    I think FN's problems with programming when they decided to add Cooking Channel. So now, Cooking Channel has a lot of cooking shows and FN is supposed to be about Food, not cooking. However, not all carriers offer Cooking Channel with Food Network. Also, Cooking Channel seems to have a lot of reruns of older FN shows, shows from other countries and a few US based shows (i.e. Kelsey's essentials, etc)

    FN is always a 'go to' station for me when I can't find anything else to watch on tv. For whatever reasons, I 'forget' that cooking channel is an option, too. I guess none of the new shows are consistently appealing. On CC, I usually end up watching reruns of Good Eats.

    My favorites are Giada and Ina and their new episodes are usually on Saturday AM's. I don't care for Pioneer Women or Trisha's kitchen.... so, none of their newer hosts have caught on for me.

    I love to watch Bobby Flay even though most of what he cooks I wouldn't even think of eating (I am not a southwestern foodie lol I am not a fan of peppers and other spicy treats).

    I used to enjoy Iron Chef and the Fat Ladies, mostly for humour. Jamie Oliver was good for recipes I could actually use. I've long since bid adieu to the channel because it always seems to be the diner stuff.
    Yesterday we put together a beef stew and today a broccoli/lentil soup. It's cold up here!
    A shepherd's pie variation:
    Base - ground meat, onions, peas and TSP Dijon mustard and 2T. sour cream mixed in
    Middle layer - carrots, parsnips, dash nutmeg and some butter/marg, all mashed
    Top layer - Whipped potatoes (milk and butter/marg added)
    Cook each layer, assemble and put in oven to brown top. Wow!

    I've been baking the last few days... just finished a Gluten Free "Chocolate Caramel Lava Cookie"... I'm not a fan of GF stuff, but mom can't have Gluten so I had to find something to make her... dad likes them... she may not get any since he keeps eating them

    My mac and cheese recipe is nothing special - I use celantini for the pasta, make a medium cream sauce, season with salt, pepper & powdered mustard (1/4 to 1/2 tsp), grate in cheese to taste (preferably multiple cheeses-for me colby, Cabot Sharp, and some grated parmesan, but buying the loose ends cheese in my big grocery store deli is a reasonably priced way to achieve the same thing). Mix the pasta & cheese sauce. Top with fried, buttered bread crumbs (just brown the crumbs in a frying pan in butter). Bake at 375 F for 30 to 40 minutes until bubbly

    Serve with a lettuce/tomato/cucumber/onion salad with vinaigrette dressing (the vinaigrette cuts the heaviness of the mac n cheese).
