Bon Appe-Tips!

Sooooo, here's a little something new Matt and I've been having fun with. We're calling this series Bon Appe-Tips, asyou'll see quite plainlythese videos include some great and/or questionable cooking and entertaining tips. Here are the first three. Enjoy!
As always, many thanks to Wesafari for the awesome music. And also, thanks to Neal and Jodi for their sweet cameos.

In somewhat related news, I'm teaching a blogging seminar and a fiction writing class this Fall. Check it out, and, Angelenos, if you're interested, sign up! It's going to be a lot of fun. Thanks!

My god. I'm up late and trying to cackle softly so that I don't wake my boyfriend up (I'm not usually a late-night stalker; I feel the need to make this clear). But first I went wide-eyed in (shock? awe? stunned amusement?), then I slapped my hand to my head and started laughing like some cross between the Wicked Witch and the old lady I saw at Costco today. Thanks for keeping us laughing!

p.s. I so want to sign up for your fiction course; alas, my only experience is investigative journalism/nonfiction (that, and I'm supposed to be traveling part of that time)! But out of curiosity, do you take newbies?

Mary Anne said...

THANKS FOR THE TIPS!!!!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!!! hahahahaha this is the best!

Ms.Nožisková said...

brilliant, my dear lady. what a fab use of your new kitchen!!!
xoxo


p.s. definitely take Kara to forage!

ileana said...

Wigging out!! I wish I could sign up for your class. So far away. :(

amelia said...

Sarah, toootally! That class is actually perfect for beginners because it's a lot of writing exercises and short critique sessions... aka, no pressure!

Alsooo, so glad you laughed at the TIPS!! :)

K said...

Your winks are really superb. Not too subtle.

Looking forward to more tips!

Alison said...

Hi-larious! Almost as though Martha Stewart and Dr. Steve Brule had a child..

amelia said...

Dr. Steve Brule was totally on our minds when we shot these. Sooooo: thank you!!

Anonymous said...

I sorry, but you're not funny....find it annoying.

Mark and Marsha said...

Hi Anonymous!
I'm pretty sure you're in the minority. It kinda takes a real a-hole to leave an anonymous comment like that on a site like this.

Amelia: We love the tips! Keep 'em coming!

joanna said...

there are no words for this. NONE.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katherine @ eggton said...

This was even sexier than the movie I saw last night and it involved Russel Crowe with long hair playing a troubled but redeemable journalist.

Melanie said...

Talk about essential cooking tips! You are hilarious!!

Mary Anne said...

i think this is pretty much the greatest compliment that Bon Appetempt could ever imagine!

Mary Anne said...

hahahaha, what an idiot. a good rule of thumb: if you're not willing to say something openly with your name attached to it, best not to say it at all! grow up!

Mary Anne said...

Also, Amerz: congrats!! You know you've hit the big time in internet-land when you start getting anonymous haters! this is a milestone.

Steph G. said...

OMG! Loudly cracking up at my desk here. Made my morning!

Andrea said...

So it's safe to say Anonymous won't be signing up for the seminar?!

Jennifer said...

Rachel said...

Carol Anne @ Rock Salt said...

Amazing.

mrs. V { Chez V } said...

How did I not know you existed? Found you today, thanks be to hay suess. Loved your Robyn cover dance party. Made my weekend so much that I ditched my intended post for today and shared that little jewel with my whole world - which incidentally is only 4 people. But 4 super really important people who know a few other people who don't know anyone.

So thanks for nothing b/c now I will spend the better part of my day devouring your archives rather than doing something productive like scrubbing my toilet or feeding my 4 yr old.

amelia said...

hahahhaaaa & thank you!!

amelia said...

Thanks, Kristen!! Matt and I've got an email correspondence going under the subject "9 Bon Appe-tips Ideas." :) :)

Jenna said...

i don't know what the best EVER bon appétempt video is, but these are my recent favorites! these are so genius, amelia! love them.

{lauren} thetalkingkitchen said...

hilarious. truly. have you ever seen the youtube video about "shoes" this reminds me of this except you aren't a man and say "shoes" too much, but you are as funny so that's a good thing.

Alison said...

I had a sneaking suspicion...

I sent this link to my brother-in-law, my gateway to Dr. Steve Brule, and we proceeded to laugh like maniacs while watching it at our respective residences!

Keep the Bon Appe-tips coming!

God, I love your tips. You're like a female Steve Brule (for yer 'ealth!). Reminds me of something I might do if I a. had a cool loft in California, b. the guts to be silly on camera and c. had thought of it first. Brava. Brava.
