Got to agree about liking Alton Brown, or at least I used to when he had the program 'Good Eats.' He not only explained how to do something in an entertaining way, but why a given particular method would work, and how to apply that method to other things. Now he's doing nothing but being a game-show type MC, which I can easily live without.  I've actually eaten at a few of the places featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives (one was actually a dive in Las Vegas).  Have to admit, they were all pretty darned good.

The husband voted for crisp, so that's what I ended up making. It almost gave me hope for spring. I do have another bag of rhubarb in the freezer, so I'm thinking that a cheesecake might be on deck.

I don't watch any food cooking programs. We don't have cable anymore, but even when we did I would sometimes come across a show and it would just make me mad (and also it felt like work). I do like Alton Brown, but he reminds me of an evil ex, so that's that. I like Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, and also Man vs Food. But in small doses. Gianna is too skinny-never trust a skinny cook. If I had to pick a celebrity chef that I admire, I'd have to go with Jamie Oliver since he tries to do some good in the world. And I have quite a few of Nigella Lawson's cookbooks-she's about as no-nonsense as you can get.

Reg: the recipe called for using the rhubarb as a topping, but I needed to cook it, so I mixed it in with the cream cheese, etc. Worked for me.

Chopped is about the only program I like on Food Network, but mainly for my curiosity on how the cooks incorporate the weird ingredients. That amazes and inspires me. I usually mute all the "gab" and hype. And really? Some of you actually like Alton and Guy? And I hate Robert (Rest. Impossible). Bobby Flay is good and Gianna is a bombshell, but overbearing. Is Paula officially back?

Reg, my mouth is watering! I used mine up long ago and can't wait for the spring crop to mature. My rhubarb plant has a heavy snow cover on it, so it should do just fine in this crazy hot/warm/cold/severe freezing winter we have had.

I'm with you....teaching cooks, not ....whatever.  I'm also weird enough to love Alton Brown, though I've detested what he named his show before he even had a show.  I mean, even when I was a small child, I knew "good eats" was vulgar, ignorant, bad English.  Used to see it on signs on greasy-spoon joints, and that's what I associate the phrase with.

BUT I love the way he teaches the science of good cooking. I sorta wish don Herbert was still alive and lively...they'd make a good team.

I watch the food network.....BUT......only shows where I can learn something.......not these damn fool contest types! I hate the ''I'm better than you'' crap. I do like Guy Fieri & a few of the others who travel to different places, but the actual cooking shows I like are the single chef doing a few different dishes.

PS: I used to love Food Network till they started doing stuff like "Chopped" and "Cupcake Wars," and all those other "humiliate the contestants" shows, but what they did to Paula Deen without so much as a by-you-leave was unforgivable.  From what I understand they never asked her exactly what happened, or when, and they didn't wait for the court case to play itself out.  They took the word of a money-grubber who objected to Ms. Deen's brother's behavior BUT stayed at his restaurant for FIVE YEARS (!!!), anyway.  Something fishy there...and I don't mean what was on the menu.

I just love both pumpkin pie of any type, AND ginger snaps... pumpkin is kinda bland, so I thought ginger snaps would give it a bit of a boost (I am NOT gonna say, "Kick it  up a notch"!!!)

Comment by Reg MM on March 3, 2014 at 12:28pm

Oooo! Randall-that's an evil evil idea! Did you mix the rhubarb into the cheesecake or use it for a topping? sk8eycat, I love pumpkin cheesecake, and I've made it with a graham cracker crust and with a gingersnap. Both highly yummy.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 2, 2014 at 8:23am

Reg (and others), I used my freezer rhubarb to make a cheesecake with a graham cracker crust.
