    Just started watch the show. First Alex was given a contestant that has won competition after competition…ie..Better Crocker winner for one. Now her contestant was given a scallop to cook for tonights competition….OH Please!!! Why does the hateful, rude, self-absorbed person keep getting advantages. She was given the Iron Chef win when she kept ending up on the bottom during individual challenges, yet she pulls out a win due to her buddy Zacharian being a judge. Why can't she just go away. I love to watch cooking shows, but it takes the enjoyment out of the shows when they feel like the competitions are fixed.

    I love watching Alex. The look on her face while she is staring at a Chopped contestant and chewing their food is priceless. Whether or not the Iron Chef competition was rigged or not, I don't know, but I am glad she won. She can hold her own with the big boys. If there is a chef on TV that I don't like, I change the channel, usually to Animal Planet or The Cooking Channel. If the ratings are down, the chef won't last long. You and I cancel each other out when it comes to Alex.

  3. Without a doubt the word Kielbasa has worldwide recognition, yet it is also often misunderstood. Polish Recipes Kielbasa is the general Polish name for sausage. You cannot walk into a Polish store and say: please give me a pound of kielbasa.

    in the Finale Simon once more did cooking, not mentoring. Had he NOT 'cut the cheese' with the grator For her, she would not have had time to finish her burger. All along Simon has disregarded the rules and actually cooked, not just mentoring or tasting; so unfair. As of this moment I don't know who wins, but I know the mentor who broke the rules, thumbed his nose at the rules and other mentors, and done hands on. I will not watch this tournament again if Simon is allowed to be part of it. He is a bully, a cheater, a dictator, not a mentor. Go away Simon.

  5. A surprising, little known health benefit about these fermented foods was then discovered. It seems that the same fermentation process that both preserves and gives Polish Food Online these foods their distinctive sour-tangy taste are also higher in vitamins and actually help your digestion, remove excess saturated fats and cholesterol, and keep your digestive tract healthy and happy.
