Vatican Assassin Warlock (I’m Winning!)

March 13, 2012

A few weeks ago I was reading Feed. Feed is the blog for America’s Test Kitchen. It’s a great resource and supplement to working in the kitchen. To my delight, they announced they were giving away 5 scholarships to their new online cooking school- to food bloggers! Well you can imagine how exciting this was for me!  Naturally I wanted it- Lord knows I need it! I entered my blog, and was fortunate enough to be chosen! I’m so excited to be a part of this.  As you guys know I’m a new cook-  this is going to help me immensely on so many levels and in so many recipes!

Here’s how it works:  I was chosen to focus on the lessons about making pies, specifically apple pies. I will follow the lessons on making pie and write a blog post about it that will be featured on Feed this summer. (Apple pie in the summer! How perfect!) Until then, I’m going to be exploring the cooking school and learning as much as I can! How cool is this? My intention is to post about the cooking school here on my own blog once a week. I’ll share with you whatever lesson it is that I’m working on at that time, it may or may not be about pies, you never know! I will post photos and maybe even videos of myself  “in class”.

Today we had our first conference call between my fellow winning bloggers and Bridget, Amy, Steph and other folks from America’s Test Kitchen. What a nice group of food lovers! And I am already learning!! I have found out that my latest obsession  can be improved . Stay tuned friends! Things are about to get seriously delicious up in here! I’m Winning!

    Good for you! And making pies is a perfect assignment for you. Looking forward to your insights on pie crust b/c it’s such a pain.

    I can’t wait to find out how to make the perfect crust. I have always used pre-made crust because of my fear of crust-making
