Cooking with Spice Madam

Need more Cookie cooking videos in your life?

So..I’m back to making cooking videos! I’ll be making videos for my startup, Spice Madam – a spice box subscription service. This time I’ve got an awesome co-host and someone else holding a much nicer video camera (instead of taping it to my cabinets…), so hopefully it’s a lot better quality for you guys. HA!
