This is a recipe I can’t take any credit for. It’s not my creation, and well, there’s really not a whole lot that can be done to improve it. It’s so good, I couldn’t not share it! This recipe for zucchini gratin comes from my homegirl, the culinary queen bee, the Barefoot Contessa herself, Miss Ina Garten.
I just flew in from Miami and boy are my arms… Cold. It’s freezing back here in New Jersey, but I don’t need to tell you that. I’m sure you’re already well aware. I do, however, need to tell you that it was actually pretty chilly in Miami too. Rather than spending our time lounging poolside, we…
Well, it’s all over. And, I didn’t win. Womp, womp. But, hey, it’s ok! When Bob Tuschman opened the red envelope and announced that I had come in third, Emma immediately ran over and threw her arms around me. If you watch my lips closely, you can see me whisper to her, “It’s all good!” […]

Another episode of Food Network Star is under my belt, and I can’t believe I made it through. This was easily the most difficult episode of the season, on so many different levels. Welllllllll, except for that one part where I got to eat a bowl of ice cream that cost about as much as […]
Woah. A whole lotta stuff went down in this episode. We arrive in Vegas, then Luca returns, I use a bunch of big confusing words, and the cowboy does a belly flop. As much as I’d like to talk about all of these things individually, there is only so much I can fit into one […]
This was a pretty rough episode for me. No way around it. So let me break it down with the best Western cliche I can think of: John Wayne Style… Err, I mean Clint Eastwood.
So, let’s just dive right into this: Resting Bitch Face. Yeah, I said it. And I still can’t believe that it actually made it into the episode. But I think it gave a little more insight into who I actually am.
What can I say, this past Sunday’s episode was siiiiiiick. We took a gander at the world of social media marketing, each of us making both a solo selfie video, and a group viral video. And in the viral video challenge, MY TEAM WON!
