Ode to Nigella

I know I'm about a decade late to jump on the bandwagon, but I just recently became OBSESSED with the Food Network.

I will forever be grateful for last Saturday, when I woke up so early that my body eventually rejected standing around high noon and forced me to watch 10 hours of Ina, Giada, and the new love of my life Nigella!

Especially now that it's getting chilly outside and way too dark to wake up in the mornings, all I want to do is sleep in until 10am and watch these beautiful, chubby strangers make dishes I can't afford to make on my own all day long!

Although it's hard to stomach Giada's cheerleader enthusiasm and Paula Dean's multiple butter orgasms, I could listen to Ina and that beautiful, wonderful Nigella all day long.

Something about Nigella tell me in her sensual accent that I was "absolutely forbidden to use anything other than a fork to fluff the rice" made me feel like we had officially become friends.

I also like Mexican Made Easy, but there's something about her frequent switch from English to Spanish that I find unsettling.

Viva la Food Network!!


  1. I'm going to assume that the absence of a comment on Down Home With the Neelys means you haven't seen their show yet.

    There is a strong possibility that their show belongs on a porn channel rather than the Food Network.

    In case anyone else watches their show - do you get the feeling that "mama" is outshining "daddy" and that she finds him more annoying? I predict a solo show for her in the future.

  2. I watched them once but didn't really care for it because a) it's too sexual and b) he is clearly gay. I couldn't handle being the only one in the room who knew what was up.
