      @Cynthia Chalmers and touched your hair way too much while cooking. tie it back and keep it profesisonal. hair should never be in front. this is how you know you're not in a kitchen cooking for people so much as a camera.

    Brad seems like the kind of guy who does all of his own home improvement and car work, even if it takes 4x as long.

      2:14 - That is the reason that not only do you wear an apron while cooking, but you also never wear tight clothes. If she was wearing skin tight clothes, she still would have been seriously burned.

            this is an unbelievably pointless video. cooked potatoes with a dressing. really mind blowing stuff.

                  This reminds me of the AB recipe for fingerlings that are salt crusted because you boil them in a supersalty brine and then dry them on a rack and they make a beautiful salt crust!

                    So....I absolutely want to make this dish, but one of my children is allergic to walnuts (any tree nut). Is there an alternative nut/other food we could use?

                    • Fabric Fool aka KreepyGrrl

                      Molly, I love watching whatever you do in this fact, I’m crazy about alla y’all. This dish looks amazing, but my problem with it is the walnuts. Allergic. In fact, at the moment I can’t eat *any* nuts (currently toothless, long story I don’t wanna tell), so what could I substitute for the dressing?
                      Thanks for the show!

                          Damn, I misread and thought this was mashed potatoes, not smashed potatoes. I was hoping there was a thing like crispy mashed potatoes in this video. Oh well, atleast I know that Molly has a fish as a dog. Or a dog as a fish. I get those two things easily confused, mind me.

                              It had promise until the sour cream. That ruins everything. So does avocado.

                                              Dump another cup of salt into it. That's what they taste like.

And although I didn't find anchovies + I had to do a sour cream replacement ( plain yogurt + lemon juice + a little bit of vinegar) it absolutely, absolutely tastes amazing!! We had the whole family for dinner and they were absolutely in love with the dish that everyone had a second serve!! Bon appetit became my go-to website/youtube account for cooking! You guys are amazing +made me actually enjoy cooking because of all the science references and explanations lol!
