    When she put that 13th meatball in there that was stupid because she should known that there was a chance of crosscontamating and that's kind of funny because I'm 11 and she's a adult not to be rude or anything

    I would just like to point out the Sopranos-y ending to this video is suspect. Which one of you spilled on yourself and snuck into the editing room to cut that footage? How can I even trust any of you anymore?

  • Jacqueline Underwood

    Okay but no one is going to mention that she calls it pesto and goes through five minutes of explaining why it IS pesto, and then the editor passive aggressively calls it “sauce”? 😂😂

    Got a new oven and decided to make mini lobster tails[Costco]. Actually READ the oven manual [cause, we ARE talking lobster tails], and the manual said to leave the oven door ajar while broiling. Lobster tails turned out nicely.

    May I suggest boiling those meatballs instead of frying them... unless you want to be making trips back and forth to the bathroom. Nevertheless, it's a great recipé.

    • Alan Morris

      @Sarah Allen
      Steaming the meatballs is a great idea too! Try to get rid of as much grease as possible.

    When I was in culinary school one of my colleagues was a super taster too, and I felt the same way Carla does. Like, am I even tasting the food I eat? This guy experiences my entire career on an entirely different level than I do, what the hell am I even doing?
    Carla, you're not alone.
    Oh, also my brother is one too, but he is one of those "eat to live, not live to eat" types.

    honestly, supertasters are pretty common (vastly more so in children and pregnant women because evolution) and while there are specific tests you can do to find out if you are one, the easiest way is just like take a sip of black coffee. If it's unbearably bitter, you're probably a supertaster.
    Sincerely, the person whose senior research project in college was supertasters.
    P.S. like 25% of people are supertasters. 50% are tasters (which means like they can taste bitterness but it's not like crazily gross). and 25% are non tasters (which means they either can't taste bitterness at all or it's just really faint)

    I used to be a supertaster but have become a non taster, which is great when I accidentally burn grilled cheese from getting distracted, because I can't really taste the burnt. Also I can chug black coffee. It's a real power move.
