how2heroes 2011 Staff Video Picks
Video: Chicken Tortilla Salad with Cilantro-Lime Dressing
, author of “Raising the Salad Bar”
“I love this salad all year round! It’s so easy and delicious. A perfect mix of bright tangy flavors and an incredible crunchy texture that you’ll have trouble saying no to for second and even third helpings!”
Video: Gingerbread Pancakes with Vanilla cialis vs sildenafil Cream

Hero: Eli Dunn, Beehive Cafe
Kelsey is on vacation but she came back from this shoot raving about these pancakes and saying they were the best thing she ate all year. Considering the hundreds of shoots she went on and the amount of things she’s tried, her seal of approval on this recipe is good enough for me.
Video: How to Cook with Pie Irons
“How did I not know what a pie iron is? I’m always looking for easy meals
to make while camping and ways to avoid doing dishes. The pie iron seems to meet both criteria pretty well! I’m looking forward to experimenting with different ingredients now that I’ve got the basics down.
Video: Tequila-BBQ Chicken Tacos with Peach Salsa
Hero: Brian Poe, Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake
“What’s better than barbecue, tequila, and tacos? Not much, so luckily this dish
has it all! It’s spicy, it’s sweet and so savory! Trust me. It’s impossible to have just one!
Video: South Texas Pork Tamales
Hero: Amanda Escamilla, Tex Mex Eats
“I absolutely love tamales! It reminds me a lot of the taste of an arepa (Venezuelan corn ‘breads’.) This video is very thorough and you can tell Amanda totally knows her stuff. It’s a fun recipe to make with friends and family and you can get creative with the fillings.”
Video: Maque Choux
Hero: Heather Tolmie, Culinary Underground
“I think I like this dish
so much because of its depth of flavor. First you experience the light crunch & pop of freshly sautéed corn, onions & bell pepper that have been simmering in heavy cream. Then the heat & spice of the dish cleanses your pallet preparing you for another bite.”
Video: Corned Beef
Hero: Tony Maws, Craigie on Main
“I’ve always wanted to make a killer corned beef – and this is a super simple and delicious recipe. Plus, once it’s done I have lunch for a week!”
Video: Growing & Harvesting Hops
Hero: Gene L’Etoile, Four Star Farms
“I am a big fan of the Farm Field trips that open our minds to the source of ingredients. We’ve all enjoyed a frosty beer but how many of us have seen how hops are grown & harvested? It’s incredible to see how the hops climb up to the sky in such a short period of time. The passion and commitment of the Four Star Farms folks to produce a quality product comes through in Gene L’Etoile’s knowledgeable and sincere delivery. And I have to give full props to our crew for their dedication as they needed to make 2 long trips out to western Massachusetts to capture the beginning and end of the growing season to give you the full story.”
Video: Grapefruit Vodka
Hero: Dave Anastasi, Rival Marketing
“Anyone can buy flavored vodka off the store shelves, but making your own is much tastier – not to mention more fun! This recipe took the intimidation out of infusing vodka and was a hit with the many friends I gifted it to.”
Video: Buttermilk Pie
Hero: Tie Lewis, Glutenus Minimus “Dessert has to be more than a sugary treat for me. It has to come with a good story. Tie’s Buttermilk Pie is an homage to her grandmother, who she credits for her love of baking. With only a handful of ingredients, this is a minimalist pie, and it’s got me covered on tangy and sweet. I like it warm out the oven with a big dollop of lemon curd.”
Video: Vegetable Minestrone
Hero: Marjorie Druker (former Hero of the Year!)
“This soup is so packed with vegetables. It’s like a full meal but also pairs great with a perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Everything Marjorie makes is made with love,
viagra and blood pressure but you can really feel her love and passion come through in this delicious soup!”
