An Ode To Iced Tea

Today is, without a doubt, the most important holiday of the year—National Iced Tea Day. I drink so much iced tea that it’s permanently in my blood stream. I just can’t get enough of the refreshing stuff. When I first moved to New York from North Carolina, I ordered iced tea at a restaurant and…

Recipe: Sweet And Simple Basil Lemonade

As they say, when life gives you lemons … well, you know the drill. Turn this classic warm weather drink into something gourmet and high-class by focusing on basil flavors. Basil might seem a bit off for a lemonade recipe, but it functions similarly to mint when crushed and coupled with sugar, lending a fresh…

Naming A Cereal “Muffin Tops” Seems Like A Bad Move

Blueberry Muffin Tops cereal has been around for a few years, but we just noticed it at the store and can’t believe a company would name a cereal after the fatty flesh that hangs out over the waistline of pants, especially since it doesn’t look like the tops of muffins. What’s next, Love Handles ice…

A Doll In The Kitchen

If cooking’s your thing, you better have the tools to get the job done right. Sure, regular ole measuring cups can ensure you mix up correct amounts of flour and sugar, but will they make you smile when you pull open your kitchen cabinet? Because these Russian Doll measuring cups will.

Random Single Gal Recipe: Pasta Al Limone

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

Chill Out With Cuisinart’s Cute Ice Cream Maker

We like eating ice cream year-round, but something about licking a fudge pop while wearing gloves feels a little tragic. Then summer comes and our dedication to ice cream becomes mainstream, rather than sad. Stick it to fair-weather ice cream fans by getting creative with Cuisinart’s bright ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet maker. Thi…

Magical Uni-Corn On The Cob!

Ordinarily, we wouldn’t call eating corn a “magical” experience. (Delicious, perhaps.) But these super cute Uni-Corn Holders might just make the act of chomping into a cob transcend the ordinary. Keep your fingers butter-free by stabbing colorful unicorn horns into the sides of the summertime treat. At the very least, these festive utensils will add…

These Are Not The Cupcakes I Want For My Birthday

I’m not even sure what to say here, except that cupcake makers sure are getting creative these days. [BuzzFeed]…

Finally, Cupcakes For Men

We thought everyone liked cupcakes, but apparently some guys find the usual variety a little too cute and unmanly for their tastes. To compensate for the large amount of “girly” cupcake shops and to ensure that men can eat cupcakes without feeling any less masculine, David Arrick started Butch Bakery. The New York City-based company,…

Best Cooked Al Dente

When it comes to pasta there’s spaghetti, bow ties, pin-wheels, spirals, and now … boobs. That’s right, this chi-chi shaped pasta is only $10 from Fred Flare. It gives a whole to meaning to the question, “What’s for dinner?”…

There’s Good Luck And A Census To Fill Out In Your Future

You may think you’re safe from the Census’ over-saturation of advertising at that dingy, down-the-block Chinese restaurant. Well, you’re wrong. The Census is looking to learn more about America, but it seems they have our irresistible urge to open up fortune cookies all figured out. I think some others may want to take this creative…

Snacks At The Movies Should Be Avoided, Even If They’re Healthy

A movie exec over at Sony is trying to convince theater owners to sell healthy snacks instead of popcorn, and theater managers have been receptive, but whether patrons will hop concession stand lines to get a bucket of cauliflower is debatable. Honestly though, after working in a movie theater for about a year when I…

Human Milk Cheese? Cat Stew? 10 Truly Terrible Culinary Ideas

Chef Daniel Angerer once kicked Bobby Flay’s butt on “Iron Chef.” But if you visit his Klee Brasserie in New York City and try one of his signature dishes, you might be a little surprised to hear about one of the ingredients—cheese made from his wife’s breast milk. “I prepared a little canapé of breast-milk…

Girl Talk: When Did Food And Sex Become Mortal Enemies?

A typical Saturday night for me can be summed up one of two ways: food or sex. Do I skip dinner and start drinking, adopt the “eating is cheating” adage so I can feel thin and attractive and get tipsy quicker, thus increasing the chances I’ll get naked later, or do I cave and ope…

Do Yoga And Booze Make A Good Cocktail?

I made a bunch of resolutions for myself for 2010, among them to attend yoga at least three times a week. For a few months last year, I actually made it to class four times a week, but the further we got into the dark season, my winter doldrums set in and I just couldn’t…

Eating Green Just Got Much Easier

Low-output shower heads kind of suck and fluorescent lighting can make a girl look tragic really fast, so some of us justify our unwillingness to switch over and help the environment out just a little. But when the rare opportunity to stop taking total advantage of the planet while enjoying ourselves comes along, there’s really…

Giving New Meaning To “Food Porn”

The link to this recipe on Food & Wine’s website was tweeted by editor-in-chief Dana Cowin, who asked her followers, “Pornographic or artistic? F&W pub’d this pix of Eric Ripert’s salmon app. in Jan issue & have gotten some flack.” Heavens, why? [via Twitter]…

Breaking News! Taco Bell Will Make You Skinny!

Goddamn do I love Taco Bell’s 7 Layer Burrito. Cheese and beans and beef and sour cream and hot sauce and oh-so-much-more wrapped in a nutritionless flour tortilla … mmm mmmmmm! It has been, oh, three years since I had one of these hot pockets of deliciousness because Taco Bell, my friends, is straight-up NASTY…

What’s The Best Holiday Dish You Chowed Down On?

Ah, the holiday season! It’s full of presents, family, and best of all food, lots and lots of food. And it’s not your average fare. At parties people really bust out their best recipes. Fat intake flies out the window, and my diet becomes basically, cream, butter, sugar, and pork. Mmm! Although I can’t really…
