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!]

Getting My Burger On With Tom Bergeron

tom-bergeron-burger

As much as you may not want to admit it… You’ve totally thought about what competition reality show you’d CRUSH like GODZILLA! You can’t say you’ve never filled out an on-line application… Only to delete it because you snapped out of your momentary lapse in insanity… To: Gain a BIG BROTHER… Prance around NAKED AND AFRAID… Jump into a SHARK TANK… Get CHOPPED… Or even stick your fist in your mouth for THE BACHELOR. Oh, so you still don’t want to tell [Read On!]

He’s ALL That, Shrimp Scampi With Freddie Prinze Jr.

freddie-prinze-jr-shrimp-scampi

I’ve told you this before and I know you’ve seen it first hand in my videos, but I am going to reiterate it once again… My mind wanders off ALL… THE… TIME… It loves to just stroll away like an angry toddler from his/her parents. Thankfully no amber alerts ever need to be called for my brain, cause I have purchased a leash for it.  A few examples of my brain acting like a bit of a vagabond, though… When I [Read On!]

Chicken Smoothie: Don’t Be A Chicken, TRY IT!

chicken smoothie

I’d be lying if I told all of you that… I AM SMOOTH LIKE BUTTA in social situations… Or just in general. And we all know that I would NEVER lie to any of you (in fact, I am a little TOO blunt at times)… So truthfully, I am about as smooth as the surface of the moon… When it comes to… Um, yeah, dealing with this thing called life. People who have met me, seen my YouTube videos, follow [Read On!]

I’m Ripping Off The Band-Aid And Asking

Best Home Cook GiGi Dubois

Look at you riding in on your SPARKLING regal white thoroughbred stallion… Oh wait… Is that just an obnoxiously stubborn braying gray mule? Well, whatever. I appreciate you trying to channel your inner Old Spice Guy to come help me! That being said… I have to confess… I am the type of person who hates asking for help. HATES IT. If I were hanging off the edge of a 500-foot glacier… Fingers slipping because I am known for being quite the “butterfingers” (which [Read On!]

It’s Time For A Do Over

Paleo Buffalo Wings Legs

I am 10,000% POSITIVE that ALL OF YOU have wished at one point or another that you could “DO OVER” at least one crappy instance/decision/event in your life… For instance… Do any of these situations ring a bell: “Why the heck did I think it would be a GOOD idea to agree to watch my neighbor’s four-year-old sextuplets while she’s on a week-long cruise through the Mediterranean… The day after I get my infected MUST COME OUT NOW wisdom teeth [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!]

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!]

Beast Mode: The Literal Meaning

GiGi_Dubois_Pole_Dancing

BLUE WHALES… PYGMY SHREWS… STAR-NOSED MOLES and… HUMMINGBIRDS… Yep. All of these animals are my appetite’s doppelganger. Blue Whales devour roughly 1.5 million calories a day. Pygmy Shrews need to eat every hour or else THEY WILL DIE. Star-Nosed Moles find and swallow their sustenance in less than a quarter of a second. And Hummingbirds eat twice their weight in grub. Now don’t I just sound (and look) like a circus freak. It’s actually kind of shocking to me that no one [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!]

What It’s Like To Run A Marathon Without Training AT ALL

Landon-Ashworth-Marathon

My giraffe (read: fiance) is bat-shit crazy but I adore him more than salmon skin. Yep. I said it… Wait… Wait… Can I have both… Yes? PHEW! Thank GOD! He’s the type of guy that… When he wants something… He immediately goes after it… If only you knew “our story”… And below is just one such example of how SPUR OF THE MOMENT my “never a dull moment” fiance is… I ran a marathon with absolutely no training. I also [Read On!]
