Hey there, now more than ever I'm aware of the word "winning", but I am winning with bread today, sooo please excuse the title. :-) Speaking of, I do find myself saying "the situation" plenty on Cooking for Real and in life, trust me it was all pre-Jersey Shore. Sorry if it makes you think about GTL when all you wanna do is think about food to escape. Funny when normal everyday words and phrases get new pop-culture meanings. Remember Paris Hilton and "that's hot"? Well, I have a situation here, a recipe just came out of the oven that's hot and hopefully it's a winner! :-) Can't wait to share the details with you ...I haven't even cracked into it yet, but be sure it will be a very small crack and then I'll look for someone with a better metabolism to finish it off. It's in my Emerilware cast iron lasagna dish. I'm still in my test kitchen transferring recipes from my journal to my computer while I cook menus for season 10 of Cooking for Real. I'm enjoying this calm before the storm of taping the show. Here, it's all me, but in the studio I'm on a crew of 40+ professionals putting a show together. It's such a team effort and I miss my co-workers! I can't wait to get back!! As usual with recipe testing for future shows I can't give all the details, but I can show you how this dish started ...It's in a show I call "Sugar n Spice" for the holidays, So this won't air until it cools down again, but imho it's worth the weight, ahem wait. :-)
Hope you are having a great week in food! Cook a bit, eat out a bit, read up a bit ... but enjoy it, food is The Great Escape!
