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,…

Super Model Project: It’s Not Gardetto’s

I remember when my brother and I were wee little children we used to find it hilarious to call those overly salty, overly brown bags, rye, bagel-chippy bags of Gardetto’s, “Gardetto’s Snack Crap.” That’s precisely what it was. Chrissy Teigan had the opposite reaction. She would NEVER call the Gardetto’s “snack crap.” The salt bombs…

Super Model Project: Creamy Parmesan Skillet Eggs

I hate to say, “finally, I made it back from Charleston,” but finally, I made it back from Charleston. That city is so charming and full of so many insane food options, that you just can’t help but to indulge. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of healthy, low carb eating, that…

Super Model Project: Pan-Seared Scallops

Chrissy Teigan dragged this recipe off straight off of a Sports Illustrated  photo shoot. She told me herself. Spearfishing for scallops in designer swimwear is tough, but it sure does burn calories – which comes in real handy as this recipe features both butter AND oil. Lucky arteries. Actually, it was really delicious and stupidly…

Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice

It’s that moment, that recipe you’ve all been waiting for…the one that is going to put your ass on the cover of SI’s swimsuit issue. I present to you, Ms. Teigan’s Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice. This recipe has wowed even the haterest of coconut haters. Stir fries have come near and far for the perfect balance of…

Cooking My Way Onto the Catwalk

Great news, ya’ll! Chef Jaime drank the super model Kool-Aid (which tastes a lot like vino)!! She’s on board with cheesy, carb-laden dishes, just like they teach you in super model school. Thank goodness – it was getting lonely over here, just me and Chrissy in the kitchen every weekend. Here’s the first leg of Chef…

The Super Model Project:  French Toast Casserole

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for so long that this past weekend I strong armed a bunch of friends who like to cook into having a potluck brunch. We were all iced/snowed in and what else did we have to do anyway? Finally. My casserole. After calling around to local markets during Snowmageden…

The Super Model Projet: Pot Pie Soup

After the awful Margarita chicken experience, I am happy to report that Chrissy Teigan more than redeemed herself with her Pot Pie Soup with Crust Crackers. I am SO glad to know that this is how super models get their bodies, because I could eat this every single day and be very satisfied. Recipe at…

The Super Model Project: Margarita Chicken

Moving forward with my Super Model project this snowy weekend, I tried not one but FOUR recipes from Cravings . Two were outstanding, as most are, and two I will not be making again. Let’s start with the bad news first. While Teigan’s recipes are generally super flavorful, many I’ve tried seem to take a…

Super Model Project:  Sweet Potato Gnocchi

While most of the time a Ms. Teigan can do no wrong…this sweet potato gnocchi did. I’m not sure it’s totally CT’s fault, I just don’t eat much gnocchi. So, I’m not sure what the texture should be, how big it should be, etc. etc. (That’s what she said). Why eat gnocchi when you could…

Super Model Project: Legendary Steak

John Legend serenaded my steak at lunch and it was everything I thought it could be. Serenade your steaks for up to 24 hours if you can. Here’s what John Legend says to throw in a bowl, more or less, modified for mayhem. 1/2 c. soy sauce 1/2 c. olive oil Zest of one lemon…
