You know a cooking show is good when you’re vegan but still find yourself watching the episode on braised short ribs. Chef and food writer Alison Roman brings her signature red lipstick and sense of humor to this new YouTube series, filming the making of a recipe from her Substack newsletter or one of her two cookbooks, Dining In and Nothing Fancy, every Tuesday from her home kitchen. There are appetizers (including a no-blend potato-leek soup), mains (eggplant parm for two), desserts (sticky cinnamon rolls), meat dishes (those short ribs), and vegetarian ones (brothy beans). One thing they are not is particularly healthy, but who needs a recipe for a salad anyway? —J.V.
