Any Food Network fans here?

I have been addicted to the Food Network since last November when I saw the Iron Chef for the first time. Any one addicted too it?

Some of my faves besides the Iron Chef show are Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, and as annoying as he is, Emeril Lagasse.

Any any other faves?

Love Food Network. Hate Iron Chef. Too often the food they are cooking just looks gross and unappealing.

Love the Food Network. My favorites are of course Emeril, Paula Dean, Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa) and Giada De Laurentis. My favorite time to watch is Saturday morning. Just saw Martha, Ina and Giada all in a row. Then that asshat Bobby Flay comes on with his testosterone grill show and I have to turn it off

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

Paula Dean is my absolute favorite. She cooks some great down home dishes. I like Emeril also, he has so much personality.

My ultimate favorite is the food marathons. Like Pizza all day, barbecue, etc. I tivoed a whole day of pizza and later made deep dish pizzas.

The tailgates are my favorite also, their is so much food around.

I love her cause she just downright seems like she loves what she is doing. Can't wait to eat at her restaurant when I am in Savannah this Sept.

I don't know darling but sometimes that humming drives me crazy and it just gets me when he will add say sherry to a dish and the audience goes bonkers but they are quite cause he just might be adding plain ol chicken stock.

But I still watch him cause he is an incredible chef (been to two of his restaurants and they are phenomenal) and somewhat entertaining.

Then again I love Rachael Ray and my friends think she needs therapy so go figure.............

The only cooking show I enjoy watching on there is Jamie Oliver. I'll have to give the Iron Chef a look.

I've seen Iron Chef a few times. I find Takeshi Kaga funny and disturbing at the same time.

I think I should watch more Food Network to acquire some needed skills. I was flipping through and saw the Great Garlic Cookoff where they had Garlic Ice Cream.

It sounds scary, but I would try it.
