So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad. My inner monologue went something like this (in Chris Rock’s voice): “That ain’t no motherfuckin’ sandwich!” I sent the link to Amelia who immediately shared my anger and responded with, “COME THE FUCK ON.” Soon Ami chimed in that she had similar food rage issues with Kraft Singles, and an Angry Foods slideshow was born.

My favorite thing about Random Single Gal Recipes is how randomly I post them! Anyway, I love to cook and I live alone and just because I’m single doesn’t mean I don’t deserve an extravagant home-cooked meal, okay? So sometimes, when I come up with something yummy to eat and easy to make I post the recipe here! And then you can cook and eat it by yourself or with friends or your dang significant other if you want. Here is my latest: roasted pork tenderloin and kale salad. I love pork tenderloin because there are always leftovers, it’s relatively lean (I may have made that up), you can repurpose it for tacos and stuff, and it’s easy as all hell to cook. As for kale — I’ve always liked it steamed, but DAMN, does it make for an excellent salad green. SO crunchy and tasty. Get my recipes after the jump! Keep reading »

Just as I was kinda sorta maybe starting to get sick of the cake pop trend, I am introduced to the concept of pie pops, and my faith in ridiculous-desserts-on-a-stick is restored. This pie pop mold lets you bake mini pies and fill them with anything from fresh berries to Nutella to meat (or, if you’re feeling really wild, a mixture of all of the above). I feel a pie pop party coming on… [$24.99, ThinkGeek]
My acne-ridden youth (okay, fine, it was like 20 zits total) engrained in me that chocolate was a pimple-flaring, oil-producing skincare devil to be avoided at all costs. In my more recent, better-skinned years I’ve turned to the dark, 80% cocoa variety to cure me of late-afternoon nap compulsion and early-morning sugar cravings, but I never suspected that the chocolate could actually be to thank for my clearer, more radiant complexion. A new report in the Journal of Nutrition discovers what may in fact be the Best News Ever: not only do women who eat more chocolate tend to have smoother, more hydrated skin, but chocolate itself is choc-full of antioxidants that help to shield skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Inspiration can be found in the least likely places — like, um, frozen yogurt. Pinkberry is good, but is it good enough to provide a solid foundation on which to launch a collection of jewelry? To honor the grand opening of Pinkberry’s first outer-borough location, Brooklyn-based jewelry brand Sorrelli fashioned earrings, necklaces, and bracelets to be sold both online and from a pop-up shop outside the new store in Park Slope. The pieces, made from berry-colored Swarovski crystals and antique gold, will retail from $38.40 for a pair of earrings to a seven-inch bracelet for $74.40. The collection isn’t the most … refined, and I’m not entirely sure how it’s meant to channel the beloved yogurt (other than, you know, being pink), but hey, what did you really expect from costume jewelry inspired by food?
