i cook you measure Apr 28, 2024

We're back with more episodes of I Cook, You Measure presented by Safeway starting this week!

If you're new to the show here's what you can expect - a lot of laughs and stories with a side of sports talk thrown in while mixing it up in the kitchen. 

Season 4 was shot on location during Spring Training in Arizona which means there's a definite baseball vibe to these six episodes. 

You'll find new episodes (and every episode of the show) on YouTube. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss the show or the Bonus Bites for each episode. 

Want the ingredients list, wine pairings or fun facts about each episode? This is where you'll find 'em

Finally, if you decide to cook along with us and make any of the recipes featured in the show, send me a picture and share your results!

I Cook, You Measure Updates

It's taken far too long for me to update all the things, but you can now find every episode of I Cook, You Measure along with the ingredients lists and wine pairings right here on the website

Catch up on episodes you've missed, find a couple fun facts about each show and use the ingredients list to recreate the dishes on your own. 

And did you know there's even more on YouTube? 

We record about an hour of footage and conversation for each episode and not everything makes the final edits, but nothing lands on the cutting room floor. The stories and laughs are just too good not to share. We call them "Bonus Bites." 

There are some fun nuggets, lots of personality and some good insights shared in the Bonus Bites episodes for each show. Dig in and let me know what you think. 

And get ready for the announcement about Season 4. It was shot on location in Arizona during Spring Training so we'll have your baseball fix soon!

I Cook, You Measure returns for Season 2

Part cooking instruction, part entertainment and all about connecting over food and wine. 

That's how I describe my cooking show "I Cook, You Measure." It's unlikely any other cooking show and it's designed to entertain both home cooks and sports fans. 

Season 2 started on Friday. Did you catch the episode with Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh? 

The full lineup for Season 2 includes current Mariners, a Mariners legend, a Super Bowl Champion and the tallest person who's ever been in my kitchen (which makes sense for a hoops standout!)

I love this show and I love this project. I also know it might feel like a little bit of a stretch or something that doesn't quite fit with my emphasis on business communication and effective conversation strategies. 

Here's what you should know about me - my goal is ALWAYS to give people a platform to tell their stories.

I do that in every post-game interview. I do that on stage when giving keynote presentations. It's my objective in...
