New YouTube Series: Chef Would Be Proud

New YouTube series: Chef Would be Proud 

You’ve read my bucket list posts and seen how long my list is. This brings me to today’s blog post. Where I tell you all about how 2021 is the year where I will attempt to complete most of the items on my food bucket list. 

As I sat down and wrote a long list of recipes that I wanted to recreate, I have decided that it would be fun to document my journey on my YouTube channel. Thus my new series “Chef Would Be Proud” was born!

For the past three months, I have watched countless food channels and researched countless recipes, famous chefs, popular recipes, recipes from all over the world really. In hopes to create a long bucket list for me to go over with you. 

My plan is to post one video a week as well as a blog post with an explanation of how the recipe went and how you can make it yourself!
