Rachael Ray claims that a meal only takes 30 minutes, but she doesn't have a toddler running into the kitchen and latching onto her leg or a preschooler who needs help reaching the scissors. That half hour easily grows into three-quarters of one.
After spending many years building her career as a film, television and music video director — she has both Tone Loc's “Wild Thing" video and Billy Madison to her credit, Tamra Davis hit the kitchen. Wife of the Beastie Boys's Mike D. and mom to two young sons, she now has a series of web-based 3 to 5 minute cooking videos called The Tamara Davis Cooking Show, which feature primarily organic, kid-friendly recipes.
Filmed in Davis's homes the shorts show Tamra's kids running in and out of the room, offering to help and eventually tasting most of her creations. She said:
"I really hope to inspire moms to make delicious, healthy meals for their families. I always wanted to put a camera in a woman's hand, now with my passion for children's health issues I want to put a pan in her hand too."
