Funk Food: Take Out Level Stir Fry at Home

The other night, after a really long work day, I decided to cook for company at the last minute. I figured a stir fry would be easy and fairly quick so I just bought all the seemingly relevant items and went to town. I promised myself I’d give it a quick Goog and just commit…

Ina’s Tri-Colore Salad

I’m grossly uncool when it comes to Valentine’s Day…I LOVE IT. It’s just a nice excuse to plan an elaborate meal for no real reason and make others, or even just yourself happy. A few girlfriends tried to talk me into a weekend away, but I stuck to my tradition and whipped up a nice…

Thai Meatball Soup (Whole 30)

While I’m not joining the bevvy of friends Whole 30-ing or Dry-January-ing because of things like banana bread experiments, I am trying to make little changes. I’ve also been jonse-ing to make some soup, because winter. It won’t drop below say 55 degrees here, so it doesn’t feel quite right, but a light soup would…

Super Model Project: Veggie Couscous & Spicy Pine Nuts

Supermodel Project: Kung Pao Broccoli

A few weekends ago, I was planning a grand meal for company and decided that all the recipes had to come out of Chrissy Tiegan’s newest cookbook, Cravings:Ā  Hungry for More. Why, you ask? 1. Her recipes are pretty fail-proof.Ā  2. To look like a supermodel at the end of this. 3. Maybe some relationship…

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…

Give Your Valentine (Cordon) Bleu Balls

I have a confession:Ā  I love Valentine’s Day. I detest heart-shaped things- jewelry, desserts, home goods- but I adore this holiday.
