RESTAURANT STORE (muwhahahaha!)

Today was my first FULL work day and I flippin' loved it. And guess what else? Tim came home for lunch. Bonus points all around.

Over the weekend, Tim helped me clean out the fridge and I'm happy to report that the kitchen/lab is working - or at least will work until spring when we you know what happens ....

Knock the flippin' cupboards OUT!

Those interested in seeing my new toy (from the restaurant store), and my temporary baker's rack solution, click the video below.

And that my little blueberries, is all that's fit to print.

I'M STUCK IN LIMBO

Even after decluttering to the tune of 95 percent, I'm still stuck in limbo when it comes to my lab aka, kitchen. But once we demo the cupboards, I'll be able to make my industrial work space with major focus on shooting videos. Lots and lots and LOTS of videos.  But until then, limbo it is.

If you want to see my hot mess, check the vlog below.

In other news, we have a 3-day weekend coming up and I REALLY, REALLY want to be well enough to go to the restaurant store.

Fingers and nut sacks crossed.

MY KITCHEN MAKES ME NUTS

So ... my kitchen is all moved around again. The baker's rack which I use as a filming bench, is sorta working and sorta not. I still don't have a home for my cookery and bake books. BUT .... none of this (including being sick), has stopped me from shooting video.

Which I flippin' love doing. 

I gotta get my face in front of the camera, if I want my channel to keep growing. Having a face, helps. But I'm still too chicken shit.

Meanwhile, check it out. Air-fry potatoes for breakfast. No oil. No preheat. Look at that golden colour. Want to know my secret? It's turmeric. Oh my yum!

Video below. 

And now ... I'm gonna make a cuppa and get back to tinkering in the lab. I think if I move the spices, that might help. 

Oy.

NO WORDPRESS FOR ME (much thanks!)

Hello Booggerbutts!

Much Thanks for your help the other day with blogger vs wordpress. Even with my hosting package (which I think we're dropping), it doesn't sound like WP is for me. On about a million levels. Thanks bunches for the help.

In other news, it's Sunday here. I'm still sick. It's our last day off and ... I made MY FIRST longer, how-to video. Check it out if you have time. The views, comments, likes, subs and shares help rank me as a YouTuber and are much appreciated.

Thanks again for the help the other day.
Catch you guys during the week!

How-To Make Sweet Potato Wraps & Tortillas


Thursday, January 04, 2018

FQ: Have you ever changed your blog?

When I'm sick, I'm also moody about food. Can't taste so I go for texture. Enter, the sweet potato. I love them. Even sick, I love them. Click FULL VIDEO, to see how they baked in the air fryer.

In other news, I'm ready to make a new blog. I might try WordPress. Not for sure yet. Right now, this blog feels cluttered crowded and I want room.

Lots and lots of room.

Plus, I no longer like how the comments are setup here. Though, I might be able to change that before moving to a new place. Either way, that's where I'm at.

Friday Question: Have you ever changed Blogger templates? Or have you moved to a new blog format? Anyone like Wordpress? What comment form works best for you? Any and all feedback is welcome.

Thanks Bunches & Boogie Boogie!

ON THE BENCH (being sick, sucks!)

At 3AM on Christmas morning, our furnace died. The trailer was so cold that the inside of the fridge was warmer than the kitchen. Furnace got fixed on the 26th for just under 200 bucks. I was happy with that price and thankful we didn't need to buy a new furnance.

Right now, we have 2 days of staycation, left. Tim was supper sick during the first part, then I caught it. He's moving about now, I'm still on the bench. Currently shopping online for a new wavy waffle cutter. Deciding between white or orange. My head is stuffed up and I've blown through 1,004 tissues.

Ugh.

NO OIL, AIR FRY POTATO BITES (with video)

Look at these POTATOES!!! I love this machine. I mean, the basket is slightly chipping BUT, the bakes are killer fun. Last night, I made pear crumble pie in the air-fry. But today, it's more POTATOES for breakfast.

After that: find a new home for my cookery and bake books. Right now, they're in a pile on the bedroom floor, and on the top shelf in the closet (wardrobe). I moved my books when I gave Tim my shelf for his office. But today, I've got a big old fire under my butt so I'm gonna find them a proper home.

PS: New video at the end of this post!

AIR FRY "BAKED" JACKET POTATO (plus Friday Question)


I'm on a potato roll but there are a zillion other veggies that work in the air fryer, as well. So fun! By the way, her name is Mable and I love her. Also, I'm on the hunt for a waffle knife for waffle fries.

Muwhahahaha!

PS: This first video is comin'atcha live from my phone. That's all from me. I'm done with work for the day and I'm about to go make a Jersey plate of fries.

Friday Question: Do you like potatoes and if so, what kind? Are you able to eat them deep-fried? I cannot. Hurts my tummy.

BAKER'S RACK (I'm THIS close!)

Hey Boogerbutts! It's Thursday and I made a video of my new baker's rack. The red wall behind it will get painted white. I'm this close.

THIS CLOSE.

BLOOMIN' HEADACHE



In better news, two kitchen shelves arrive soon. All of the decluttering, demo work and building of new rooms was driven by having a permanent place to shoot real videos for me to share recipes. It's been a long haul with plenty of setbacks.

For anyone who declutters and feels like it's a big job that takes forever. To anyone who gets discouraged over starts and stops. I promise you, the end-result is worth it.

Keep going.

Keep going.

Keep going.

Keep going.

144 SUBS & NEW LAB (hot dog!)

Hey Guys! Guess what? We ordered my new kitchen/lab which means overhead videos and a HUGE toy shelf for my baking stuff. Best part, we paid for the entire lot from change that we saved during the year.

PS: Videos & groovy links, below.

RENO UPDATE (almost done)

Hello Boogerbutts. It's day 5 of our staycation (whoosh). The video below is where we left off last night.  Today, a wee bit more and then TIM MOVES INTO HIS NEW ROOM.

To think, this started last year, when I wanted a home for a white box. So I decluttered.  And now ... a new room.

Been a LONG HAUL. Lots of setbacks but totally flippin' worth it.

I give you, the new floor. Along with Grandpa's fried spaghetti.

Thanks for watching and boogie boogie.

10-DAY STAYCATION (count'em 10 days!)


FRIDAY QUESTION: WHAT AM I ????

Hello Boogerbutts and welcome to another Friday Question. I learned how to convert HD to SD video, which makes a big file, smaller and easier to upload native to Blogger. Hot dog. I'm learning.

TIM'S HALLOWEEN GIFT 🎃

Hello Boogerbutts! Here's a video of what I'm giving Tim for Halloween, along with a shameless plug at the end for my latest youtube clip. Wishing you all the BEST OOGIE BOOGIE DAY! Muwhahahaha!

PS: Our 4-day Halloween weekend was killer fun. We unplugged for most of it, ate homemade pretzels and watched the entire second series of STRANGER THINGS.

RAISE YOUR HAND IF ...

Hello Boogerbutts!

I'm done working on videos for the week, Tim has four days off and I'm about to make a fresh batch of homemade laundry soap. Then after this, we're headed to the co-op to get a few things including more white spelt for PRETZELS !!!!

Yeah, baby.



Friday, October 20, 2017

Friday Question: PRETZELS !!!!



With the immune system stuff, I don't get to eat out often and it's been YEARS since I ate a pretzel. But we recently hit a pretzel shoppe and the ladies at Auntie's made mine without butter and it was SO GOOD.

Friday Question:

Do you like pretzels? Do you use dipping sauces, mustard or plain? I like mine plain or with a wee bit of yellow mustard.

Video of us: PRETZEL TIME!

Hey Boogerbutts (please help)

This morning, I made a video for my friend Holly, and now I'm sharing it with you, because I need a wee bit more help.

PS: Click the YouTube logo to teleport directly to my channel.

PPS: Double click to teleport directly to my kitchen, where there's fresh bagels and blueberry lemon mini muffins.

Off Blogger (see ya'll soon)

It's Monday and my goal is to clean the house top to bottom but first, lemme show you what I wrote. Double Chocolate and Cherry Vanilla. So flippin' yum. Recipes to hit a video screen near you, soon-ish. As in, soonish as I stop being a chicken shit and get my mug in front of the camera.

PS: I'm off Blogger for the season, but NOT for health reasons so bonus points for that. Catch some of you on email, G+ and Twitter.

WOOHOO FOR THE POO !!!!

Last Thursday I was able to sit without pain and that night, I passed kidney stones. Thank goodness, those little buggers are gone. As for the intestinal blockage, that had already fixed (no surgery), and I'm back to pooping lots per day. Woohoo for the poo.

I'm about to rip apart my lab/kitchen. As it currently stands, most of my ingredients are in jars and my lab stuff is mixed with our home stuff. The goal: Part the two and make my kitchen Hubby-Friendly and my lab, Me-Friendly.

That's all for now. Gonna crank the tunes and boogie my way through.

WOOHOO FOR THE POO !!!!

Intestinal Blockage (not fun)

I finally got my immune system to where it can tolerate going to the movies. But did I get to see Wonder Woman?

Nope.

Instead, I was diagnosed with intestinal blockage aka, bowel obstruction. Not fun and quite painful. For now, I can't eat or sit and won't be on social media.

But as soon as I get back, it's straight to more videos. YouTube tells me once I hit 100 subs, I'm allowed to apply for a custom URL. If interested in food, please subscribe to The Happy Whisk.

Thanks and I'll see you SOON.

My New YouTube Channel

I started a YouTube channel. Today, I learned that holding my camera the way I did, makes the video long and tall. But when Tim shot his Zombie Crawl side-ways, his came out widescreen. Now I know. Cool beans.

In other news, allergy-wise, I did good at the second-hand estate store. Just a small rash. Zero breathing problems. I'll take it.

Early Friday Question: What movie will I see during our staycation? Rabbit turds and wad of earwax to all who get it right.

PS: Videos below go to my new channel.
PPS: Wait. I lied. They don't link.

SHOOTIN' OFF MY MOUTH

A big Thank You to my friend Alex for hosting me on his blog today. I almost chickened out. BUT, once I got out of my own way, I had a great time. You rock.

Guess what? We survived our first weekend with a bedtime. I love it. No, no. I lied. I flippin' love it. And, if it's possible, I have more energy now than I did before. Who knew? Not me.

Remember last week when I was shootin' off my mouth, saying that I'd be done mudding walls by Friday and painting by today?

Lies. All lies.

Friday, May 19, 2017

Friday Question & What Am I?

This past week we started a 10 PM bedtime. The first night I struggled with it but the second night I had to pull Tim in. I like that we're doing this together. Tonight will be our first weekend. Feels odd to have a bedtime on the weekend but I'm enjoying the calmness. Plus, I get back to baking in the early mornings.

What's not to love about that?

Friday Question: Do you have a bedtime? Does it change during the weekend?

Now for the bonus round ...

Tell us what this is and win three boogers, a dead mouse and a broken chair.

GET THIS F**CKER FINISHED

I just crawled out of the coffin and now I'm at my desk. I didn't brush my teeth or pee, which I think borders on TMI.

Today's goal: Apply a second coat of mud to the walls (Tim's new office). Let compound dry. Do a third coat on Friday. Prime next week. Paint. Install new floor.

Time to get this fucker finished.

In other news, I'm learning Twitter. Anyone on there? What do you like or dislike about it? I'm interested to hear your views.


Monday, May 15, 2017

Happy Much? (you betcha)

I finished round one of sanding the walls in Tim's new office and had zero breathing problems.

Up next, I go to the movie house once a year as a tester for my immune system/allergy to corn. Even the smell would rash me out and/or cause breathing issues.

Well guess flippin' what? Small rash, slightly pooped but ZERO breathing issues. Happy much? You betcha.

Lastly, I dropped the sorghum flour from my egg-free Cinnamon French Toast and it worked better in terms of taste and coating. Turns out, I don't need no stinkin' eggs for French Toast.

Yeah, baby. Life is good.

Friday Question: FOOD

Before I got sick, I lived on whole foods. Then a chance to attend cookery school arrived, so I ate meat, dairy and eggs. But I never went to school. I got sick. This included intestinal parasites, edema, horrible infections and an immune system gone whack-a-do.

Even though having an excellent outlook, plant roots and being a recipe developer made giving foods up easier, I struggled with chicken. I liked it. It hated me. It was the last to go. At the time, I wasn't happy.

Friday Question:

What foods would you NOT want to give up?
