VlogTalk: Homemade

posted in: Baking, Food, Vlogging 0 comments

The VlogTalk girls (Jessica, Elena and Kate) are so nice – this week’s prompts were so easy, there was no reason not to do one! (clever)

This week’s prompts:

1. Photo slideshow of anything you want (have fun with it – add transitions, words, music)

2. Date night with your significant other (this vlog can also be linked up with Project Marriage at Life Without Pink and MommyFriend)

3. Wildcard! You can do any past prompt you want – just be sure to tell us which one you are doing in your post. (Submitted by Patch of Blue)

I went with #1 as I’m having a lot of fun with slideshows (also, I don’t have to get dressed to get on camera).

    Mean, mean, mean! Especially since we have NO food in the house and will probably be eating cereal and Cheez-its for dinner.

    I think you should totally open a little cafe with those desserts. A cafe where mothers can tweet and eat yummy desserts the whole day.

    • July 20, 2011 Alison

      Yes, I cooked/ baked all these! Most of them are modified recipes 🙂

  • July 20, 2011 Elena

    Yum! I’d love to see your chicken curry recipe. I’ve never tried to make it at home and would love some tips!
    Elena recently wrote…Things You Can Only Do While On VacationMy Profile

    • July 20, 2011 Alison

      The thing is? I don’t use a recipe. I just chuck in a bunch of spices to make the curry then throw in whatever vegetables I have, along with the chicken. In this case, I had mushrooms 🙂

  • July 20, 2011 Mrs. Weber

    Those all look crazy good. How come I’ve never noticed you tweeting these magical foods? Oh, maybe because when you’re cooking, I’m sleeping??? Love the site re-design too!

    I am hungry now, thank you very much! Ok…so if you have any posts about all these yummy HOMEMADE things…please come by tomorrow & link up in my new What’s Cookin’ Wednesday meme! I would love to have you participate…I think a recipe for the sliders or cookies, or both 😉 would be great!

    • July 20, 2011 Alison

      Thank you Heather!

      I don’t actually have recipes? I more or less make it up as I go along 🙂 For the cookies, yes, I do, I have to dig for it. I might not be able to participate this week, I’ll try next week!

  • July 20, 2011 Heather

    P.S. love the new site!

      Thank you Galit! It was fun to make, this vlog.

  • July 21, 2011 Missy

    Awesome. Just, awesome. I love the music – it’s very inspirational, like maybe the food is all striving for something (like, perhaps, ending up in my belly?).

      Hahahaha! I’m glad the music succeeded in its purpose 🙂
