Goodbye For Now, Duff

I read some sad news the other day...Food Network has canceled Ace of Cakes after 10 seasons.  I love this show!  I mean, who doesn't love Duff, Geoff, and Mary Alice?  And the cakes!  They are always pretty awesome.

Now, I will admit that I never really watched it on Thursday nights when the new episodes aired.  I watched them in reruns over the weekends. But I always enjoyed them.  I also read that this is not the end of Duff.  Apparently, Food Network has other plans for him.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see what those plans might be.

Luckily, there are several other shows on food network that I love to watch.  Last Sunday they crowned the new Iron Chef, Marc Forgione.  I was glad he beat out Chef Marco Canora.  For some reason I can't quite explain, I never really liked him.  I also love watching the Challenge shows.  There is something about watching bakers stress for 8 hours over a huge cake that makes me happy.  Yeah, I'm a little weird that way.  I also want to be one of those baker one day.  Brandi says I could do it with my mom, and we would win.  She's my biggest cheerleader!

Then there are the actual cooking shows.  Those chefs always use the best cookware and kitchen gadgets.  I love Racheal Ray's spoons that have the slots in them to rest on the side of the pots. Whoever came up with that idea is a genius.  Oh, and I can't even tell you how much I love Alton Brown.  That guy is a walking encyclopedia of food knowledge, which I think is awesome.

So, as much as I will miss Duff and the gang, there are enough other shows to keep me tuning in to Food Network.

I didn't like Chef Canora either. I think it was because he was a cry baby. Seems like everything that went wrong or got misplaced, he cried about it. Made me think he was paranoid about the other Chefs trying to get him.

I almost forgot. Happy Thanksgiving!
