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!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

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!
