Video: Veggies 4 Ways

Pin It

Wanna see how quick and easy it is to throw together four of my favorite vegetable sides? Watch the video below to see how I made roasted kabocha squash, garlic cauliflower mashed “potatoes,” pressure cooker braised greens, and stir-fried kale and bacon — all in just one hour. I did this after working a 10-hour graveyard shift, so I don’t want to hear any complaints about not having the time or energy to make veggies!

And if you can’t get the catchy music out of your head, blame Ryan of The Cave Kids, who created the soundtrack to this video with lightning speed!

Video: Here Comes Your Mayo

When I got off work this morning, I saw that reader Marcia wrote a very nice comment on my last post. It included this request:

"If you’re not busy, how about a mayo video?"

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. Don’t say I never do anything for you. Without further ado, here comes your mayo.

(Note: For this morning’s batch of mayonnaise, I didn’t use my immersion blender, opting instead to go old school with a balloon whisk and a big bowl so that the video will match the recipe in my index. Besides, my arms needed a workout.)

Earlier today, reader BTNYC posted a desperate plea for help:

Nom nom, need help.  I bought an Iwatani torch at your suggestion.  It took several months to locate butane cannisters that fit (gas one). I no longer have the packaging and have no clue how to make the torch work. I can hook up the gas properly, but uncertain as to the controls on the torch. Would you be so kind to walk me through it. Love your site.

Great question. I love my Iwatani kitchen torch, but I’d hate for you to buy one and burn your face off, or engulf your home in flames. Kitchen torches are fun and effective for evenly browning and charring your meats, but they’re dangerous. It’s good to be cautious.

BTNYC: Here’s my video response to your question. Hope it’ll help you get your Iwatani torch up and running.

By the way, did anyone notice my awesome apron? You can get one just like it over here. (Shameless, I know.)
