Instagram Photo Of The Week: Gail Meets Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio

This photo of me with Chef Tom Colichio, of Top Chef fame, taken ten years ago, has appeared in this space before, and all I can think of when I look at it now is how fat my face looks. Also, notice my heavy-lidded eyes, which give away the fact that I was also wasted on free booze. Good times.

Casa Verde’s Line of Plant-Based, Latin Meals (All Photos By Gail)

If you are like me, you love to eat, but would rather leave the cooking to others.

Instagram Photo of The Week: Thanksgiving is Back!

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving this year? I sure did. The day was hosted by my friends Lauren and Gary, with a tight, vaccinated crowd of just their immediate families, plus me, so about a dozen people in all. Very intimate and relaxed. Not only was the food just insane — because Lauren and Gary, they can cook — but everyone is on the same page politically, so there are no arguments or lost appetites. It’s the little things that mean so much. I am very thankful for friends like them. Here’s a closer look at that spread:

If you are a fan of Schitt’s Creek (and really, who isn’t) then you might recall the especially hilarious episode where David and Moira attempt to cook her mother’s recipe for enchiladas.

If you love that episode so much that you want to immortalize it in a T Shirt, you’ve come to the right place. Just Fold It In (design by Monsterobots) is on sale now in a variety of styles, sizes and colors for just $24.95 at This Link. Order early for the holidays!
