    Can anyone help me out with what shows to watch. I lost a bet to my girlfriend regarding the Pistons and now I have to cook dinner for her for 2 weeks straight.

    I watched some show called Take Home Chef on TLC, and it was pretty good, so I've got some meal ideas out of that. Any other shows? I guess I have time on my hands now that the playoffs are over for me.

    food network is always a good place to start. 30 minute meals with racheal ray might give u some good ideas, and she USUALLY keeps it fairly simple. Of course, my idea of things u have "on hand" and hers are quite a bit different. easy entertaining with micheal chiarello (spelling might be wrong on the last name...sorry...) is another good one, he explains things pretty well, and does some great pastas. Hope this helps...

    Rachel ray is the biggest joke of a cook ever to grace the television.

    Have you ever cooked before?What are your strong points? What are your weaknesses? Some can bake, some can broil, some can fry , some can BBQ.
    For me, I hate and have difficulty cooking chicken, I always seem to overcook; but my beef dishes are awesome.

    A real good tip on cooking for special occaions I have found is to combine normally hot served food with normally cold served foods. It kind of offset things and puts a unique spin on it.
    For example: Scallops wraped with zuccinni done with a skewer on a grill lightly covered with a garlic/wine butter sauce and mint leaves.
    Scallops are a hot served
    Zuccinni a hot/cold served
    Garlic is a normally cooked
    and the mint adds a cool flavor.
    :)

    if you can bake an BBQ.. go simple but awesome.. BBQ beef or pork sandwhiches;Grilled portabello mushrooms lightly topped with carmilized onions and sprinkled with goat cheese, black bean salad and cornbread!!
    You can even make your own rolls, since you can bake!!
    for desert do a fruit pizza with ice cream!!

    dude check out the whole foods website -- they have a section with a whole RACK of recipes. I think about.com does as well. You dont need rachel ray to make a meal in 30 mins!

    but re cooking shows, I love the Bobby Flay Boy Meets Grill show. Now you have me hungry (and thinking and motivated), so i just did a search. . . .Here's a link to some of his recipes.
