Super Model Project: Eggy Mozzarella Ham Cups

Honestly, this weekend was kind of shitty. One of the saving graces was the C.Tiegan new cookbook, ‘Cravings:  Hungry for More.’ While I’m dying to dive into some red curry or any of her coconut-centric recipes, I opted for some less rice-heavy items that could be prepped on Sunday for the week. First up, her…

Icelandic Berry Batter (Recipe. Non-sexual).

Ya’ll, a double pint of blueberries on sale at Target right now for $3.49. You HAVE to make this. It’s too cheap not to. This round, I made the regular babe for friends and office and a mini gluten-free version that is so experimental, some might ban it from their berry patch. (Icelandic yogurt was…

Funk Food: NC Bagel Deli

Well, this was supposed to be my healthy week. I bought all this fresh veg and NO CARBS and as soon as I’d spent a fortune on feeding my body what it should be consuming, I managed to come down with the flu. What do you want when you have the flu? Not a bunch…

Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

Fresh Carbs and Post Updates

Thought I'd give you all an update on my situation with the Unscripted Hotel in Durham. I received the nicest email from the hotel manager. He apologised profusely, offered a refund of the stay, and a complimentary next stay. So generous! I look forward to trying to property again and updating my review. He even…

Stuff I Ate in Durham

Durham’s charming nickname of the Dirty D doesn’t scream food scene. But it is a pretty good one. My gal pal and I ate every meal out in the downtown for two days. Here were the highlights. Friday Night’s Stop:  Pizzeria Toro. Buratta (shocking) and grilled peaches with pine nuts and crispy basil. Ricotta dumplings…

Super Model Project: Creamy Parmesan Skillet Eggs

I hate to say, “finally, I made it back from Charleston,” but finally, I made it back from Charleston. That city is so charming and full of so many insane food options, that you just can’t help but to indulge. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of healthy, low carb eating, that…

Magnolia’s

Not sure if you’re excited or disappointed, but we’ve hit our final stop on our Charleston food tour. I’m just beginning to figure it how four pounds are gained in three days, despite gratuitous walking. So. Brunch at Magnolia’s. I’ve been here before and this visit did not disappoint just as the last. But, first,…

Sweet Potato Hash

I realize I’m late to the scene on this, but I’m happy to report the ultimate life hack lives up to its name. That’s right, hash browns in the waffle iron. Pros: Insta-hashbrowns. No added oil for frying. Worried about shredded potato sticking, but it was no problemo at all. Cons: Where has this been…

The Super Model Project:  French Toast Casserole

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for so long that this past weekend I strong armed a bunch of friends who like to cook into having a potluck brunch. We were all iced/snowed in and what else did we have to do anyway? Finally. My casserole. After calling around to local markets during Snowmageden…

Mayhem Breakfast Pizza

The best Sundays in the world are grabbing a coffee and the NY Times, throwing on some jazz, and cooking a savory breakfast while the person who gives you butterflies curls up on the couch to start their day and trade fantasy football players. Brunch should be served with champagne and then you are going…

ISwearThey’reDelicious- Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Thanksgiving is over! No more carbs with a side of potatoes, with another kind of carb on the side. Nope. Time to kick the habit. I found this amazing recipe for cottage cheese pancakes that are gluten-free to boot. Even if you don’t like cottage cheese, I promise you don’t taste it at all. They…
