A spoon full of sugar does not always help the medicine go down. . .

We have drool rugs around the TV for Triple D.

I look at it like, window shopping. I love wandering in stores, catalogs, online and just looking. That's also what I do when I watch food shows I like.

I love Japanese iron chef! But Julia Child and Bitchin Kitchen make me want to cook... Diners Driveins and Dives and Emerils Originals makes me want to eat. and I love good eats but I'm not sure what it does to me lol! Also there's something about sweet genius that keeps me glued but I'm not a huge fan of chopped, go figure. :)

Cook's Country and Ina Garten get me into the kitchen to try new methods of preparing old favorites. I like the tips and techniques that I learn more than any big ta-dah type recipes.

I really like Guy Fieri! I love DDD and his other cooking show "Guy's Big Bite." I remember that he was the winner on the first "Next Food Network Star" back in 2006. Man, he proved he is a star! His personality really adds a lot to DDD. He always makes me laugh.

Another show I like is Chopped. Sometimes, I am in a similar situation when it comes to making dinner, and I only have certain ingredients on hand.

I miss Emeril Live. One episode that sticks out in my mind is when Julia Child made an appearance. Doc Gibbs and his band were great! I think there is a show close to it on the Hallmark Channel? I haven't been able to catch it yet.

Jaques Pepin and Julia Child also have a syndicated show, either on a PBS station or The Cooking Channel. They make some pretty mouth-watering dishes!

Some others are Mario Batali, Sara Moulton and the show "America's Test Kitchen."

For amusement, I like to watch "Two Fat Ladies."


coming back to add... I remember being a kid and watching "Yan Can Cook" with my mother. My grandma always watched Justin Wilson. I've been watching cooking shows for almost my whole life!

Martin Yan, and MIng Tsai are still a couple of my favorites.

Anyone remember the lil old Italian Chef, Pasquale(can't remember his past name), but would do great, country style Italian peasant food, and break out into Operatic segments?
