I have made it pretty clear how I feel about mayo (see Frisky Eats: Chicken Salad), but I was recently sent Just Mayo, a vegan garlic mayo, to try out and it has me dreaming of BLTs, one of the only foods that I actually like with mayo. But let’s not limit ourselves to just any BLTs…
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
Happy National Tequila Day! Tequila cocktails have always been my go-to drink when I’m looking for something refreshing with a kick. In fact, I have a half-full bottle of Sauza Blue sitting on my desk as we speak (no joke), and on top of that, “You and Tequila” by Kenny Chesney is my favorite song of all time. Coincidence? Nope. I’m not alone though, because the US alone has 45 million tequila drinkers, and consumes twice as much tequila as Mexico. So here at The Frisky, we’ve compiled a list of some of kickass tequila cocktails— yes, including tasty margaritas— to help you pay tribute to this very important occasion. Click through the gallery to get your drank on. Cheers!
I love bananas, but my sister loathes them. If you try to bring a banana into her car, she will make you eat it before and dispose of the peel on the sidewalk. To her horror, I put bananas in everything. Pancakes, smoothies, ice cream sundaes, you name it, it’s probably better with a banana. And today I’ve discovered 10 new recipes to torture her!
I’ve said before that I drink alcohol for the variety of tastes, but what I haven’t disclosed yet is that I am obsessed with putting booze into my cakes (also: I am obsessed with cake). Flavor matching is at the heart of mixing cocktails, and translating cocktail flavors into cake is basically the best party trick ever. This is some intermediate-level baking that we’re talking about, but I encourage you to try it because 1) practice makes perfect and 2) armed with this knowledge, you will be able to make the most spectacular cakes of your entire life.

When I was a little girl, my grandmother would always put out a plate of cookies and figs for me to eat when I went to visit. Now my mom does it, and soon enough, I’m sure I’ll do it for my kids. Not only are figs healthy, but they’re sweet enough to be a dessert, and they’re even better when paired with something savory. After recently eating an absolutely to-die-for bacon-wrapped fig, I did a little research to see what other kinds of dishes called for the healthy fruit, and I found tons that had my mouth watering. Here are 15 flavorful fig recipes I can’t wait to test out.
