Obsessed with Buttercream

Obsessed with Buttercream

| July 8, 2008 | 2 Comments

Ever since my birthday about two weeks ago, I have been mildly obsessed. Okay. Completely obsessed. With what? Buttercream frosting. The name itself just rolls from the tongue in sweet harmony. It all started with the beautiful marble cake that Shawn bought for me. It had this delicious creamy frosting and was decorated with a […]

Sorry, folks, I missed Episode 3 on account of being (incredibly) sick. But I am back with some notes on episode 4. Don’t forget to leave a comment and tell me what you thought. The most annoying award goes to Nipa for her eek-ook-aak-squeal over the fish. Get it together, lady. But she didn’t and […]

Last night, I live blogged the finale of Top Chef Chicago. I know, I know — should have told you all that I was going to do that! But, it was sort of on a whim. Once thing I did find with live blogging was that there wasn’t a whole lot of time to insert […]

Here we go, folks. I decided that in honor of the final episode, I would try something I have never done before: live blogging . . . Warning, if you haven’t seen the episode, this will be a spoiler.

Well, I caught both episodes — or most of them — on Sunday. I’m going to keep this one very brief, only because I am short on time . . . It was no surprise that Cory went home during week 1. I think she had a great opportunity to blend her comedy and cooking […]

It’s Friday . . . an ugly Friday, but Friday nonetheless. It sounds like it will be a wickedly bad weekend weather-wise, so that may further delay the finishing touches of my very cool raised bed garden . . . Sigh. Here’s a few things I wanted to share: First, I am not a chef, […]

Top Chef Chicago: Week 13 Reflections

I am so disappointed. This elimination was a nail biter. Antonia undercooked those beans (couldn’t you just read the subtext of “how long did you soak these beans for?”). Lisa has been a bottom two dweller since . . . well for the whole run. Could Lisa actually make it through another week? Yes. Yes, […]

To quote Dirty Dancing, when I am wrong, I say I am wrong. Last week I indicated that I didn’t think Lisa could find her way around a steak but Richard could . . . um, what a shock that was. Richard’s was undercooked and improperly butchered . . . and Lisa’s wasn’t. So, Spike […]

Alright, alright. I am really late on this. I did watch on Wednesday, but a combination of factors (laptop at service center, really busy, needing to – gasp – sleep) prevented me from finishing in a timely manner. Regardless, here’s what I thought. As always, I cannot wait to hear what you all thought too. […]
