Gnocchi with Stewed Tomatoes

In this video, I attempt some potato gnocchi with stewed tomatoes. Underline attempt. A few times.

After eating a few of my fries or latkes or whatever my not-gnocchi were, I went to Mom's house for dinner. And forgot to ask for a masher.

Soon to come: Vegan cookies for my hippie brother.

Steak, Brussel Sprouts, and Potatoes

Hi, I'm Jenny. And I cannot cook. Yet.

I'm an absolute addict when it comes to cooking shows. Food Network, Top Chef, No Reservations... if someone's cooking, I'm watching. But I had never tried to cook anything (though I am a wiz at scrambling an egg.)

So for my first adventure, I tried cooking a steak for the first time, with a side of brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. Here we go.

((PS - Just so you know, there was about an hour of footage before I got this down to the ten minute Youtube limit. Thank god for that limit, or this video would have been painful to watch.))
