First - an admission:  I've never watched the show Breaking Bad.  In fact, I wasn't even aware of its existence until after the final episode aired and friends of mine started talking about "Felina" around the office.  The name instantly peaked my attention - as a life-long country music fan;  I recognized the name Felina as the female character in the 1959 song "El Paso".

Who Is Sweet Genius Chef Ron Ben-Israel?

I watch the Food Network from time to time.  Okay, I watch Food Network a lot more than I care to admit.  Ina Garten and  Alex Guarneschelli are two of my personal favorites.   Bobby Flay has grown on me (my first impression of Flay as cocky and self-centered has softened) - and so has Guy Fieri (who, when he's not criss-crossing the country visiting greasy spoons, actually has some pretty-decent cooking chops).
