  1. S10.E02: French Alps

    I've watched very few of these episodes, but I caught that one some time ago, well before he died. It was lovely.
  2. As an introvert married to another introvert, I always laugh at those comments. Are there really people who entertain all the time? I guess there must be.
  3. S08.E01: Cake Week

    Are you speaking of Steven? I think that was his wedding cake, which he made himself.
  4. S08.E08: Forgotten Bakes

    I'm watching the show stopper now, at those lovely molds. I bought an intricate mold (of course, to do a cake from an earlier season of GBBO that I wasn't actually all that fond of). Bakers out there, what sort of cake would be good in a mold like that that ISN'T a savoy cake? Now that fall is arriving I'm ready to do some more baking. It was fun watching Sophie with her petals-- she first made a little dab of chocolate on parchment, drew it out into the petal, then put it in a baguette mold to curve it (and I have so many toys that I even have one of those....)

    well they are just ding dongs instead of ho hos!
  6. The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    that's why I didn't recognize him. I am monogamous to Top Chef. Don't watch the other stuff (other than the British Baking Show)
  7. The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    who can forget Leah, but who the heck is Christian? I don't recognize him at all.
  8. S03.E10: The Final

    that's why I know I could never watch GoT. I can't keep names straight in one mystery-book-at-a-time.

    it really depends on whether you want to do it the Dutch way or the "other"way. I refuse to do it the Dutch way. I'd feel like a poser.
  10. S08.E02: Biscuit Week

    I kept hearing fortune cookies are flavorless. I only know them from the local take-out joints, but to me they are lightly almond flavor. Nice, simple.

    and trying to not be spoilerish for *past* seasons seems beyond the call of duty. In this day and age, people can watch seasons of reality shows on Hulu or whatever in any damn order they please......

    For the pizza, why on earth were they trying to put the pizza on the peel after they sauced it? And it looks like many of them skipped a sprinkle of flour or corn meal or semolina on the peel so that it slides off. Personally I bake my pizza on parchment on the stone. Slides right off my cookie sheet :)
  13. S08.E07: Italian Week

    yeah, I make pizza at home fairly often, and it's "OK" but getting the crust thin is something I guess I don't have the patience for. I have a stone, and use the convection oven at the highest setting, but still.....
  14. Project Runway In the Media

    The way I read that is we of older generations are not in their target demographic. I can't tell-- which show is for the "next generation"? The Bravo reboot of PR or the new Amazon thing with Heidi and Tim?

    I love him! Every time he's on screen I start smiling.
