Frisky Eats: 10 Tasty Noodle Recipes

When I was growing up, my family had a tradition called “Noodle Night,” which involved my mom ordering every noodle dish on the menu from a local Thai restaurant while my brothers and I bounced around the living room screaming, “NOODLE NIGHT! NOODLE NIIIIIIGHT!” When the noodles arrived, we would dig into the to-go boxes like monsters, slurping and laughing madly while continuing to scream “NOODLE NIGHT!” with noodles hanging out of our mouths.

Now that I’m an adult, I still feel very strongly that noodles are something to get excited about. That’s why I rounded up 10 mouthwatering noodle recipes to help you cook up your own noodle night. Click through to check ‘em out…

Frisky Eats: 5 Grocery List Staples You Should Make At Home Instead

Buying pre-packaged kitchen staples like hummus, peanut butter, and pasta sauce at the store is easy and convenient. When you’re tired or in a rush, making tortillas from scratch is probably the last thing you want to do. But if you can carve out a little time to make some of these foods at home, I swear you won’t regret it. Making these basic foods yourself is healthier, because you choose the ingredients (and can leave out a ton of the chemicals, sodium, and corn syrup that the pre-made versions are often filled with), and it’s a great way to save money. It’s also — dare I say it? — kind of fun. I like to spend about an hour every Sunday night listening to music and whipping up a few recipes to snack on throughout the week (using my spatula as a faux microphone, naturally). Want to give it a try? Click through to get the scoop on five basic foods to make at home, plus my favorite recipes for each!

5 Celebrities And The Cocktails I Imagine Them To Be

We love a good cocktail just as much as we love analyzing the inner workings of celebrities, based off the personality traits presented to us via Us Weekly, Billy Bush’s incisive commentary on “Access Hollywood,” and their one true gift to us plebes — their bodies of work. Maybe as you flip through a waterlogged InTouch, you wondered to yourself “What would Reese Witherspoon be if she were a drink?” Rest easy, friends. We’ve taken the legwork out of life’s complicated quandaries. Curious? Click through…

Frisky Eats: 10 To-Die-For Nutella Recipes

Nutella is ridiculously good straight out of the jar (I’ve found it pairs particularly well with a large spoon and a terrible rom com after a bad day), but it’s even better in cookies, brownies, cheesecakes, milkshakes, muffins, and dips. Don’t believe me? Click through for 10 recipes that will have you drooling in no time!

Frisky Eats: 8 Wonderful One Pot Meals

As much as I love to cook, I really, really hate to clean. My poor boyfriend often takes care of the post-dinner chaos in the kitchen (in related news, he is a saint), but lately I’ve been looking for ways to cut down on cleanup as much as possible so all either of us have to do after a meal is chill out on the couch and talk about how good it was. The answer? One pot meals. Cooking all your ingredients in one skillet or casserole dish means fast, easy prep and pretty much zero cleanup time. Sounds good to me! Click through for eight delish recipes that can be cooked up in just one pot…

Frisky Eats: 10 Veggie Burger Recipes You’ll Want To Eat Every Day

I am shamelessly addicted to homemade veggie burgers for 3 reasons:

  1. They’re super easy to make. Some recipes are a little time-consuming, but they rarely require any technique more complicated than “mash all these things together in a bowl,” which is fun.
  2. They’re mega healthy. Veggie burgers can be made with anything from beans to quinoa to rice to lentils to cauliflower (or any combination of these things). They’re basically piles of veggies formed into patties. So good for you.
  3. The biggest reason of all? They are DELICIOUS. Seriously, it’s amazing how much flavor you can pack into these things. Served with melted cheese, a simple flavored mayo, and sweet potato fries, I could happily eat them every day of the week (and sometimes I do!).
