So in my last update to this Road to Certification, i was saying that my next goal would be the Certified Dietary Manager (CDM) and Certified Food Protection Professional (CFPP) certifications offered through the Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professionals (ANFP). And i would be lying through my teeth if i said it was some kind of cakewalk to go through this in the least.
So a small update to the main website. I've added a FAQ which you'll find in the footer at the bottom of any of the pages on the site. It's small (well, kitchenacademic.com is small, so that's just natural, heh) but as things go on, i'll update it with more questions that are asked frequently.
In some other news though, I have scheduled my Certified Dietary Manager test within the next couple of weeks. I think i initially wanted to do the ACF tests first because i stink with classroom tests. But because of scheduling and such, i went with this one first. As i continue studying, i'm hoping i can report back with another one of my goals for the year accomplished. I WOULD have put such info in a Road To Certification post...but this is all there would have been to it...and that's not a post, that's more like a post-it note.
Hey, all! I've been tinkering with a lot of things on the site and the most recent change is coming to the way recipes are structured on kitchenacademic.com in the future. Whenever i read one of the print recipes, it didn't really flow well, so i spent some time redesigning one of the pages. If you please would, scroll down to the 'Freckled Berry-Mint Lemonade' recipe and look the page over.
My main concern was making the pages look and flow better and giving more of what you want to see in a recipe to you. I guess in even shorter terms, providing more value to your time. So here' s what's changed...
I would hope that with some of these changes, the recipes that i will post from here on in (as well as the recipes in the past that i intend to go back and edit) will be much more valuable to readers. But i need your comments on this. Please go to the recipe here, view the setup and leave your comments below about how it works for you. Thanks your your time, peoples!
Just a heads up that there will be some changes upcoming to the website that i'll be testing. It shouldn't be anything that'll interrupt service much, if at all. But I wanted to let you all know. Thanks for your patience.
So for those that don't know, i like to believe myself as a fairly computer and technology literate man. I can work my phone (somewhat) and know how to work my computer (at least until i got to Windows 8). Just about a day ago now, a report came out that YouTube was looking to revamp their online streaming services to compete with who might be the undisputed king of streaming services, Twitch.
So this morning, i went down to my local Tri-C campus (That's Cuyahoga Community College, typically shortened to Tri-C for those of you not from the area) to take a test. This one was for the Internationally Certified Food Safety Manager Certification from the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals. I'll let the paper do the rest of the talking for me...
Eggplant is a vegetable that is so versatile but it's never much in the spotlight. Always a bridesmaid, if that's the correct saying...But give this recipe a try.
This salad uses popcorn chicken for it's crunch (hench the name 'crunch salad') but could easily be substituted with a grilled, baked or sauteed chicken for a less calorie laden option. Otherwise, this is a salad that satisfies plenty of appetites.
So i said my main goal was get certification with the ACF and the ANFP. I found that the ANFP offered a practice test as well for their certification and (while im waiting on them to ship me the books i ordered from them) decided to take a crack at it. Yep...
