  1. After uploading and re-watching this video all I want to know is…why is the salsa by “Trader José” but the taco spice isn’t? Life is full of mystery.

  2. I love coconut curry! Never realized how easy it is to make! I also am going to hunt down those frozen veggies, bc baby corm and water chesnuts are my fav too! Thank you for this recipe!

  3. When I’m super lazy, like “can barely be bothered to heat leftovers up”, I do this.
    Cook rice, put in frozen veg and sliced mushroom in cooker to warm through, crumble and mix soft tofu into the rice, add soy sauce.
    It’s got different textures from the veg, and the mushroom tofu and soy sauce each bring flavor to the rice. It’s not half bad for something that takes 2 minutes of conscious effort

  4. I love how quick your vids are and how it corresponds how quick it actually is to prepare!
    Keep doing you girl! If king love it! Nothing like watching a vid, and it takes longer to watch than to prepare lollol

  5. Just tried the orzo and lentil meal. My lentils were still hard so I may have to try something different next time. Other than that, it was very yummy! Thank you

  6. Since you asked: my favorite pasta shape is rotini, hands down. Close second place is penne, then little shells, elbow, bow ties and fettuccini that order. I am not into spaghetti or vermicelli. Although I do sort of like ramen noodles (weird, I know). I don’t make lasagna often enough to consider it a favorite.
