I had a very nice, very relaxing and enjoyable Saturday. Worked on the schedules for the site, played some video games, caught up on a lot of TV, and spent lots of time with family. Sunday looks to be more of the same. The only blip on the radar is my left mouse button on my laptop’s touch pad is making a clacking noise. Thankfully it’s under warranty, so HP is sending me all the shipping stuff, so I’ll be sending it off later this week. Again thankfully, we have my old laptop that my husband’s been using, so I’ll be able to use it while mine is getting repaired. Pain in the butt, but whatcha gonna do? To take my mind off that little problem, let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.
Another new food competition show starts tonight. America’s Best Cook gives home cooks from across the country the chance to win $50,000 by competing under the guidance of Food Network chefs: Cat Cora, Tyler Florence, Alex Guarnaschelli and, my personal favorite, Michael Symon, each representing the South, West, East, and North respectively. Sixteen home cooks will be divided into groups of four per mentor, and then the mentor takes two of the four dishes from the four cooks and put them up to be judged. I love, love, love Michael Symon. I like Cat Cora and Tyler Florence. So I’m really looking forward to this one.
On tonight’s episode, “Making the Cut,” sixteen of the country’s best amateur cooks arrive in New York for their chance at $50,000 and the title of America’s Best Cook. But first, they must compete to represent their region, in one of two spots on a Superstar Chef Mentor’s team. Iron Chef Michael Symon will be choosing from the North, Iron Chef Cat Cora takes the South, Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli is heading up the East, and Food Network star Chef Tyler Florence is representing the West. The Mentors will be choosing wisely, as they will also be out of the competition if both of their cooks are eliminated.
Check out the home cooks and see how the mentors work with them tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, American Dream Builders, Food Court Wars, Cutthroat Kitchen, Believe, Catch a Contractor, Crisis, & The Mentalist.
