Hello from Angela
Earlier this year, you may have read that one of our OSG goals is to get into video. It’s something I did way back in my early days of blogging (2008/ any of you remember my random Q+A videos?), but I didn’t keep up with it because I took on other projects, like writing my first cookbook. But I’ve wanted to get back into video for years now; it’s been calling my name! Video can bring my recipes to life in a way that not only inspires, but teaches, too, which is why I'm so eager. Not to mention, I love that I get to make a deeper connection with those of you watching.
With this goal in mind, we recently hired a talented Video Content Creator, and this week we launched our very first “hand in pan” recipe video (you can catch it here). This creative collaboration has been SO much fun, and a breath of much-needed fresh air. Admittedly, I’ve been feeling a bit burned out on the creative front in recent weeks, but this new project has been just what I needed to get those creative juices flowing once again!
Aside from creating this style of recipe video, we also hope to create cooking videos with myself (and some unsuspecting friends, perhaps...muhauha) cooking away in my kitchen. Many of you have asked us to feature these “personal and intimate” cooking videos, and I’m crossing my fingers we can find a way to make them happen, too. It's been tricky trying to plan things with another little one in the house, but I’ll be sure to update you on this as soon as I know more.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the “hand in pan” recipe videos that we’ll be posting on a regular basis. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you won’t ever miss a new video. We’ll be launching our second video shortly, and it’s a delicious one!
Now, without further ado, I’d like to welcome you to our St. Patrick’s Day–themed issue of In the Glow! I hope it’ll inspire you to add some festive recipes to your day. My wild pub-hopping days may be over, but I'm hoping to celebrate with my Vegan Shepherd’s Pie in between toddler wrangling and diaper changes.

Q + A of the Week
Q: Your New Mama Glo Bars are fantastic, although I find them a bit too sweet for me. How can I reduce the sweetness? Would they still hold together if I reduced the rice syrup?

A: Hi there, Great question! I would first suggest checking that the sunflower seed butter you’re using is unsweetened. We’ve heard from other readers that they were inadvertently using a sweetened kind (Sunbutter brand, for example, makes some varieties with added sugar and palm oil, and some without). Using a sunflower seed butter with only “roasted sunflower seeds” on the label will definitely help! Regarding cutting down the rice syrup, I worry that reducing it would leave the bars a bit crumbly and falling apart since it is the main “binding agent” in this recipe. That said, you might be able to get away with omitting the maple syrup—it’s only a tablespoon and maple syrup doesn’t really play much of a role in binding the bars together anyway. If you experiment a bit, I'd love to know what you find works!
