I was psyched to receive tickets to the taping of a new Paul Deen show which was filmed in New York City this past Saturday and Sunday. What they didn't tell you up front was that this show was going to be a talk show, and not a show devoted to food, cooking etc. We had a great time. Did anyone else win tickets to this show called MomLogic?
I've been assigned the task of writing a cookbook for a non profit organization, and was wondering if there are certain Celebrity Chefs/Restauranteurs who lend their name for worthy causes. Do you know of any who are currently charity friendly? This cookbook will be used as a major fundraising vehicle for our association, and in addition to membership participation, we are hoping to have recipes graciously submitted by culinary legends such as Ina Garten, Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart, Mario Batalli, Thomas Kelleher, etc. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated
Hey guys........is anyone going to check out "The Great American Pie Off" at the Bowery Electric on Saturday, July 26th? Sounds like it might be pretty interesting. The information is available here: http://newyorktheatreexperiment.org/NYTE/Whats_New.html
They said goodbye to Kelsey last night leaving Adam, Aaron and Lisa for the title of Next Food Network Star. I'm starting to believe that it will come down to Lisa and Aaron in the end, with Aaron the eventual winner. However that is my "practical" approach, and wouldn't at all be surprised it they chose the in house comedian who is "using up their dime".........Adam. What do you think?
I am a chocoholic and eat chocolate every day. Often times I reach for a few bite size morsels after reviewing a really great chocolate recipe, but have also noticed that I need that "fix" after encountering news that sometimes is stressful or down right BAD. What about you? When do you hit the chocolate?
I was eagerly awaiting this much hyped new show, and to say I was sadly disappointed, is an understatement. Watching this show was PAINFUL! She grunts, groans and tries to highlight statements by jumping into a Frankenstein-esque voice. With her hands flailing about like a "kite festival gone bad", she cooks the "crap" out of her dish until it reaches a state of "cruddom". And while preparing the asparagus, she suddenly lunges into a "southern drawl" referring the the olive oil as "earl". I'm sorry, but either she is extremely bipolar and off her medication, or NEEDS it badly. I can understand "newbie" nervousness, but this was one of the worst half hours of tv I've ever watched.
I can't help but get the impression that the Food Network really doesn't give a damn what "we" the people of Food Nation have to say about their programming. What's your opinion?
I've always loved grilled sausage and steak on the grill. Others prefer the classic hotdog and blackened chicken. What's your preference?
Good God your majesty, GET A GRIP! Martha has done her time and seriously shouldn't pose any threat to the common good wielding pot holders or hot scones. I say she should be allowed to enter. What's your take?
I LOVE both and can only choose one or the other based on location, time of day and if toppings and toasting are involved. What's your preference?
Even though pepper comes in several different varieties and offers numerous health benefits, I'd choose salt for it's unique abilities to flavor, preserve and excite the foods we eat.
In my icebox you'll always find sour cream, unsalted butter, cream cheese, plain yogurt and fresh cheese. What's always "LIVING" in your fridge?
I recently made a plain roasted chicken with thyme, rosemary and lemon as internal flavoring components. Then I slathered it with DUCK FAT... "Orgasmic"... What's your FANTASY RECIPE for this decadent treat?
Strawberries have officially invaded the shopping universe. I made a strawberry clafouti for something different. What's your favorite dish?
I've heard several old cliches, some NOT so nice. Personally, I'd say that McCain would be "salt", and Obama would be "pepper". What's your take?
Most chocolate lovers I know, munch on chocolate everyday. I have my artisan favorites, but for everyday snacking I eat Trader Joes. What's your favorite?
Hey guys...........Boscoe The Cookie Doctor here, and I'm curious what your Favorite All Time Go-To cookie is. Mine is chocolate chip, what's yours?
Just curious that's all. I too, like hundreds of others, enter my comments with the hope that ONE day I'll win one of the featured "Cook The Book" contests. I never see a weekly posting of the winners. Am I missing something? Just thought it would be great to see who wins, so that I could congratulate them as well as visit their page.
Cheddar and chile bread rounds off a week of Nancy Baggett's Kneadlessly Simple bread recipes. It's a wonderfully savory, Tex-Mex-inspired bread, shot through with morsels of cheese and chile. The best part? The fuss-free, easily mixed ingredients have earned the...
