Frisky Eats: 10 Fish Recipes For Potential Pescatarians

I do a lot of cooking at home, but as a creature of habit, I have to sometimes push myself to try new things. In an effort to do just that, and cut back on my chicken and red meat intake, I’ve been trying my hand at cooking a lot more fish.

Frisky Eats: 11 Mouthwatering Kebabs For Food-On-A-Stick Enthusiasts

What’s not to love about a kebab? First of all, it’s common knowledge that anything served on a stick is instantly more delicious and fun to eat, but they’re also great for parties, keeping kids’ (or immature adults’) attention at the dinner table, or just combining interesting flavors in a new way. It might be a bit too early to fire up the grill some of these recipes call for, but most ingredients can be oven roasted and/or seared in a pan for similar results. Ready to get cookin’?

Frisky Eats: 17 Recipes For Puppy Chow/Muddy Buddies

Amelia dropped a bomb on The Frisky staff today: she’s never heard of puppy chow. “What, is it supposed to look like dog food?” she asked. Oh, silly Amelia! We explained puppy chow is a variation on Chex mix where you combine melted chocolate or syrup with candy and add yummy ingredients to give it different flavors. It’s popular at Girl Scout bake sales everywhere!

Puppy chow also goes by the names reindeer food, muddy buddies and (inexplicably) snowman poop, so I don’t blame her for being confused. I did some deep Pinterest-ing and found 17 different puppy-snow-reindeer-poop recipes to help Amelia get with the program and give myself some snacking ideas. Dig in!
