I have to admit that although I had misgivings since its debut was first announced, I find myself with Cooking Channel turned on more than anything else these days. Have been enjoying the retro shows, & the shows that Food Network used to show but ultimately dropped. Have even dvr'd quite a few to go back to as a reminder to look up the recipes on their website. Can't remember the last time I've felt like doing that - lol!

There may be hope for this new network yet so long as they don't overrun with Giada et al. Her & the rest of the Food Network stable I could do without on this new channel.

Oh well. I knew it was too good to be true. Rachel Ray just showed her obnoxiously overly-perky face. Apparently one (if not more) of her shows will be joining those of Giada & Emeril on the new Cooking Channel. All previous hopes of mine are now dashed.

Someone really needs to smack the Food Network execs upside the head. Wasn't this supposed to be a DIFFERENT network?? A network devoted to actual COOKING?? So why the h*ll is Rachel Ray now on in one of her stupid travelogues?? I can catch that garbage on Food Network about 30 times a day - lol!

I give up Food Network. You had me for a short while, but you've lost me now.

lol, it doesn't take much, mimiz, does it?

hey, i have an idea. they should combine soap operas and cooking shows. a fusion of classic tv and modern. the women can do the cooking show, and a hunky guy does the dishes in real time while everyone discusses important issues and laughs. sponsored by dish soap and feminine product companies, of course.

just thinking out loud, again.

Soap operas my friend are classic, never boring, and you will be hard pressed to find a re-run (not that I watch 1) Guys or girls never cook in that crap so do you think we could do a Mimi Breezy or Breezy Mimi (sounds like a cocktail, maybe we should improve)... This forum could be a start, Al my DC'S...
