Robin Miller's Realistic Racetrack

At last month's South Beach Wine and Food Festival Robin Miller talked about one of the quirkiest aspects of her Food Network show: those cars that keep driving by!

You've seen them, right? The look has changed a bit from season to season, but those cars just keep on driving by, which is odd because her show is shot at Food Network studios in New York City.

Robin Miller revealed that these cars are, in fact, just video projected onto a screen. (Duh). They weren't always as seamless and realistic, though.

Robin mentioned that for a while they just had video of the same car passing over and over again, which looked strange. And in another, the cars looked like they was crashing right into the window. It took some adjustments to get the cars right.

In one video, a big HAZMAT truck pulled up and a bunch of guys in the full, protective body suits got out in the lawn-- that wasn't that good, either. Or appetizing.

I guess the cars give her show that suburban mom appeal they're looking for.

HA! Has any one else noticed that her show uses some of the same music as does Everyday Italian? 'Cmon. Can't they find something original?

I think I also saw someone ride a bike periodically throughout each episode and the person on the bike was dressed in white. Did anyone else see it too?

I can't STAND Robin. Too weird.
What's with the cooking in jackets? Not a chef jacket, I have seen this clown in a red dress blazer and a very stiff looking corduroy jean jacket type piece. She could barely even move her arms!! Get real. Giada is the best!!!

More jackets please for Robin.
More leftovers for "later".

The contestants on The Next Chef contest were way better than Robin.

She is boring.

Hope she gets grease on the jackets.

OK-does anyone other then me think her food looks disgusting? You can't morph an Italian flavored meatloaf into Mexican tacos and then morph Italian/mexican flavored beef into something else. She uses almost no salt and pepper,or spices so her food must be bland, but she acts as if it is the most delicious thing she has ever tasted. She is as annoying as the Neely's. PS...pull up your sleeves or take your jacket off. I have yet to meet anyone who dresses like that to cook.

I can't believe ANYONE can get away with what this chick does. Her knife skills are nonexistent, my 12 grand-daughter watches her to learn what not to do -Like NEVER salting the pasta water, NEVER seasoning properly, NEVER cooking anything long enough, etc. Get her otta my face, what a phoney.

I think Robin is great. I am a mom of 4 and I appreciate the easy, quick meals - not to mention my kids love the food! I don't care if it's a video showing in the background. It's a nice 'atmosphere' thing!

I agree with many of your comments that Robin should NOT be in the kitchen. She made a comment today about her "rice and peas" saying that she was using "kidney beans" so why do they call it "rice and peas." Maybe she should be informed that the Bahamians use pigeon peas!! Don't make yourself sound so stupid, find out the facts first.

if you want a quick meal watch 30 minute meals or make a friggin sandwich! robin miller sucks! who the hell would precut and then brown bag a "meal kit"??? it's not even practical! PLUS if you have time to walk to the refrigerator and unbag all that crap then you have time to slice up a damn onion! and who the hell makes a cup of rice to feed 4 damn people??? i agree that she has no idea how to season anything! what the hell is a pinch of salt going to do to 4 friggin chicken breasts?! she has no clue how to eyeball a measurement to save her life.. a handful equates to a tsp??? maybe in a 4 yr old's hand! i think her jacket wear is to bulk up some cause she's clearly an annorexic. what's with the fake tan and the burgundy lipstick not to mention the turtlenecks! and what's up with her walking over to the oven and even though she's there, she's still walking.. on her tippy toes none the less.. did anyone notice that she actually made a step-up a few times so she can reach into the oven??? she's a tool and the only place she should be cooking is flipping burgers at mcdonalds.

What's with all the haters? Robin is not the best cook in the world (it's true she can't eyeball measurements), but those of you who fear your daughters may learn improper knife technique or label her an "annorexic" [sic] or resent the fact that she doesn't know that "Bahamians use pigeon peas" should feel free to get a life. Better yet, start your own cooking show. I'd like to see how far you get with that.

If GIADA is the best than that means you are child- traffickers?
GREDARK just let loose and that means ORGICO and it does mean " eyeballing".
