So you guys really convinced me that I need a mouth guard! I was up bright and early to get fitted at Dr. Stahle’s. This time the television was turned to The Food Network, and “The Barefoot Contessa” was on. I rarely follow her recipes (she uses a lot of meat, and takes that stand mixer/food processor out waaaay too often for me) but I perked up when I watched her make a no-stir risotto – IN THE OVEN…
…also a particularly captivating episode of “This American Life” on the drive to/from Beverly Hills. I’ve been supporting this podcast for years, and have felt it’s become very hit or miss lately. I admit that I haven’t been listening as regularly, but “Play the Part” has totally brought me back!
My blog has just been nominated for The Kitchn’s “Best Healthy Cooking Blog” so for all you first-time visitors who are scrolling down, confused, I want to be honest and admit that I rarely cook from scratch (the last thing I can think of was caramelized onions, and those were done in the crockpot).
But just so you have a sense of what I DO blog about, here are some of my favorite posts from 2012 thus far – everything from restaurant reviews, to thoughts on positive body image, to the behind-the-scenes life of an actor:
- Waffle Sundae on a Friday Night
- This is Your Brain on Sugar
- Patriotic Cookies
- All Aboard the Sushi Train
- Cry Tough
- The “D” Word
- Dumpling Skins Through Thick and Thin
- Nice Girls Finish Last
- Clean Up on Aisle 4
- Grazie Mille
Basically, this is an online journal, where I occasionally share my personal views, but mostly show what I eat (yes, EVERYTHING).
Even the leftover poop pie I had for breakfast:
(That dude in the back is Julius. He doesn’t blog, but he does update his Facebook page frequently!)
Like Ira and Ina, I am not always 100% captivating, but would still love it if you took a second to vote for “The Actor’s Diet!”
