In Praise of those cooking videos

May 15th, 2017 · No Comments · Family Life

Is anyone else simply fascinated by those cooking videos on FaceBook?

I usually look at FB when I’m sitting in my car waiting on my kid.  Or doing something else which doesn’t require my full attention.  I can scroll through on my phone which doesn’t play videos unless I click the link.

But occasionally?   I get on FB on a real computer.  Those videos play automatically.  And?


I don’t know what it is about them.  I can scroll right past the cute cat videos.  The cut dog videos? No problem.  The Kickstarter Videos that are just like the “As Seen On TV” section of Walgreens or Target? I Never even slow down.

But those cooking ones?  It’s like a train wreck.  I have to stop.  And stare.

It’s not because the food is particularly good.  The recipes I’ve tried from them have just been kind of “meh.”  But somehow watching two hands, cook food, in one pot, over a hot plate?  I just can’t look away.

Is that just me?
