Cooking with SDNGal

It's officially fall, aka my favorite time of year, and that means the
leaves are changing, the air is cooler, and the days are shorter. Since
becoming a mom, I realize that the day is shorter part of fall is my
least favorite thing about the season. Having two active little ones
means that the more time you can spend running around outside, the
better. But when fall and winter hits, you have to get creative. You
have to get serious. You have to make peanut butter playdough. I don't
have the source for this recipe...just the photocopy that was given to
me. It's super fun to make with the kids...and it truly is
"non-toxic"... they can eat it if they want!

Web 2.0 Expo, NY: KICKOFF!

Jenn (aka maybeimright) and I are at the Javits Center waiting for today's Web 2.0 festivities to kick off. We've been pouring over the conference guide and schedule, debating which sessions to attend and realizing there are more sessions on our list than time we have in the day. This seems to happen a lot. I'll be blogging the sessions, we'll both be tweeting over at Team_SDN and you should keep your eyes peeled for an update over at SunTAN as well. And of course, if you are here at the Expo and you are free tomorrow at 7pm and are interested in social media marketing, head on over to our BoF: Social Butterflies: Using Social Media to Grow Developer Communities. Okay....time to find our first session!

Let the Games Begin!

I love the Olympics. Love 'em. Ever since I was a little girl watching Mary Lou Retton flip and vault her way to gold in L.A. I've looked forward to the summer games. And tonight they begin! (Ok, technically, the opening ceremony is over, but for us out here on the west coast, it hasn't been televised). I'll be DVR'ing all of the games, but I'll also be playing MyPicks Beijing 2008.

MyPicks Beijing 2008 is a Facebook application allows players to predict Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal winners throughout the games. When a player (ME!) predicts correctly (Which, um, I WILL), points are added to the players' home country's score and the country with the highest point total at the conclusion of the Summer Olympics is the winner. The app was built using Sun's social application development environment, known as zembly.  Zembly has been in private beta since June and enables folks to quickly develop social apps for platforms lik Facebook, Meebo, OpenSocial and iPhone.

So add MyPicks Beijing 2008 to your Facebook page and play along! Maybeimright and I have challenged each other to make the most correct predictions. I'm totally going to win. Not that it matters. But I am.


ps- I'm on vacation next week so no updates from me in this space. Have fun!

Cooking with SDNGal

It's time for our weekly installment of Cookin' with SDNGal. Today I bring you Thai Shrimp Soup. It's a family favorite. Hope you enjoy it!

Thai Shrimp Soup

2 TBSP canola oil 

1 TBSP minced fresh ginger

3 gloves garlic, minced

1 TBSP hot chili paste 

4 C. Chicken Stock 

1 - 14oz can of creamed corn

1/2 lb. frozen shrimp, defrosted

1 TBSP water

1 TBSP cornstarch

1 tsp sugar 

1 egg, slightly beaten 

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

In a large dutch oven or saucepan heat the canola oil over medium heat. Add ginger, garlic, and chili paste and stir for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock, corn, and shrimp. Cook for 10 minutes. Whisk together the water, cornstarch and sugar and add into soup. Stir until slightly thicker, about 3 minutes. Add the beaten egg and stir for one minute more. Add the chopped cilantro and serve. A word to the wise: this is best served fresh. It isn't the tastiest as leftovers. The shrimp get a little tough in reheating. This recipe will serve four folks. ;)

Cooking with SDNGal

Time for our weekly Cooking with SDNGal feature. Today's recipe comes from my Grandma Evie who was the cutest thing ever to come out of Oklahoma. Tiny, southern, adorable. I was looking through her old recipe box, trying to find her recipe for baked custard when I came across today's feature: Chili Relleno Casserole. I couldn't help myself...I decided to try it out! Mostly because I LOVE chili rellenos but also because it seems so 1950s to me. And away we go:

Cooking with SDNGal

Heya! This week's installment of cooking with SDNGal. I don't know
where this recipe originates from. I do know that it is something my
Mom made for years and it's the recipe that won me the Best of Show in
baking, junior division at the California State Fair when I was in
elementary school. I know. I'll give you a moment to take that in. If
only I had the photo of me holding the ribbon with my pseudo Farrah
Fawcett hairdo and my kickin' bottle cap glasses. Anyhoo, it's called
the 14-Carrot Cake and it's delicious. Let's get started.

treat in the Dailey household as well. Here we go:
