  1. All Episodes Talk: Baking with Gesine

    Gotta love Verizon Fios Mobile app - sitting in Brooklyn and just used it to set up recordings. But then, I am at a Holiday Inn Express!
  2. But that's why it is so funny and entertaining! Love the quirky town and their inhabitants.
  3. Nitpicking

    The timeline on the Rory goes golfing was wonky, but I did enjoy the sweet interactions between Rory and Richard. And "the most odious woman on earth" makes me laugh every time.
  4. What's For Dinner?

    This year we are not going south of the Alps in the summer. Too hot! We are going to Hamburg, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, Bern, and Interlaken. My husband wants to go to Spain, so I'm thinking next year QM2 in September, visit friends in London and some countryside, then train to Spain.
  5. Nitpicking

    The writers don't give a flip about reality, common sense, or continuity.
  6. What's For Dinner?

    For the next 3 1/2 weeks, it's whatever is on the menu. No planning, shopping, or cooking. Woohoo! We are in Brooklyn tonight, and will eat BBQ at a place across the street. Then tomorrow it's on to the Queen Mary 2 for 9 days to Hamburg.
  7. Iron Chef Gauntlet: Gladiators Ready!

    Exactly! Alton responded to a tweet that this is a competition - if you want fake, sorry, not happening here.
  8. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Microsoft and Amazon are in the Seattle area. Google is in California.
  9. S13.E05: Celebrity: A La Cuisine!

    If you taste vodka and then taste gin (Beefeater or Tanqueray), you should be able to taste the juniper berry in the gin.
  10. Daniel wrote some episodes. Are we to believe he hates men too? I always found the episodes Daniel wrote to be darker and more of a downer.
  11. Considering you can make ricotta cheese, not finding it in a store is not an excuse.
  12. All Episodes Talk

    I have a grilled chicken breast recipe that uses rosemary and is delicious - you marinate the chicken in olive oil, lemon juice (fresh), Dijon mustard, and dried rosemary.
  13. Iron Chef Gauntlet: Gladiators Ready!

    Sunday night makes so much more sense than a Wednesday. My cable guide has it Sunday at 10 after the final episode of Worst Cooks. ETA: Thanks for the heads up on the day and time change. We're leaving on the 17th on the Queen Mary 2 for Hamburg. They have TVs in the cabins, but I don't remember FN being one of the available channels. I set the DVR to record them.
  14. Iron Chef Gauntlet: Gladiators Ready!

    My online Verizon Guide is showing Guy's Grocery Games at 9 pm on the 16th. However, on April 5th, FN made a press release saying Iron Chef America would return at 9 pm May 16th.
  15. Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    My husband is a coffee drinker. He grinds whole beans every morning. He bought this Cuisinart model over 4 years ago and it's still going strong.
