The Food Network has to be one of my all time favorite things on TV. Ina and Giada feel like my best friends sometimes. Don’t you just want to jump in the TV and cook alongside Paula, y’all?!

Are you a Food Network Star addict? I’m going to tell you the truth… I have never watched it. Shows with competition just make me too nervous. However, when a representative from HarperCollins asked if I would like a review copy of the Food Network Star insiders guide cookbook I responded with an enthusiastic “yes!” And I think I’ll start watching the show from now on. The book is filled with behind-the-scenes pictures and stores from members of the selection committee such as Bobby Flay and Giade De Laurentiis, and other Food Network personalities such as Alton Brown, Paula Deen and Rachael Ray. And the recipes! This book is loaded with mouthwatering recipes I’m dying to try.  

A few of the recipes I’m drooling over:

–      Roasted Butternut Squash with Beet Greens, Goat Cheese, Toasted Walnuts, and Mint
–      Santa Barbara Olive Focaccia with Baked Goat Cheese (hey, that’s my town!)
          Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh’s Lobster Potpie
          Bourbon Pancakes
          Beignets with Rosemary Caramel and Honey
