I got turned on to the Food Network later than some, like within the last 2 1/2 years or so. And I major, double heart DVR because I can tape Everyday Italian, Barefoot Contessa and Iron Chef and watch them when its actually convenient for me.
My friend Paula got me the Everyday Italian Cookbook, and I already love it. So far I've made peas with prosciutto (YUM) and lemon pasta (little too lemony). I can't wait to make more (and have Paula, Joe and Vivienne over to share in the goodies). Grazie!
