Super Model Project: Tangy Slaw

Ugh, you guys, I am still pawing through the new Chrissy Tiegan cookbook for non-rice, meaty, cheesy, crunchy bits in favor of….salad. That’s right, my second recipe from the newest Super Model bible was Chrissy’s Tangy (Herby) Slaw. I was kind of OK with it, since her Asian chicken salad was one of my go-to’s…

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…

ROYGBIV Salad

After a weekend of hurricane carboloading ( you know, for strength?) it was time to get back to veggies n’ thangs. I whipped up a big batch of a Thai inspired salad that was supposed to have a couple cups of quinoa mixed into it, but I can behave….sometimes. So all veg it is! Can…

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…

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…

El Cartel

The next night, I headed out to dinner, super early in pursuit of tacos. Again. El Cartel, I will eat your tacos come hell or high water. This time, it worked. I just had to wait maybe twenty minutes at the sister restaurant across the street because there is no waiting space in El Cartel….

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…
