My number one nemesis to personal productivity: YouTube. Dan can attest that I have fallen down the rabbit hole of YouTube videos on more than one occasion, and most of the time it's food videos (but also funny pets...). I've mentioned FoodWishes previously, but my other two addictions are Cooking with Dog and Binging with Babish/Feast of Fiction. Cooking with Dog is brilliant because it is a collection of instructional videos where Chef (an adorable Japanese home cook) whips up traditional and local Japanese cuisine. The best part is that each video is narrated in English (but with a French-sounding accent) by the dearly missed Francis, a poodle, who hangs out on a stool next to Chef throughout the meal prep process. Binging with Babish and Feast of Fiction were grouped together as one addiction because both of these shows are themed around food from movies and TV. Odds are, if you're wondering how they made something on a show or what the dish in that film might have tasted like, they've got a video for you.
If you're willing to pay the teeny subscription for it, I highly recommend NYT Cooking. Not only will you have access to some of the most tested and annotated recipes on the internet, you will also be able to save/sort them in your Recipe Box and receive these super awesome "What to Cook This Week" emails that really put a dent in meal planning. I have found some recipes on here that I will be cooking/baking for the rest of my life, especially the milk bread featured in the picture on the left - tied with challah for my most favorite bread.
