5 May

What hurts? EVERYTHING. Holy crap, I am tired.

I flew 6 times in the past week. 6 flights. 6 times experiencing TSA security. 6 times of airplane bar-boozing, avoiding the dreaded, “Soooooooo do you have a contact number?”. 6 times that I watched people crowd the gate like the airline would only let those most eager on the airplane. 6 times I just had to go to the best (worst) people watching place on the planet. The airport.


But oh my body hurts. Was supposed to go to LA Monday morning, but no. I need to be at home. And so the decision has been made. I STAY HOME AND COOK FOR YOU ALLLLLLL WEEK! I promise. I know. You’ve heard this before but I do appreciate your patience…

As you may or may not know, John has started filming “Duets” in LA. Along with Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke, John is a mentor to young artists and a judge to others. Like “The Voice”, but the artists do duets with their team members. Different theme each week. So proud and happy for him. And those other 3? They are truly great people. I’m just honestly, sickly thrilled that you guys get to see John in a way you’ve never seen before. And I’m slightly jealous that he gets to judge people for a job while I sit here doing it for free.

Anyhow, since I will be in LA more in the next few months, the dogs are out there as well. I’m lonely when in NYC, but that’s probably better for you and this blog 🙂

I have had an awesome surge of subscribers lately, so it kinda…really…sucks that  I haven’t been home to post much. They must think I’m the laziest fuck on earth (while you long-time followers KNOW I am).

So what am I doing here? Just want to link you to the good ol’ days. You know. The one where I used my food blog to actually post recipes. Ha! Remember that!? Aaaah that was cool.

Based on site hits, comments, and searches, here are some of my (and your) favorites!

Apple-Pecan-Blue Cheese Salad with Cherries (I hate salad. I love this salad)

Chipotle Chicken (the fucking best, spiciest, juiciest chicken you’ll ever fucking have)

Mexican Lasagna (delicious, but worst photos ever posted here, and that is saying a lot)

Peach-Whiskey Chicken (it’s the shit. trust me, trust fall style)

Herbed-Baked Eggs (best breakfast to ever enter your mouth unless you love crack)

Boursin and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast (I mean.)

Spicy Sesame Noodles with Chicken (crowd PLEASER)

Lemon-Garlic-Bacon Chicken (duh)

Baked Catfish and Eggs (so easy I still feel stupid posting it)

Scalloped Potatoes (dammit carbs I love you)

Thai Beef Salad (aaaah fresh, tart, and delicious)

That should suffice for now! Cooking tonight though. Post up by tomorrow morning. If you like lamb, potatoes and brussels sprouts, I think I have a simple and succccculent little Sunday dinner for you!

Miss you guys.

    just started following your blog once I realized we have nearly identical taste in food+booze- tried the baked herbsneggs recipe (HIT) and making my ingredient list for some others. I appreciate the low carb recipes since leaving out the delicious white stuff agrees with the lovely autoimmune disease that I have. (them carbs d’ taste so good but hurt so bad) cant wait to see whats next!

    I am a big fan of John, can’t wait to see the show. I did have the pleasure of attending one of his concerts here in Cali. Please post more pics. of him in something other that a white T-shirt, and not stuffing his face. Loving the Pioneer Woman’s recipes!

    I must tell you I’ve been making the spicy sesame noodles once a week since you blogged about them (that sesame sauce is incredible), and your scalloped potatoes have made more than one appearance on our dinner table. You have great taste, so please keep posting recipes!

    So I’ve been avidly reading your blog for a while now, and I just have to say that your blog has made me excited about cooking again. As a twenty something with a new “grown up” job, I have to remind myself that I need to make time for things like… ham cups and chipotle chicken! Keep doing you, girl. Your sass is refreshing.

    I made the boursin and bacon stuffed chicken breast and wowed friends. So easy and so delicious. I added green beans to the pan along with the tomatoes so I didn’t have to separately prepare a side dish. I don’t eat meat that often, but when I do, it’s one of your recipes.

    This line is why I love your writing so much. “And I’m slightly jealous that he gets to judge people for a job while I sit here doing it for free.”

    Keep up the good work Chrissy!

    Hi I put a comment on a much older post but my first and last name showed up in the comment thread ( mac did autofill). Is there a way you can have all comments I have posted on your site removed? I don’t like the fact my full info is there Or I can give you the comment # and the post for you to delete it? Thanks

    You are the best!

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you have introduced on your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters. May you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.|

    […] I want to keep telling you how good it is, but it’s Chrissy Teigen’s and she does a much better job declaring her love for this stuff than I can. Read her opinions about it here and here and here. […]
