Coming This Week on Food Network – October 27th

I’ve just scanned the Food Network program schedule and noticed that they’ve updated their website.  I’m not sure that I like it as well as the old one.  It’s chock full of information for sure, but I think it’s rather hard to navigate to find your favorite chef’s programming for the week.  For me, the old “drop down” menus worked better.  I’d be interested in hearing from those of you that use the site frequently and your reaction to the new format. 

 

However, once I found the programming for the week, I noticed that one of my favorites “Tyler’s Ultimate” is cooking up some great dishes this week!  On Tuesday (28th), he’s preparing an “ultimate” lasagna that combines ground beef and Italian sausage and lots of ricotta and mozzarella cheese.  The fact that he’s also using dried lasagna noodles is a plus, as that’s really a time saver.  Sounds yummy, so I’ll try and catch that episode.  Later in the week (30th), Tyler’s also making tacos with roast beef.  If you haven’t tried tacos made with roast beef, instead of ground beef, you really should.  Their a bit more hearty and just add a different twist to the classic ground beef tacos.  He also includes a fabulous recipe for salsa.

 

Finally, what’s a week without a sweet?  On Saturday, Ina Garten shares a great recipe for Blueberry Crumb Cake.  It’s chock full of blueberries and has a crunchy topping.  This recipe is in one of her cookbooks and I’ve tried it.  Very easy to make and a great way to use any leftover blueberries that you have in the frig or freezer.
