    Thanks Buckles for coming onto my show; perhaps we can have you back on it someday. It was fun. Like I had said in my video, the dish tasted pretty good; it was kinda spicy… but I bet if he had kept the seeds in the jalapeno, it would’ve been even more spicy!

    Buckler’s seems pretty good with the knife. And the food does look yummy as well. How does one improve slice and dice skill?
