Caramelized Zucchini Pizza

This “sayonara summer” recipe was so delicious, that I ended it up making it twice in one week. The first time was on a Saturday night, feeding some slightly intoxicated friends. I informed them that this was not drunk food, but they persisted and claimed it the best pizza ever. The next morning, upon eating…

Funk Food: Roasted Veg Quinoa Salad

You know what’s freaky? Quinoa. It’s like risotto with creepy tails. The sperm of the small pasta world. I never know what to make of it or what those tails really are. And don’t even get me started on the quinoa from hell, red quinoa. Racism is rampant in the superfood world and I don’t…

Constant Cravings

Just a friendly reminder that Chrissy’s new cookbook is out next week. Did I already buy one? Of course. Should you? Of course? Get ready for a bevvy of new Supermodel-icious cooking experiments. I assume, I’ll end looking just like her with a husband who adores me. Stay tuned.

Ina/Flo’s Bolognese- AKA Flolognese

I’m anxiously awaiting Hurricane Florence in Raleigh, NC, this week and while the forecast keeps changing, the contents of my freezer have not. A pound of ground beef, some canned tomatoes, what’s a girl to do but make Ina Garten’s Bolognese sauce? I came up with this solid life plan when I realize that my…

El Farallon

I’m just back from a long Labor Day weekend in Cabo, one of the most naturally beautiful places that I’ve yet to see. I just love that place. Wish I lived a little more centrally so that it could be my “Miami.” Ya’ know, that 2 hour flight to get away from it all for…

The Curtains are the Sea

Hi Guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was THE MOST productive ever. I did tons of work and projects around the house. I just had so much damn energy and it was wonderful. So, you’ve seen some similar shots before, but I just had to share my recently made over living room. I…

Funk Food: Peachy Keen Pancakes

If you’re a loyal devotee of funk food, you know that you can make pancakes with protein powder. They taste just like the real thing and are like, really healthy. (I’m sure). I finally ran out of my boring old, vanilla protein powder and recently purchased individual packets of cinnamon toast crunch protein powder. Oh…

Stockbridge

One of the dope features of my misplaced hotel was that it was central to an uncentral neighborhood, Stockbridge. It was seriously the cutest and the concierge pointed me to all the hot spots. And doors. so many cute doors. If you don’t like doors, just stop right now. Also, very creepy parks. And subterranean…

Radici

Radici in the Stockbridge neighborhood of Edinburgh was my favorite meal that I’ve had in the city since probably my schmancy, company dinner at Christmas. The concierge at my hotel recommended it as one of his favorite neighborhood gems. His wife is Italian so I had to take the recommendation for my last night on…

Tigerlily

Are you in Edinburgh and totally starving and haven’t eaten literally all day? (Because you can’t afford food in Copenhagen anymore and you had to have a mani (and champs) for lunch). I’m sure this happens all the time and is exactly why Tigerlily instituted their two course menu for 15 GBP. Yes, yes, yes….

Nira Caledonia

The summer in Scotland brings loads of tourists and super jacked up hotel room rates. AKA I couldn’t expense much more than some dull corporate chain, so I reached out to a travel agent to see what his recommendation would be. Try the Nira Caledonia, he said. The rooms would be small, but in budget,…

La Banchina

Sunday morning, a three mile walk in the sunshine to the acclaimed by every website, La Banchina. I was far too dressed for this hole-in-the-wall swimming hole, but enjoyed my time anyway. Let’s explore, shall we? Loved this sign. The peek-through to the canal from the land looked a little something like this. I’d wished…
