Hi Gang!
Guess what?
If the title didn't tell you how awesome this is already,
you're in for a super-delicious treat!
My twin sister visited and we made her exceptionally awesome 
jam-filled chardonnay cupcakes with powdered sugar frosting!

Twinkies! And Cupcakes! ;D
Now, I know I am always telling you to watch the video high rez and full screen,
 but this time you really do have to! 
How could you miss out on our awesome opening song and dance number?
Or our cracking up in the middle?
Or Brigly in a top hat?
Need I say more?

I left the original image thumbnail youtube chose (I was planning to use the image above) because it was so darn cute!

After the break, the photo-recipe, recipe, and transcript.

Cooking with Us: e27: Teriyaki Salmon

For a long time I've had this recipe pinned on my food board on Pinterest!

Teriyaki salmon with sriracha cream sauce, topped with green onions!  What's not to love?

Especially since we caught the salmon ourselves! 

Coming up on Cooking With Us - a really delicious recipe with a bit of a controversial ending (which I found funny!)

I entreat you guys to watch Hi-res, full screen, share, subscribe, and please try and make this yourselves, I would love to know your opinions!

From fresh caught to cooked up!

Pizza with Mushroom Cream Sauce, Corn, Ham and Basil!

Hello, Beautiful!
As you might have guessed by now, my video posts are far and away my favorite. Maybe because, in what sometimes feels like another life, I was a video editor for TV shows for 10+ years, and also just because I think they're fun to make, and I love to edit them!

However, for the greater good of all you food lovers out there, I could *not* let our latest creation slip by without sharing!

We didn't photo it to be a post, but I just had to share the fantastic-ness that is the 'mushroom cream sauce, corn, ham, and basil pizza'!

My husband started by making dough from this recipe:

To which he also added equal amounts of dried oregano, basil, and garlic powder. 
It turned out quite good!
(Yes, we made three small pizzas that night, but I am just sharing the most interesting!)

Cooking with Us - e26 - Spaghetti with Bratwurst

Want a big ol' American ethnic food mash-up!?
 Here comes Spaghetti, Thai style, with Wisconsin brats - on this episode of Cooking with Us!

Please watch in high res, full screen, and share. And subscribe! (^ psst, that's the video)

My last post was on an appetizer Nee made us (on her birthday!) that was fantastic!  If you missed it, please do yourself a delicious favor and check it out here!

That same night, she made us a main course of her own invention: "Thai style" spaghetti with bratwurst!  Why bratwurst?  Well, first of all, we live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and secondly, it was in honor of 'brat days' - an annual festival that was happening that weekend! ^^

Is your mouth watering yet?
I bet it is!
Let's get to the photo recipe after the jump!

Theron's Deep Dish Pizza

Ever since my sister made her pizza video for Cooking With Us, Theron has been obsessed with making pizzas.

The other night he decided to try his hand at altering the dough recipe a bit and making a deep dish pizza.

Boy did he succeed!

Look at that puppy! --->

I took most of the photos with my cell so sorry if the quality isn't the greatest. I also started taking them after he was done making the dough, but I can provide the recipe for you at the bottom.

Let's do our photo post!

Theron mixes the dough, ingredients already added.
(2 cups self-rising flour, 1 pack yeast, 1 egg, 
olive oil by eye, salt to taste, 1ish cup of water, 1 T of sugar)

More after the jump!

Cooking With Us - E24 - Chipotle Chicken

Finished Product!
Ready for a short n sweet (well, spicy) cooking with us? OK!

We made chicken with chipotle sauce and tons of cheese!  Do I have to say it was delicious?
It was.
You know that though, you're smart people:)

 It's so easy to make and so yummy, why not try it out?

Here is the video. High res it, full screen it, share it!

When you're an editor sometimes you do weird things, like this:

No, not eating bad Mexican cheese, it's a freeze frame of a push from one piece of video to another.
Anyway, watch the video and you'll see what I mean ^^

Everything as always below the break!

Cooking With Us - e23 - Ness's Awesome Pizzas!!

My sister, not the results, crazers!
Welcome back everybody!

Y'all are in for a special treat today!

My gorgeous, talented, and much more well-spoken twin sister Vanessa decided to shoot an episode of Cooking With Us for me over the weekend!

Lo and behold - the results look absolutely delicious!!

She made two simply fantastic looking pizzas, and I can't wait to try and make them myself!

I'm guessing y'all will feel the same!

Below is the video, which of course you should watch in high-res and full screen!
And share!
She did a knock-out job, and Justin did pretty dang good as well as her cameraman. 

Thanks you two!

Tell me that's not the best youtube cover photo EVER?  

Since it gives you a sneak peak at both finished products, and my sister again, everything else will, as always, be after the jump!

Cooking With Us - e22 - Chicken and Sausage Kabob BBQ

Hey guys! 
And Happy (early) 4th of July!

To the right you can see the final product of the podcast we shot this past Sunday - chicken and sausage shish kabobs!

They were delicious (of course!)
and the podcast was really a blast to make.

I thought this might be a great thing to put up now, so you could have some new, super tasty BBQ inspiration for the 4th!

I admit, editing this podcast cracked me up. There were so many fun moments I couldn't put in because of length, but I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed editing it!

(As always, please view in high res, full screen, and then share! Share on FB, Google+, email, wherever!  And photos, the recipe, and the transcript are after the jump!)


 Always start by smiling ^^

Cooking With Us - E21 - Fancy Grilled Cheese

Hi Gang - ready for another short but sweet (er, savory) episode of Cooking With Us?
What if I told you it involves one of America's most beloved foods - Grilled Cheese Sandwiches?
With a bit of a twist of course - we got a little fancy... and a little spicy!

It's always important to have inspiration - which is what the picture on the top right is.
Our inspiration comes from a 'speak-easy' style restaurant tucked away in Culver City, California.
Props to my sister Vanessa for introducing me to it, and their hot (meaning killer spicy)
grilled cheese sandwich!

Below, follow along with our super easy recipe and layering.
Theron's sandwich won our little contest - so it gets to be featured ;)

Uprez, Full Screen - Enjoy!

Photo-essay, recipe, and transcript after the jump! =)
