    I did not know that Bobby Flay was a horse enthusiast. He does keep himself very busy with the cooking shows, restaurants and horse racing too? Wow! Love the name Super Espresso :)

    I have been a Food Network fan for many years but was totally grossed out by Sunny Anderson today. She was using the same cloth to wipe her hands and sweep things into the trash then wiping off the cutting board after wiping eggs off her hands. I have never seen her before and will switch channels rather than listen to her idiotic banter in the future.

    I enjoy watching Sunny Anderson,however why doesn't the network do something about cleaning the dirty cabinets in her kitchen,I can get into her cooking, but get totally grossed out every time she opens a drawer and you can see how dirty theses cabinets are. What gives this is a cooking show, I don't see this kind of nastiness on the other cooking shows. Please clean up.
