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!]

Identity Crisis Cake Doughnuts

Cake Doughnuts made of coconut flour, acorn squash, stevia and flax!

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pure Via®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PureViaSweet http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV Some days I wake up in the morning and think I am Blake Lively. However, I am quickly reminded that I am not… When I turn over, trying to grab for Ryan Reynolds’ man boobs… Only to embrace… Filbert. I’m not the only one who sometimes thinks they’re something they’re actually not… This tomato thinks it’s [Read On!]

A “Zesty” Take on Eclairs!

Paleo Pastries, an eclair recipe that is sugar, wheat, dairy, nut and soy free. This recipe can also be vegan and it uses NuZest protein powder.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, my mind… Is like a bowling ball in the gutter at a bowling alley. And when I think of the oh so flaky, yet thick and gooey éclair pastry… My mind throws gutter balls worse than a blindfolded kangaroo hopping on one foot would. I think the French created this pastry so my mind (and yours too?) can have immature field days whenever I think about this oblong, cream filled “delicacy”. However, as some of you [Read On!]

Good Mood Food: We Could All Use Some

GIGI AND GIOVANNA WITH THE NICOISE SALAD

Let me take a WILD guess as to what happened to you this morning… You woke up after pressing snooze for about 45 minutes. Realizing that you’re going to be extremely late, you wrestle with your TRUE love (your lush pillow but of course) only to fall flat on your face thanks to your bed pulling a “piledriver” on you… A move that’s even banned from the WWE. After regaining consciousness, you dizzily race on over to your “trusty” liquid energizer (your [Read On!]

Joan Rivers: A Toast To You!

GiGI Dubois and Tara Redfield pay tribute to Joan RIvers

Joan Rivers and I met a couple of times when I worked at E! Entertainment. “THE TWINS” circa Feb 2011! OMG am I wearing… GASP: HEELS? Check us out now MAKING POP TARTS! I’m still shocked she never once told me that my outfits look like regurgitated remnants of a broken garbage disposal. The dress code in the GiGi Eats kitchen! She didn’t even say ANYTHING about my Adidas sandals that have been surgically fused to my feet for the past 6 years. I wonder how many plastic [Read On!]

Recipe Redux: Get Chip-Faced with Chipkins

Pumpkin Chips, called Chipkins

Dehydration is never a good look in Hollywood…. Can you guess the fashion designer? I could have posted another photo of Tara Reid, but no need to “rib” on her again!   Or anywhere for that matter…  Is this normal? Cat people – weigh in…   EXCEPT for… THE KITCHEN! Uh, please do take a minute to check out this sensual food pornography…   Today I am serving up dehydrated pumpkin chips, or what I like to call CHIPKINS! It’s [Read On!]

Gobble Up These Turbutkles!

Turkey, Butternut Squash and Kale Bites

Do you suffer from, Brumotactillophobia or…  In other words: do you FLIP OUT if any food on your plate touches? Well then… The following (and then some) are not your friends: Chili Fruit at the Bottom Yogurt Katy Perry Scrambled Eggs Tacos Stir Fries Nicki Minaj Anything Made on The Food Network Channel Thanksgiving Dinner My Refrigerator  And…  Turbutkle Bites Phew! It’s a good thing I don’t have such a phobia or else I would DEFINITELY starve to death… I would never dance like a stripper [Read On!]

Tara Reid Eats Too Many Creamsicles

Yay for healthy creamsicles!

Tara Reid and Creamsicles have a lot of similar not so sexy attributes… But to name just two… They’re both orange (most of the time)… And… They’re both full of artificial chemicals and ingredients. Sorry Tara, I just couldn’t resist. If the saying, “you are what you eat” is true… Then Tara must be subsisting solely on Creamsicles (okay, and maybe Cheetos as well). Sadly, I don’t think I will be able to save Tara from her demons, however, all is not lost for the [Read On!]

In-N-Out of My Kitchen

In-N-Out Burger Secret Menu, Healthy Animal Style Burger with Grass Fed beef

I have to say, for a dirty mind like mine… As I have established in the past… In-N-Out is probably my favorite fast food restaurant name because it serves as a “playground” for my naughty (and VIVID) imagination! Unfortunately, while In-N-Out boasts being a “healthier” fast food chain (and has my brain swinging on monkey bars), this joint acts more like the bully near the seesaw for your health (albeit healthier than say… Taco Bell’s XXL Stuft Burrito). Because of [Read On!]
