I can't believe I've made it this far. It's been such an amazing experience. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. Project Food Blog's Challenge #7, Video 411 and what a challenge it was.
I wanted to give up on this challenge. I had such a learning curve on the technical aspect of uploading and exporting a HD (high definition) video. I've never made a video before so everything was new to me.
IMovie, the editing software I used was actually very user friendly. The difficult part was exporting a HD video onto Youtube. Finally, the hubs came across a super informative Youtube tutorial which was a godsend. You can search any "how to" video on Youtube and you'll find it. Even a "how to" on how to pick your nose, seriously.
I chose an archived recipe for this challenge. It was Halloween day and we invited a few guests for some pre-Halloween snacking before we took the kids trick or treating. So I took advantage of the opportunity to create a recipe video for our little get together.
The menu consisted of butternut squash soup, mussels with french bread, veggies and dip, fresh fruit and cupcakes my friends brought. I also made the Asian Baked Crispy Chicken Wings which is the recipe you'll find in this video.
I went from telling the hubs I wanted to give up to finally deciding that I needed to move forward. Especially after attending the Foodbuzz Festival. I had invested too much time and energy to just throw in the towel.
Anywho, I hope you'll enjoy the video. Because it took serious contemplating on whether I wanted to have a video out on the web for everyone to see. And not to mention some technical difficulties I ran into.
Voting opens November 15 at 9AM EST. I will post a reminder for your convenience. In the meantime, when my contestant widget below states "VOTE FOR ME" please take the time and send a vote my way. Smooches.
By the way. I have to clear this up. In the video, I ask my son who is girlfriend is? Upon watching the video again, I realized he said, "girlfriend name is Cara." (one of his classmates in pre-school) Not Joanna as I stated. I had to clear that up. Sorry love.
