Forever fave

Funny, informative, silly, smart. It’s been around forever for a reason, and I’ve been listening that long because I never fail to laugh or learn something new about food or cooking or life. It took me this long to write a review because I assumed everyone already was listening/knows it’s the best.

Bank advertising is super tacky

Love your show, but don’t do advertisements for big banks that are known for being evil corporations.

I love this !

I really like these two! I’ve learned a lot. I’ve laughed my head off. And I’ve tried a few new things based on their conversations. Recommended!
