I adore cooking!!!!!!! I am a big fan of the Food Network, cookbooks, allrecipes.com
(a great resource for recipes by every-day cooks), and testing out my new explorations on family and friends. I thought I would feature some of my favorite cooks from the Food Network and their style of cooking so if you are interested in cooking as well you will know who to follow(that is if you aren't already) Also I am featuring some recipes that are staples in my recipe box.

First of all some of my favorite people from FOOD NETWORK. . . .

Paula Deen, she is my go-to-girl with down home cooking that literally feeds the SOUL! One of my favorite things about her is that during her cooking shows she samples her food, which I completly emphasize with!

Next up, Giadia De Laurentiis (dont you just love her name!!! If I could pick any other name I think I would steal her's.) Her show features Italian cooking and entertaining. I love watching her shows to see how she features different meals and serves them to her guest! Very unique serving and she sets up great centerpieces as well!

Now on to some of my favorite recipes, if you are a cook and have some great recipes as well send them my way I love to try new recipes!!!
