With our intrepid videographers timWuNotWoo and JimHero away this week, we return to our scrappy, DIY approach to cooking videos. But what we lack in directorial vision, editing skills, and technology we make up for with unconventional camera angles and silly captions. They don't call us "innovative" for nothing!

Watch as A&M make the Best Spinach Recipe finalists: shayma's Yoghurt & Spinach Dip, 'Borani Esfanaaj', in the Persian Manner and Lizthechef 's Spinach Gratin. Amanda projects her city girl fantasies of rural life onto panko and Merrill does her best Pepé Le Pew impression, repeatedly (it's quite good). And both forget one pesky detail: salt. 

See the video below, and then go vote!

There is a certain charm to your DIY videos that I miss when your cinematographers are around. It seems like you have more fun. As a short person, I admit to loving the beginning half of this video - now I know what it's like to be tall! It's actually not all that, I must say. ;-) Both of these recipes not only look/sound delicious, but also strike me as easy to add to one's repetoire. (spelling?) Thanks, again, for another wonderful video!

Love it! As a fellow DIY video person I can say you did an excellent job - it's not easy. Also, you might like the JOBY tripod (the small one), I use mine all over the kitchen to attach the camera to knobs, cupboards at odd angles. Also, for the frozen spinach - a great way to get the water out is with a potato ricer.

We had a lot of fun filming this one -- thanks for your great comments!

I think you guys had more fun making my "grah-tin" than I did - thanks for all your effort and good spirits...BTW it was a typo re "pinches" of cayenne - a pinch will do just dandy, and yes, a little s & p ;)

Every week after filming we say to ourselves -- use wooden utensils! -- and then instantly forget.
