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…

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…

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…

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…

Tipple THIS. Ina Did.

Looking for a drink that’s so multipurpose that it could have you… texting an ex (if you needed an excuse), getting arrested for public indecency, planning dope adventures, spending too much money, DJing at a strange party, and rewatching SATC a decade too late….All at the same damn time? Does it also need to be…

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…

Nutella Bark

What’s the world’s most perfect food? Nutella, of course! That’s why when I needed a truly quick (like 20 minutes) quick treat to bake for a recent birthday, I turned to this super simple recipe. It’s the quality ingredients that make it, so it can be a tad pricey to throw together, but perfect when…

Nutella Crack

This is a Momofuku Milk Bar recipe (purportedly) that is (purportedly) more addictive than crack. I whipped up dinner for my neighbor last weekend and we had this for dessert. He took the leftovers home in (his) dirty Tupperware that had previously housed egg rolls. He claims that this recipe was so good it didn’t…

Super Model Project: Sweet Chili & Mustard-Glazed Salmon

I’m over here just trying to hone my seafood skills…it’s always so easy to just order out in restaurants, but I hate to make it at home. Don’t ask me why. If you’re a bit seafood adverse in your home kitchen, like me, this is just the recipe for you. Chrissy Teigan claims she’s a little…

Super Model Project: Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Vacation is in T-31 days as of today! I hope you’ve been enjoying my healthy-ish countdown on IG story. Everyone knows the next step in vacation prep after excercise and mass veggie consumption is consuming bread at the same rate of Chrissy Teigan. However, in an effort not to consume bread or in Chrissy’s case,…

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…
