Funk Food: Cauli Fried Rice

It’s been a minute since we’ve had a true Funk Food weekend around here. Lucky for you, I’m finally feeling funky again. This week I was all “down with carbs and up with kale.” And this stir fry. It’s so good that it’s easy to binge eat, just like your favorite takeout! Instead of your…

My Baby Bok Choys!

Baby BOK CHOY! (Sung to the tune of Sir Mixalot’s, “Baby Got Back”) I’m beginning to think that the better the recipe, the worse the accompanying photo. You’re so desperate to dig in and force feed your guests, that you barely have time to take a decent snap, let alone cover up a sauce drip…

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…

Funk Food: Waffles!

In between reliving some delicious food and drink from the recentĀ last-minute trip to the UK , I’m attempting to detox from booze (UGH) and eat low carb (UGH UGH). It has been absolutely freezing this week and the only hobby I want to have is pasta and wine. Last night, about every person I know…

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon. There, I said it. It’s basically a 0 on the ass whooping scale. On one hand you have God’s most perfect food, pretzel bread, and on the other belly flattening salmon. This has to even out to zero. Right? That’s what I’m telling myself and you should too. I took Ina…

Funk Food: Eggplant Pizza

The Funk Food of the weekend was Julia Child’s Eggplant Pizzas. They are ludicrously easy and just as delicious. I’m not sure how something so simple is so delicious, but that’s precisely when to not ask questions. Add toasted breadcrumbs to soak up any tears of confusion. Naked and afraid eggplants doing their thang. This…

Funk Food: Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles

My life is beginning to feel like a constant ebb and flow of travel and eating whatever I want and coming home and counting calories. It’s a little annoying as it seems like the last couple years if I just look at food the wrong way, the weight sticks around FOREVER. Anyone else feeling the…

Funk Food: Almost Take Out

It’s another funky Friday over here in the land of macarons and mayhem. Though, I must say things are looking more like this than any sort of trouble, which is just fine by me. Socializing and (a few too many) cocktails were out of the way early this week so tonight I’m just talking you…

Funk Food: Lavash Pizza

In the continued quest for funk food, aka fake junk food, I rediscovered my love of lavash. The thin, soft unleavened bread can be used as a wrap or toasted up as a pizza. This can be found near tortillas and other flattish thingsĀ in your grocery and the half off sign prompted me that pizza…

Funk Food: Very Veggie Quiche

While I wouldn’t normally qualify quiche as a funk food, that’s fake junk food for you new readers, this recipe is different. BECAUSE IT HAS A CRUST! A CRUST! Glorious carb-like, crunchy, satisfying crust. I have tried sweet potato everythang…but this never occurred to me to try. It Chef Jaime’s recipe, so without further ado…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Funk Food: Cauliflower Breadsticks

Ever continuing my quest for Funk Food – that’s faux junk food for those of you who can look at the stuff without gaining ten pounds – today, I test drove garlic cauliflower “bread sticks.” Let me just tell you these made my heart do a happy dance and that TWO of them equal ONE…
