I am addicted to cooking shows, especially the competition ones, but I know I’d never survive against a timeclock and a group of cutthroat competitors. For a while, I was also addicted to the show The Chew on ABC, a daytime multi-host show about food, cooking, home, entertaining.
One of the recurring segments on the show, at least when I was last watching, was with Carla Hall, called Can You Blend This?
She’d take a bunch of weird leftovers, blend them together, and make her cohosts taste it. Interesting faces were made. Sometimes the answer was yes, sometimes definitely no.
As a vegetarian, I always wanted more vegetarian alternatives, or at least not to be made fun of. Then I went vegan, and I felt totally left out of the Food Network world!
My dream is to have a segment called Can I Vegan That? But I’ve never made a video before.
Here is my trial run. Clearly, I need to up the production values. A second person to hold the iPhone would be nice! Bob was taking a nap until the end; I was on my own. Until cats develop opposable thumbs, I’m without assistance. And someone (not a cat, thanks) to do hair and makeup would be even better!
Brownies, not a huge challenge, but an easy one to start off with and I happened to have the ingredients and a sweet tooth. Next up? I’m open to suggestions.
So, grab some non-GMO popcorn and turn down the lights. Here we go:

The brownies really did turn out good. Moist and super fudgy, just the way brownies should be. No cakey brownies for me!
Now, what’s for dinner? I have asparagus, mushrooms, potatoes…
