What Does it Say About Us…

    I don’t know the answer to your question. Let me pose another. What does it say about us that we love those cooking shows, all the while eating out more and more?

      That’s a good question, too – but you’re asking it of someone who doesn’t eat out much and finds himself watching less Food Network fare because it’s not about cooking as much as it once was. Watching some of the programs gives me ideas for things to try in the kitchen. I’ve also heard some people refer to such programming as…food porn.
