How Alton Brown May Be Breaking My Heart

Alton Brown was doing an interview with the LA Times about his new book, Good Eats: The Early Years. He mentioned that his wonderful show on Food Network, Good Eats, may not last past this year.

Say it ain’t so!!!!

He goes onto to say that he won’t kill it before its time but he doesn’t want it to jump the shark. AB think that he isn’t popular with the kids and man is he wrong! Not only do NerdDad and I both love the show (and just about every nerdy adult I know) but my kids love him!!! I hope he is just hedging because my heart might be broken if he were to leave. I already am edgy that there isn’t more AB on Food Network as it is!

New Food Network Show

NEW YORK – March 3, 2009 – Production begins this week on Sandra’s Money Saving Meals, Food Network’s new daytime cooking series hosted by Sandra Lee (Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee), which premieres May 10th at 12pm ET/PT. Sandra whips up delicious recipes perfect for every day of the week, all based on her “triple A factor” of accessible, aspirational and affordable. To maximize cost-saving success, she shares unique ideas for savvy supermarket shopping and proper pantry stocking while highlighting each meal’s unbeatable cost per serving. Sandra then prepares clever leftover dishes from each episode called “Round 2 Recipes” – one in the show and another on FoodNetwork.com (www.foodnetwork.com). Renowned for her trademark 70/30 Semi-Homemade cooking style, Sandra makes saving money a breeze for culinary experts and cooking novices alike.

Sandra’s trademark 70/30 Semi-Homemade philosophy translated to television with Food Network’s Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee and to the Internet with SemiHomemade.com. Sandra attended University of WisconsinLa Crosse, launched several lines of home, garden, and craft products including Kurtain Kraft, worked with QVC, and produced a successful DIY home improvement series.
