Stephen and David,
As a biochem grad student (and kind of a nerd), I love the science you guys threw in there. The food looks great, your house is adorable, and you two are somewhat pleasant to look at yourselves.

I’ll definitely be trying the short ribs soon. And probably the squash/sweet potato dish after I’m done losing weight – or maybe for Thanksgiving.

(Are you sure you’re supposed to be using metal utensils in that enameled pan? =] )

Also, I just re-watched part of it, and realized you used the word scrumtrulescent. Maybe my favorite cooking video ever.

Thanks for the responses guys, really appreciate it! As for the metal tongs scratching the enamel….nice, I’ll keep that in mind! We had posted the recipe list on youtube, but it’s not showing up, so if anyone wants the actual breakdown of the ingredients I’d be happy to post them in the comments section. Enjoy!
