Munching The Med: Part Two (Katakolon, Corfu, Cooking & The Slots)

munching the med part 2

My apologies for leaving you stranded in the middle of the Ionian Sea. Honestly, though… I am not sure I am actually sorry… Because some of my favorite experiences happened out there. But here I am, to rescue you, so hop on this life preserver boat (I know, my nautical terminology is SPOT ON…), and I will take you first to… Katakolon & Olympia… So we can explore where dudes used to run around ass naked competing with one another (I.E. Where [Read On!]

Munching The Med: Part One (from Athens to Santorini)

Munching The Med, Part One

Do you remember what it was like to take your first EVER bite from an EXTRA LARGE cup of Dippin’ Dots? For me, that experience (when I was, maybe 6?) was insanely mind-blowing, as I felt as though I blasted off into an alternate universe where only delicious mouth parties exist… Well, my experience of getting the BEST brain freeze of my life, thanks to shoveling in Mint Chocolate Chip Dippin’ Dots way too quickly, pretty much mirrors my experience aboard [Read On!]

lake-tahoe-food-wine-festival-gigi-tara-vianessa

I am going to have to ask you to BUCKLE UP… Because we are about to go on a little (and when I say little, I actually mean BIG)… ROAD TRIP! Ready? OK! Lets TALLY-HO! Oh wait, no… We are NOT about to go on a fox hunt… And we are definitely NOT bringing any dogs with us. However, the reason for my mentioning that phrase is because it’s definition to me is… “Let’s get going”… And it’s quite suiting for where exactly [Read On!]

Chicken Smoothie: Don’t Be A Chicken, TRY IT!

chicken smoothie

I’d be lying if I told all of you that… I AM SMOOTH LIKE BUTTA in social situations… Or just in general. And we all know that I would NEVER lie to any of you (in fact, I am a little TOO blunt at times)… So truthfully, I am about as smooth as the surface of the moon… When it comes to… Um, yeah, dealing with this thing called life. People who have met me, seen my YouTube videos, follow [Read On!]

I’m Ripping Off The Band-Aid And Asking

Best Home Cook GiGi Dubois

Look at you riding in on your SPARKLING regal white thoroughbred stallion… Oh wait… Is that just an obnoxiously stubborn braying gray mule? Well, whatever. I appreciate you trying to channel your inner Old Spice Guy to come help me! That being said… I have to confess… I am the type of person who hates asking for help. HATES IT. If I were hanging off the edge of a 500-foot glacier… Fingers slipping because I am known for being quite the “butterfingers” (which [Read On!]

It’s Time For A Do Over

Paleo Buffalo Wings Legs

I am 10,000% POSITIVE that ALL OF YOU have wished at one point or another that you could “DO OVER” at least one crappy instance/decision/event in your life… For instance… Do any of these situations ring a bell: “Why the heck did I think it would be a GOOD idea to agree to watch my neighbor’s four-year-old sextuplets while she’s on a week-long cruise through the Mediterranean… The day after I get my infected MUST COME OUT NOW wisdom teeth [Read On!]

Reeling In The Truth: Can You Poach Fish In The Dishwasher?

FOOD Myth vs. Reality

Sureeeee… You may be OBSESSED with your spiralizer, your crockpot or even just your trusty toaster oven… But hopefully, most of you have come to the realization that THE DISHWASHER is hands down the greatest kitchen gadget to ever take up space in your kitchen. Sorry ice cream maker… Feel free to go sulk in the pantry. But common, you know, without this Sanitation Enchantress, you might not live to see the pile of dishes that rivals the height of K2, [Read On!]

HOT DOG! These Are Good!

FishDogs-PoultryDogs

The dog days of SUMMER… Woof. It’s a universal truth that… SUMMER… SOOOOOO hot right now. I bet those Jenner girls along with their ridiculously “caked” minions are all TOTES JELLY of SUMMER… Because she is just naturally hot. I wonder if these “asselfie”-taking obsessed ladies would be jealous of me around this time of year too because when the heat from the sweltering sun gets to me, I tend to turn into a pissed-off double-humped camel… And you know, camels [Read On!]

Teenage Mutant Mint Chip Ice Cream

Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Ice_Cream

Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael would most certainly be exorbitantly flabbergasted by the absolute inventive brilliance I am about to reveal to you. That’s because the creation is engineered and sculpted to the highest degree of perfection. I have a SLIGHT feeling Leonardo would have said: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication… If he had the chance to gaze upon the masterpiece. And Donatello might have actually wanted to hire me (or Vianessa, who helped me in the kitchen this week) as one of [Read On!]

Superheroes Making Salads In The Kitchen

SuperheroSuperfoodSalads

If duck-billed platypi could talk… They’d probably tell you that I am a Shetland pony-sized azure-colored sparkling mystical unicorn who comes up with the most repulsive sounding and looking recipes that actually taste quite scrumptious… Cause they’ve tried my concoctions before?   Does anyone know if Food Network is casting for a new show called: WORLD’S UGLIEST RECIPE MAKER… Because IF THEY ARE, someone alert me! HOT DAMN, I need to audition. That being said, the latest repulsive-looking recipes my stunning [Read On!]

Marvel Over These Superhero Superfoods

Captain-America-Civil-War-GiGi-Eats-Celebrities

I may have cork-screwed myself off many big air jumps, popped off of half-pipe lips and thrown myself down cliff drops in the past… I may have even tamed bucking broncos back in the day… And currently… I may even be in a constant barbarous battle between my forever arch nemesis… But even though my past and present pursuits sound straight out of a Marvel Comic… They actually don’t even come THE TINIEST BIT CLOSE to say… Captain America having to live in [Read On!]
