This episode of Bits & Pieces was a special one because it was a collaboration between us and Lktoepher from 6kidsProductions. We know her as Lee. She was one of our backers from our Kickstarter project and producing an episode of our show was a reward we offered. Making an easier and healthier version of Pad Thai was Lee’s idea, so if you liked this episode, you have her to thank!
We thought it would be cool for Lee to make a cameo in the actual video. So we asked for a video clip of herself asking me what she wanted to learn how to make. She was awesome enough to send us her bloopers as well! Of course we couldn’t let that go to waste so we included them in this behind the scenes video of our Easy Shrimp Pad Thai episode:
I’ll be honest… this one was a hard one for us to shoot. The recipe itself is easy to make. But shooting it was another story. It was during Daylight Savings, and that pesky little time change threw me for a loop! We also had a family celebration with relatives flying in from California, DC, and Korea! One of our cousins stayed with us for a couple days, and we were busy hosting.
But on top of it, I was recipe testing constantly for the next couple videos, because we’re always simultaneously working on multiple videos. But that particular week, I was having a rough time. It was one of those moments where things weren’t coming out right and I just felt emotionally drained from constantly failing.
