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.

  1. Homemade goodies?!? Love it and love your blog! Thank you guys!

  2. Love coming here for inspiration and now a chance for yummy stuff!

  3. As a college student living in the dorms, without a kitchen :( treats like these don’t come along too often!

  4. I truly enjoyed seeing how you two really are! As I watched I was struck by how much you remind me of my husband and I(granted we’re much older). I’m the messy tornado, and my husband neatly cleans up after himself(and me). My husband is also the weird one and I giggle a lot at his weirdness and I love him for it! That and a lot of love has kept us happily together for 35 years. Here’s hoping you get to enjoy your cooking together for at least that long. Thank you for letting us see just a glimpse of what life in your kitchen is like. Just to let you know, I’ve taken advantage of several of your recipes with great results. Please keep them coming!
