I noticed on another thread that some people here like the show 30 Minute Meals on Food TV. I happen to love the show and am a regular on the forum. Actually, another member of the forum told me about this forum and well, here I am . I just wanted to say that I have made a lot of her meals vegetarian. For example, tonight I made her Steak and Pepper stirfry, only I used tofu. Ok, that one is a no brainer, but tomorrow night I am making her French Country Chicken using seitan. So if anyone is interested on how to make her recipies vegetarian, and sometimes vegan, just post here and I would be happy to help.

I love that oven that she uses on 30MM. Too cool. That, and the fridge. I would love to have both of them in my house.

No one but me watches a cooking show and digs the appliances more than the recipes (yes, I'm odd. I admit it)

Secura, Food Channel = Food Porn? I never thought of that before, but now that you mention it......


I think I need a
now and I don't even smoke.

My brother watches that show all the time .. He's constantly making recipes from it. For whatever reason, I don't often see recipes on there that appeal to me to veganize though.

I found her cool and cute when she just pull out the bunch of green onion (with rubber band on!!) out of the grocery bag and chop it and toss it on her final stuff---never bother to wash it, sheesh.....I can't do that but I think that's so cool.

I can't stand that woman, something about her just drives me nuts. Maybe it's her voice or her annoying personality I haven't figured it out. There is just something rather fake and uncomfortable about her.

I LOOOOVE her. Often times when she's making a meal she tell swhat the veggie option would be, too (not vegan though, usually lacto-ovo).

Also, she has a veggie cookbook out, too, fyi. You can get it at Amazon.com.

I pretend she's my friend and I say to my husband, "Oh, Rachel had such a good idea today!" (Where's the "crazy as a loon" smiley face???)

I love this chick! She's a totally wacky. I'm addicted to Food TV , i watch it more than any other channel. I also like Alton Brown, the Good Eats dude. Hmm, now that i think about it, it's kinda odd that i watch Food TV so much considering the food made is 99.% meat & seafood dishes.

She does make it seem easy to just throw it all together. But I've heard her mention a couple of times that she washes all her produce when she comes home from the market, then stores it. I find this different, because I've always heard that you shouldn't wash it until just before use, because it holds more nutrients. I dunno. One thing that I wish she'd mention is to compost the organic matter in her "garbage bowl". But I have learned some good tips from her shows! Happy cooking, everyone!

One of the reasons I love her show instead of some of the other cooking shows is that the ingredients aren't prepared by staff members, layed out in little glass bowls, ready to be dumped in. She actually takes the time to open canned goods and chop her veggies. Makes it seem more realistic.

After seeing this post, I watched the show on Friday for the first time. She happened to be making vegetarian low mein. I think I'll try it.

I like her and I like Alton Too. I watch other shows on Food Network, but these are the only shows that really have anything featured on them would actually make. Emeril just gets obnoxious sometimes. Shannon/Zimma

I've always looked at the Food Channel as my porn. The week of Valentines is always the best with all those chocolate shows. Good lord!

I can't stand Rachel Ray. There is something about her that grosses me out. Her show about eating out on forty dollars a day, makes her look like an out of control pig. Whomever was dressing her should be fired. Her pants grew so tight the white lining of her pockets began to show. Rabbit ears!

The way she brings her mouth to the food, instead of bringing her food to her mouth, makes me think she's desperate, and cruising toward obesity. And, she talks way too much.

She does look a lot better on her new show. My boyfriend and I think her dad must own the network.

I love Alton Brown.
