What a week! It was pretty jam packed between a cooking class, three lives, and an amazing birthday party. It was good to be back in the swing of things.
Don't forget to stop by our Warehouse for all of your Food Nanny needs. And we are so excited that our new Kamut Pick Up locations should be up and running this week! We will keep you updated.
We started off the week with an unbelievable birthday lunch. On Monday, we were invited to attend a lunch hosted by Traeger for Kristin Andrus and Shannon from cleaneats_clean treats. We were amazed at all the wonderful and talented women there. It was such a privelege just being invited! And you can't have a birthday party with a bunch of foodies without delicious food!
Then on Tuesday, we had our first live of the week. And it was a good one! We were so lucky to have Kristen from @buonaforchettaut cooking with us. She made her amazing gnocchi and shared with us some of her tips and tricks. She makes Italian food just about every night! Kristen used Kamut this time, and it turned out perfectly. We aren't lying to you, it really does make everything better!
It was a blast cooking along side Kristen, but also amazing sharing part of her story. She has struggled with Epilepsy and eventually depression as a result. Through the hard days, she turned to cooking and bonding with her family. Kristen truly is an inspiration to us all.
Next, for Wednesdays live, we decided to sit down and just talk with you guys! When we skip a couple lives, we start to miss our fannies. Food Nanny Sr. talked all about her amazing travels around the world. She spent time in Thailand, India, and France over the last month. We will go into more detail in a later post, but it was a blast reading about things she loves, things she ate, and things she purchased.
One of our favorite purchases from traveling has to be our copper pots! This is something that can be passed on to future generations and definitely worth the investment. We found some for you at a killer price! It comes in both a 3 Liter and 4 Liter size. We have the 4 liter and love it, but the 3 Liter is great as well. The 3 Liter size is actually supposed to be a thicker copper!
You can find more incredible copper pots, but you will pay for it! And if you decide to go too cheap, it simply will not last. This really is a killer deal! Think of it as kitchen art, and something your family will enjoy long after you are gone.
Then, this week was make extra special with a third live! We just wanted to make up for missing the week before. For our final live of the week, we decided to show you how to make our Dippy Eggs and French Baguettes.
In fact, we have decided to make the dippy eggs for Easter breakfast! They are easy, but so fun and healthy for the whole family. Kids love the idea of dipping with the toast, and adults can't get enough of the flavor. So start a new tradition, and enjoy this on Easter morning with us!
And if you have been a follower of ours for a while, you know about our French Baguettes. We make them all the time because they are just that good! They taste amazing, and take less than an hour start to finish. You won't find bread that is this easy and delicious anywhere else! And the best part? It goes with just about anything! The baguettes work on sandwiches, or on the side of a salad. We even love serving it on Italian night.
To conclude, we finished off our crazy week with another amazing class at Orson Gygi. It was so much fun getting to cook right along those of you that were there! If you live near us, make sure and catch one of our upcoming classes.
