HHH019 Lesley Figh..

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 ūüėČ ) 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 Orang..

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 […]

5 Meals to Cook th..

Oh my GOSH! Y’all, I was supremely happy to see how much all of you¬†appreciated the premier¬†5 meals to cook this week¬†post, which made it extra fun for me to plan this week’s post. If you tried it last week, let me know how you liked the recipes. If you didn’t, give it a shot […]

HHH018 Steve Ramse..

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 ..

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 […]

5 Meals to Cook Th..

I talk a lot about food. I talk to everyone I meet about food — online and in real life. Want to know the most common complaint I hear about cooking? Planning. I’d wager that at least half of us really, really dislike the planning part of cooking. Decision fatigue is a real problem¬†in modern […]

Baked Buffalo Chic..

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 […]

HHH017 Fifi Buchan..

My friend Fifi is one of the most curious, well-rounded people I know. We met through YouTube, but in addition to making videos, she has written a book, has a masters in mechanical engineering, she’s a¬†health coach, and a podcaster. Check out her¬†Wonderfully Made podcast for some great advice¬†and inspiration. In this interview, we talk […]
