I'm so happy to see Gaby in one of Claire's videos! 😍 Also, I love sweet empanadas more than the savory ones. I normally use more local fillings from here such as caramelized bananas, macapuno preserves (mutant coconut), and ube. Will definitely try apples soon, they absolutely look scrumptious. 🤤

was the Doug theme song implicit or explicit inspiration for the intro? to me, in any case, it's a bit reminiscent of that theme song. cute intro though

Fell in love with the Empanada on a trip to South America. That traditional light flakey crust is key. I had really only had the mainstream US ones before and they are basically crap.

Gaby is the most positive person ever. She’s the teacher everyone needs when they first cooking/baking. Claire you did a fantastic job and I know it’s hard learning something new when you’re left handed. It took me a hot minute to learn how to load suture for some of surgeons who are left handed.

Surprised that Claire doesn't have a business account for Zoom. Should be considered a business expense. Maybe she doesn't use it enough to justify it? Interesting to me regardless.

Claire, since you are left handed maybe you should start the crimping on the opposite corner of the empanada. That would probably work on your favor.

This was so joyful! I love Claire (as a Missouri girl myself) and I’ll watch 30 minutes a week of her making space in her fridge if that’s what’s on offer, but I do miss her interaction with the regular guest stars from the test kitchen. So it is MARVELOUS to have Gaby here for this! As a left-handed person who has struggled all my life learning manual fine-motor tasks from right handed people (my grandmother teaching 8-year-old me to crochet is a pivotal and cherished memory), I was watching this and coaching Claire, muttering repeatedly, louder and louder, “fold the opposite direction” building to a crescendo “you have to do it BACKWARDS, Claire, fold the opposite direction!” She got it in the end and they looked beautiful, but I felt that struggle.

Because you’re a leftie, you have to start crimping from the other end (you started from the same end, that’s why it probably felt so weird). It’s going to be easier for you. 😉 Yes, you got it here 22:39 ...bravo Claire!
