This is *exactly* why I like Rachel Ray. She doesn't do anything more
complex than cut & chop. That I can do especially when distracted by two toddlers!!
It also helps that her thing is having a whole meal ready in under 30
minutes. Believe me, when it is 4:45 and the little ones start trying to raid the
cupboards for cookies or something else non-nutritious rather than waiting
until dinner time at 5:15 or NLT 5:30, it is good to know there are things I can
do in 30 minutes that they will eat!!
Of course, I'm also wanting to *improve* my cooking skills so I am also fond
of Alton Brown (even with those obnoxious camera angles) because he explains
things in a way that I can understand plus he's just a little amusing in a
cheesy sort of way.
