Spring Break in Jenna’s Kitchen

I’m so glad we get two weeks for spring break because there was so much to do!  I had the honor of having lunch with Tony Rose for an interview about Jenna’s Kitchen.  Tony is a local radio personality on D93 and he is so much fun!  He is also a fellow Auburn Tiger! #auburnroars  If you missed it you can catch it on my Facebook Page or here at Lunch with Tony Rose.

Next Auburn Archery competed at the State Archery Tournament in Louisville!  I had a good score going but completely bombed my first round at 15 meters.  I finished with a decent score of 270.  One of my 7th-grade classmates won the middle school championship.  Congratulations, Isaac Stanley!  Our team shot well enough to make it to the National Tournament in May!

Happy Easter!  Rejoice that,”He is Risen!”  Enjoyed a great worship service, ate and rested.  My mom and I have been watching this series from the Hallmark Channel, “When Calls the Heart.”  It’s a great show!

We had a family fun day of bowling and Jump Air Zone!  I enjoyed the Southern Birdie Pizza at Azzip Pizza.  It had a pimento cheese base, cheese, fried chicken, sweet drop peppers and a sweet tea glaze.  Yum!  Then we went to the new cookie dough store in town and tried it.  It was sweet but wish my toppings were mixed into the cookie dough instead of just put on top of plain cookie dough.

Y’all I love watching cookie decorating videos and one decorator that is close to home is Brave Olive Cookies. Ladonna was nice enough to give me a private lesson and show me how to airbrush cookies with royal icing.  So much fun!  Now I still need lots of practice, so teachers, coaches, friends, and family….get ready for cookie explosions soon!  The icing on the cake, was we were able to do the class at Betsy Ann’s House and I got a few new Agnes & Dora outfits!

Then today I went on Midday Live on WBKO with Laura Rogers.  But y’all,  I had to improvise!  To get everything set up for the show, we arrive about an hour early.  I set my dough out and I guess it dried out and it did not want to cooperate at all!!  I said it was easy but it didn’t look easy today, but I promise it is!  You can go back and watch the YouTube Video I did on the soft pretzels as proof!  But if you need some comic relief, you can watch me sweat here.  I ran out of time to talk about my dipping sauce recipes so I thought I would post them here!  Hope you enjoy!

Cooking Meets Science

Uploaded today is my new YouTube video with Ms. Jones Science.  Science and cooking are two of my favorite things and I love how this video gives the viewers both.  At the state fair last year, I knew I wanted to learn to make funnel cakes and to experiment with different variations.  I found a funnel cake kit at a kitchen store and I knew it was meant to be.


About the same time, I had been watching Ms. Jones Science Channel and thought her experiments were pretty cool.  We got together and decided it would be cool to do a collaboration video where I would cook and she would explain the science behind it.  She offered the suggestion of deep fried foods!  Um, hello….perfect!  We decided on funnel cakes!  I’ve learned a lot about the science of frying foods and about sharing videos for a collaboration. (Mom and I had some technical issues!)  I am so excited to share the video with you and hope you learn as much as I did!  Check it out Funnel Cakes Meets Science!
