Supermodel Project: Braised Short Ribs

I was a little nervous for the Valentine’s Day main event, Chrissy Teigan’s Braised Short Ribs, because I’d never made them before. It was a leap of faith down the supermodel cooking runway. Ms. Teigan suggests serving said ribs over a sweet potato mash that is flavored with maple syrup. While I may like Valentine’s…

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. ­čÖé 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…

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.┬á 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:┬á Hungry for More. Why, you ask? 1. Her recipes are pretty fail-proof.┬á 2. To look like a supermodel at the end of this. 3. Maybe some relationship…

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:┬á 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…

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.

Super Model Project: Sweet Chili & Mustard-Glazed Salmon

I’m over here just trying to hone┬ámy 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: 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…
