Yes, I Made a Music Video

I made a music video.

Have a peek.

Don’t worry. It’s not a typical music video. I didn’t bare my navel or wear booty shorts and stilletos. There were no wind machines involved. I didn’t require Mr. Mom’s Kitchen to make a cameo driving a white convertible. And luckily, I’m not the one singing (the talented Amy Stroup is the voice behind the song).

It’s all about my cookbook — Best Lunch Box Ever — which comes out in a few short weeks. It’s just me and my girls in the kitchen making lunch. We borrowed a few cousins and friends to pitch in, too.

I hope it makes you want to pack a terrific school lunch.

And maybe, just maybe, get your hands on the book.

Mr. Mom’s Kitchen organized some business travel for himself once he caught wind of my video plans.

So cute!!! Very cool. I love the video and everything it shows about planning lunches, good nutrition, and family. The ideas look amazing. Cannot wait to get your book and tell others – friends and clients.

BRAVO!! Beautiful, inspiring, and of course looks effortless. Love your style and can’t wait to buy many of your books for gifts.

I love the video! I know that it will go viral! I love the shot from the oven! So creative. Can’t wait for the book.

Great video! What type of camera did you use? Did you do the editing? I’m hoping to do something similar focused on teens cooking. Maybe my teenage helpers can do something close to what you’ve produced! Thanks.

Hi Leane….my photo abilities are limited to still cameras, I’m afraid. I had the help of Iri and Jim at Brakethrough Media. They were wonderful. I will say, however, that teenagers do seem to know quite a lot about these things so it’s worth a shot.

Your video inspires me! I can’t wait to get the cookbook for me and my sisters who all strive to feed their kids better. I wish the whole country could see how easy it is to more healthy!

Awww…thanks Kathy.

Katie Morford

Thanks Rosemary. Definitely not me singing!

Brilliant! What I love most is that you captured what I edcuate my clients about…when you make the kitchen a welcoming, FUN, non pressure place…good things CAN follow. I so enjoyed seeing the kids involved in a natural, non pressured way. Well done!

I will be passing this along. So, so great~!
I will say, though, that there is absolutely no credit given to the singer, unless I am missing it. I know it’s your video and book ad, but the singer is the person creating the audio art and any use of anyone else’s art should be recognized. It’s very confusing because whoever that is singing is probably trying to establish herself too.

Hi Brandi…appreciate your thoughts…it’s such a lovely song and I will discuss with the video folks about adding her name to the trailer.
