Care To Try A Beer-Flavored Starbucks Latte?

Pumpkin spice lattes not your thing? No worries: Starbucks is currently testing out its new Dark Barrel Latte, which is inspired by “the rise of craft beers” and meant to taste like “roasted malt” (a.k.a Guinness covered in whipped cream).

10 Things I Learned Working At A Tea Shop

I spent a good chunk of last year working at a gigantic tea store chain. Since lots of great conversations happen over hot beverages, I’d associated tea with lots of special moments in my life, but I hardly knew anything about where it really comes from. From my first day on the job, I wa…

Girl Scout Cookie-Flavored Nesquik Is A Thing Now

Nesquik has debuted a new chocolate milk beverage we are welcoming with open arms and clogged arteries: Girl Scout cookie-flavored milk. (At least it’s lowfat Girl Scout cookie-flavored milk.) The two limited edition flavors are based on the popular cookies Thin Mints and Samoas. That’s right, I wrote based on. Although the Scouts will receive royaltie…

Adorable Children Try Vegemite For The First Time, Are Not Impressed

“Vegemite is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives,” begins the Wikipedia page for noxious spreadable Vegemite.

Frisky Eats: 15 Compound Butter Recipes To Make Everything You Eat Better

So it turns out you guys are as big of freaks about butter as I am! I really did feel weird writing my Ode to Butter until a rash of you swooped in and expressed how dedicated to butter you are, too. There’s nothing like the Internet to build communities you didn’t know you needed.

Frisky Eats: 10 Yummy Things To Make With Corn

Summer produce is just the best. Peaches, watermelon, plums, cherries, eggplant, green beans, tomatoes and, my personal favorite, CORN. During the summer months, I find myself serving corn-on-the-cob as a side with at least half of my home cooked meals, boiling it for only a few minutes so the kernels keep some of their crunch,…

What Your First Date Food Order Says About You

First dates are petrifying. You don’t know each other, there may be no chemistry and things have the ability to go downhill very, very quickly. The upside is that if it’s a dinner date, you at least get some yummy food out of the deal, right? WRONG. When it comes to eating on a first…

An Ode To Butter

I’m coming out. I’m a buttersexual. Or, I mean, my tongue is, but my tongue is part of me, so. What I’m saying is, I’m just not at all attracted to canola oil. Jam is great and maybe once in a while I’m sort of interested in it on my toast, but in general, I’m…

Frisky Eats: Drizzle It With Honey

I recently bought a big ol’ 24 oz. jar of local honey at the farmer’s market and can’t wait to dig into the amber goodness. So far, I’ve managed to drizzle a little over Greek yogurt. I know, delicious but dull. Time to sweeten the pot with some ingenious honey-based recipes.
