And that’s a Picture Wrap on shooting #Chopped seasons 43-46 and #ChoppedJunior 8 & 9! Thanks to the best crew in the business for another great run, and see you in the kitchen next year! XO
I have never had such a terrible weed problem in my rooftop garden—but I’ve also never had tomatoes so early! #EarlyGirl #Yum #Homegrown

Flashback to NYC Pride 2005 with my #QueerEye brothers! We each had our own convertible Beetle in a different color—great way to see the parade—and the show was rockin’! Changed all our lives. ❤️
A gesture of respect & appreciation for women in television: Second photo shows how long it took Gregory Alan @ciaobello82 to style my hair today. @chefamandaf’s gorgeous tresses took at least 45 minutes. Similar story for Joanna Stewart’s gorj makeup! @ChoppedMakeup #Chopped @FoodNetwork
A big thank-you to our loyal #Chopped fan family—we shot our 600th episode yesterday! Whaddya say—should we do 600 more?
Awww, yeah: it’s a kitten party.
Backatcha, @joannsolomonbeauty! Thank you for your wonderful work and a great day. @foodnetwork #chopped ・・・ What a rewarding feeling being on set with my fellow taurus brother! The cool ass, down to earth @thetedallen host of @foodnetwork chopped. I did his Grooming for a special new project! I have to say it was a good day #blessed every day I get to continue sharing 💡 I am grateful. Hope you had a great day too! Here are a few smiles xx.

Kitchen insight: Ventilation is your friend. If it’s possible in your home, a strong exhaust hood system that vents to the outdoors makes it possible to cook fish without stinking up the house, roast a turkey without having to smell it for a week, pan-fry a steak without setting off the smoke alarm. I’ve partnered with @buildcom and @dwellmagazine to dream up the ultimate kitchen that blends style and efficiency. Pro tip: Put the fan and motor on the outside of the house rather than in the hood itself, and you’ll have a *much* quieter kitchen. #buildcom
Tonight’s special: Hickory-roasted Milo. #happycat #CatsOfInstagram
New album #BigColors coming soon from @TheRyanAdams is GREAT, beginning to end. Plaintive & pretty one minute, ferocious and shredding the next—and always hooky/jangly. Dreamy poetry, too. Release date April 19.
So this actually exists in NYC.

Also psyched to support the great @PointFoundation on this #GivingTuesday, an ever-growing scholarship fund for #LGBTQ college students. Imagine: Instead of being scorned by society, as we once were, guess what, kids? You're going to college—on us. #Love https://my.pointfoundation.org/donate
Today is #GivingTuesday! And I’m driving change by supporting @CityHarvest—a group that rescues & delivers good food for our NYC neighbors in need. Every dollar helps feed 8 people for a day! Join me and donate at cityharvest.org/givingtuesday #WeAreCityHarvest

Nice pour: @BrooklynBrewery Sorachi Ace, named for the rare, lemony hop it showcases. Refreshing! #NotPaid
Cutting edge tech, classic Chicago two-flat.
Image that looks kind of like a classic alien space ship in a rainbow galaxy— caused by light refracting through the bevel of a 150-year-old window and shadowing a newel post of same vintage. #irony

If you can help: My friend Judy Krizmanic is fighting brain cancer, and her family could use some support. If you're in a position to pitch in, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks! https://www.gofundme.com/judy-krizmanic-abta?pc=tw_dn_cpgntopnavlarge_r&rcid=r01-153944946779-04dca8f0450c4189
Did you know that you have to maintain wood cutting boards regularly with food-grade mineral oil? Stops splitting. Just treated mine from Unique Cutting Boards in Phoenix. Love this thing.
Big shout-out to @eleanorleonard—everybody’s rooting for ya! #TeamNora
Sadly, this Datsun B210 was my first car, in this nasty color, with these ugly-ass wheels. Floorboards rusted so badly, you could fit a Coke can through. #Regrets #IveHadAFew
This gorgeous GTO posted by @joseph_arthur is a dead ringer for what almost became my first car, when I was 16—right down to color & wheels. Hurst shifter, too. Sadly, I opted for a POS Datsun B210. Upside: Less likely to wrap a Datsun around a tree... right? #Regrets #IveHadAFew
Cheffy question: Just picked a ton of thyme—my fave herb to eat, my least fave to process. Does anybody have a trick to easily get these teeny leaves off the stem? Or should I throw the whole bush into a pot with olive oil and infuse it?
Rumors of summer being “over” are greatly exaggerated. #EndlessCaprese
Chillin’ is what Milo does, & he does it well. #catsofinstagram
Yeah, this might be good with my skirt steak. #opusone
The Davis Estates setting for last night’s dinner could not have been lovelier—and the wines were fabulous. Thanks @CapitalOne for a memorable evening!
Such a pleasure working with you tonight, Chef Danielle!
SO great catching up over yummy wine at @ClifFamily with longtime pal Anne Siegel of the great Napa shop @OliveandPoppy—check out her great jewelry, tie bars & bags!
Great big bunny! Hall Wines, St. Helena, Napa Valley.
