Well hello, how ARE you guys doing? I think it’s time to start writing something that I have been meaning to for months upon months, probably since my cookbook came out and things got insane and this website turned into four full time jobs for Mike and I. ( Yes,the math doesn’t add up, now does it….)
It’s time for a weekly (or as much as I can get to!) post of just how we are doing. Catching you up on things.
It’s very much a point of pride for me that I’ve never run The Kitchen Magpie as a site that just churns out recipes, or treated any of my social media like that, for that matter. This website is about me, and about YOU, and about sharing this space online together and we on social media together, as much as we can. I keep my Facebook page about me and about you, sharing only the most curated of content that I truly LOVE, instead of posting everything that I come across, and the same can be said about this website.
However, I must admit that I have been remiss lately – again, I am blaming the cookbook haha- with the personal posts around here. I have not been remiss in giving you all fabulous recipes to try, but I haven’t been posting much about what’s going on.
And so today, that changes.
This week has been crazy and of course I would pick the craziest week of all to start chatting with you all. Mike and I have started making recipe videos – and by started I mean we finally found our groove. We’ve played around with them before – even done some client work- but just like my website, I have no interest in being like everyone else. I’ve struggled with how to put ME in the videos, and not just be like all the zippy Facebook videos out there – I can’t even tell who produces them. To do that would make me sad, and so I didn’t.
I think we have it. I’m exceptionally happy with what took us months to finally discover and work out, but it’s me.
My short, snappy social media recipe videos are turquoise, and red, and different and they yell THE KITCHEN MAGPIE!
Here’s the one that Mike just finished tonight, my Flapper Pie! Let me know what you think guys, in the comments below. I would love to hear from you!
