Ever since I got my new waffle iron I’ve been wanting to make crazy waffled concoctions, so far this is the craziest I’ve gotten. We will need to remedy this soon.
I have no idea how this much cute was packed into less than two minutes of video, but it seriously made my day. Like a thousand times over.
In other news, am I the only one who has apparently been wasting my broccoli stems?? She shouldn’t have posted that on April 1st because I’m still not sure if it’s a joke or not… I’m going to test this for us though. Don’t worry, I’ll be our guinea pig.
And apparently we are all under-seasoning our dishes… I know I’m definitely guilty of that one. No matter how much salt I put into a dish I know that FH is just going to salt it up anyway, so I try to trick him into consuming less salt by under-salting our meals…
Have you seen these amazing laser-engraved rolling pins? I can’t think of a better way to spend $42… can you? DINOSAUR ALL THE THINGS!!!
Some Kitchen Stories has released their April desktop calendar and it is filled to the top with spring. I’m sure staring at risotto all day can’t be that bad, right? Plus, vegetables!
Serious Eats just did an expose (can I call it that? Sure, why not?) on “The Life of a Cook’s Illustrated Test Cook” and I realize I’m a huge nerd but, um, you should read it.
Also, remember Shannon’s post once upon a time ago about how us bloggers “get out there” in the world? Well, we met (kinda) through Serious Eats “Share Your Sweets” slideshows. And you don’t have to be a blogger even to share your sweet! This week’s sweet is the Oatmeal Cookie. I know you all have an oatmeal cookie recipe. Make it, snap a pic, and shoot it over to Serious Eats!
In other news, not only have mad scientists reversed aging in mice, but apparently I’m going to live forever. Oh, and fat is no longer bad for us. Well, not as bad as all those low-fat foods they’ve been marketing to us.
Also, apparently I wasn’t the only person who hated Starbucks’ “La Boulange” food items and the company is responding to their customers by bringing back some of the old items (yay!) I picked up a slice of their lemon loaf this morning to celebrate its return. Oh, how I missed you.
Oh, and Kim Kardashian narrowly escaped death (or you know, being touched by an elephant) and made a priceless face while doing so.
Thanks, Kim, for making my day that much brighter. Can’t wait to see that episode next season.
As for the recipes…
I want to dive into this soft pile of naan pillows
Shower myself in these honey roasted chickpeas
Drown myself in these cucumber + ginger mojitos
Stuff my face with this turkey bacon meatloaf
And devour at least one pan of these Reese’s brownies. Or at least the frosting. Look at the frosting. LOOK AT IT!
