One of my guilty pleasures: the Food Network!

I feel no remorse, but one of my guilty pleasures is cooking and cooking shows. Chopped, Guy’s Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen are some of my favorites.


Why? Maybe because when I was a kid I loved game shows. I still do, but now I like it better when cooking is involved rather than trivia.

It’s nice to focus on something that is not science fiction or fantasy.

I get ideas for meals. Though on most days, I only cook for two people, I dread the words that every home cook dreads: what’s for dinner?  Of all my chores, meal planning, cooking and keeping the kitchen clean takes the most time. I love to cook, I hate not knowing what to cook. I also tend to learn cooking techniques: one of the best hints I got was from Alton Brown.”If you need to add liquid, don’t add water that just waters it down, add broth or cream or …”

However, the truth is I watch them because I like watching people freak out.


One response to this post.

  1. My husband is likewise obsessed with Cutthroat Kitchen, and I am highly entertained when I catch it. He’s also been watching episodes of Good Eats on Netflix with our toddler son – it’s their thing to do when my son needs his nails trimmed.
