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…

Super Model Project: Banana Bread

A week or so ago I bought 6 bananas because Chrissy Teigan told me to. When I occasionally buy bananas to eat, they seem to go brown immediately. When I needed them for a pre-new year’s baking challenge, they would NOT brown. For 10 days! So, I wasn’t intending to start off 2019 with a…

Super Model Project: Veggie Couscous & Spicy Pine Nuts

I rang in the new year at a house full of friends and the next day with a hangover from hell and several a Chrissy Teigan recipe. I had literally zero desire to cook (or get out of bed), but I had bought all the ingredients a few days prior and it was cook them…

Super Model Project: Soy Glazed Porkchops

Happy 2019, lovely readers! I have NO DOUBT this will be the greatest year yet. It has to be! I’m exhausted. šŸ™‚ I set things off on the right foot by cooking pork for new years with the intention of taking it’s good luck to heart. I don’t normally make pork…ever…but, I was pulling out…

Pecan Sandies

Merry Christmas! Hope that everyone had the loveliest of holiday. This month has been absolutely mad – in the best way- but I am wiped! I actually just hit the grocery today for the first time in the month of December, having been out-of-town and following it up with lots of holiday festivities. I didn’t…

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.Ā  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:Ā  Hungry for More. Why, you ask? 1. Her recipes are pretty fail-proof.Ā  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:Ā  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…
