Key Lime Fine

This might be the strangest summer on record. Unless it was on a holiday weekend, I didn’t hit a single moment at any pool. There were no key lime pies. There were no melony, buratta-y, fresh tomato-y salads. I don’t have an inkling of what the song of the summer is. And bathing suit body?…

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.  If you have some time this weekend – which you should, it’s a long one. Slow cook these…

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.

Friday Pick Me-Up

Not sure which is better? The esteemed Macarons and Mayhem recipe collection has it’s own Pinterest board. Now you can peruse the kitchen mayhem in between DIY gardening projects and shopping for engagement rings. Follow the collection, here. Next up, there’s this fantastic hybrid of Aziz Ansari and a Kanye West video. You’re welcome.   …

Dessert Verdict: Not Guilty!

Deep into my health kick, I’ve found the most wonderfully simple dessert recipe… and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Finally, a dessert with the caloric verdict:  Not Guilty! This seriously takes five minutes to make and seems and tastes super impressive. Berry Frozen Yogurt 4 c. frozen berries (I have tried all strawberries, but…

French Me

Remember that time I had a blog… I just did too! Hi, guys! It’s been a crazy month! Moving in with the chap and the beast, traveling to the MIA, dealing with office renovations, and of course Bastille Day! That’s right, Bastille Day is a favourite holiday, but let’s face it, all holidays are favourite…

Slutty Brownies

The problem with sluts is that they’re cheap and easy. They’re by nature also full of lots of things…. Just like these brownies! I’m not one for packaged baked goods since I love to bake, but I ran into this little problem travelling back from Miami this weekend. Since we missed our flight and were…

Eggs > Toads

Not sure why the toad of toad in the hole is called a toad so I’ll call my new dish what it is…egg in a pit. It’s not eloquent, but it’s not a lie like that lying toad in his fabricated hole. Come to think of it, do toads even hang out in holes? Maybe…

This Little Piggy…

Not long ago, the Chap fixed me the most incredible welcome-home-from-your-family shenanigans dinner. While I love to cook, the best part about this particular meal was the not cooking. Well, the best part after eating it anyways. A long weekend of family is always…long…but I got to hang out with the he nephew who decided…

Lady and the Tramp

Lady (Moi). And the Tramp (The Beast). And also the Chap… were all itching for a carb fix we’d better make some tagliatelle from scratch. So we followed Marc Vetri’s recipe. I found this true gem in the email foodie newsletter, Tasting Table. I highly recommend both the recipe and subscribing to that newsletter if you…

Put the Tart Before the Course

Put the tart before the course. I highly recommend it. That way dessert is ready to go even before the dishes are done and not to mention tart components always need time to meld together, flavours serenading each other in the dark mystery that lies behind closed refrigerator doors. Recently I spent a morning of…

Standing (Ovation) Rib Roast

The chap’s recent dinner party coupled with the insane stretch of time on my hands in between gigs has me inspired to do about not much else other than cook and bake. The original plan was to get super in shape with my three weeks off or convince my friends or chap that taking a…
