Tag Archives: Cobra Starship
I have come to accept the fact that the closest I will get to Gabe Saporta is this:
I accept it. Doesn’t mean I like it. But no matter. I’m still super baller. His loss. And yes, dude. I’m an awesome dentist. I’m doing double-dontics for cryin out loud!!! Anyways, I was watching some show on Food Network, and this particular chef (highly likely that it was Claire Robinson) was making a beurre blanc sauce with an entire pound of butter. As good as it looked, I knew I could still one-up it, and make it non-dairy in the process, while still maintaining some semblance of health. Because I’m just so awesome. You know its true, don’t try to argue. You won’t win.
You all know I’ve met a few celebrities. It’s no secret. Cobra Starship. The Power Rangers. 3OH!3. Kelsey Nixon. Some, like Cobra Starship, will probably never be my patients. Others, like the Power Rangers, will set up playdates for their kids and mine some day. But someone I can count on to make me laugh and to create amazingly delicious food is Nadia Giosia, host of Cooking Channel’s “Bitchin Kitchen.” If you don’t already watch her show, you should start. The comedienne has been running her own online cooking show for the last seven years, and created the first show ever to bloom from the internet and blossom to television.
It just occurred to me that not everyone wants to read my sycophantic post about Cobra Starship before getting the recipe for Quinoa Stuffed Eggplant so I decided to repost it here, so its more easily accessible and I don’t force you all into reading about my favorite band of all time. Enjoy!
I am not a man of mystery. If you’ve spent more than 3 minutes in my company, you’ll immediately know that I’m a dentist, I love to cook, and I am a Cobra Starship groupie. Not a hardcore crazy person who follows them to every single concert or knows where they live or anything, but definitely fan enough to have met them, listen to their music daily, have at least one to ten of their songs in any given playlist on my iTunes, and sing “Good Girls Go Bad” in the shower. Ok fine so maybe I am hardcore. They are the reason I joined Twitter, the reason I met Jordan Galland, and led to me being introduced to Bryce Gruber, Renee Schmidt, & Gary Randall and then developing this blog. Good things happen to me because of this band. The Cobra’s released their fourth album this summer, “Night Shades,” recognizable for the summer hit, “You Make Me Feel…” featuring Sabi.
This is one roll you’ll never feel guilty about eating. And I know A LOT about guilty feelings after eating. Especially after that pint of haagen dazs I just scarfed (caramel cone is delicious btw). But on those random days i decide to have protein, this is the way to go. So juicy, tender, and delicious, this sexy dish will have you falling in love at the dinner table. Warning: side effects include bursting out in love song, a desire to keep eating, and an insatiable apetite for a member of the opposite sex. Do not take with alcohol or these effects may be enhanced. Boys, this dish will certainly make them good girlz go bad.
But really, a dry red wine would go AMAZINGLY with this. Do it. Serve it up with my Spiced Fries.
Once again, I have one-upped a food network celebrity chef. I’m sittin’ on my couch, minding my own business when Claire Robinson says she’s going to make “toaster strudel” from scratch. I’m like, oooo that sounds good. Until I saw what she did. She defrosted store bought pastry dough, heated up some store bought blueberry jelly, and called it home made. I’m sorry, thats worse than Sandra Lee opening up a can of baked beans, serving it, and calling it her own “semi home made” invention. Puh-leez. My home made pop tarts are made with home made pie crust, home made strawberry jam, and home made icing. YOU control the ingredients, the sugar content, and best of all is that you dont need to waste $$ buying pre-made ingredients at the store. These make a great breakfast treat, especially when combined with my Granola.
