In honor of Fourth of July, America's Independence Day, I'm honoring American Things We (I) Love:
America's Test Kitchen
Have you ever seen this show? It's amazing. No gimmicks. No embellishments. No harbingers of death masked as fried food. No one weirdly obsessed with her husband or wearing really heavy eye makeup in her kitchen. This show is legit. It acknowledges common cooking problems that the average home cook might have, and presents reasonable steps for fixing them. AND they have 608 recipes for Apple Pie or Apple Pie-related food items. And if that's not an American thing we should love, I don't know what is.
Up next in our celebration of American Things We (I) Love: "America" (from West Side Story)...
