I remember feeling like we’d NEVER reach 5000 subscribers on our YouTube channel. It felt so far away and unattainable. It was definitely a long slow struggle to get here, but we finally did it! I know it’s not the most impressive number out there to seasoned YouTubers, but to us, it’s the biggest deal, and we’re really proud! So to say thanks, we decided to do another food challenge!
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
After we filmed our Winter Sangria episode, we thought it would be appropriate to sit down together and reminisce about the jam-packed year we had, as well as discuss our plans for the next year! Who knew that 2014 would be such a busy and interesting year? It could’ve gone by in a blur, but these are the moments that I’m glad we decided to capture our lives on film! Read more
I know I promised you some California adventures, but we filmed this footage before we left for our trip, so it only makes sense to present things in order right?
Our friend Grace was visiting Chicago from New York for a wedding and was staying with us in the suburbs. But at the same time, our brother-in-law Dan (my sister’s hubby), flew in for the weekend from California for a business conference. So he got to stay in a nice fancy hotel in the city. We just thought it was a great opportunity to meet up with both of them and explore Chicago. Read more
What’s on our plate lately? A handful of things, but mostly too much food! Cooking, eating, and taking photographs is all we’ve been doing for the last 2-3 weeks. This is all for the sake of our e-cookbook, which we’re hoping to get done soon. The photographs were one phase, which is now completed. And now we have to work on our layout. We’re currently brainstorming about how we can make this e-cookbook special and uniquely ours. So that might take us a while. But we’ll keep you updated with our progress.
Meanwhile, what’s next? I’m currently typing this blog entry late at night, with bleary eyes and a mushy brain while scrambling to race the clock. We’re going to be boarding a plane to California in a matter of a few hours, and I have a sneaking suspicion I may be pulling an all-nighter. Read more
The last two weeks have been a crazy whirlwind of food, photography, and WAY too much eating. My stove has been getting a serious work out as a result of us shooting our first e-cookbook! This is a reward we promised to our Kickstarter backers, who made it possible for us to produce Season 1 of Bits & Pieces, our online cooking show. Read more
