  1. Very impressive you make your own rolls. While its obviously much better for you……………….I’m gonna skip that part and follow your recipe after that 🙂

  2. This sounds yummy. But if you do not have a mixer and/or regular knowledge of baking.. How will these ever work in a SHTF situation… Good REcipe… Good Music. Baking is an art.

  3. Exelent presentation. Very informative. Olive salad on muffalatta, olives seem like they’d be right at home on Italian beef. Didn’t know the true name of sport peppers, love Chi-style hotdogs. Got some pickled veggies by mistake the other day, prfect use. This may be the best cooking vid. I’ve ever seen.

  4. @mynameis677 Thanks for the compliment. I have no training in cooking. I just learned by trying to cook the things that I like to eat. Thanks for watching!

  5. Damn mispost, I was trying to say try a muffalata at Masperos Cafe. I prefer them to CG because I like my sandwich heated. I get over to the city at least once a month to take my son to see his grandparents.

  6. I do almost all my measuring when cooking by weight. I have a neat app for my phone that has a database to tell you what different ingredients weigh per volume so I weigh out milk, water, whatever… Makes everything very consistent from batch to batch. My scale never leaves the counter. Heck I even weigh out my sons bottles…

  7. @BladeReviewscom I usually do my own deli meats. 10X better than buying the processed/pressed stuff and way cheaper. Deli slicer makes all very easy. I think that model cost me $80 and I’ve used it fairly heavily for 2 years. Made back the money on the slicer just from all the money saved on deli meat. Thanks for watching! The way I figure, you gotta eat, so you might as well learn to cook so you can eat well.

  9. Oh man great video. That deli slicer is really cool. I do a little cooking myself so I’ve greatly enjoyed all the food centric vids you have been making.
