Competition

But Why?

A coworker brought fresh tomatoes and patty pan squash from her garden to share with us today. I can’t wait to use them this week!

I’m confused. I was surfing around the JTV main page yesterday to see if I could figure out how the removal of the Channel Bar helps in page load time and with letting viewers know you are broadcasting and was surprised by an ad that was running.

Ramblings, the Phelps Phrenzy and a Business Idea!

No End in Sight

I am trying to remember a time when the world Blog wasn’t in my lexicon, when I didn’t have countless pages of words to read, written by strangers and ideas and thoughts swimming around in my head that clamor for the exit so that they can make it down to my fingertips, on to the keyboard and pages of the blog. I’m not much of a “commenter” on the blogs that I read. Just as I wrangle and worry and fret over the words I string together in this blog, I do the same when I am composing a comment. Just as I always did when I worked in the halls of Corporate America, writing, reviewing, editing, rewriting, reviewing, editing, writing… you get the picture. I wanted to be sure each thought was coherent, that the sentences were constructed properly and that what I had to say had merit and was worth the time the recipient was going to take to read the piece.

Quiet Night

Ravioli Night

Rather than sit here with the computer perched on my lap writing about JTV and the antics that go on with the lifecasting network, I thought I’d take a break and watch the Olympics. But before that, have you seen this article featuring our very own Justin Kan? And OMG! I love the word Kerfluffle! You’ll probably want to check out the article for it to make sense.

Time to Pack Up the Moving Van and a Different Sunday Dinner

Moving

No! I am not moving. I have big moving news though. I spent most of the day working on a move of the blog with help from a JTV fan and Justopia viewer. For all the wacked weirdness on JTV, there are so many wonderful people I’ve had the opportunity to come in contact with and as in today’s offer of help, there are so many people that are willing to assist.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Tools of the Trade and a Plug for Justopia.com

A night of cooking fun in Justopia doesn’t go by without the use of one of my favorite kitchen tools. I thought I’d bring out a few of tools I have in my drawers or in the bain marie that holds spatulas and ladles and rasps and more so that you don’t have to go another night without a post from the Justopian kitchen.

As I noted in yesterday’s post, I was worried. I was wringing my hands about the season finale of The Next Food Network Star because one of the finalists was going to be doing a pilot of a show where he cooked “live on the internet.”

I was worried that it would be so great that the network would be clamoring to make it a show and … well, you can read about my fears in Saturday’s post right here in What Do I Do Now??!!

Lime-Nectarine-Mascarpone-Ginger Snap Tart

Wow! My heart skipped a beat this morning and then it sank. I was surfing around, checking my blog stats, reading mail and just generally idling the morning away when I had a real shock. One of today’s comments alerted me to the fact that one of the contestant’s on the season finale of The Next Food Network Star tomorrow night will be presenting his show online! He’ll be cooking for an online audience. At least that’s the way I understand it.
