Beat The Clock Pancakes

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

I’m on my book tour, and I loved doing the Today Show because it proved that, propelled by the energy of Kathie Lee and Hoda, you can actually make an entire brunch in three minutes, which, of course, is a Crabby Cook’s dream. Okay, yes, they do provide help in the form of three chefs and two prop people (none of whom could be persuaded to come back to L.A. to live with me and solve all my kitchen bitchin’), but still, this was speed cooking at it’s finest.

Here is the recipe for the pumpkin pancakes I made on the Today Show, in case you missed it or the speed-of-light cooking style was too fast for you. Don’t worry if you can’t make both of these (along with the Acon-Bay Olls-Ray and Bloody Marys also concocted during my segment) in three minutes. It just means you will never be on national television and are pretty much a loser.

You can attend the party in your pajamas with your teeth unbrushed, and you don’t have to iron your napkins! No searching in the garage for the ice bucket or assigning a designated driver for Aunt Lucy! No post-party guacamole stains on the carpet!

This is my kind of event.

Smokin’ Salmon Sandwiches

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Smoked salmon is one of those things nobody ever told me about until I was grown up. I mean, I guess I heard about it, but it was food beyond my reach. It never appeared in our kitchen; in small-town Illinois, it seemed exotic.

Other things I didn’t see much of included calves’ liver and oysters but when I tasted them for the first time, I knew it would be the last. I had quite a different reaction to silky, seductive smoked salmon. Read More
