Guess The Food, Taiwan Edition!

Whole Squid Roasted

I got in a UFC-like fight with China Airlines… And China Airlines won. But really… I feel like I got hit by a plane… Or like I got thrown out of a plane without a parachute, landing head first into an over-sized, ripe cactus-tree. Or… Stuck in the airplane bathroom after someone spent far too long in there, after their in-flight meal… And speaking of meals… I have a little “mealy” game for you… I will call it: GUESS THE [Read On!]

Charged Up For Another Year!

Birthday cake coconut ice cream

I like to consider myself a very giving person… However… Don’t mistaken GIVING for SHARING… Because a sharer… I am not. Especially… When it comes to… SALMON SKIN HANDROLLS!! Or really, any food on MY plate for that matter. Now if I give YOU food, by all means, shove your head right into it… Forks and knives? Those are for wimps! But again… Don’t you even THINK about diving head-first into my plate (or even look at me like you want to try [Read On!]

GMOs: They Might Be For Dinner

New-Born-Baby-Wrapped-Up

Remember how roughly two weeks ago… I wrote a blog post on genetically modified foods (GMOs)? No doubt there are GMOs in this Chick-Fil-A Burger! Well… Today I want to continue my rant but this time not as much from my perspective… But from my sister’s point of view. You see… She just popped her first child out (ouch!) and as a new mother, she wants the absolute best for her baby. Check out this little burrito! One of the things my sister wants [Read On!]

You Won’t Be Waffling Over This!

The-Honest-Bison-Meat-Waffle

We tend to waffle over a lot of things… Such as: Whether or not we… Relate more to Batman, Superman or Spiderman Want the soup or salad with the lunch combo at the deli down the street… Screw it, you’re probably going for the French Fries… Should chance driving another hour even though the fuel gauge of your car says “I AM STARVING FOR GAS!” Or even… Need the vintage Led Zeppelin T-Shirt that’s being sold on eBay for $10,000. Trust [Read On!]

A Tasty Recipe For Disaster!

Vegan-Artichoke-Celery-Root-Puree made by Leslie Durso

I should really get a tattoo on my forehead that saying WARNING: Ticking Time Bomb… I will detonate if even just an iota of a food I am allergic or intolerant to seeps into my intricate system. It’s hard for some people to swallow the amount of intolerances I have… And after giving the laundry list to those who ask… I often need a nap because it’s exhausting. However, I woke from my quick doze-off when Leslie Durso arrived at my doorstep, [Read On!]

Whoopee! It’s an “Oreo”!

Oreo cookie - homemade and sugar free

A majority of college experiences include pulling… 1. The Matthew Mcconaughey – The act of experimenting with certain drugs… Resulting in stripping down naked, dancing around wildly while playing bongos only to shove a cop who came to the scene, after a noise complaint was filed… Consequently earning “silver cuffs”. 2. The David Hasselhoff – The act of imbibing far too much… Resulting in an epic video made of you making love to a gluttonous cheeseburger on the floor of your [Read On!]

This Chick Gets A Makeover: Chick-Fil-A

Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich Deluxe made healthy

Who here craves… Monosodium glutamate mixed with some moist tapioca dextrin and succulent dimethylpolysiloxane… Piled high with… TBHQ, ammonium sulfate, liquid yeast, palm kernel oil, cheese culture, oleoresin and caramel color… Oh and lettuce, yes, lettuce too… But of course. Um. Didn’t your grade-school chemistry professor tell you to NOT ingest any chemicals? Then why in DA FAK are so many FOAMING at the mouth for the juicy poison I described above? Think about this…. Wanting to nosh on that [Read On!]

Recipe Fail? You Be The Judge!

Dafoc muffins - foccacia fail

HONESTY…. Yep, that’s a rarity here in Hollywood… So just call me a purple polka-dotted sky-diving unicorn because… I will ALWAYS tell you the truth. I’ll tell you that… A. When I first moved to Los Angeles… I did something that could be seen as completely stereotypical and if dug up from the depths, I would take FULL responsibility for it. B. I am FULLY capable of eating two WHOLE chickens and 10 pounds of salmon in ONE sitting. C. Some days, [Read On!]
