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!]

Mean Girls Is Quite The Holiday Movie

Regina, Gretchen and Karen of Mean Girls as Christmas, New Year's Eve and Thanksgiving

“Okay seriously Christmas, I’m sorry that [you’re] so jealous of me… I can’t help that I’m so popular!” “Shove a Kalteen Bar in your pie whole, Thanksgiving. PS: Stop trying to make ‘FETCH’ happen.” “I can stick my fist in my mouth,” New Year’s Eve chimed in. At that absurd comment, both Thanksgiving and Christmas looked at New Year’s Eve with utter disgust and downright embarrassment. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, on the surface seem to be civil with [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!]

Water You Drinking?

GiGi chokes on water

You’d think one of the worst experiences when drinking water is to chug a few gulps… Only to notice… Some teeny, tiny, fluffy bunnies… Or excuse me, food particles (perhaps some left over cinnamon bun from four days ago… Or remnants of the Honey Nut Cheerios you gobbled up this morning…) floating around in it. Wait, was that even your water? I know when this happens to me, I don’t need to grab a spoon in order to make myself [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!]

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!]
