  • My Auntie flips a wooden chair over in too if the table and hangs the strips over the chair rails. I like the coat hanger idea though!

  • We had an Amish nanny that lived with us for a while when we were kids.  We went to her family farm and her mom made the best noodles I ever had.  I want to try this recipe to see if this is the same as her’s.

  • Dear Bev, I had saved this video for when I had some time to watch. This afternoon after putting the ingredients in the Crock-Pot from one of your recipes vegetable and meat, I decided to make a cup of coffee and watch this. Oh Bev, such wonderful memories of a 10 year old girl watching her mother make noodles and chicken. She died later that year. I have been reluctant to attempt home made noodles but I think I have the guts to try now. My mother used to make them wider than normal and thicker. She dried them for quite awhile. A big pot of boiling water with a cooked, till it fell off the bones, chicken inside and I remember how when she dropped the noodles in they would puff up a little. Thanks for making this a wonderful memory and not just a sad ending. Love you.��

  • If that feeds your crew 6 meals you are one lucky woman…lol I make, or at least try to make, enough chicken and noodle soup to have left overs. Never happens, never. 4 cups of flour and 6 eggs and I still never have left overs. I’m pretty sure they fill their legs up first.

  • Bev…i throw in a couple tablespoon of chicken broth in my noodles…i love that mason chair quilt on your kitchen wall beautiful

  • Thanks Mrs V. I have no equipment, however I’ve a rolling pin so will be trying this for sure. Thank you. How long do you think they’d store in the freezer?

  • Enjoy eating homemade noodles. Maybe a little work to make but, so worth the effort. Thank-you for sharing this recipe with us all.

  • My MIL who died at the age of 88 in 1987 always made them by hand! In the old days that’s the only way you could have them! She learned from her mother, and baked and cooked the same way her whole life. I still have a few pieces of the gorgeous rugelach she made just a few days before she died. Hubby finds them every so often in the freezer when hes looking for a snack, and asks me why I saved them, can’t eat them. Just can’t bring myself to throw away a precious memory. They were so delicious! Her dough was like velvet!

  • Love home made noodles, even if I know how, have to watch you first thing in the morning with my coffee…Your my wake up princess. HUGGS

  • I haven’t made noodles in a while and now I have the bug to do it. I dried mine on the clothes rack but I might try my Excalibur at that low low setting. Now if I can think of a way to use my Food Saver to seal them without them being crushed in the process, any idea’s on that? Love it when you tell stories. My favorite is the Christmas morning when your Dad called you over to look at the bird’s. Money was tight for your family but that was a treasure of a gift that has stayed with you all of these year’s. Your Dad must have been a loving Daddy with a heart of gold. A big hug, Linda

  • Thanks for taking me down memory lane. I remember when I was about 8 (45 years ago) my grandmother having me stand on a chair next to her making egg noodles. They are my favorite. I still make them the way she taught me. Flour on the counter with a well in the center and add my eggs and salt, then add flour to eggs slowly until mixed. Roll them out with a rolling pin as thick or thin as you want. Roll the dough up and cut with a knife. They never dried for very long, we always seemed to use them soon after making them.

  • I smiled when you told the story about making egg noodles by rolling them out and cutting them with a sharp knife. I watched my mother do it in the 1950s and 1960s. I did it for my own family in the 1970s, and was thrilled to graduate to a hand crank machine in the 1980s. Now, I do it with my KitchenAid mixer attachment. Such fond memories! Thank you for that, and also for the tip about dehydrating them. I was just thinking of doing that. Now, I know to set the dehydrator for 95 degrees for only a couple of hours. Thanks, again. Much love!

  • I remember helping my Mum make egg noodles WAY back in the day. She used the rolling pin method you mentioned. We laid them out to dry on the table. Talk about time consuming. But, the end product was worth the work. Thanks for the memory (or flashback)!

  • Ah yes, the old-fashioned ‘God-given hands’ method. Make a well in a pile of flour, place your eggs in the middle, gradually bringing the flour into the center, mixing with the eggs until you get the consistency desired.

  • Now whoa back hahahah You can’t be putting long noodles in beef stew/or soup you have to make them square, when you have the dough folded up/or roll up don’t unfold and after you make the cut for long noodles cut a cross the other way turning them into squares. leave on the rolling cloth that you rolled the dough out on in the first place flour them well and just keep turning them over every half hour or so {just using a fan blowing across them until they dry} {Grandma didn’t have a fan but my Mother-law did}. put them in a jar /or a brown paper bag tied at the top and hung them on a wire that had been wrapped around the stove pipe that cross the kitchen ceiling. The long noodles she used one of her quilt frame boards with cloths over them then the noodles laid across/over them they were hung off the ceiling too. I was a kid and I got to watch Grandma working away singing her heart out. Happy as pig in poop. Old memories, how awesome is that. thanks They made a dish of noodle and tomatoes, there would be so many tomatoes coming off the garden she would be canning and run out of clean jars and make it for lunch and fresh bread and home made butter. Are you hungry yet? I got to stop this ByeBye.

  • I remember when I was a little girl helping my mom make noodles. She would put towels on the back of the kitchen chairs and dry them. So easy to make and sooo good. Brought back fond memories. Thank you for all the wonderful videos.

  • I too make home made noodles…agree that they are easy…sometimes can be finicky! Using a food processor as you did then I roll and cut them with a traditional pasta machine. Lightly dust them and then freeze….next time will try drying them for the pantry shelf….thanks for the idea Bev!

  • So glad to find this interview!! We love Dr. Mark! He has helped so many people in our area!! Thank-you, Dr. Mark, I was just one you helped! I’m very thankful!

  • I am just about 60. And my family has never taken the time to dry our noodles. We roll them, cut them, and throw them into boiling broth. I even roll out a lot of them. Then cook them in plain water. Once they are cooked, then I dehydrate them for later. Vacuum them in a mason jar… Try that and see what you think. Love your channel. ��

  • I love noodles not an expert yet in making them. and when you said you were reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, I’ve not read the book but I sure love the movie!


  • Omg yummmm!! Everything looks good! That cuban pork dinner brought me back home to my miami roots!! Im gonna have to make some now!

  • Finally another cooking video!!! I like all your tea breaks and how How does it and all the rest of your videos but…. it feels like Christmas when you give us a cooking show

  • Yes!! Love these! I just added a plantain to my grocery pickup order. I’ve only ever had plantain chips. I love doing cook once eat twice with meatballs too. Another favorite is chili. One night we’ll eat chili and then we can do chili mac, nachos, or baked potatoes.

  • when my kids were younger and we actually had leftovers (they’re teenagers now and eat everything!) I would use leftover spaghetti sauce and make french bread pizzas.

  • Hi Amanda, these were such great recipes and ideas! Everything looked so colorful, fresh and delicious yet pretty straightforward and quick to make! I love your content and voiceover and think you are just adorable and so down-to-earth! I also love that you always cook with what you have and if you don’t have that ingredient handy, then you just live without it and move on! We make carnitas and cilantro lime rice but never thought to make them into Cubans or nachos! We do have leftover King’s Hawaiian rolls from time to time because my son likes them with his lunch but doesn’t always finish the whole package. This will be a great way to use them! One of the cook onceeat twice meals we make in our house is pot roast then turn the leftover gravy and roast into beef stroganoff or leftover mashed potatoes into Shepherd’s pie! Hope you keep cooking and posting!

  • Yesssss! Now this is how I cook! I’m all about the cook once, eat for a few days life �� they all looked delicious but that pork meal looked bomb ����

  • Did this video glitch a lot for anyone else? All the other videos I’ve watched today have been fine. Wanted to know if it was just me.

  • Everything looked so good! We love nachos around here, too!�� You should try plaintain chips with guac… Weird combo, but so good!��

  • Hi, do you mind sharing the brand/model of the slow cooker you use? I have a cheaper off brand one that overcooks everything and gives things this weird metallic taste. So I wanna make sure the next one I buy is a good one lol. Your slow cooker recipes look so good ����

  • i read something about cilantro, that it’s something genetic that for certain people it tastes like soap-so i guess your poor son has that gene! https://www.cookinglight.com/news/why-does-ina-garten-hate-cilantro

  • Definitely putting cilantro lime rice on my meal plan, I don’t know why I haven’t cooked it, I am with you I love cilantro. I love your description of the plantains you are spot on LOL!! That nacho sauce �� love these cook once eat 1000 times meals!

  • I was born in the 40s and my mom used to throw a dish towel on the kitchen table and roll out the dough and cut noodles that she hung over the backs of the kitchen chairs until they dried. Nothing better than chicken and noodles the next day.

  • Low carb meals in hospital is a no brainer. Are traditionally trained dietitians impeding the transition to low carb hospital food?
