Sometimes I just slip through the cracks. I'll try to do better!
I really enjoy watching SOME cooking shows. Notice I said SOME!
I have no interest in the highly tense atmosphere in the kitchen of a lot of the shows, especially on Food Network. I seldom watch t v anymore but pick and choose the ones I want to watch streaming.
The reason I am telling you this ... I do have a reason... just hang in there.
I enjoy Ina Garten... She great at what she does but she laughs all the time and that bothers me. Don't ask me why... it just does.
I really enjoy Ellie Kreiger... I like that she tells you how each ingredient helps you be healthier.
I found this chef on Discovery+ and just enjoy him so much but he's only had a handful of episodes and then Covid hit. Don't know if he will be back. But, his determination to produce good, healthy, fresh local food all with one good hand and one prosthetic arm amazes me.
And, I love 'The Lost Kitchen' also found on both Magnolia Network and Discovery +. Such a different take on a cooking show! So elegant and classy.
Now, why I mention all this?
I have a confession to make. As I watch each show and the chef opens their oven to slide a dish inside, I am busy looking to see if their ovens are clean! Isn't that a crazy thing to do! I do see some 'dirt' sometimes and it makes me feel like maybe I am not such a bad housekeeper after all.
I don't use my oven anymore. Cooking for one, I find my little toaster oven works just fine for me. And, hey, it's so easy to keep clean!
Y'all have fun cooking. I'd love to hear who your favorite chefs are!
