Or, you can plan the menu, asking each guest to bring. The perfect Friendsgiving should be everything that a holiday with crazy family members and a ton of travel is not — relaxed, stress-free and EASY.

That includes the cooking, too. Preparing a full Thanksgiving meal may conjure up scenes from Christmas Vacation, but it doesn’t have to.If the thought of spending this Thanksgiving kicking back with your besties over a few (or several) glasses.

    But brussel sprouts, can’t even stand the smell of them cooking.

  • A few tips if you are starting HIIT:

    1. Make sure to warm up before you start(it’s crucially important)
    2. HIIT is too intense so doing it everyday can cause serious injuries so doing it 3 times a week is enough (during the intervals you body will recover which is again important)
    3. Time limit shouldn’t be more than 30 minutes and I hope you know why 😉
    4. Last but not the least, cool down after doing HIIT.


    FIGHTING!! ����

  • 200 degrees for 30 minutes, try 425 for ten then 400 for 20. 200 degrees is so wrong. If you want you’re puff pastry to melt instead of puff and cook, do 200 degrees.

  • went from 130 pounds to almost 110 pounds with the help of chloe thing, madfit, a spin bike, healthy food, and lots of water. my goal is 100-105 pounds

  • I have no idea where Chloe gets those calorie calculations from. I wear a fitness tracker and, while completing the video with almost 100% effort for the entire video, I only burned about 66 calories.

  • Happy Sunday folks! Really hope you enjoy the video. A lot of people really enjoyed the Christmas mini-series last year so we’re getting started with a traditional Yorkshire style Christmas dinner! Which is pretty much a regular Christmas dinner with added Yorkshire puddings!

  • Wow 33M views.. You both famous. I recently just watched a movie and Lorenzo is in it. He’s extra but look at him now.. proud of you…

  • Only watch as it’s hard to believe your stomach can hold SO MUCH FOOD!!!! Half a bacon sandwich and I’m DONE!!! The less I eat, the less I want to eat. Fasting just shrinks my stomach. Fortunately, stress curbs my appetite. How the hell do you feel after a belly-full of food?? Can’t be good and you’re not even obese!


  • hello, OKAY so someone please tell me my watch is wrong! hehehe. i did this and i know that i didnt give it my best! But my watch says i burned 14 cals!!!!! HAHAHAH omg i’m pretty sure it must like MUST BE KIDDING. EDIT: i did it only once? i should do it more? ;(

(Brown glass jar w/ Yellow label) I googled, asked Siri and searched Amazon… That’s all I could think of. Does anyone know what brand of English Mustard was Gordon was using? I would sincerely appreciate any help. ��

  • well frank. i think u learn one of the secrets of asian cooking hahaha most very good braised dishes uses softdrinks as base to their sauces

  • Hi Randy… My name is Sohini. I am from India. I started watching your show recently and I love it.
    Watching you and Leonard has become a part of my life.
    I noticed in some of your videos that you enjoy warm rice with curry, gravy, etc. Do try making your rice with two pods of cardamom, an inch of cinnamon stick, half a teaspoon of cumin seeds n a bay leaf sauteed in a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the washed and soaked rice to it. Add some salt to taste. Warm water(for each part of rice, two parts of water). Cover n Cook.
    Hope you like it ��

  • Has Randy never had cabbage rolls? lmao. Those are staple in my polish family. Check out this recipe.


  • I was trying the 1000 skips a day Challenge but on day 1 I hurt my ankle REALLY BAD I could barely walk on it, so I quit that challenge, and I was on on day 11 of the 2 week shred I was sooo sad that couldn’t finish it, TODAY is 12 Day of it and I decided to do this workout 3 times, and my ankle needs to chill, like, big times

  • This entire video:


  • A Polish friend of mine taught me what she called “Polish science!” All it means is to shave away the coarse cabbage vein down to a whispy thread and yes, I wondered about using cabbage in Canada as we find it really hard to find collard greens. (Cross over the border at Buffalo and it aboundeth). Go figure. Same thing with grits! Also, Gordon Ramsay is a psychotic and disgustingly rude, four letter purveying piece of �� and I have nothing to do with enabling him! Sorry to be negative. As you probably know by now, ah jes luf your videos and am always very happy to see a new offering. Thanks for this and Happy Yanksgiving (we Canucks who have the real Thanksgiving in October (harvest festival), differentiate your rather late celebration to our au courant one). Cheers, Colin. P.s. Graham Kerr (Care) is the Galloping Gourmet!

  • Poor thing, struggling to be Hamptonite. WTF is a Sous Vide vaccuum sealer? Who the F cares? Plus, no one needs a fn Vita-fn-mix to puree a g-damn carrot. love.

  • Holy moly. What a great way to start to the holiday. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Happy holidays from the Wheeler family to yours.

  • Yo her making fun of herself and her “man” doesn’t even compliment her at all. As a matter of a fact, he doesn’t even look at her in general

  • Bonjour mes ami(es)! Thanks for all the nice suggestions in this episode. As usual it is not just about the good looking and yummy food, the pleasure of watching it all about “la bonne humeur de Randy,” la joie de vivre qu’elle dégage et de la complicité de l’équipe. Bravo for the accomplishment of the theater! Wishing all of you guys and of course Leonard a Wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving! Much love and appreciation your way!!! (( hugs ))

  • does she at least take multi mineral and vitamin tablets? because i have not seen her eat anything like fruit or veg and hardly any meat, thats going to kill her really young

  • Matt Stonie: finishes in 42 minutes

    Me: HAH I can so beat that!
    Later that’s day…
    Me: ok ok I took fives bites I’m done right?

  • u really need to leave the broad at home all u do is talk when she is around instead of seeing how fast u can set a record or beat one

  • Was just at Hell’s Kitchen just 2 weeks ago and had the Beef Wellington for the first time. I can say without a doubt it want so amazing and can’t wait to go back next year and have it again. The whole experience leaves you wanting for nothing. This was nothing short of a grand slam.

  • Gorgon is either trying to burn calories as he’s making this video because he has 150 cals to go before he can eat another meal. Or he’s had a line

  • Aaaaaahhhhh the hot carrot soup in plastic������������ don’t get me wrong. I love this channel but it’s such a ocd thing for me. Lol
    Also…when it comes to the chicken…. whether it be grass fed, organic, or just regular chicken….they all end up at the same place and there’s no humane way to kill someone who wants to live. Just sayin’. Let’s not lie to ourselves. ����‍♀️

  • New subscriber and loved this Christmas dinner video! I can’t wait for this year! You guys are so cute together! Of the few videos I’ve watch so far, that’s the most I’ve seen Mrs Beard eat! Way-to-go, love!!

  • I did your two weeks shreds shred challenge and this workout during this pandemic with 82 kg heavy and yeah it help me to reduced almost 7kilos. Now my weight got struck at 75 kilo. Could you recommend me any high intensity workout at home. For your information I am also following the intermittent fasting 6/18 since may 2020 with your workouts. It really helped me to reached this stage. I would be forever grateful if you could give me some tips to loose some more.

  • Hey, I have just started doing this workout. Can I do this workout everyday for weight loss? Is it safe to do that? Please suggest

  • I am less than 3 minutes in and I am drooling at this one. That looked so bloody tasty. I would be up for joining you on the next one of these. To be fair to Mrs beard, she did clear a lot, for her that was one of the best efforts I have seen.

  • S0, Do I Adore Christmas.. we are big kids at heart,, but the food is Awesome,, everyday s Christmas.. age youve got A good Appetite..
    well done Kid

  • hahaha not going to lie but the way the camera angle is set and the way you (Adam) have picked around things it looks like mrs B killed it fair play ��

  • Welcome back! We missed you!
    This vid has just about got me convinced to invest in a sous vide. Loved the green packets idea. As a Southerner, I’ve spent my entire life with collards and never seen anything like that. I so want to try this.
    And was that the theme from My Three Sons you were humming? Please keep the movie lines coming.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and the team! So much fun to watch.

  • First time I’ve seen this video beared, no green beans though but I love sprouts, the thing is why the fxxk is Mrs Beard using a knife and fork with the Yorkshires, sort her out pal if you can, well done with the dinner

  • I thought I’ve been doing exercise this while uh! This is the real one 10 minuets is like 10 years, thank you so much beautiful I will come back for the results

  • Every time I have finished this workout I felt like a complete badass!! I do workout and this one is killer, I feel so complete after this and it’s only 10 minutes.

  • Yang ane gk habis pikir
    Apa sih rahasia dia sampe sekarang makan sak duabrek tp tetep kueciiiiiiil tenan?
    kliatan banget dr pipinya tuh
    padahal bertahun tahun makan banyak dia ��
    kasih tau rahasianya donk min ��

  • BRO THAT MEAT IS MOVING, IT’S RAW!, dang white people be eating medium rare and shit like that, but NO COOK IT THROUGHLY! YOU WILL LIVEEEEE AND NOT DIE FROM SALMONELLA!!

  • Frank: so you gotta shoot the chicken with 3 inch mag with shoutgun right in its back so the bullet doesn’t ruin the the beautiful meat in the front

    Lorenzo: clown laughing noises

  • So I only burnt up 121 calories with this workout. Does that mean that I am the most handsome and buffest 2 legged marsupial in all of the outback?

  • Forgive me not reading all the comments, but just curious how much was this?
    Quite convinced I could have done this one myself or pretty close.

  • This is a year old and your hairy Christmas specials are getting me in the mood for this year!!!
    And you know when someone is full when they don’t even drink the rest of their soda!
    Good on ya Mrs. Beard!!!

  • shes too damn picky with food imo, couldn’t ever marry someone who’d ask you to eat stuff yet wouldn’t do it herself, regardless if your a pro eater or not

  • This would’ve made me hungry but all I could think is that by the time the plate was loaded all of it was probably cold which is gross.

  • Why did the sausage inside number 3 look like dog food? It was grey. And why did you put the gravy on the outside of the bun? Wouldn’t it be smarter over the fries? I wish I could try that roasted garlic chicken pasta! It looked the best!

  • Stunning video footage! Hereabouts at Y&S FOOD! we all love to catch this style of content. We create Travel & Food video too, anywhere in the world, and therefore we are frequently seeking inspirations and perhaps ideas. Thank You.
