American Cooking Horror Story

I just got back from three weeks of being away from a TV, which of course means hours of watching TV to catch up on things I missed.

Most of it was cooking shows.  I have a bit of an obsession with them.  Anything that has to do with cooking and reality, I'm there.  I may not continue watching all of them, but I pretty much want to see each new show, at least once.  I just like learning new cooking techniques, and watching people being abused (when they submit themselves to it out of greed or desire for fame... I do not condone other abuse, just so you know).

I must say, though it is old news, I was really disappointed with "Extreme Chef" on Food Network.  I thought the title had such potential, but then when no one was shot/stab and forced to make 5 star meals to get medical treatment, I totally lost interest.

But it wasn't all trashy cooking shows.  After hearing so much about it, I had to check out the pilot episode of FX's "American Horror Story."

If you've not watched it, here is a teaser video:

 And here is an artist's rendition of me watching this show:

And of course, I cannot wait for the second season of "The Walking Dead" premiering on Sunday. Big surprise there?

And thank you to those who are sharing my link and making pledges to my Cheeseblarg Takes Manhattan project.  Even a dollar helps.  Every time you pledge or share (or contact said Late Night show telling them how awesome I am) you are helping me fulfill a life long dream... and again, there are rewards for helping!


  1. I only watched 5 minutes of that show and it scared me and I made my husband turn it off. :( On a happier note- are you familiar with the book Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day? I have brioche dough chilling now for caramel sticky rolls.

  2. I'm not, but probably because I am "allergic" to yeast and haven't had actual bread in well over a year.

  3. I've got TV to catch up on too. Hmmm...

  4. I love cooking shows but Extreme Chef is just a throw up of every bad reality show/recipe in one conglomeration.

  5. I just realized that your above drawing of yourself watching that show would be *perfect* printed on toilet paper rolls.

    (Hope you don't take that the wrong way!)

  6. I am a cooking show addict and it drives my husband crazy, or at least that is what he says. I think secretly he loves them as much as I do. He used to be a professional cook which I think has something to do with it.

    I tell him I watch shows like American Horror Story as a compromise so it isn't all cooking and police procedural shows, but that is a lie. Turns out I love the hell out of some good horror. It is something we can bond over...

    Wait...that sounds bad. I am not sure if it is healthy to bond over mutual love for horror...Although I have a friend who is a professional haunter and that is why his wife fell in love with him and they are the most normal loving couple I know. Yea I would say it is totally healthy to bond over love of horror.
