Other Hilah Videos

Even though I’m awesome at cooking, I also do lots of other stuff.

The Hot As Shits – Check My Grill

This is my band. Music Video rendered by Aphid Animation.

Smashing In Blue – Music Video

Big Ol’ Tire Fire is a film-making group I’ve been with for several years. This video won the DISMEMBER THE ALAMO Zombie Film Festival. Look closely to see my zombie boob.

Buttons and Bows is my other band. We sing about America and write jokes about cheese. I made those costumes from fabric imported from China; none of those flags are real flags. Hire us for your next all-ages party!

    • Hilah Cooking on May 30, 2010 at 4:36 pm

      Weird. I was just thinking of those old gas commercials.

  2. Pete Sleeper on June 13, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Your stuff is so funny and entertaining.

    • Hilah Cooking on June 14, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    i’ve had check my grill stuck in my head for weeks! keep rockin’ out hilah 🙂

  4. Nicoleta on June 24, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    Hi Hilah,
    I really enjoyed your show. I came upon it by mistake just messing around with my Roku channels. Netflix was down. I must say I became a regular simply because it is a cooking for dummies show and I must confess I am a dummy in this department =) I liked the rice pilaf recipe. I just can’t stress enough how important is for me the fact that you keep it simple. Man, when I realized you only used a bay leaf I thought, I surely can do this! I also liked the spring roll, since I decided to become vegetarian recently. That’s another “I can do” recipe. I was watching today the bread making episode. My mom makes bread every week and she had tried in vain to show me how simple it is. Forget it. I hope you do more vegetarian recipes in your shows. The breakfast thing I have down packed, that’s pretty much what I live off =)
    Keep it up, I’ll keep watching. 3 episodes in 10 hours, I think that would make me a follower =)

    • Hilah Cooking on June 25, 2010 at 2:50 am

      Hi Nicoleta! This is such great news! I’m really glad you found our show and that you are getting so much use from it. I will certainly keep vegetarians in mind. Please let me know what other episodes you find especially helpful or if you have any suggestions. Thanks for writing!

  5. Mr. Jingjong on June 25, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    You are the sh*t! Cooking and rockin out…lol. I haven’t been in a band in years. Keep it hot.

  6. Rafael on July 6, 2010 at 10:12 am

    Your fan,

  7. Eileen on July 13, 2010 at 5:41 pm


    One slow day at work I my boss and I were bored so she showed me this email her dad had sent her… and there you were… drinking a beer in your buttermilk biscuits episode! We were cracking up making the biggest scene!! Apart from being hilarious I thought the butter grating trick was pretty cool!! And now I am obsessed and have friended you on facebook and are regularly checking back to see whats new! We work in a hotel pastry kitchen so we watch you purely for entertainment! Anyway you are awsome!


    • Hilah Cooking on July 13, 2010 at 5:47 pm

      Thanks, Eileen! Man, you must have the COOLEST boss ever!

  8. Len Dickey on August 29, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    Just discovered you on my new ROKU, all tribal charm with a dash of whack for seasoning. The purity of simple ingredients and actions make emulation irrisitable!

    • Hilah Cooking on August 30, 2010 at 1:57 pm

      Wow! Thanks, Len! That’s a lot of nice words you just used on me!

  9. Emily on October 28, 2010 at 5:13 am

    When I see my dog’s pretty pink bag of kibble heading towards the car, I usually call ‘trunk’, cause that bag leaves room for no one!

  10. Desmond Campbell on November 7, 2010 at 4:52 am

    Omg that is cool! I get food from hoovers all the time! And also hang out at Bennu Daily.Yeah you know around the block from that gas station in the vid.! Fun video. Im gonna have to connect with you on fb. good job! ~ Desmond

    • Hilah Cooking on November 7, 2010 at 2:02 pm

      That’s so funny that you recognized it! I love Hoovers.

  11. kasper fischer on November 16, 2010 at 10:35 am

  12. Bwbarnett on December 28, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    LOL for some reason your zombie boob got me feeling funny down below….sexy zombie boob (-=

  13. Whats It on January 15, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Is there a special dipping sauce for Zombie boob?

    • Hilah Cooking on January 15, 2011 at 9:51 pm

      Zombie semen would be great! Thanks for commenting!

  14. Ray Spallone on January 26, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Cool stuff. But I am wondering. . . are you that same actress chick who posted that video (on youtube) about someone farting in a grocery store?

    • Hilah Cooking on January 26, 2011 at 1:11 pm

      Hi Ray! Yes, that was me in the video for Project: Rant. Hope you liked it!

  15. jim on March 1, 2011 at 4:40 am

    hi hilah, i had no idea you were so talented. i thought you were just a cute chef. i have a question, do you have any ideas on what i can do with leftover mashed potatos? and by the way, i love your cooking videos. keep up the good work

    • Hilah Cooking on March 1, 2011 at 1:36 pm

      Hi Jim! Thanks for writing! A couple things I do with leftover mashed potatoes is use them on shepherd’s pie or put them in salmon croquettes, like just canned or cooked salmon, egg, breadcrumbs, potatoes, and whatever seasonings you want. Glad you like the videos.

  16. Dewey Stewart on March 15, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Ok, so I made the chili and it was really simple and really good. Thanks. Now, I don’t think my picky 6 year old daughter will go anywhere near it. All she seems to eat are chicken nuggets. Anyway, your show is amazing. I hope you continue because I think there are a lot of dishes in you and you may be holding out on us. Don’t…..we’re junkies! Next on my list, tortillas and peach cobbler. Once I get some boxed wine in me anything is possible. I’ve never been able to make respectable fried chicken. As a southern girl you must know how. I also like that Hot As Shits video. If I had a radio show, I’d spin it and promote it. Only if……Oh yeah, and I saw the zombie boob. You said it was there so I felt obligated as a dude to check it out. I had no choice. Thanks.
    Dewey from MD

    • Hilah Cooking on March 16, 2011 at 5:32 pm

      Yay, Dewey! I’m glad you saw the zombie boob – gross, right? Fried chicken is on the list, my man! Lemme know how the tortillas and cobbler go.

  17. Adam on March 22, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    Yo…my name’s Adam and I wanted to say, the cooking is legit!

    I wanna rage it up with you sometime…
    Make a bunch of different drinks and grubbbb!!!
    Where are you from?

    • Hilah Cooking on March 23, 2011 at 3:18 pm

      Adam, I’m totally down to party. Anytime. Any place. I’m in Austin. Where are you???

  18. Ray Spallone on March 23, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Why does snoop dog carry around a umbrella?

    For the Drizzle

    BTW- I tried those fish tacos you cooked up. They rocked. 🙂 🙂

    • Hilah Cooking on March 23, 2011 at 8:18 pm

      Hell yeah, Ray! You rock!

  19. Wesley Oliveira on March 26, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Hey Hilah, I live in Sao Paulo, the most cosmopolitan city in Brazil and, when it comes to food, you can find a bit of every state and every country in the world. I am a big fan of cooking podcasts BUT when I saw your Hilah Cooking Show… Oh lord of all skillets.. it is awesome and so funny, just the way cooking should be. So, the new trend here in Brazil is making cheesecakes, cupcakes and muffings (I think this is one more item of those thing that America influenced us) so I would really appreciate if you could make those for me and my fellas. Thanks a bunch.

    • Hilah Cooking on March 28, 2011 at 1:23 pm

      Totally agree that cooking ought to be awesome and funny. And super fun. I like it that you like it! 😉
      Cheesecake, cupcakes and muffins are all great ideas. It’ll be a little bit, but I’ll definitely hook you and your fellas up!
      Thanks a bunch for writing!

  20. Cynthia on April 14, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Hiya Hilah, I just found your episode on youtube today. I watched all of them TODAY!! You are hysterical!! I can’t believe I’ve never seen it before. I love to cook and have wanted to do a cooking show on youtube for the longest time. (but I don’t have a camera)….someday =( I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed watching. Thank you for the great entertainment. I love your sense of humor!!! THANKS AGAIN!!! =)

    • Hilah Cooking on April 16, 2011 at 8:15 am

      Hey Cynthia!
      That’s great news! I’m so happy you like my videos so much! Let me know how it goes if/when you try any of the recipes, ‘kay?
      P.S. You needa get a friend with a camera like I did! 😉

  21. Wesley on April 18, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Hey Hilah!!! Wesley from Brazil again. I just wanted to say Corndogs rule my neighborhood now kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk! I did it once and everybody here just loved it! Second thing is that now I know why I got so gobsmacked when I saw you for the first time in video: you look exactly like Tilda Swinton, the actress!!! I do not if anyone ever told you that but take it as the most important compliment of you l-i-f-e hehe. You both share a very exquisite expression and strangeness in your faces that just make you 2 look unique. Now you will always make part of my list of “The Most F$%$* Beautiful Women in the Galaxy”. Great big hugs and just so you can know I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN MY CUPCAKES AND/OR MUFFIN (it can be vegan too. love that!)

    • Hilah Cooking on April 19, 2011 at 7:31 am

      I want to come to Brazil. I will bring you cupcakes! MAKE IT HAPPEN. 😉

  22. Will Scott on April 21, 2011 at 10:35 pm

We’re coming thru Austin in Sept. to visit relatives in San Antone and will deffinately check out some of the taquerias in your book. Keep up the good work darlin’.

    • Hilah Cooking on April 24, 2011 at 7:27 am

      Hi Will! That’s so cool that you can make Mexican fiesta in Australia! Yay!
      Also, dude, let’s meet for tacos if you’re serious about checking out taquerias in Austin. Seriously. Email me!

  23. Steve Davis on April 22, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    Damn girl you ROCK! The The Hot As Shits – Check My Grill is great!
    I Love it. The Smashing In Blue is pretty sweet also. Hilah I have been making your recipes and my wife and I like them a lot. This Sunday (Easter), I will be making your Momma’s Peach Cobbler. I got your last news letter and all I have to say on that is – been there and done that, it all gets better after the first marriage. So hang in there ( I know you will). So here’s to your awesome web site, I’m drinking a few Beers for in your honor!

    • Hilah Cooking on April 24, 2011 at 7:16 am

      Hi Steve! Wow, thanks so much for writing! Glad you like the other videos. Hopefully, the band will record again this summer and make another video if we can ever get our shit together enough. Musicians, man… 🙂
      Happy to hear you and your wife are making the recipes! Awesome. I LOVE that.
      I will have Easter beers today, too, in solidarity with your solidarity beers.

  24. Cincinnati_Dave on May 17, 2011 at 5:35 pm

  25. Reynard Foxx on August 23, 2011 at 10:24 am

    For the tiniest, eensy weensiest sardines. Maybe 10-15 in a can

    • Hilah on August 23, 2011 at 12:31 pm

      I’ll look for those! Thanks, Reynard!

    • Hilah on August 24, 2011 at 7:47 am
