Paula, who hosts the Faith & Calling Podcast, shared a snippet of her chat with Al, 68, and Deborah, 62, on Instagram.
In the clip, the couple was seen sitting side-by-side in front of a camera in their home.
The Today weatherman said in the interview: “We each have strengths. Like, Deborah can cook – people think Deborah can’t cook.
“She can cook.”
Deborah interjected, asking with a laugh: “Who thinks I can’t cook?”
Al replied, as both his wife and Paula giggled: “Almost everyone.”
The trio laughed for a moment before Deborah asked: “Who thinks I can’t cook? Is that rumor out there?”
Her husband explained: “I don’t think it’s a rumor. But the thing is, she just doesn’t enjoy it. I mean, she’s a good cook.”
Deborah then appeared in the comments to defend her skills in the kitchen once more: “Rumor has it!! but Don’t listen!! I just made Nick an omelet!”
Their supporters ate it up, with one writing: “Such a great episode – they are so very real and honest about what works and the different interests they have!”
Another commented: “Funny and so much love between those two great [people].”
A third fan wrote: “Loved this episode so much!”
Someone else chimed in: “I literally laughed out loud during this one. So many great nuggets. I told our church small group about it! Love your podcast.”
Al is known for showing off his skills in the kitchen on TV and on social media.
In February, he filmed as he whipped up a recipe inspired by The New York Times cooking section, which featured a recipe for beef barley soup by Melissa Clark.
Throughout the pandemic, Al recorded cooking videos with his son Nick.
TAKING A BREAK
The podcast episode comes after Al and Deborah jetted off on a family getaway.
They flew to Puerto Rico for a little time out and it seems they both struggled to return from their vacation.
Al, Deborah and their son Nick stayed at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve on the coast, for a few days.
After soaking up the sun and enjoying drinks by the pool, Al revealed on Friday that it was time to head home.
The star appeared upset at the thought, sharing a collection of photos from the trip, including a few of the resort pool.
He captioned the post: “So hard to leave @doradobeachreserv.”
Al added that it’s now his “favorite #happyplace, thanks to GM Ana Henriques and her fabulous staff. Gracias.”
One fan told him in the comments: “Re-entry to reality is rough! But looks like you had a blast!”
Another said: “Beautiful!! So glad you all got a relaxing vacation to recharge.”
A third wrote: “Such a beautiful family! Have a safe trip home!”
Deborah shared a snap of her and Al together on the trip one day earlier.
The photo of them enjoying their family vacation came after his miraculous recovery from blood clots.
The photo showed them posing side-by-side in what looked like the foyer of the resort.
They stood close together with their arms around each other’s waists and palm trees overlooking them as the sun shined overhead.
The meteorologist and his journalist wife were dressed for the warm weather.
Al appeared to be wearing grey camouflage swim trunks, a graphic T-shirt, black sneakers, and a baseball cap.
Deborah, meanwhile, had on a black sheer swimsuit cover-up, which stopped at her knee, over her spaghetti-strapped black and white striped one-piece bathing suit, flip flops, and a baseball cap.
She captioned the sweet couple’s photo: “Magical moments with my miracle man. #thursday #thanks.”
