    I think she is really a great chef but the butter she uses my goodness would make my heart pitty pat? Who is your favorite cook on tv? do you ever try their recipes? Buy their cookbooks?

    I don't like here -- something about her soft voice irritates me!!! I like Guy Fieri.......he's so much fun!!!! And I generally like his recipes.

    Mr. Food---down to earth, easy stuff, 5 minute recipes. And yes, I've tried several of them. He's on the last few minutes of our noon news.
    I don't watch those 1/2 hour shows.

    I like a lot of the cooking shows here, but too many of them cook in a way that I would put on 100 pounds in a week.

    I really like the Blaine's Low Carb Kitchen Blaine Jelus), but now it's on a channel that I don't get. :(

    I DO NOT like Paula Deen. I can't stand how she constantly says "Ya"ll". Granted I do know shes from Georgia and some of the people talk that way, but it irratates me to no end. I totally refuse to watch her anymore. And she always CRAMS way to much food in her mouth at one time, thats nasty and I always wait for her to choke. But I am sure that if she did, it would be edited out.
    Now for the show Down Home with the Nealy's....OH PLEASE...get a motel room. I can't stand the way the talk on that show, to me its too "sexually oriented" but then again maybe its just me.
    Same with Guy Fieri (spelling im sure is wrong). He crams TOO MUCH in his mouth also, but I come to expect that from men. But have you noticed how much JEWELRY he is now wearing....and its not anything small its all HUGE, look at the watch, OMG that watch face is as big as my hand is, and the gold chain he wears, that must weigh ten pounds. I call him "Wanna Be Mr.T" lol. If he would do away with some of that Jewelry, and wouldn't cram so much in his mouth he wouldn't be bad. I do watch him sometimes because I do like to see what kinds of foods are favorites all over the country on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
    Now Rachel Ray, she drives me BONKERS. I like her recipes and I even have one of her cookbooks....BUT can you imagine how much MORE cooking she could get done if she didn't "talk with her hands". LOL But I watch her sometimes still.
    Now for Ann Berreli (Secrets of a Restuarant Chef) am I the only one that has noticed that she is trying REALLY REALLY hard to act like Rachel Ray? I mean Rachel Ray coined EVOO and a few others, but This woman is now trying to coin some too...one I can think of right off is BTB=bring to boil....Oh well.
    Hell's Kitchen....OH that show makes me want to REACH IN my TV and grab Chef Ramsey by the throat and squeeze it. He is so very disrespectful to those chefs it isnt even funny, and yes I do know that when they signed up for that show that they probably had to sign a waiver that they can't sue or something and allowing them to be treated that way. What a shame. And now they are doing a NEW REALITY show...what a surprise LOLOL..thats all thats on TV anymore. Called i think it is "Conviction Kitchen" or something like that. Its some chef and his wife hires convicts to work in his kitchen...Well THAT SHOW WILL NOT be watched on my Tv. For one, that man is trying to act like Chef Ramsey from Hell's Kitchen which is HORRIBLE and just the way that he talks to those people. Granted they have done wrong and I am sure they did their time for what they did, but they still DO NOT deserve to be treated that way. But then, thats my opinion.
