A Not So Ribbiting Taste Test

Frog-Legs-Taste-Test

Giving people a leg up… Now that’s something I like to do when I can… Especially when friends of mine come to Los Angeles. After all, I don’t want them to mistakenly wind up in a Korean porno… Or on a billboard in Hollywood for STDs… Wearing a sparkling unicorn costume. On a billboard for The Squatty Potty… Now that’s A-OK though!  So when Arman… You know that cute little Aussie over at The Big Man’s World (he and I made a [Read On!]

Fishing For Healthier Fish & Chips

Healthy-Fish-Chips

When I was in the UK… I saw a lot of CHIPPIES. ON. EVERY. CORNER. And because I am SO NICE, and we were ON VACATION… I ALLOWED manfriend, wait… I guess I can now call him: FIANCE… To indulge… No. No. No. I did not let him indulge in THAT kind if CHIPPY… I mean… We weren’t in Amsterdam, after all. Instead, I let him get RANDY with… You know… England’s quintessential cuisine. Fish & Chips. However… Now that I think about it… Would [Read On!]

Brownie-Protein-Bars-No-Bake

Maybe you know me as the delicious recipe creator, pumpkin-loving, graduate school girl who’s on her way to be a registered dietitian over here in the blog atmosphere… Or the girl that challenges bouncers to push up contests… More probable though, you remember me as THIS girl who made an appearance in Gigi’s Top 10 Fit Foods post and video… Or our video of taste testing Whole Foods Frozen Meals that ended in this… But honestly, the most likely situation [Read On!]

Getting Rid Of Leftovers Is Cake!

Leftovers-Pancakes

If you’re currently playing TETRIS with the leftovers you’ve acquired from your holiday feasts… Only to LOSE THE GAME… When you realize a few minutes later that the refrigerator door has popped open… Much like the button on your pants after you eat one too many servings of that marshmallow rubbed turkey, sweet potato and pomegranate casserole…. Then you’re going to most likely come knocking on my door and kiss my feet when I reveal my latest recipe to you. If [Read On!]

Star Wars, The Cookie Force Is Strong

Star-Wars-Force-Awakens-Cookie-Wars

In two stomachs… Not too far away… Cookies. Lots of [GiGi-Diet Approved] cookies [all thanks to Andrea’s Protein Cakery**]. These stomachs… Both on the brink of Thanksgiving-feast fullness… Must continue to digest the copious amounts of sweet biscuits their masters create… For they are in an epic “COOKIE WAR“ to see who can create the most decoratively and delectable ingenious treat. During said battle… Leia On These Cookies (apparently my INTIMIDATING battle name) and Emperor Bad Chef (my friend Armen) try to steal each other’s secret cookie decorating [Read On!]

WTF DO YOU WANT?!

GiGi-Eats-Holiday-Gift-Guide

But seriously… What the fuck heck is on your holiday gift list. There is probably nothing worse than having NOT EVEN ONE TINY LITTLE IOTA OF AN IDEA as to what to get your significant other, family member or even just your friend (yes, this is even worse than having explosive diarrhea for 10 straight days…)… As a gift. I mean… After all, these are the people you’re suppose to know more than anyone else… Right? Well shit. If they’re CLAIMING they [Read On!]

Supplying Power On The Set Of A Movie

my-power-supply-ham-sandwich

3 slices nitrate-laced, sugar-cured honey baked ham 1 slice of chemically constructed pepper jack cheese 1 leaf from a head of watery iceberg lettuce All smothered with creamy yellow mustard And sandwiched between two slices of processed white death flour bread This is most certainly NOT the latest healthy recipe I am sharing with you here on GiGi Eats Celebrities… This is actually the contents of what makes up the 1/2 eaten, health-robbing sandwich sitting on the center island of [Read On!]

T-Rex Take Out, A Thanksgiving Appetizer

Paleo-Scotch-Eggs

Hey YOU over there… Yep, I am talking to you… With that frozen 20 pounds turkey carcass wedged under your arm… That five-pound bag of yams slung over your shoulder… And those stalks of Brussels sprouts sticking out of your grocery bag like samurai swords… I just wanted to let you know that it looks like you may have sat on one of your bags filled with cranberries because your butt is a slightly purplish red hue. Well now that you have [Read On!]

The Unicorn of Pumpkin Pies

white-pumpkin-pumpkin-pie-unicorn-pie

Recipe evolution is much like the game “Telephone”… Who else is now humming Lady Gaga’s song… SORRY! That recipe your mother or father passed down to you; may not be anything close to what the original recipe was. Great Grandma Gladice’s stick to your ribs stuffing very well may have included ham hocks way back when she was introduced to it, but her recipe you now make for your friends and family contains chicken feet instead. The same can be [Read On!]

Lets Taco Bout BumbleBee Seafoods

Bumble-Bee-Seafood-Seared-Ahi-Tuna-GiGi-Eats

There are innumerable annoyances in the world… As I know you’re aware… Such as… Not being able to scratch an inextinguishable itch WHEN. YOU. NEED. TO. YOU’RE ABOUT TO “BLOW” yet… There is NO lavatory… Or even a bush to squat behind… In sight! Boarding your flight, thinking it’s on time (woo woo!)… Only to wait in the plane with broken air conditioning… Next to a rather plump seat mate who’s eating Taco Bell… For two hours and thirty-two minutes… And [Read On!]
