Thank you for all the quick recipes that are easy to follow! The fact that you use ingredients that are easily accessible is a great plus!!

AB your channel is a real blessing. I never had the chance to cook alongside my grandma. She passed a year after my high school graduation. By the time I would see her, her meals were already complete. You make cooking fun and simple. Easy to follow. Appreciate all you do!!! Blessings to you and your family and team!



AB, I wanna say thank you. I made these ribs for my husband and got the best compliment ever!!!! He says “baby, your ribs are better than mine” This was my very 1st time grilling ribs and only my 2nd time grilling myself. My dad used to grill all the time and would be super proud to see me now 🙂 thanks for all the help and easy-to-follow videos!

This chef makes fire recipes that are easy to follow and inexpensive. Definitely my go-to youtube chef! My favorite recipe to make is the Oven Baked BBQ Ribs!
