The Food Network

Anyone a Food Network fan? I love watching Barefoot Contessa and Paula Deen even though some of the stuff they make is a little over my head. They make it look so easy though!!

I am in love wth Rachel Ray. Paula Dean must be living on borrowed time with all the butter she bakes with.
I do not have cable at this moment. I only watch Food Network at girl friends house and while I was in the hospital and rehab for my busted knee cap. Will have to go back for additional surgery since the tendon did not connect.
Just bought a coop where I will have cable plus internet via cable.

I watch it quite often, I look at the tv schedule to see if anything sparks my interest. I get more ideas and tips than using their actual recipe. I do enjoy Paula's baking recipes.

Yeah, I check to see if anything they are making looks good to me. I really like some of Barefoot Contessa's recipes; I just made her cream of wild mushroom soup and it was phenomenal. Her baking recipes are also really good. I saw that she started making gift baskets for 1800flowers.com... her dessert one looks yummy. I may send a couple of those to my relatives and pretend I was the one slaving away in the kitchen, haha.

I saw that epi. That was one of those molecular gastronmy demonstrations using chemicals. Try googling make "carrot caviar" and "molecular gastronomy"

I'd have to say that Food Network is my favorite channel to watch. Not only because I enjoy cooking but also because of all the great tips I get. I like Rachel Ray, Paula Dean, (though not too much. I can only take her "y'all" so many times.) Giada DeLaurentis, and all the little shows like Dinners, Drive Ins and Dives. I manage to learn something new every time.

There are a few shows on the Food Network that I enjoy, but I think my favorite is Good Eats--maybe it's just my inner scientist, but I like how Alton Brown explains more than just how to cook things. A lot of the recipes from Food Network seem to be over my head and my budget, but it can be fun to watch and get ideas.

Has anyone seen the show with Amy, winner of the Next Food Network Star?

And is Paula Dean boozing it up, or just acting like it??????

Big Good Eats fan, enjoy Iron Chef, would love to host Drive Ins, Diners & Dives!!

I've had that same thought but I get the impression that sometimes he struggles to find something good to say about a dish.

He probably has to "kiss a lot of frogs" before he finds "Sleeping Beauty"
