matt's bites


ok, we know we need to blog more, and learning to juggle work and play and the blog all together has been a great learning experience. we love the outlet of the blog, and are ready to roll and start posting as much as we can! what better way to start than cooking from a wonderful new book from a blog friend Matt Armendariz. carrie and i are suckers for food on a stick and lovers of matt's blog, matt bites, so what better way to get our creative juices flowing for our blog than to cook, shoot and more importantly eat something from matt's new book, on a stick!...we love the concept and for as approachable as it is, i'm sure we will be cooking from it all the time. pictured above are the wonderful corndogs. we made mini corndogs using the same recipe and they turned out great. we also made a twist on a dipping sauce by using 3 parts ketchup to 1 part sriracha, a nice and spicy way we like to zip up our ketchup. we also can't wait to try the deep fried mac and cheese or the chicken and waffles, just to name a few. so go out and get this book, and make some food on a stick!

its fun to let you know, finally, that we have been a part of the beginnings of gilts new website, gilt taste. so fun to be able to work with the talented paige hicks and adrienne anderson. we think this site has potential for big things.

some other little updates...I just spent 7 great days up at martha stewart's house in bedford shooting a project i cant wait to share with all of you. lots of shots with some amazingly talented people. also carrie and i just did a shoot for food network mag that will be out in september, can't wait to share as it is always fun for us to work together.

we have lots of great recipes and photos coming in the weeks ahead, so check in with us and see what we have been up to.

thanks

Such a lovely rendition of Matt's recipe. Isn't a book about food on a stick the coolest idea ever!

Hey Andy Purcell! It's Meagan Smith (now Brezette) from Ebay:-) I am a food fanatic and fan of all the food blogs (especially ones all things sweet) and I stumbled upon your blog awhile back and enjoy you and your wife's posts, updates and recipes! Looks like you have an amazing life. I live in Texas with my hubby and two boys (2 and 3) and am known to bake quite a bit. Cooking is totally my passion. Look forward to more of your blog. Maybe our paths will cross at the royal hawaiin or javiers one of these holidays. best of luck!

You probably have no idea how much I'm grinning right now, nor can you tell how completely touched I am. So I will tell you.... THANK YOU GUYS! To be included here is the best thing ever! Honored actually! And seeing the recipe photographed? OH HOLY COW! Brilliant. I'm speechless! And I absolutely can't wait to see the MS spread, you've become the very first thing I do when I get my magazine or ipad version as I scan for the photo credits! You two are amazing. I hope we all can meet someday. Now I'm going to make a sriracha ketchup, that is brilliant. Brilliant I tell ya!

The great work continues! And I'm so excited to hear your involvement with Gilt Taste. Everything about the website is done with excellence, and now I know the reason behind the excellent photography.

Love the ketchup idea! But then again I'm a sucker for anything with Sriracha :)

Really great blog. My friends referred me your site. Looks like everyone knows about it. I'm going to read your other posts. Take care. Keep sharing.

Wow your photos are so beautiful! I wonder whether you have to wait till natural light floods your kitchen to take these photos or if you have another light source? The weather is so awful here in the UK, you can't get enough light for such a beautiful, natural shot. I've put you on my blog roll! x
