Worst Cooks on Food Network Premiering in January

This title makes me laugh – Worst Cooks – because I could totally be on that show! Well, I may not be the worst cook, but am very far away from the best. ha! Many times you’ll find my meals far from perfect. My poor family. My husband’s mom was a great cook and sometimes I can just hear the words going through his head. Any kind of trick or tip to help in the kitchen I like to know. That is why it is fun to watch Food Network. I do learn things!

At the start of the year, The Worst Cooks in America returns to tv. The hit competition series transforms kitchen disasters into skilled cooks and five-time winner Chef Anne Burrell is returning for a rematch against Chef Tyler Florence.

We’ve been watching Chef Tyler on the Great Food Truck Race and I have to admit we’ve become quite addicted to that show and I want to try allll those yummy foods. We keep hoping they will come to our city so we can try one of each truck.

Premiering on Sunday, January 3rd at 9pm ET/PT, the seven episode series of Worst Cooks pits Anne against Tyler, each leading a team of disastrous cooks in an intense kitchen boot camp designed to vastly improve the food skills of their recruits. The contestant who makes the most impressive culinary transformation is awarded a $25,000 grand prize, in addition to delivering victory and bragging rights for their team leader.

Worst Cooks is comical, competitive and ultimately, inspiring,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. “Under Anne and Tyler’s guidance, these cooking-challenged contenders transform their hilarious kitchen blunders to refined culinary techniques – and the journey is truly entertaining to watch.”

Will your family be sitting down to watch Worst Cooks? Or maybe you’ll have your ipad ready in the kitchen to learn from their messups and get a few new ideas under your belt. It will be fun to see how they improve as the season goes on!

Halloween Baking Championship on Food Network

Food Network is full of Tricks & Treats with their Halloween Baking Championship hosted by Richard Blais. Mark your calendars for Monday, October 5th at 9pm ET for the four episode series.

Halloween Food Network

Halloween is one of the best holidays to get into baking fun. My favorite recipe to do with the kids is making rice krispie treats with orange food coloring and then shaping them into round pumpkins. A short green piece of licorce for the stem tops it off. They are super cute and perfect for a school treat.

Sugar cookie cutouts are another speciality. Grab your fall themed cookie cutters, colored frosting, and lots of different types of sprinkles and candies to create a yummy mess. Let the kids decorate them all and see kind of madness they can come up with!

More about the Food Network show – from spider cupcakes, to cheesecake coffins, to witch finger cookies and mummy macarons, seven of the country’s top bakers compete to create Halloween’s spookiest and most creepy crawly confections. In order to survive this haunted competition, contestants must prove their baking abilities and impress judges Ron Ben-Israel, Carla Hall, and Sherry Yard.

Only one winner will take home the grand prize of $25,000 and the title of Halloween Baking Champion!

It sounds spooooooktactular! Just think of the cool ideas we will get it from watching. The kids will have me in the kitchen baking and creating next month to get in the Halloween mood – which is scary in itself!

Will you be tuning in for all the tricks and treats?
