Stop the presses.

Holy moly, this looks delicious:

…and the name makes it sound even better: Spaghetti Con Proscuitto, Funghi e Asparagi…with cream.


But alas. I have a confession. For the past few weeks I have been a dirty sneak. I hate myself for it, but I have gone low-carb for the summer. Just saying it makes me cringe, but I’ve found it to be necessary with a rather large swimsuit shoot coming up in August. The first few days of the diet pretty much made me want to rip off the faces of those around me. Except this face…look at this thing! How could I ever rip that off? The only reason I would rip his face off is if he died and I had to get a new dog who I would pretend is still Puddy by making a mask.

I’ve heard stories about 7 year intervals in between distinct body changes. The first time I realized I was becoming womanly was around 18….and now I’ve found myself at 25, and the weight just ain’t sittin the sexy way it used to. Although I personally am happier with some love curves, the business I’m in isn’t usually too ecstatic about it so for now, I try to meet them in the middle. And it sucks.

Anyhoo. Make this for me. And don’t eat it seductively. Eat it like a rabid monster, like it’s your last meal and some bitch is gonna rip it from your hands. “My cold, dead hands.”, you say creepily.

You know what’s lame? The fact that today I have launched this amazing, ground-breaking, one-of-a-kind, world-changing, life-saving food blog, and I’m not even cooking tonight because I’m seeing — get this — “Bad Teacher”. I figure it’s at LEAST the kind of movie I won’t kill myself through. Sure, I have to pretend Cameron Diaz is sexy and Justin Timberlake is a good actor, but I *think* it will fall under the category of “watchable”, and these days, what more can you ask for?

I hope this will hold you over for the night….I am not the healthiest when it comes to eating, but this looks damned good and pretty light as well. is something I will definitely reference a lot here, and thanks to that website, I found out about, which has the writings of Stephanie Meyer (not vampire Stephanie Meyer) who created the following deliciousness….

…a Vietnamse savory pancake, AKA “Bánh Xéo”

Recipe here:

Enjoy! Let me know if you make…

Ok, ok. Fine.

I guess this occasion of me finally having a blog DOES call for having an actual blog post, not just a picture of me eating bacon. 

This, is how I blog, and yes, I always have a fully set table. Oh the things you’ll learn!:

I suppose I’ll tell you a little bit about me, right? I dunno how this works. Anyhow, I’m Chrissy. Last year I was “Christine” but I’ve now decided that I have the rest of my life to have an old lady name, so I’ll try to live it up now. 

I love food. I wake up thinking about what to make or have for lunch and dinner — I don’t love breakfast (and quite honestly, I kinda suck at making it) and the breakfasts items I doooo love tend to lean towards desserts. Seriously what the fuck is up with pancakes? Why are they so delicious and yet so terrible for you? I am constantly plagued with the question, “Why can’t delicious food be the healthy food?” Why don’t pancakes grow on trees? Why can’t spinach be the shitty food that causes love handles? Sigh. 

Anyhow, the idea of this blog is to kind of narrow down the twitter thing. I think the all-night tweeting of dinner photos was upsetting for some of the guys who purely wanted to see some ass and not even hear what I find to be witty remarks. I mean, trust me, I hear it all day. “Shut up and show your tits, bitch”. It’s something I, in a way, signed up for with starting it in the first place, but I hope this can be a place where we can talk and share our love of food and maybe some other random things here and there. So I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you have suggestions, and I love answering food questions, like great places to eat in the city, blah blah blah. But try not to be so broad! I can like a dirty noodle spot one minute then that same night go to Le Bernardin or something. And oh! If I ever say something like that again, feel free to “EGP!” me, which can mean “Ew, Gwyneth Paltrow”.

I never want anyone to think I’m a chef in any way. I just love food. I love to cook, I love to read cookbooks, and I love to eat out (har har). I’ve been known to throw an entire meal in the trash after plating in completely unjustified insecurity. And I NEVER believe people when they tell me something I made is good. I’m working on it. But I do know when other food is good, and I can’t wait to share my loves with you.. 

I get to eat some amazing things but what fun is that unless you can share it with people. You are my people : ) 

Oh also, I love to drink. So cheers to you and my new blog. Hopefully you both will have a long relationship then one person gets bored and cheats then we break up and fall in love again but things will just never be the same because I instilled all my trust in you to only read my blog and…yeah. Cheers!


WOOHOO! First post!
