How I Know I'm Not Addicted to Internet Recipes

I've been cooking since I was a kid. I started making Mexican TV dinners, which was a big deal growing up in New Hampshire. My friend Dana taught me how to make fried rice -- with salami chunks. He used the rendered fat from the salami to cook his onions. I also was the house barbecue guy, making burgers, steaks, and chops for my parents and me.

Then, I started watching TV cooking shows, Graham Kerr and Julia Child, and copying what they did. I've accumulated a rather large number of cookbooks of every variety, too.

Now, I watch Internet cooking shows."VideoJug" has good lessons and sometimes the Food Network recipes are fun to make. Lately, I've been following a great cooking show on the Web called "Hilah Cooking" because the recipes are (generally) healthy and fun, and the show's host -- Hilah Johnson -- is very natural, knowledgeable, and entertaining.

That's not the case with all Internet chefs, however. Check out this one. She makes a stir-fry recipe with Minute Rice (yuck) and spends practically the first three minutes of her show explaining how it takes only five minutes to prepare it. Geez!
