In the kitchen

When I was asked to participate in a little cooking segment for WCIU's You&Me in the Morning with Jane Monzures, I couldn't figure out how they would be able to film in my tiny kitchen without it being all boobs and fire...I mean that is a lot of voluptuousness right next to the stove! I remained confident that Chris, the camera man, would have things well in hand, and proceeded with reckless abandon. Well, Chris and Jane rocked it and I think it turned out pretty well in the end! I did, however, learn a couple of things if I ever have the opportunity to cook on camera again.
  • When working next to a diminutive host avoid wearing an apron with ruffles around the midsection. Enough said.
  • Consider perspective when selecting the dish to prepare. Those tiny pancakes are delicious, but next time I might cook up a side of beef just to keep the size perspective in my favor. Anyone would look smaller on camera while holding a 20lb Turkey than a 5 oz quail. Duh. Lesson learned.
  • I think my voice is horribly shrill and "um" and "there you go" are things I should not ever be allowed to say. "Kit and Kaboodle," however, is totally fair game.
Beyond that I thought, for a first attempt at cooking on camera, it went pretty well!
Check out the segment below and then try out the recipe!
