  1. Hey Andrew!! If you want a real challenge, try a recipe from Shoukigeki no Souma! I know you dont do cartoons or anime but the recipes there are super awesome and i think it will be a good addition to your repertoire

  2. okay so I made this recipe myself and I have to say : a pizza stone is pretty necessary or else cheese will fall in your oven and your entire kitchen is going to be filled with smoke. Also it was delicious.

  3. I know you like to do videos based on movies and TV shows. But if you never made a honeycake, it would be a sin. It is a Russian dessert that is AMAZING. I would love to see your reaction when you taste it. PLEASE DO THIS. You wont be disappointed. Keep up the good work.
