I caught her show today, thought that she did very well for new comer. I am looking forward to watching next few shows. I think Food Network has found another winer if they don't screw her up. Guy seems to be the only one that has made it big, and that is because he is doing a travel log show. Big Daddy seems to fade in and out, so we shall see what happens to her.

Well, since I'm not in the minds of Food TV I can't say that I can watch her and see ONLY what Food TV wants her to be.

Can't we give her a break here? She is new to being in front of a camera...I couldn't do it, nor could most of us, right out of the gate.

Even if you prefer to watch Jacques Pepin and Julia reruns, if you decide to cook any of their food you will still need to buy a few things/spices

Every time I watch a cooking program my main focus is to learn something new. Those programs I don't care for I simply don't watch.

I like the show in itself but the $10 concept is very misleading.
One already has to have all the spices/oils and apparently itís assumed that most of the items were on sale.
But gimmick aside, her recipes are really good.
I also loved her ďtipĒ for keeping bacon in the freezer, so much easier to slice and lasts longer. Iím not very good in the kitchen, so didnít know one could do that.

I find it rather nice to have someone who is more like a neighbor than an actress all glamed up showing what she prepares for her family rather than a recipe you have to chase down the fancy ingredients for. While a fancy meal is a wonderful treat for loved ones or a special time, everyday foods really are more my way to go during the week. Her tip about the bacon really brought home my mom to me..I remember how she loved to give us the best and would wait for sales and then buy butter and bacon and store them in the freezer...Ahhh mom you were so loving and good.
