Coffee Bae let us all pretend that, even in 2020, we had a bae of our own to make us complicated and delicious coffee drinks every morning. Plus, she almost had me splurging on a bougie ice machine because the only thing that can save this year is the perfect tiny ice cube in my drinks, okay?!
The most wholesome vegan voice, and that's MY business.
Even the most seasoned carnivore can't help but love Tabitha's warm voice and unfailing optimism, even in 2020. Plus, she has some bomb vegan recipes that use common meat substitutions, so you still ~feel~ like you're eating meat.
3.The bartender that taught us what to drink and how to drink it.
What better time to perfect your cocktail skills than during quarantine, when we literally have nothing else to do but drink? Come for the booze, stay for the vintage clothes. *Sips a cocktail while wearing pajamas.*
This home chef whose epic feasts made us want to be part of her family.
Farrah's elaborate meals for her family not only look SO good but also gave me major inspo for when I can have dinner parties again. This is the level of extra I'm trying to be post-quarantine when I can feed all my friends again.
These drinks transport me to another place, and at this point, I'll do anything to escape 2020/my apartment/my own brain. And if I decide to "practice" making these cocktails just for myself, well, that's my business.
It's kind of hard not to love a self-proclaimed "Woman of Cheese" (even if you're lactose intolerant, as I am), right? Justine does much more than snacks, but let's be real: Snacks have replaced meals in 2020, so keep 'em coming.
One bright light that came out of 2020? The rise of the spectacular charcuterie board. If you just stare at T.J.'s cheese aisle in confusion, don't worry, because luckily, we have this account to teach us the ins and outs of a perfect cheese plate. Hint: The key is the salami river.
Vegan cooking can be scary if you're a meat and/or cheese lover, but this account makes it look easy as vegan apple pie. Seriously, they can help you turn even your favorite carnivorous meal into something plant-based.
With an accent like that, the Pasta Queen can teach me to cook Italian delicacies all quarantine long. From homemade gnocchi to authentic carbonara, my pasta skills have never been stronger. Petition to make a huge bowl of pasta the mascot of 2020?
Between her "10-minute lazy dinners" and her copycat potato soft taco recipe (which basically saved my life when Taco Bell discontinued them), Shreya makes cooking feel easy and fun. Plus, she sprinkles in amazing Indian recipes that rival your favorite takeout spot.
Okay, so we may not all be cooking over an open flame in the woods or using river water to cook our pasta, but don't we all wish we were? The ASMR in these videos immediately soothes my anxiety (of which I had a lot this year) and kind of inspires me to make something other than hot dogs on my next camping trip.
This account truly makes it all, from simple eggs and toast (that still manages to look amazing) to homemade sushi to a vegan ~beet~ Wellington. Whether you began quarantine as a cooking novice or a pro chef, this account has something for you — even if it's just the ability to make you drool.
Hot pot, dumplings, ramen — oh my. Vivian showed us the ins and outs of both classic and modern Chinese cooking and made us HUNGRY. I'd never cooked much Chinese food before 2020, but she makes it look so easy and — dare I say it — better than takeout.
This cocktail-maker who had us celebrating every holiday with a themed drink.
Look, I have to admit, I miss buying overpriced bougie cocktails at restaurants, and I'm not ashamed of that. But re-creating fancy drinks from TikTok has filled that vacant hole in my heart. This account made me want to stock up my bar cart and booze it on up (which I definitely did).
And finally, the pro chef who showed us things we could do with food that we didn't know existed.
Papi may be sad, but he made 2020 a little bit happier. He's a professional chef, so some of his recipes can be a little unrealistic for the average home chef, but watching him make things like fake caviar, fermented hot sauce, and ~clear~ bruschetta is addictive.
