Asian Lettuce Wraps : Behind the Scenes

This is our LAST behind the scenes for Season 3 and it flew by so quickly!  I decided to end with Asian Lettuce Wraps out of necessity.  We just had a bunch of these ingredients in the fridge already because I was busy recipe testing for the Crossing Borders fundraising event at the time, and truth be told, I just couldn’t fit extra ingredients in our fridge. But it worked out because I think a light and flavorful lettuce wrap is a good way to end a season of “simply summer fresh” recipes, don’t you think? Read more

Kale Cobb Salad : Behind the Scenes

I think we had a little more fun than usual when filming our Kale Cobb Salad episode.  It was probably due to the fact that there weren’t any cooking scenes involved, so the shoot ended up being quick and low-stress.  In this behind the scenes video, you can see us being a little more goofy with each other and working well together… thank goodness!  We definitely have our bad days too…where we get on each other’s last nerve and fight while shooting, so days like these are a good reminder of why we do what we do.  What’s the point if you can’t have fun, right?

Chicken Koftas with Couscous : Behind the Scenes

I think this is my favorite Behind the Scenes video yet. I really liked how it came out this time.  We switched up our filming style a bit and instead of narrating what we were doing, we decided to SHOW how it REALLY is for us to film together.  We chose to “ignore” the camera recording us so you could watch us interact with each other while working.  I guess it’s my way of letting you be a “fly on our wall,” so you can observe us in our natural state.  Read more

Korean Spicy Kimchi Noodles : Behind The Scenes

I know that some of you have been begging me for Korean recipe videos for a while now…so here you go!  The timing of this episode is pretty fitting because I’ll be cooking for a fundraiser event called, “Eat for North Korea,” where I’ll be making Korean-inspired dishes for 200 people.  So things have been a little hectic around here this week and we apologize if we’re not getting back to your emails and comments.  Read more

Classic Broccoli Salad : Behind the Scenes

This was definitely a fun episode to shoot and a nice change of pace because we filmed it with our friends.  We shot it over two days and in two different locations.  Our friends Audrey and John invited us over to their house for a casual BBQ lunch after church on Sunday.  They had just purchased a new grill and wanted to put it to good use.  I’ve been planning to make my Classic Broccoli Salad for one of our episodes this season anyways, and I thought this would be the perfect time.
