I watched a few minutes and turned it off. I'm seeing a segment on pot laced brownies on this one.

The commercial so turned me off that I have zero desire to even attempt watching it. Just the name alone tells me that it is not for serious cooks!

I watched the very first show a couple of months ago. I wanted to stab forks into my eyes afterwards. I sat there, just waiting for the screen to pop-up a "SURPRISE!! YOU'VE JUST BEEN PUNKED BY A COOKING SHOW".

Doubt I could sit through this show. I watched the Cooking Channel for the first time this week and did not like the vibe there. Prefer Food Network shows much more....except Cupcake Wars and that new dessert show.

annie, i don't like cupcake wars at all. and as i have foodtv on for back ground noise, most of the time. i don't like the repeats either. my fave show is anne burell, the rest of just as i described them noise. the cooking channel is even worse.

I never saw anything like this this recipe! I saw the little pots of chocolate with sea salt though! Maybe a web-thing only?

Nadia G.'s jokes can be a bit crass, but I honestly find her different and often funny. She is someone who started on the web by creating a character and then had her character cook. She definitely does not take herself seriously with her heels, kitschy dress, manicured fingers and toes, and hair styles, but her food is fresh, usually seasonal, different, and easy enough for beginners to make.

Her themes are funny. I personally loved the episode where she created the meal to dump someone by. After dressing in black and leopard prints, she made the dishes of her "Splitsville" menu, which all looked great. The pesto-fig salad with goat cheese crosstini plated in a Chinese Take-out box so her new ex can take him with him: Priceless.
