Who else here loves the Food Network? Even for someone who does not even cook, I love tuning in. Ace of Cakes always amazes me. How do they drive those cakes around without them tumbling over? It would give panic attacks. Paula’s Home Cooking comforts me immeadiately, with her traditional recipes containing 5 sticks of butter each and that sweet southern accent.
But my favorite show of all is Everyday Italian. I really enjoy Giada’s recipe and I just think she’s the cutest little cook. She was born in Rome and grew up in the kithcen. She has an active family, I remember one episode where her husband and friends had returned from a miles-long bike ride just in time for a 4 course meal Giada had been teaching us how to prepare. Though I don’t attempt, I just watch in awe. She also once praised the Ciao Bella brand! I mean what a smart gal.
Anyway, I signed on to Facebook this evening and came across a temptation I could not resist. Any of you who say you don’t take those Facebook quizzes.. I just don’t believe you. They are so fun (though no one ever “publishes” it). I took one that posed the question “Which Food Network Host Are You?” I hoped for Giada.. but I did get the wonderfully down-to-earth Rachael Ray. As it tells me, I got this because I’m a “no-frills” cook. Yea, “no-frills” is right. I’m so “no-frills” I usually let someone else cook for me then pay them to let me eat it. Well, if you’re a Food Network fan find the Facebook quiz and find out who you are! Then go to the Ciao Bella Facebook page and find out where Elle and I will be that day to come get a sample and talk about it with me!
