That Food Network certainly is pushing Miss Robin Miller these days, aren't they? When did she get all Holly Hunter with herself? :-)
I think with the inevitable decrease in available time on Rachael's schedule, they're turning to the next "quick and easy" gal! Robin Miller!
I think I've mentioned before that I rarely watch her show. I've chalked it up to the fact that I don't have kids or the desire to prep a full week's worth of meals on Sunday night, freeze 'em, and throw things together throughout the week. I think her ideas are great for busy moms and people who need big meals every night of the week to feed their huge families.
Maybe I'm wrong. I have caught a few bits here and there. She was one of the few FN stars I didn't see the whole time I was in South Beach. I should have gone just to see what her crowd looked like.
I have looked at her online cookbook and it actually looks pretty good. I've already made the Salmon Cakes with Sesame Wasabi Cream (but I just skipped ahead and made them right off the bat and didn't "morph" it from a previous meal).
What are your thoughts on Robin?
OH, and for you Iron Chef fans, Food Network Canada's blog Food For Thought has a cool behind-the-scenes recap of writer Catherine Jheon's trip to a taping. Unfortunately for we USAers, the episode she describes is not airing tonight in the states.
It's snowing here! I miss the sun!
