So, I'm the one on the couch in the middle of the night, secretly watching Cupcake Wars, Chopped, The Next Great Baker, Cake Boss, Paula Deen.. the list goes on. And on. And on....while I hope that Logan never sees some of the amazingness that is the cooking channel and Food Network.
Am I the only one? I can't take it anymore! As able as I am in the kitchen, I have yet to successfully create a gluten/corn/egg free cupcake that tastes and bakes up anything remotely like the real thing. It's intimidating! It's depressing! It's... NOT FAIR!! Where are all the foodie shows without gluten, dairy, corn, soy, or eggs? Sometimes, I feel they ignore the fact that there are people with different nutritional needs out here in TV land. Wanna know why? It's impossible to have a showdown with restrictions like that.
That's it. I have made an executive decision. There needs to be a show for restricted foodies like us. Get on it, Food Network! I have faith in you. Scour the country. Heck, scour the world! Find me a molten chocolate cake, or a pasta dish, or bread, or pie, or pan seared something or other, or sour cream bechamel (wait, that's totally against GFCFSFCF. Forget the bechamel) that could go up against The Next Iron Chef or Chopped All Stars, but adhers to the guidelines we have. Give us inspiration! Give us hope! Give us something to get excited about, as we go on our weekly shopping trip and spend the equivalent of a mortgage payment on groceries our child can eat. Oh! OOOOH! Give me a sopapilla that tastes like the real thing, puffs like the real thing, but isn't the real thing!
