Here you will find links to some of my favorite cooking related
sites. Check back here often as I update and add new links. And feel free to
send me your suggestions.
- From the same people who publish
Cooks Illustrated magazine
(yes, I subscribe to it). They have a show is on PBS, and are the "Consumer
Reports" of cooking, taking no money from advertisers so they can remain
unbiased. Truly a good show, a great magazine, and a great web site.
This is the only web site I pay to subscribe to, and it's well worth it,
just for the recipes
- Again, a great source of entertainment and cooking
knowledge can be found on Cable TV, this at the Food Network. Top picks for
best show on the Food Network include:
Emeril Live - with Chef Emeril Lagasse. If you've
never seen him cook, you don't know what you're missing
Good Eats - with Chef Alton Brown. He can be
corny. And he definitely is entertaining. But Alton Brown knows
his cooking, and his show is a great source of knowledge and information
about the food you cook, as well as a tutorial on how to do it.
Iron Chef America- If you haven't seen this show, you don't know what you're missing.
And as a big bonus, Alton Brown is the host/commentator.
Party Line with Dan and Steve - A new show
with the winners of the recent Food TV version of American Idol, I
guess. They are pretty good and pretty entertaining, and make some great
The Barefoot Countessa - Ina Garten cooks
good food with simple ingredients. Rich, mind you, but very good. I've
tried a few of her recipes and they are all hits.
Paula Deen - She is as southern as can be. My
only regret is that I did not eat in her restaurant when I was in
Savannah.... but I will for sure, next time.
Martha Stewart - Not currently on Food TV,
but I sure wish she was. I miss her and like her food and her style a
lot. Besides, she's half Polish!
30 Minute Meals - Rachel Ray is very perky,
but it's hard to not like her. She's got a nice personality, great
smile, and cooks well too!
About.com - The
Food section of this web site has a lot to offer--many great recipes for all
types of cuisine from all over the world. Even when I search Google for a
recipe, I often end up here.
Better Homes and
Gardens - Everybody has web sites these days, and you
should be glad that Better Homes and gardens is online. Can't think of
a thing to make for dinner tonight? Or for that party next week? Or
need a quick and easy dessert? Well, this is the place to find all
those things. Whenever I want to find a recipe, this is my first stop.
I've kept your interest this long..... now....
what you've been waiting for: my
recipes! Technically, these are all
"someone else's" recipes. But I've put them here, so I feel
I can take some credit for them. And I've made them and survived, so I
can take even more credit.
