Feeling philanthropic, we decided to enter a cooking competition.


Summa Health System’s 11th annual Men Who Cook Fundraiser is Friday and we hope with our dish, and the other 51 contestants and entrees, raise a ton of money for Palliative Care (supportive/pain) and Hospice Services (Cancer).

Men Who Cook this Friday

Total of 52 different dishes? I almost guarantee you’d be too full to sample everyone’s entrees. Or…prove me wrong and eat 52 courses.

It’s a Vegas theme so dress like you’re so money baby!

Double down....

What: Summa Health System’s 11th annual Men Who Cook fundraising event will show off the best dishes from our favorite local amateur chefs – everyone from Summa physicians to business leaders to firefighters and policemen.

sneak peek at our slider...Mmmmmmm

Are you drooling yet? Want some?

Shhhhhh! We’re planning to bribe the top female judges. #sexytime Heh heh heh.

I better start prepping for the estimated 300…Man, this is similar to a Top Chef challenge huh?

300 plates in 4 hours....Man that's tough!

Plus you’ll get a chance to meet all the crews from @QuarryLaneFarms

(QLF’s secret word for this competition in “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a”)

Rumor has it, Pete Kenworthy(petekenworthy) from WEWS-5 has got a mean white chicken chili. I can’t wait to try it.


Who knows, maybe we’ll arm wrestle him too.

So come on out and support a great cause!

Since Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Top Chef All-Stars reunion was Wednesday night, I decided to break the post into four parts. This will allow you to equally pee your pants for the next four days. If you haven’t watched it yet, do it now.

This is Part 2 of 4 (Part 1 of 4 here).

Antonia and her tarp-like underwear

Top Chef contestant Antonia Lofaso is a fashion disaster. Unless its cool to show your bra strap (hello Britney Spears) – I don’t think BravoTV wanted you to represent.

Antonia's outfit purchased at Dumpy McGees Department Store

Several occasions the camera panned to see your tarp-like off white underwear frothing peeking out from your pants. Woof! If you’re gonna show some sexy time, at least make it worth a glance.

One piece = bad news

Now I’m not saying that you have to be the sexiest Chef to win…

Not hot....

…but at least keep your dumpy mommy bra and granny panties tucked in.

Chef Antonia knawing on a...piece of

If you as me – In or out? I’m out.

Hanging with Fabio-except on Halloween

This dude needs to dial it down a notch….or notche. He’s making my seducing man skills look bad.

Yeah, he's my fan favorite (not big bird)

As a dude, I’d hang with him. Seems to be fun and we could get him to do all kinds of crazy things.

And of course, all….all….I mean ALL the women love him.

Damn you Fabio!

Yep-I’d hang with Fabio. Honestly, I’d probably end up getting alot of the fugly tag-along friends, but hey-he seems like a good dude.

What the.....

Except on Halloween.

oh god....brrruurufsfsldjfhwkerjhqew

I just threw up in my mouth.

Pansy Jamie Lauren hates children

Why do you not enjoy children? Are you evil? Or is it because you’re the same height as every child?

Jamie's view of all children

Stitches? You are a pansy.

I’ve had three stitches and I went directly back to work and I didn’t need a lollypop.


Wuss out

You are not a Top Chef.

Fan favorite Carla is really Big Bird

Congrats on the Fan Favorite vote.

Carla = Big Bird

There I said it.

Big Bird = Carla

No kidding huh? I know you agree.


Part-3 tomorrow….aka Riperts breasts.
