I need to watch the new episodes of Cooking for Real and Ace of Cakes that I missed (sorry about not posting about last night's FIFTH season premiere!), plus there's a new ep of Simply Delicioso this Saturday I'd like to check out, and Next Food Network Star on Sunday.
Also, I've still only seen the first episode, "Honey," of How'd That Get On My Plate?
How was the "Milk" episode this past Monday?
So far, I think Sunny is great in the series. I loved seeing her in the beekeeper gear.
Still, I wish that the honey episode had focused a bit more on what goes on at the bee farm instead of trying to fit in segments on multiple products (barbeque sauce, nuts, AND cream soda). Maybe showing how the raw material makes its way into one finished product would allow the show to devote a bit more time to the ingredient's journey.
Featuring all those products gave the show, to me, too much of a Marc Summers Unwrapped feel... which shouldn't be all that surprising since the same production company that does Unwrapped, High Noon, is doing HTGOMP?.
I like Unwrapped, don't get me wrong, but I think Sunny's show has the opportunity to go into a new direction. It still has time.
