Food Network’s reality series The Next Food Network Star isn’t one of my favorites (especially as so few of the winners really DO end up becoming “stars” of any merit), but I confess I got rather caught up in it this season. For once there were a few contestants I really liked (namely Justin, Ippy and Eric) along with those I really couldn’t stand at all (I’ll be nice and not name names.) Last night saw the final six come down to hour as Ippy and Nikki went home (yay for Nikki going away, boo for Ippy. I predict he still will get a tv series SOMEWHERE as he’s just too adorable and I’d love to see more about Hawaiian food on tv.)

The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
