Gaby’s Pan-Roasted Eggplant with Pecorino

Made this for the real eggplant lover in my life, who of course, loved it. To me it was good, but not life changing. Eggplant is a mop for oil and this recipe, the eggplants just kept drinking and drinking it up. They were good, but definitely felt like something a heavy-handed Italian grandmother would…

Garlicky Twisted Gaby Guac

My favorite read of quarantine has been What’s Gaby Cooking’s newest cookbook, “Eat What you Want!” Again, makes me wonder why I am just starting my relationship with her and how I don’t own the others yet! As I’ve made my way through her book, I have been saving her guacamole recipe for Cinco de…

Super Model Project: Sweet Miso-Butter Cod and Snap Peas

What’s Gaby Cooking? Beef Larb

You know I’m ride or die with Chrissy Teigan’s recipes, but lately Gaby has been my girl. After making the chicken larb a couple times in a row, it was time for a shake-up with her beef larb recipe. While it was a nice change, hands down the best one so far has been the…

Sticky Chili Chicken

Well, instead of cooking up one big dish on Sunday afternoon noon, now I cook Saturday nights until one or two in the morning. I’m on week three of this odd cycle and it has become the highlight of my week. I crank up IG Live (again, so weird in itself) and find a DJ…
