Super Model Project: Three Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Tick all that apply: You are craving chocolate. You are a novice chef/baker. You need a nice end to a possibly over indulgent/romantic dinner. You need to look like Chrissy Teigan GREAT NEWS. This Teigan recipe from Cravings 2 hits all of these pressing issues. A super simple dessert made with stuff you probably already…

Super Model Project: Short Rib Curry

Happy Thanksgiving, lovely readers! Sick of turkey and potatoes? Need something different from those bland, fall flavors of weeks past? Thai Short Ribs aren’t pretty, but they are a welcome change to words like butternut and potato.  If you have some time this weekend – which you should, it’s a long one. Slow cook these…

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:  Hungry for More. Why, you ask? 1. Her recipes are pretty fail-proof.  2. To look like a supermodel at the end of this. 3. Maybe some relationship…

From Maine to Hawaii Chicken Burgers

Oh haiiii. I’m back from Maine and have gone from hipster food blowout sesh to what if we just gave Whole 30 a try? At least during the week…. So, in an effort for my pants to stop hurting, the first recipe I tried was so tasty that I ended up making it for lunch…

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…

Caramelized Zucchini Pizza

This “sayonara summer” recipe was so delicious, that I ended it up making it twice in one week. The first time was on a Saturday night, feeding some slightly intoxicated friends. I informed them that this was not drunk food, but they persisted and claimed it the best pizza ever. The next morning, upon eating…

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…

Constant Cravings

Just a friendly reminder that Chrissy’s new cookbook is out next week. Did I already buy one? Of course. Should you? Of course? Get ready for a bevvy of new Supermodel-icious cooking experiments. I assume, I’ll end looking just like her with a husband who adores me. Stay tuned.

Ina/Flo’s Bolognese- AKA Flolognese

I’m anxiously awaiting Hurricane Florence in Raleigh, NC, this week and while the forecast keeps changing, the contents of my freezer have not. A pound of ground beef, some canned tomatoes, what’s a girl to do but make Ina Garten’s Bolognese sauce? I came up with this solid life plan when I realize that my…

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…
