my beautiful distraction


 

Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients

 

~~~I bake.

It’s part of my therapy.

It’s part of my remedy,  my cure.

It’s my beautiful distraction,  my dear.

You might even say it’s an addiction in the
kitchen.

Just look at the curves & crooks of my ass ( Picasso
would have treasured me), and you’ll begin to understand I take pure pleasure
in

melting milk chocolate in double broilers,

measuring brown sugar in glass cups,

stirring sweet butter in Gold Medal Flour.

I collect cookbooks.

I scan baking blogs.

I watch cooking shows.

Sometimes I sit at my stainless steel table
nigella_lawson
on Sundays with Nigella Lawson, The Barefoot Contessa, or Giada De Laurentiis.

Sometimes I actually bake the delectable
desserts from the vibrant photos in those books. For example, I made these sins   Nigela Lawson Totally Chocolate Chip Cookies Oh, My!

But seriously, I aint no Contessa, or Nigella, or Giada.

Not even close.

And I sure as hell don’t resemble a sexy
mama when I’m makin’ triple chocolate chip cookies.

Me with my hair piled high on my head- Amy
Winehouse style,

my
old Bon-Jovi T-shirt,

my second
hand sweat pants,

my glass of red wine sitting on the edge of the stove.

The Contessa would be aghast.

Anyways,

I’ve obtained quite a reputation about my
baking ability, or shall I say lack of.

For example,  I forget to add eggs in some of my recipes.

I leave out the baking soda
& salt.

I alter the directions.

Bad bad  girl.

And I burn the first batch of
e v e r y t h i n g…

because rather than focus on the
task at hand, I’m blogging, babe, blogging.

I’m Burning, babe, burning.

:::::What a beautiful distraction.:::::

    Did you ever see the South Park episode where they spoofed on the FoodNetwork? It was hilarious!

    Ina Garten makes it look so freakin’ easy! I want her kitchen! I want her house in the Hamptons!

    Burn baby burn! You’re Italian! Of course you’re a great cook! All Italians are!! Does Mr. Liverpool cook? You know, Pork Pies, fish and chips, Shepard’s Pie….

    Kiss the cook! Muuah!

    Hee hee! I like to think of myself as a Nigella (except less pretty) as I couldn’t care less about the amount of butter I’m consuming. But I have been known to have some baking disasters.

    Fortunately, I only follow very easy recipes. Anything requiring more than a few processes, I tune out.

    Baking is my beautiful distraction too!

    Kim – you KNOW I love this! Before my doctor said that I HAD to get healthy, I baked all. the. time! LOVE baking! That’s why I HAVE to have a once-a-month indulgence post. I miss baking every day, but I find that creating healthy dishes that actually taste good is it’s own fun!

    I also use cooking as therapy. Whenever I travel to visit family, I take my knives, a favorite pan or two, a couple of go-to cookbooks and some spices. Can’t go anywhere without them!

    ….and I love bloggin’ bay-bee!

    P.S. With the exception of me in an apron and shorts – we look remarkably alike in the kitchen! …and Ina’s my fave, too!

    I don’t bake. But I consider myself a good cook. The reason I don’t bake is because if I did, my husband and I would weigh 300 pounds each. So I watch the Top Chef shows and improvise (except on the baked goods). My husband encourages me to do that because I usually turn out masterpieces after I’ve gotten some inspiration.

    One evening (after several, SEVERAL) drinks a friend and I decided that we wanted chocolate chip cookies. So rather than driving to the store we smartly decided to make some. Now this would be a good idea, unless you are us. She was reading the ingredients and I was measuring and mixing. We were so excited to get the first batch out of the oven. No sooner than the timer went off we darted to the kitchen to gobble up our goodies. We both took a bite and discovered that we had added too much salt. Either she said tablespoon rather than teaspoon or I grabbed the tablespoon rather than the teaspoon. Either way, we laughed and laughed and still to this day laugh about that night.

    Baking is good for the soul. It feeds the senses and makes for great comfort food. None of us look like Nigella or the Barefoot Contessa when we cook, but it’s fun all the same. Even better when we can wear our comfy clothes to do it in. Good for you!

    Oh yes, baking IS therapy. It’s what I do whenever I’m questioning or feeling a lack of anything. And when I’m feeling happy too! I am lucky to not be overweight so I don’t really worry about how much I bake 😉 I have ALWAYS loved baking from the time I was a small child. That is why I started my blog. Hey, to avoid some of those little problems you mentioned, be sure to read through our recipe all the way through before you start, and be sure to take out all your ingredients first and set them on the counter. When you are done mixing everything up, read your ingredient list and recipe again to make sure you didn’t forget anything . 🙂 Good luck!

    Doing things in the kitchen is definitely therapy. While I don’t bake (two wonderful bakeries on the road where I live are to blame), I do cook most things from scratch in our Indian cuisine, so that’s a lot of roasting, frying, grinding and mixing. I love it. The smells, the heat of the stove, the happy feeling that it is all going to be enjoyed….mmmm. AND the cleaning up. Actually yes.

    You sound like a fabulous cook – I found myself drooling at the end of the post (no damage to keyboard though! had tissues on the ready!) I can just visualize you – so cute!

    Yes, I’d totally kiss the cook! MMuah!

    Love, love, love to bake, too! But I cannot blog and bake at the same time because I refuse to set a timer (thinking I will smell when something’s done), and once my eyes are on the computer I forget about ALL else. Which means burned, scorched, incinerated cookies and such. When Nigella used to write for the NY Times, I made all her recipes and loved them. I must get her cookbook. I picture you in the kitchen like a young Julia Child–tossing back the wine, forgetting ingredients and laughing about it, dropping chickens on the floor, etc.. Have fun! Save me some of those Nigella cookies–from the second batch.

    I luuurve Nigella and the Barefoot Contessa!

    I often forget all important ingredients when baking too, I had to knead baking powder into my Christmas cookie dough on Christmas Eve after the first batch didn’t rise (oops). The worst slip ups are always when I’ve made a recipe a gazillion times and think I can remember all the ingredients, I’m bound to miss 1 or 2 crucial ones and disaster ensues.

    Those choc chip cookies look divine! …and it wouldn’t be baking without a glass of red within arms reach 😉

    Blogging and baking sounds good to me. Add a martini or a glass of wine and I would be set.

    Lady, the Contessa ain’t got nothing on you! Know why? Cause what you bake, you bake with love! Does it matter if it’s burned, missing ingredients, or flat? I think not! Not when it comes from a funny, kind hearted soul like you. So, put up your hair, roll back your sleeves, and get baking! I’ll be here, rereading your blog post cause tonight, I need myself a chuckle! 🙂

    Ah,that is easy. Writing! After that it’s listening to music, which is tied with reading or buying books. I am kind of girlie, so I enjoy the mani/pedi get away.. Most, this it’s what I’ve listed, but the most favorite thing to do when I am not writing, reading, or listening to music, is watching movies. God help me, it’s a favorite thing to do. I don’t watch much TV, but I can spend a few hours watching movies. I do cook (stress release) but never baking. I am a savory cook. I do wish I could sit the other side of the counter sharing a glass of wine with you while you backed. That would be good. Love the Contessa’s meatball recipe. Probably not as good as your Dad’s, but it’s good.

    I never heard of that woman but I am going to watch her faithfully – she is HYSTERICAL and the perfect cooking show – Bitchin’ Kitchen – love it. Love you. Thank you for dragging me out of the boonies into the real world.
