Greetings ChipWINners!  Welcome to Chip Mom’s Kitchen, which this week has the honor of being The ChipWIN Blog’s 500th publication!

Chip Mom’s Epic Fails #1: The Day That Frosty Died

Posted by

I have this wonderful book at home, Cooking for Kings: The Life of Antonin Careme.  Antonin was a pastry chef (and so much more) during the era of First Empire Paris.  He crafted room-sized sculptures from pastries and spun sugar to delight the likes of Marie Antoinette.  He’s the guy that the phrase creme de la creme was modeled on. He was the first Celebrity Chef.

If Antonin Careme saw what I wrought in my kitchen this past week, he would cry.

There is only one Antonin Careme, and, while I love to putter in my kitchen, I will never be him.  I mess up… A LOT.  Here is one such story.  This is the Day That Frosty Died.

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #20: The Grand Experiment

Posted by

I’m going to level with you here: sometimes when I step into my kitchen I only have the vaguest plan of what’s about to go down. Sometimes I’m a rebel and shop without a list, items flying off the shelf as they call to me. And that’s ok! On those days we call forth the powers of both chemistry and those great bakers of our ancestors in order to create…
