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,…

DestapaBanana, perhaps one of the more brilliant food creations of our time, allows you to fill a banana with chocolate, caramel, yogurt, or prepackaged filling of your choice (and no, despite its suspicious appearance, it is not a sex toy).

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…

RIP Society: Zebra Steaks Are Now The Other White Meat

Coming to a health food store near you (maybe): legally farmed zebra meat. A food supplier in the UK has been selling Burchell’s zebra steaks, which come from farms in South Africa.

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.

Happy National Tequila Day! Tequila cocktails have always been my go-to drink when I’m looking for something refreshing with a kick.

Frisky Eats: 10 Recipes That Are Driving Me Bananas

I love bananas, but my sister loathes them. If you try to bring a banana into her car, she will make you eat it before and dispose of the peel on the sidewalk. To her horror, I put bananas in everything. Pancakes, smoothies, ice cream sundaes, you name it, it’s probably better with a banana.

Hershey announced last week that its prices would increase due to a rise in the cost of chocolate ingredients.

9 Of The Nastiest Things People Have Found In Their Lunch Salads

Last week, a man allegedly found a rusty nail in his to-go salad from a Manhattan restaurant named, appropriately, “Just Salad.” What is it about salads that attract this ickiness? It seems that every few weeks somebody finds some kind of critter or other not-so-salad-y item amid their lettuce, chickpeas and chopped tomatoes. Make sure…
