Arroz con Pollo

Everybody in north America has had some kinda arroz con pollo at some point in life, I’m betting. Arroz con pollo; chicken with rice. It’s a one-pot meal (as long as you don’t eat too many vegetables 😉 ) and it’s beautiful to look at. It kind of reminds me of paella and I’m shocked that […]

HHH019 Lesley Fightmaster | Fightmaster Yoga

I’m chatting with my friend Lesley Fightmaster, of Fightmaster Yoga (yes, that is her real name — probably the first question I asked when I met her 😉 ) in this week’s podcast. Lesley and I met in person last year at VidCon, but we knew each other through the internet before then. She’s got […]

Cucumber and Orange Salad

This simple cucumber and orange salad was inspired by something I ate at a farm-side restaurant outside Barcelona years ago. I was on a very-low-budget European tour with a girlfriend in 1999 and one of the many many many pickles we found ourselves in on that trip included the time my entire purse — passport, […]

Roasted Cabbage

I know. Roasted cabbage. BO-RING. But, y’all, this is one of my go-to vegetable side dishes. Seriously we eat this once a week. So I wanted to tell you how to roast cabbage! First you cut the cabbage into wedges. It’s easiest to cut it in half lengthwise first, then lay each half down and […]

HHH018 Steve Ramsey | Woodworking for Mere Mortals

This interview with Steve Ramsey of Woodworking for Mere Mortals is a real gem for the wood-curious and the YouTube-curious. I met Steve when he contacted me a few years ago to give me a tostonera that he made (which I then used in a video, below). He’s an accomplished woodworker who manages to make his […]

No-Recipe One Pot Pasta (with whatever you have on hand!)

By now everyone has seen and probably tried one of the thousand one-pot pasta recipes which are floating around in the ethernet. I’ve heard from a handful of you about it and it seems that many of those existing recipes are … terrible pieces of shit. Encouraged by a friend online, I set out to figure […]

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Chris had a hankerin’ for Buffalo Wings, but really more for Buffalo wing sauce since neither of us is a huge fan of nibbling on lil ol’ chicken wings.  A drumstick, sure, I can handle that. But teeny tiny chicken wang bones are so tedious. Know what’s not tedious? Boneless, crispy chicken tenders in Buffalo […]
