Food Personalities

I'm watching an episode of Chuck's Day Off online, and few things popped into my mind.
  1. I started thinking about my favourite cooking shows and why they are
  2. I started thinking I might have to very soon go back to eating meat after a decade of being vegetarian
  3. Damn, Chuck Hughes is gorgeous, where can I find a guy who looks that good and cooks?
I'll tackle #2 first.   I used to cook meat, I used to eat meat all the time. I have to say, I've been missing it on a cooking level for the last while.  I think mostly because I have been so addicted to cooking show, and I want to be able to really start cooking again.  Not to say that I'm not, but I've been a vegetarian now for ten years.  I became veggie because all my friends at that time were and they used to come here for dinner couple nights a week.  I got sick and tired of making two versions of things that I started to cook just vegetarian on the nights they came for dinner.  Then next thing I knew, I was cooking vegetarian every night.  Now, those people are long since gone from my life for various reasons, and I find myself very bored with the cooking I'm doing and want to start cooking some of the stuff I've been seeing on the cooking shows, on other blogs, and in the cook books.  I just want to expand my cooking talents.  So, I think I maybe heading off the turnip truck soon.

#1 My favourite cooking shows.  I loved watching PBS on the weekends when I was a kid cause that's where all the cooking shows were.  Julia Child, Justin Wilson, Jeff Smith the frugal gourmet , Pasquale, James Barber(urban peasant) They were all just so unique. 
The only really "modern" chef I really liked watching is Michel Smith with his Chef at Home series. And of course Chuck Hughes.


  1. I've always wondered how you veggies do it! I guess I'm a carnivore at heart. HAHA! Thanks so much for becoming a Rosebud...xoxo

  2. Kristian... Thanks. For some reason the comment didn't come through to email. Just noticed it now.

    And for some people being Vegetarian is easier then others. The first 6 months were the worst. It's been ten years now, and it's only been the last two months that I've been feeling like I want to go back to the way I was. Mostly because I'm just bored with my cooking, and not being able to go to restaurants here in town.
