Food Network & My Giveaway

Hi! My name is Marilyn and I am a Food Network junkie! Yep, that's me the gal who is known to have the Food Network channel on blaring in the background. Well it seems rather fitting since I love to cook, bake and most of all EAT ! I happen to be a big fan of Ina Garten(Barefoot Contessa) She's constantly feeding and entertaining someone. I wonder often is she's just one lonely woman, Giada De Laurentiis (Everyday Italian) I love this show but I swear there are times I think if she tries to smile any bigger she is sure to swallow her head, Paula Deen(Paula's Down Home Cooking) How can you not love a cook who doesn't care whats good or bad for you as long as it tastes good and she's just so outgoing and bubbly ..yep she ROCKS! Then we have good ole Sandra Lee (Semi -Homemade) I like this show because I'm all for short cuts and cute entertaining ideas but am I the only one that notices she never reveals the tablescape of the day before downing some of the cocktail she made for cocktail time? Last but not least we have Rachael Ray(30 min meals) Can we all say yumm-o! I love her show but I will confess there are times I want to stick my head through the TV to scream CALM DOWN! Wow she's a hyper one but despite some small annoyances she's up there with Ms Paula she ROCKS!

Ok, which leaves me thinking about having a Rachael Ray goodie basket to giveaway for the Bloggy Giveaway. With a RR Garbage bowl, RR Cookbook and I'm not sure what else yet ... What do you think?

Hi Marilyn,

I must confess that I love the Food Network too! At times I do ask RR to calm down (the dog just looks at me while I am talking to the tv).

It sounds like you have had a busy week. Can't wait for the carnival.

take care,

I feel exactly the same way about all those that you mentioned! I also noticed that SL loves her cocktails! :)

I love your blog name by the way!

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks for enterig my contest. I'd enter yours, but I already have that book.

I don't have cable, so when we got anywhere that has it, I'm glued to the food network. I love Rachel, Giada, Paula, and several others as well.

I even fantasize about having my own cooking show out of my own fun would that be!

Hi Marilyn. I also love to leave the Food Network on while I do other stuff. I especially like watching Giada's show. My daughter loves this channel also. She loves loves loves Rachel Ray.
