A Peek Inside our Kitchen

You may have been reading this blog of ours for days, weeks, or even years (yay! and thank you!) Sure, we post a picture here and there, or a video of our hands… but after all that time I figured it was about time we gave you a bit more of a peek inside our kitchen. Let you get to know the people behind the words and pictures and recipes that you see here every week.

As we’ve been wanting to do more with video on the blog, we took a digital video class this fall at a local art school. Just for fun. And as our class project, we decided to create an “about video” for the blog. For you. So rather than just reading about us, you actually get to see and hear us in all our awkward glory.

You’ll have to excuse our quirks, like the lumpy cake batter, mixer explosion, side talking and begging cats. Because that’s who we are, really and truly. No gimmicks. No special effects. Just us.

I hope you like it (and us!)

On, and if you’re hungry after watching that, check out the Classic Reuben Sandwich recipe and the recipe for the Yellow Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting that we prepare in the video.
