What, no America's Test Kitchen? No Lidia's Kitchen? And here you are on a food related forum...

I don't watch too much TV, although I do have a couple of must-watch shows. Love "Big Bang Theory" since we have a brainiac son - I watch that show and it makes me think of what our home was like when he was in high school and college and his friends would come over. Also watch "Castle" because Kate and Castle have great lines off each other. However, once baseball season starts I pretty much watch the 6:00PM news. Then it's "play ball".

But just like for sleep hours, there is only so much "TV viewing hours pixie dust" that is sprinkled on a home. DH seems to have laid claim to the majority of those two portions of dust, but it's all good.

Love Big Bang Theory, I went to school with those guys, my Dad and brother are a couple of those guys...no I do not resemble Penny, I'm a mix between Bernadette and Amy Farah Fowler.

Eek! No kidding,

I watch both of those. I love it when Lydia has her beautiful grand kids and her lovely mother on.

I watch Americas Test Kitchen, Jaques Pepin, Simply Ming and Rick Bayless.

Christina Cooks is not a fave of mine.

Barbeque U is good also.

I guess I pretty much watch them all when I have the time.

FWIW, you don't come across as "blonde" (noNoNO offense to blondes!) so I wouldn't think of you as Penny.

Our real estate agents back home have been friends with us from when our boys played CYO football back in 4th grade. Their daughter went to NYU and one of her roommates was the actress who plays Bernadette. Never met her, but I do know someone else who played Christine from "The Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway. And here I am, famous for...nuthin'.

I've caught Jaques Pepin a few times but can't watch him when he has Julia Child on. No offense to Julie, she was a tremendous cook and all, but since we get WGBH as a local PBS station I've had Julia overload. Some Saturdays they run her pretty much from noon to 6:00.

Love Ming (my sil met him) and BBQ U. Also, the Rhode Island station shows Chef Staib from Philly's "City Tavern" in a series called "Taste of History" that is excellent for both cooks and history buffs. I'd watch Martha Stewart because she does do a very good job of going over the basics in her Martha's Cooking School that is playing right now, but her manner of speaking can put me right to sleep. Don't have that problem with ABC's "The Chew" though. It's more a cooking-light thing but I have made more than one of Michael Symon's dishes with great reviews from DH. As long as hubby's happy we're all happy.

OK, I guess I do watch more TV than I thought once I list everything. But it's mostly cooking stuff.

Love eating...love history. I don't get that program here but it sounds interesting.

http://www.pbs.org/food/shows/a-taste-of-history/

Episodes are available on you-tube so I'll check them out there.



Thanks! :)

The very hungry Frenchman is a beautifully gentle prog, Raymond Blanc is beyond comparison.
