As you know, I’m Mr. Food’s Senior Writer, which means, as part of the production team that brings you the Mr. Food segment every day, I work on planning our topics and writing the scripts that eventually make it on the air for you to enjoy. Now of course this is a group effort and there is no “I” in team…so I’d like some more feedback…not just from my co-workers, but from all of you! Yes you!!
I get so many differing opinions about what recipes everyone would like Mr. Food to share each day. And as you know, he’s got loads of recipes and ideas – you’ll see thousands of them right here on MrFood.com. Our Mr. Food Test Kitchen is constantly developing more of them… of course, with Mr. Food himself rolling up his sleeves to join them often; and yes even all of us here suggest some of our own family recipes for you to try.
And being an empty nester, just cooking for myself and my husband each day, I’m really “in” to the recipes for two or recipes that freeze well in portions so I can cook once and have great meals waiting for me, especially if I’ve worked late on taping day.
Meanwhile…back to all of you. Some days I hear rumors that everyone wants healthy foods because they’re on diets or they are watching cholesterol or fiber or sugar… Then I find out…everyone wants rich-tasting desserts! Other days I hear it’s all about comfort foods…especially Amish recipes and it goes on and on… Of course one thing we all have in common has to be budget-friendly recipes…especially in today’s economy.
Oh boy…it’s not easy trying to please millions of taste buds…but try, we do…we really do. Our goal is to offer up a great variety of recipes so that one day the recipe might fit your needs and the next day it might please someone else. But what I’d really like is to get a great conversation going – on Mr. Food’s Facebook page. “Like” it if you haven’t already done so…and start letting us know loud and clear what you like to eat and hope to see us come up with. You won’t be talking to yourself, we will hear you and you will eventually find out that what you’re looking for might already be online or we will work on it and you’ll find it in one of our new cookbooks or on the air. So talk to me…and to thank you doing that, today I want to tell you about a couple of my favorite Mr. Food recipes.
For all you empty nesters like me, if you have a spouse who loves steak…you have to try our skillet Porterhouse for Two Steak! It’s awesome and so easy! Of course, I do cook and bake for my family and friends when they come for a visit…and for dessert – I can’t miss with our Million Dollar Pound Cake – it is the most fool-proof, easy, tip-the-scale-decadent pound cake ever. If you’re on a diet…forget it. If you’re not, you have to try it!
So now that I told you a little about what I like… please write back and share your comments…here on our blog pages and even better on Facebook, so we can get a dialogue going and find out more about all of you, to make our show and our web site even better for you! We really do appreciate everything all of you have to say and just like Mr. Food says, “Together we’ll share the “OOH IT’S SO GOOD!! ®““
