As a single gal, cooking for one is fun, but there’s a problem: many ingredients aren’t sold that way. Herbs, for example. So many great recipes call for fresh herbs, but in small doses — unfortunately, they’re rarely sold in small amounts at the grocery store. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to toss excess herbs that have dried out or gone rancid after only a few days of sitting in the fridge. Such a waste. If only there was an easy way to keep herbs fresh that didn’t involve rigging a makeshift greenhouse in your refrigerator. Oh wait, there is! This set of three herb pods from the Spoon Sisters stores your herbs and keeps them fresh for up to three weeks. Plus, the windowed design put them on display, which would totally give my fridge — which is mostly stocked with Diet Coke and hot sauce — a dose of pretty.
Last week, in honor of our mission to “Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen,” I asked you to send me your favorite recipes for a forthcoming slideshow. Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice. Instead, I’m posting the recipes over the course of the week — and there’s still two days left, so you still have time to send me your recipes (to email@example.com)! Today we’ve got 11 recipes from readers, for dishes like minestrone soup, braised pork chops, zucchini bread, and much more. Needless to say, I am starving now.
Men know how to cook, because we have the right incentive to cook. Once upon a time, when men were men and women were women and men were cartoon gorillas and women were porcelain princesses, the man made money and the woman made casseroles. Men stayed out of the kitchen, and women stayed out of the workplace.
But times change. For instance: in the 1960s, people drove their car from the suburbs to an office building in the city. Today, we fly in jet packs from blimp cities to subterranean bunkers deep beneath the scorched earth. Also, women are working more and cooking less, and men are working less and cooking more. But let me be clear, we’re cooking because it impress the hell out of women. Are women too easily impressed? Maybe. Keep reading »
I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years, and have been dating about as long. Being a vegetarian isn’t weird, and dating shouldn’t be, but sometimes dating-while-vegetarian can throw a bit of a wrench in the game.

Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice.

Today we’ve got six seriously yummy sounding (and looking!) chicken recipes from Rachel, Kristen, Emily, EscapeHatches, Mschro, and Sarah. Now which one am I going to have for dinner tonight…
Gather round children and I shall share with you the secrets of the world’s laziest cook. That’s me! I come from a short line of lazy chefs. Namely, my mom, whose favorite prepared meal is Fritos and onion dip and my dad who makes a mean cereal and milk. Needless to say, I am self-taught in the kitchen. My cooking limitations became more troublesome after a series of breakups with boyfriends whom I persuaded to cook for me left all alone to fend for myself for every meal. I had no option but to learn how to become a kick ass lazy chef. I usually end up dining out or getting take out — ideal for the eater willing to exert minimal effort. On the rare occasion that I feel moved to cook (I do possess a preternatural feel for building flavor) or I am forced to prepare a meal (like if I just got sex or I’m trying to!), I have a few go-to meals that I can easily prepare using my one pan, three bowls, set of dull steak knives, and the other pathetic contents of my kitchen. Allow yourself to be dazzled by my never-before-seen collection of lazy people recipes. Bon appetit, lazy peeps!

Remember Bonkers? Clearly Canadian? Planter’s Cheez Puffs? As much as you might love them, you can’t get them anymore. The food gods have declared these products, and the eight others on this list snack food non grata. Try as you might, you won’t be able to find these tasty (and, okay, not so tasty) treats anywhere. We’ve compiled some of our most-loved, but we want to hear what snack foods you miss the most. Tell us your gone-but-not-forgotten favorites in the comments.
Men and food: the relationship is deep and intertwined. Ever since the days when a man clubbed a pterodactyl on the head and dragged it back to the cave for her to pop in the deep-fryer, women have known that food is very important to them. Possibly, dare I say, even more important than blowjobs?
Yet a man’s relationship with food causes us Frisky ladies to ask many questions. How can they not understand why we need to eat chocolate cupcakes every day during our period? Why do they think Nacho Cheese Combos count as food? And what should we whip up in the kitchen if we want to get laid?
I wrangled up a few dude friends — including a couple guys I dated — and picked their brains for answers. And, in the process, I learned that I’m making mashed potatoes all wrong, apparently.
