Blake Lively Sabotages Ryan Reynolds With Cupcakes

“[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better.”

Blake Lively jokes at a “Green Lantern” press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she’s sorta joking here. Something tells me that might actually have been the motivation. [People]

But Ryan Reynolds didn’t mind. Here his response after the jump Keep reading »

Reader Call Out: Random Single Gal Snack Recipes!

Earlier this week, our marketing coordinator, knowing my favorite pastime is cooking/eating, sent me an excited email about the snack she invented one particularly hungry afternoon. “So, in the past week strawberries have been amazing,” she wrote. “I decided to put a smear of fresh goat cheese on a Nilla Wafer and topped it with half a strawberry — it was AMAZING. Like a tiny cheese cake without any of the work!” This got me thinking that A) I need to buy some strawberries at the farmer’s market this weekend (my fridge is always stocked with goat cheese) and B) this would be a great introduction for my first request for reader submissions for our “Random Single Gal Recipes” feature. So, {encode=”amelia@thefrisky.com” title=”Email me”} your favorite snack recipe — Dips! Mini-quesadillas! Other tiny edibles! — and I’ll post my favorites next week. (For reference, “bag of Fritos” does not count, but “Frito Pie” does.) Get ready nom-nom. Keep reading »

Blake Lively Smuggles Sweet Potato Sauce

“I’m always traveling, and I get so excited when I find a new spice or a new sauce. This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn’t send it because the FDA didn’t approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, “OK, can you buy a teddy bear and cut it open and put it in and send it?” They’re like, “No, we are not the drug cartel; we’re not sending you your sweet potato sauce in a teddy bear.”

We All Scream For (Cold!) Ice Cream

Jamie Oliver might not approve of noshing ice cream straight from the pint. Then again, Aunt Flo never visits Jamie once a month, does she? With the summer months fast approaching, a girl’s got to do her best to keep Cherry Garcia from melting into a drippy, sticky mess. But this ingenious ice cream pint chiller will keep your cold carton encased in aluminum while you stuff your face — and save you the trouble of washing an extra bowl. It’s perfect for those nights when ice cream won’t last outside the freezer longer than Britney’s Vegas marriage. (Tampons and “The Notebook” DVD sold separately.)

I’m Not Impressed By The Triple Double Oreo

Who does Nabisco think they’re fooling with their new Oreo? Word on the interwebs is that Oreo is releasing a new varietal this summer called the Triple Double Oreo, which features three layers of cookie, two layers of cream — one white cream and one chocolate cream. They are billing it as “the most indulgent Oreo in existence.” Puh-lease. I am so unimpressed. Those of us who were alive in the ’80s, especially those of us who had a raging sweet tooth and/or a weight problem (I had both!) remember the Big Stuff Oreo. Now that was an indulgent Oreo. It was one behemoth cookie with enough cream to clog a grown man’s artery. How do I know? Why, I ate one every day. I even snuck a second sometimes when my parents were sleeping. Did I mention I was an overweight child? Go ahead, Nabisco. Release your Triple Double Oreo and call it what you will. But don’t think we’ve forgotten the meaning of true Oreo indulgence.

Random Single Gal Recipe: Creamy Linguine With Roasted Tomatoes, Peas & Mozzarella

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 things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week), I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.

Cupcake Vodka? Yes, Please!

Oh, yes, ladies, cupcake vodka is an actual thing! Cupcake Vineyards sells 14 wines but also vodkas with “creamy cupcake undertones.” OK, we’re listening. Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil’s food, and lemon chiffon. Obviously the Cupcake Vodka PR people need to send The Frisky sample bottles so we can — hiccup! — deliver a full review to our readers. [Cupcake Vodka via The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Adds Women-Only Division

Score one for the ladies … I think? The venerable Nathan’s hot dog eating contest, held each year on the 4th of July, is now adding a women’s-only division. Women only comprise two of the world’s top 10 competitive eaters. The Major League Eating organization — yes, that actually exists — thinks the ladies should have to compete against each other at the annual International Hot Dog Eating Contest at Nathan’s Famous on Coney Island, not the eight other men. “Serena Williams didn’t have to beat Roger Federer to win the Wimbledon title, and we don’t think Sonya Thomas (‘The Black Widow’) should have to beat Joey Chestnut,” said Richard Shea, the MLE’s president. Sure, why not? Hooray for feminism! We’ve broken the ketchup ceiling! We can take on anything! [NY Post] Keep reading »
