If you do, have you ever tried making something you saw on there?

I enjoy watching cooking shows, but I can't seem to find any that truly make "easy to make" things. I am cooking challenged. I would like to be able to start making more things, but need it to be a) fast (my husband and I both work) and b) EASY!

Yes...OMG, I watch them all the time. My fav is Rachael Ray 30 minute meals. I've gotten a few of her recipes off the website and I actually had it for lunch and dinner today. They are fast and easy, although some take a lot of ingredients. I also like Sandra Lee, who I've heard has recipes that are very simple and easy with very few ingredients. I watch most of the Food Network shows when I get a chance.

I need fast and with as little ingredients as possible since I'll screw it up otherwise! LOL! Seriously. I am cooking challenged and would like to change it - at least a little bit. I like things that are easy to follow and tend to use stuff you always have in the house. I dislike when you have to do 100 things to achieve a dish or buy 100 things you normally wouldn't buy (that defeats my frugal by cooking at home idea! LOL).

I think I'll check out Rachael Ray..

I love the foodnetwork! I've made several things from Rachel Ray, however, I don't use all her ingredients, lol. I use what I have on hand & it works out just the same. ;o)


I'm also a fan of the original Iron Chef... some of the stuff they make looks gross, but I still like to watch them work. ;o)

You only think "some" of it looks gross?

LOL... ok, so all of it looks gross... but you're right, they have some awesome skills. They did one show using octopus... and I was pregnant at the time & I couldn't watch it, lol... for some reason seeing the legs with the suction cup looking things floating in the water just made me sick! LOL


What.. you don't like fish ice cream??? LMBO!

I love watching cooking shows, esp. Rachel Ray. But, I definitely need the recipe, so I go online and get it before I even attempt to make what she makes!! ;-) I've learned so much from her technique-wise, though!!
