A Cooking Show: Tomato Soup!

I had such a wonderful time filming with some of the funniest guys I know and my friends; Langston Belton, Nick Carillo, and Devin Heater.

These three are the creators and stars of G.U.S, an entirely improvised story of three men trapped in a Generic Underground Shelter after the apocalypse.  If you are in the New York area and would like to see one of the best improv trios in New York City, you can find out all of their information on their Facebook and Twitter.

This episode I taught the boys how to make homemade tomato soup. Well. I tried to teach them.

This recipe is low calorie, dairy free, gluten free, and can be vegan if you substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth!

And it is delicious!

ENJOY!

A Cooking Show Episode 10: Breakfast Cookies!

Episode 10 is here!

I can’t believe we are in the double digits.

Way to go me for sticking with something.

This week’s special guest is Mindy Raf! She is a comedian and recent author of her debut young adult novel, The Symptoms of My Insanity. 

She is incredibly funny, smart, and was an absolute blast to have on the show!

This episode we made Breakfast Cookies. These are a healthy and delicious way to get all the necessary fuel in your morning breakfast in a convenient, ready-to-go cookie.

Not only are they good, they are really easy to make! Enjoy!

Breakfast Cookies

3 ripe bananas

1/3 cup apple sauce

2 cups instant oats

1/4 cup skim milk

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tbsp maple syrup (or sugar)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mash bananas and mix with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.

3. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes for the oats to soak everything in.

4. Make small balls of the mixture onto a greased/aluminum foil or parchment paper covered baking sheet. I used parchment paper to avoid adding more grease.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

6. Let cool and eat!

ENJOY!
