I’m a Food Network junkie, I could watch it all day long –Bobby Flay (our favorite), The Neelys, Guy Fieri, The Barefoot Contessa, Alton Brown, Paula Deen, Nigella, Giada, and the list goes on. Low and behold, last month they launched another foodie network, The Cooking Channel, woohoo, some competition! So now when I’m waking up and sipping my coffee early in the morning and not in the mood for Emeril’s humor, I have a choice!
They have kept many of our favorites, brought back the classics –Julia Child and Graham Kerr,
and launched a wide variety of new shows – Chinese Food Made Easy, Everyday Exotic, French Food at Home, The Thirsty Traveler, Indian Food Made Easy and a host of others.
And of course, there are plenty of great recipes online: Chicken Chow Mein, Grilled Vegetable Antipasti; Tomato Tortilla Soup; Fusilli with Shrimp, Orange and Arugula; Potato and Pea Samosas and a gazillion more.
Check ‘em out on T.V. or the web, it’s free, it doesn’t collect dust on your bookshelf, and it’s a way to enjoy food without the calories!
