For all newcomers to Cooking for Amateurs, we just want to note that all our recipes come from www.recipezaar.com. We make the recipe, then do our signature Taste Test. To defy other ratings systems, and to make it easier for kids to understand, we do not use the 0-10 scale. Instead, we use a simple thumbs up, down, or sideways. So watch the episodes, and please involve children - we do it for them (mostly)!

Cooking for Amateurs Episode 3.1 - Lemon Squares

In the next few days, I'll be making posts to our blog with our episodes embedded. This is for your comfort, in case for some reason you want to go to our blog and not Youtube. But, if you haven't been reading recent posts, I am speaking to Eli's class tomorrow, and hopefully some kids will want to watch the episodes. However, I don't want to subject them to the horrors of Youtube, so they will be able to watch them here.

Film Spree!

Today, I seem to be going on a filming rampage. I'm taping some reviews and tutorials for games and stuff, and they will be put up on Youtube regularly. I remade our Picross tutorial, and I feel that it made it way better. I'm also trying to cut them down to 10 minutes, one Youtube video. Also, something's up with our film editor, and so the CFA isn't up yet. We're working on it!

CFA Trailer Release

Hello! The CFA trailer was just released on Youtube (see post below), so search for Fuzzman1014, and watch it! E&N ditched me for the library, so we have to wait for them to return to film the next show. But we will film it today, and it will hopefully be up tonight. And the BIGGEST news - I now have a computer! It was just built two days ago, and it is great - it actually runs the latest games perfectly! So I made the new theme song - it's pretty much the same, but a little more funky, and it is in the trailer! And more good news - I figured out how to embed Youtube videos into our posts - so please tell us if this doesn't work.

CFA Trailer

Hey guys, since there won't be an episode this week, I thought I would start work on a "trailer" for Cooking for Amateurs. Sort of like a mashup of the best (and worst) of Cooking for Amateurs. If you're reading this, and have a favorite episode or moment, email us at cookingforamateurs@gmail.com, and tell us what you think. This will also be a project for Eli's class. He's in kindergarten, and the week after our mid-winter break is his "VIP Week". He gets to choose a subject, and bring in something (or someone) for show-and-tell. So we decided to show a mashup of CFA, and serve blueberry muffins (from episode 7). So watch for that in the next week or two, and please send us any tips!

Long Time No See!

Sorry we haven't been posting lately/ever. If you haven't been watching www.youtube.com/Fuzzman1014, Cooking for Amateurs is currently on episode 14, and we'll keep going. But alas, there will not be one this week (today), as I have an insane amount of homework to finish. But next weekend, the CFA team will be on mid-winter break, and will be happy to give you yet another episode of Cooking for Amateurs!
