Episode 009: You've Gotta Go Full Island
We're back! I know it's been a while, but we're totally back to chat your ears off. I'm going to tell you about my Hawaiian vacation. Beth will tell you about getting drunk on airplanes. I'll try not to cry on the podcast and end up giving you too much info about bikini waxing--plus soooo much more. I hope you enjoy it! xox Gina went to Hawaii. It was a REALLY big deal. Huzzah. You can see some photos here. Bone broth is kind of like having a pet. Except, you eat it. Do you know about TSA pre-check? Because, it's the best. Adulting. What does it even mean? Also, birthdays are rough. PSA: Don't try to do your own bikini wax. It's awkward. Note: Bryan Adams is not the same as Ryan Adams. PSA PART TWO: If you don't drink water for eight years, you might die. If you don't like water, you can try to infuse it! Get a bunch of great ideas here. Watch this cat video. Meow. Also, this one. GMO Salmon makes us feel scared inside. Like dogs? Want Facebook to totally rule? You should join Cool Dog Group. Have questions for us? Write to us here!

Episode 008: Disaster Date
Hey, Friends! Beth and I are back to chat about all things fall, a date gone horribly wrong, what happens when mercury goes into retrograde, and how we're both sweating while trying to use pumpkin pie spice. Fall has not been cold in California, but that does not change our need for comfort food. Did I mention that Beth had the sniffles and I had a fever while recording this? I mean...What could go wrong? Nothing. We're total professionals. ;)Don't forget to find us on iTunes, where you can easily subscribe and download these episodes to your desired listening device. If you're enjoying to podcast, and would be so kind as to leave us a review, we'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much to all of you for listening, and those of you who have taken the time to rate us and write to us and all the things. We love hearing from you! xoxHere are the notes: • Dating is not usually disastrous when your're married, unless mercury is in retrograde and you decide to eat here for your anniversary. (DON'T) • If you're going to serve something called "BBQ Water", you best make sure it doesn't suck. Because, ew. • If you're ever in Portland, Maine you should totally eat at this hyper-local restaurant. It won't be a disaster and they don't serve BBQ Water. • If you ever find yourself in Julian, California, go see Jeremy. He makes a good burger. • Do you ever wink at people when you're nervous? Because, maybe I do. ;) • We got reader questions. We tell you how we met. It turns out it wasn't at all like Dirty Dancing. • We are into fall food. Gina baked you this Grain-Free Spiced Kabocha Squash Pie, and Beth made you this Grain-Free Apple Berry Crumb Pie. Other things we thnk you should make this fall: Sausage Soup with Kale, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Apple Cider Margaritas, and Curried Shepherds Pie with Sweet Potato Mash!Thanks so much for listening!

Episode 007: Pizza Pits & Doppledads
You guys!! We're back on the air this week, talking about all the things you probably don't need to know, and maybe a a few things you do. But, before I dive into the notes, this is the part where I ask you oh so kindly if you'll do us a solid and rate us or write us a quick review on iTunes. We'd be forever grateful. Seriously. Like, if we had one of those fancy walls where we write people's names who are important, we'd write your name on it. Here are the show notes for this week: Periscope is a new social media platform where you can hang out with us in real time and ask questions. It's awkward and terrifying and also a lot of fun. You should come hang out. First download the Periscope app to your phone. Then, search for @SoLetsHangOut and @TastyYummies. Generally Periscope is pretty great. But, there was this one time that Gina decided to live stream detoxing her armpits. Barely anyone came. You can catch the replay here and feel embarrassed for her. Is it weird to smell like pizza? The answer is probably yes. We try our best not to swear on our podcast and keep things family friendly. But, sometimes we just want to be like Thug Kitchen. WARNING: There is language. Mean Girls is a great movie. But, it's also art imitating life. Life lesson: Don't be a dick to your girlfriends. Remember the saga of DOPPELDAD, my dad's doppelganger? Well, all is revealed in this episode. GET EXCITED. This is Matt. He makes amazing drinks. You should follow him here, and maybe here. Or, pre-order his book here. Dude. The internet is ruining pizza. Check out this video of them making it into a cone? Or, how about when then turn pizza into PIZZA. STAWWWWWP THE MADDNESS!! Oh, if you're looking for a delicious sugar-filled indulgence-- try out my Gluten-Free Funfetti Cake. We maybe sing Wilson Phillips one too many times in this episode. I'd apologize... but, meh. You know you wanna sing along. Thanks so much for hanging out with us!! If you have questions for us, write to us here.

Episode 004: Hump On A Log
In this episode: Gina went to LA where she got to visit family, hang out with Beth, and witness the craziest display of dog humping possibly EVER. Beth made meatballs. Mama couldn't have them. But, Mama don't care. Cosmopolitan Magazine wants us to spice up our lives by having sex on campfire logs. We're asking questions. Lots of them. Some thoughts on Magic Mike XXL and why wearing that amount of baby oil is dangerous. Don't put a wooden spoon in your food processor while it's running. Also, make your broth in a slow cooker. Life lessons. Gina googled herself and ended up finding a few things. A world record for bee bearding as well as her father's doppelgänger. Yes, a dad-ppelgänger. Mind blown. This iPhone ap might tell you that you look like Angelina Jolie or Jeff Goldblum. Pretty much the same. Almond Flour vs. Coconut Flour. THEY'RE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE SAME THING. We're walking you through it. Turns out the internet is making everything into a dip. We're not into pizza dip. But, s'mores dip looks dangerous. These allergy friendly marshmallows are everything. Did you ever do da dip? Or, maybe the tootsee roll? We did. Also, the dinosaur.

Episode 003: There Will Be Blood
In this episode.... Gina had to face her EXTREME fears and give ALL the blood. So, she gives you the anxiety girl's guide on surviving a blood draw. Even when no one gives you a cookie, and your phlebotomist is having an existential crisis. Don't give yourself your own B-12 shots if you are afraid of needles. A cautionary tale, as proven around the 8:00 minute mark on this video. Beth got a new watch. She can text me from it. It's the future and we're a little scared. Summer is happening. We want to eat all the popsicles. We recommend these Roasted Blueberry & Lemony Yogurt Pops as well as these Bourbon Tea Lemonade Popsicles With Peaches! There's also plenty of time for alllll the Ceviche, all the Poke, tons of Shrimp Tacos, and this dessert that includes both roasted fruit and cookies. Because, WIN! There's stuff we wanna do this summer. Gina is lusting after beach house rentals and wanting to put her toes in the sand. Beth is going to Wanderlust to do all the yoga and hopefully not hide in her room. Beth spent her childhood summers camping all the places. Gina went to circus camp run by a hippie clown.

Garbage TV is like low grade meditation. Beth is all about The Real Housewives. Gina can't stop watching The Bachelorette. We both have very low standards.

Episode 001: First Times
It’s the first ever episode of The So…Let’s Hang Out Podcast! Yay! We’re so glad you’re listening. Since it’s the first episode, it’s only fitting that we’re talking about FIRST TIMES. You know, like… The first jobs we ever had, first kisses, first crushes, probably WAY too much about NKOTB and a myriad of other embarrassing things. Gina confesses to being a truly ridiculous human being while sharing the story of her first kiss and the poetry she wrote about it. Oh, and that time that she dressed up like a member of the band TLC for Halloween. Because, you know… all the cool kids were doing it (they weren’t). Beth accidentally lets it slip that she had a crush on her Aunt’s boyfriend (because, he had a horse—duh) and shares a story about a date night gone wrong with her now husband, Mark. We share how awkward it is to start blogging, and how we both got off to a rocky start. Gina’s first blog post included SKEE-lo lyrics. Beth’s first blog post reads more like an apology. We also discuss our tumultuous relationships with smoothie bowls and the ever so cunning watermelon cake trend—plus, we give you some tips on how to snack healthy throughout the week! Thank you so much for hanging out! You can follow us both around the web @soletshangout and @tastyyummies on both Instagram and Twitter. Have a question for us? Write to us here.
