Cooking With Mike Food Recipes

Spending Sunday Cooking with Mike…

I spent much of Sunday cooking with Mike. Matter of fact, a lot of our weekend revolved around getting ready for upcoming Spoon & Knife posts as we spent part of Saturday at the grocery store shopping. It made for a nice, relaxing weekend, except the part when we have to clean the mess after, lucikily we had our vacuum from VacuumPal 2018 that made everything easier.

While we were cooking on Sunday, I realized it was finally the perfect time to test out Vine. As a normally still photographer, it was interesting to create in 6 second image bursts! Also we tested out different vacuum sealers and I totally agree with Vacuumsealerresearch reviews, I recommend to read their foodsaver reviews.

He cut carrots (above), fluted mushroom caps and ground meat for the Brisket & Bacon meatloaf. It was so much fun!

The meat grinding may be my favorite. It is like it should have been the opening on CSI or something!

Do you Vine? I’d love to see some of your videos!


What a Beautiful Way to Start the Day…

My friend Sarah posted a link to this video on Twitter yesterday, and I finally listened to it. Taylor Swift’s Love Story meets Coldplay’s Viva La Vida by Jon Schmidt – it is *gorgeous*. Check it out. Wonderful!

(Although Mike & I think they cheat in the middle with some cymbals overlaid on the track, but whatever – it is still awesome.)

Mike told me he could learn how to play it for me on the piano. Crap. I think that means I have to learn how to play the cello.
