My Drunk Kitchen
My Drunk Kitchen traces its beginning to March 2011, when Hart was at her sister's home, chatting with a friend over webcam. Hart used her Macintosh computer to record herself drinking wine while attempting to make a grilled cheese sandwich without any cheese. Hart uploaded the video to YouTube as My Drunk Kitchen. Within a few days the video had accumulated 100,000 hits. Viewers began asking for another "episode" of the video, and Hart complied with more recordings. To establish the initial upload as the first episode of a series, she renamed it "Butter Yo Shit." By July 2011, My Drunk Kitchen had gathered 800,000 hits, earning Hart a YouTube partnership.
Hart has hosted several celebrity guests on My Drunk Kitchen, including British chef Jamie Oliver actress Mary-Louise Parker, video blogger Tyler Oakley, and author John Green, who subsequently wrote the foreword to Hart's cookbook. Comedian Sarah Silverman was also featured in the show in December 2014 in an episode which demonstrated the therapeutic and medicinal use of cannabis.
