So many emotions as I share my first ever video mini series!
(The emotions are 5% because of this and 95% because I just spent my first 2 nights away from Noelle and she sort of said “ma ma” before I left and I’m a total basket case and I’m counting down the minutes until I see my baby girl tonight!!!!!!)
What began as a casual way to share recipes with my friends has blossomed into a life-changing career where I get to connect with equally passionate bakers around the world. When I first hit publish in 2011, I had ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what I was doing, I just knew that I LOVED doing it. And after 7 years, 3 cookbooks, mistakes, growth, and about 3 billion dishwasher cycles, I’m elated to say that my dedication, work ethic, and love for baking hasn’t faded. At all.
But it’s time for something more. This past April, a video production crew filmed me at work in my kitchen. Most of the time together was spent filming 8 step-by-step recipe tutorials, but they also filmed me working, writing, editing, photographing, and recipe testing. The inspiration behind all of this:
- craving a deeper connection – I want to give you the front row seat so you can see what goes into each recipe and blog post, as well as life as a mother and business owner.
- inspire – seeing my recipes come together in a video may inspire you to try it yourself!
- trying something new – because entertainment is fun!
My video mini series is called Sprinkled. ♥
I have 8 “episodes” for Sprinkled coming this year. I carefully selected 8 of my favorite dessert recipes ranging from cookies and cake to brownies and pie. (I’m teaching you how to lattice!) Each recipe already lives on my blog, but these videos dive a little deeper with visual guidance and additional tips. Hopefully the next batch of episodes will be for NEW recipes. I just didn’t have time to prepare all of that before it was time for production week!!!
The episodes will be featured right here on my blog in partnership with my talented production & multimedia crew, Grateful & Co.
The kick-off episode is Homemade Strawberry Cake. I chose this recipe because it’s 100% from-scratch strawberry cake made from real strawberries and has become a reader favorite since I published it in January. The process is a little unique where you begin with reduced strawberry puree and finish with strawberry frosting made from freeze-dried strawberries. It’s a FUN cake and I thought you’d love seeing it come together on camera!
WHAT’S TO COME
