I’ve see many variations of the french fry pizza combo, but none that actually looked like a pizza. Using cheese as a glue to hold the fries together I was able to create a crust and build a pizza on top of it. As an added bonus for those of you who want to be health conscience while eating a pizza on top of your french fries, it’s gluten free! Recipe is as follows: Continue reading
I hate leftover stir fry, it’s get so soggy and unappetizing. Also, it seems like never enough for more than one solid portion. With this trick you can get two meals for one by transforming those leftovers into delicious crispy dumplings. Just 2 cups of leftover stir fry can make 20 dumplings. That’s right, 20. This works for egg roll filling too!
Cake cutting causes more issues than need be, due to knives being too short, making sure slices are even and causing infomercial type messes. The solution? Dental floss. Simply cut a long piece of dental floss and use it as a cutting tool as shown in the video.
I came up this this DIY diddy in a pinch when I was having a Make Your Own Sushi Party and the store had only two mats that would be shared among 12 people, not good. Despite regular grocery stores now carrying all the ingredients needed to make sushi, they often don’t stock the tool to accompany the tastes. I was making the basic items and was having everyone bring a sushi stuffing ingredient of their choice, so there was no chance for a last minute switcheroo. Plans were set. As I didn’t want a watch and wait type of soiree, I grabbed some bamboo skewers and some extra sake(incase this idea didn’t work) and headed home. With a little hustle and some creative license I made sushi mats. The additional sake was still consumed despite the crises aversion or to celebrate the success depending on your disposition. Enough chatter, here is the full instructional: Continue reading
Saw a video the other day about separating egg yolks with a water bottle. It was amazing, and so much so that I had to try it for myself. After the initial shock of how well it worked wore off, I decided to up the ante by seeing if you can you do more than 1. The answer is ….
It was my birthday last week and to celebrate we invited some friends over for a celebratory feast. I wanted to make something that was a fun throwback to my childhood, a little treat/present to myself that could be shared with friends. With adding another item to the birthday food smorgasbord, it had to be simple enough to be done ahead of time and not take too much effort to serve up to the guest upon arrival. Simple, childhood, fun…Frito Pies! Growing up in New Mexico, the Frito Pie is a well-known staple of high school sports concession stands everywhere. Some will say that the Frito Pie is of Texan origin, made by the mother of the chips inventor, but I among others believe it was the creation of Teresa Hernandez at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Am I being biased? Yes. Yes I am. So I ventured to my local snack chip store, the bodega, and bought every last bag of single serving Frito’s. On a side note, the look on a cashier’s face when you drop 27 bags of Frito’s on the counter is priceless. I only thing I said was, “they’re not all for me”, and left it at that. Onto the cooking!

Coming up on Valentine’s day I decided to make something fun for the lady. I noticed she always kept candy in the freezer and swore that it tasted better that way. Fair enough. So as a little present I decided to turn our refrigerator’s ice cube dispenser into a freezing cold candy machine. I picked up a few bags of her favorites and armed only with an x-acto knife, tape measure, duct tape and foam core, I made possible so that when the ice lever is pushed on the fridge door candy shoots out! Instructions after the jump. Continue reading
