I hate watching that channel. Everything they make seems so complicated and fancy! Maybe its just me though, because my mom watches it all the time and makes stuff that she see's on there. I'm just into more simple stuff I guess, and it seems like what they make takes a LOT of effort and skill! What about you, do you watch the food network?

No I usually don't watch it. I'm kind of a picky eater and a lot of the things they make on the shows have ingredients I do not like and they make it look simple to make things when indeed it's not as easy as they make it seem.

I like watching the food channel I like the challenge show where they build different things with food I think its really neat. The things they come up with. As far as the cooking shows yea they do seem like it takes too much to make that crap. They need to get a show where you can only use the microwave and these wonderful tasting meals come out will little effort lol. That would be a great show.

Hi. 4cuteboys. Yes, I have watched this show and many other cooking shows in the past. They do make some yummy dishes. All of them are not too complicated, it just takes practice on making them, that's all. I have never tried making any dishes from this food channel, but I am sure that I would love and enjoy making a couple of them for the summer time.

I don't the actual cooking shows, because I don't cook. I watch the documentaries, like "$40 a Day" or "Ace of Cakes" and the Challenge shows.

I have warched the food channel for several times. I only watch it for fun. You are right, they make some simple things more complicate. I can do some of it in a more easier way, and the taste is welcomed by my family. When I want to try some new food, I prefer the check a cooking book for the recipt. Or, at present, search on internet.

My girlfriend puts the television on this channel for an hour each day. She loves to watch Rachael Ray. I have to admit that hse has made a few of the recipes she has shown on television. Sometimes she just gets a new idea on how to change a recipe she already has.

When I surf channels, I sometimes stop at the food channel. I'm always interested to see all those great food being made. But whenever I watch it, I always get hungry after, that's why I don't watch it that much anymore. I'm trying to lose weight here. LOL.

I do on occasion- My 10 yr old daughter loves the dumb station- She always says mom look at this – isn’t that cool. Then I say do you want to make it. Nope—It looks yuk! Lol… so I don’t even know why she likes to watch it! I agree- I like plane Jane things—not fancy things to eat! I don’t mind watching Rachel Ray and her 30 minute show! Even though it takes her 30 minutes it would still take me an hour!

Yes, I do watch the food channel. I find it very enlightening. I like watching the Unwrapped Show. It interests me on how the candy and novelties are made. The other one I like is about foods from different areas that are their specialty.

Hey, thats so similar to situations at my home too. I hate those chanels and my sister just cant take her eyes of them. She would also try out those dishes. I prefer to cook by my own as whatever comes to the mind at that moment while the cooking procedure is on. Its yummm. :)

I love to watch food channel because i don't know how to cook and want to learn how. In the family im the only one who doesn't know how..makes me shy about that fact. Im very interested and it is not only all about cooking but also they give tips on proper food to take and those ingredients beneficial to the body. Molto Mario cooks very simple dishes and just puts it on the plate to pile up..very simple. Maybe if you gain interest in food will you be able to appreciate its usefulness just like your mom.

I watch it more for entertainment. Some of the hosts are funny and some of the things they make are elaborate. I love Ace of Cakes. I rarely make any of the recipes I see on the shows though.
