My Video Shoot for Recipe For Togetherness


This past August I had the privilege to take my family down to Philadelphia to film a few cooking segments/webisodes.

If you remember I did this last year as well and had an absolute blast!

Recipe For Togetherness is a fabulous online recipe source that features some of my all-time favorite brands, like Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Karo® Corn Syrup, Argo® Corn Starch, Werther’s® Original®, and Real California® Cheese and Butter!

They also host a FANTASTIC promotion during the holidays.  Read all about that HERE!

OK, let’s talk about the videos that I made.

Honestly, being in FRONT of the camera isn’t my most favorite place to be.  Everyone hates they way they sound and look through a lens…

So, having a bunch of people stand around and watch me bake and try to act like a normal person is WAY out of my comfort zone.  Normal isn’t natural for me 🙂 photo 4(4)

But I did it.  OHHHH I did it.

And honestly, I kind of loved it.


Trust me, I don’t see any huge movie contracts coming my way…but getting the opportunity to shoot a mini cooking segment gave me an eensy taste of what people like The Pioneer Woman and Giada go through times a million.


I worked with the same filming crew as I did last year, so having a little bit of familiarity was really nice…they made me feel way less awkward than I really am.

I made two really delicious recipes while I was there.


Here’s the video to the first recipe…

which is for Caramel Peanut Butter Blondies.  I mean, COME ON!

IMG_3724How gorgeous are they???

They are made with melted Werther’s Caramels right in the batter.  Sigh.

The other recipe I made was for a Jalapeno Popper Pizza.

Here’s the link to the Popper Pizza Video

This pizza was so fantastic…the Fleischmann’s® Pizza Crust Yeast has no rise time, so you can make this in 30 minutes!


I LOVE this recipe!

The day went remarkably smooth…and I adore all the great people that I worked with!

You’re so dang adorable! I think you’re a natural 🙂 and I’m so proud of you for getting over the nerves of going on camera. I think that even Giada and P-Dub have nerves, they just hide it. I would watch your cooking show!
