The Press and Swirl

May 10, 2010

I had no idea someone was taking video of me frosting cupcakes at the BBQ this weekend (click on the link below 🙂 Thanks Nando!

It’s all about the press and swirl–here’s how on 12seconds.tv

This video is me applying Peanut-Buttercream Frosting to Peanut-Butter Filled Chocolate Cupcakes… yummy!

Disclaimer: at the end I drop the KNIFE not the cupcake (which I put back on the tray).  The knife was then cleaned before continuing, just want to be clear.

Artichokes. Don’t Be Intimidated.

April 21, 2010

Ever wondered how on earth people prepare and stuff artichokes for dinner parties.  “How do they find time” “They are braver then I”… these are the things your tell yourself.

Get over your fear… artichokes won’t hurt you.

In fact they’re a delicious, simple, and elegant way to start a dinner party or enjoy an evening at home.

Here’s a helpful video.  Her stuffing is great, I also enjoy using breadcrumbs, feta, garlic, and sundried tomatoes.

Late Night with Julia Child

April 9, 2010

Usually on nights I have work events I stagger..er…walk in the door STARVING and — if we’re honest — slightly tipsy.  Last night was no exception.  After an eventful evening at Cirque du Soliel Ovo (which was delightful, highly recommend) I was ready to eat a horse… or at least leftover tenderloin.  Wouldn’t you know, Keith had already eaten it and was quietly slumbering — imagine my outrage.

Once I ascertained all I had in the apartment were a couple of eggs, some butter (always) and Swiss cheese… clearly, I made an omelette.

Cliche as it is, I’m a fanatic fan of the classic French omelette a la Julia Child; once I got over the initial fear/hopeless mess of my first try, I fell in love with this simple (and delicious) meal/snack/late night binge.  This video is how I learned on a lunch break at work… you can do the same.

IMPORTANT TIP: DO NOT SKIMP ON THE REAL BUTTER.

Eat Hearty!
