It’s a dough sheeter! Thanks for taking part in our previous post and kudos to everyone who got the correct answer.

We use this machine in the MCL Restaurant & Bakery kitchens to make hundreds of homemade pies each week. It greatly cuts down on the time it takes rolling them by hand. I’ve been using this particular piece of equipment a lot lately thanks to a new pot pie recipe I’ve been testing. I’ll let you know the next time it’s available to try in one of the stores.
So far I haven’t encountered a dough sheeter for home use, but if anyone else has, comment below with where you can purchase it.

Check back tomorrow to find out if you’re right!

Back in May I told you about my live appearance on the Indy Style television show (it airs on WISH-TV Channel 8 in Indianapolis). Well I must have done alright because they asked me back to cook again! You’d think I would have been less nervous the second time around, but actually it was just the opposite. You see, I have to get there to prep for the show about two hours before the it airs. This leaves a lot of time for me to anticipate the “live” aspect and worry about all that can go wrong.
During my segment I showed Tracy and Andi how to make a meal using a slow cooker. One of the great things about this recipe is that the meat can be used for several different things making great use of any leftovers. I’ve put the cooked pork in empanadas, tacos and even used it as a pizza topping. Thankfully, I didn’t have any great mishaps (like catching the set on fire) and once I got cooking I started to feel more comfortable. I don’t know if I’ll ever get completely used to being on camera, but I’m happy to make another visit to the show if they invite me on again. Hey, they say the third time’s the charm.
