I've gotten into the habit of recording what I want to watch, and watching it later -- which often means that I'm watching cooking shows in the late evening. Which, as infomercial people know, is when you're most vulnerable to suggestion.
Which then leads to me deciding that I absolutely NEED to make a certain dish. Right now, after watching an old episode of Baking with Julia, I am convinced the I need to make bagels tomorrow.
Do you ever watch a food show and decide that you HAVE TO make the dish as soon as possible, even if it doesn't fit your schedule or your menu plans?
