Simple Lentil Soup (and also the best!)

I’ve said it before, bean soups are some of my favorite soups. And this simple lentil soup has quickly wormed its way into my heart and stomach and that turn of phrase is slightly inappropriate on a food blog but you know what I mean. The key is a little bit of bacon. I know! […]

HHH06 Interview with Skyy John, Tipsy Bartender

I met Skyy John, the Tipsy Bartender, at VidCon a few years ago when we shot a cocktail video in his hotel room in Anaheim. Sounds a little scandalous maybe but it was completely sweet. Skyy is a bartender and all-around entertaining guy who uses his channel to demonstrate crazy, weird, funky cocktails along with […]

Creamy Orzo with Mushrooms

Ooh lala! If you’re looking for a super easy thing to make that kids and grown-ups will all eat, creamy orzo with mushrooms is the thing. Orzo is a tiny rice-shaped pasta (orzo means barley in Italian) that is most often used in soups, but I like to cook it as a side dish and […]

HHH05 Interview with Jen Phanomrat – Just Eat Life

I first “met” Jen through her first YouTube series Tasty Memories which she and her boyfriend and production partner Leo made together. I was instantly charmed by her vibrant smile and her slightly filthy humor. Then, of course, the delicious family recipes she shares. As two people who love food, love life, and dearly love […]

Salmon Sweet Potato Croquettes

These salmon sweet potato croquettes are almost the definition of “clean eating” — a handful of healthful ingredients combined into a simple and quick recipe that makes you feel good to eat. I’m not sure if butter and breadcrumbs are technically “clean” but close enough. And you can make these without the breadcrumb coating if you’re […]

Cornbread Waffles with Black Beans

This used to be something I’d make often for dinner when I was vegetarian. Cornbread waffles with black beans, sour cream, salsa and avocado are a fun and cheap meal. Healthy and wholesome, too! Make big, standard sized waffles and serve them like a tostada with all the toppings piled on top. Or make mini waffles […]

7 Years of Hilah Cooking!

It’s the 7 Year Anniversary Video! All the hits, some of the jokes, all the songs, some of the mistakes. We made a lot of funny cooking videos together, Chris and me, along with a few recurring guests. It’s been such fun; we’ve met great people and made new friends; figured out how to self-publish […]

Slow-Cooker Navy Bean Soup

I love bean soups. Soup might be my favorite way to eat beans (besides refried, of course). This slow-cooker navy bean soup came together because I’ve been trying to clear out my pantry and I found a half-pound of navy beans in there just lounging about. So I turned them into a vegetarian navy bean […]

Taco Pockets! Homemade Hot Pockets

I’m calling these “taco pockets” because it has a nice ring to it, but they’re really just homemade Hot Pockets. Except I don’t think Hot Pockets has a “taco” flavor; or at least they didn’t start out that way. I know because I used to eat a shitload of Hot Pockets when I was in […]
