Funk Food: Crab Fried “Rice”

This is one of those recipes that you know must be wonderful because my photos are so.damn.bad. I’m not much for cauliflower rice – it’s clearly not the carb it masquerades to be and it makes my stomach hurt? No thanks. I’ll just eat a salad. After reviewing my favorite Brewery Bhavana’s menu for their…

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…

First Place Recipe of Quarantine: Gaby’s- Chicken Larb Bowls

Chicken Larb Bowls was my first recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking. The recipe were absolutely delicious and very easy to make. I served my larb over Chrissy Teigan’s coconut rice on day one and ate it over salad greens the rest of the week. It was so good, in fact, that I’ll be making it…

Super Model Project: Red Curry Chicken

Chrissy, girl. Friend I’ve never met, spirit animal, sister from another mister, and kitchen diva… I love you. I love your recipes… I LIKED this one. It was tasty, it was easy, it tasted like a comforting piece of home. BUT IT WASN’T SPICY ENOUGH. Not even close. I realize you wrote Cravings 2 when…

Ina’s Pork Tenderloin

I made a nice pre-second-to-last-GoT episode dinner on Sunday basically because I needed an occasion to cook Ina Garten’s pork tenderloin recipe. (Oh, and a get-rid-of-all-the-veggies (and bacon) sweet potato hash). Nom. So, Ina suggest serenading (marinating) the tenderloins for 3-24 hours. I’m an overachiever and opted for 32 hours and it was just delightful….

Funk Food: Take Out Level Stir Fry at Home

The other night, after a really long work day, I decided to cook for company at the last minute. I figured a stir fry would be easy and fairly quick so I just bought all the seemingly relevant items and went to town. I promised myself I’d give it a quick Goog and just commit…

Zucchini Carbonara

Sometimes you come home from a couple weeks of travel and eat a pizza and sometimes you make Paleo recipes like this Zucchini Carbonara. I was very skeptical of this, but my love of all foods Italian and my need for my pants to fit are at a constant battle, so it seemed worth a…

Green Eggs and Ham – aka the recipe for Arugula Pesto

Just in time for St. Pat’s, or Dr. Seuss Week…I understand that is a thing…? Here is a very festive way to clean out your fridge – a green eggs and ham egg bake. First, you’re going to take that bag of arugula that you bought a week ago and didn’t really touch and turn…

Funk Food: Sweet Potato Muffins

After my weekend of experiments with mashed sweet potatoes, I didn’t know what to do with all of the leftovers…and there were quite a few! I came across this recipe on Pinterest for “muffins” made of mashed sweet potato. They looked lovely, but after they came out of the oven, I wasn’t totally bowled over…

Ina’s Tri-Colore Salad

I’m grossly uncool when it comes to Valentine’s Day…I LOVE IT. It’s just a nice excuse to plan an elaborate meal for no real reason and make others, or even just yourself happy. A few girlfriends tried to talk me into a weekend away, but I stuck to my tradition and whipped up a nice…

Funk Food: Whole 30 Zuppa Toscana

Anyone else flipping freezing right now? And maybe you’re trying to eat fairly healthy because it’s still January? And all your friends are doing dry January or Whole 30 and the least you can do is Google a Whole 30 recipe? Me too. I’ve got one for you. Comfort food that hangs out with the…
