cooking and talking without falling over

I’ve got something to show you!

Months ago I talked a little about a few videos I was working on with my friends Luke and Ethan over at SeeThink films. Remember those pop tarts that Rosie and I were rolling out over and over to see if we could get them perfect the first time? (The answer being, of course, no, but we knew that all along, right?) All three of our videos are out in the world now, but I wanted to show you this one in particular, first, because of the dance that Rosie does when we take those pop tarts (ahem, sorry- toaster pastries) out of the oven, and second, because I thought that homemade pop tarts might just be about the best holiday breakfast I can think of. I hope you like it!  And (cue professional, non-mumbling me voice) Hi, I’m Alana, and this is my kitchen…

      Absolutely! Assemble, and then lay out on a baking sheet and freeze. Then you can bake them in the morning right out of the freezer.
