Vote for Chrissy TOO
November 22, 2010
Its time again to place you vote (EVERY SINGLE DAY…3 times a day if you vote from work, home and a fancy cell phone) for my friend Chrissy. She has made it to the top 20 of the contest, and now the second part of the contest has begun. Don’t know who this fabulous gal is? Look below and you’ll get a 90 second snippet into just what she is all about.
Still on the fence? Well if you tune in to my kitchen escapades on a semi regular basis, and enjoy what you see then you owe a swift click (in the way of a vote) to Chrissy. Aside from being one of my dearest friends and roommates all through out college, and trust me I’m not easy to live with, Chrissy was a super supportive friend when I first started baking as more than just a hobby. Once upon time she sent me a lovely little birthday care package with a lovely cupcake cook book that turn my baking reperatoire on its head. Needing a place to catalog all my ideas, Chrissy was the one to scream from the roof tops that I needed a blog, just like her.
So here is one more Apple inspired recipe. Apple Carrot Dumplings. But before you go rearranging your Thanksgiving menu, I should state these are for four legged dinner guest. After all as you’ve seen a vote for Chrissy is a vote for Puppies, Cookies, and Love.
Apple Carrot Dumplings From Baking For Your Dog by Ingebrog Pils
5 oz spelt flour
5 oz coarse rolled oats
3 tbsp molasses
water and flour as reqired
Finely grate apple and carrot. I peeled the apple with my peeler and then threw both the skins and the apple into the bowl. Combine with other ingredients. If necessary add water and/ or flour to get a smooth texture.
I found I didn’t need any water or flour and just mixed and mashed with my hands.
Preheat over to 350 F degrees, and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using a Tablespoon scoop dumplings and place on sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, then turn off oven and allow dumplings to dry inside as heat reduces. Store in a paper or linen bag. Dumplings keep for approximately 3 weeks.
So heres the deal: I promised if she got in the top twenty that I’d do a little give give give away. Heres what I have to offer:
Wilton Ruffled Cupcake Liners
Rose Piping Kit
Duff’s Cake Tattoos
So comment everyday after you vote and get a couple of friends to vote too!! (just comment so I can see). The first 4 will get the goods. VOTE here!!!
Also to come a lovely give away of Cake Eccentric Eccentrique Chic Aprons!!!
