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…

Icelandic Berry Batter (Recipe. Non-sexual).

Ya’ll, a double pint of blueberries on sale at Target right now for $3.49. You HAVE to make this. It’s too cheap not to. This round, I made the regular babe for friends and office and a mini gluten-free version that is so experimental, some might ban it from their berry patch. (Icelandic yogurt was…

Jump for (Almond) Joy!

That’s right, jump when I say jump. How high? At least as tall as this caloric explosion of no-bake goodness. That’s right NO BAKE. It’s hot and humid so you aren’t going to turn on your oven. You just aren’t. This little gem is an Almond Joy pie/cake hybrid and it looks way harder to…

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…
