Welcome Food Network Canada!

Just wanted to give a quick hello to all the Canadian visitors who came my way thanks to the post on Food Network Canada's official blog, Food For Thought.

You may remember my original post about Food Network Canada. If not, let me remind you that there are several shows only available in our neighbor to the north that I wish we had.

Food For Thought, run by Catherine Jheon, is very comprehensive and features behind the scenes photos, interviews, food trends and more. Whatever hidden, hard to find blog Food Network USA has doesn't even compare:-)

Thanks a lot foodtv.ca!

Oh my God that is funny. My mom and I love to watch and eat Ina's food but we always have to call all the ingredients "good" as we are making the dish otherwise its just not as satisfying!

Wait...foodnetwork (USA) has a blog? Without your link, I wouldn't have known. Why, cause their home page sucks! Okay, it's not THAT bad. But I think they need to look to our cousins to the north and get some ideas from their website. Did you see that you're on the "blogs we're reading" list on the foodnetwork (usa) site?

samantha: i know what you mean:-) whenever we're cooking we ask each other "is that 'good' _________?"

melissa: yeah, the food network USA's blog still seems to be in its early stages. i never remember where it is and never seem to save the link. and, yes, i DID notice i was linked on their site which is great! i do appreciate that they've taken the time to notice all the food blogs out there:-)
