First-Date Foods That Take Romance off the Menu

Let’s be honest—first dates are horrible and humiliating experiences. Trying to do and say all the right things so that the other person doesn’t think you’re a complete freak is exhausting and no one likes trying to make small talk with a virtual stranger, no matter how good looking he or she might be. I…

You’ll Have A Ball (And Eat Some) At The Testicle Festival

If you’re in or around Oakdale, CA, today and enjoy eating rocky mountain oysters, make sure to stop by the Rotary’s Testicle Festival. Approximately 400 lbs. of “cowboy caviar,” aka bull testicles, will be marinated in red wine, garlic, olive oil, and herbs overnight, breaded, and then deep fried. The event is a little pricey…

What’s For Lunch? Seven Reusable Lunchbags And Lunchboxes

This is your mother speaking. You really shouldn’t be getting takeout for lunch every day. Not only are you throwing all of your money away, but you’re not eating all of your food groups! Why don’t you make something yummy for dinner and then pack it in a cute, reusable bag and take it to…

This Is Why I Love This Is Why You’re Fat

Let’s face it. Most websites suck. Doncha think? Generally, I especially loathe those wear-their-gimmick-on-their-sleeve sites, the ones that were created just so someone could get a book deal. But I love me some This Is Why You’re Fat. It’s hardcore, wet and sloppy, extreme, take-no-prisoners, get down and dirty food porn. And I, for one,…

The Best Frozen Foods In All Of Freezerland

March is National Frozen Foods Month. Who knew?! We here at The Frisky love our frozen foods — and not just because we’re too lazy to cook. Never in a million years could I make a vegetable lasagna as delicious as the ones I get in my grocery store’s freezer section. After the jump, 10…

Celebrate Black History Month With…Ham Hocks?

So we’ve all heard of celebrating the holidays with traditional food items. Thanksgiving has turkey. Christmas has ham. St. Patty’s Day has beer and, uh, corned beef. Black History Month apparently has collard greens and catfish. Rainbow Grocery Store decided to print the dumbest ad featuring “black people food” in what they consider to be…

Eating In: Valentine’s Day Dinner At Home

We all know Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic times of the year, and if you want to really turn up the heat, you should consider preparing dinner at home. I know you’re probably thinking, “What about the expensive restaurant and reservations made months in advance?” Scratch all that off your date book.

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Edible Aphrodisiacs

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor. I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady — -a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also,

Crave: Sunny Seed Drops

We’ve had a hankering for all things sweet since we were in single digits, and candy was one of the first words we knew how to spell. Since we weren’t born yesterday, it’s hard to surprise or impress us when it comes to the sugary stuff. When a friend told us to try these chocolate-covered…

Excuse Me, Bartender? There A Piece of A** In My Drink

In the land of booze, there’s no doubt that sex sells. We’re used to seeing the half-clad woman on a billboard, covering her crotch with a bottle of vodka. But why do we combine drink names with sex? Is it because of the good laugh we all have when asking a hot bartender, “Can you…

What Would You Give Up For Love?

Candlelight, red wine, freshly made pasta. Flirting at a small table in a corner infrequently visited by the waiter. Such are the makings of a great date.

But not if you can’t eat what they’re serving. What if you must start with a 10-minute interrogation: Can the scaloppini be prepared without a dusting…

A Few Questions For Casserole Queen Emily Farris

When we think of casseroles, the first thing that comes to mind is a green been monstrosity that an aunt used to force upon us at Thanksgiving. Just imagining it makes us ill. But Emily Farris is set on changing our minds about casseroles, or “hotdishes” as Minnesotans like her call them. Her book, Casserole

Necessary Luxuries: What We Won’t Give Up, Recession Be Damned

I wouldn’t consider myself to be a Grade A snob, despite what some may think. I may carry an expensive bag or be sporting expensive shoes, but chances are that I’m wearing Forever 21 everywhere else. I prefer a diner sandwich to a fancy meal, have cut myself off from mani/pedis and learned to polish…

Crave: Dough Ray Me Cookies

I’m seriously addicted to these itty-bitty cookies. Each kind is named after friends of the company’s owner, Jon Chazen. “It’s a way to honor them,” he says. “I don’t name them after anyone I was intimate with—no ex-girlfriends, not even my wife—and she understands.” Jon worked at Barneys New York selling women’s shoes, but one…

Dealbreaker: The Manorexic

There are so many things involved in attraction. From clothing to chemistry, a never-ending list of items can be turn-offs. But sometimes differences are a turn-on, from magnets to men, you know what they say: opposites attract. Still, some things are so repellent, they’re deal breakers.

I truly believe that the number one reaso…

Your Child Is What You Eat

What you eat around the time you get pregnant could influence whether you have a boy or a girl, a study published in Proceedings B, a biological research journal, reported. And because diets have changed due to industrialization (Hamburgers! French fries! Sour Patch Kids!), diet could be a possible explanation for the falling proportion of…
