During tonight’s broadcast someone asked me if the year has gone quickly or if it feels like it’s been a year since I began the Justopia Cooks broadcast and as I took a moment to reflect I thought the answer was really both

Twitter and the News and Tomorrow is an Auspicious Day!!

Current Events

MissouriMatt came through with help and taught me how to style the plate

As some of you have seen, CNN has become enamored with Twitter, the microblogging web app in which you post messages up to 140 characters long to a list of followers. I returned home after work, put my things down, washed up, sat down and turned on the TV to see what’s been going on in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

JTV and Justopia Milestones with Pie Pictures


I am prompted to write about JTV and the announcement of all time high viewer counts — again. I worked late tonight, so there was no cooking and no food photos. Instead, let’s chat about the 101,000 simultaneous viewers on JTV. This is the blog post that communicated the milestone. What I found most interesting were some of the comments. There are complaints of a sluggish network and comments about how the removal of the Channel Bar is the sole reason for the spike in viewership.

More Television and a Different Kind of Muse

What’s Next You Ask and Where’s the Food?!

Just when it seemed as though no spectacle could top the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, in less than 24 hours we have the Democratic Convention to draw our attention. No matter whom you favor for president, the conventions are likely to provide you with something riveting to watch each night.

Breakfast With Justopia

Matzoh Brei

I woke up hungry this morning. Not a usual occurrence. I think it’s probably because I went to bed thinking about making matzoh brei. I have had a box in the pantry since Passover and thought that if I didn’t use it, it would need to go in the garbage soon.

It’s About the Food!

Grilling Night



I was in a steak mood when I woke up this morning. I had lots of good produce in the fridge to draw from to make one DEElicious dinner! I have more on my plate in terms of work that needs to get done, than there are hours in the day, so tonight’s blog post is going to be a tour of the tasty treats that we prepared tonight and a reminder to post a comment telling me what you would do with two chicken breasts. They can be boneless, bone in, skin on or skin off, boiled, broiled, roasted, grilled, fried, poached or any other way you’d like to share with us.
