A Souped-Up Comparison

Pumpkin Soup Collage

You know what? Pumpkin, the orange gourd that’s WILDLY popular in the fall and winter months as I know you’re familiar with, could most certainly be compared to the Toy Story movie franchise. Hear me out… Now you can’t deny the fact that anticipation for a new Toy Story movie is always there (common 2019!)… Which pretty much mirrors the excitement for pumpkin season that tends to always linger in our minds all the time. Then when there are roughly [Read On!]

DON’T FORGET TO DO THIS…

chicken-or-fish

Over the course of the past several months, I feel as though I have actually turned into what I eat… A SALMON! That’s because I have been traveling just as much as a salmon does… in order to reach new feeding grounds? (I guess that comparison does actually work… Because I mean, FOOD is what I do!) It all started… Way back in September when I embarked on a culinary journey through Greece and Italy with my main foodie squeeze, The Food [Read On!]

YOU TOTALLY WANT THIS STUFF… Don’t Lie! A Bizarrely Awesome Gift Guide!

weird-holiday-gift-guide

When you cross out the ST from the word STUFF… You are left with the letters: UFF. And UFF is the noise I make when I feel like I HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF. UFF. I mean… Is… THIS… EXTREMELY NECESSARY… UFF. OR… This? UFF. What about… These? UFF. I may, however, be a rare breed because TYPICALLY people will take the word STUFF… Cross out the U-F-F, move the T before the S and add PRSEN to it. PRESENTS. Because who [Read On!]

Hey Sexy Cookie, You’re Actually Just A Cutie!

paleo-christmas-cuties-cookies

Because I am one curious baby dolphin… I GOOGLE IMAGED the word CUTE to see EXACTLY what photos would be curated. Now the reason for this search was because the amount of times people have called me “CUTE” (and definitely NOT sexy… WOMP. WOMP.)… Had me convinced that MY mug shot would pop up first in the search engine results. Alas, I was wrong… Instead… This is what popped up… Okay, Gina (The Trainer) wasn’t ACTUALLY the first photo to show up… But [Read On!]

Nacho Average B.R.I.S.K.E.T.

brisket-nachos

Basically  Ready In Seconds (and) Kickin’ Every Tastebud Sure… You could probably come up with at least twenty billion (or more?) foods that can be ready in next to no time AND make you want to jump in front of a bus for… But I highly doubt BRISKET* (did you catch on to my acronym) is on that list of consumables.  Sure… If you’re NOT a vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian/meat-free eater… BRISKET* (and it’s undeniably delicious aroma) PROBABLY brainwashes you into wanting to risk your life in a [Read On!]

Will He Swallow? A Protein Powder Taste Test…

protein-powder-taste-test

There are plenty of fish in the sea. Or so the saying goes. THANKFULLY and LUCKILY I can now say that on my last fishing trip… I hooked me a biggie. Photo by Cary Pennington And we all know at this point how much I LOVE fish! Now this same cliche… That gives all single men and women a twinge of hope, that they won’t wind up yelling at noisy hoodlums and retiring in Florida alone, as they cast their [Read On!]

I’m GETTING MY VERY OWN GIRAFFE!

golf-wedding-photos

Yep. You read that correctly. So no point in making an appointment to get your eyes checked. Really, though… I am more just typing this out for myself because… WHA…?! I am in UTTER DISBELIEF!  I am FINALLY getting my GIRAFFE, I have ALWAYS DREAMED OF GETTING?!?! WHAT?! WHEN!? WHO?! HUH?! I’m sure those thoughts are typically what circulate through your brain when you read any of my blog posts… So just to clarify… I’m NOT actually hopping on an airplane this weekend [Read On!]

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!]

Fixate On This Recipe

While I have FINALLY finished “MUNCHING THE MED“… It’s going to take a hot minute or two for me to get over my EXTREME EUROPEAN FOOD COMA… So in the meantime, here’s a message from “our” sponsors… Autumn is the time of year where pumpkins tend to whore themselves out worse than juicing tries to convince you that it’s healthier than eating the actual piece of produce (but you don’t fall for that, right?). Don’t get me wrong, I love [Read On!]

Do You Have Your Seat Belt On? #HelloTahoe

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!]
