If you can stand the heat - get in the kitchen and start cooking. Food videos are some of the most viewed videos on social media platforms. From food hacks to Mukbang - people are clicking on and watching food-related content.

Proof of that is former Flint resident Ahmad Alzahabi. This viral cooking sensation has 4.8 million followers on his TikTok page - The Golden Balance. I was not one for cooking at home (until the pandemic) and until watching Ahmad. This guy creates some bomb dishes, and if I can make them, anyone can.

The Golden Balance TikTok page is full of Ahmad's original dishes like his Jalapeño Chicken Quesadillas, and some fun recreations like the super popular Popeyes Chicken Sandwich. You can see both of those videos below.

As you can see, Ahmad Alzahabi is full of personality. He has what is often referred to as the 'It' factor. You know as well as I do that there is plenty of room on social media platforms to share your talent and passion too. If you have thought about creating your own cooking segments on TikTok - do it. I hope Ahmad inspires you.

I have included a few more videos from The Golden Balance below. Way to go Ahmad and thank you for sharing yourself and your awesome dishes with the world. Who knows, we could see Ahmad on the Food Network? That being said, I am guessing more people view TikTok than the Food Network channel. As a matter of fact, throw your TV out - everything worth watching is now on TikTok. As of now, this former Michigander is living in Florida. Be sure to check out Ahmad's website, The Golden Balance here for additional recipes, updates, and more.

Keep your eyes peeled for my 'Cooking With Tequila' TikTok coming soon. That is actually not a bad idea. To be continued.
