The Aurora Borealis Cocktail Is The Coolest Drink Ever

Want to know a neat trick? Apparently if you add pink lemonade concentrate to gin (or vodka) and tonic, you’ll have a pretty pink cocktail that turns into a crazy bright aquamarine OUTER SPACE DRINK under a black light. So round up your friends, mix up some of these Aurora Borealis cocktails, re-watch the footage of the Curiosity landing, and play a rousing game of “Pin the mohawk on Bobak Ferdowsi.” Cheers! [Boing Boing]

One of the weird byproducts of my ADD is that sometimes I cook just because I need to do something and making something — in this case, edible — gives me a beginning, middle, and end to focus on. So this weekend, out of the blue, I felt a deep, burning desire to focus my energy on making a cherry compote. I have never made one before. This one is a hodgepodge of, like, four different recipes I read online. Then, as a reward and because I didn’t know what else to do with it, I mixed my compote with cheap champagne, which I always have stocked. And lemme tell ya — sometimes my ADD is good for something because this cherry compote cocktail was yummy. And I still have plenty left over for cocktails the rest of the week. Enjoy!

My favorite thing about Random Single Gal Recipes is how randomly I post them! Anyway, I love to cook and I live alone and just because I’m single doesn’t mean I don’t deserve an extravagant home-cooked meal, okay? So sometimes, when I come up with something yummy to eat and easy to make I post the recipe here! And then you can cook and eat it by yourself or with friends or your dang significant other if you want. Here is my latest: roasted pork tenderloin and kale salad. I love pork tenderloin because there are always leftovers, it’s relatively lean (I may have made that up), you can repurpose it for tacos and stuff, and it’s easy as all hell to cook. As for kale — I’ve always liked it steamed, but DAMN, does it make for an excellent salad green. SO crunchy and tasty. Get my recipes after the jump! Keep reading »

If Pinterest Was Real
A cautionary poem. Read More »

I love Pinterest, but certain recipes and DIYs make me a little suspicious. Crockpot tiramisu? Really? Five-minute French tip manicure? Riiiiiight. My Pinterest side eye has been hilariously validated by a writer named Sonja Foust, also known as the “Pintester.” For the past six months, Foust has been testing recipes, crafts, and style tips she finds on Pinterest and writing up hilariously honest reviews of the process and end results. Spoiler alert: her attempts usually don’t turn out anything like the gleaming, flawless pictures you see on Pinterest (the picture above is her attempt at “Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake”). From nail art to wine jello shots, she’s trying everything, unabashedly failing, and bringing some much needed humor into the frighteningly perfect world of Pinterest. Sonja, we raise our mason jar of slightly disappointing homemade sangria to you! [Via Laughing Squid]
