As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program partnered with Newman's Own I was chosen to create a Vlog (video blog) using some of Newman's Own products using a Flip HD camera (that they sent me as well!). I was so excited to be able to try out using a Flip HD camera (I've always wanted one!) and to showcase products from a company like this one, whose products I really enjoy.
So I present to you my three videos....for some reason I said "incorporate" alot..... and there were a lot of funny out takes.... my parents got to witness all the funny mess-ups! Food Network people: I give you so much credit because it's not easy to cook and talk at the same time!!
Here are the actual recipes for you!
