Today I Pickled, Tomorrow I’ll Take Over The World!

I can’t think of a time when I’ve had more fun in my own kitchen than I did today! As a part of my job as social media specialist for Spoiled To Perfection, I got to shoot a short video of me, attempting to pickle onions in my kitchen. Oh and was it an attempt alright. I’m not big on following recipes, which is probably why I’m horrible at baking, but make killer Mexican food. IMG_0723 2

I followed the basic pickling principles, (vinegar, water, salt, sugar) but added my own twist (mustard seed, cumin seed, peppercorns, jalepenos). Measurements, shmeasurements.

I must have found the two most powerful, evil, purple onions in the entire grocery store because I could barely see! I was bawling on camera and even my videographer had to leave the room! I still have a headache from it. Damn you, food alchemy!

Aside from my burning eyeballs and a house that now smells like feet, I feel proud and accomplished! My “non-recipe” recipe came out perfectly and we really shot some beautiful video and stills. I must give all the credit to my videographer, Jenny Rustad, who makes all the silly things I do look good.

My new blog, Spoiled In Sonoma, is shaping up quite nicely and I’m having a blast! I can’t believe I get paid for this.
