Cooking Lesson Videos

Half the fun of cooking is enjoying the process of preparing a recipe, but sometimes it can seem to be an overwhelming task. Here are some “cooking lesson videos” where we can cook “together.” Everything is easier with a friend, right?

Have a favorite Italian recipe that you have been dying to make, but are a little nervous about trying it alone? Let me know by leaving me a comment and I’ll make a video while preparing the recipe. I’ll post it and then we can be cooking “together.”

Sound fun? I think so, too!

Besides the videos below, check out my other cooking videos on my YouTube Channel “334mdl.” Click this LINK to go there now~
