This ICE Is Nuts

COCONUT LIME POPSICLES

A lot of people think I am kind of nuts. My rebuttal to this claim is typically: If the saying, you are what you eat, holds true… Then I am 100% NOT nuts… Because I cannot eat them!  However… Some might consider coconut to be a nut (NEWSFLASH: it’s a fruit), and as you all may very well know at this point, coconut byproducts are my go-to staples for pretty much all of my recipes (although I have yet to make [Read On!]

Not Zipping My Lips Over This!

Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Sugar, Nut, Fruit- Free

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ZiplocBackToSchool #CollectiveBias    I am not one to zip and lock my lips… Ever. In other words, I “suffer” from what you might call, “word vomit,” much to my mother’s chagrin. I could blame genetics… But I mean, I won’t? So when there are thoughts/ideas swimming through my mind, my mouth fires them out like cannon balls. Anyone cannon ball into a pool yet this summer? [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!]

Rethinking That Wiener

Pigs In A Blanket Revamped

I feel EXTREMELY bad for cocktail weenies. They REEAALLLLYYY lost in the name department. Imagine if you met someone named Cocktail Weenie… The first thing you would think (or at least I would)… I wonder how many ‘EAT ME‘ signs were stuck on his back in grade school? And I wonder if people STILL do it…” Mmmm… Smoky, fatty, crusty cocktail weenies, with a little ketchup, but of course. Sure, the name is rather unfortunate, and sort of reminds me [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!]

HOT DOG! These Are Good!

FishDogs-PoultryDogs

The dog days of SUMMER… Woof. It’s a universal truth that… SUMMER… SOOOOOO hot right now. I bet those Jenner girls along with their ridiculously “caked” minions are all TOTES JELLY of SUMMER… Because she is just naturally hot. I wonder if these “asselfie”-taking obsessed ladies would be jealous of me around this time of year too because when the heat from the sweltering sun gets to me, I tend to turn into a pissed-off double-humped camel… And you know, camels [Read On!]

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

Finding-Dory-Goldfish

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!]

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!]

Teenage Mutant Mint Chip Ice Cream

Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael would most certainly be exorbitantly flabbergasted by the absolute inventive brilliance I am about to reveal to you. That’s because the creation is engineered and sculpted to the highest degree of perfection. I have a SLIGHT feeling Leonardo would have said: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication… If he had the chance to gaze upon the masterpiece. And Donatello might have actually wanted to hire me (or Vianessa, who helped me in the kitchen this week) as one of [Read On!]

Crushing On A Cuisine

I am absolutely in love with… Joe. He is insanely robust and tantalizing… HUBBA. HUBBA. You might be a bit taken aback by my aroused confession (and possibly confused by the swirling hunk of awesome above) considering at this point you probably all know that I have a fella in my life that ain’t your average Joe… He’s wayyyyyyyy above average But don’t be… Because he and I have a very open relationship… WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD that is!

I Was Poisoning Myself…

I_WAS_POISONING_MYSELF

Over here in THE STATES… It’s full-on SPRINGTIME! And you know what that means!? Ladies… It’s time to start wearing bras and shaving your legs again… And gentlemen… DAMMIT! So lucky! You don’t have to shave your legs or wear bras! AND YOU GET TO PEE STANDING UP! Or do you? Well while you may certainly want to CONSIDER doing those things (but hey, do what you want!)… What really comes to mind when I think “springtime” is: Spring cleaning. It’s time [Read On!]
