Project Food Blog Video 411

As I sit here at my computer screen anticipating my Project Food Blog video post, I can’t help but wonder, “What do I write? Do I just show the video? Do I hide under my desk with a basket full of Christmas Blondies listening to Bing Crosby?”

[Trust me, I have to hide these from my husband…]

I ponder these deep thoughts as I stare at the screen before me. I sip some celebratory Merlot because 8 long nights of video editing sucked the life out of me and I need to feel blood pumping through my veins again. Before I know it, my cheeks have a lovely red glow to them perfect for the holiday season.

And then, like a bolt of lightning from the Baking Gods above, it hits me plain and simple.

I love this.

I love the recipe creation, the baking, the photography, and the taste-testing (wink, wink). Even baking disasters have their value. For example, this morning, I learned that one should never pour boiling water into Arrowroot powder (try it, I dare you…).

The only thing I love doing more than these things, is having the privilege to share my passion with you. I feel extremely lucky to be able to do what I do everyday. This blog right here is the part that leaves me running from my kitchen to my desk, typing away furiously with excitement and a dorky grin.

I don’t take myself or my food too seriously and my hope is that you will walk away from this video excited to create magic in your own kitchen. All of the recipes are a cinch to whip up and even the most fearful baker can have recipe success.

Laugh at yourself, forgive your baking flops, and most of all, take some time for yourself this holiday season.

My goal was to create unique and easy Blondie recipes that would also be easy on the budget during an otherwise expensive time of the year. The Blondie In A Jar gifts cost under $3 to make!

post4

All you have to do is print out the recipe cards, attach them to your filled jars, and then ship them to my address to your friends and family or give them as a hostess gift.

[Please note that butter can be substituted for vegan butter spread (this is also indicated on the recipe card).]

Now go and get your holiday bake on!

Just be sure to save us some.

Angela…omg this is amazing!! First, hearing your voice and seeing you and all your wonderful goodies…if a picture is worth a million words, a video is worth 10 million!

Love it!

The food looks beyond amazing…and you really need to sell this stuff. Oh wait, you do :)

Oh and I love how it’s budget friendly. It’s nice to see recipes that use REAL ingredients that dont’ cost a fortune and that arent hard to source and get a hold of. Raw cocao powder from the amazon rainforest is nice, just not super practical for us mere mortals. LOL

Great job, Angela!!!

:)

67 Aly November 14, 2010

WOW! This was AWESOME!! You look like a natural at this! Now I am totally inspired to make these in a jar with my 8-year old daughter. She loves to cook and these would make great gifts for her teachers. However, I am not sure how the recipient would make them. Do you just dump the contents in a bowl and add the flax egg. The brown sugar has to be creamed, right? I love, love, love the idea of this but I don’t see how the jar gift will work. Can you explain how you see this working? Thanks!!

Reply

68 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 15, 2010

Oh, thanks for reminding me!
There are actually two sets of directions- one if you are making them at home, and two if you are baking them from the jar gift. I have updated the PDF to reflect this…check it out now and let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Reply

75 Laura November 14, 2010

Omg, how cute is Eric: “Thanks for tuning in!” Love it. These look fabulous :) My only question is do you know (and you might not) how to un-veganize them? I know my friends (who I’d like to give these to) don’t have Earth Balance or flax so just wondering if you know what the exchanges for real butter (bc I’ve heard it differs than EB) and eggs would be?

Thanks and great job! Definitely will be voting :)

Reply

76 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 14, 2010

Im thinking you might be able to swap the flax eggs for real eggs and swap the earth balance for butter (1:1 ratio). :) I’m not 100% sure though as I have not tested it out.

Reply

77 Rhonda November 15, 2010

I have made the delicious Strawberry Bars with butter and egg. I used 1:1 on the egg but cut the butter to 1/2 cup from 1/2 cup + 2 TBSP of EB (I think that was what the recipe called for). I have made them with an egg and a chia egg and the result was about the same – great of course!!

78 Amanda (Sweet and Savory Vegan) November 14, 2010

I kind of forgot you live in Canada so I wasn’t expecting your Canadian accent – ha. Super cute though :)

I have voted for you from the very start of PFB, and will continue to vote for you as long as you’re in it. You are such an inspiration and have such a fun blog voice.

Flax eggs replace regular eggs in many recipes in vegan baking. You mix 1 tbsp ground flax with 3 tbsp water and let it sit for 10 minutes. It will gel up and get very thick much like the consistency of an egg :)

I had been searching for a while for a vegan alternative and wasn’t having much luck. Now I can enjoy blondies with less the guilt :)

I can’t wait to give this a try!

Reply

236 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 15, 2010

For the gift in a jar- you actually do not keep the ingredients separate at all- if you note on the PDF- you will find two different sets of directions for each flavour. One for the ‘jar’ and one for if you are just making them at home (which I showed in the video step by step) Otherwise you simply dump the jar ingredients into a bowl and add the wet.

You always continue to amaze me. Your entries are by far more ambitious and the most professional of the bunch.

You had me at peppermint. But I want to try ALL the flavors. Off to vote.

You are the CUTEST thing EVER. Holy cow. This video is so sweet it makes my teeth hurt and it has nothing to do with the peppermint. Or was it peppernut? :)

261 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 15, 2010

peppernut ;)

Too adorable! I loved the video and can’t wait to make up some jars with my sons for their teachers’ Christmas gifts. Thanks for another fabulous idea!

You got my vote girl (as usual). Super cute video, hysterical outtakes, and the recipes look declicious. I’d love to see you get a cooking show and finally fill the void for a vegan chef, seeing as there’s not even a vegetarian chef outside of PBS in the States! You are so likeable and creative and your passion and positivety always make my day. Thanks! (PS- Go Flyers!)

I loved this! It was really fun to watch. I thought it might be fun to just attach at candy cane to the jar then the recipient can crush it and put it on top of the blondies. I can’t wait to try this recipe! Great stuff Angela!

Hi Angela, I was just wondering… what is the name of the song playing in the background during the mixing/slicing of the blondies? It reminds me of my favorite yoga classes in college!!! I am pretty sure the instructor played the exact song. :)

P.S. You are definitely going to win this contest!!! I know it. ;)

Awesome post! I don’t know what I expected your voices (I know Eric barely said anything but still) to sound like, but this wasn’t it – but not in a bad way! lol. It’s kinda strange to read someone’s writing for months on end and then get a glimpse of them as a real, 3D person ;) Great job with the editing, also, it was fun to watch and the outtakes were hilarious!

291 Sarah November 15, 2010

Angela, quick question. In your video you say to use 3 flax eggs, but your recipes above use only 6 tbsp of water instead of the 9 tbsp I would have expected. Are you purposely trying to make super-gelled ‘eggs’, or is that a misprint?

Thanks for the recipes, the peppermint walnut crunch blondies look so wonderfully festive!

Reply

292 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 16, 2010

6 tbsp is the correct amount of water :)
