Recipes vs. “Tasty” Videos

Lately I have been seeing a lot of “Tasty” videos on FaceBook. These are super short videos (sometimes shown in fast forward) that teach you how to make recipes. I decided to do a little research on them and I found out their actually created by BuzzFeed. (Which would explain my obsession with them.) I know that they are okay to share on my blog because BuzzFeed shows many different ways to “share” them on YouTube. It also says “share with your loved ones” in the description. I think my fellow bloggers qualify.

This recipe seriously looks amaaaazing! (I can’t wait to buy some bacon and try it out.) Have you guys noticed that there has been a jump towards these types of quick tutorial videos instead of the original typed out recipes?  I think this is a step in the right direction. People have less time and would rather learn how to do something in 33 seconds instead of an hour.

These quick tutorial videos work great for simple recipes but they get a  little out of control when they teach you how to make something a little more complicated. It’s almost comical when tutorials make something that’s actually pretty difficult look extremely easy and fast. (Like this Hummus recipe!) In Tasty’s defense they do let the viewer know that the complete recipe is located in the description box. Thank God because I don’t think I could keep up with just watching this video- as easy as it makes it look.

I encourage ya’ll to try out a Tasty recipe this week! Some are only two ingredients! It’s pretty rewarding cooking for yourself- or invite a couple friends over!
