I have some exciting news to announce! After making a promotional video for National Grilled Cheese Month (watch it if you haven’t!), I was contacted by Tablespoon.com (a website under the General Mills brand). They wanted to know if I had made the video (I did!), as they were interested in a video partnership to produce similar content for their website! After emailing back and forth, we decided a great topic for the first video/blog post would be “How to Roll a Spring Roll”.
Let’s start this post with a little disclaimer. Yes, Bodum sent this stuff for free, no I’m not gonna suck up to them, if this product actually sucked, I would let you know! Besides we will be GIVING AWAY a FREE Immersion blender and set of mixing bowls to one lucky reader, and we wouldn’t want to give you something that we didn’t like, even if it is free! So let’s get started on this BS’ in the Kitchen “No BS” review!
Yesterday I received an email regarding an interesting new project called ‘The You Generation‘, which is basically a YouTube talent search being put on by SYCO (Simon Cowell’s media company). Now, I should mention we are not receiving anything for posting this, but I was intrigued enough to spread the word! Plus Epic Meal Time is involved and they are hilarious.
The You Generation is currently open for YouTube submissions until this Saturday April 13th in their “Fantastic Food Challenge”. Check it out if you’re into the whole food video thing! (I’m think I might need to enter this!). There are a ton of other categories you can check out as well.
While this post may be a little untimely as summer has reached its end, there is never a bad time for anything coffee related, at least not for me! I actually made this in June, but haven’t gotten around to posting it because it’s another VIDEO POST! Of course I shot it, started editing it, made the music, and when it was almost finished, got busy with other things and didn’t wrap things up until now! But alas, here it is, the delicious cold brewed coffee for your reading/viewing pleasure.
Prior to making this, I kept seeing and hearing things about Cold Brewed Coffee and how great it was, then it showed up in the July 2012 issue of Bon Appetit (which I subscribe to) and being the coffee addict I am I had to try it! As stated in the name, what sets this coffee apart is the fact that it’s “cold brewed”. Instead of running through your regular coffee making method (pouring some steaming hot water over your beans for a brew), you let it sit at room temperature in cold water for around 15 hours! Now that’s a long time when you’re fiending for a cup of joe, but that’s why you make it ahead of time, resulting in an even quicker way to get your fix when you really need it.
