Follow the culinary adventures and misadventures of the Cooking Agents (Ray and Katie). Watch as we eat/cook our way into adulthood.
I’ve decided to come out of my hell hole to give Ray a break. Ray, you can thank me later by posting a video. If you don’t, you will be sorry. Please refer to crazy statue monkey below.
I have his number… don’t make me call him
Haha, I am too much sometimes. On this past Friday, I cooked dinner for my extended family and built the menu around my grandma’s favorite foods, cauliflower and salmon. Though the result was out of this world fantastic, I neglected to bring my Nikon with me for the trip home since I told myself I would focus. Damn it for being responsible and studious!!!!! However, I loved the salmon en papillote and roasted cauliflower puree so much, I’ll probably do it again when I go back to Boston. I vow to be a cooking/photographing/blogging monster. Pinky swear!
In the meantime, I will post about a guilty pleasure of mine… pancakes! I have a thing about ordering pancakes when I go out for breakfast. And by a thing, I mean I don’t. When I visited Ray, I ordered over easy eggs at the Original Pancake House. Really? you’re thinking. Yes, really.
NO PANCAKES, NO!
I am by no means a snob because Lord knows I make terrible pancakes from scratch. I also loudly and proudly support the use of Bisquick. Yes, I said Bisquick. Deal with it. When I make my “lazy man’s” pancakes, I’ll jazz them up with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and some combination of mushed up bananas, blueberries, and/or chocolate chips. The result? Always a perfectly fluffy and satisfying stack of pancakes. Do I doubt the pros can do this better than I can? Maybe. Perhaps I’m just not willing to let them win.
Fortunately, I “the lazy man” have not resorted to the shake and pour Bisquick. I would not allow myself to
fall plummet from grace like that. And so the mystery continues as I will never concede defeat to restaurant/diner pancakes.
Good to be back for 15 minutes. Until the 28th guys!
