Recipe videos that rock for lazy chefs

Recipe videos are a dime a dozen on the internet right now and if you love to cook, but you don’t have much time, they can be perfect!

I have a confession to make. I’m addicted to watching recipe videos on Instagram. I could do it for hours. In fact, my very first Instagram collection was simply titled ‘food’, because it’s only right. Before Instagram introduced categories, I would save the recipe videos on my phone’s notepad, because that’s what a true addict does. Hah!

You’ve probably spotted these recipe videos all over the internet. Buzzfeed is filled to the brim with recipe videos and now there are accounts from all over the world mimicking the style and I love it. I decided to share my love for these simple recipes by showing off a few of my favourites here.

The thing about these videos and why they work for lazy chefs (like me) is that even if the recipe is complicated, the fact that it can be compacted into a short, cute video means I’m willing to try it! Whether it works out as being simple or not, the video made it look super easy, so I’m going to try it. (I know I’m not alone in this.)

Super simple and delicious ‘focaccia’ pizza recipe

Don’t you just love it when a mistake becomes something so much better than what you had started out with? That’s how this recipe that I created came about. I had never intended to create a pizza recipe, but that’s what this eventually transformed into, and it’s a hit! I’m always looking for the quickest and easiest recipes when making anything, because as much as I love to cook, I have absolutely no patience.

I was attempting to make something entirely different when this recipe was born. I can’t recall whether it was scones or tortillas, but either way it flopped. However, out of the flop a new recipe was born that is so easy and quick, it’s almost too good to be true. I’ve decided to call this pizza recipe “focaccia pizza” because this is not your average pizza. Instead the base is a bit thicker and slightly more breadlike. All in all, it’s completely customisable to what you and your family enjoy, plus it’s ready in only 30 minutes!
