Fun Podcast

I am a fan of Mrs. O’Neil’s blog, so when she linked to this project, I subscribed immediately. As someone who doesn’t take much time to cook at home, I like the simple, no-nonsense approach to unveiling some of the mysteries of the kitchen. I generally listen in the car, but have actually gone back and re-listened to a show while I was in the kitchen at home attempting to make the dish described in that week’s podcast. Some weeks instead of tackling an entire meal, she will explain common recipe terms and techniques, which is also helpful. If you need to understand the difference between “caramelizing” and “browning,” or understand how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg sandwich, the Cooking in Real Time podcast is a great place to start. One of the most endearing aspects of the Cooking in Real Time podcast is the home-made and decidedly low-budget production. The listener is right there when things go wrong just like the probably will at home in your own kitchen. Overall, I enjoy Cooking in Real Time and look forward to each episode.


I am just learning how to cook and this podcast is brilliant. It's in real time-she's chopping right along with you, and telling good stories while she's at it. The pace is completely realistic, and if you want, you can just pause if you need the extra time. Just made the pad thai, and I swear I"ll never order it by take out again!

Entertaining and no-nonsense

Great lessons and tips that cut through the fog.
