Why I Haven’t Quit My Day Job

Here’s a quick bonus post today.  It occurred to me yesterday that maybe a lot of readers want to make the food I’ve been posting, but have never cooked and are afraid to try.  So I figured it might be helpful if I posted some basic cooking tips to get them started.  Since I had to use an onion in last night’s avocado-orange salsa, I tried to use it to demonstrate a way to dice vegetables quickly and evenly.  The demo didn’t turn out so well thanks to a slippery onion, but it’s too good to throw away.  I don’t think I could do this again if I tried.

    hahahah! that thing shoots off like a bat outta hella!

    I wanted to let you know that since you showed me this trick I always cut my onions like this. But instead of throwing out the butt end, I keep a ziploc in the fridge of all sorts of scraps for vegetable-stock day.

  2. That was funny! I rewound the last few seconds about 5 times and by the fifth time I was laughing out loud! I think you would be great on a LIVE cooking show!

  3. Best thing I have seen all day!

    I’m guessing that over the years Rachel and Bobby have shot a few onions across the kitchen…. 😉
    And no matter how “botched” this attempt is, it’s still more graceful than my onion massacres!

  5. Ha ha ha! That’s great! Saving the butts for stock day is a good option, but I usually just toss them into the compost pile outside.

    As for chopping onions, we actually have a kitchen “gadget” – I’m not much of one but this one we use since you just chop the vegetables into chunks, press it through the gadget, and you get some nice chopped up veggies.

    Gotta admit, I’ve never sent an onion across the kitchen that way…
