The pandemic has made a significant impact on our lives. One of those is the kitchen. The popularity of home cooking is on the rise in America. People are looking for ways to help them.
One YouTube cooking channel is called Welcome to Nealville. So, where’s Nealville? It’s Jaywanna Neal with her two sons in the kitchen that steals the show.
Jaywanna shared the following video: “I have two cooks with my,” Jaywanna explained. “We have Maliki. We have Christopher.”
Jaywanna launched her YouTube channel for cooking last year. It’s full of all the good stuff.
She said, “We have lasagna and spaghetti, pies and cakes.” “My banana pudding is the most watched channel item.”
Jaywanna’s rule reigns supreme.
“It’s your home!” You can do what you like! She laughed.
Jonathan, a husband and father, composes the music. Jaywanna and Jaywanna manage the content. The team works together to bring the dining table back.
Jaywanna explained that you learn the most about your family by being around the table. “Food helps you get along.”
Jaywanna is not the only one feeling this way. Many are becoming less dependent on frozen pizza from the microwave and more interested in cooking.
According to The NPD Group market research firm, cookbook sales have increased by 42% compared to last. In addition, the number of bakeware sales has increased 18% since pre-pandemic 2019. NPD’s subscription service video track service estimates that last year’s increase in viewership for “The Great British Baking Show”, on Netflix, was 10%. Trends that began in the pandemic continue growing.
Jaywanna stated that the pandemic struck, and everyone was at home. Jaywanna stated, “If people are unable to go out or restaurants close early, and they have a family member, they want food!”
Jaywanna says the pandemic, which has ignited a new interest for cooking, has helped her gain more followers for her cooking channel.
“They think their mom’s YouTube-famous!” She laughed at her sons.
Jaywanna is grateful for the national shift towards home cooking and more family time. She adopted Maliki and Christopher from Youth Villages, and became their mother after the pandemic.
