Slow-Cooker Banana Bread

  Slow-Cooker Banana Bread I love to use my slow cooker. I started to experiment with making bread in it so I wouldn’t have to heat up my kitchen by turning on my oven. It’s so easy and simple. I make this slow-cooker banana bread all the time. —Nicole Gackowski, Antioch, California The post Slow-Cooker Banana Bread appeared first on Taste of Home.16 servings

Being a comedian, Colin Jost deals in the art of sharp jibes and roasts, so when Bobby Flay fed him some of his own medicine, it was probably like another day at the office for the "Saturday Night Live" anchor.

"Beat Bobby Flay," the Flay-centric cooking show, has turned illustrious associates into victims. He invites these contestants - supposedly his friends - onto his show, and then demonstrates to them their inferiority in the culinary sphere. Not to worry, the man gets his comeuppance, too. Flay has been beaten by the likes of Alex Guarnaschelli, among others.

The 8 Best Rice Cookers for Every Type of Home Cook

  The 8 Best Rice Cookers for Every Type of Home Cook Our top recommendation is the Hamilton Beach Rice Cooker & Food Steamer.Rice is a healthy, versatile food staple—but cooking rice that's fluffy, tender, and not clumpy can be a challenge. Even the most experienced cook messes up rice—and cleans burned grains from the bottom of a pot—every once in a while. Enter the electric rice cooker. Just add the right amount of water and rice, and the cooker does all the hard work for you. It also gives you another spot on the stovetop to cook whatever else you need to make, and just generally simplifies the cooking process.

We do not know how Flay lures his prey, but we do suspect that the ability to crow about having beaten one of TV's best chefs has something to do with it. And in the case of competitors on "Chopped: Beat Bobby Flay," that crowing would come with a $40,000 prize, per Food Network. Like so many others, Jost was trying to collect this bounty. The prudence of that is questionable, considering that one publicly discussed example of his cooking involved Jost's wife, Scarlet Johansson, describing a Thanksgiving apple pie he made as "zesty" (via YouTube). That sounds like a bit of a roast, too.

Colin Jost Takes It On The Chin

If you are a fan of Colin Jost, you will know that he hitched his wagon to Scarlett Johansson in 2020 (via People). Johansson is anything but small in Tinsel Town. The "Avengers" star, having made it to the top of Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses in 2019, is arguably the ultimate definition of an A-lister. This is likely not lost on her, as Johansson even joked about not needing Jost's paycheck during a "Saturday Night Live" appearance (via YouTube).

When Jost appeared on "Beat Bobby Flay" with Carla Hall, he took a verbal beating from Bobby Flay, who said, "When you say you're married to Scarlett Johansson, it's kind of like so incredible. It's like nobody can actually believe it," per People. Hall inferred that Flay was saying Jost had "married up." As cutting as the statement sounds, it was part of a good-natured exchange. Flay turned the heat up even more when he recalled a Facetime conversation where Johansson spilled the beans about one of Jost's alleged four-day pie-making debacles, reminding him of his "zesty" Thanksgiving creation. Jost gladly took it on the chin.
