Exclusive! I Got Drunk With Big Ang And It Was Amazing

Our Lady Of Staten Island!
Another Round On Big Ang!

I’ve been on a no alcohol cleanse for the last few weeks, but I don’t think anyone can blame me for falling off the wagon for a few hours to get drunk with Big Ang. The star of Bravo’s “Mob Wives” and “Miami Monkey” stopped by the office to mix some of her signature cocktails (including a few made with her own line of wine) for me, Robert from Celebuzz and Deena from Vibe Vixen. Watch as Ang’s “Italian Soda” concoction (red wine and cream soda, SO GOOD, seriously) works its magic on my newly lowered tolerance, while we discuss reality TV drama and why 50 is the new 30. Afterwards, Ang gave me her phone number, but she still hasn’t responded to my text asking if we can be besties for life. Oh well. At least I’ll always have that Italian Soda recipe to remind me of this very special day.

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.

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.
