This ICE Is Nuts

COCONUT LIME POPSICLES

A lot of people think I am kind of nuts. My rebuttal to this claim is typically: If the saying, you are what you eat, holds true… Then I am 100% NOT nuts… Because I cannot eat them!  However… Some might consider coconut to be a nut (NEWSFLASH: it’s a fruit), and as you all may very well know at this point, coconut byproducts are my go-to staples for pretty much all of my recipes (although I have yet to make [Read On!]

Not Zipping My Lips Over This!

Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Sugar, Nut, Fruit- Free

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ZiplocBackToSchool #CollectiveBias    I am not one to zip and lock my lips… Ever. In other words, I “suffer” from what you might call, “word vomit,” much to my mother’s chagrin. I could blame genetics… But I mean, I won’t? So when there are thoughts/ideas swimming through my mind, my mouth fires them out like cannon balls. Anyone cannon ball into a pool yet this summer? [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!]

Rethinking That Wiener

Pigs In A Blanket Revamped

I feel EXTREMELY bad for cocktail weenies. They REEAALLLLYYY lost in the name department. Imagine if you met someone named Cocktail Weenie… The first thing you would think (or at least I would)… I wonder how many ‘EAT ME‘ signs were stuck on his back in grade school? And I wonder if people STILL do it…” Mmmm… Smoky, fatty, crusty cocktail weenies, with a little ketchup, but of course. Sure, the name is rather unfortunate, and sort of reminds me [Read On!]

Chinese Take Out, Made In

Chinese Take-Out, Made In

When your friends flake on plans like dandruff. When your Tinder date ghosts you even before you meet for the first time at that seedy bar. When your boss’s bitchy minion sucks as being a human being. When your husband plans poker night with the boys on your anniversary (THANK GOODNESS you can return that uncomfortably promiscuous strappy body suit, am I right?). When your wife still goes for pedicures and manicures with the girls even though you gifted her with [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!]

A-dory-bly FIN-TASTIC Favorite, Made At Home

Finding-Dory-Goldfish

This may come as a SHOCK but… When I go into the kitchen to conceive a recipe… I tend to act like Dory. You know… Dory. Now stop giving your computer screen that “I don’t know WTF GiGi is talking about ONCE AGAIN“ look… You know, the bug-eyed, blue and yellow tang fish that has short term memory. The little, happy-go-lucky paracanthurus hepatus that’s voiced by Ellen Degeneres. Ringing any bells now? Well… If those hints don’t turn on the [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!]

Crushing On A Cuisine

Chicken_Shawarma_Hummus

I am absolutely in love with… Joe. He is insanely robust and tantalizing… HUBBA. HUBBA. You might be a bit taken aback by my aroused confession (and possibly confused by the swirling hunk of awesome above) considering at this point you probably all know that I have a fella in my life that ain’t your average Joe… He’s wayyyyyyyy above average But don’t be… Because he and I have a very open relationship… WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD that is!

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!]
