While I was engaged, I cooked a meal for my friends and my fiancée. He had a small video recorder and randomly filmed me in the kitchen. My fiancée kept on telling me, "You ought to be cooking on TV!" But I didn't let him send in the video, and it became sort of a joke between us.
My TV chef loving fiancee and I later married, and after 18 years of marriage and four children, my husband gave me another push . Without me knowing, he approached a young, gifted videographer, Clay Gibson (remember this name because one day he's going to be big!) to film a few cooking videos for my blog. This time, I couldn't pass up this opportunity
I read that Ms. Paula Deen and the Real Women of Philadelphia were hosting a video recipe contest, so I decided to enter. If I was already making a few videos, why not enter a contest too? On top of that, I am finding that RWoP is a great community of food enthusiasts who are welcoming and caring!

Cooking in front of a lens was much harder than I anticipated. I was so nervous and stiff! With experience, I'm hoping to become more at home in front of the camera.
Whether I make it to be one of the finalists for the contest or not, I am just excited that now, you all have access to video tutorials for some of my favorite recipes!
