Erin Cooks the Internet: July 15, 2008

July 15, 2008

I can’t even begin to count the number of times I took Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs out of my local library. Yes, even way back then I was obsessed with images of food, and perhaps a closet glutton. Needless to say the combination of a favorite childhood story mixed with 3-D technology means […]

Isabella and the Pot of Basil

July 14, 2008

Like Sarah Jessica Parker’s cringe-worthy character, Meredith, in The Family Stone, please allow me to fly my “freak flag” for a moment: Recently my friend Anna took me out on a post birthday date to the MFA followed by tapas and sangria at Tapeo.

And they’re green to boot, although I’m quite sure that real aliens probably don’t taste like pistachios. Using these Rocket Pop molds really made me wish […]

Root Beer Float Pops

July 3, 2008

My first batch of Root Beer Float pops bubbled up and created a sticky lava flow all over the frozen broccoli and chicken breasts in my freezer. So you’d think that the second time I made them I’d manage to not repeat the same mistake twice, right? Well, what do you suppose I did two […]

Popsicle Technical Difficulties

July 2, 2008

Contrary to popular belief not everything in my kitchen comes out camera ready. In fact, more often than I’d like to admit some dishes come out looking like this. A warning to you all: if the popsicle box instructions state that you should leave a half inch of room at the top of the mold […]
