. And now, I present both of these recipes to you, which pair together for the perfect single gal supper. (Obviously, you can make any of my recipes for more people, by doubling/tripling/etc. the ingredients and adjusting the cook time if necessary.) Keep reading »

I Would Go To Pizza Hut Just To Play With Their Touchscreen Menu

I Would Go To Pizza Hut Just To Play With Their Touchscreen Menu
If Only The Pizza Didn't Suck

Living in New York City means I have no reason to ever order from or eat at a chain pizza establishment like Pizza Hut. I mean, if you’re going to Pizza Hut when there are at least five better, more authentic and just as affordable pizza joints within spitting distance, you’ve got problems. However, while their pizza tastes like bland sauce-covered cardboard, Pizza Hut’s pizza-ordering technology is on the cutting edge. According to Eater, Pizza Hut “has teamed up with software developer Chaotic Moon Studios to offer a concept video that imagines what on-table, touchscreen ordering might look like.” And you know what it looks like? FUN. The touchscreen stands in for the usual, disgruntled Pizza Hut waiter, and allowed you to customize your pie with various finger swipes and taps. I’m still totally uninterested in eating at Pizza Hut, but should they ever implement this technology into their restaurants, I would totally stop in to assemble a complicated order on the touchscreen — and cancel it when I’m done.

Frisky Eats: Celebrate National Pancake Day With These Crazy Flapjacks

Something you may not know about me, Lucca. My favorite food is not kibble, or dessert kibble (cereal), or treats, or whatever my mom is having for lunch. My favorite food is PANCAKES. On my birthday every year, my mom makes them for me, but I just discovered there’s a whole other special pancake day and it’s TODAY, National Pancake Day. I think my mom has been hiding the existence of this day from me, which is rude and I’ll deal with her later. For now, though, I present to you 20 pancake recipes that I would totally make in celebration of this momentous occasion, if my paws were able to manage a griddle. Stupid evolution.

5 Reasons You Should Propose To Your Partner With A Macaroni & Cheese Ring Instead Of A Diamond

This amazing macaroni & cheese ring has been making the rounds online this week. Many people seem to think it’s just a silly little novelty accessory, but I happen to find it extremely romantic. In fact, my boyfriend and I don’t want to get married, but if he were to get down on one knee with this ring, well, I’d probably reconsider. Here are five reasons that everyone should ditch the whole “diamond engagement ring” trend and propose with macaroni & cheese rings instead: Keep reading »

James Franco Salami On White & 3 Other Celeb Sandwiches Coming Soon To A Deli Near You

In 1931, Winston Churchill predicted a future in which all the world’s meat would be grown in labs. But he never predicted they would be grown from celebrity tissue samples. Bitelab.org, a company that grows artisanal salami from tissue samples, wants us all to eat more celebrity meat. They have been hard at work developing the technology to create high-quality charcuterie from your favorite celebrities’ DNA. All it takes is a quick biopsy of, say, James Franco. In a process by which they isolate stem cells, they grow cultures into in-vitro meats, which can be dry aged and spiced into the finest sandwich stuffers. Keep reading »

Random Single Gal Recipe: Pretty In Pink Pasta With Beets, Zucchini, And Mozzarella

Pretty In Pink Beet Pasta Recipe

I had a “Chopped” moment in the kitchen last night when I realized I had a few beets in the fridge that I really needed to use, but — cue Ted Allen voiceover —  only the stovetop of my oven was working, so roasting was out of the question. I’d been feeling like pasta for awhile, so I sauteed the beets in a pan with some zucchini and garlic, added some cheese, and ended up with a seriously delicious dinner. This recipe is super easy, super healthy, and best of all, super PINK. It also tastes great the next day as a chilled pasta salad (like, “Oh, I guess I’m eating lunch at 10:30 AM ’cause I can’t wait any longer” — that great). Read on for the recipe! Keep reading »
