    I work during the day and therefore I miss all the cooking shows. Why can't you have more of them at night. I find that st night it's chopped, iron chef and diner& dives. Which are all good , but the same things over and over can get kinda of boring night after night. Can you please do a little of both. I love learning new recipe.
