First of all, I want to start out by saying I love you Food Network. Food network has provided many hours of entertainment and learning for me. I love it. My cooking has really improved directly because of them.
On that note, I am going to use a bulleted list of things that really annoy or make me want to fix it. My OCDness takes over and I can’t really help it!
I’m sure there will be a number of people complaining to me about all this but I really don’t think the 5 people who read this blog will really care. :D
- When I watch Ina Garten on Barefoot Contessa, I love it. I love her, the show, everything about it. Except for when she puts her utensils on her counter. I realize the countertop is clean and very beautiful. Why ruin the beautiful-ness by putting dirty utensils you just mixed something with on it? It’s really small, and but honestly can’t you put it on say a paper plate or paper towel or better yet, the cutting board? Just wondering.
- Giada De Laurentiis. Oh my, I love your show. I love your food. But I’m wondering if you could tone down on the cleavage. It almost seems like it’s on purpose. Now, I’m not complaining about it, I think you’re very beautiful, but I’m not watching your show for your cleavage. LOL I’m watching to see what kind of awesome recipes you got. Also, the camera seems to linger around it sometimes. I’m just saying.
- The Neelys. First of all, let me say this. I love your recipes, even if they’re not exactly healthy. That’s not what your show is about. I understand. Your food is awesome and gives me great ideas. But seriously? I know you guys love each other. I get it. But do you have to flaunt your happiness in front of everyone else? There’s no need to get cheesy. There’s a bedroom for that. It might be OK in your kitchen, but honestly, I’m trying to watch a COOKING show, not Loveline. You might also wanna cut down on the number of times you say “y’all”.
I’m sure I have more, but I can’t think of them right at this time. Those are the ones that are clearly on the top of my list. What do you guys think? Any pet peeves of your own?
