Emeril Has Spicy Nuts
So! Yesterday I was bored. Actually, I was really, incredibly, mind-numbingly bored, so I decided to play around with the content on my side bar. This is exciting, no?
First of all (even though it’s lower than the other change), notice the banner over there that says that I’m participating in NaBloPoMo, or National Blog Posting Month. This means that I’ll be posting every day in November, even the weekends. If you click on that banner, it will take you to the official NaBloPoMo site, which gives the complete details, as well as a list of all NaBloPoMo participants. Should be fun! It will at least be a lot of new blog posts to read next month.
Secondly, I took down my Obsessions/Pet Peeves links. Really, this was for two reasons; one, I never update them, and two, no one really clicked on them anyway. I decided to replace those with a new section, “Recipes of the Month”. These are the recipes that are currently rocking my world. Actually, the recipes up there have been rocking my world for a while now, but they’re among my favorites, so I thought I’d share. I’ll try and update this section every month with new recipes for you to enjoy.
I actually have a somewhat funny story related to one of the recipes. The recipe for Puff Pastry Cheese Twists is from Emeril’s show. The episode on which these appeared had a lot of other great appetizer recipes (they’re linked to on the bottom of the page that the link takes you to), including Emeril’s Spiced Nuts. *giggle*
Now, when we watched this episode it was still early in the morning. So early, in fact, that we were apparently 12 year olds, because this was some hilarious television. We started giggling when he said the name of the recipe. We started laughing when he said “Now, I like my nuts spicy.” We almost fell out of bed laughing when he said something to the effect of, “Mmmmm…now those are some spicy nuts. Those nuts are so good! I love my spicy nuts!”
Seriously? That right there, is hilarious television.
Almost as good as the “olive oil money shots” from Wolfgang Puck’s show. You know, when they would slow down the shot right when he was drizzling olive oil over something, and accompany the shot with some soft-porn-type music?
Now that’s entertainment.
