Do you know why you're not using your slow cooker enough? Because up to two-thirds of the recipes in any given book aren't written for your model size! But we took care of that. With over 500 recipes, we've written a book that sizes out every one for almost every size of machine. And it's not just math. We've done the testing and worked out the ratios. You gotta see it to believe it.

    Some of our TV Clips

    So much fun! We've had a blast on various television shows, making small episodes on our own, or just hanging out with the local anchors. Here are some of the best:

    First up, here's a clip reel, highlights from some of our TV appearances.

     Apparently, Mark was really hungry one day in the Cooking Light studios. Sigh. (Sorry about the pesky ad.)

    We did this video for GUIDEPOSTS magazine online to talk about one of our most personal books, REAL FOOD HAS CURVES, a seven step plan to get off processed food

    Next, here we are on The View. Wow. It sort of left my mother speechless. I can't imagine why.

    In our book, LOBSTERS SCREAM WHEN YOU BOIL THEM, we take down some of the top cooking myths. Here's our fractured take on the one about how not to cry when you chop onions.

    And here's another, on whether celery has "negative calories."

    We made this video in our own kitchen for It's all about an easy recipe for boneless skinless chicken breasts. There's even a quick shot of Dreydl!

    We shot a lot of videos for Here's Mark talking about why goat butter is so fantastic!

    And here's Bruce, explaining why it's no disaster if you forgot to thaw the turkey before the holidays.
