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…

Don’t Chou Fleur This Salad?!

Choufleur, one of my favorite French words. It’s so fun to say, that it makes you want to eat it. So I did. I bought an abundance of ingredients for a week’s worth of this gorgeous salad before the flu struck on Monday. I made one serving and the rest is still hanging out in…

Give Your Valentine (Cordon) Bleu Balls

I have a confession:  I love Valentine’s Day. I detest heart-shaped things- jewelry, desserts, home goods- but I adore this holiday. Yes, it’s totally cheesy and a little embarrassing to admit, but it’s true. Relationship or naw, it’s an excuse to pamper someone you love (that someone can totally be yourself), pop some quality vino,…

Funk Food: Waffles!

In between reliving some delicious food and drink from the recent 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…

But(ternut) this Salad, Though

A couple of weeks ago, I awoke for the strongest craving for butternut squash. The need for that Carmelized savoury goodness just could be stopped. The weird thing was I had never tasted butternut squash before…so why was I craving it? I imagine this is what being pregnant must be like. Naturally, I listened to…

Stir Fry this into Rotation

In an effort to cook with sambal as much as possible before heading to Indonesia (hopefully) very soon, I stir fried a massive vat of veggies and chicken for the week. My current stir fry obsession was a peanut sauce based s’fry. Today, we leave that all behind in search of more heat. This recipe…

What Came First? The Eggplant or the Emoji? 🍆

This weekend I hosted company who freakin’ loves some eggplant – the food not the emoji. So, I found the most wonderful looking recipe I could find and readied myself to making a delicious main dish for Saturday night dinner. Naturally, I leaned on Ina Garten’s Eggplant Gratin. Now Ina’s recipes are so foolproof that…

Pretty Ish

Hey alls. So, I’ve been on a sort of natural beauty kick lately, trying to buy better beauty products where I can. This is an expensive quest of trial and error. Do not try this at home. Let me repeat, do not try this at home. My skin has also been like, “bish, stop changing…

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…

Ex Anniversaries and Steak Salad Nicoise

Last week would have been my twelfth wedding anniversary and I never really know what to do with that day any more. I look forward to the next great relationship so that I don’t feel the need to mark it any longer, but for now, we persist. The last few years I’ve spent it as…
