Okay...how many of you love to watch the food network? Can you believe they have an entire channel devoted completely to food? I must confess I used to watch it a lot more than I do now...simply because I just don't have time, but I occasionally sit down to catch a show here and there to get some fresh new ideas for my culinary adventures! Of course there are some shows on there that I enjoy more than others and I do have my favorites. I think my all time fave is Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa. I have several of her cookbooks and to be honest everything I have made from her recipes has been TDF! Plus, I just love her calm approach and her attention to details. I also love watching Giada, but to be honest I have never actually tried any of her recipes. But there are some shows which drive me nuts...I wont name names, but...seriously??? Some of the crazy concoctions and hyped-up hosts are a bit too much for my taste.
The funny thing is now my kids love watching it!!! All 4 of them! It's so funny to see them all mesmerized by cooking shows. But the good thing is, it's not some stupid show they might otherwise be watching on some other channel and they are learning all kinds of helpful hints and ideas and it really makes them more adventuresome with their food choices. I mean come on!...how many kids do you know that prefer Pesto over chicken nuggets???? Mine do!
So whats your favorite show on The Food Network?
