I really like her show too, but I agree with Tom, shes not like a lot of other TV hosts.

I was reluctant about the spaghetti squash, but it was pretty good?

I like Ellie and I've tried a few of her recipes - I watch her on FN if I catch the show.

Oops. I typed in Small Changes Big Results on my post as though it were something other than what it is...her book.

I really appreciate the insight and calorie-counted recipes in that book. I tried the meatloaf (turkeyloaf) with an open mind and I liked it well enough. If you go into it with the pre-set mindset that it is turkeyloaf, then yeah, you're not disappointed. The veggies gave it a good flavor too.

I watch her show but it's not one of my absolute favourites persay. She can get on my nerves sometimes. dunno why.
does any one watch "Just one bite"? (do you get that in the US??) any way, Ellie remids me of Theresa Albert, who is the host of JOB.

however...for my birthday i made her raspberry cheesecake, and it was pretty darn good! Recipes : Ricotta Cheesecake with Fresh Raspberries : Food Network
It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair.

It was her show that made me realize you don't have to eat much salt before you've gone way over your daily allowance of sodium. Something like one teaspoon of salt is all you should consume in a day. I just never paid attention to that before.

I've made a few of her recipes, some of which I will make again.

What I do like about her is that she doe snot substitute the real thing for artificial ingredients. But she just cuts down on the real flavor and you can keep the flavor. That is my angle as well. Because of her I quit buying imitation vanilla (ducks from things people will throw at her) and moved to the real thing. Even an old duck like myself can learn a thing or two.

I would rather pay a bit more (when I can) and have better flavor.
I cook what I like because I like what I cook!
