Hello, My name is JerseyHousewife…and I’m a FoodNetworkAholic.

Food Network’s Chefography week was last week. I was able to DVR most of the episodes I wanted to see. The kids and I have been slowly making our way through each show…with a twist. I thought it would be fun to watch a Chefography episode and then try a recipe created by the chef or cook featured.

Here’s how it went down:

Chefography: Rachael Ray
Food: Summer Shrimp Rolls (Yum!)

Chefography: Giada de Laurentiis
Food: Stuffed Shells with Arrabbiata Sauce (Double YUM!)

Chefography: Bobby Flay
Food: Napa Valley Burger with Sweet Potato Fries (Gotta have more!)
(O.K. I’ll admit it…I cheated on this one. We actually went to Bobby’s Burger Palace for lunch. I didn’t actually cook.)

Chefography: Paula Deen
Food: ??
I’m undecided on the Paula Deen thing. I’m not a big fan of southern style cooking. We just watched the Chefography today and I have a newfound respect for Paula. I do have a recipe for her Top Secret Chocolate Co…
