NBC's Food Fighters?

I also noticed last week (don't remember from the first episode) that the home cook's dish was always tasted first.

I agree that some of the "judges" have the palates of five year olds. I also wanted to shake the woman who complained about Cat Cora's pork having some pink.

NBC's Food Fighters?

It is definitely fixed. Other than the milk and cookies and the tomato soup/grilled cheese, it was clear the pro should win.

Food Network Star July 27 - Spoilers

If Sarah wins, I will be done.

Last elimination, the viewers voted that she should have gone home....if she wins, it is clearly fixed. She is like nails on a chalkboard.

NBC's Food Fighters?

Under the right circumstances, absolutely.

Cook-Out restaurant?

I like their burgers, especially because you can get a chili cheeseburger and they are the skinny flat fast food burger that I like for chili cheeseburgers.

Their milkshakes are outstanding. And their hushpuppies are good too. They are inexpensive and a solid fast food choice IMO.

NBC's Food Fighters?

I agree with you. I definitely think at least some of the chefs threw their rounds intentionally.

Seeking recommendations Staunton, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg VA

This needs to be on the Mid Atlantic board, not the DC board.

richmond vs charlottesville, va

What part of town? That is a big variable. Any type of ethnic cuisine?

richmond vs charlottesville, va

Actually Richmond has quite the reputation as a food centric city for its size.

What time of day and what route will you be taking and what are you interested in? How many people and what ages will be with you?

food tv show called the kitchen?

I agree they are trying too hard to be like The Chew. Chew got off to a rough start (they were strangers aside from Batali and Symon) but it clear now they are friends off the set as well and have developed a good chemistry between themselves and with the audience.

I watch The Kitchen on occasion because it's an opportunity to see Geoffrey Zacharian at work.

What's your favorite way to cook?

Braising. Clean as I go. All day with no distractions.

Hair found in the food...

People slay me and not in a good way.

I have long, curly hair and no matter how careful I am (especially when cooking for others, I wear my hair up in a pony tail) it seems on occasion I will find my own hair in my own food.

It happens...doesn't mean someone is negligent.

Also, chances are no one will die or get sick from hair.

The restaurant accepted responsibility and acted fairly.

Headed to Richmond Help

Special occasion....Lemaire at the Jefferson Hotel.

Casual...Comfort on Broad Street, Black Sheep, Edo's Squid or Millie's.

Outdoor dining is not common in the RVA area.

Rotel Velveeta Dip

No draining of the tomatoes.

I love it and have since I was a little girl.

I love the classic (just Velveeta and Rotel) but also like it mixed with browned ground beef. When all bets are off, I brown a pound of spicy breakfast sausage (Bob Evans or Jimmy Dean) and add to it.

I love Proper Pie. Unfortunately I am not able to get there as often as I would like.

Wedding Dinner for 20

Azzurro is the first place that came to mind for me. Ask for Wes and he will take care of you.

How goes Mrs. Rowe's?

I have only been for breakfast and it is unchanged, IMO. We also always have to bring home a pie.

Is alcohol almost always a part of your meals/get togethers?

We always have alcohol at gatherings. Nothing dry about us...lol. Our bar is stocked better than a lot of restaurants.

The Next Great Food Network Star - 2014

When she was leaving the podium at the red carpet event and made that very strange face and did the weird things with the hands, my reaction was "Please let her be the first to go."

What reasonably healthy options have you found in the fast food chain world?

Chick-fil-a grilled chicken sandwich or wrap. Side of fruit.

The Next Great Food Network Star - 2014

I watched it and think it could be an interesting season. I like the butcher girl (at this point I am sketchy with names) and am sooooooo glad that obnoxious Donna woman is gone.

I watched Star Salvation on line as well and it's not bad.

Review - The 39th Annual Greek Festival - Richmond Va.

I haven't been to the Greek festival in many years and it is no longer about the food, IMO. For the food, I'd rather go to one of RVA's Greek restaurants and have a meal that has not been in the freezer for months and get to sit and enjoy it rather than battling, parking, crowds, etc.
