Oh!  I love Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! One of my favorites! Why do I watch all the ones with junk food when I’m running such a healthy kitchen? Maybe I’m living vicariously. ๐Ÿ˜›

Paula Deen, y’all. I saw an interview prep of her and she was rude and not at all like what she seems on her show. So on her show she just seems so FAKE and over the top sugary sweet! And all her food is a heart attack waiting to happen. I also don’t really like Giada because she seems like a biotch whenever she judges anyone on the Next Food Network star. Along with Alex on the Chopping Block. Yuck.

ps, it’s not the popular opinion here, but I heart Bobby.

Ok Bobby Flay is the coolest guy ever.  His restaurants are amazing and he actually does still work in them.  We saw him at Mesa last year.  

I love Paula Deen herself but I never watch her show.  Her food is so unhealthy that I would never eat it.  All that butter!

paula deen – she’s like a boozy old grandma (plus), but she seems to only cook butter and sugar (minus) and babbles with that accent (double minus). 

Oh, and Nigella Lawson (i think?) was recently a guest judge on Top Chef…. snotty!  ๐Ÿ™ I like Tobey as a guest judge.

I totally had a dream about Bobby Flay one night…where I was his girlfriend. Yep, it was WEEEIIIIIRD and I have no idea why, except that I watch Food Network before bed to put me to sleep.

But yeah, generally speaking food network is kind of annoying. Cheesy. But, i still watch b/c of the food, lol. I Find Paula Deen annoying with her “ya’all…Ya’all…ya’all” the whole time.

Paula Deen, uuuuugh.  I cannot STAND her voice.  It just drives me crazy.  I can’t even comment on her food because I never make it through more than 45 seconds of her.

And Sandra Lee for sure.  That lady is just absurd.

Nigella Lawson was a guest on Top Chef. I watched it yesterday and yeah.., she was uber snotty. But I think the whole concept of having the chefs bring them (Padma and Nigella) breakfast in bed for the Quick Fire was snotty!

@melissabegins: I always want to eat what Giada is making too, yum.  Same with Barefoot Contessa…. ugh now I’m hungry and Subway just isn’t going to cut it.

I can’t stand Sandra Lee or Guy Fieri.  Honsetly, who wears their sunglasses like that anyway- turn them around or take them off you dork! 

I like Bobby Flay, he makes interesting stuff- his restaurant in Vegas is really tasty!

I don’t know who a lot of their new people are since I have been watching more of the travel channel’s shows.  Love, love, love Man vs. Food!  I think Samantha Brown is annoying too, but I like to see where she goes to- we went to a great wine bar in Orlando because of her.

I use ya’ll a million times a day – a lot of you guys would probably hate to meet me in person! LOL

I rarely use it when I’m typing on here, but when I speak, it loves to just fly out of my mouth!! hehe Laughing

I don’t hate any of them but some are less interesting to watch.

I am not a big fan of Ask Aida, Alton Brown or Bobby Flay.

I do LOVE The Neelys, Paula, Rachel Ray, Emeril, Guy (Triple D), Ina Garten, Nigella and a bit of Giada…

My hubby and I joke around and call Giada, Giada De La Cleavage since EVERY episode she is showing off her puppies and I don’t mean fur babies! ๐Ÿ™‚

I really can’t stand Rachel Ray. Ugh. She rubs me the wrong way.

I don’t mind Sandra Lee’s personality, but I’ve tried a few of her recipes, and they’ve all been awful. I made a sugar cookie of hers once, and it tasted like play-doh.

I actually really love Alton Brown. Yeah, the sketches on his show are sometimes over the top, but he really breaks down the science of cooking and makes you understand why and how a recipe does or does not work. His show is so well-researched and I always learn something.

I really like Paula Deen, too. Just’s just entertaining. I can’t ever use her recipes because she puts about three sticks of butter in everything, but I love watching her.

And Emeril is always a safe-bet, too. I LOVE his Italian recipes. Yum!

I can’t stand Paula Dean and Rachel Ray.  Both of them seem so fake and annoying to me.  And Paula’s food just looks like a heartattack waiting to happen.

I’m also not a fan of Guy Fieri but I can tolerate him for a few minutes.

I LOVE, Giada, Alton Brown and Barefoot Contessa.  Fiance and I love watching Good Eats. Funny and educational.  And we just love the dry humor.
