Announcing… Video Playlists!

Hi Gang!

We’re busy keeping a cool project under wraps but for now let’s talk about something important:  VIDEOS.

Do you watch them?  Do you like them?  Are they helpful to you in your culinary pursuits?  We hope you say YES to all three!

To make things every easier for all you awesome home cooks out there, we’ve uploaded all of our current videos to YouTube for your viewing and sharing pleasure.  We’ve also made some playlists that group the videos together according to recipe.  Take a look and see what’s helpful.

Here is our Bacon and Egg Salad Playlist, for example:

We’ve got a playlist for each recipe we’ve featured here on our blog:  chocolate souffle, cranberry-orange scones, guacamole, Nicoise salad, pan-seared steak, vinaigrette, aioli… and more!

Remember to share the videos with everyone you know — especially that colleague or cousin whom you KNOW could use the help.  We’re  are in serious need of some increased numbers, so please help us spread the word.  Yes, the same videos are also still available on Vimeo, which we prefer to use; but we noticed that YouTube is still the standard when it comes to viewing and sharing.

And, as always, we wouldn’t be here without YOU.  It’s YOUR encouragement and support that keeps up wanting to make more great videos for you.  So THANK YOU for being here with us!

WELL, THAT WAS AWKWARD…

Darlings, we’re all human. No one is perfect. Oh, and haste makes a huge pain in the ass.

It is with great humility that I inform you that last night, as I was in a rush to prepare dinner for myself, I experienced a most inconvenient kitchen accident.

What you see here is a triple-bandaided left index finger, minus its fingernail. In fact, it’s hard to type this.

But I thought you all should know — even professional chefs make mistakes and cut themselves. Though we should most definitely heed our own advice, sometimes our own digits get in the way of the knife. Even Chef Ramsay isn’t immune from such tragedy.

In fact, what happened in that video was exactly what I did last night. Except, no Ellen, no audience, no vegan stir fry (gorgeous recipe, by the way) no TV cameras (thankfully). I admire how he just kept on cooking…

Expect an in-depth how-to video on proper knife skills in the near future.

Postscript:
Two days later, the throbbing is still there… Any guesses as to how long it’ll take to grow back??
