Our cooking videos have finally made it to the computer screen!! (applause) After months of “coming soon”, many of you have questioned if it was ever going to be a reality! After all this tease and much laziness on our part, here is our first installment in our cooking video series.

Warning, View with Caution!!! The editing process took place early this morning at 2 am, after a long days work, a glass of Zinfandel and how appropriate, three Midnight Ride Cocktails.

  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
