If you're looking for a new style of cooking check out this delicious post by +Azlin Bloor 
Travel with the flavors of Vietnam with her Vietnamese Braised Fish
 
Vietnamese Braised Fish

Another recipe picked up in Vietnam, this Vietnamese Braised Fish is traditionally cooked in a claypot and called Cá Kho Tộ, the last two syllables, referring to a claypot. This dish is the personification of the sweet and salty flavour combination found in much of East Asia.

Quick and easy, perfect eaten with just some steamed rice and green vegetables or as part of a more lavish meal.

Full recipe: http://linsfood.com/vietnamese-braised-fish/

Periscope, Twitters native live streaming source has launched today

Description from Periscope on Itunes
Periscope lets you broadcast live video to the world. Going live will instantly notify your followers who can join, comment and send you hearts in real time. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen

Other features
[_+] REPLAY: When your broadcast is over, you can make it available for replay so viewers can watch later. Viewers can replay your broadcast with comments and hearts to relive the full experience. Replays currently last 24 hours. You can delete your replay at any time.
[+] PRIVATE: If you want to broadcast to specific people, press the lock icon before going live and choose who you want to invite to your broadcast. 
[+] TWITTER: You can choose to share your Periscope broadcasts on Twitter by tapping the bird icon before you start broadcasting. When you go live, you’ll tweet a link so that your Twitter followers can watch on the web (or in the app)
[+] MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS: Periscope will suggest people for you to follow based on your Twitter network. You can always follow new people, or unfollow them if you don’t want to be notified when they go live. You can also adjust notification preferences in Periscope Settings (in Profile)
[+] HEARTS: Periscope keeps track of how many hearts you get from your viewers. The more hearts, the higher you get in the “Most Loved” list

With everyone excited about Meerkat Twitter has answered with its own version which will be supported as an official app for Twitter which should make it easier to use and more available to all of Twitter's users.

As it stands now Periscope only seems to be Apple friendly and you can find the app in the Apple Store http://goo.gl/OXzpsK

Earlier I had reported that Meerkat was Android friendly but it turns out you can only watch on Android through the App not broadcast, hopefully Periscope will add an app for Android users.

I'm sure more will be written on the subject but for more information go to the Periscope Website in the link below.

I've also found a great tool for keeping up to date on Tech subjects thanks to my friend +Bess Auer and that is Product Hunt  check out the site to learn more  http://www.producthunt.com/

#twitter    #meerkat   #periscope   #askchefdennis  
Today we’re excited to unveil Periscope, the best way to share and watch live video broadcasts from your mobile phone.

With Easter just around the corner why not celebrate with your very own Classic Yellow Cake with Mascarpone Frosting and Coconut

Check out my blog post for a printable copy of the recipe: http://goo.gl/nybIFH

Easter Cake
Ingredients
Cake
12 tablespoons (6 ounces) butter -softened
1¾ cups (12¼ ounces) sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
2½ teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs, 2 yolks - room temperature
2¼ cups (11½ ounces) all-purpose flour
1½ cup ( 12 ounces) milk - room temp
Mascarpone frosting
12 ounces mascarpone - room temp
6 ounces butter - room temp
1 tablespoon vanilla
6 cups 10 x sugar
Topping
4 ounces flake coconut
green food coloring
your favorite robin egg candy

Instructions
Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, salt and baking powder until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes
add the eggs in one at a time to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. (make sure to scrape down the bowl between each step)
Add ⅓ of the flour, then half the milk, and repeat the process until you've added the last third of the flour. (scrape down the bowl frequently)
Pour the batter into greased and floured or parchment lined 9 inch baking pans and smooth out batter.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the cake begins to pull away from the sides of the pan.
Allow to cool on wire racks for 10 minutes, then turn out the cakes and continue cooling on wire racks until completely cooled.
Frosting
mix together mascarpone and butter and whip until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes)
Slowly add the 10 x sugar, one third at a time, mixing well and scraping down the bowl after each addition.
Add vanilla and mix until fully blended
Topping
mix 4 or 5 drops of green food coloring to the coconut (or more if you want it darker) and mix until all the coconut is the same shade of green
Assembly
Put together cake layers with one cup of frosting in between each layer.
Spread a small amount of frosting over the entire cake making a light coating, this is your crumb coat. Refrigerate for 20 minutes then apply frosting to the entire cake with an even coat.
Place frosting into a pastry bag, and using the star tip make little flour shapes by squeezing out the frosting and pulling up. Go around the top of the cake with large flowers, and around the bottom of the cake with smaller flowers
Place green coconut on the top of the cake inside of the circle of flowers.
Place candy robin eggs on top and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.
