Why Can't We Just Have a Decent Cooking Show on TV??

I wish I had alternatives to suggest to you, but alas I completely agree with you so I don't. Today's cooking shows are for entertainment value, not for real cooking challenges. My recommendation would be to check out this and other sites to find food blogs with tasty recipes and inspiration to challenge you. There are a lot of them out there, and it takes less time than sitting down for a show ;-)

What did you have for lunch today?

Homemade taco salad with cilantro lime dressing.

Are Manners Getting Worse?

Table manners are definitely getting worse. I can't tell you the number of times I'm out to eat and someone's chewing with their mouth open, has elbows on the table, is talking with their mouth full, and the list goes on. Growing up my mom drilled table manners in to our heads; it's a shame polite dining is getting lost. What do these people do when they have a business dinner at fancy restaurant?
