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!]

What A Hunky Flower!


There is a butternut squash on my floor… Vegan protein powder scattered all over my counter, coconut oil in my mouth and a bag of frozen cauliflower melting… Oh crap… Still in the car! Do you realize what this means? If your guess is… “you must have pregnancy brain…” Well you are EXTREMELY FAR from being right… OR if your guess is… “you have $2.99 melting in the back seat of your car…” Okay, technically, yes, you’re correct.  However, if your guess [Read On!]

A Pie That Will Make You Cream


Pumpkin called me bitching the other day… He’s apparently straight up exhausted from being used. Used in pies, lattes, cookies, waffles, soups, chips, dips, sauces, cakes… EVERYTHING. Perhaps Pumpkin needs a pumpkin energy bar…?  Har… Har…  My advice to him: “SUCK IT UP [pumpkin] CUPCAKE! It’s only the end of September… If you’re already feeling HOLLOW now… You’re going to be one BITTER MELON come November… And no one wants a SOUR PIE!” Clearly I am extremely sympathetic and supportive (and the [Read On!]

Guess The Food, Taiwan Edition!

Whole Squid Roasted

I got in a UFC-like fight with China Airlines… And China Airlines won. But really… I feel like I got hit by a plane… Or like I got thrown out of a plane without a parachute, landing head first into an over-sized, ripe cactus-tree. Or… Stuck in the airplane bathroom after someone spent far too long in there, after their in-flight meal… And speaking of meals… I have a little “mealy” game for you… I will call it: GUESS THE [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!]

Recipe Fail? You Be The Judge!

Dafoc muffins - foccacia fail

HONESTY…. Yep, that’s a rarity here in Hollywood… So just call me a purple polka-dotted sky-diving unicorn because… I will ALWAYS tell you the truth. I’ll tell you that… A. When I first moved to Los Angeles… I did something that could be seen as completely stereotypical and if dug up from the depths, I would take FULL responsibility for it. B. I am FULLY capable of eating two WHOLE chickens and 10 pounds of salmon in ONE sitting. C. Some days, [Read On!]

Protein-Packed Crunchy Love Bites

Healthy Chocolate Truffles with Hemp Seeds, No Bake, Manitoba Harvest

You know that one day of the year (that happened to have just past) where everyone showers their loved ones with flowers, candies and chocolate hot sauce in bed other gifts (ahem, how many of you got engaged and/or married on this day?)? Well I don’t get why showing your love for others is dedicated to only one single day of the year… Shouldn’t you be experimenting in the bedroom on the daily? You see, my Valentine’s Day wasn’t all that different from any [Read On!]

Taylor Swift Baked Us Cookies

Taylor Swift gives no fucks

“Oh my goodness, I am going to be a GREAT grammy!!!!! How far along are you dear?!” “Excuse me, but no… I called THIS room a month ago, have fun sleeping on the blow up mattress in the laundry room since mom and dad turned your room into their home gym… Oh and the dishwasher is full, it’s your turn to empty it.” While your grandmother may have offended you by asking how far along you are… Damn holiday parties with their damn towers [Read On!]

Maria Menounos, Thank You!

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….
