I Think Therefore I Am… a Winner of a Blogging Award!

I want to thank Nessa (pictured below) for naming me as a recipient of the Thinking Blogger Award! She gave me this award a while ago, but I am just now getting around to making the announcement. You guys know how modest I am. Part of this great honor is that I must now give this award to five other blogs. It was almost impossible to choose only five from all the great blogs I visit and link to. But, after careful thought, and several coin-flips, I hereby bestow this Thinking Blogger Award to the following blogs:


Congratulations, and now you have to choose 5 winners.
Good luck with that!

Quick Personal Update:
My Mom’s surgery went well, and she sends along her thanks to all the well wishers and Key Lime commentators. I will be returning to San Francisco on July 26th and getting back to regular production. Finally, no I haven’t had a Garbage Plate yet, but will. I’ve been trying to get a hold of a portable defibrillator before I dig in.

Thanks Chef John for naming me in the "thinking Blogger Awards". There are so many of us out there, it is an honor to be chosen. Now the tough part for me will be choosing 5, there are so many terrific food blogs, narrowing it down to 5 will be tough.
Thanks again

You are welcome. How could I not choose a fellow Italian/Russian/Polish Foodie Blogger?? I think I already told you, but my mother-in-law is convinced we are somehow related. Good luck with your picks...and you are right is sooooo hard to pick just five. I love so many of the sites I have linked on my site.

Totally, TOTALLY, off-topic here, but Chef John, do you have a good recipe for French toast online anywhere?

I love good restaurant french toast, but when I make it at home, it comes out to "eggy". I'm not really sure what to do to fix it.

Can you help?

hey chef john..i am recently 'addicted' to the crunchy top of the muffin sold in my campus area..do u know how to have that crunchy top?! a lot of muffin i saw don't have that vevry crunchy top..thanks and keep making the vdos..
cheers!

Chef John said...

jewels, I have been planning a french toast clip for a while. The best way is to used an egg and cream mix instead of just eggs. Also, they should be finished in the oven. Stay tuned!

emma, the only way I know is to top the muffin batter with a crumble topping before it bakes. This is usually sugar, butter and flour and sometimes nuts. The caramelized sugar is what gives the crunch. Ask the baker for the recipe! (then tell us)
