Moving on up…or sideways…maybe…

Just a little heads up….I’ve kinda moved my blog to:

jessdowse.wordpress.com

it’s more of a profile of everything I’ve ever done.

Going to start blogging about my documentary on there sooner or later….

so check it out!


Unintended Irony

So I haven’t been my ironic cook self lately…and that’s for two reasons:

1. As my last video shows….I’ve been busy becoming a kick-ass journo…or something to that affect!

2. I have….shock horror…began to cook in an un-ironic way!

Granted it’s not always good…but I’ve started just cooking…and enjoying it! I don’t want to be bad anymore. I want to learn. I want to be able to host dinner parties in my New York loft apartment!….

However….I still have a long way to go!

Here is a little example of the rubbish I served up the other day….


What This Week?

Christmas Special!

Ok, so I’m back to taking your suggestions….more fool me!

I am now at home in a significantly larger kitchen, complete with spangily, shiny equipment just waiting for my abuse!

So do your best…..

I want cake ideas, trifles, sponges, waffles topped with meringue whips and chocolate droppings…something along those lines!!

Test me! Go ahead!


The Response: Justin Bieber Sickly Soup


Ready Steady Cook: Justin Bieber Soup

Just how sick is it?


The Daily Munch: Ready Steady Cook Challenge.

‘The Decision…’

‘The cooking’ is coming soon to a computer screen near you….


My Musical Response To My Ready Steady Cook Meal.

Justin Bieber Soup- It’s sick!

So I did my Ready Steady Cook challenge last night and I really felt that I should give you my musical response to it asap….because it was mingin’!

I made soup….but I think it was more like soggy vegetables floating in hot water.

Thus, much like Justin Bieber….it made me feel sick! 

(No hater mail please!)

Enjoy!!!


Ready Steady Cook: The Ingredients

The Kindly Donated Ingredients


What This Week? Ready Steady Cook Challenge!


So I am broke.

I blame this blog….as you can see I like to blame others for my shortcomings (Adrian!).

But honestly, spices and all that jazz are the bane of my wallet….and apparently you need all that stuff to give your food actual taste…more fool me for thinking food actually has integral taste…I’m learning!

So I addressed my peers today in the newsroom and told them that the blog would have to be put on hold for a week due to my ‘zero’ bank balance…Now I wouldn’t like to say that the room fell totally silent…but you could pretty much hear a pin drop….and a few sobs….

Then James the genius piped up- really living up to his new name I must say-

‘No. Wait Jess! This can’t happen! I can’t let you do that….there must be something we can do…’

…..cue moody, rising to inspirational music as he stares towards the window, fingers fondling beard….

‘By God I’ve got it! A ready steady cook style challenge! We’ll all donate an ingredient and you’ll have to make something edible from them all! Damn, I really am a genius…’

….Cue sexy music as he runs his fingers though his hair, flashes a smile and does a finger gun at the camera, a twinkle in his eye….

The room whooped and nodded in agreement….

And so, this week, it’s a student style, impoverished, likely to be truly horrific, probably will result in a week off uni, Ready Steady Cook challenge…..AGH!


The Response: James Is A Genius!

I should mention that approximately 12 hours after this response I had to take a day off uni because I felt pretty bleak…I like to think it wasn’t because of my cooking…but who knows!

Musical responses:

What music does this food make you think of?
