Lorraine on the holiday baking championship never has anything nice to say about anyone's food!!! I watch this show all the time and she is a horrible judge!!!!
I wish that the Food network would show different shows rather than run one show for hours and hours. It also seems that when the don't have anything to air the run Dinner, Driveins and Dives endlessly. I hate that show. On the weekends when I can watch shows to teach me to be a better cook it seems that the worst shows are shown and endless competitions. I wish that a creative team could come up with new shows and news cooks. The Food network seems to have passed it's prime, but i really hope not.
I love watching the Food Network. It's my favorite. I also love watching Bobby Flay. And I love watching BEAT BOBBY FLAY. I realize it's all done in good fun but Sunny Sonny Anderson is obnoxious and a bully. The night she dropped a pepper mill in his food I would have banished her no matter how much they are urged to harass him. Phony southern accent. Disgusting. And Katie Lee acts like her comments to him belong in the bedroom. I'm no prude but these 2 need to go. And Mark Murphy! ARROGANT.
T, if you watch the show as much as you clzim, you would see that it is not uncommon for judges to hide Bobby's ingredients, cookware, plates, etc. If you think Sunny Anderson is the only culprit, you are sadly mistaken. I'm not fond of the practice, but most, if not all, if the judges do it. And, he still wins.
I just turned off your Thanksgiving challenge show when your judges eliminated the third of three caucasian chefs. That means every contestant eliminated has been a part of this demographic. I have no argument with keeping the black male chef because I thought he has been the best chef throughout the competition. Keeping the black woman contestant shouts of political correctness and bias judging. Ms. Guarnicelli is a joke. She's a bulldozer, opinionated, and overtly favors female contenders on every show she judges. I find it laughable that she sits in judgment of others chefs when she, as a contestant to become an Iron Chef, blubbered her way through round after round. Nice job by the producers and politically correct leaders at The Food Network. Frankly I don't think I will watch your network much anymore.
We've dealt with al!.if these clAims of rzcism.I'm judgin
We have dealt with all of these unfounded claims of Racism in judging ad nauseum. Get a life people. The only racists involved with Food Network are you jerkwads who trunk stir up trouble by throwing out unsupported accusations. You need to take your hate and boof it.
Regarding Alex Guarneicelli, she has more talent, knowledge and experience than you could ever dream of having. She's earned her position and deserves it.I
As for your threat to discontinue watching Food Network, I gladly encourage you to butch up and follow through with your threat. This forum will be much better off when haters like you stay away.
I love watching the Kitchen and what they do. Please make Sunny Anderson quit smacking her food and acting like a pig. She adds no class whatsoever to the show. She is so loud. Sometimes I change the channel just so I don't have to see her.
Wanda, I really don't understand the accusations against Sunny- anytime I watch the Kitchen I honestly don't see her acting any different than anyone else on the show. They ALL talk while chewing, they ALL smack their lips from time to time, and while she may speak a little louder than others at times but I find that enduring.
I also respect Sunny for serving her country for 5 years in the military.
Wanda, at least you have the good sense to change the channel like I do when Giada and her breasts show up on one show or another. I'll take Sunny over Giada anyday!
Thank you. She is disgusting.
Please stop putting tattooed people on your showes.
Michael, you're asking a lot here and your request makes about as much sense as asking that bald people should be banned.
According to my findings, of Americans aged 18-29, 36% have at least one tatoo. And, of those in the range of 26-40 years old the number which sport tatoos is even higher at 40%. Finally, the trend is increasing despite the fact that facial, neck, hand and other ratios are frowned upon if the person cares to work in a professional or public position.
I don't think you're going to gain a lot of traction in your request.
Tired and disgusted to constantly seeing Giada breasts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Others put some type of cloth/fabric to a plunging neckline.. I stopped watching her for awhile because of this, but I see she continues to disappoint .
Hey Lynne, In the past you have mentioned grandchildren,obviously cooking and recipes you hope to get around to at sometime. Here's an idea which might help you out on more than one level.
For family, especially the grandkids who ,at some point in their future will say "I wish I had paid attention when Grandma Lynne showed me how to make her special Meatlosf! It was the best and now I'll never be able to have it again!" Or, I wish I had written down the recipe for Grandma Lynne's Award Winning Cocolate Cake she made for my 18th Birthday. You know it will happen because I know you've experienced it too.
So, maybe for Christmas, write down your and their favorite recipes and make plenty of copies. Then buy some of those magnetic photo albums and fill them with recipes so they will always have them. You can get as elaborate as you wish like separating them into chapters like a store bought cookbook. Maybe you could include stories about how the recipes got to you.. Maybe some have been in your family for generations. That would be cool to know. And, you could keep the project going for years to come by sending new completed pages as you add new favorite recipes to your collection.
Somehow, I think this would be a big hit with your family and especially your grandkids. I certainly wish I had some of my Grandmother's recipes. Now, they are only memories.
Cost? Mimimal. Value? Priceless!
That's a great idea George! I just got done with a crocheted blanket for one grandson, am working on new Christmas wreaths and have been collecting recipe books for the new daughter in law and the older grandchildren out on their own- adding personalized recipes would be the crowning touch..... thanks for that great idea! I have family recipes that I grew up with that my mom put together before she passed- and I could copy those down from their greatgrandmother! Oh, I'm excited now!
LHM, I sure hope Anon doesn't criticize me for dominating the forum.like it is my personal blog, but I found another great Christmas Gift for neighnors, friends and maybe some you might have forgotten. It's simole, easy, inexpensive and a very nice thing to show that you're thinking of others.
Homemade Marshmallows and Homemade Instant Hot Cocoa Kits. Homemade Marshmallows are easy to make, inexpensive and unbelievably tasty. Paired with Homemade Instant Hot Cocoa Mix in decorative jars or packaging makes a very nice gift that shows you care. You can Google Homemade Marshmallows and Homemade Instant Hot Cocoa.Mix and you'll find many recipes to choose from as well as packaging ideas. Just make plenty of Marshmallows, because you'll end up "sampling" more than your share.
Here we go again! Discovery has just announced yet another Game Show Series on Food Network. "Famiy Food Showdown", hosted by Valerie Bertinelli. It pits families against each other in a cooking challenge for a $10k prize. 13 episode 1st season to air next year. Blah, blah, blah! This is just another example that Food Network does NOT know it's audience. Sure, Bertinelli is warm and likeable, but it's just more of the same recycled programming which is taking this network down. They gave good shows like Cajun Aces, Baked and Andrew Z's shows 6 episode abbreviated seasons with no announced future. If we want to watch mindless gameshows, there is already an entire network dedicated to that type of programming. It's called The Game Show Network. Another example of poor decision making on the part of Food Network and it's owners.
And, for those interested in contacting Food Network, here is the name of one of the decision makers responsible for the poor programming on Food Network. I wish I could find a direct address, phone number or email address, but I'll post it if/when I find it. Courtney White, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Programming of Food Network and HGTV.
Can't help but notice that this site seems to be your personal blog. I personally found that others had good comments. Perhaps room can be saved to allow their opinions as well.
Dear Anon. This forum is not a zero sum game. If you have something of interest to post, then why not do it as opposed to criticizing those that do have something to say. I apologize for wasting so.much of your valuable time in this forum. I have never shared the fact that unfortunately I have more time on my hands than.I have cared too share. I have endured 4 surgeries in the last 7 months with at least 3 remaining. For in over a year now, I have left my apartment for only Dr Appointments( 50+ this year alone) and Medical Procedures. For all intents and purposes, my life is confined to a path between my living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. I'm short, I don't have a lot going on for me at this time. So, maybe I do find some amount of pleasure in watching TV and spending, what YOU may believe is an inordinate amount on the computer and in this forum. But, for the time being, I don't have much else. So, if that seems to work you, so be it. Try walking a few feet with MY walker! Now, you have a real nice day and I'll make the best of mine, because ?I can assure you, I don't have many optons.
Sorry to hear this George- good luck with your remaining medical things.
Chin up and all that! I enjoy your posts!
Well Anonymous, if you haven't noticed- no one from Food Network ever answers anything on this site, nor do I think anyone from FN even reads this site.
That being said, Food Network should be happy that George has the intelligence and foresight to help direct others to an appropriate name or web address to help them with their problems.
Also, George has offered great recipes and ideas for others to check out, when FN doesn't have the time to personalize anything to anyone.
No one is stopping anyone from posting, but I like George and his info and insights.
George, I agree with you 1000 percent !! What happened to the brilliant Canadian chef that resigned her executive position to pursue a career in food? She was amazing? Where are the quality cooking shows? This network will fail so long as poor decisions continue.
I bought a set of service for 8 silverware at kohl's and its a piece of crap--loved the design but its rusting all pieces I shopped for a very long time to find a great patern that I like--very disappointed will not buy your product again and will tell anyone who asks not to buy.
Anony- take them back to Kohl's, and try getting your money back, and next time- avoid headache and heartache- do some research before you spend your money on crap (even if it a great pattern).
Just another one of my personal ideas for those who are tired of reruns, over-played Holiday Shows ( like a solid month of Halloween), Reality Contest Shows and SO many Cake and Cupcake Contests (( Very nice but I'm not likely to EVER feel the need to make a 2 ton, 10 layer monstrosity which is half Rice KrispiebTreats, so.I don't require multiple lessons.). To tell you the truth, I can't remember the last time I watched a Food Network show.
But, that being said, I receive daily emails, and I mean they come religiously, every day!, from Food Network. As is my answer for nearly everything, Google it. "Food Network Newsletter". It will direct you to a "sign up" from where you can choose the mailings you wish to receive. I think I am only signed up for "Recipe of the Day" and "Holidays, but there are several options.
With "Recipe of thev Day" not only do you get the featured recipe, but it's only a portion of a sometimes very lengthy presentation of related recipes. You liked the Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe? Well. there can be every version imaginable in the slideshow, complete with pictures, recipes and ratings.
Although this can become cumbersome due to SO.MANY ideas, you won't have bad dreams of Giada's Breasts flopping around over your food. And, it sure beats watching Food Network Shows you really don't care to wstch. Let me know if any of you subscribed and what you think. Lynne, I'd bet your "I'm going to make this sometime" Recipe Box will be overflowing in no time.
Amen George!! Couldn't possibly agree more. Years ago they some very interesting and entertaining shows. Like you I am home bound. I read I watch TV. Getting fed up with some of the stars as well. If they never showed Giada Delaurentis again that would be a good start to making the network likable again. Sorry if you are a fan of hers but She comes off as phony and I am curious why every other female on the network dresses with class and she feels the need to expose cleavage. This is a cooking channel not a peep show.
