Watch Mario Eat: Maple Bacon Biscuits


When it’s your friend’s birthday and you gotta keep it cute and share but you know you the real MVP.

Watch Mario Eat: Apple Blosspm Quiche!


Mario thought real men don’t eat quiche…but boy was he wrong! He loved today’s Apple Blossom Quiche!

If you love Mario, quiche, and all thing breakfast comment below!

Watch Mario Eat: Apple Cheddar Biscuits


Today’s edition of Sunday Brunch featured a recipe for Apple Cheddar Biscuits. This is the second week the chef has prepared an apple dish, and I’m not so sure Mario was happy about it. If you don’t know by now, Mario loves ooey, gooey dishes and doesn’t care much for dry pasties. But, like the pro that he is, he kept his personal feelings in check and ate the whole thing. 

Here’s our favorite journalist digging deeper into the dish:

Watch Mario Eat: Monkey Bread Danish 


A little monkey business in the studio this week! Standing in front of a bacon mural (one of his faves), Mario gets down and dirty with this sticky sensation. Showcasing his love of finger foods, he unapologetically dug right in. We all know he isn’t afraid of a little goo.

This breakfast treat gets two huge, wet, sticky thumbs up!

Watch Mario Eat: Tiramisu Crepes!


Lots of “ooohhs” and “ahhhs” in the studio this morning for the Tiramisu Crepes. Mario couldn’t wait to dig into this culinary delight, and of course, he LOVED it!  Get your fill on these delicious faces…

 

Watch Mario Eat: Ricotta Honey Triangles

Nothing wrong with gooey.


What better way to celebrate Easter than to watch our loveable local celebrity taste tester Mario Hilario nosh on some delicious treats? There is no better way. Don’t even bother going to church today because watching this will give you eternal life!

Today’s menu is Ricotta Honey Triangles and honey, they were a delight! Chef Terranova warned him they might be a little gooey, but that wasn’t stopping him.

Nothing wrong with gooey. – Mario

That’s right, Mario. Ain’t nothing wrong with gooey.

Did he say gooey?
Ohhhhh, he did! I love gooey!

 

Here we goooooo….

 

Just the tip! *Nom nom nom*

 

omgsodelicious

 

You want some?

 

Ok, I may have underestimated the goo. This is incredibly sticky.

 

But I’m a  goddamn champ. Delicious!

 

Watch Mario Eat: Cinnamon Buns!


Who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon buns wafting through the house on a Sunday morning? Our favorite on-screen taste tester Mario Hilario is no exception. Today’s recipe was this household staple, but with a twist: currants instead of raisins! While our fearless foodie admitted to never having tried currants, but took the plunge anyway. Watch as Mario rides the wave from skeptic to full-fledged fan!

Recipe: SUCCESS

Cinnamon Buns with Currants?? Yes please!

Lookin’ Good, Shithead!


I’m a pretty routine person.

During the work week, I wake up at the same time every day. Depending on my level of soreness, I have been going to the gym 3-4 days at 5:30 am. Once home, I begin my morning ritual: pee, start the shower, strip down, step on the scale, curse the scale, step off, immediately step on it again because maybe I read it wrong?, realize I did read it wrong and it actually went UP, curse the scale, angrily get into the shower, lather, rinse, repeat. I make a 12 cup pot of coffee in my trusty Mr. Coffee because it will inevitably get fucked up if I try to order it elsewhere. I pack my own lunches and snacks for work, mostly because I’m cheap, but also because I try to be healthy(ish). I leave the house at the same time, +/- three minutes to get to work on time.

Routines. Continue reading “Lookin’ Good, Shithead!”

Funnier Broad: Alessandra Grima

This interview took place one night over a bottle of wine and several hours of laughter.

Alessandra Grima is a modern-day Renaissance woman. Over the past few years, I’ve seen her perform in our local comedy scene. Recently, I’ve come to realize she’s more than just a comic. Instagram sensation, actress, model, comic, singer, fashion designer.


Look! It's Alessandra in the wild!
Look! It’s Alessandra in the wild!

Alessandra Grima is a modern-day Renaissance woman. Over the past few years, I’ve seen her perform in our local comedy scene. Recently, I’ve come to realize she’s more than just a comic. Instagram sensation, actress, model, comic, singer, fashion designer. You name it, she’s done it.

This interview took place one night over a bottle of wine and several hours of laughter. I recorded our mildly intoxicated conversation, which has now lead into an accidental podcast (which is coming soon — hopefully). While that is under construction,  I wanted to share the highlight reel of the interview. Enjoy! Continue reading “Funnier Broad: Alessandra Grima”
