Olive Oil, “Culination”, and the Rollie EggMaster

Here is a nice piece from The Splendid Table about what “Extra Virgin” olive oil really means. It’s very interesting and informative, and comes complete with a video, recipe, and recommendations.

Also, apparently over half of Americans would rather do taxes than making and eating a homemade meal. Holy cow! Now that’s pretty bad!
Culination hopes to help change that, and is an “e-learning community that connects seasoned chefs with home cooks.” It’s designed to be informative and interactive, and is a great way to learn more about food and how to make it not such a chore to make and enjoy a homemade meal.
My favorite line from the article is: “we want your kitchen to be a place of inspiration, not intimidation.”

It is a well said, succinct sentence that is something K and I also firmly believe. We want you to use the Every Bite cookbook as a way to be enthusiastic and inspired to be in the kitchen; not dreading or avoiding it.

And this is just something funny I (C) saw on “Sandwich Morning” on NPR. What the heck?! I just do NOT want my eggs shaped like that! GROSS! The video is funny (and that’s it’s an actual thing is a little scary), but it’s the comments that are particularly hilarious!

It was a hard choice (it always is when we have to get rid of a picture; they’re all our babies!), but this one of our Roasted Chicken didn’t make the final cut. It sure was tasty though to snack on after we took pictures of it! Mmmm mmmm!!
