Woo hoo! This was our last episode of Season 2 and we finished filming it just in the nick of time! We were literally racing the construction workers as they were resurfacing the siding and redoing all the roofs of all the condo units in our entire complex, and we received a notice that they were going to start work on our unit that day!

That uncertain moment right before we cracked into the poached eggs was intense for us. We held our breath, said a little prayer, and braced ourselves…
I’ve been putting off filming a recipe involving poached eggs for some time because the truth is, poached eggs can be a little tricky, and the way they come out can be somewhat of a surprise each time. Sometimes they’re slightly undercooked and too runny, and other times they sit in the water a few seconds too long and become overcooked in an instant. Read more
Filming this video was pretty straight-forward and stress-free, but the photoshoot afterwards was a doozy! I blame it on the fact that it was still winter and we literally had no sun that day. According to Joe, it was the longest photoshoot we ever did after filming an episode. Who would’ve thought that taking pictures of a bowl of soup would be so difficult?
In the end, the pictures still came out nicely… but capturing that little glisten on the top of the soup was torturous and it required a few tricks. These are the days I miss living in California… you always have natural sunlight and you just need to snap near a window. Bah… but it’s okay, Spring is here now! Read more
We filmed this episode the same week as our lasagna recipe, where I shared with you in our last behind the scenes that I was feeling bummed. But thankfully this day I took the advice of Taylor Swift and decided to “shake it off.” Sometimes you just need the sad or bad days to help you hit the pause button and think about what’s really going on in your life.

To everyone else, I was simply making a lasagna in front of the camera, but inside, I was struggling with my emotions. It’s been a while since we’ve made and posted a real behind the scenes video of us filming our cooking show, but I’m glad we did this time. Read more
We’re been working on a secret, not-so-secret project. As soon as we wrapped with filming Season 1 of our online cooking show, we turned right around and starting shooting our Season 1 eCookbook! You know we’ve been hinting at this for the past 6 months and it’s hard to believe that it’s finally done! It took longer to complete than planned, but that’s because we both are our own worst critics and have perfectionist tendencies. Many people have questioned why we didn’t just take screen shots of our videos or recycle images we already had from the blog and put it together into a book. Read more
