I confess, I love cooking shows on TV. They are basically all I watch these days. And one of my favorites (despite knowing surely how manipulative and staged much of it is) is MasterChef. I also know the US version supposedly can’t hold a spatula to the mega-popular Australian version, but I’ll take what I can get! I love playing along at home, trying to imagine what I’d cook for the Mystery Basket challenges and whether I could succeed or fail at the Pressure Tests. It’s cheesy and fun – but just don’t put cheese into your apple pie like contestant Michael did last night!
If you enjoy MasterChef, you can check out my Squidoo lens MasterChef US 2012: Season 3 where I’m posting episode recaps, polls for viewers, and links to where you can find out more about each contestant.
