Rachel Ray's Kids Cook-Off

If you are a regular reader, it's no surprise to you that I love food. I've posted recipes on here and even reviewed cookbooks. It does not make me a chef, by any means, but I have fun trying to create delicious food.

I learn almost every tip from Food Network TV. I watch a lot of the shows on it. Masterchef is probably my favorite, for the cool competitions. I like Cutthroat Kitchen for the same reason. I also like watching the 'juniors' get their shot. Masterchef Junior is one that truly awes me. These young kids can cook up a storm, and frankly, put my cooking to shame. Now, the Food Network icon, Rachel Ray, is serving up a new culinary show for juniors. 





This is a six-episode series starting on Monday, August 24th at 8pm EST. Eight young hopefuls will be tackling some grueling cooking challenges, as they are put to the test to compete for a $20,000 culinary scholarship and their own web series on FoodNetwork.com! How cool is that?! They could literally be the next Rachel Ray or Bobby Flay!


I can't wait to see some of the guest judges. Robert Irvine, Marcus Samuelsson and Fabio Viviani are all chefs that I like. They will be among the guests that will be appearing. Not only do they judge at the end, but they mentor the kidtestants. 


They show them how to prepare the best balanced tasting meals, as well as creating desserts inspired by the movie, Hotel Transylvania 2. These kids not only need to have what it takes in the kitchen, but their personalities need to shine through on camera. Only one will standout and rise above the rest to take home the grand prize and be crowned winner of the Kids Cook-Off. 

Won't you be watching to see who wins? I know I will be. Catch it all go down on Monday, August 24th at 8pm EST on Food Network TV.

  1. My grandson loves watching cooking shows, so I get stuck watching some of them with him. the funny thing is he is THE pickiest eater I know. the shows are addicting and this new show will be such a wonderful opportunity for kids....much better than the other 'real life' shows out there.

  3. I used to watch her show with my hubby, he is the cook in the family. I even bought him a couple of her books for Christmas one year. Glad to see she is hanging in there.

Canvas Champ (With #Giveaway)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
