Today, we continue offering albums by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, one of the psychedelic era’s most electrified acid bands.  Our selection for today is their fourth and final album, entitled, “Bull of the Woods,” which came out in July 1969 and was a great album; however this, the band fell apart due to insanity, drug-induced psychosis, murder, and imprisonment.  It would be many years before founding member, Roky Erickson, reformed the band. Please go to Amazon.com right now and BUY this stellar album by using the convenient link above!

908th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz

Bakersfield, CA, 05-17-2013 F: Greetings and welcome to the Friday and Weekend Editions of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day!  I must say that last week, my fellow Hispanic, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a very strong man and a good example as to what REAL Hispanic Americans can achieve through hard work and determination, impressed me.  Yes, he is a Republican but I have to say that the man has courage, valor, and an uncanny ability to do what many other Republicans seem to have fear doing.  One of the reasons I am a lifelong Democrat is the fact that my parents were obviously Democrats and that where I came from, Los Angeles, California, was mostly a Democratic bastion in a somewhat Republican state.  Now, however, you would never know that California was ever anything else than far left liberal but you can thank the nonstop illegal immigration that has transformed my state into a BLUE one.  

The Flag of California

I will never change parties but I do not have a problem saying that I do cross party lines and vote for politicians whom I believe have the country’s best interests in their heart.  I have come to realize that California’s standard of living has declined and that a once prosperous state is now not so prosperous and the reason is this: they have had open arms, they have welcomed hordes of illegals into every corner and over the course of time, and they have achieved supermajority status in the Assembly and the Senate.  Friends and family who remain behind in the tarnished once-Golden State now tell me that the standard of living declined a long time ago.  The wages that professional chefs once earned are sadly somewhere behind us.  What's worse is this: a chef’s ability to earn top dollar has disappeared, too, unless, of course, one is self-employed.

President Barack Hussein Obama

This is what happens:  in the old days, a cook could support a family of four and have benefits, too.  Now, however, illegals take over one restaurant and then go out and work part-time somewhere else.  Say they work eight-hour shifts at their main job, they then go out and get a job at a coffee shop and two guys will split an eight hour shift and do it seven days a week and for NO benefits.  You had better believe the employer is delighted with that, he seeks more of their fellow 'immigrants' and soon every single low-end restaurant or chain operation is going to employ illegals rather than citizens.  Where they get their papers from or how they manage to pass them through the system is beyond me, all I know is that it’s ongoing and never stops.  Now, our President is going to legalize another 11-20 million illegals.  Kiss the state of California goodbye, it’s over and done, the fork’s in it, the meat is cooked, no one will ever have another job of worth anywhere or anytime soon. 

The Flag of Washington State

So, you see, it amuses me that here in Bakersfield, we have yet another Latino Democrat running for the state senate to replace another Latino who took a job with Chevron-Texaco.  All she talks about is raising the minimum wage and as an employer let me tell you this: I am hiring no more Americans to fill low-end jobs if I have to pay them near $9 an hour that is going to kill business even more.  Thankfully, I do not live and work here anymore, as most of you know or should know, I live and work in Mukilteo, Washington, and there, we have not gotten quite as bad as California.  At some point, I suspect the illness inhabiting California is going to creep northward but for now, I enjoy things as they are.  People of California, you need to wake up and find leaders like Ted Cruz, this man has no problem taking it to the U.S. Senate’s leadership, both Republican and Democrat, something this country needs very much. 

The Flag of Mexico

Today, we are going to have a photo-fest, today, tomorrow, and Sunday.  We are going to look at a variety of box cake mixes and the products we make using them.  There is nothing wrong with using box mixes, let’s face it: most large bakeries—such as Smith’s here in Bakersfield, California—has their own formulated mixes.  This allows them to maintain consistency in the quality of their baked goods and saves their bakers a great deal of time making the products.  This is what you and I are going to do today.  Sure, call me a smuck, a bum, a loser but this is how it is and there’s nothing wrong with it.  Besides, if your operation is one that uses illegals to do the lower level jobs, then you need something the ignorant bastards cannot screw up, ergo, BOX CAKE MIXES!  Today, we are looking at Cherry Chip Cupcakes using one of our white buttercream frostings!

Betty Crocker Cherry Chip Cake Mix

Here is a good formula for making the perfect frosting for Betty Crocker’s Cherry Chip cake mixes, it’s beautiful to behold, tastes wonderful, and is easy to make.   Always use Torani’s products, they are the best of the best and make everyone else’s products look like crap, my friends!

(#1778) CHERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

 


Here’s a variation on one of the flavored buttercream frostings, this one designed for use with Betty Crocker Cherry Chip cake mix or for that matter—homemade cherry chip cakes!  Creamy, flavorful, use nothing but Torani’s products for the best flavorings and you are going to be renowned throughout your region of the country!  Torani’s syrups have long been exclusive to bars and cocktail lounges but I have brought them into the realm of professional chefs!

Yield:  1 quart +  / Mis-en-place: 20 minutes:
 

 


Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
1.5
Cups
Soft butter
 
2.75-3
#
Powdered sugar
 
1
Teaspoon
Salt
 
1
Tablespoon
Vanilla extract
 
1
Tablespoon
Torani’s Cherry Syrup
 
.5
Cup
Half-n-Half
 
1-3
Drops +
Red food coloring
 

 


Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work! Using a Kitchen Aid mixer equipped with a paddle attachment, beat the butter at medium speed until it become light and fluffy.  Then, add the salt, vanilla extract, and cherry syrup, beating well at medium speed to blend everything well.  Stop, scrape down the mixing bowl and the paddle, and commence beating again for about 30 seconds.  

2.     Next, begin scaling in the powdered sugar along the side of the bowl—slowly, gently, and patiently—until the mixture incorporates it. Stop mixing, scrape down both the bowl and paddle, and commence the mixing process once again.  It will take some time as it will stiffen and then lighten as the paddle continues rotating around the inside of the bowl.  As it does so, begin scaling in the half-and-half—with the addition of the red food color—along the sides to lighten the frosting taking care to add just as much as it needs, possibly NOT all of it depending upon time of the year, the humidity, and the kitchen temperature.  Just add the cream until the frosting is light, fluffy, and ready to spread.

3.     Spread the frosting with the aid of a rubber spatula or a spreader always taking care to dip it into warm water and then wiping it off as you spread the frosting.  The ideal way in which, to spread the frosting is to apply almost all of it in several mounds atop the sheet cake or individually atop cupcakes.  If doing a sheet cake, spread these mounds out and away from one another until they intersect but NEVER spread the frosting back in upon itself!  Doing it that way is a sure fire way to incorporate cake crumbs back into the frosting, nothing anyone in the business considers being “professional.”


4.     Always use it at room temperature and refrigerate leftovers in a covered container.  It will remain fresh for 2-3 days but after that use it or lose it.  

My Cherry Buttercream Frosting is good for everything from cakes, brownies, or for whatever else you might have need of it.  Keep this recipe in your personal recipe books, as you will be using it repeatedly.

Okay—that is going to do it for today, amigos, we now move on the conclusion of today’s essay, see you at the finish line!

Box 20669, Bakersfield, CA 93390-0669.  We obviously do not pay anything but give YOU full byline and that, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.  We want as many people who want to write to be able to do so and we believe that by presenting a forum for our fellow chefs, we are doing something for our beloved industry.  We love diversity and hope to add new and different authors to our pantheon of chefs, food and beverage directors, and culinary professionals.  Come on and join us, it will be fun!

ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS

          We have touted the AARC Technology Company here in Bakersfield, CA, and must add the Nerds on Call.com folks.  Without them keeping our blog up-and-running, there is no telling where we would be now.  We have a great many problematic issues here at the AICP-END because even with the best security systems in the world, malware and other terrible fecal materials manage to penetrate the blogsite.  Do yourself a favor, hire the best, and note, you can have online help via a remote button on your desktop for just $25 per month!  Get in contact with the Nerds now!  Here’s another note: do NOT do business with Galkos Construction, Inc., those people are nothing but crooks as if you lease your system, you will never pay it off, plus you have to pay them for excess energy produced by your system, the electric company does not buy all of it nor do they!  AVOID GCI AT ALL COSTS; DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE CROOKS!

THE PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDS OF THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS

God bless each single one of you amongst our fan base!

LIVE

          One of the things I enjoy visiting whenever I come to Bakersfield, California, is the chance to get out to the bars and restaurants here in the city.  One of the things we enjoy doing is catching the shows here at the Bright House Amphitheater, the Fox Theater, or even the Rabobank Arena downtown.  Stinkbug usually provides tickets to our families, too, and last week Saturday, we saw a band called Hotel California, a tribute band featuring the life and times of the Eagles.  You know, they are one of the bands, which I never had the chance to hear live on stage so I went to the gig with an open mind.  I must say, blown away was I; the people were amazing musicians and did a spectacular job in a very intimate setting.  It was the night before Mother’s Day, customers filled the place to the gills, and the music made me think of what it must have been like to see this iconic American band.  It also opened my eyes to consider seeing other tribute bands thinking that they, too, must be pretty damned good if they are going to mimic someone else and do it well.  I urge all of you if you have the opportunity to see this very fine group to do yourselves a favor and do so!                                                               

BULL OF THE WOODS  

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower. What's more, why not spend some money and purchase an album by either Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention or Thirteenth Floor Elevators and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise!  Amazon.com is one of the greatest—if not the ultimate greatest!—online department stores in which, one can find almost everything on the planet.  We love them and they love us and we want all of you to visit them daily, take advantage of their deals on everything from kitchen equipment to cookbooks, CDs, DVDs, and everything else a person could want.  Everything you buy from them puts money into our pockets, which allows us to keep this fine blog up-and-running 24/7/365!  God bless America and God bless Amazon.com!

Muchas gracias, buen amigos!

This is a shot of me taken when I was a young cook back in the early 1960's. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.

El Chilote writes from Mukilteo, Washington.
