Dots (Daily Outfit Video)

Thanks for your kind remarks and constructive feedback on my first video. It seems that my camera goes in and out of focus when I film (even though it's on a tripod) so this go around I used my computer. I think this is better in terms of the picture quality but the sound might be a bit inconsistent.
Let me know what you think. Do you like videos better than the regular posts? I like them because it's easier to show more detail than it is with a still photo but I'd be interested in your opinion. 
If you view the video in YouTube, I leave comments there with the links to what I'm wearing but in case you don't, here are the links from there.
What I'm wearing:
RED Valentino blouse - http://rstyle.me/n/uj9xneh3w

Smoked Fish Dip

I spent my teenage years in Jupiter, Florida where there's a local restaurant chain called The Alehouse (in this case The Jupiter Alehouse). Whenever we go home to Florida, we hit The Alehouse and order the fish dip. It's one of my favorite things to eat so whenever I see it on a menu somewhere else, I try it. One of the best versions I've had is from The Ordinary in Charleston, SC, which by the way, is one of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. The Ordinary calls it a fish paté and I think they took a wee bit of offense when I called it a fish dip. 

One of the food blogs that I read regulary recently did a version of the fish dip (recipe here) so my sister and I made it for a Thanksgiving appetizer. We bought a smoked whitefish at Zabar's which meant that we were starting out with one really good smoked whitefish. We followed the recipe pretty closely and the only thing I would change is use a little less lemon but other than that, it was really delicious.  It's an easy recipe as long as you can get your hands on some good smoked fish.
