Behind the Scenes with Natasha Haynes
Video by Jonathan Parrish
I never knew how much I learned about cooking from my mother and her mother, whom we called Mou, until I grew up and started cooking on my own. With today’s busy lifestyles, many families no longer have the advantage of experienced home cooks passing their skills to the next generation.
One of the best things about my job as an Extension agent is sharing my love of healthy cooking with clients when I do cooking demonstrations. Now, through the blog, I’ll be able to share more of the content our followers have been asking for, including the exact recipes we use in our videos. By going all digital, we also have the opportunity to reformat our videos to make them more appealing to social media audiences and more fun to share. If you like what you see, we’d love for you to like our posts, comment on them, and share them with your friends.
Just like I loved the stories that Mou used to share with me, I know you have stories, recipes, and tips to share. Leave me a message on The Food Factor Facebook page or shoot me a tweet. Your question or suggestions may end up in a future blog post or video!
