Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I will be voting for you! Looks delicious and perfect for Fall.

  8. Fantastic job on the video! I totally loved the music, the conciseness, the recipe displayed at the beginning and the tart looks just beautiful. Early days yet, but this one is my absolute favourite so far. Hope you win!

  19. The video says it is private now, anyway we can get the recipe in words or just make the video public again?
