    I dunno why

  2. hamburger helper or go home

  3. Why does the Flame look like bad cgi (who is here in 2019 btw)

  4. I cant believe you forgot everything stew

  5. Great channel and I love seeing your success but please do not promote blue apron. Aside from the price overhead, you are encouraging so many people to generate so much waste! And also, shopping for your own ingredients teaches so much about picking quality produce, and being creative with whats in season and on sale.

    I love your videos! But this sponsorship is so off putting!

  6. Just made the salmon tonight it was awesome!!!

  7. i feel like an idiot for watching a cooking show, and electing not to cook anything that isn't a glorified MRE

  8. You used 2 pans on the first meal

  9. when im not hungry and my moms cooking something i watch your vids so i eat a lot because my moms food is :O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O:O

  10. the thing that would go nice with the salmon is a hollandaise

  11. WOW, ingredients in a box. Imagine if we had a place where you can buy vegetables, sauce or pasta individually without the ton of plastic.

  12. I made the chicken, apples and sweet potato dish tonight for dinner… I had to steal a granny smith apple out of the work fridge. Honestly who eats those things raw on purpose? it was tasty I used Rye Whiskey for my deglazer dont know how that affected the taste thats all I had.. .

  13. You sounded dead inside when plugging blue apron lol

  14. "Y'all know what this is: bond." -Subtitle
