>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST
OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND UP-TO-DATE
INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES IN TODAY'S ACTIVE
WORLD, WITH YOUR HOST SHERYL BORDEN.
>> WELCOME TO "CREATIVE LIVING" TODAY. WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW
TO MAKE BEER BATTLER ARTICHOKE FRITTERS, TALK ABOUT ADOPTING
HOMELESS ANIMALS, AND DEMONSTRATE USING ELABORATE
STENCILS ON SOME PROJECTS.
ONE OF MY GUESTS IS JOHN VOLLERTSEN, MORE COMMONLY KNOWN
AS CHEF JOHNNY VEE. JOHN IS A COOKBOOK AUTHOR AND CHEF, AND
HE'LL DEMONSTRATE HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE BEER BATTER AND THEN COAT
THE ARTICHOKE HEARTS TO SERVE WITH A DIPPING SAUCE. HE OWNS
AND OPERATES LAS COSAS COOKING SCHOOL IN SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO.
ANOTHER GUEST IS MATTHEW FESTA, AND HE'S WITH A GROUP CALLED
GUARDIANS OF RESCUE. MATTHEW IS GOING TO EXPLAIN HOW TO ADOPT A
PET, AND HE STRONGLY SUGGESTS GOING THROUGH A SHELTER TO HELP
REDUCE THE 6 MILLION TO 8 MILLION ANIMALS THAT ARE KILLED
EACH YEAR. HE LIVES IN SMITHTOWN, NEW YORK. WE'LL BEGIN
THE SHOW TODAY WITH SARA MOWER, AND SHE'LL SHOW HOW TO EASILY
CREATE BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK BY SIMPLY TRACING WITH STENCILS.
YOU CAN EVEN USE THE EDGES TO CREATE COORDINATING FRAMES AND
BORDERS. SARA REPRESENTS ROYLCO, INCORPORATED, IN
ANDERSON, SOUTH CAROLINA.
SARA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US TODAY, AND YOU'RE
GOING TO SHOW US A WAY TO USE STENCILS AND SOMETHING THAT I
THOUGHT HAD SORT PASSED BY. I STILL SEE THE 123 AND THE ABC
STENCILS. MY KIDS AND GRANDKIDS HAVE ALWAYS LIKED TO DO THAT,
BUT STENCILING HAS COME A LONG WAY, HASN'T IT?
>> IT SURE HAS. AS YOU KNOW, THE ABC STENCILS ARE STILL AROUND.
OF COURSE, CHILDREN STILL LOVE TO USE THOSE, BUT WE HAVE SOME
NEW STENCILS THAT ARE BASIC TO MORE COMPLEX DESIGNS.
>> AND ONE THING, I HADN'T THOUGHT ABOUT USING THEM TO
CREATE HOME DECOR ITEMS.
>> YES. WE'VE JUST USED A SIMPLE CANVAS HERE, AND WE CREATED A
BEAUTIFUL WALL COLLAGE BY GIVING A DIFFERENT LOOK AND USING 3
PIECES AND MAKING IT LOOK AS A CONTINUAL PATTERN.
>> AND YOU ACTUALLY CONTINUED THE PAINT, SORT OF A FREEHAND.
>> YES. CONTINUE YOUR PATTERN DOWN THE SIDES AND THEN WHEN YOU
PLACE THIS ON YOUR WALL, YOU WANT TO LEAVE NO MORE THAN ONE
INCH BETWEEN SO THAT LOOKS LIKE ONE PIECE.
>> SO YOUR EYE JUST FLOWS, AND IT LOOKS LIKE ONE PIECE OF ART.
>> YES.
>> THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. IS THAT VERY HARD TO DO?
>> NO, NOT WITH THE STENCILS.
SO YOUR FRIENDS ARE ALL GONNA BE REALLY IMPRESSED WHEN THEY SEE
SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
>> OK, AND YOU SAID WE JUST START WITH A REGULAR CANVAS.
A LOT OF PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY ARTISTS, WOULD HAVE THESE IN
VARIOUS SIZES, AND YOU CAN GET THEM FROM LITTLE, TINY TO HUGE.
>> RIGHT. YOU COULD BUY A CANVAS SMALL ENOUGH JUST TO COVER ONE
STENCIL, BUT I JUST WANT TO SHOW YOU THE BASIC WAY WE STARTED OUT
WITH THE BASE COLOR.
>> AND WHAT TYPE OF PAINT ARE WE USING?
>> THESE ARE JUST ACRYLIC PAINTS...
>> UH-HUH, SO WATER-BASED.
>> AND I'M USING A SPONGE. NOW, THIS IS JUST FOR OUR BACKGROUND.
NOW, WE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING SPECIAL HERE. THIS KIND OF LOOKS
TWO-TONE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS, BUT WE DID NOT PRIME THIS FIRST,
SO WHATEVER KIND OF LOOK YOU WOULD LIKE.
>> IT ALMOST LOOKS VARIEGATED OR WOOD-GRAINED, IF YOU WILL.
>> RIGHT, AND SO WHATEVER LOOK YOUR GOING FOR, YOU CAN CREATE
THAT.
>> SO YOU CAN DO SOME LIGHTS, SOME DARKS, AND REALLY PULL THE
PAINT IF YOU WANT IT TO BE THIN.
>> RIGHT. SO THIS IS THE BASIC IDEA FOR OUR BACKGROUND.
>> MM-HMM, AND ACRYLIC DRIES REAL FAST, DOESN'T IT?
>> YES. THAT'S THE NICE THING ABOUT THAT. SO THEN THIS IS OUR
NATURE STENCILS...
>> MM-HMM.
>> AND WE SIMPLY WANT TO TAPE IT DOWN AFTER THIS IS COMPLETELY
DRY. TAPE IT DOWN SO IT WON'T MOVE AROUND ON YOU, AND WE'RE
USING A SPONGE AGAIN, AND HOLD YOUR RUBBING PLATE DOWN, ALSO,
TO PREVENT IT FROM SEEPING THROUGH YOUR EDGES.
>> THAT WAS ALWAYS SOME TROUBLE THAT I HAD, WAS, I WOULD PUSH IT
UP. SO I LIKE THE WAY YOU'RE HOLDING THAT AND KIND OF
DABBING.
>> KIND OF BLOTTING AND DABBING SO THAT IT WON'T GO UNDERNEATH
THE RUBBING PLATE, BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS TOUCH IT UP IF THAT DOES
HAPPEN.
>> MM-HMM.
>> SO THIS IS THE BASIC IDEA.
>> AND WOULD YOU LEAVE THE STENCIL ON UNTIL IT'S COMPLETELY
DRY OR TAKE IT OFF AS SOON AS YOU PAINTED IT?
>> I WOULD TAKE IT OFF, REMOVE IT SO--
YOU CAN ALWAYS TOUCH UP LATER AFTER IT IS COMPLETELY DRY.
>> AND WE MIGHT GO BACK AND LOOK AT THESE BECAUSE THE ARTIST JUST
WENT AHEAD AND PUT IN SOME LITTLE CURLICUES, ADDED A LITTLE
MORE COLOR.
>> JUST EMBELLISHED IT.
>> UH-HUH, JUST EMBELLISHED IT SO IT REALLY DOES MAKE A NICE
PIECE OF ART.
>> AND, AS YOU SEE HERE, WE HAVE SOME DECORATIVE EDGES AROUND THE
STENCIL, AND...
>> I'M GONNA LIFT THIS UP JUST A LITTLE BIT.
>> THIS PARTICULAR STENCIL HAS 4 DIFFERENT EDGES AROUND IT SO YOU
CAN USE THIS TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL FRAME OR BORDER AROUND
YOUR ARTWORK.
>> MM-HMM. THAT MAKES IT VERY VERSATILE TO BUY THESE.
>> THAT'S RIGHT.
>> UH-HUH, AND THIS IS AN EXAMPLE. THIS IS VERY SIMPLE.
>> YEAH, AND SOMETHING JUST SIMPLE IS SOMETIMES BETTER...
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND MAKES BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK.
>> SO, AGAIN, WE COULD HANG THESE IN A GROUPING IF WE WANTED
TO OR ONE SLIGHTLY ABOVE, DEPENDING ON WHERE WE'RE PUTTING
THEM IN OUR HOUSE.
>> THAT'S RIGHT.
>> MM-HMM, AND THEN YOU SAID WE GO FROM SIMPLE TO COMPLEX, AND
THIS IS REALLY COMPLEX.
>> THIS IS A RANGOLI STENCIL...
>> RANGOLI.
>> AND THIS, IT LOOKS VERY COMPLEX, BUT THIS WAS ALL
CREATED WITH THIS ONE STENCIL HERE, AND WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
IS, YOU WANT TO START IN YOUR CORNER, AND TO GIVE IT THIS
PATTERNED OR MIRRORED EFFECT, YOU SIMPLY FLIP YOUR RUBBING
PLATE OVER AND FILL YOUR SPOTS IN, AND THEN YOU JUST CONTINUE
FLIPPING IT OVER AND OVER, AND YOU HAVE A CONTINUAL PATTERN AND
MAKE THIS LARGE ARTWORK HERE THAT YOU SEE.
>> NOW, THIS ALMOST LOOKS LIKE IT'S DONE WITH INK.
>> YEAH. WELL, THESE WERE JUST DONE WITH MARKERS.
>> OH, MARKERS.
>> YOU CAN USE MARKERS, CRAYONS, PAINT. SO THERE'S MANY DIFFERENT
MEDIUMS YOU CAN USE WITH THIS.
>> AND IS THIS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST COMPLEX ONES THAT YOU
HAVE?
>> YES. THIS IS A RANGOLI STENCIL. THIS IS POPULAR IN
WESTERN INDIA, AND THEY USE THIS TO CELEBRATE THEIR FESTIVAL OF
LIGHTS, AND THEY ADORN THEIR DOORWAYS AND THEIR HOME WITH
THIS STENCIL.
>> SO THAT'S WHY IT'S ABLE TO MAKE LARGE DESIGNS.
>> YES.
>> OH. I'D NEVER HEARD OF THAT.
STENCILING HAS CERTAINLY COME A LONG WAY, AND I APPRECIATE YOU
BEING HERE TO SHOW US SOME OF THE THINGS TO DO. IT'S STILL
SIMPLE, BUT THERE'S A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW, LIKE TAPING
DOWN THE STENCIL.
>> THAT'S RIGHT, AND YOU CAN ALWAYS EMBELLISH AND ADD TO IT
AND CREATE YOUR ARTWORK WITH EXTRA THINGS.
>> AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR WEBSITE IN CASE PEOPLE WANT TO GET MORE
INFORMATION?
>> FOR MORE DESIGNS THAT ARE AVAILABLE AND IDEAS, YOU CAN GO
TO ROYLCO.COM FOR THAT.
>> OK. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS WITH US TODAY.
>> THANK YOU, SHERYL.
>> MATTHEW, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US TODAY, AND I
LIKE YOUR SHIRT, "THE GUARDIANS OF RESCUE," WHICH IS WHAT WE'RE
GONNA TALK ABOUT. I THOUGHT WE'D START OUT BY TALKING ABOUT
ADOPTING PETS. I THINK MOST OF US--
AT LEAST, I GREW UP ON A FARM AND ALWAYS HAD ANIMALS, MOSTLY
OUTDOOR ANIMALS, BUT I HAVE HAD SOME PETS, AS WELL, BUT I GUESS
I JUST ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WENT TO A PET STORE AND ADOPTED A
PET. HOW DOES YOUR GROUP REALLY PROMOTE THE ADOPTION OF PETS?
>> WE FIND, A LOT OF ANIMALS, ESPECIALLY IN THESE ECONOMIC
TIMES, WIND UP IN SHELTERS FOR REASONS OTHER THAN BEHAVIORAL
ISSUES. FAMILIES CAN'T AFFORD TO STAY IN A PRIVATE DWELLING. SO
THEY HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR DOG.
A LOT OF APARTMENTS DON'T ALLOW PETS. SO A LOT OF THE DOGS IN
SHELTERS, THEY DON'T HAVE TEMPERAMENT ISSUES. THEY'RE
HOUSEBROKEN. THEY KNOW HOW TO SIT, STAY. IT'S LIKE A TURNKEY
DOG. WE DO OUR BEST TO GO IN THERE AND HIGHLIGHT THESE
ANIMALS AND BRING THEM TO PEOPLE'S ATTENTION. WE BRING
THEN TO EVENTS. BIG THING WITH ANIMAL SHELTERS IS, IT'S A VERY
DEPRESSING PLACE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. YOU WALK THROUGH THERE,
AND I LIKEN IT TO A MAXIMUM SECURITY PENITENTIARY FOR DISNEY
CHARACTERS.
>> OH, MY GOSH.
>> YOU SEE ALL THESE BIG, BROWN EYES BEHIND THESE CAGES. THE WAY
A LOT OF ANIMAL SHELTERS ARE SET UP IS, THE CAGES ARE FACING EACH
OTHER, WHICH MEANS THE DOGS, THEY CAN'T INTERACT. SO THEY
CAN'T DO THEIR NORMAL PACK DYNAMIC. SO THEY'RE CONSTANTLY
YELLING AT EACH OTHER.
>> OH, THAT'S WHY IT'S ALWAYS SO LOUD, NOISY, AND BARKING.
>> IT'S NOT CONDUCIVE TO THE ANIMAL'S MENTAL HEALTH OR
WELL-BEING. SO YOU DON'T GET A GOOD IDEA OF WHAT THE ANIMAL'S
TRUE TEMPERAMENT IS WHEN THEY'RE IN THE SHELTER. SO WE BRING THEM
OUT. WE TRY AND PUT THEM IN FOSTER HOMES AND JUST PROMOTE
THEM, SHOW PEOPLE THAT THESE ANIMALS ARE HERE AND ARE
DEFINITELY NOT PROBLEM ANIMALS.
>> UH-HUH, AND YOU MENTIONED TAKING THEM TO SHOWS AND LETTING
PEOPLE BECOME AWARE, BUT YOU ALSO HAVE A WEBSITE, THE
GUARDIANSOFRESCUE.ORG, AND YOU CAN ACTUALLY GO ON THERE AND
LOOK AND MEET A DOG OR A CAT AND SEE, AND THEN WHAT THE PROCESS
IS, YOU ACTUALLY FILL OUT AN APPLICATION FORM?
>> YEAH. FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE
AN ANIMAL, LIST YOUR VET'S, AND ANY RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER WOULD
KNOW THAT IF WE WERE TO CHECK YOUR VET'S, IT'S JUST TO KNOW
THAT WE'RE NOT GONNA GIVE THE DOG TO A MONSTER, SO WE KNOW
THAT YOU'RE A RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER.
>> OH, I SEE.
>> ALSO ON OUR WEBSITE, IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC NEED--A SPECIAL
NEEDS CHILD OR A SPECIFIC CAT YOUR LOOKING FOR, WHATEVER--LET
US KNOW. WE CAN FIND IT. WE'RE A NETWORK OF MANY RESCUES AND MANY
SHELTERS. A LOT OF TIMES, YOU FIND WANT A PUREBRED DOG, I GOT
A PUREBRED BOSTON TERRIER FROM A SHELTER. ACTUALLY, I DO BOSTON
TERRIER RESCUE AS WELL AS REGULAR ANIMAL RESCUE. I'VE
GOTTEN 12, 14 OF THEM OUT OF SHELTERS, AND WE REHAB THEM AND
FIND HOMES FOR THEM. SO WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR--
IF YOU WANT A DOG REMINDS YOU OF WHEN YOU WERE A KID, YOU WANT A
LITTLE YORKIE--WE'LL FIND YOU ONE.
>> THAT'S AMAZING. I WAS SURPRISED BECAUSE I'D NEVER
THOUGHT ABOUT IT, LIVING IN A RURAL AREA WHERE I LIVE, BUT
WHEN THE STORM HIT THE NEW YORK AREA, WE, OF COURSE, WORRIED
ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE AND THE BUILDINGS THAT WERE DESTROYED
AND ALL OF THAT. I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT ALL THOSE ANIMALS THAT
WERE LEFT, AND YOU WORK A LOT WITH THAT.
>> YEAH. IT WAS AN OVERSIGHT IN THAT THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE
IN SUCH DIRE NEED, BUT SINCE WE DO ANIMAL RESCUE, IT'S WHERE WE
HAVE OUR EYES, ANYWAY. WE ACTUALLY STARTED TO WORK WITH
THE RED CROSS AND WITH FEMA, WITH THE OFFICE OF EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT, BRINGING JUST THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF
POUNDS OF PET FOOD. HUNDREDS OF ANIMALS WE BROUGHT TO THE VET'S.
NOW, I REALIZE PEOPLE LOST EVERYTHING. WATER CAME UP OVER
THEIR ROOFS IN SOME CASES.
THEY'RE NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO AFFORD VETERINARY CARE. SO WE
FOUND, ANIMALS WERE JUST LANGUISHING. WE HELPED THESE
PEOPLE OUT. WE BRING THEM TO THE VET, AND WE CAN'T DO THIS--
WE'RE ALL-VOLUNTEER, SO WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT SUPPORT. SO WE
BASICALLY TELL OUR FANS AND OUR FRIENDS, "THIS IS WHAT WE WANT
TO DO. PLEASE HELP US TO DO THIS," OR WE'LL HIGHLIGHT--
WE ACTUALLY SAVED 5 KITTENS FROM A--
THE WOMAN DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE HER HOUSE. SHE DIDN'T WANT TO
LEAVE HER PETS BEHIND. SHE NEEDED TO HAVE INOCULATION
RECORDS TO BRING THE CATS TO THE SHELTER. WELL, THEY WERE
KITTENS, SO SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY OF THEM. SHE SAID SHE WOULD
RATHER DIE THAN LEAVE HER PETS BEHIND, AND, UNFORTUNATELY, SHE
DID.
>> WELL, IN TALKING ABOUT ADOPTING EITHER THROUGH YOUR
ORGANIZATION OR MOST OF US HAVE A LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY THAT WE
COULD ADOPT THROUGH, BUT THERE ARE LOTS AND LOTS OF PETS THAT
ARE KILLED, EUTHANIZED, EVERY YEAR.
>> UNFORTUNATELY, YEAH. THAT IS THE CASE, AND, LIKE I SAID, WITH
THE UNFORTUNATE DYNAMIC IN A SHELTER, YOU TAKE A DOG THAT'S
UNCERTAIN OF ITSELF WHO JUST LOST ITS FAMILY, AND NOW YOU PUT
HIM IN A CAGE, AND HE CAN'T DO A PACK DYNAMIC, AND THEY COME
UNSPOOLED, AND THEY START TO-- >> SO THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'RE NOT
A GOOD ANIMAL TO ADOPT OUT.
>> EXACTLY. SO THAT'S WHY WE TRY TO GET THEM INTO FOSTER HOMES.
WE TRY AND GET THEM OUT OF THE SHELTER ENVIRONMENT. WE TRY TO
GET THEM TO INTERACT WITH OTHER DOGS SO THEY CAN JUST BE
THEMSELVES AND YOU CAN REALLY SEE THAT THIS IS A WONDERFUL,
SWEET ANIMAL. IT'S NOT THIS SCARED ANIMAL TRYING TO FIGURE
OUT ITS PLACE IN A SHELTER.
IT'S REALLY A SAD THING.
>> AND SO IT SORT OF MAKES ECONOMIC SENSE, TOO, THAT IF YOU
WANTED, ESPECIALLY, A PUREBRED, IF YOU GO TO A PET STORE, YOU'RE
GONNA PAY HUNDREDS UP TO THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. IF YOU, ON
THE OTHER HAND, ADOPT ONE FROM YOUR ANIMAL RESCUE, YOU'RE NOT
ONLY HELPING SAVE A LIFE, THE DOG OR CAT'S LIFE, THERE'S ONLY
A SMALL FEE--LIKE WHATEVER THEY CHARGE FOR MAYBE IF THEY'VE HAD
SHOTS, $50, $75, $100 OR SO--AND IT'S SO COMPASSIONATE. WHAT A
GREAT THING TO TEACH, I THINK, CHILDREN, TOO.
>> AND, CONVERSELY, A LOT OF TIMES IN PET STORES, THEY'RE NOT
VETTING RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS, AND IT LEAVES IT OPEN TO WHAT WE
CALL PUPPY MILLS, WHICH ARE PEOPLE WHO JUST BREED ANIMALS EN
MASSE IN VERY INHUMANE CONDITIONS.
>> OH.
>> YOU WIND UP WITH GENETIC PROBLEMS, INBREEDING. SO YOU BUY
A CUTE, LITTLE, FLUFFY DOG FOR $1,000 FROM A PET STORE, THERE'S
A GOOD CHANCE THAT IT WAS BORN OF TORTURE AND IT'S GONNA WIND
UP WITH TERRIBLE MEDICAL PROBLEMS AS IT GROWS OLDER FROM
POOR BREEDING. VERY FEW-- THERE ARE RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS
OUT THERE, AND I COMMEND THEM FOR WHAT THEY'RE DOING, BUT
THEY'RE VERY FEW AND FAR IN BETWEEN, AND WITH THE PET STORE,
IT'S A RACKET. PEOPLE ARE JUST OUT TO MAKE MONEY. THEY'RE NOT
OUT FOR THE BREED.
>> WELL, AND WE'RE CONSIDERED A THROW-AWAY SOCIETY, AND,
UNFORTUNATELY, THAT SOMETIMES APPLIES. IF YOU LIVE IN A RURAL
AREA, MANY, MANY PEOPLE WILL JUST LEAVE AN ANIMAL OR TAKE IT
TO TOWN SO THAT SOMEBODY WILL FEEL SORRY FOR IT, BUT NOT ALL
OF THOSE ANIMALS GET PICKED UP OR SAVED OR PETTED OR CARED FOR
OR LOVED. SO THEY'RE JUST PUT TO DEATH.
>> YEAH. IT'S-- >> WELL, YOUR ORGANIZATION
PEOPLE CAN GO TO ONLINE, BUT I THINK THE IMPORTANT POINT IS TO
THINK ABOUT IF YOU DO WANT A PET AND YOU WANT TO TEACH YOUR
CHILDREN ABOUT CARING FOR ANIMALS, CONSIDER THAT LOCAL
RESCUE UNIT OR A GROUP LIKE YOURS.
>> ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY, AND WE'RE BASED OUT OF LONG ISLAND,
BUT WE DO WORK ALL AROUND THE NATION. WE ACTUALLY DO WORK
INTERNATIONALLY. WE WORK WITH THE ANIMAL SHELTERS IN
AFGHANISTAN AND BRING DOGS BACK FOR SOLDIERS...
>> OH, REALLY?
AND IF, IN YOUR AREA, YOU WANT TO FIND AN ANIMAL OR A SPECIFIC
TYPE, CONTACT US. WE ARE CONNECTED WITH ALL SHELTERS AND
ANIMAL RESCUES AROUND THE NATION.
>> SO COULD I START AN ORGANIZATION? CAN SOMEBODY
WATCHING? COULD THEY START A GUARDIANS OF RESCUE ORGANIZATION
IN THEIR TOWN?
>> ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY. WE ENCOURAGE IT. LIKE I SAID, NO
COMPETITION IN ANIMAL RESCUE.
>> NO.
>> WE'RE NOT OUT SELLING A BRAND. WE'RE TRYING TO PROMOTE
COMPASSION. THE MORE PEOPLE THAN BACK US UP, WE CAN BACK UP, AND
THAT'S THE THING. LIKE I SAID, IT'S ALL-VOLUNTEER, SO IT'S ALL
ON OUR FRIENDS AND OUR FANS.
SOMEONE IN MISSOURI WANTS TO START A GUARDIANS OF RESCUE
CHAPTER OR A JUNIOR GUARDIANS OF RESCUE, LET US KNOW. WE'LL BACK
YOU UP, YEAH, AND WE'LL CONNECT WITH ALL THE LOCAL
MUNICIPALITIES AND SHELTERS.
AGAIN, IT'S ALL FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ANIMALS.
>> WELL, AND IT'S CERTAINLY IT'S NOT THAT YOU'D EVER RUN OUT OF
PRODUCT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY ANIMALS THAT DO NEED TO BE
RESCUED. THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING, SOMETHING I KNEW
NOTHING ABOUT. I APPRECIATE YOU COMING AND TALKING TO ME TODAY.
>> WELL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
>> JOHNNY, IT'S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU COME. I
APPRECIATE IT.
>> I LOVE COMING BACK AND SHOWING YOU SOME NEW LITTLE
KITCHEN TRICKS.
>> WELL, WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MY MOTHER FRIED EVERYTHING.
WE HAD FRIED PORK CHOPS, CHICKEN FRIED STEAK.
>> OH, YEAH. THOSE WERE THE GOOD, OLD DAYS.
>> EVERYTHING WAS FRIED, AND FRYING KIND OF GOT A BAD
REPUTATION. SO TODAY WE'RE GOING TO KIND OF DISPEL THAT.
>> AND IT REALLY DID, AND IF YOU FRY AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE,
IDEALLY, THINGS SHOULD BE NICE AND CRISPY AND NOT GREASY,
AND I THINK WHAT'S HAPPENED IS, HOME COOKS--
THERE ARE SOME HOME FRYING POTS THAT YOU CAN BUY THAT DON'T GET
TO THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE...
>> OH.
>> AND IF YOUR OIL IS NOT AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE, THAT'S WHEN
YOU HAVE GREASY FOOD.
>> IT SOAKS UP ALL THAT GREASE.
>> YEAH. IT SINKS TO THE BOTTOM.
SO IN MY COOKBOOK "COOKING WITH JOHNNY VEE," I DID A WHOLE
CHAPTER ON ARTICHOKES BECAUSE I LOVE ARTICHOKES AND I LOVE FRESH
ARTICHOKES. I THINK ARTICHOKES ARE GREAT FROZEN. THEY'RE GREAT
CANNED. SO I CAME UP WITH AN ARTICHOKE FRITTER WHICH WOULD BE
GREAT FOR WATCHING FOOTBALL GAMES WITH AS A SNACK OR AN
APPETIZER, AND WE'RE GONNA USE CANNED ARTICHOKES TODAY, AND
WE'RE GONNA MAKE A SIMPLE BEER BATTER TO USE.
>> AND YOU SAID WE COULD USE FRESH OR FROZEN OR CANNED WITH
THIS.
>> YEAH, AND JUST DRAIN THEM WELL, OR IF THEY ARE FROZEN, I
USUALLY THAW THEM TO LET THAT EXTRA MOISTURE OUT. SO LET'S,
FIRST OF ALL, TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BEER BATTER. SO BEER
BATTER IS A NICE, CRUNCHY BATTER. I DON'T LIKE A BATTER
THAT'S TOO THICK. I LIKE TO SEE WHAT'S INSIDE THAT BATTER.
SO IF YOU USE A VERY THICK FLOUR-BASED BATTER, YOU DON'T
SEE ALL THAT. SO THIS IS A NICE, THIN BATTER WHICH IS GONNA ALLOW
THE FLAVORS OF THE FOOD TO SHINE THROUGH, AND A COUPLE NOTES
ABOUT THE BEER YOU USE. ANY FLAVOR BEER WILL WORK. JUST
DON'T USE A DARK BEER BECAUSE IT TENDS TO MAKE YOUR BATTER
TOO DARK...
>> OH, IT WOULD. UH-HUH.
>> AND THEN YOUR FOOD LOOKS OVERCOOKED, EVEN THOUGH IT
ISN'T. SO WE'VE JUST GOT SOME FLOUR HERE. WE'RE GONNA ACTUALLY
ADD SOME CORN STARCH. SO IT'S A MIXTURE OF FLOUR AND CORN
STARCH, AND THEN I ACTUALLY LIKE TO ADD A LITTLE BIT OF--
THIS IS ACTUALLY TOASTED AND GROUND CUMIN AND A LITTLE BIT OF
CAYENNE PEPPER.
>> MM, FOR A LITTLE POP.
>> JUST A LITTLE POP AND IS GONNA GIVE OUR BATTER A NICE,
LITTLE EXTRA FLAVOR.
>> AND YOU SAID THIS SAME BATTER CAN BE USED ON OTHER FOODS, TOO.
>> OTHER THINGS. I ACTUALLY USE THIS ON FISH AND CHIPS AND ALSO
ON MY CHILE RELLENOS SO YOU CAN REALLY GET THEM. NOW, WHEN YOU
MEASURE YOUR BEER, SHERYL, YOU WANT TO TIP YOUR MEASURING CUP
UP AND THEN POUR YOUR BEER SLOW ENOUGH SO THAT YOU DO GET A FULL
CUP OF LIQUID.
>> AND NOT SO MUCH FOAM TAKING UP THE SPACE. ALL RIGHT.
>> NOT TOO MUCH FOAM. YOU CAN ADD THE FOAM SO WE'VE GOT A
LITTLE BIT OF FOAM ABOVE IT, BUT MAKE SURE YOU'VE GOT A CUP OF
LIQUID. IF YOU DON'T LIKE TO COOK WITH BEER, YOU CAN ABSOLUTE
SUBSTITUTE JUST SODA WATER AND USE THE SAME AMOUNT.
>> BECAUSE YOU WANT THAT EFFERVESCENT.
>> YEAH.
>> THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO MAKE IT FLUFFY.
>> THE LITTLE BIT OF BUBBLING IS GONNA MAKE THIS BATTER. SO WE'RE
GONNA WHISK THIS, AND THAT BEER WAS COLD. IT DOESN'T EVEN
NECESSARILY NEED TO BE. IF YOU'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF A
LEFTOVER BEER, CAP IT SO THAT YOU STILL GOT THE SPARKLING, AND
THEN WE'RE GONNA WHISK THAT.
NOW, SOMETIMES, DEPENDING ON THE FLOUR YOU'RE USING AND EVEN THE
CORN STARCH A LITTLE BIT, THAT STILL LOOKS A LITTLE BIT THICK.
SO I'M GONNA GO AHEAD AND ADD A LITTLE MORE BEER TO THIS JUST TO
THIN IT OUT A LITTLE MORE.
>> AND THAT'S LIKE COOKING. YOU JUST SORT OF GET THE FEEL, LIKE
MAKING GRAVY.
>> EXACTLY, AND WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT YOUR PANCAKES, YOU'RE
THINKING, "OH, THAT LOOKS TOO THICK."
>> UH-HUH.
>> SO THAT IS BETTER. THAT REALLY IS MORE LIKE A THIN
PANCAKE BATTER. WHOOP.
>> OK.
>> OK. SO WE'RE GONNA LET THAT REST FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN
TALKING ABOUT OUR FRYING.
SO WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS JUST PLAIN VEGETABLE OIL.
>> THAT'S, LIKE, IN A WOK?
>> THAT'S IN A WOK, AND I ACTUALLY LIKE TO USE A WOK FOR
FRYING BECAUSE IT'S NICE AND DEEP. WOKS TYPICALLY HEAT UP
QUICKLY. SO IT WILL HEAT UP THE OIL QUICKLY, AND THIS IS REALLY
AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT TO HAVE WHEN YOU'RE FRYING. THIS
IS YOUR FRY THERMOMETER OR YOUR CANDY THERMOMETER, AND YOU CAN
JUST LAY IT IN THERE. NOW, IN HIGH ALTITUDE--OR IN ANY
ALTITUDE, REALLY--ANYTHING ABOVE 3,000 FEET, WE ACTUALLY LOWER
THE TEMPERATURE WE FRY TO.
SO IN SANTA FE, WHERE I LIVE, IT'S 7,000 FEET.
>> OH. UH-HUH.
>> SO WE FRY AT 350. TYPICALLY AT SEA LEVEL, YOU FRY WITH YOUR
TEMPERATURE AT 375. SO I'M GONNA GET THIS UP TO 350, WHICH IT'S
ALMOST THERE, AND THEN WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT FRYING, SHERYL,
FRYING IS EVAPORATION OF MOISTURE. SO IF YOU'RE NOT SURE
HOW LONG TO FRY SOMETHING FOR, BASICALLY, ONCE THE BUBBLES
STOP, YOU'RE DONE FRYING BECAUSE THE MOISTURE EVAPORATION IS
FINISHED. SO LET ME JUST MAKE A LITTLE PATH HERE. I'LL SAVE THAT
FOR LATER--HEH HEH--AND WE ARE RIGHT AT 350. I'M GONNA GO
LITTLE BIT HIGHER SINCE WE'RE NOT AT 7,000 FEET.
>> AND YOU DO WANT TO WATCH BECAUSE AS YOU PUT FOOD IN, THE
TEMPERATURE LOWERS. SO YOU WANT TO KEEP IT CONSISTENT.
>> YEAH. YOU WANT TO TURN IT BACK UP TO MAKE SURE YOU GET
BACK UP TO THAT TEMPERATURE.
THAT'S CALLED RECOVERY TIME. YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR OIL
RECOVERS.
>> OH, I SEE.
>> SO WE'VE GOT OUR ARTICHOKE HEARTS. THESE ARE SORT OF
PARTIALLY QUARTERED. SOME ARE QUARTERED, AND BASICALLY, WHAT
YOU'RE GONNA DO--I DON'T EVEN MIND DOING THE WHOLE
ONES--YOU'RE JUST GONNA GIVE YOURSELF A LIGHT COATING...
>> MM-HMM.
>> AND THEN GET YOUR LITTLE BOWL CLOSE TO THE FRYER THERE, AND
DON'T DO A BELLY FLOP.
>> NO. DON'T FLOP IT IN THERE.
>> DON'T DIVE INTO THE OIL BECAUSE YOU WILL--
>> YOU'LL SUFFER.
>> YOU'LL GET SPLASHED, AND SEPARATE THEM A LITTLE BIT.
OTHERWISE, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE ONE BIG ARTICHOKE...
>> BLOB.
>> FRITTER. YEAH...
>> FRITTER. YEAH.
>> AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THEY'RE BUBBLING NICELY.
>> THAT'S ALWAYS A GOOD TEST, TOO, IF YOUR OIL IS AT THE RIGHT
TEMPERATURE.
>> EXACTLY. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE THERMOMETER, YOU CAN THROW A
LITTLE PIECE OF BREAD IN THERE.
>> UH-HUH.
>> ONE TIME, I HAD SOMEBODY TELL ME THEY'D THROW SOME WATER IN
THE FRYER. THAT'S NOT A GOOD-- >> NO. HA HA HA!
>> THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING.
SO I'M JUST GONNA FRY A FEW OF THESE. NOW, ONCE THESE ARE DONE,
WE COULD HOLD THEM IN A 200-DEGREE OVEN JUST TO KEEP
THEM WARM, AND WE'RE GONNA LET THOSE GET NICE AND BROWN.
>> AND YOU'RE RIGHT. WITH THE WOK BEING ANGLED ON THE SIDES,
YOU CAN SEE IT.
>> WE'RE GETTING AS LITTLE BIT OF A SHOWER HERE, BUT SO IT
REALLY WILL DEPEND ON WHAT YOU'RE FRYING THAT WILL
DETERMINE HOW LONG IT TAKES.
SO MUSHROOMS ARE VERY SPONGY.
THEY USUALLY COOK PRETTY QUICKLY. OF COURSE, FISH IS
THICKER AND DEEPER. SO YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT GETS
COMPLETELY COOKED THROUGH.
>> UH-HUH.
>> SO, ONCE AGAIN, JUST DIP, LET THEN DRAIN A LITTLE BIT, AND
THEN IN THEY GO, AND, AS YOU CAN SEE, THEY'RE STARTING TO GET
NICE AND GOLD...
>> THAT'S PRETTY. UH-HUH.
>> WHICH YOU REALLY WANT THEM TO GET NICE AND GOLDEN. I ALSO USE
THIS FOR ONION RINGS.
>> IT WOULD BE GOOD ONION RINGS.
>> SO SLICE YOUR ONIONS UP, DIP THEM IN THE BATTER, HOLD THEM
UP, DRAIN THEM. I'VE FRIED SHRIMP WITH THIS. SO IT'S REALLY
AN ALL-PURPOSE.
>> NOW, DO YOU SAVE THE OIL WHEN YOU GET THROUGH?
>> GOOD QUESTION. I DO SAVE THE OIL. I'LL STRAIN IT, GET RID OF
ANY OF THE SOLIDS THAT ARE LEFT.
AFTER IT'S COOLED, PUT IT BACK IN THE BOTTLE. THEN I
REFRIGERATE IT AND THEN HEAT IT UP, AS LONG AS YOU HAVEN'T DONE
SOMETHING REALLY STRONG IN THERE. IF YOU'VE DONE FISH, YOU
MAY NOT WANT TO USE IT FOR A DESSERT. AND THEN OUR SAUCE HERE
TODAY IS ACTUALLY HORSERADISH...
>> MM.
>> SOUR CREAM, LEMON JUICE, SALT, AND PEPPER, AND WE'RE
GONNA USE THAT AS A DIP FOR OUR ARTICHOKES, AND WE'LL FINISH
THESE AS SOON AS THEY COME OUT OF THE FRYER. WE'LL GIVE THEM A
LITTLE KOSHER SALT JUST TO SEASON. SO YOU CAN SEE, SHERYL--
EVEN YOU CAN HEAR-- >> IT'S LIKE POPCORN.
>> THE BUBBLES ARE SLOWING DOWN, AND THEY'RE JUST ABOUT DONE.
IF YOU REMEMBER WHEN WE FIRST PUT THEM IN, THEY WERE BIG
BUBBLES...
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND I ALWAYS SAY, ONCE YOU'VE GOT LITTLER BUBBLES WITH LESS...
>> SPLATTERING?
>> POPPING, YEAH, YOU'RE IN GOOD SHAPE. OK.
>> IT'S NICE TO KNOW, THOUGH, THAT YOU COULD COOK THESE
EARLIER AND KEEP THEM BECAUSE YOU DON'T NECESSARILY WANT TO
SPEND YOUR TIME IN THE KITCHEN IF PEOPLE ARE WAITING ON YOU.
>> YEAH, AND IT'S NICE WHEN YOU'RE GETTING DRESSED FOR
DINNER, YOU CAN HAVE THESE ALL DONE. SO LET ME JUST DRAIN
THOSE. DON'T THOSE LOOK BEAUTIFUL?
>> MM-HMM.
>> SO THEY'RE NICE AND GOLDEN BROWN. LET THAT DRIP A LITTLE
BIT.
>> YEAH. THAT'S ANOTHER KEY TO FRYING.
>> YEAH. IT REALLY IS. DRAIN IT WELL JUST ON PAPER TOWELS.
>> MM-HMM.
>> QUICK, LITTLE SPRINKLE OF SALT, BOOM, AND THEN WE'RE GONNA
PUT OUR SAUCE DOWN FIRST...
>> OH.
>> GIVE OURSELVES A LITTLE PUDDLE OF SAUCE, AND THEN WE'VE
GOT OUR ARTICHOKES. BE CAREFUL.
THESE ARE HOT...
>> WOW, HOW PRETTY.
>> AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW WE LOVE CILANTRO.
>> MM-HMM.
>> WE'LL JUST GARNISH THIS WITH A LITTLE FRESH CILANTRO HERE ON
TOP. SO THAT'S OUR BEER BATTER ARTICHOKE FRITTERS...
>> OOH, IT LOOKS GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT.
>> WITH A HORSERADISH SAUCE.
REALLY. SO LET'S TRY THOSE, SHERYL. JUST BE CAREFUL. THEY'RE
GONNA BE HOT.
>> ALL RIGHT. WELL, I SURE APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE
BECAUSE IT'S NICE TO KNOW THAT FRYING IS STILL OK IF YOU DO IT
RIGHT.
IT MAKES LIFE INTERESTING, AND COME VISIT ME AT MY COOKING
SCHOOL IN SANTA FE.
>> I SURELY WILL. THANK YOU, JOHNNY.
>> THANK YOU. LET'S TRY THESE.
>> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE
LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO COOK WITH DRIED BEANS, SHOW HOW TO
MAKE BOUTIQUE TEA TOWELS, AND DEMONSTRATE MAKING AN EASY BY
FABULOUS FRAME. ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT
HOW NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS BEANS ARE. THEY'RE NOT ONLY
VERSATILE, BUT A GOOD PROTEIN SUBSTITUTE IN CERTAIN DIETS.
ANOTHER GUEST IS A DESIGNER, AND SHE'S GOING TO SHOW HOW TO MAKE
NO-SEW BOUTIQUE TEA TOWELS USING AN ADHESIVE FOR THE APPLIQUE
TECHNIQUE. THESE CAN BE MADE AT A FRACTION OF THE COST OF THOSE
YOU'LL FIND IN BOUTIQUE STORES, AND FINALLY, WE'LL MEET A
DESIGNER AND CRAFTER WHO WILL SHOW HOW TO MAKE FABULOUS FRAMES
USING SCRAPBOOKING PAPER AND EMBELLISHMENTS. ALL OF THESE
TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT "CREATIVE LIVING" SHOW.
