One of the best things to happen on YouTube is the debut of Judy Ann Santos’ cooking channel. It’s so refreshing to see a celebrity—who also happens to be a real chef!—create content that’s funny, relatable, and most of all, educational. I think the reason I’m so drawn to her videos is because she makes cooking look so easy. For a lot of people, myself included, whipping up food is a big and scary challenge, and watching her videos are a great source of comfort that you *can* actually do it—it’s just a matter of taking the first step of learning how to turn on the gas range, LOL.
Here, I listed down some of the best of Juday’s cooking episodes that you should definitely try for yourself:
Breakfast Silog Special
Who can say no to a hearty Filipino silog breakfast? Not me. Learn how to make tapa, tocino, bangus, and more to make the best breakfast spread for people you love.
Sweet Breakfast Treats
I obviously purposely put the two breakfast videos first because it’s my absolute favorite meal of the day. Here’s how to make sweet breakfast treats like those famous soufflé pancakes and Nutella French toast. Totally drooling now.
Quick And Healthy Meals
You know what’s harder that cooking food? Cooking healthy food. We hear and read so much about how to prep these on social media, but it all sounds so complicated. Say no more, because here’s Juday’s take on chocolate chia pudding, muesli, hummus and veggie sticks, naked chicken burrito, and more.
