Great video! I am a fan of Karen and her book, it is fab! I made one of her pies at Thanksgiving after watching her make it on Martha. It was soooo yummy. Both these sugar cookie recipes look delicious. (ps - I, too, have been researching simple Lav mics for Flips and will let you know if I find a good one!)

Loved the video - but have found the sound quality to be lacking lately. I can hear clanging bowls, etc, but the audio is very faint - especially Amanda. You may want to check if this is a problem for others.

You're totally right -- I need to speak up! Also, the Flip camera we use doesn't have great audio, so we may need to invest in microphones (which kind of goes against our low-budget ethos, but we do want you to be able to hear us). Thanks so much for pointing this out!

I, too, have trouble hearing Merrill and Amanda in the videos and have commented about it before. In a recent comment, I suggested that the Food52 community chip in to buy them some microphones. I offered up the first $10. Anybody else out there game?

I'm game! I have the tendency to turn the speakers waaayyyyyy up, and then forget to turn them back down. And then when Sconeman's using the computer, he says "What in the world?? You must be going deaf!" So, yeah, where do I send my contribution?
