STUPIDLY SIMPLE DEVILED EGGS

SOMETIMES, STUPIDLY SIMPLE SNACKS ARE INSPIRED BY MY FRIENDS’ SUGGESTIONS. Other times, my talented guest stars share their secrets. Of course, then there are those snack recipes which are the product of pure guesswork. My deviled eggs recipe, however, was not one of them. By combining knowledge from three well-known personalities, I made DEVILED EGGS the Stupidly Simple Snacks way. Video instructions from Chef John of Food Wishes guided the hard-boiling process, Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Work Week showed in this video that there is, apparently, a way to peel eggs without peeling, and then there was Martha Stewart’s Creamy Deviled Eggs recipe, which seemed like a good one to follow. I didn’t follow it strictly, naturally, because I am a person with a limited attention span and mild aversion to shallots. I’d eat them if I had to, but if it means getting dressed and heading to the supermarket, then that would defeat the purpose of Stupidly Simple Snack-ing and that just wouldn’t do. amy • december 5, 2010

Ice Cream Lollipops With GALE GAND

A FEW WEEKS AGO, I was invited to interview Gale Gand, a Chicago-based superstar pastry chef, restaurateurcookbook author, and former Food Network host, who was in New York to promote Breyers’ Sundae Scoop-Off. Gale had created a series of ice cream recipes to inspire young (at heart) sundae makers, including one for ice cream lollipops, which we created together under bright studio lights and heavy makeup. The experience was a far cry from my last snack video, which I filmed in my uncomfortably warm kitchen and jeans. But, isn’t that the damnedest thing? You can be anyone anywhere and wear whatever you want while making Stupidly Simple Snacks, including balls of ice cream. amy • august 30, 2010

magic shell chocolate sauce (available in most supermarkets or make it from scratch using Brownie Points recipe)

STUPIDLY SIMPLE SNACKS Joins Hungry Nation

I PULLED AN ALL-NIGHTER LAST NIGHT. This is pretty unimpressive news, I know, but truly there’s nothing like not being able to stay awake to remind you how uncool you are. These days, the highlight of my evening is dinner and a movie. Or maybe dinner and an episode of Lost (only 88 more episodes to go…). But, I’m not complaining. Besides, my Stupidly Simple Snacks series is launching on Next New Network‘s Hungry Nation tomorrow! Why else would I stay awake, stuffing my face with blueberry pie? Obviously, I’m up editing video masterpieces. Welcome to my life where missing bedtime means I’m dating iMovie and there’s more time to eat…

Every Tuesday, catch new episodes of Stupidly Simple Snacks here on Amy Blogs Chow and on HungryNation.TV. I love you guys. Thanks so much for your support and for watching me make snacks on the littlest screen. amy july 28, 2010

STUPIDLY SIMPLE SNACKS • Guacamole!

STUPIDLY SIMPLE SNACKS IS BACK! After a two-month unintended hiatus from video awesomeness, I’m excited to say that Stupidly Simple Snacks will soon be a weekly feature of Amy Blogs Chow and on Hungry Nation, a network of web-based food shows created by Next New Networks, the leading independent producer of online television networks.

I can’t tell you what makes NNN the leading indie producer of online TV networks (it’s the only one I know, quite frankly) but I am pumped to join the ranks of Hungry Nation veterans and fellow food lovers Dan of VendrTV and Rebecca of Working Class Foodies! Also joining the network is Food Wishes, which is like the godfather of online cooking shows. Chef John is a pretty big deal in the food blogging world.

Stupidly Simple Snacks will launch on Hungry Nation at the end of July, so I’ll be making many more videos going forward. I already have some super silly stuff lined up, including a ceviche video I made with Jenna Meister, my BFF and cast member of Jet Set Zero: Quito, while I was in Ecuador last month. It’s going to be great! Now, without further ado, I present my first video from Quito, Ecuador – Stupidly Simple Snacks: Guacamole! amy july 13, 2010

WHAT YOU NEED 2 avocados | 1 tomato | 1 lemon | half onion | salt & pepper

SERVINGS 3 to 4
