Maternity leave is officially over. Check in every Saturday for new videos!
Hello! It's been a long time. About three months since I posted a new video, and about seven months since we shot a video. Time flies when you're taking care of a tiny, slug-like baby who depends on you for his very survival! Here's a video update on what we've been up to, the thoughts that have bee

Making some of these today! Because it's never too early to start feeding the baby cookies. (Just kidding, I'm pretty sure that 8 weeks is too early.)
Deluxe chocolate chip cookies with nuts, oatmeal and coconut, too!

I came up with this vegan Caesar salad, which I realize is a kind of oxymoron since if it's vegan it ain't Caesar but what the hell. It's creamy. It's tangy and salty. And for this pregnant lady with only 4 weeks to go, anything that will help me eat more salad is useful.

You Don't Always Need a Recipe

http://www.bonappetit.com/test-kitchen/cooking-tips/article/fall-soup-ideas

We routinely teach Peo how to cook food without needing a recipe as a 100% literal source to follow.  Sometimes we cook from recipes and adjust ingredients to satisfy our dietary needs, our ingredients on hand, or just for taste preferences.  Sometimes we just throw things in a pot and cook and then eat it.

Being a slave to recipes means you won't enjoy cooking because you'll stress out when you can't find the right ingredient or if something turns out differently.  You'll also keep finding recipes that turn you off because nobody else is writing for you and your specific desires.  I mean come on, so many of the recipes you can Google are trumped-up foodie nonsense with ingredients you'll have to work to find in your regular grocery store, are overpriced, and (if you're fussy like me) may not even taste that great.

Free yourself.  Learn the basics from articles like the one below, from +Hilah Johnson's book (http://hilahcooking.com/learn-to-cook-book/), and from watching shows like Good Eats by +Alton Brown (if you can find it).  These sources tell you what ingredients are for, how swapping them out changes things, and empower you to feed yourself without always relying on someone else's recipe, someone else's pre-made box, someone else's tastes, someone else's foodie trends.

Better yet: if you do know how to cook, share these sources with a friend or relative.  Teach your kids.  You don't need a recipe book (and honestly every time I see a kids' recipe book I'm disappointed because it's just sweetened-up, mini versions of regular recipes anyway).  You do need time and patience - which are in short supply for me personally at the moment since I also have a toddler - but we strongly advise folks follow the rule Corran and I agreed on when we were first married: no child leaves our household without knowing how the basics of cooking with or without a recipe.

Host of HilahCooking.com -- a weekly webshow!
Introduction
My name is Hilah and I host my own awesome internet cooking show: Hilah Cooking! 

I also just released my fourth cookbook: Learn To Cook. As the title implies, it's all about teaching you how to cook. It's packed with great information for beginners and it includes over 150 recipes for people of all types. 

Plus, it's got cussin' and dirty jokes.

Available at www.learntocookbook.com or on Amazon.

Other things I do are sing, write songs, and goof around. I like sunshine, beer, sea horses, pie, dilapidated buildings, and being a girl!

P.S. Please don't circle me if you are offended by cussin' and dirty jokes!

P.P.S. I am not a robot.

P.P.P.S All jerks and a-holes will be blocked.
