How Did They Miss Me?! What You Did On Your Summer Vacation and Should I Be Worried?

USA Today

You can see from the shot in the USA Today article that the Show Me the Curry ladies have set up their kitchen as a studio a bit more elaborately than my set up 😉

I received mail from a friend this morning about an article in USA Today that made my heart sink just a little. It went like this:

Frannie,
FYI, there’s a big feature story about amateur web cooking shows on the front of the USA Today Life section today. I was disappointed that you weren’t interviewed — please fire your agent.

Two things stand out here:

  1. I wasn’t mentioned in the article!
  2. I don’t have an agent!

When I read the article I realized they were talking about recorded cooking video, not live .TV style cooking which is my claim to non-fame. What I do is not as produced as what Show Me the Curry puts together for their YouTube videos, but they are not able to interact and engage their viewers in real time like I am.

To Cook Through or Not to Cook Through?

Obsession – and We’re Not Talking Perfume People!

This is the chicken I took out of the pot after 3 hours of steeping in a white “Master Broth” according to Kylie Kwong’s recipe

So. We know I have a compulsive, rather obsessive personality. There is no disputing that. I’d be a liar if I even attempted to say otherwise and this is what makes this decision so difficult. So I’m going to let you help me make the decision. Continue reading

New JTV Features and Last Night’s F Word x 2

iCal Integration and JTV Networks

Tonight we made a DEElicious Asian meal of a Radish-soy salad, Shrimp with a Honey Garlic Sauce and Steamed Rice

Justin.tv has been launching new features or upgrades or improvements or tweaks on Fridays very consistently for a number of months now and some have been pretty useful and fun. Today’s releases are great. For those of us that use iCalendar, the Mac calendar app, we can now use it to update our channel calendars which is awesome news because the old way of updating the calendar was time consuming and clusy. Each month I would spend a ridiculous amount of time posting new events to the calendar.

Should I Become a Dabbawala??

Lunch Fare

I haven’t cooked on camera the past two nights because of my work schedule, so I thought I’d put up some of my shots of India and a video or two

From what I’ve seen, Bento Boxes are a big deal in the blog world. I’ve run across blogs that detail a Bento Box art and blog about Cute Bento Boxes with Western ingredients and blogs about Building a Better Bento Box. It goes on and on. There’s even a Flickr group dedicated to the Bento Box!

Puts a Smile on Your Face

Where the Hell is Matt?

I had a nice cappuccino to start the day

Tenten asked me if I have been following the guy, Matt, that’s been dancing his way around the world. I couldn’t remember, but once I started watching the video it rung a bell. I think I saw something about this guy sometime last year. The video made me smile all the way through and I challenge you to not smile as you watch it. I also watched the outtakes video. It was good entertainment.

A Summer Meal and a Trixie_Higgins Dinner Broadcast Treat

No Broadcast, but a DEElicious Meal Nonetheless

I thought I’d photograph tonight’s meal, even though I didn’t broadcast it. I wanted to show you that even though I had no company for dinner, I still treated myself to a DEElicious meal. And I do mean DEElicious! It only took about 45 minutes to put together and most of that time was spent pan grilling the vegetables.
