My recent thoughts on Food Network

I don't watch Food Network anymore. Wish I did, wish I Tivo'ed more shows to watch in my leisure (ha!) time, wish I found more ideas for recipes from there, but alas, it's kinda lost some of its shimmer lately.

Now when I was on maternity leave, I had the station on for about 8 hours a day and I had some of the most blissful naps through Bobby Flay in the morning. I'd watch Molto Maria around lunchtime, and Ina would come on 4:30 pm, and I would chop in the kitchen with my son in his swing listening to her go on about French food I'll never serve but always enjoyed hearing about. And don't get me started about how much I watched Rachel Ray while I was in college.

Here is Anthony Bourdain's view on some of the Food Network chefs, and I agree with most of his opinions. (oh Sandra Lee put the dry onion soup mix away!) I had a good laugh this afternoon. Thought you might, too!


  1. I used to be hooked on FN but now I get my foodie fix on the Travel Channel. I love watching with DH and getting excited about visiting different places. I clicked over to your blog via your link on Tip Junkie. Great blog you have here!

  2. It sounds like you would love - they poke fun at the food network hosts and shows. Anthony Bourdain was right on!
