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


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!]

Baring It All, Burger Style

Wild Board Burger Wrap 1

Prepare yourself because… I’m about to BARE IT ALL… Uhhhh……  Well that’s one way to reveal that I’ll be featured in Maxim Magazine‘s March edition.  YOU WISH? But not quite… AH! That’s more like it! BEHOLD: Some naked wild boar meat… My apologizes if you were looking for something a little more risqué.  How about ground goat meat then?  Okay I will stop making you drool (or gag if you’re vegetarian? ha!) and get to the point…   There’s this burger joint… Called BareBurger, that truly [Read On!]

The Unicorn of Pumpkin Pies


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!]

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!]

Wine and Onesies Make The Perfect Pairing

Winos in onesies

After much internal debate, I’ve decided that life is pretty much TOPS when you slip yourself into a hooded, microfiber onesie and hit “the juice”… This experience reminds us of when we were all about three or four years old, when our only stress in life was making enough easy bake oven “scones” for our imaginary friends attending our three o’clock tea party. Will Mr. Fluffersnuff get enough to eat?  To the dudes reading this… Do not deny the fact [Read On!]

Notsa Carbonara


Have you ever been caught in a treacherous F-5 tornado filled with hail the size of pick-up trucks, hungry great white sharks, sharp machetes, an angry and drunk Chris Brown and the father of all monsters in Greek Mythology: Typhon? Well if you can believe it, my parents had to endure such harsh conditions on a near daily basis until I was about 14 years old, when they “slayed the beast” or in other words: sent me to boarding school. These [Read On!]

Lil Wayne’s Sundae Breakfast, Wink, Wink!

Paleo Coconut Flour Dark Chocolate Chip Waffles

I ran into Lil Wayne the other day when I wandered into Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in Hollywood… Don’t ask why I was there… I Literally RAN INTO him though… I knocked the “Obama Special” out of his hands like we were on a basketball court with 2 seconds left on the clock. As I tried to wipe the greasy chicken batter and sticky maple syrup off his brand new $120 plain white T-shirt “designed by” Kanye West… He just stared [Read On!]

Maria Menounos, Thank You!

Maria Menounos Eggplant Casserole, Every Girl's Guide to Diet & Fitness

We should all really be thankful every single day of our lives… However Thanksgiving week tends to bring out the thankfulness in even the deadliest of hippos… That being said… I just want to take a minute to appreciate a few things* I feel as though I have been taking for granted lately…. So thank you… EGGPLANT for… Being a silky smooth “operator” and taking a page from the Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger’s book and morphing into lasagna noodles for all those paleo, gluten-free, [Read On!]

Cozy Up With A Bowl of Johnny Depp

Vegan Paleo Mac and Cheese

We all have fantasies, am I right? Some of us want to run a marathon in under a two hours… Others want to feed their signature recipes to Al Roker as he reports the weather on the Today Show… While a select few of us want to go sledding down a frozen cloud, splashing into a hot spring filled with Ryan Gosling and Reynolds clones… Only to be immediately served some sizzling salmon skin by Eric Winter in gonad squeezers… Oh, [Read On!]

Recipe Redux: Lets Go Skinny Dipping!

Eggplant, Artichoke and Coriander Dip

I recently got in trouble with the law… Now while my parents aren’t exactly PROUD of me for this… I think I might actually hang my mug shot on the wall… As you can see by my booking photo, I was caught skinny dipping…  But Justin Bieber made me do it!! Ugh, the peer pressure of Hollywood… I cannot believe he and I could get in trouble for going nude, but… Nicki Minaji can get away with wearing this monstrosity. Is [Read On!]
