Cook Train Eat Race TV: Sweet Potato and Oat Pancakes

I set up a YouTube channel for my blog and the channel has videos for Ironman Texas and Ironman Arizona amongst other videos with recipes.  Those videos were still photos put to music and I enjoyed putting them together but I want to take it to the next step.  I am going to expand the Cook Train Eat Race TV selections by shooting and editing a ‘cooking show’.  Since I will be doing this on my own there will not be a lot of different camera angles but instead mostly just from behind the stove and with some ‘quality’ editing a show will blossom.  I am hoping that the videos I shoot will be short but helpful to others and provide tasty recipes.

The first episode is going to be a simple pancake recipe.  As you know I have recently gone wheat free and the majority of pancake mixes out there require wheat flour but Jeff provided a recipe for wheat free waffles and I have made some adjustments.  Jeff’s recipe called for a banana and I replaced that in this recipe with a sweet potato but everything else is the same.  The recipe is in the video so check it out and let me know what you think.

What did you think?  I know the lighting isn’t great and the angles aren’t the best but this was the first one out of the box.  I will happily take any and all constructive criticism to help make this a better video for you.  Maybe one day when The Food Network or Cooking Channel sees this they’ll provide me with a studio and lighting so that it looks much better.

Thank you for watching and be on the lookout for my interview with Mandy Farrar tomorrow.

    It’s fine dude. You may want to shorten them some but you’ll figure that out. The important thing is that you are comfortable speaking to the camera. Remember Wayne’s World after Wayne quit and Garth had to do the show himself? Yeah, that’s NOT you. You seem comfortable.

    Thanks. I definitely want to shorten it and will figure out the editing software and how to cut corners as time goes on.

      Gotta get noticed so why not. Have you ever sat down and watched Cooking Channel or Food Network and realized that everything they do has tons of oil and butter in it? Nothing they make is truly ‘healthy’ or how about something for the athlete out there? No shows dedicated to us at all. I would even take a show where they travel to the 28 Ironman races and venture into the local spots to taste test the food and give it a quality ‘thumbs-up’ approval for athletes, vegans, vegetarians. ANYTHING would be better than nothing at this point. And with that I am going to do more and more until we get noticed.

    I heard Food Network is looking for a new host.

    Sounds good to me (your recipes always do!) and I love the format. Is Jeff mad you changed his recipe? ; )

      If Jeff is mad he will let me know on Saturday when he and Annie come up here to run the Dallas Marathon on Sunday.

      They tasted awesome too. Always the first ones come out like paper but the 3rd, 4th, 5th really fluff up. Probably need the griddle hotter.

      Also, these come out great as waffles but they will not be super crunchy if you are looking for that b/c of all the moisture that is in them.
