The Food Network has some really great new shows -I'm not really a "foodie" but I will tell you these shows definitely peaked my interest! First is Sunny of Cooking for Real. Her focus is affordable, hearty meals using ingredients we can find in the kitchen. To me, that sounds great-and keeping it affordable is very important in these economic times. Food costs are rising, eating out is getting way too expensive and if Sunny can keep me in the kitchen, then her show is definitely for me!
Next, we have Ask Aida. The really neat concept with this one is that it is an interactive show, meaning you can literally ask Aida! Who'd have thought with all the technology that we have that we'd be able to go one-on-one with Aida, who will be able to answer your questions live! Text, email, call-in, wow-so many options to Ask Aida, even for those that are not tech savvy, you can always call her and she will be able to answer your questions.
