I made it to Chicago and through the airport without a hitch. Now I'm nestled safely in the "comfort" of my hometown. Ahhh....
It's been a fun year for Food Network Addict:
In January, I spoke with Ellie Krieger about her Food Network special, 10 Ten to a New You.
In February, I traveled to the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Fest in Miami... and even chatted up Dave Lieberman a bit!
In March, we got an inside view into Aunt Sandy's life (and Kurtain Kraft Kraziness) with her Chefography.
In April, we saw a Deen brother kissing another guy (it was Jamie, though, so the confusion still remains) and a super-hot Cat Cora photo spread in FHM magazine, prompting her to get outta that modest apron a little bit more often.
In May, Giada got frisky with Workout's Jackie Warner on the Today show.
In June, we learned that TNFNS's Josh Adam Garcia, (a.k.a. JAG) jagged up his military service record by saying he served in Afghanistan.
In July, JAG "dropped out" of the competition, despite being one of 2 finalists (Amy Finley won) and Nigella battled it out against Madonna for the title of "ultimate MILF."
In August, the New York Times dissed Simply Delicioso, Rachael Ray turned 39 and got a new 30MM kitchen.
In September, Charm City Cakes debuted its blog and Mario left the Food Network (or did he?).
In October, Alton Brown showed off his hot hairnet and Amy Finley's The Gourmet Next Door premiered.
In November, Giada announced her pregnancy, Michael Symon was crowned the Next Iron Chef, Jamie Oliver's return to the FN was announced, FN proofreaders got FIESTY, Emeril Live got canceled, and I told Anthony Bourdain to shut up.
And in December, Paula finally spoke out about the Smithfield controversy.
I'm hoping to have some exciting things to share in January about this blog and future projects. We shall see. Keep your fingers crossed.
In the mean time, thanks for your continued reading and support. Your comments and emails are what make doing this site fun.
We sure had an exciting year, filled with lots of exciting stories, news events and shows. I'm sure 2008 will not disappoint. Have a great holiday season!
