What’s New Pussycat

life - movies

It’s hard for things not to feel difficult today.

Been better lately.  Thank you for your sweet comments – even though you can’t see them, I can read them.  By the way, I’m reworking the site to deal with these technical issues, and will be launching a complete makeover in the next few months.  Would love your feedback on what you like, what you could see less/more of, etc.


Been on a pumpkin kick lately.  Mixed into yogurt (above) with pumpkin pie spice and shoved into sandwiches (below).


This was an exciting night…


…as you may remember, I’m a rabid Karate Kid fan – look who I got to watch it “with”



and meet!!!

P.S. The KCRW Good Food Pie Contest is coming up – listen to my interview with Evan Kleiman from last year and enter your pie here.


Oscar Nom Noms 2014


Did you all catch Emily on Community last night?!?


You can watch us playing sisters online now too!

Abe and I haven’t hosted our annual Oscar Nom Noms Party since 2012 – and unfortunately, we’ll have to wait another year. But I can’t help but think of what dishes would’ve been good to serve; here are some ideas my brain was drumming up during Awards Season.

American Hustle – Microwave Dinner. Try not to set it on fire.


Captain Phillips – They were kinda busy NOT eating. The only thing I remember was coffee, during a crew break at the beginning?

930353 - Captain Phillips

Dallas Buyers Club – Grocery Store Chips! “Ron” yells at “Rayon” for eating it, but I can’t remember what brand it was – Doritos? Pringles?


Gravity – Astronaut Ice Cream washed down with some Vodka Shots.


Her – Asian Fusion food from the future. Kaya Kimchi Ramen Egg Rolls.


Nebraska – Lots of beer.  Lots of corn.  Beer cornbread?


Philomena – Ham and Swiss Cheese Omelet!

12 Years a Slave – Afternoon Tea + Cookies. I think they had Macarons…


The Wolf of Wall Street – Lobster.  You can waste it, if you choose to be a jerk.

Inside Llewyn Davis wasn’t nominated, but gets an honorable mention because I’ve been craving Moussaka ever since I saw it!



What’s New Pussycat

I DON’T WANNA TALK ABOUT PILOT SEASON. I had the worst one in almost two decades last year and this one is looking to be equally traumatic. So instead of contemplating why I’m an actor (for the millionth time) I’m working on my taxes, watching weird 80’s movies with Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix, and reading this incredible blog, which I heard about on Evan’s Good Food – maybe I can convince the author to come on my show too???

Speaking of podcasts, the guests on Mariann and Jasmin’s show lately have been unbelievable – Mayim Balik, Kevin and TK from Veggie Grill, and Joanna Rohrback, aka THE PRANCERCISE WOMAN.

If you don’t know what Prancercise is…

Here’s another couple videos! Abe was so inspired by our food tripping experiences, he made one for BuzzFeed….

…and my Thick Dumpling Skin cofounder Lisa Lee gave us a birthday present by appearing on the news, talking about eating disorders, body image, and how we started the site.


I’ve been eating a ton of leftover DeSano Pizza lately, though we did have a great dinner last night at M Cafe and the best “lunch” at Le Pain Quotidien


This is their new Warm Chocolate Banana Millet Bread – very similar to the Chia Muffin, above.


Tzi (who treated us) said those two tasted too healthy for him – though the danish and chocolate croissants were right up his alley.  Happy Hump Day, loves!
