For those of you who live in Agawam, MA, be sure to check out my article that is being published in the AGAWAM ADVERTISER once each month. I am trying to coordinate the articles with my appearances on MASS APPEAL, but this is not always possible. I would love to hear your comments about my article and the best way to contact me is at my new e-mail address: AnnsTable@gmail.com.

Turning 60/Had a Facelift!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I am currently recovering from a facelift.  Yes I am crazy, but how many of you have had braces on your teeth to make you look better?  I must confess that my facelift was easy compared to the horror of braces.

Dr. William Truswell of Northampton performed the surgery yesterday.  And we will both be appearing on MASS APPEAL – TV 22 on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 where he will describe the surgery and you will see the results.  After dealing with my breast cancer from September through all of December, I almost cancelled this procedure, but then decided that life can be cut short at anytime…so I will take advantage of as many good things as possible.

Be sure to see my next cooking segment on MASS APPEAL on Wednesday, April 4th.  I am making a lovely one skillet fish dish that even fish haters will love.

Also, I have an extra surprise segment that is being taped for MASS APPEAL on April 11th, but I am not yet sure of the date it will air.  It  has nothing to do with food but you are sure to enjoy it.

Video Clips

Hurrah! My video clips are finally up and ready for you to view, so very sorry for the delay. Unfortunately, the TOMATO FRITATTA clip is over the 10 minute limit for YouTube therefore it was not posted. The clip on how to clean the springform pan is still a dilemma. One way or another, I will have it for you to view.

Thank you to all who came to the Storrs Library on February 3rd. As promised, the recipe for my Pink Peppermint Fudge is now posted under “Recipes” on this website. You can also find the recipe on page 127 of my cookbook.  A question was asked at the library about washing meat. Please note that yes, I do wash chicken prior to cooking. For some reason, my brain wasn’t thinking “chicken” only beef and pork, which I do not wash.  Another statement that I would like to revise is about white and brown eggs. The “tips” on the episode “ALL ABOUT BREAKFAST” states that brown hens lay brown eggs and white hens lay white eggs. I found that this is not totally correct. The color of the egg is determined by the color of the hen’s ear lobe. If a brown ear lobe, the hen will lay a brown egg and if the hen has a white ear lobe, it will lay a white egg.
