Toby's comments will be joining us in teletype.
|Julia Child has been teaching us a lot. I love this method of cooking an egg, mostly because it's so cute.|
|We use a lot of olive oil, so I proposed to Toby that we order some from the orchard I visited in Spain.|
He was totally on board once he found out we could get it in a 5L tin.
|I made these flowers out of clay! Idea courtesy of Martha Stewart's Craft of the Day.|
|The Tobester searing some meat for beef pot pies.|
You may notice that the gloves I'm wearing are not typical oven gloves. That is correct. We had some standard oven gloves that behaved pretty typically, but they couldn't hold the extra-hot stuff. Go out to the grill, get burned. Well, I went to an industrial supply catalog and ordered some real hot gloves. The ones I'm wearing are good up to 1000degF (intermittensly) and let me laugh at 500degF pans.
|The finished filling for the beef pot pies.|
|Our first attempt at homemade ravioli.|
Those are filled with dungeness crab that Toby bravely prepared and cooked himself.
|My first attempt at a cherry pie. I pitted every single one of those cherries with a bobby pin.|
|Behold my flaky crust!|
|Cluttered desk, now with portraits I made in high school.|
|I don't really go swing dancing any more, but this is a cute photo so I included it.|
|Dancing with Alberto at Salsa Con Todo. This is the studio that I have joined in Fremont.|
I taught a freestyle workshop there last weekend.
